I actually received this tea as a sample with my order and I will be forever grateful. It is like drinking something wonderfully green, sunny and tropical. I did identify one thing that I was unhappy with while I was sipping this tea on my couch: I didn’t have any palm trees or blue ocean in my living room. Thank you Joy’s Teaspoon! This will be on my next tea order.

This is the second tea I have tried from Joy’s teaspoon and yet again I was not disappointed. The first thing I noticed when I opened the package is how fantastic this tea smelled. Citrusy/Floral Bergamot followed by the strong sweet scent of vanilla. I brewed this tea at 205 degrees for four and half minutes and found it to be perfect. It tasted smooth, creamy and had a well balanced blend of bergamot and vanilla.
The only thing that kept me from giving this tea a higher score was the fact I developed a slight slick feeling in my mouth about 20 minutes after I was finished drinking it.
Regardless, I really enjoyed this Earl Grey Creme tea.
**Update: Ok, so I tried this tea again this morning and that slight slick feeling that I noticed the first time I drank it was gone. I will definitely be ordering this again.
