I love Earl Grey, and this version is full and creamy with lovely vanilla overtones. I still add milk and sweeten it, but even without milk it’s very smooth. I drink this regularly in the afternoons when I’m craving chocolate.
72 Tasting Notes
Teavana is often a bit too bold with flavours, but a few of their staple teas really hit the mark. I steamed (okay, microwaved) half a mug of milk, and then steeped an extra-strong brew to add to the milk. The result was creamy and delicious!
Nice, strong cup of black tea.Very good with milk, and the Assam gives it a nice jolt without being too overpowering.
Tried this last week, and OMG it’s lovely. Creamy!
I agree with aug3zimm – this tea is very cantaloupe-y and juicy, and yes, pleasantly weird! :) I think I would like this better as an iced tea, rather than a hot tea, but it’s still very tasty and not too syrupy-sweet.
I love this tea. I drink this tea often. It’s just dang good tea. Robust black tea with a distinctive taste that goes fabulously with milk. MMMM.
I put milk in everything (even darjeeling), so I like ‘em hearty. Tealuxe’s version of Earl Grey is fabulously creamy and smooth. I LOVE this tea!
I visited a friend this past weekend and drank this as both an iced and hot tea. It is lovely and smooth, and the vanilla tastes like vanilla, not some chemical extract.
Tea’s Tea is the only bottled tea I can drink, and the Golden Oolong is my favourite. Honest, awesome tea!
I don’t know why I like a fast-food sweet tea so much. Sweet tea itself is a different type of animal than regular brewed tea; it has a syrupyness that’s awesome. And McDonald’s does it right. :)
Starbuck’s Chai latte, whether hot or iced, is a wonderful, creamy treat. One of my favourite cold drinks!
I agree that this can be a bit strong with the bergamot as well. However, I drank with milk and sugar, and it settled down into a wonderful Earl Grey. Bright but not too peppery.
Bracing. Strong black tea with bite, but still very smooth. I take mine with milk and sweetener, and this keeps me going through my afternoon slump. It’s coffee for non-coffee drinkers!
I tasted a combination of MateVana AND Rooibos Chai at Teavana today; it was bright and aromatic, and I had to try it as an iced tea. It’s fabulous, and has a complex yet creamy flavour.

I may have a bias because I generally don’t like tisanes, but this particular tisane is so cloying with its over-the-top flavour. I mixed it with a basic black tea to bring down the syrupiness a notch, which generally helps, but the cinnamon in this tea overpowers everything else.
I normally shy away from peppery teas, but Adagio’s Golden Monkey is very smooth and satisfying. jtchampeau, I’m going to have to try a cold brew the next time I have it!
I agree with TeaBoat – this tea is downright happy. I use it for both hot and iced tea, and the mango is a pleasant reminder of summer. Fruit teas can often be too cloying, but mango pairs very well with black tea.
Strong, flavourful Earl Grey that goes very well with milk. Earl Grey is one of my favourite teas, and Caykur makes a full-bodied range of black teas that get me up and going in the morning. :)
I’m on the fence about this one, but I can’t give it a thumbs-down due to my own pickiness. The peppery character of this Earl Grey makes it a tad too astringent for my taste. Still, it’s a good interpretation of Earl Grey for those who like a very bright tea.
It’s like liquid cereal. :) I love the nuttiness of Genmai Cha, and Peet’s does it well, with plenty of flavour.
I have my darjeeling with milk, and this darjeeling maintains its character even with milk added.
Delicious hot, but I mainly use it for iced tea, and it’s lovely and sweet without being too overbearing.
This is one of my go-to teas for basic black tea. I love this tea, especially the one with cardamom in it; it’s just smooth and fabulous.
