I absolutely love this tea! I think it is awesome that it has the creamy taste already built in rather then having to put it into the tea! This is my go-to Earl Grey drink!

This tea is my idea of heaven. I discovered it at a local tea room in Delray called Shaffer’s and it’s now the only thing I drink whenever I go there. Apart from the lovely moniker, the taste and aroma are spellbinding to an Earl Grey lover. Even the blue hue of some of the flowers in this loose tea are breathtaking. I could seriously compose a sonnet to this tea.
Did I just get a bad batch? I first tried this tea as a sample and brewed it for 3 mins. I took one sip and got a mouthful of citrus bergamot! Way too intense. I had to pour it out. I then came back to steepster and went to adagio website to check reviews and no one else had the same experience. So I tried another cup. Same experience. A mouthful of bergamot and lingering after taste. Ugh!
I’m not the biggest vanilla fan so I was skeptical of having this tea. I got a sample and now I’m sad that I’m running low! This tea is very similar to the Earl Grey Bravo but has a touch of vanilla and bit of a smooth cream flavor.
Flavors: Cream, Vanilla
The Earl gray i have tried in the past has been from tea bags and have never liked them much. A friend gave me a sample of this is not as overpowering as a full Earl Grey, the smell when you open the bag is divined, it has a light fruity sub taste. I plan on keeping this one in my cupboard

I’ve been really into earl grey creams lately, so I figured since this was in the box, I would give it a whirl. It’s not bad, but it doesn’t rank up there with the Argo Earl Grey Creme, which is my current favorite, though I do have some of the Zen’s version on the way to me which has been touted as the best. We’ll see. Not bad, just not memorable.
2 tsp + sweetener
I got a sample of this and was not impressed. It was very perfumey, and not really smooth. I tamed it by mixing it 50-50 with Adagio’s Vanilla black tea. That did the trick! Now, it’s creamy and what I expected an Earl Grey Cream to taste like. This also solved the problem of what to do with the Vanilla Black tea that was only okay. This blend elevated both of them.
I still will not buy either of these teas, though.
The rating I’m giving corresponds to the unblended version. Blended, I would give this tea an 85.
The scent of this tea is lovely, full of citrus, floral and vanilla notes; however, the flavor is mostly floral and there is an unpleasant aftertaste.
This was steeped using boiling water for about 3 minutes. The flavor was barely there, so I left it for another minute at at 4 minutes, it seemed better.
The tea has a light bitterness, but it’s not outrageous. I don’t taste much of the vanilla/cream that was promised because the floral flavors steal the show. The problem is that they aren’t terribly pleasant.
The tea feels a little chalky, and the aftertaste is strong. I have tried Earl Greys that I like, but I don’t think this will be one of them.
From the Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea Box #2
Meh. The vanilla in this is nice and strong, but the base tea seems weak which makes the tea seem watery. I could probably play with the parameters and find something that I enjoy, but since I’m already in love with Zen Tea’s EGC I will just stick with that one.
