From DAVIDsTEA

A creamy twist

Lovers of Earl Grey adore this creamy alternative to the original blend. You’ll recognize the same high-quality black tea, the same citrus burst of bergamot oil, the same beautiful grey-blue petals. However this version adds a touch of vanilla, and the result is an unexpectedly rich, creamy taste experience. (MK Kosher)

Ingredients: Organic: Black tea, cornflowers. With natural vanilla and bergamot flavouring*.

Smell: Unbrewed, reminds me, strangely, of licorice candy. Definitely the lower, kind of throaty vanilla-cream, but with a sweet, in your nose candy store licorice. Once brewed, the scents are much mellower. They’re still there, or I was expecting to smell them, not sure, but it’s all low notes, smells very comforting and creamy.

Appearance: It’s loose leaf black tea. The cornflowers and marigold are not as vibrant as the pictures, but I wasn’t expecting that. They’re definitely there, and I’d rather have them look a bit faded than have a bunch of color preservatives, you know?

Brewing: Suggested 4-7 minutes, brewed for the full 7, because I need caffeine to be a functional human being. Nordic mug with filter basket. Not sure about the temperature. I let my electric kettle come to a boil, then waited a few minutes for it cool down. Suggested temp is 205 F, so I would have been fine to just pour it on, but I hate bitter black tea, so I was overly cautious.

Taste: It has a pleasant smooth, round feeling that lingers in the back of your mouth. Higher floral notes, not a bit of bitterness. Very drinkable.

Verdict: 3 out of 5! This is good stuff, even without sweetener. It’s organic and kosher, but not fair trade, so I’m not sure it’ll be one of my go-to teas. Also, I wish the natural flavoring wasn’t there, of course, but vanilla bean is crazy expensive, so I understand the use.

Heavy on the floral, low on the bergamot. The vanilla is a nice touch, but I doubt I’d buy this again.

I had no idea I could find a tea that I liked better than my Twinings Earl Grey. This tea has very similar properties: mild but full of flavor, and not ever bitter – no matter if oversteeped. I don’t add milk to my tea, so I couldn’t imagine having a ‘creamy’ flavor of my Earl Grey. Lo and behold – the addition of the blue cornflowers gave it that extra special something that elevated my Earl Grey experience to a whole new level. I was surprised! And delighted! I ran out to buy a tin for home and a sachet pack for work. YUM!

I usually LOVE earl grey tea… Especially in milk. But this tea had a heavy taste of black licorice… Which was less than enjoyable. Not my favourite but could potentially be someone else’s if you like black licorice!

I don’t think that I would have recognized this tea as an Earl Grey because the bergamot is just a hint in the background. It is quite tasty though, and different from any other black tea that I have tasted.

This was nice. The bergamot flavour is very subtle. I brewed the tea too long, but that creamy aroma is appealing.

This tea was perfect – very creamy and smooth. I really needed the caffeine this afternoon. Trying to de-stash some makeup online – never knew how stressful that could be coordinating all of the sales :/

Anyhow – I’m going to try and enjoy the rest of this blend this week as my AM tea. Such a nice treat served hot with milk

I love this one. Creamy and dreamy and perfect for a cold & grey day working at home. I would repurchase.

Let’s start with the fact I L-O-V-E Earl Grey. I love Earl Grey tea, cookies, donuts, cupcakes…actually I even own an Earl Grey perfume.

My first experience with a ‘cream’ Earl was at a mom to mom sale where there was a Steeped Tea sales rep sampling Earl Grey de la Creme. I was astonished with how dreamy it was. At the time was note a tea connoisseur by any means. But I’ve always remember this experience.

This past Christmas I acquired Cream of Earl Grey from DavidsTea. It’s really nice, but I think Steeped’s was better. I’m always surprised by the licorice notes in this tea, which I dont really associate with Earl Grey. I had some friends over yesterday and one was really surprised at the flavour of this tea. She said it was definitely a different twist on the Earl, but good. (Emphasis on the word good, rather than amazing or great)

Flavors: Bergamot, Licorice, Sweet
