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)

I am not a fan of bergamot but I actually like this well enough. Crazy. Vanilla is a magical substance! Granted, I did add milk and sugar because I was apprehensive about the blerg, but those two combined with the vanilla tamed the flavor beast that is bergamot so that it floated in the background and was largely inoffensive. If you like regular earl grey, this tea would probably be amazing. Thanks, Virginia, for talking me into trying this one! Who knew I could enjoy a tea with bergamot in it?

I don’t think I’ve ever tried Earl Grey, always figured it was up there with the classic teas that you add milk to, which I am not a fan of. So I never bothered trying it. I’m glad I did though, because I realize it’s not all that terrible!
I can’t really compare it to any other kind of Earl Grey, but it was alright. Not my favorite, but not terrible either! It just makes me feel like Capt. Picard. xD Makes me wanna watch The Next Generation of Star Trek xD
So after folding ALL the laundry (like 5 loads ugh), I thought I deserved a treat. So I went into my tea cupboard and picked this one, walked over to my steeper, went to pour it out into the receptacle I use for disposing of leaves and AHAHHHHHHHHHHHHHD OMG OMG OMG OMG WTF IS THAT ON THE WINDOW?IS THAT A COCKROACH?!? WE’RE MOVING! TOMORROW!
Upon further investigation, it was very clearly not a cockroach, but some other inoffensive outside bug, thanks to my boyfriend who left all the doors and windows open earlier. Thank you Jesus. Whew. i really need this cup of tea now.
Man this stuff is good right now! I love the smell: all sugar and vanilla and anise. I always drink this with a splash of milk, just to make it a little softer. I may have added a bit too much milk though, because all I taste is the vanilla right now, with maybe a touch of something else in the background. Boo.
I’m upping my rating on this one. I really enjoy it.
Tried it for the first time after receiving it as a “presenter gift” from a conference I recently attended and presented at.
Normally, as should not be a surprise to anyone that reads my tea notes, I’m not a fan of any kind of “plain” black tea. Yes, I consider Earl Grey to be a “plain” black tea. I don’t care what you consider it :) This one has more “fancy things other than black tea leaves” added in, so I was excited to try it. May I have finally found myself a “plain black” that I want to keep stocked?! Could this possibly be the case?!
I definitely get creaminess, I definitely get Earl Grey, I definitely get black tea (didn’t forget about it while steeping, so didn’t get any astringency), and I definitely get “something else”. It’s almost a chocolatey flavour to me, which makes no sense, I know. But there is a hint of “something else that’s sweet” playing around in the background.
Shocking to admit, but I REALLY like this one. Could it be that I’m growing up into a plain tea kind of person?! Shocking.
Verdict: a creamy yum. Will probably buy more when this is done.
I’m finding out that vanilla is one of those flavours in tea that is really picky for me. Sometimes it works, but a lot of the time it doesn’t. Luckily, this blend is one of the ones (the only one, I think) where it works well and adds flavour without making a mess of things.
I didn’t taste much bergamot in this brew, but that’s okay. I’m happy having one less thing in my cupboard.
This is my second EG Cream blend – the first was by Zen Tea – and I must say that this one hasn’t impressed me quite as much.
The vanilla-cream flavours in this one are robust and well-crafted, but I think the EG falls a bit flat. It simply lacks the crisp bergamot notes that I’m used to in my EGs and that’s a bit of a deal-breaker for me.
