From DAVIDsTEA

Smooth operator

This deliciously smooth white tea blend is basically Earl Grey’s younger, cooler cousin. It’s lightly floral, delicately sweet and refreshingly citrusy, studded with yogurt pieces for a touch of creaminess. But before you take your first sip, give yourself a moment to enjoy its fresh, lemon-and-bergamot aroma. It gives the old classic a welcome breath of fresh air.

Ingredients: White bai mu dan tea, green tea, lemon peel, freeze-dried yogurt, marigold blossoms.

Smell: just like an earl grey
Colour: a nice yellow
1st steep: Surprisingly mellow taste, with the white tea taste peeking through. I definitely get the earl grey taste but much more mellow and slightly sweeter with the little creamy touch from the yogurt.
2nd steep: 90degrees, 4min—still citrusy, but less earl grey tasting. It is still sweet with a hint of creaminess
I will certainly re-buy this one

Grabbed my usual 10g of this one today when at the store to try it out. Dry it smells lovely, all lemony with no backhints or anything making me question if I’m going to like it. Once brewed my first sips were mostly a light lemon flavouring, making me wonder where the cream was, other than in the ever so slight floaties I saw as I pulled my infuser. A few more sips and I found the cream and it added a nice note. As the cup cooled, though, I found that I noticed the flavour less and less, and just kept drinking it because it was there more than anything else.

It is a nice tea, but I don’t think I’ll be restocking since I already have a white lemon which I prefer. Still, this is the first tea from Davids in a while that I’ve given a solid ranking to!

Dry Leaf Nose: Delicate white and green tea, with notes of lemon and bergamot.

Liquor: Medium-gold colour, with a clear liquor. Combination of white and green tea aromas, with soft notes of lemon and bergamot.

Flavour: A delicate, naturally sweet tea with light lemon and bergamot notes. Very smooth and very satisfying,

Nothing is more nice than waking up on a single day weekend with something to make it feel somewhat worth it. This cup had that crisp citrus scent and zing that a slice of lemon usually brings to a hot cup of tea. Now i don’t know how they were able to mix the gentle subtleness of white tea with the gentle tones of green tie, while achieving the nuances of an Earl Grey. Granted its not the Earl Grey that you normally think of, but this gets the merit for the technicalities and the flavors that pronounce themselves from beginning to end. The second steep was much more mellow on the flavors of the tea which can be expected from a green-white blend, but the citrus notes of the lemon and bergamot hold true. Good cup to wake you up and make just say, “Ahhhh” :)

I’m glad you had this tea to help. Sorry to hear you don’t have a 72

Its ok, one of the banes i guess of preparing for a deployment. As long as i can continue to enjoy a nice cup of tea every day, it’ll all be worth it:)

Starting to figure this tea out.. I don’t steep too long to keep it from becoming TOO earl grey-y, add a splash of milk and WOW. It is really good. Gave it to company recently and everyone was blown away and planning to head to David’s asap. A very good intro tea as it isn’t too crazy. Just a great twist of a classic. Yum I am making more tonight!

A bit surprised with this choice, as I got this for a friend who loves Earl Grey, yet told me the other day he’s got enough now to last him a few months. (Really? I just gave you a small pouch, dude. Drink ’er up!)

Quick review because I need to go out shortly to go bowling in my Renaissance witch costume, given to me by a stranger via RedditGifts. It’s beautiful!

Bold Earl grey smell dry, with bergamot at the top. Steeped it smells strongly of tea (almost like a grassy green), with just a touch of bergamot. It’s a nice sip, smooth, yet strongly flavored. Not my favorite, yet lovely nonetheless.

If you’ve read any of my other tea reviews, you know that I am a bit of an Earl Grey aficionado. So, I tend to steer clear of Earl Grey variations… until now.

The premise intrigued me, since it’s not uncommon for people to sometimes add a squeeze of lemon to their Earl Grey. The lemon here reminds me strongly of Lime Gelato… except substitute lemon for lime and add a dash of bergamot, not that the bergamot is particularly strong. It’s an interesting variation on a well-known tea, but it should be called Lemon Gelato instead, with the yogurt adding a creamy gelato-ness to the lemon + bergamot.

I took steep.it‘s advice and steeped it at 85°C for only a minute, and it turned out lemony with a hint of cream. No bitterness. Managed to get two steeps out of the leaves as well. Quite a nice flavoured white/green tea, not sure if I’ll restock once my 10g are gone… might have to let it grow on me a bit.

I bought 50g of The Earl of Lemon and I quite enjoy it. Glad I decided to try it as I’m not a huge fan of white tea.

Faith

Now that I’ve had it a couple more times, it’s definitely grown on me. Might have to stock up after all!

1.5 tsp for 300mL water @90C, steeped 4 minutes,

Okay, I can see I used water that was too hot. There’s green tea in here, diva-tastic green tea that’s gone all bitter and harsh. So I need to give this another go … but what a hard sell that will be, because this tea smells and tastes like an artificially-flavoured lemon candy that got tainted with curdled milk.

This smells like the most amazingly creamy lemon infused Earl Grey I’ve been looking forward to trying this since I’ve discovered DT’s many amazing re-imaginations of the classic Earl Grey profile.

As for taste it’s superbly creamy and the lemon is perfectly light and refreshing.

I love this it’s a wonderful reinvention of an Earl Grey..creamy and lemon-infused it’s delicious and perfectly composed.

My big box of DavidsTea came today. This is absolutely lovely.

The aroma in the bag is fabulous. Very lemony with light bergamot notes. It steeps up clean and bright with a hint of creaminess and retains the lovely light lemony smell. I added a touch of honey for sweetness.

I typically like my Earl Greys resplendent with bergamot. It’s barely noticeable in this one, and that is just fine. I will buy this again and again.
