From Distinctly Tea

Flavored with the same oil of bergamot as our classic Earl Grey but with a hint of vanilla and cream. A smooth and aromatic blend of Ceylon teas with a wonderful creamy-fruity flavor that appeals to a wide range of tastes. Even if you are not an Earl Grey fan, we recommend you try this tea.

I think that one of the best things that ever happened to Earl Grey tea was meeting the vanilla bean. It must have been movie magic. I can see it now…

INT: A Parisian Salon.

Various teas and flavorings lounge about, chatting, discussing worldly matters and current gossip. VANILLA sits in the corner, alone, draped across a chaise longue. She is long, lean and highly sweetly scented.

The camera pans to the door where EARL GREY, a dark, swarthy yet citrus scented tea enters. He scans the room until his eyes fall on VANILLA. He beelines to her, drops to one knee, grabs her hand, and looks deeply into her eyes while kissing her hand.

EARL GREY (huskily): ‘Allo. I find myself inexplicibly drawn to you. I feel we could make amazing brews together.

VANILLA: (swoons)

Music swells.

….and scene. Only problem is that just like movie magic, there are frequent copycats that just don’t have the verve and je ne sais qua of the original. I’ve had varied luck with the different Earl Grey de la Cremes out there on the market.

Luckily, Distinctly Tea has got a pretty good version of this classic couple. The black tea base of ceylon and assam is sturdy and the flavoring agents blend beautifuly. The vanilla is creamy, and the bergamot avoids the trap of tasting like perfume. Highly scented, highly flavorful. Lovely tea. I reccomend it.

Yum.

I’m imaging Earl Grey to be played by Colin Firth… ;)

This was the last of a small sample that I had. Thankfully, I just got some of this from a different company. It will be interesting to see how the two match up to one another.

As Picard would order: “Earl Grey (de la creme) HOT.”
Finially, an Earl Grey that I like!
This one is mild in bergamot but BIG in creaminess. Love the scent of vanilla wafting from my cup:)
