From Georgia Tea Company

Earl Grey Cream tea is a blend of bergamot oil and vanilla. We also add a touch of coconut, just for that special nutty, sweetness!

Traditionally the term “Earl Grey” was applied only to black tea; however, today the term is used for other teas that contain oil of bergamot, or a bergamot flavour.

The Earl Grey blend is named after the 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in the 1830s and author of the Reform Bill of 1832, who reputedly received a gift, probably a diplomatic perquisite, of tea flavoured with bergamot oil, taken from bergamot, a citrus fruit typical of Southeast Asia and grown commercially in Italy.

This tea was my moment of zen in my craptacular day. I think that I look at is as more of a desert tea than an Earl Grey.

I have enough of my sample left for one more JOEmo thermos-full. This gives me stress.

Will this tea be available to order soon? I can has yummy tea?

I added it to the web site…just for you! Heh.

Rabs

Eeeeeeee!!!!! ::’splodes::

Thank you so very much! Hopefully today I’ll find out how much my car repair is gonna cost which will affect the qty of tea that I get for this first order. Earl Grey Cream shall be purchased no matter what. Thank you!!!!!

Rabs

I was actually gonna PM you later today to see if there was any way I could get my little hands on some of this — you rock! :D

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

yay! Car trouble? That’s no good, what’s wrong with your car?

Rabs

They think that it’s the computer. Effin’ car computers. I had to total my last car because the computer shorted out. I spent a chunk of money at one place to find out today that they’re not sure what’s wrong so it needs to be towed to the dealership. ::facepalm::

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

You can get a car computer for about $30 in a junk yard or pullapart place for your same make and model and just replace it, why all the trouble i wonder? Seems like a crappy mechanic. What kind of car is it?

Rabs

It’s a Toyota Matrix (one of the few that weren’t recalled). I had gone with Toyota because before the massive recall they were considered one of the most dependable car manufacturers. And since I had such a nightmare with Volkswagon (utter, horribly mind-blowing nightmare) I wanted something that would last for years and years. I miss my first car (a Honda) that was fine for over a decade — never broke down once while I owned it.

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

Yeah, that’s pretty much right. VW’s have a lot of mechanical problems. My brother has owned three and all three broke down on him all the time. I have a honda accord and it has 250,000 miles on it and has never had a major mechanical problem. Toyota’s use to be great about as reliable as a honda, but obviously there reliability has come down quite a bit.

I wish you luck on the car, hopefully it won’t be too much.

Rabs

And VWs are crazy-expensive to have any work done ($80 charge for each thing that they look at) and when my VW died the dealership refused to look at it since it was over a decade old (we’re talking by a month). That’s what I call standing by your product :P

I’m praying that it’s covered under warranty. ::crosses fingers, toes, and eyes::

And thanks for the well wishes and the sweet discount!

Daniel Mann - Georgia Tea Co.

Heh, that’s horrible service! I’m sure it will work out well. If it’s the computer, certainly it should be covered under the warranty.

__Morgana__

Ugh, sorry for the car troubles, Rabs!

Rabs

Thank you! Fortunately my folks are able to help me out (and I get to drive my dad’s “midlife crisis car” which is a lot of fun).

I actually have a lot of Earl Grey Cream in my cupboard right now, and I’ve also already found one I really like and am not really looking for a replacement. Nevertheless I ordered a sample of this one from GTC because I’m always interested in Earl Grey Creams, and because it had a rave review on here (though it’s possible the blend has changed once or more). It is also supposed to have a hint of coconut, which I thought would be an interesting addition to an EGC.

One thing I noticed when I was portioning the tea out was that the leaf was more intact and nicer looking than I expected. There were some fairly large leaves in there! When I first took a sip while it was still very hot, I was very pleasantly surprised. I expected this one to be a fairly standard Earl Grey Cream without much in the way of interest in the black tea base. But there was actually a kind of nice, caramelly, tasty black there! Unfortunately as it cooled it became fairly bitter, so perhaps this one needs an even lower steep time. Beyond the bitterness, the tea had a nice bright bergamot flavor and a lovely rich almost caramelly creaminess (no doubt helping to bring out those flavors in the tea base). There was no distinct coconut to speak of, but that’s not the point of it here… it’s suppose to just boost the other flavors. If I can get the bitterness to go away this could really jump in ratings.

Another morning cup of tea from the Traveling Tea Box! I have been so productive this week and I think it’s because I’ve been drinking so much tea. I’m usually pretty sensitive to caffeine, but there have been so many fun teas to try that I’ve not really noticed it. Tomorrow we go to the beach so sadly, today is my last day with the box. I will forever be a fan of traveling tea boxes after this first experience with one being amazing!

This Earl Grey Cream blend includes coconut in it, which sounds delicious! The dry leaves smell mostly of sweet vanilla, with a little bergamot. The tea itself has a soft bergamot aroma with a hint of creamy vanilla and coconut. The flavor is a little surprising – it’s sharply malty with an unexpected tart citrus flavor. There’s a very sweet vanilla finish with a nutty vanilla aftertaste. I wish the coconut stood out a little more, since all I am really getting is just a little nuttiness mixed in with the vanilla. This tea is nice, but nothing special in my opinion. It is also pretty sweet on it’s own, but adding in milk and sugar tones down the tartness of the citrus.

-Dry blend has large black tea leaves and twigs.
-Dry leaves smell sweetly of vanilla and deep bergamot. Tea liquor aroma is of soft bergamot with a hint of creamy vanilla and coconut.
-Tea liquor is a clear very dark brown color.
-Sharp malty and tart citrus flavor with a sweet vanilla finish. Nutty vanilla aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. A very sweet Earl Grey with vanilla. Coconut flavor doesn’t stand out. Strange, slightly artificially sweet taste.

Putting the teabox together was worth that effort then. :D I just hope it keeps not-getting-lost-in-the-mail like it has been! I’m crossing my fingers!

Another tea from the Traveling Tea Box! Of course I had to try this one, it’s an Earl Grey Cream and I am on a quest to catch ’em all. Or, well, try ’em all.

This one sounded interesting since there is coconut oil added, I think the idea of a tropical EGC is really interesting. Sadly, that’s not at all what this is: there’s no coconut at all! I wonder if there’s just not enough of it or if the flavor has waned since it was first bagged up. I agree with Tea Sipper’s note that the packaging seems less than ideal, just light paper to keep it from the elements!

I have tried so many EGCs, and many of them are quite spectacular. But I guess a lot of the middle of the road ones blend together, and this is one of them. The bergamot and vanilla aren’t as well balanced as I would like. It’s a bit creamy but nothing in it really screams “I’m an ear grey cream!” Don’t get me wrong it’s a nice blend, but I think at this point I am so spoiled by the better EGC blends I’ve tried. However, this does make me really want to mix a coconut tea and EGC together and see what happens!

Actually I think just Earl Grey and Coconut would taste great. Maybe with a little bit of lime for a twist?

sipdown! another sample from terri. When i brewed this one up, i didn’t realise it had coconut in it. I’m not so much a fan of coconut, with a few exceptions. the result for me? a tea that really doesn’t taste like any other earl grey creams that i’ve tried (keep in mind they’re not my favourite blend of tea) and an overall not so pleasant experience. It’s not quite a “let me spit this out please” but i, who is not an earl grey lover, would rather drink any of the others i’ve tried previously than drink this one again. Plus the oily film makes me not love it anymore.

Into the last dozen TTB teas I haven’t had, woooo. The only problem with this is I’m basically just trying each one and sending them back on their way because nothing has been OMG MUST KEEP when I have so many teas….way too many….someone make me stop.

So I thought I’d get vanilla and cream from this especially given an addition of coconut, but eh it’s really light. I actually kind of get more a nuttiness than a creaminess from the coconut. I’m guessing this is because I only did a 3 min steep? I also let it get way too cool…I need to set a second timer for when tea is at my optimal drinking temperature. Jeez.

May try this one again, not sure yet.

Tea #44 from HHTTB2

A rather subdued EG flavor. I was expecting more punchiness from the bergamot. The cream part was played well, a nutty vanilla flavor that was both rich and smooth. Thankfully, I didn’t get much flavor in the way of coconut. I feel that would have been out of place here. I do think that’s where the nutty depth came from in the vanilla, though. Not an exceptional tea, but not bad either. Definitely a middle of the road kind of EGC.

It’s been a while since I have tried a ‘new-to-me-Georgia Tea Co Tea’.
I’m trying to get thru this box so I can get it out in a few days! I HOPE I HOPE.

Oh yes! It’s from the “Here’s Hoping” Traveling Box!

Even tho I started my day with a Green Smoothie I followed it up with my tea habit!

This is a gentle EG and a little bit lighter on the cream to the EG but it follows-thru well! At least it’s not overly ‘creamy’ – I had an EG once that was a creamy EG and it was awful! TOO Creamy! Not this, tho! This has a nice Creaminess to it – it’s Earl Grey but with just a little bit more creaminess than the EG-ness! A nice combo!

Tea #18 from the ‘Here’s Hoping’ teabox.

This is a nice EG cream. Lots of bergamot flavor, and the vanilla gives the tea a smooth, creamy quality. The base tea is a little weak for my taste. I sipped this while folding laundry, and when I reached the bottom of my cup I thought that it was a nice cup and I would resteep the leaves later. So, nothing that made me stop and really take notice, but a nice cup nonetheless. If only I could find the bottom of my laundry basket as quickly as I find the bottom of my tea cup!

thanks again, Dinosara, for a great trade! I think I drink Earl Grey Cremes on a twice a month schedule or something, so this is a welcome addition to my Earl Grey Creme collection! But I saw the way the packaging was: it looks like a paper bag! And it doesn’t have a zip! I just feel like teas are going to age faster in this sort of package. But the taste is pretty good. I steeped for three or four minutues. I don’t think the flavor is as strong as it should be. But there is that lovely flavor I’ve gotten to love in the earl grey creme. (Oh who am I kidding with the “gotten to”? I loved it the first sip I tried.) It was interesting when I saw a big vanilla chunk fall into the infuser! The black tea seems to have a stronger flavor that might be overshadowing the bergamot and creme. I agree with Dinosara: no coconut here!I like this, but it isn’t my favorite Earl Grey Creme. But Earl Grey Creme is one of my favorite discoveries this year!
