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.

Tea #10 from the Here’s Hoping TTB

This is a pretty middle of the road EGC, nothing about it really wowed me. I thought that since there is coconut oil in it it would be something just a little bit different, but sadly I can’t taste it at all. I am able to taste a good dose of vanilla and a fair bit of bergamot, but the black base isn’t very appealing.

This wouldn’t be a tea that I decide to reorder for myself, if only because I’ve had far better EGC, but I did enjoy trying it. I’m out to try every EGC available and am happy to knock one more off my list.

This tea won’t be continuing on, I finished off the last little bit.

I think this may be one of those teas where I just got an unusual sampling from the batch, or my tastebuds are going haywire today. Usually my tasting notes fall into line with some/most others, but not this time.

My first smell of the dry tea was an abundance of bergamot. It was so strong, it was almost overwhelmingly floral/medicinal. This will probably lessen over time, as the volatile compounds leave the opened bag. But it was so strong this time, it was almost enough to put me off the tea.

After steeping, a lot of the smell remained, but it was not as overwhelming. I did not pick up any cream, coconut, or anything else much other than the bergamot. It may have been there, but just not able to sneak past the overwhelming bergamot.

Please note that as of this tasting, I have not tried many Earl Grey cremes. I would expect that after tasting some others, my palate would be somewhat better defined, and perhaps better able to pick up on the more subtle notes. The black tea base did seem pretty nice.

Update, after second steeping: This has at least turned out to be a very good Earl Grey, especially if I let it air out a little before steeping :) I still do not pick up on any “Cream” aspects in the second brew, which I was hoping would happen when some of the bergamot gone. But it is still a nice tea.
