I’ve never been the biggest fan of Earl Grey and the only Cream of Earl Grey I’ve ever had was a sample at DAVIDs, which was the most horribly bitter disgusting tea I’ve ever had the misfortune of trying, so I really questioned the logic of picking up 40g of this, but three different people told me it was amazing, so I decided to give it a go.
First of, I’m not 100% on board with the smell. Would definitely not typically buy based on that alone. Again, leap of faith here.
Well I’m glad I decided to give it a chance, because it really is good! Predominately tastes like lemon tarts—citrus-y, creamy, and vanilla-y—YUM! There’s a floral/herbal note that I can’t quite describe (though if I were to try, I’d probably saw rosemary or lavender (or both?)—definitely not bergamot). It may have been my imagination, but I also got a hint of strawberries near the middle/end of my cup, which seemed odd. All in all, 100% exceeded my expectations.
