This is probably okay to cook with but for the price, you can get a better tea base. This is pretty harsh and to me there is nothing special about it. It’s not undrinkable, it just isn’t a stand-out.

I got it as part of an order to see if I wanted to become a consultant. I think I’ve had enough really great tea over the past couple of years that I can’t bring myself to sell this to other people at the prices Steeped Tea charges. Not when I know that for the same money you can get truly excellent teas.

That’s good to know! My aunt is buying me some tea from there and I was looking at what was required to host a party / be a consultant etc, but I wouldn’t be comfortable with it if the tea wasn’t enjoyable.

I wanted to try the tea before I jumped into selling it and I’m glad I did. I expect many who are not as exposed to tea would like this. Maybe you’ll find something in what your aunt gets you that you like. :) And there is always the possibility that I got a not so good batch.

I will be buying this at a future Steeped Tea Party. I got a sample. It was wonderful!

I’ve been enjoying creaming Earl Grey loose leaf teas for several years now – sampling blends from lots of different tea shops. This Steeped Tea blend is a particularly lovely blend. The iconic bergamot flavour is strong but very well balanced by the creaminess that makes this tea such a memorable go-to for me. In addition to drinking this tea, I have also started experimenting with using it in different recipes. My Earl Grey de la Creme pancakes were a hit at our breakfast table last weekend. My 10 year old liked them even better then the Cherry Pie Rooibos pancakes I made the day before.

I forgot all about this during yesterday’s epic Earl Grey face-off. :) I just have a small bag of it, got it from one of those community fundraising things a couple years back. Anyway, I was in the mood for a tea I could add milk to, and this was near the front of my cupboard (how did I miss it yesterday) so here we are.

It smells really good, like there’s a definite creamy vanilla scent that blends in well with the bergamot. When I first tasted it, I was suprised to find it quite bitter! Like, enough so that I couldn’t really pay attention to the other flavours at all. It tasted like I had oversteeped it, though the package says steep for 3-7min and I went with 4min, so I didn’t think that was particularly excessive. Anyway, I guess it’s a good thing that I was planning to add milk to this anyway! I added more than my usual splash of milk, and that made it entirely drinkable. It still smells a lot better than it tastes, though.

I’ve been super curious about their teas. Guess I can cross this one off the list.

I love Earl Greys, so I was all YAY when I received this as a sample. It’s pretty good, but perhaps a bit too vanilla-tasting for my liking. I like to be able to taste my bergamot, and I’m not really getting any of that here. That said, it’s still quite drinkable as a Monday morning beverage.

Earl Grey de la Créme from Steeped tea is very heavy on the vanilla, giving it a pleasantly sweet flavor (perfect for those of you like me who have a sweet tooth!) There is only a hint of citrusy bergamot that shines through. If I had one complaint about this blend it would be that it really needs a stronger base to balance everything out and tone down the sweetness. Without more of a contrast from the bergamot and base I think this blend is actually too sweet.
