A fairly nice tasting earl grey with a touch of vanilla flavour that leaves a lingering aftertaste. The aroma of the tea is very strong and yields a deep red colour after steeping. Steeped 3 times.

Tea of the afternoon. And why, when it’s still 28 degrees out? I think it’s a comfort thing, and I need comforting when I look at the amount of work that’s just come my way thanks to two skiving colleagues. One is notorious for being “sick” on nice days, the other is just workshy and had to go home because “her leg hurts”. Obviously it’ll hurt a whole lot less in front of the TV, but since when did a sore leg stop anyone from typing? Never in the history of the world, that’s when. That, in a nutshell, it how I ended up doing to work of three people, feasibly for the rest of the week. I decided I needed caffeine.
I love Earl Grey Cream blends. I think I’ve adored every single one I’ve ever tried, as far as I can remember. This one’s no exception. I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water. I added a splash of milk. To taste, it’s pretty wonderful. The main flavour is a thick creaminess, very sweet and vanilla-y. The bergamot is very subtle, really just an underlying flavour, which works for me because I’m not a huge bergamot fan. If you like really creamy Earl Grey blends, you should definitely take a look at this one. I could happily drink it all day, and I probably will if the current conditions prevail.
This vanilla-scented, cornflower-decorated Earl Grey from Tealux, Earl Grey Cream “Moonlight”, tastes very good. The black tea base is better than I’ve come to expect from Earl Grey blends, which often attempt to compensate for lower grade tea with a hefty dose of bergamot. I know that the black tea base is better than usual, because the liquor is a dark reddish brown, and most importantly of all: it tastes excellent without any cream!
I imbibed two glasses of this fine Earl Grey this afternoon—why two? Because the first one was so good, that I felt compelled to brew up another! I did end up drinking most of it with light cream, and I noticed that the first batch was a bit better—I had steeped it a couple of minutes longer. Good to know that this tea tastes even better when officially oversteeped!
One of these days I’m going to have to do a steep-off between this delicious blend and my all-time-favorite vanilla-scented Earl Grey, Tazo Earl Grey Blanc. I might wait a while, however, because I already polished of a 2 ounce envelope of the Tazo, and I feel that I should wait before diving into the second one, which is still hermetically sealed. At least I should give some more attention to the other open Earl Greys in my cupboard first!
I do recommend this blend to anyone who likes both Earl Grey and vanilla and is looking for a quality black tea base so that the tea experience is not only about the flavors.
