This is one I really love for an afternoon cup. The tea can still be tasted through the creme, but the creme is certainly present.

I’m not a heavily experienced tea drinker, and I find many teas simply too plain for my liking. That said, this is a spectacular beverage! I’ve completely abandoned drinking coffee and exclusively drink this tea throughout my day. I do make it a bit stronger than Teavana suggests, throwing in an extra half-teaspoon for every cup.
It has a beautiful aroma, and the vanilla tempers the bergamot very well. With just a bit of sugar, I’ve found my new favorite hot drink.
In a general way I am not a big fan of Teavanna’s leaves (I won’t buy their plain teas – but they seem to be very good with making flavored teas)… but the flavoring in this tea is done very well and hides the uh whatever it is about their tea leaves that seems to have a tendency to offend my tastebuds. The bergamot is very gentle and the creme flavoring does not taste very artificial. I enjoy this tea a lot… it has a light flavor and a wonderful smell… its not earth shatteringly awesome but I would give it full points for being an everyday kind of tea that is good tasting and relatively reasonably priced. I add only a small spoon of sugar.
I tried the earl grey creme from teany, and was looking for the same tea on the net. I purchased this one from Teavana, but I was disappointed. It lacked that velvety taste that lingers after drinking it.
It’s a dessert tea, but I didn’t get that from it either.
It’s an okey earl grey tea, but not something I’m going to purchase again.
