Since the Lupicia Earl Grey is gone, I pulled this out of the depths of the cabinet. It’s a comforting way to start a too cold day. Not as much bergamot as some Earl Greys, but the creaminess and the vanilla make up for it.

Tea #27 from Traveling Tea Box C

I’m down to the last five teas in the box (at least of those I’m going to try anyway)!

This is an okay Earl Grey. I used a typical (for Earl Grey) perfect teaspoon for 6 ounces, and found it kind of bland when compared to other EG’s I’ve tried. There’s a nice bit of cream after the main sip, but lacking in the sip itself. The Bergamot is where this falls into meh. It’s not bright citrus and ever so lightly florals, but kind of flat on both respects.

It’s not a bad cup, but not one I’ll be seeking out again.

Thanks ToiToi for sending me this sample!

Smells pretty good. Not nearly as strong as an earl grey so hopefully this one will sit well. Just steeping.

It was my birthday a few days ago and today my friend gave me my gifts – one of which was a Buddha board! So awesome (I even did a blog post on it!). I’ve been playing with it all night. I can see many study distractions in the future with this on my desk. Oh my.

I’m enjoying it more than pure earl grey for sure. But still not thinking it’s what I’m looking for in an earl grey. But I’m also not sure what exactly it is I’m looking for. Perhaps I’m just destined to try every earl grey out there.

I’ve been wanting to revisit this one for a while now, but I’ve been too distracted by the New and Shiny. :P

Even after all the new teas I’ve tried lately, this is still one of my favorites. :) I love how smooth and creamy this tea is, and I like the vanilla in it, but nothing overpowers the bergamot. Yum! :)

New and shiny is SUCH a danger with me and tea. Oh, to not be so easily distracted…

the quiet life

Hahaha, I knowww! And I keep seeing new tea I want to try. Hopefully I’ll be able to resist, at least for a little while longer. :P Maybe someone should just confiscate my internet…

~lauren.

And the teas that they tempt you with on the Steepster Select! Don’t you always want to order it? I do and have to remind myself that I have tea tins in the cupboard that still needs opening ….!

the quiet life

Omg, I know. I want all of the Select things! Especially when they’re samplers. But samplers tend to be the most evil, because then they make me want to buy the full sizes. And I have no room for more tea! lol

~lauren.

TOTAL AGREEMENT!

Thanks to IHeartTeas for sending this as part of the fire sale, I got to try a ‘battle of the Earl Grey Cremes’ after getting three Earl Grey Cremes in the same week. I thought I wouldn’t like Earl Grey at all, since the bergamot doesn’t sound very good to me at all. But the creme makes it amazing! HOWEVER, this Earl Grey Creme loses to the other two (Element & SpecialTeas). The flavor on this one just isn’t as strong with either the black tea, bergamot or creme. And it also leaves my mouth a bit dry. If I had tried this one before the other Earl Grey Cremes, I would have loved this one more than I do, but the other two are perfect.

This one tastes really artificial to me.

I’ve never been too familiar with Earl Grey teas, I’ve only had a few, the most recent one was the sample I got from The Jade Teapot.

This one is definitely different, not nearly as floral smelling… This one actually almost reminds me of a perfume though… The vanilla is definitely a nice touch to it..

This one goes down really smooth… I love the creamy vanilla taste to this. I think I just need to spend more time with this tea and Earl Greys in general… It is a great morning tea…

I’m just gonna continue my day watching the April Fools’ marathon of the Three Stooges… I love these guys…

This tea had to grow on me. At first, I didn’t like it so much. I found myself just wanting a plain Earl Grey. But the more I drank it, the more I liked it. I especially like mixing it in with other black and oolong teas I have.

It’s good. I may not buy it again soon, but it’s definitely a possibility in the future.

This tea was brought over by a friend to try out. She enjoys it quite a lot, so I had to give it a shot!

The aroma of the dry leaf is a little overpowering, but not in a wholly unpleasant sort of way. I find that using the recommended amount of leaves and steeping time with Teavana teas leads to a very dull flavor, so I used more tea than they suggest and steeped a little longer as well. This did seem to prove me right once more and I could tell the full flavor of the tea was working its way into the liquor.

The bergamot was a little over-strong for my taste, but I am not a particular fan of bergamot, so this is very subjective. There are those who love the bergamot flavor, so this would be more up their alley. I did enjoy the creme undertones, however. It was nicely noted on the tin that there was no dairy involved in the creme (important for vegans and those who are lactose intolerant).

After trying a few sips plain, I added a small amount of sweetener and a little milk to bring out the creme flavor more fully.

Overall, I did enjoy this sweet, creamy Earl Grey. The sweetness of the bergamot and the blue cornflowers almost were too much for me, but they balanced with the creme and small amount of milk I added after the first.

I probably wouldn’t buy this for myself, but if someone gifted it to me, I would likely drink it somewhat regularly on a weekend morning.

I can’t seem to get into bergamot or earl grey teas, my boyfriend loves it though

Dinah Saur

Most Earl Grey teas just have too much of the bergamot flavor, in my opinion. I do like it when it’s very mild, however. Like when the flavor is in the background only and does not take over the tea itself. :)

ScottTeaMan I like EG teas and Bergamot, but not if it overpowers the tea.

I’ve been bugging my swap partners for more EGCs to try and I got a sample of this from scribbles, thanks so much!

I don’t normally talk about the smell of the dry leaves, but in this case I feel that I need to. I almost didn’t make a cup of this because the smell was so off-putting and chemical smelling, it made my nose burn a little. I was all set to have yet another tea from Teavana that I hated, but this one was a bit of a surprise because I don’t mind it, I just don’t think it would be something I would buy myself.

It isn’t the best EGC, in fact, it hardly resembles one at all because it is so strong and lacks the creamy feel that the others I have tried have had. The bergamot comes through first and leaves an after taste that I don’t like. The vanilla hardly comes across at all and I only get a little bit of it in the end. This one left me a little disappointed, but it was perfectly drinkable.

I found this one really strong scented as well. I almost got put off ever trying another EGC because of it.

Short Sorceress

I could see how you would get put off trying another EGC because of it. If I had started with it I might have felt the same way. Culinary Teas has a great EGC that the Bergamot isn’t nearly as strong in and it’s very creamy. I think you would like it.

As much as I enjoy Earl Grey, I haven’t had very many Earl Greys or variations. I decided to have this as my “morning” tea (more like lunch, but sleeping in it makes it morning for me!) While hot, it seemed bitter, and I didn’t think I would like it much. However, as it cools, I am enjoying it more and more. The smooth creaminess is able to come out more with the lower temperature. This seems like it could be interesting iced.
