Beautiful Earl Grey … sweet and very smooth

This is a great breakfast tea for those who prefer something a little less strong than perhaps and Irish Breakfast or a bolder black tea, in fact it is usually my go to breakfast tea. Delicious Earl Grey with the vanilla notes from the creme which soften the taste. It smells divine! So floral and sweet but soft. It is one of my personal favorites and has become a staple tea in my pantry. I always make it for guests when they come over too since its a tasty tea with plenty of flavor but not over the top bold.
I originally had my first taste of this tea at a brunch with my mother. Ever since then I was on a mission to find it again. Finally found it and although I have nothing against Teavana in the slightest, I know a lot of people aren’t thrilled with it however this is one tea that I think is worth every penny. Just recently repurchased it because my girlfriend drinks it so much. It has become her favorite. I normally prepare it with 1/2 TBS of sugar and milk.
You have to be really careful not to overbrew this tea. Most blacks I steep for 3-5 minutes. I wouldn’t go over 2.5 for this one. It gets pretty bitter.
When you brew it properly, though, it’s a pretty nice earl grey. I still feel like there’s a little something off about it, though. Maybe I’m just not a fan of the added vanilla.
This is my current favorite tea, and the first one I’ve been really excited about in a while. This is a very fragrant tea, the warm vanilla notes are just yummy. This tea actually tastes “creamy” to me and has been absolutely perfect on these cold winter mornings.
My only complaint would be that it becomes “stale” very quickly. The “creme” is actually some kind of dried cream/milk that’s added to the tea and after a week, two at the most, that creaminess fades away. The vanilla notes stay around and it’s is still a good tea, but it’s not nearly as good as it is when it’s very fresh.
Oh my word, do I love this tea.
I’m a fan of EGs, and this is the smoothest, most lovely EG experience I’ve had to date. The very slight vanilla notes give it a creamy feel, and the bergamot is gorgeously aromatic. I am in love.
I steep for about 2.5 mins, with approx 10 oz of water to a tsp of tea. Add in a little rock sugar to my tea maker, throw in a little cream, and this is seriously the most perfect cup of tea I’ve had in a long, long time.
