One of my favourites. What can I say, it’s a smooth, vanilla/cream-soda flavoured Earl Grey. I think the name does it justice enough.

“Not so sweet that I couldn’t taste the Earl Grey, and not so strong that either flavour was cancelled out. Still though, it was really quite sweet. I might try it without milk next time :)” Read full tasting note
This tea is a melange of of high grown leaf from Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva, making it a quintessentially Sri Lankan tea blend. These teas are known for possessing a delicate floral bouquet with a pleasing astringency, bright coppery color and incredible freshness. Their quality is respected worldwide.Now, what about the inclusion of fresh cream to create a new knockout addition to the world of Earl Grey? That, gentle reader, is quintessentially The Metropolitan Tea Company. And, in the tradition of The Metropolitan Tea Company, this tea is fantastic – creamy, sweet and exotic. We personally have not tasted anything quite like it anywhere else on the market and we have no problem recommending it highly!

This is a great tea, though when you have a tea as “quintessentially British as you can get” as the base for this tea, you expect it. The description is quite humorous, as we find out that this tea is also quintessentially Italian, Sri Lankan, and ultimately Metropolitan.
There isn’t an actual ingredient list on the bag, so I can’t tell you what is in this blend. The description on the bag explains that they add fresh cream to the tea, though I don’t know if I’m supposed to take that literally or figuratively. Most cream earl grey blends are made with vanilla, and this tea has a strong aroma of vanilla and bergamot. It rebrews well, and the vanilla isn’t too overpowering or artificial. Still, if you want to try the tea and worry about what goes into your tea, you might consider the fact that it’s ingredient list is nonexistent as far as I can tell.
So, I need to figure out how to multi-task, because I only managed to write half of my thoughts before moving my attention elsewhere. This tea is better enjoyed when you’re not trying to do too many things at once.
