I tried making this three times before both the sample and my patience had been exhausted. This peeps instead of pops, and each time I was left craving something richer and more powerful. Adding milk was the only way to salvage some enjoyment from it, but even then it just wasn’t for me.

Got a sample of this tea due to an order mishap, but I do have to commend the Persimmon Tree for promptly correcting it! Great customer service!

Anyway, I thought I would give this one a try, even though I tend to stay away from earl grey in general. I thought I might like this one, since it has the promise of vanilla in addition to bergamot. I do like earl grey-like teas that have something additional in them (Harney’s Paris for example).

This earl grey has very bright flavor. The bergamot was pretty strong, and very lemon-y in this case. I did get some vanilla, but for me, it wasn’t enough to round out the brightness of the bergamot. Earl grey lovers may like this one though.

I’d have to agree with you on liking Earl Grey with a little something else in it. :)

Well, that is certainly fragrant. The flavour is more mild. Good, but needs vanilla. (I ended up having mine with vanilla almond milk.)

Wow this tea has a very strong fragrance brewing, of vanilla and flowers. I’m not complaining—I prefer my earls on the strong, heavily fragrant side, and able to withstand some milk or raw sugar.

This one’s strong in flavor too! Could definitely be cut with milk and/or sugar. A little bitterness but not much, next time I could steep it for slightly less time if I didn’t want to deal with milk, but it’s fine solo right now really. Sweetness and vanilla, lots of that “extract” and perfume feel. I could be misidentifying but I think I can actually see specks of vanilla bean at the bottom of my cup, and that doesn’t surprise me given the aroma and taste. The citrus comes in at the end, a nice surprise and not too tart but definitely present enough to keep you on your toes.

This is one of those Big Ones as earls go, clobbering you all-around—in vanilla, in bergamot, in everything. For me, that’s not a problem!

1. Does the very strong vanilla overshadow the oil of bergamot flavor? Or, can you equally appreciate both of these key ingredients?
2. Does the vanilla flavor taste in any way artificial?
Thanks

I feel bad rating this so low, but it’s not for me. I’m not generally a big fan of Earl Grey’s to begin with and this one comes across as too perfumey for me.

I’ll add to my sample box or something.

I’m not sure I love this. I can definitely taste the vanilla, but I wish there was more or something. I wouldn’t buy this one but I’m glad to have tried it. I had been wanting to try an earl grey with cream flavor. I’ll keep looking.

Backlog:

As I was brewing this tea, I could tell it was an Earl Grey creme type of tea because I could smell the notes of vanilla as it brewed. And it smelled scrumptious!

A really good Earl Grey Creme. The strong bergamot is softened by the creamy sweet notes of vanilla. The combination of these two flavors create an almost caramel-y sort of flavor that is quite delectable.

A mellow black tea base, but it is still smooth and pleasant and adds a nice background flavor for the bergamot and cream. Mild but not so much that the flavor is lost.

A really enjoyable cuppa.

From the Lewis and Clark TTB.

The dry leaf is rather fragrant. As soon as I open the packet, out goes the aroma. The flavorings in the tea itself are strong – particularly the bergamot – but not at all off-putting. At first I can only taste the bergamot, and then the vanilla comes through, in the aftertaste. Unlike in other Earl Grey’s I’ve had, there is no unwanted super malty interference from the base tea, so I didn’t feel the need to add milk or sugar, which is a big plus.

I lost the note to this when my computer died and the only thing I remember is that this reminded me a lot of The Tea Merchant’s and DAVIDsTEA which are my favorite EGC’s. So I guess this would now go in that category also.

I came across this sample while I was doing a bit of organizing. My tea drawer is a mess and I need to sip down some of my samples and decide which I want to reorder. I decided to cold steep this all afternoon and while it isn’t bad I find that it leaves me feeling a little meh about it. I love EG in any shape or form, but this one just doesn’t have the flavor Im looking for. When I take a sip all I can taste is the vanilla. I need something just a bit more bold.
