From Zen Tea

If you are fan of Earl Grey and hae not tried this, you are in for a treat. Cream Earl Grey has a taste that is smooth with vanilla overtones which stand out above the premium bergamot flavor the signature taste of Earl Grey. Our flavoury Earl Grey mellowed with a delicious creamy taste. An excellent all day tea with a superb finish.

Price: $9 /100g

So I went back to check because I suspected as much: this is my first earl grey in a week and a half. A year ago it was all I would touch! There have been so many other good teas in the meantime that I barely noticed.

This definitely smells creamy both dry and brewed. It’s one of the better tasting EGs I’ve had; the cream taste is there, but it doesn’t overpower the EG base and make it taste like something else entirely like some others do. It’s slightly sweet and very nice as a morning cup! I may have to grab some of this one too.

I don’t like black tea and never tasted any earl grey tea that one was ordered on the December 50% off sales from zen tea with my normal command i still try to find a black tea i would like.

I’m still sick but it way less worse than this morning at least i can talk now. Being in the mood for tea but not the one i’ve been drinking all day long that one was the perfect choice.

I know i should have tasted it with nothing in it first but i always find black too bitter i did put some honey in it before even drinking it not enough to change the taste but enough to cover any bitterness that might come with the first sip.

Unfortunately that was not the tea that will make me like black tea for that matter that was probably my last try black are just to bitter for me flavoured or not i still drink it with a lot of honey a chance for me it was just a sample.

I don’t give that one a note since i’m kinda bias against black tea

This was an impulse buy after seeing the great reviews here, no regrets at all. Zen Tea could very well be a contender among my favorite online tea retailers.

The bergamot is a bit mild, which works well with the creaminess of it. Need to be careful though, as with my second cup I accidentally oversteeped it and it became unpleasantly bitter. But so long as you don’t get sidetracked as easily as I do…! It is an amazing, well balanced tea.

Nice tea. Sort of morning only but good with added sugar.

This tea is currently my favorite. We put half a Mason jar full of 2% milk and shake it like your life depends on it. Put it in the microwave for 45 seconds. I usually do this while the Grey Cream is brewing. A very small amount of sugar and the perfectly concocted microwave foam/hot milk combo makes a perfect cup of tea. My wife puts a little shake of Pumpkin Spice on the foam and after that first drink you will think your in Bath, England in late 1792

I ordered this tea during the Black Friday 2015 sales based on reviews. Then rumour has it that this current batch, the new one that I am assuming I received, is inferior to the original.

Now, I haven’t tried the original EGC from Zen, but what is in my cup right now is pretty fantastic. It is not particularly creamy, perhaps that is the problem. However, it works for me. I have tried DT’s EGC and found it to be a disaster for me.

This vanilla is deep and grounded, with several levels of flavour, none of that false perfumey vanilla flavour or scent. The bergamot is there, also grounded, but with lovely floral and citrus lilts that surprise your sips from time to time. The tea base is a pleasant Ceylon mix, as opposed to the thin tinny nonsense that often finds its way into flavoured teas.

Word is that the original tea will be back in stock in two weeks or so. Can it get better than this?

I haven’t ordered this in a year but it’s too bad to hear that the newer one isn’t quite up to snuff. But glad you still enjoy it. I’m going to take a stab in the dark and say yes, yes it can get better than that.

I am going to have to conjure up an excuse to make another order then. I am really thinking that I got a bag from the original batch though. Who knows.

Ceylon tea taste so bad to me that I want to cry when I have some. I brewed this and my bestfriend and I decided to dump this tea out immediately.

If anyone wants this just let me know :)


Oh no! This is one of my favorites! I definitely don’t like Ceylon either.

I got my Zen tea order this morning and told myself I wasn’t going to open any teas until I sipped something down… even a sample bag. Well, that didn’t work very well. I let myself open this one just to smell it.. and I was sunk.

I bought this one due to it’s glowing reviews and some positive comments about it during the discussion about their sale. I figured it would be easy to swap if it didn’t meet my expectations.

Dry leafed this smells rich and sweet. Steeped, and with my normal touch of raw sugar, I found the vanilla & creaminess everyone speaks of with this one, and quite the bergamotty flavor. I can taste the base, but the bergamot, vanilla, and cream almost take over the cup. The added sugar almost makes this decadent. The second steep is almost the same as the first, I didn’t dare try another, but might next time.

I think if I had the option, I would tone down the bergamot a touch so that the vanilla and cream could dance a little more in this blend. Still very good though.

Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Vanilla


So happy you like this one :-)


(And trying not to open any pouches from a new tea order is a torture I cannot endure!!)


I know Hubby is going to see my box and say something about where am I going to put it. At least I have a plan… if I can stick to it. Luckily I have a couple of teas w/just 1 cup left ;) That will help!

The scent of Earl Greys tend to make me swoon. I can never resist!


carol who.. Have you tried this one?


What is your plan?


I wondered if she’d like a sample. I can send one in my package to you Cheri. :)


Not too into the Earl myself, so I don’t need this one. But thanks!


Ok. I’ve found most people either love it or hate it.

I received this pleasant surprise in the mail yesterday from TeaTiff, who is providing me with a welcome distraction from all my green-tea tastings lately! (Gotta throw in some black teas here and there, because, let’s face it, there’s nothing quite as good as a deep, dark, rich cup of black tea to help one wake up and power through the day!)

I decided I couldn’t resist trying this sample first, because for some reason without intending to I have ended up being sort of on a little Earl Grey kick…I first tried that green EG, then the one by Williamson, and now, this fabulous cup of perfection. I am so spoiled to have enjoyed these really nice Earl Greys over the past two weeks, and this Earl Grey Cream is the icing on the cake, the piece de resistance, the…(okay, I think you get the point, haha) It’s AMAZING!

Oh gosh, the flavor: SO good! It does not have a super strong Ear Grey flavor, but that’s not to say it’s weak. It just tastes as though the bergamot has taken a respectful step to the side to give the cream more of the spotlight on center stage. (This is CREAM Earl Grey, after all) The bergamot is there, it is present, singing out it’s lively citrusy notes in harmony with the star of the show: the lovely cream! Mmmm that vanilla cream flavor is outstanding, belting out its melodiously rich, smooth song just like a famous opera singer! The cream mellows out the citrus and astringent black tea qualities, but is delightfully well-balanced with the other flavors. A nice sweet robust black tea flavor still shines through, so you don’t forget you’re drinking a black tea!

Overall this is deliciously rich and robust, yet sweet and creamy; it has no bitterness or sharp notes. It has a light citrus flavor, calm and soothing, like orange blossoms. Simply superb!

Lovely review Charissa, I share your enthusiasm, this is my favourite earl grey :-) I love that the creamy part is not overly vanilla, just perfectly balanced.


Thanks, TeaFairy! Yes, it’s hard to contain the enthusiasm on this one…it’s just so good. :-)


This is my go to tea these days. If I am not feeling excited about anything tea wise, or just have had too many disappointing cups, this one always brings me back to that zen tea place.

I think you should be a description writer for tea companies. I think you could sell me about any cup with how you world things. Love it!


Thank you so much for sharing a sample of this with me, TeaTiff! I am completely hooked. And I’m glad you enjoy my reviews, though I don’t think they’re nearly as good as some of the things other people have written here. But I’m glad my English major is coming to good use! haha
