Oh, so sad. I am looking for a replacement for the Earl Grey de la Creme from SpecialTeas. And I was hoping this might be it. Unfortunately, it isn’t.

I got this from the wonderful free sample offer from Tea Licious (Thank you so much!) and tried it today at work. Too much bergamot for me. It triggered my “you’re drinking perfume” taste bud. I couldn’t finish the cup.

Now, it’s possible that I used too much leaf, and I will try making it again, to see if I messed it up. And if so, I’ll definitely change the rating. But really, this tea just wasn’t for me.

I have been searching the world over for a replacement for this tea as well. I found this post via an internet search and am wondering if you have managed to find something as good yet? I’m starting to despair. This is THE TEA in our house. . . Please let me know – any help you can offer to further my quest would be very much appreciated!

Distinctly Teas had a good one, but I have no idea how easy they are to order from. Good luck. I’m still searching myself.

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
