Of the two Churchill’s Earl Greys I have tried today, I have to say that I prefer the 2nd to the Creamy.
There’s something dirty tasting about this tea. It’s more than earthy; it tastes like soil a bit. The base is nice with that slight punch of black bitterness and astringency, but it’s not too much. There’s also a nice tangyness going up the middle of the tongue.
I’m not getting much of a floral overtone, but it’s there. There’s a kind of hint of flowery vanilla, which I guess is supposed to be the creamy part.
It’s complex and pleasant, but really not the flavor for me.
