drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana
9 tasting notes

I sincerely enjoyed my first exploration into writing a tasting note; however, I do not have the time to write such long tasting notes regularly. I also contend that anyone reading my tasting notes may prefer that I keep it a bit more succinct… so here it goes.

This has been one of my go-to teas of late. I tend to prefer black tea in the mornings and Earl Grey is the tea that got me back on my tea kick after a several year hiatus. This was my first voyage into the flavor of Earl Grey Creme.

This is a loose leaf tea. The dry leaf is dark and intermingled with yellow petals (Marigold, apparently) which gives this tea an inviting character. The smell of the dry leaves is a rather strong floral perfume of bergamot. I LOVE Bergamot. I like the more perfumey as well as the more citrusy flavors.

The color of the steeped tea again reminds me of stained cherry wood. The aroma of the steeped tea is much more heavy on the vanilla and the bergamot gets a bit lost for me. The tea is very smooth and has an almost creamy mouth feel. I can tell this is an Earl, but the bergamot is a bit mild for my tastes. I am enjoying the 2 oz I purchased immensely. This is a great breakfast tea and gives me a pleasant start to my day. I plan on sipping on this during morning rounds today.

Preparation included 1 packet of Truvia, my sweetener of choice. I have also enjoyed this tea with a splash of cream/milk; however, the flavor gets a bit lost so I prefer this tea alone.

I am a veterinary student and an animal lover. I enjoy sipping hot tea with my wonderful husband and my cat. I typically choose new teas based on tasting notes I read here. I am happily joining the Steepster community and hope to use my account to keep tasting notes for myself as I try more and more delicious tea.
