drank Earl Grey Cream by Sands Of Thyme
4847 tasting notes

The lemon in this is interesting – but I don’t know if that’s a good interesting or a bad interesting just yet. The bergamot seems almost hidden behind the lemon notes of this, and it becomes more of a lemon-y custard (lemon curd) kind of taste with hints of bergamot rather than the Earl Grey Cream teas that I’m accustomed to.

The Assam in this imparts a bitterness. I only steeped for three minutes and I’m getting Assam bitterness. I don’t think that this is an Earl Grey Cream I’d buy again.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
