Oh my gosh, who would have though THIS could happen? This tea is TOO SWEET for me!
I typically love Cream of Earl Grey teas – I love Earl Grey so much, and adding that punch of sweetness just makes it heavenly for me. I try any Cream of Earl Grey or Lady Grey tea I can get my paws on, and I love them all – bagged or otherwise, I am indifferent, appreciating each one’s subtle differences.
But this is not a sweet punch, it is a sugary take-down! I can’t even believe how sweet this is – I bought it on the pure trust in my love for DAVIDs TEA doing great sweet dessert teas regularly and nailing them, and the fact that I already know I love Earl Grey cream/vanilla teas. But it turns out that this one was not to be!
I personally do not taste much of the Earl Grey in there; somehow it’s just too sweet. Like almost syrupy-sweet. My recommendation would be to check out The Earl’s Garden at David’s Tea and compare the two before you buy – who knows, you may like both, or you may discover you would prefer one above the other. But this one surprised me.
(Edit: Nowadays there’s also The Earl’s Valentine to consider and compare against, at least in the early springtime. Definitely worth comparing them, although I can’t say I’ve found my perfect sweet Earl Grey with DT as of yet.)
