drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana
7 tasting notes

Having read terrible things about Teavana and their safety/quality control practices (particularly regarding carcinogenic pesticides in their tea leaves: read more here http://foodbabe.com/2013/08/21/do-you-know-whats-really-in-your-tea/), I’m not happy that this tea is made by Teavana.

That said, I do think this is a tasty Earl Grey…although I wish I the “creme” were stronger in it, and because it isn’t, I still prefer Republic of Tea’s “Earl Greyer”, which is more fragrant and so far I find it less bitter than Teavana’s EG Creme.

I don’t want to be too quick to judge this tea…I suspect I have yet to find the ideal preparation for it. I think when I get it tweaked just right, it will be even better.
