Taken with milk.
It had been a while since I had this one, so I pulled the tin and took a long, deep inhale of the dry leaf. Mmm! It smelled so creamy and good. Yup; it was awesome: strong notes of creamy vanilla and a divine bergamot flavour. It was like a London Fog. Just… Pretty perfect. I could honestly go for a second cup.
To echo Marzipan in one of her earlier tasting notes today: it’s nice returning to old friends.
Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Vanilla
I seriously don’t even understand why I have no note for this. I’m 100% positive I drank it… a couple years ago, for the first time. Anyways, I enjoyed this, and it was nice and creamy, less heavy on the bergamot that some other EG creams. Sadly though, a company that is no longer around, I believe.
I really like this Cream Earl Grey. The cream flavor is very assertive, but it subsides pretty quickly allowing for the flavors of the bergamot to be explored in the deeper layers of this tea. The flavor is smooth, far less sharp than a typical Earl Grey usually is, and has a very indulgent, decadent taste to it. Very comforting.
I just made a small pot of the cream Earl Gray and it was excellent. I have tended to shy away from Earl Gray because there are quite a few that I have found heavy handed with the bergamot, but this tea was flavorful, a touch creamy, well balanced and subtle. My 93 year old mom and I both enjoyed it together.
Picked this tea up yesterday at Special-Teas Etc in Volant, PA. Great little store. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They also had a quite an extensive selection of their own blends, Rishi, and Octavia. This particular Ti Kuan Yin is very light and floral.
