Della Terra included this one as a freebie with my order. Thanks! I LOVE Earl Grey Creme. The creme & the bergamot is a perfect pairing with a black tea. This one is pretty good. Equal parts creme and bergamot, but I didn’t love the flavor of the black tea itself (though it never was astringent.) The flavors don’t meld together as well as my two favorites (Element & SpecialTeas which no longer exist) but that bar is pretty high. It IS better than the Teavana EG creme though!

ETA: I’m kicking myself because I just realized I forgot one of my favorite Creme Earl Greys from one of my favorite new tea companies, and this one is still in business! It’s The Tea Merchant’s French Earl Grey! (theteamerchant.net)

I appreciate this comparative review. It’s too bad your favourites aren’t around anymore, but hopefully you’ll find a blend, soon, that rivals theirs (or surpasses them, even).

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
