The other new tea I picked up yesterday. Mom and I were smelling Earl Greys as my aunt is a fan of them so we were looking for a gift for her, moment got Lord Grey and I got this one. Both have bergamot and vanilla but this one is more creamy than the other. I’m going to let my mom have a few cups in case that is the one to get my aunt (the Lord Grey is currently for her).

This tea smells soooo creamy. Now, I really don’t need another EGC, I’ve found my favorite at Zen Tea Life already and Heavenly Cream by Sloane is a close second. Oh and I can’t forget the one by davidstea, strong, but I enjoy it. But this one smelled too good to pass up lol (I might go back and get Lord’s Grey as well, it also smelled wonderful, but more bergamotty).

So I steeped about a tsp for 2 mins. The steeped tea retains that wonderful creamy smell and adds in a bit more bergamot. The first few sips were almost too much bergamot, bordering on perfume which I don’t like in EG trash, but the aftertaste is a lovely vanilla cream. As I continue to sip and the cup cools, the vanilla takes over and the perfumeyness fades. It becomes rich, creamy, and quite tasty!

Overall, this is a fairly decent EGC. I recall not being overly fond of Zen Tea Life’s one at the start from the bergamot as well, so I will see if this one ends up passing it as the go to. It’s certainly closer to purchase! Good tea, will rate 82 for now (unsure if it’s a restock yet, but pretty tasty). Oh and it’s quite cozy too :)

I was intrigued by your previous note today to check out their website – they have so many tasty sounding teas!

I know hey? Man I go in there and I want to try so many teas haha its tough to pick! They seem to do cream flavors with black teas fairly well.

I was eyeing the maple cream actually. I’m always a little wary of 50g though.

mrs.stenhouse12

It is a lot of tea unfortunately, but the price is pretty good, you can always swap it on here too! I can vouch for maple cream, very tasty, I almost got 50g of it yesterday actually lol I have only had a sample and loved it

Courtney

Awesome! I will definitely keep them in mind. I have quite the list of companies to order from at this point hah.
