I thought this tea was ok. I ordered it accidently instead of a normal earl grey. oops. It was okay but I actually liked the roobois blend I had better. Next time I will order the right earl grey.

The blue color in this tea before brewing fascinates me. It is very pretty to look at. This tea is a full bodied tea with a smooth sweet flavor. It was the first tea I bought after I was pulled into the tea world by a good friend and it only confirmed my believe that I was hooked.
Good enough to warrant deciding that my initial love-hate affair is over with it. I have to admit I like this stuff every so often. I hate bergamot, but it plays nicely in this creamy, moody tea. It’s not a grab-and-chug tea (not for lack of trying). It’s sort of like having an audience with the Queen- you don’t just go up, say hey how’s it going, I like you (or not) and then walk away. This one commands respect and packs the rich flavor to go with it. So go have this audience with this softly-commanding, slightly romantic, delicious strange creature. It’s worth it!

I was really excited to try this tea. Many people said how great of an earl grey it was. I have nothing against flavored teas as a general rule. At first it smelled kind of nice when I opened the bag. Creamy vanilla with a hint of citrus, okay.
But then I brewed it and tasted it, oh Lord. It was sickly, the “cream” tasted like some kind of sickly sweet chemical. I opened up my bag of Cream black tea to smell it and had the same experience. It made me nauseous. Sweetening it didn’t help to mask anything, nor did adding milk.
I WISH this tea tasted as delicious as it smells!
My coworker and I both ordered this at the same time and we were really excited to try it. He received it first (remote workers) and said it tasted like nothing. I was disheartened. No way, the description was too great for it to taste like nothing. I got my order an hour later and brewed it up immediately. It tasted… like nothing. I was so disappointed.
I’ll drink it occasionally because I have the big bag and I want to get rid of it. Shame it doesn’t come in the sample size because I would have ordered that instead. Then I wouldn’t have felt so bad throwing it out. :[
I bought a sample of this in a big order I made from Adagio teas. I made this after breakfast and I liked looking at the liquor, dark and golden.
The smell of the dry leaves in the bag is very strong and quite overpowering. Kinda made my stomach queasy. But the portion I steeped wasn’t overpowering in smell which I appreciated.
The first brew was very creamy in taste. And hmm it’s manageable but I liked the second steeping better. (2nd Steep: 5:20min, Boiling) More of the earl grey taste came through but it’s still smooth.
I think I may not like creamy teas unless I add milk. So I might try that the next time I have this.
But for now I have other samples to try throughout the day.
Flavors: Cream, Earl Grey, Smooth
Normally I really dislike Earl Grey teas, but I got this one as a free sample. And I have to say… I am surprised to find it growing on me. I’m not sure I’d order a whole bag of it but I’d definitely drink it as part of a blend. The flavor is very smooth to me.
