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.

Talk about watery tea! I was excited to try this since I like the flavor of Earl Grey, but right out of the bag the scent was cloying. Like those citrus air fresheners, but with some vanilla added in. Luckily the tea doesn’t taste the same when brewed—in fact, it hardly tastes at all! There are some notes of Earl Grey flavor, but the tea turns out the same watery way no matter how much I use or how long I steep it. Overall, kind of a disappointment.

I have been wanting to try this for a while to compare it to Tealuxe’s Creme de la Earl Grey and finally got the opportunity today when my MIL brought some over. I excitedly opened the package and inhaled my first sniff and was disappointed. The smell was artificial in an unpleasant way. I went ahead and brewed a cup and the taste of the tea was not as bad as the smell. It was not bad, just not nearly as good to me as the one from Tealuxe (which I personally adore). I am glad I sampled this before ordering.

I normally find earl grey to be soapy, but found that the creme versions help cut that, alongside some milk. I like this most in the morning, even more so now that it is spring and the citrus reflects the freshness of spring.

I can’t drink this tea without milk. My tastebuds really protest cornflowers. I didn’t realize this had cornflowers when I purchased it. With that said, this is nice with some added milk because the milk masks the cornflower flavor. I had really high hopes for this because I love Earl Grey Bravo.

Flyawaybirdie sent me a sample of this in her Christmas card :) Thanks, Flyawaybirdie!

I have been wanting to try another earl grey cream for a while now and this fit the bill! I think there may be better versions out there, so I’ll keep looking for a few more to try. But, this is definitely something I could enjoy drinking regularly, especially for the price.

So, I took my own advice and brewed fresh tea. The tea is darker this time with a warm scent that reminds me of caramel. It tastes better too, though I wouldn’t say that the vanilla is as prominent as I would like. The Earl Grey is there, but not as strong as I would like. The citrus notes are stronger, now that I can taste the tea. I did wonder how the added citrus would affect the taste. I don’t know if I like this addition or not. It’s not the best vanilla earl grey I’ve tasted, but it would probably add more depth to whatever you decided to add it to. It does taste more like orange than bergamot.

Taste: 7 (It does have the vanilla and Earl Grey elements there, but the orange peel seems to be the predominant flavor. That’s not necessarily what I want in my Earl Grey, but it’s not like it doesn’t meld with the other flavors. I do think the taste balances out as it cools, giving it a stronger flavor. I might have to try it iced.)
Tea Leaf: 6 (It doesn’t match the picture. It’s a lot more dust than I would expect, and not what I would call whole leaf. It looks cut like what you would get in a tea bag. the cornflower and orange peel are there, but not in big pieces.)
Smell: 7 (Prior to steeping, I didn’t really get much of an Earl Grey vibe off of it, and it didn’t really smell like vanilla. Since those are the two things that I would look for, I was a bit disappointed that it wasn’t noticeable. Brewed, it has a caramel smell, which could be the mix of vanilla and creme.
Would I drink it again: 7 (I think it would be great mixed. I’m getting a sample of it in the mail, and I don’t think I would buy it immediately, but if I had it in the closet, I would drink it. It’s good to share with friends who are on the fence about tea.)
How it compares to similar teas: 5 (It doesn’t beat out any of the competitors, unless you include the bagged varieties. It’s good for what it is, but I’ll buy my cream earl grey teas elsewhere, and reserve this for blends.)
Would I recommend it to others: Yes +5 / No 0
Total: (37×2) 74
(Still working on this rating thing. I should stop rating them simply based on the smily faces at the bottom…)

I’m glad the second time around worked out better for you. It’s not a very strong flavoring- I tend to liken it to tea + cream orangsicles, much more vanilla cream than citrus. If you want a more robust bermagot flavor in the Adagio line, the Earl Grey Bravo is more citrusy I think.

If you’re looking for an Earl Grey alternative, this is it! It has well balanced notes of cream and bergamont. There’s a really nice overlaying floral quality to it as well, and only a mild astringency to it. I often find earl greys too bergamont flavoured, but not this one. Definitely a staple in the cabinet. Makes a pretty great iced tea too!

I absolutely love this tea! I think it is awesome that it has the creamy taste already built in rather then having to put it into the tea! This is my go-to Earl Grey drink!
