I thought it was a really smooth Earl Grey and not nearly as acidic as some Greys that I’ve had. The combined aroma of the large amount of bergamot and vanilla reminds me of blueberry. The sweetness was subtle, but did leave the bergamot taste on my tongue for a while afterwards.

I always thought that I did not like Earl Grey tea until I tasted this ……. Wow ! Not real astringent, as most Earl Grey’s are. Really nice taste of bergamot with vanilla to mellow it (or enhance it?). Must get more !!!!!

I have never been a fan of Earl Grey tea. This is probably because the ones I’ve had were store bought tea bags and they would have never tasted that great. So I had my qualms when I saw this was an Earl Gret blend. But boy was I wrong.

The tea smells heavenly! It’s almost like this beautiful perfume that I want on my wrist. And the tea leaves look beautiful with the pop of the purplish blue cornflowers.

I tried steeping the tea at 3 minutes and also did a fresh steep of 5 minutes. And there was not a hint of bitterness. I just kinda shut up while I had this blend. It was such a calming blend with a magical harmony between the citrus from the bergamot oil and the touch of vanilla added this creaminess to the blend. I instantly classified it as a dessert tea that would also serve as a tea that could be had at any time of the day. The finish of the blend was silky smooth. With this blend, the aroma is what you taste and there is a richness that this tea has which sets it apart.

The Art of Tea’s Earl Grey Creme was my favorite blend from their box. Absolutely loved this one.

Sometimes a tea comes along and it makes me wonder where it’s been my entire life— this is one of those teas. It’s quite distinctive in the realm of Earl Grey Creme teas. The French vanilla provides a much more substantial body than the more traditional vanilla and reminds me of the thick, creamy custards I enjoyed during my visit to France over the summer. The black base, bergamot, and French vanilla balance perfectly; the contrast between the tart orange bergamot and sweet French vanilla really appeals to my sweet tooth. This was exactly what I needed to end a rough day.

I normally do not like Earl Grey, but this one was good.

The hint of french vanilla, as it turns out, is a bit…overwhelming? The Bergamot is too subtle.
