I hope everyone who celebrates had a great Easter. Cream egg! An essential Easter treat is Cadbury eggs. I love the Cadbury cream eggs.  I love the mini eggs. I received a sample of this recently.  Maybe the magic is in a single fresh teabag because this tastes like a luscious cream egg to me!  I was a little worried with this jasmine being here… I thought it would ruin it.  And there isn’t really a creamy component to the tea… like marshmallow or something.  That would make it a little too much like their Easter Egg Nests blend.  This is very similar but without the green tea, which means it is much smoother.  Cocoa shells for delicious chocolate flavor. However, somehow the second steep does have a bit of a bite to it… so pretty much just like Easter Egg Nests.  I like this one!  But again, it’s probably the magic of the single wrapped teabag and it needs to be a bit more special than just chocolate.  I already have a ton of Easter Egg Nests in stock.

Rethinking this though, and having a fresh cadbury egg, a cream egg is actually way more of the cream sugar bits than the chocolate bits, and without that middle part of the egg represented in the tea, and only a bit of a chocolate flavor, this is a bit of a fail of a tea blend.

Got this one in my March subscription package!

I figured I would just get this over with, as upon opening the packet I was overwhelmed with the scent of chocolate flavoring…

It’s actually not that bad. There’s definitely an artificial quality to the chocolate, but it also does kind of taste like a Cadbury Creme Egg. It has a certain sweet fondant-like quality to it, and a hint of an alcoholic note. It’s like somewhere between a cream egg and a chocolate-covered cherry.

No bad, just not for me. Into the rehoming box it goes!

I haven’t opened it yet, but as I recall it from last year. I am considering not opening it at all and moving it to swapbox as well.

“Oh my god.” — upon first smelling the contents of the little tea sachet!
This just arrived in the mail from Bird & Blend as a sample along with my latest order from them. Just another example of the wild scents good tea creators can evoke when they’re in firing on all cylinders. The creaminess is so present to the nose it seems overkill to add any milk to this tea. So I didn’t. It works just fine as it is. I added a little bit of sweetener of choice and found it a pleasurable alternative to the sugar coma levels of its namesake. I’m sitting her sipping on it and can’t for the life of me pull out what I’m tasting — I mean it’s delicious — but beyond buttery, I’m at a loss here. There’s a milk chocolate mellowness to it. Also caramel, I guess? Yeah, yeah. Buttery caramel. I’ll go with that.
I’d be bummed at just having the sample, but having recently signed up for the Bird & Blend subscription service, I’m delighted to see Cream Egg is included in their regular March subscription box (for Easter I suppose). So I look forward to many more cups of this new tea.

I’m seeing nothing but glowing reviews on B&B site and expecting something marvellous, but it wasn’t that for me.
Doesn’t taste like the name Cream Egg would imply, but more like a weak black tea. Can also taste a slightly sweet vanilla flavour with the tang of the black tea but that’s it – there isn’t any chocolatey flavour like the description promised. How on earth could tea taste like chocolate, anyway?
Perhaps they could try making this as a hot chocolate with real pieces of fondant in? Tea cannot taste like chocolate or at least not in my experience.

March 2020 subscription.

Artificial aroma, full of chocolate; alcohol liquor of the dry blend.

Brewed 4 grams / 96 °C water / almost 4 minutes.

Not only the brew was weak. It was kind of strange in taste as well. It reminded me mostly Milka milk chocolate which I am not fan of. Then some vanilla notes and… again some alcohol. Sherry maybe? It wasn’t that bad as I was afraid reading Amada’s tasting note, but… it wasn’t that enjoyable as I have hoped. Now the pouch is really strongly alcohol like when I smelled it. Brew was really sweet for me as well.

I don’t know, I never had a cream egg. But I suppose it isn’t alcohol like?

Hey. So bad tea for tasting note #500? Sad :/

Ilse Wouters

Have you ever tried Cadbury´s Cream Eggs? I think Bird&Blend´s intention was to make a tea tasting like that. I personally don´t like it, but I think it´s a typical sweet British are fond of…foreigners not too much, I reckon ;-)

tea-sipper

I LOVE cadbury cream eggs. I wish a tea could recreate that flavor. Also, Martin – since the blend is so fresh the alcohol flavor might fade over time and taste better.

Martin Bednář

Ilse Wouters: Nope, as they aren’t available here. Or I just missed them? I don’t know.
Tea-sipper: I will hope. It was quite nice when I smelled it (when it came), then I smelled again after few days – was artificial, now… it is alcohol based.

I have one Cadbury egg in reserve for an emergency. Came close to breaking into it last week, but the barrage has temporarily passed ;)

ashmanra

Two of my daughters love Cadbury Cream Eggs, but one swears along with other people I have heard from that the ones in the US are not as high quality as the ones in the UK. But I hear the same about Twinings tea….better in Europe than what is sold here. BUt surely it is the same?

tea-sipper

I’ve probably never had the UK Cadbury egg, but I think the quality slightly changed in the US version a few years ago, so I don’t doubt that the UKs are better.

Ilse Wouters

@ashmanra : it´s not unlikely to have different formulations for same brand in different country, as sometimes they are locally produced under contract. Please look (small print) on the wrapping, as it should specify it. But I doubt this is the case for the tea though. As a Belgian, in about everything chocolate related, I´m not exactly keen on the overly sweet milk chocolate Cadbury offers, but prefer a cacao butter based chocolate as is usual in Belgium and France. Which reminds me that this year, I won´t be having traditional easter eggs, as I have changed my travel plans :-(

I definitely believe the US vs. UK cream eggs are different! Other Cadbury varieties taste infinitely better in the UK (the Fruit and Nut bar in particular).

Martin Bednář

Only recently they started to sell Cadburry stuff here; and it is really pricy as well, so I have no idea. And although Easter season is in the shop, I haven’t seen Cadburry Cream eggs at all. Only some Milka chocolate eggs.

I got this in my March subscription from Bird and Blend. This is honestly not a tea I would’ve purchased, because chocolate teas are just a bit too hit or miss for me, and there didn’t seem to be anything too extraordinary about this one. I made most of the sample as a cold brew in almond/cashew/pea milk (which is still in the fridge), and the rest hot (with nothing added). Hot, it’s pretty gross. It has that awkward thinness that so many chocolate teas suffer from, and that dreaded synthetic flavor. It’s just not good.

AJRimmer

Yeah I love Bird & Blend in general, but their chocolate teas never seem to work for me.

Martin Bednář

Yep, received in subscription as well and this one I am not really sure if I want to drink this one. I smelled it and it was quite artificial. But who knows, maybe I will like it?

Shanie O Maniac

I absolutely adore cream eggs. Even if this one tasted exactly like a cream egg, I don’t think I could drink it. I’m too loyal to the original.
