From Nepali Tea Traders

Amoda Tea Monthly Box – May 2015

This is perfect Spring afternoon Earl Grey. The black tea is light and works to create an elegant blend. With the added sweet orange peel, fragrant bergamot and a touch of Bourbon vanilla bean from Madagascar, this is delicious with or without milk or sugar.

Ingredients: Nepalese black tea, orange peel, bergamot, Madagascar Bourbon vanilla bean

Steep It
1 tsp per 8 oz cup
95°C/200°F
3-4 minutes

From Nepali Tea Traders:

We begin with our light black tea, adding sweet orange peel, fragrant bergamot and a touch of Bourbon vanilla bean from Madagascar. The result is a beautifully balanced Earl Grey, subtle, refined and delicious. We think our Everest Earl Grey is truly the pinnacle of this world-famous tea.

Another from VariaTEA and yes…it’s an early grey. But this is a muted, orange-ish sort of tea. it’s less earl grey and more…weird orange black tea. Not a fan…was hoping from something different with the vanilla addition in this one.

I ordered a sample of this from Amoda tea right before they sold out. The vanilla bean is the star of this blend. It is super fragrant in the dry leaf, and truly vanilla bean in flavor (not vanilla flavoring, not cream or frosting flavored). The black tea is rich and smooth without being too overpowering. The orange notes are just present enough to confirm this is an earl grey, but the citrus definitely takes a backseat to the herbal vanilla. I don’t drink my tea with milk or sugar, so I am getting the most robust take on this blend. I bet this would be decadent and comforting with a dose of milk. I will be eager to see when this ends up back in stock, it’s the suavest earl grey I’ve had the pleasure to drink.

It looks like Amoda no longer carries this one, but you can still purchase it through the Nepali Tea Traders website.

Earl Grey is one of my favorites so I’m excited to try Nepali Tea Traders’ interpretation with vanilla bean and added orange peel. The tea leaves appear to be chopped into smaller pieces in this one. There are small bits of orange peel but I don’t see any of the vanilla bean yet. The color of the liquid after steeping is a red mahogany and the taste is bergamot with a bit of tang. I really wish I could taste the vanilla. I was so excited about a vanilla Earl Grey. Maybe I just didn’t get any vanilla bean pieces in this cup.

Second Steep
8 ounces + 195 degrees + 6 minutes

This second cup was not so bold as the first, but it also seemed smoother. I think I prefer it to the first cup actually.

Flavors: Bergamot, Smooth, Tangy
