This is probably okay to cook with but for the price, you can get a better tea base. This is pretty harsh and to me there is nothing special about it. It’s not undrinkable, it just isn’t a stand-out.

I got it as part of an order to see if I wanted to become a consultant. I think I’ve had enough really great tea over the past couple of years that I can’t bring myself to sell this to other people at the prices Steeped Tea charges. Not when I know that for the same money you can get truly excellent teas.

That’s good to know! My aunt is buying me some tea from there and I was looking at what was required to host a party / be a consultant etc, but I wouldn’t be comfortable with it if the tea wasn’t enjoyable.


I wanted to try the tea before I jumped into selling it and I’m glad I did. I expect many who are not as exposed to tea would like this. Maybe you’ll find something in what your aunt gets you that you like. :) And there is always the possibility that I got a not so good batch.

I will be buying this at a future Steeped Tea Party. I got a sample. It was wonderful!

I’ve been enjoying creaming Earl Grey loose leaf teas for several years now – sampling blends from lots of different tea shops. This Steeped Tea blend is a particularly lovely blend. The iconic bergamot flavour is strong but very well balanced by the creaminess that makes this tea such a memorable go-to for me. In addition to drinking this tea, I have also started experimenting with using it in different recipes. My Earl Grey de la Creme pancakes were a hit at our breakfast table last weekend. My 10 year old liked them even better then the Cherry Pie Rooibos pancakes I made the day before.

This is probably my favourite earl grey EVER. It’s got this almost creamy flavour naturally that other earl greys really like. A perfect tea, good for both light and strong brews.

This was my first ever black tea and I loved the creaminess to it. I was always afraid that black teas were strong and bitter but boy was I wrong. I love this Tea!

I have always been curious about Steeped Tea. An acquaintance of mine sells it, but I didn’t really want to buy it from her just in case I didn’t like it, because then I would feel like I would have to continue buying from her, even if I didn’t like the tea. I have also thought about being a consultant. So many of my friends are into the “sell from home” type of thing….maybe I should give it a try. So I guess I needed to try the tea to see if I was really interested. And then years went by and I never got around to sampling some of the tea.
A couple of weeks ago, I went to a trade/craft sale and there was a lady selling this. I asked her what her fav black tea and she suggested this one. I thought, here’s my chance to try this company, and I like earl grey generally, so I will give it a shot.
On to the tea….the bergamot is a little strong in this blend. There is a hint of vanilla but not “creamy” enough in my opinion. The base seems to be a tad astringent but maybe I should lower the temp next time I brew.
Overall, I like the cream earl grey from Zen tea and the blend from my local tea shop more than this offering.
The price point of $10/bag is a little too high to pay (in my opinion). But maybe that was just what this particular lady was selling it for, I’m not sure what price they usually are.

I will have to try the other tea that I bought from the company, but I think I will pass on becoming a consultant for this company…..maybe I should sell my own hand crafted items instead!

That was my overall impression. Okay tea, but too high a price point for what you get.


I have only tried one tea from this company, coco-sweet sencha. I loved it and am getting some for myself. I do want to try more of their teas, but I wish I could try more without hosting a party and all that jazz.


I was thinking it was like Tupperware or Pampered Chef – you could find a consultant online to buy from without a party.


I am not even sure how it works online. I have never even looked at their website actually!


The thing I find with steeped tea is that its more cost effective per gram when you order 100g vs 50g. Many teas are around $10/50g but then about $17/100g. It really makes it costly to try new teas. I already find 50g a lot to commit to, never mind 100g…

I don’t like home selling parties in general, so I have a consultant I found online and I just shoot her a facebook message every time I want to buy some tea, and pick it up at her house.

The best Cream of Earl Grey I have had. super creamy and has the right balance of bergamot. I have tried a lot of other companies version of this tea and nothing measures up to it. Definitely an earl grey lover’s staple! (You can buy it here: http://www.mysteepedtea.com/TEAWITHKAYLA/shop/PRODUCTDETAIL.aspx?prod=1011 )

My mom got a pouch of this in a mixed basket of various home business products and forwarded it to me. I sniffed it, thought it smelt tasty enough, but was pretty disappointed. I’m surprised by comments that say this was heavy with vanilla because I’m barely getting any, it just turned out like a general Earl Grey, perhaps a bit bitter, but I’m a chronic oversteeper so I won’t fault the tea for my tendency to get distracted and forget about it. Not bad, not great, but drinkable. I’ll finish the baggy but it won’t be replacing my staple cream Earl Grey.

I forgot all about this during yesterday’s epic Earl Grey face-off. :) I just have a small bag of it, got it from one of those community fundraising things a couple years back. Anyway, I was in the mood for a tea I could add milk to, and this was near the front of my cupboard (how did I miss it yesterday) so here we are.

It smells really good, like there’s a definite creamy vanilla scent that blends in well with the bergamot. When I first tasted it, I was suprised to find it quite bitter! Like, enough so that I couldn’t really pay attention to the other flavours at all. It tasted like I had oversteeped it, though the package says steep for 3-7min and I went with 4min, so I didn’t think that was particularly excessive. Anyway, I guess it’s a good thing that I was planning to add milk to this anyway! I added more than my usual splash of milk, and that made it entirely drinkable. It still smells a lot better than it tastes, though.

I’ve been super curious about their teas. Guess I can cross this one off the list.

I love Earl Greys, so I was all YAY when I received this as a sample. It’s pretty good, but perhaps a bit too vanilla-tasting for my liking. I like to be able to taste my bergamot, and I’m not really getting any of that here. That said, it’s still quite drinkable as a Monday morning beverage.
