From Tiesta Tea

Our unique addition of vanilla and blue mallow flowers create a richer, creamier flavored version of an old favorite that would knock the Earl himself off his feet. A classic black tea rediscovered.

This is a pleasant mix of bergamot and vanilla over a pretty standard black base. I feel like the black base could be a bit stronger. I don’t find it unpleasant, but it isn’t nearly as bold as I prefer my Earl Grey. On the plus side, the more subdued flavor doesn’t leave me with a case of dry-mouth like some of the other Earl Grey teas I’ve sampled. This tea strikes a nice balance, with the vanilla being the strongest of the flavors. Overall, it’s a very enjoyable cup of tea and just what I needed after a long trip.

This is a tasty but pretty run of the mill Earl Grey creme. There’s a good balance of bergamot and creamy vanilla on a decent black base. Easy to drink, but nothing to write home about.

Thank you Lindsay for the sample!

WHY IS THIS TEA’S NAME IN ALL CAPS? (oh, I bet someone was copy-pasting from their website in order to preseve the (wrong) accent in crème. ok, nevermind, carry on.)

I decided to get this one out to compare with the Herbal Republic Earl Grey Cream. Compared to that one, this has a much more distinct vanilla/cream flavour, it’s like BAM, right there alongside the bergamot. It also adds a bit of sweetness. They’re both good, but I think I actually prefer the other one. Interesting.

Sometimes, some tea names just need to be YELLED OUT!

I sometimes go and edit weirdly formatted stuff in the database because this kind of thing makes me twitchy.

Mm. This stuff is fantastic— when I saw it wasn’t already on the site, I was amazed!

I picked this tea up on a whim on clearance, mostly because I’ve never been impressed with earl grey cream teas in the past and would never have paid full price for it. This has, of course, a classic earl grey flavor, smooth black tea and bergamot, nothing particularly special but not sharp or overly citrusy as some can be. Where this tea shines above other teas, especially Earl Grey creams I’ve had from other companies is the fact that it tastes like earl grey tea crossed with crème brûlée. It doesn’t have a chemical vanilla flavor like other earl grey creams do, instead it’s simple, sweet cream over a darker base and it marries wonderfully.

Do be warned, however, that this tea will turn bitter and lose all that wonderful stuff I described above and fast if over steeped.

I’ll definitely be purchasing this little gem again!
