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!
