“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.

Writer and visual artist. Major espresso guy but have moved back to tea after many years “away.” I enjoy both black teas and herbals.
I live in Washington DC with my husband of 8 years (tho been together 20) and our beloved old dog. Originally from Texas and have lived in the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, and Illinois before arriving in the Mid-Atlantic. Having been the beneficiary of the reviews and insights of other Steepsters, I figured I’d put down my own impressions on teas. Also love adding new teas as a way of thanking teamakers for putting their wares out into the world.
