Lovers of Earl Grey adore this creamy alternative to the original blend. You’ll recognize the same high-quality black tea, the same citrus burst of bergamot oil, the same beautiful grey-blue petals. However this version adds a touch of vanilla, and the result is an unexpectedly rich, creamy taste experience. (MK Kosher).

I couldn’t taste bergamot in it. It was still tasty but not at all like an Earl Grey should taste.

Flavors: Licorice, Sweet

whew. I love Earl Grey and I really didn’t like this one. I think I’ve narrowed it down to the vanilla flavoring that threw me way off. Whatever it was, this just did not work for me at all.

I bought this remembering the first time i had EGC at the Granville Island Tea Company when I was 18. This didn’t match my memory and was more malt and vanilla and less bergamot that I remember. My husband loved it and is sipping away.

Not sure if i got a bad batch as I ordered from DavidsTea on Amazon or if it just isnt for me. 2 tsp tea. 475ml water for 5 min as per the package.

I might make a Granville Island purchase to compare.

Edit: i tried a cup today at Davids Tea… I just dont like it.

the ingredients on my container and on the site are listed as Organic: Black tea, marigolds. With cornflowers and natural flavouring. THERE IS NO BERGAMOT in this. So IDK why they call it an earl grey since the whole concept of earl grey is black tea with bergamot. It tastes like melted ice cream with a weird pepto bismol aftertaste. I couldn’t even finish the cup it was that bad. Simply gross.

Day… 18? of DavidsTea’s 24 Days of Tea 2017

I tried it black at first, and it was pretty bitter, but it wasn’t so bad when i added milk and sugar. I dunno, I don’t really drink much earl grey. I’d probably drink it again (with milk and sugar) if I was offered some, but i wouldn’t go out of my way for some more of this tea.

This is one of the oldest teas I have. I got it in a boxed set way back when when I first converted from coffee to tea and disliked it immensely when I first tried it. I tried it black then. To me, it tasted of imitation flavours and false perfumey sweetness. Could not understand the huge fan base.

I may have mentioned that I am staying at a friend’s place to escape from baby world here. It feels like I am on vacation. With me, I brought just a skeletal wardrobe of clothing, a medium-sized batch of kitchen gear, and a huge colossus of teas as I had been in the midst of long overdue swap preparation. I was determined to not overthink things—this time—so I threw packets into my bag and then I threw more packets into my bag and then started another bag and threw some more into that one. Came across this one in a collection/assortment arranged in some order likely understood by me at some point, but not quite now. Now or never, I threw it into the bag. Now after all this time, I had a cup, added half and half, and wow.

I’ve had several cups of this now. Quite nice. I just may finish this one up before I move back home.

The vanilla taste is harsh and jarring and doesn’t taste like real vanilla bean. Other than the vanilla, the bergamot flavouring is pleasant but somewhat weak, overpowered by the vanilla. I will keep this around for variety and guests, but will not likely repurchase.

I love Earl Grey tea, but this was not very good. The artificial vanilla smell puts me right off, and the tea itself is extremely weak and needs a lot of steeping.

I didn’t care for this earl grey. I don’t enjoy the black tea base used and I didn’t find the cream flavour very good. It tasted more like cream cheese than cream/milk flavour.
