This holiday season, we could all use a little something to look forward to. Get ready for a year-end glow-up in the form of tea: Winter Earl Grey. We’ve taken our classic citrusy & malty bergamot black tea and decked it out in red peppercorns & silver white tea. The result is creamy & fruity flavour with a sophisticated twist. Happy sipping.
What makes it great
An elevated version of classic Earl Grey with Bai Hao Yin Zhen white tea.
Last year’s holiday version of Forever Nuts was such a hit, we decided to try something similar with Earl Grey.
Black tea, Pink pepper, White tea, Natural (cream, vanilla) flavouring, Cornflower petals, Bergamot oil, Natural orange flavouring.
How it tastes
Citrusy & malty bergamot with a touch of vanilla that makes it creamy.

Picked this up because it sounded delicious, but for some reason, was really disappointed in the first cup. I can’t recall why. However, because of this inability to remember why I didn’t like it, I dug it out again for another cup this past week as I was craving earl grey, and round two was significantly more successful – although there is indeed something in the mix that is not my favourite. Perhaps the peppercorns? I might try a cup without any next time, although I don’t recall being bothered by then before. (That said, I just realized what tea this was reminding me of – and it also has pink peppercorns. Coincidence? I would enlighten everyone as to this tea I’m thinking of, but the name is completely eluding me.) It could also simply be that for some reason, DT’s cream earl grey hasn’t quite been hitting the spot that it used to, and the same is happening with this tea. Hard to say.
Day 4 of my DIY 24 Days of DAVIDsTea!
I was first hesitant to try this tea, because I’ve never been a fan of DT’s Cream of Earl Grey, but I knew I had to try Winter Earl Grey at least once to satisfy my curiosity.
I have to say, thankfully this blend has a palatable difference from CoEG. I’m enjoying the smooth, softer flavour. It has a strong enough citrus flavour to stand up against and not get drowned out by the creaminess of the vanilla & cream flavouring. It’s a good enough cup of Earl Grey that I don’t need to add any additional milk/cream, which is great.
New tea! My enjoyment of earl greys comes and god, but I’ve been going through an enjoyment phase recently. However, as soon as I smelled this I knew I wouldn’t like it…and I was right. It tastes pretty close to my memory of Cream of Earl Grey, which I really don’t like. This has a similar ‘not really vanilla, but a weird buttery synthetic cream’ flavoring that I don’t care for. Glad I didn’t buy 2oz.
I often feel like my cravings come in “waves” and right now the thing that I seem to be craving more than anything is creamy vanilla flavours – and that’s probably why I turned to this tea for my mid afternoon cuppa today. The vanilla flavour in this EG blend is so nice, and I’ve decided that it’s also something that I just find more prefetable to CEG as well. Silky, smooth and a balanced bergamot to compliment it!
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
