From Tealeaves

Madagascar vanilla beans sweeten this culinary Earl Grey while lending a creamy full body and an exquisite lingering finish.

This tea is blended for dozens of our two- and three-star Michelin restaurant clients in Europe and Asia. The most “sweet” of our Earl Grey collection – perfect as a prelude to dessert.

Our Master Blender has taken a ubiquitous blend and given it a modern, yet oddly familiar, twist resulting in a decadent tea with soothing undertones. The sweetness of the vanilla enhances the smooth flavour of the tealeaves, providing the drinker with a truly comforting cup of tea.

“I love the diversity and the ability the Tealeaves tea blends have to bring a dish or cocktail together – in the back of the house, my pastry team found that the Vanilla Earl Grey and chocolate made a fantastic combination in our signature truffles.” – ICON Brent Martin

Vanilla is the second most expensive spice after saffron, as there is extensive labour required to grow the seed pods. Despite this setback (or perhaps because of it), it is highly valued for its flavour, and is widely used in both the commercial and domestic spheres in baking, perfumeries, and aromatherapy. Here, vanilla adds roundness and rich character to the citrus appeal from the oil of bergamot present in our Earl Grey blends.

Story time! About a year ago, I was on vacation with my best friends at Disney World. We had afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian hotel, where one of my friends ordered this tea. She’s a big fan of Earl Grey—and from her first sip of this one, she was swooning. She had all of us sample it, and we even went so far as to ask our server about it. (We noticed the vanilla note was especially good, so we were curious where it came from.) Anyway, I finally ordered some a month ago. I was curious to see if it would live up to the memory.

Long story short, it does. This is the best Earl Grey with vanilla that I’ve tried so far. It’s also one of the few teas I own where I can see grains of vanilla bean mixed in with the dry leaf. (Golden Orchid from Whispering Pines is another.) This tea smells delicious in the bag, and when it’s steeped. The vanilla is soft and creamy, and the bergamot is sharp and bright; neither overpowers the other. It’s clearly a luxury tea (and expensive), so I feel pretty lucky to have it in my cupboard. Since this is a black tea, it’s a good idea to watch the steeping time to avoid dryness (I try to keep it to 3 minutes max). My friend visited a week ago, and I surprised her by making her a cup of this. It was just as delicious as she remembered.


interesting….and tempting even as a blerg hater haha


Thanks to you, I just spent an embarrassing time on their site, drooling. Gaaaaaah!!


@Sil Yeah, it’s a great Earl Grey! But still an Earl Grey, haha.

@sweetea Agh, I know right? Their site is gorgeous!


Thank you so much for your kind words, KatBender! And glad to hear that you enjoy our site. We use all-natural top grade Madagascar vanilla in all of our vanilla teas, and first-press Italian bergamot oil for all Earl Greys, helping our master blenders to achieve that delicate balance you noticed. Happy tea drinking!
