I was excited to taste a new Earl Grey from a new-to-me tea company! And this is a really tasty Cream of Earl Grey! There is a nice balance between bergamot and creamy vanilla.
The dry leaf aroma is strong and bergamot-y with lovely notes of vanilla. The brewed tea fragrance is softer than the dry leaf, and I am smelling more vanilla now than bergamot.
To brew this tea, I used my Breville One-Touch and measured 2 bamboo scoops into the basket of the tea maker and poured 500ml of freshly filtered water into the jug. I set the parameters: 205°F and 2 1/2 minutes.
This produced a really flavorful cup! The black tea base is smooth and medium to full bodied. There is a dry astringency to the finish. It’s a fairly even-tempered type of black tea, I suspect this is a Ceylon.
This tea has been really carefully blended, with a bright bergamot flavor with the right amount of vanilla. The smooth vanilla notes soften the edge of the bergamot, creating a really decadent type flavor. It’s silky and creamy and sweet with a nice contrast of tangy from the bergamot.
A really good Earl Grey creme tea.
