If you are fan of Earl Grey and have not tried this, you are in for a treat. Earl Grey Cream has a taste that is smooth with vanilla overtones which stand out above the premium bergamot flavor the signature taste of Earl Grey. Our flavoury Earl Grey mellowed with a delicious creamy taste. An excellent all day tea with a superb finish.

Quite an accomplishment! Review by looseTman
This tea Earl Grey has a strong vanilla fragrance.
Vibrant reddish hue
First 4-min Infusion:
There is an equally balanced lemon & vanilla aroma, followed by a very smooth, medium-bodied lemon taste without tartness. The overall aroma (bergamot, vanilla, & Ceylon blend) has notes of toasted marshmallows according to my wife’s keen sense of smell. There’s just enough creamy vanilla to smooth out the oil of bergamot tartness, but not so much as to obscure the classic EG flavor. There was zero hint of bitterness or astringency from this blend of Ceylon teas. The taste of lemon lingers on the tongue.
2nd 4-min Infusion:
I was surprised that a mild lemon flavoring was still present – quite enjoyable.
Impression: An excellent, much smoother Earl Grey tea that’s very well-balanced preserving the Classic EG flavor – Quite an accomplishment!

Great Afternoon Tea Review by Sarah
This is my first experience with Earl Grey Cream tea. It's a delicious and delicate tea, perfect for the afternoon. I felt elegant while drinking it - and for that alone, this tea is worth it. It's creamy and has a subtle citrus flavor. I would have liked a stronger bergamot flavor, but that's probably because I'm so used to plain Earl Grey. (Posted on 3/8/13)
The creamiest of the ten (at least) Earl Grey Creams I have tried! Review by C
I knew I would love this one, since it’s Earl Grey Cream and also from Zen. The dry leaves here just SMELL creamier than other EGCs. And the taste is creamier too! There is actually a creamy texture left on my tongue. The black tea isn’t too tough, so that may be why the cream flavor can stand out. The bergamot isn’t too strong… I would have liked it a bit stronger. This is definitely the one to replace my beloved SpecialTeas (RIP) Earl Grey Cream when that one runs out! Any tea fan really needs to try an Earl Grey Cream, and this is certainly one to start with. (Posted on 1/22/13)
Creamy Vanilla! Review by ashmanra
I wondered what all the fuss as about Earl Grey Cream. Now I know! Yes, it is an Earl Grey, but this isn't a simple cream flavor or a simple vanilla flavor added. It is a beautifully balanced fresh, homemade whipped cream with vanilla taste that would knock your socks off...except it is too mellow and elegant to do such a thing! Very tasty!

Delicious Review by Rellybob
The bergamot and added cream flavoring work very well in this tea. I found it quite sweet and in no need of cream or sweetener! Really good. (Posted on 11/20/12)
This is, hands down, my favorite Earl Grey tea. Review by Veronica
This is, hands down, my favorite Earl Grey tea. The tea actually smells creamy when you open the package! The tea leaves themselves are an excellent quality. The bergamont lends its distinctive flavor without being overwhelming, and the vanilla blends in perfectly (no artifical aftertaste!). So, so delicious.
This tea is creamy and smooth. Perfect for afternoon tea, but I think it would be good any time of day. A definite keeper. (Posted on 10/24/12)
A really delicious offering! Review by Ash-Lee
A really delicious offering!
I love all Earl Grey Creams, but this one takes the cake. Juicy and fragrant, with an extremely creamy vanilla note.
I would happily serve this to company, and even more happily keep it all for myself! (Posted on 10/24/12)
