Earl Grey Creme Black Tea
A smooth and rich combination of classic Earl Grey black tea and Bergamot oil with a touch of dairy-free creaminess coming from the vanilla pieces and cream flavoring added.
Brewing Instructions: (from Teavana)
Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 195-205 degrees and steep tea for 2-3 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Ratings & Reviews
Page 1 of 1 page with 4 reviewsOne of the first teas that I've ever had. Its aroma is of a light earl grey with a hint of citrus (not as much as a lady grey) and sweetness. I don't taste the citrus in the brew, but the creaminess comes through and creates a smooth, refreshing liquor that does not need milk or sugar to enjoy. Definitely a favorite and relatively cheap for something from Teavana.
First steep: 1.5tsp/8oz, 185 degrees, 3 minutes.
Second steep: 190 degrees, 3 minutes.
This is one of my favorite Earl Grey's. It's creamy, sweet, and delicious.

With a little soja milk, rice milk or without milk.
the problem is already teavana reduces the bergamot oil and taste less bergamot.
Slightly flowery and sweet with a creamy taste. I enjoy this tea brewed a bit weak so I can taste the vanilla better. I found this out at work cuz the water out of the coffee pot is about 175. Its a great "dessert" tea with some sweetener and a splash of milk. It is also a very pretty tea with bright blue flowers that bloom a little when you first add the water. I didn't think the aroma of the dried tea was a good indicator of the taste, and the brewed tea itself (at least when brewed 2 mins at around 175) smells sweet and pleasant, but not very tea-like.

Erin of My Curiositea gives a somewhat disappointed review of this tea, commenting that the vanilla is not very evident in the aroma, and that the tea was not as sweet as expected and fell short of her expectations for a Cream Earl Grey.
- Teavana Earl Grey Creme - Luxurious Liquids
Feb. 2, 2011
A mixed review of this tea on Luxurious Liquids; the reviewer comments that this blend seems to be lacking in lavender, and that the bergamot overpowers the vanilla. This review also notes that the body of this tea seems heavier than Teavana's normal Earl Grey.
