Earl Grey Crème Black Tea from Teavana

May. 11th, 2019

This is my favorite Earl Grey Cream tea yet, and that's not a knock on Murchie's excellent rendition, which is a better value but just a notch below Teavana in richness.

Teavana has undergone a remaking of its marketing and strategy under the Starbucks banner: no more stand-alone tea shops, just 15-sachet plastic t...

Mar. 5th, 2019

Both the dry tea and steeped liquor have a perfumy peach aroma that smells to me like peach Jolly Rancher candy (a discontinued flavor, sadly). There's just enough passion fruit to be detectable, but I bought this particular flavor for the passion fruit and am a bit disappointed that it isn't stronger.

The fruit fla...

Feb. 28th, 2019

A local Middle Eastern market had a gift pack of this tea along with a free Ahmad tea mug for $4, so I couldn't pass it up. I decided to try it alongside the loose leaf Special Blend. One thing that I'll note is that, though I assume they're intended to be the same tea, the packaging on the bagged tea doesn't include t...

Feb. 1st, 2019

The "subtle flavor of bergamot" is definitely subtle. I can't actually smell any bergamot in the dry tea. Instead, it smells entirely like a malty CTC Assam.

While the tea's brewing, I can just make out the citrus through the tea. I'm getting less malt than when dry, but much more dry, tannic, earthy leaf with a bac...

Plenty sweet and lightly spiced with clove and vanilla. This has a fair amount of orange flavor too. More than a little artificial tasting, and the base tea is bland. Nothing special here, but it is well priced.

This was one of the few Earl grey brands I’ve tried that managed to disappoint me. Not much to say about the flavor or scent.

Wow. This was one of the best-executed, if not THE best, fruit black teas I've ever tried.

I'm not normally a fan of flavored teas, but I had the opportunity to smell this at my parent's house, and the leaf smelled really appealing. The fruitiness is strong but it doesn't completely cover the aroma of the tea itself...

Jan. 4th, 2019

Twinings is a very afforadle and accessible brand of bagged teas - and if you like a classic Earl Grey (Bergamot flavor), and if you happen to like lavendar - the aroma of this tea is very nice. I would rather sniff it than drink it! I tried it hot with no dairy (ick) and no sweetener but a tad bit of honey might be ...

I adore this spicy tea. It tastes like Christmas morning in a cup. This one is good with or without a bit of honey; it is sweet enough to drink on its own. A splash of cream makes for a decadent treat. This tastes almost like melted red hot candies. It is powerful!

If you like very spicy teas like Assam chai, you w...

For a store-brand bagged tea, this seasonal offering was excellent! My immediate impression sniffing the dry bag was a striking resemblance to the flavor (not smell) of Good Earth's "Sweet and Spicy": very intense on cinnamon, with orange quite noticeable. However, unlike the Good Earth tea, this one has black tea (...

Incredibly strong fruity chocolate aroma which stays fairly throughout the brewing process. Taste-wise the tea is smooth with more of the fruitiness to it.

The tea visually looks great with the little cocoa pieces in it too.

A very sweet strawberry smell dry with a bit of vanilla, unfortunately it mainly tastes like strawberry tea when prepared.

It isn't bad strawberry flavoured tea though, really nice and drinkable but it doesn't really have any cream to it unless I add milk.

Amazing in all respects.

The smell is spot on for the dessert really breathing in the fresh baked pastry. The flavour is subtler than the aroma but you can still taste the spices and pear throughout.

At £4 for 15 pyramid bags is quite dear for tea bags however with most of this dessert tea range it is worth it f...

Smells like a sweet jammy cake before steeping, a truly mouthwatering smell. After steeping the strawberry aroma subdued and less sweet. The taste itself mirrors the subdued aroma with the strawberry being the main flavour coming through with the tea.

15 pyramid bags for £4 is towards the higher end of what I'd usu...

This tea smells AMAZING, so christmassy! I could not wait to drink it after opening the box.

However first time it tasted awful, reminded me of soap. I thought “oh no maybe I made it wrong or forgot to wash my strainer properly.” So I tried again being super careful to ensure nothing would taint the flavour and ...

Given the ingredients list, here was a tea that caught both my eye and a few bucks of my credit-card balance, while stocking up at a Dallas Trader Joe's on some things I don't get in nearby Oklahoma markets.

Overall, it's not quite as high-quality as the other Earl Grey Creme tea I've tried (the bagged version from ...

This tea pissed me off. It's a mediocre flavored tea, it's mismarketed, and it's grossly overpriced. It doesn't even taste like Earl Grey, it tastes nothing like the commercial description, not the current one listed on the site nor the one listed on my sample bag, nor is there any explanation of the discrepancy on the...

I don't hate this tea but I really don't like it either. It costs 24 cents per cup and I can have much better black tea for cheaper than that so it's not worth it for me. The aroma is very faint and just smells like black tea. This tea tastes smooth but its also kind of plain. The aftertaste kind of tastes like paper t...

This tea is a delicious smell and a delicious taste. This tea is fairly priced for being a different kind of Earl Grey, the extra flavoring brings out more than expected for such a dainty look. The brew is better on its own with no additives but a little sugar brings a lot more flavor.

When you have lemons, make lemonade? That seems to have happened here. While not overpowering, the distinct aroma of lemon wafted rather aggressively out of the pouch when I tore it open, and that scent stayed in the dry bag strongly until pouring the hot water through it. The in-cup smell was more balanced, but the...

As far as breakfast teas go, I've always been a fan of Earl Grey. That said, I do have my favorites and many companies don't seem to do Earl Grey justice. While this isn't my favorite, it is an excellent option. It's smooth but with a smoky/sweet flavor, not unexpected from a Darjeeling tea. This particular tea gets al...

Admittedly I haven't been up to the Urban Teahouse location in OKC as of this writing, but drinking this at a Norman breakfast restaurant, and getting a sample to take home and chug, makes me want to pay a dangerous visit next time I'm up in that part of "The Big Town". Why dangerous? Because of what that visit woul...

I have a bit of a weakness for Earl Grey for my "morning" coffee, but this is similar enough to make my shelf! It has just a touch of lavender to it, which offsets the Earl Grey-ish flavor wonderfully. While I drank my first cup straight, I suspect this would be wonderful with a touch of honey. I may have to try that n...

Like the other standard tea bags from H&S, the tea is chopped very fine. Dry, it smells strongly of the bergamot oil, but there's also a maltiness from the tea. It's not strong, but it's a step up from many Earl Grey teas.

Adding the water unexpectedly mutes the aroma. The citrus fades to the background and the tea...

Jul. 15th, 2018

The dry tea is quite broken and smells almost like Froot Loops. Unlike most Earl Greys, though, the aroma of the tea is discernible beneath the bergamot.

The brewed tea smells mostly of malt and bergamot. The tea tastes more bitter and astringent than I expected. Based on Ahmad's other teas, I was expecting the blen...
