The concept of a creamy Earl Grey sounded great to me. Distinctly Tea says that this Earl Grey de la Crème has hints of vanilla and cream in it. Smelling the dry leaves, I can definitely pick up on the sweet vanilla scent. It almost smells like Earl Grey with a high-end coffee creamer mixed into it. Following the packaging, I steep a heaping teaspoon in eight ounces of just-boiled water for four minutes. The aroma of the steeping leaves still carries a tinge of the sweetness with a lot of Earl Grey and its bergamot. The resulting brew is a subtly sweet brew. The vanilla blends wonderfully with the not-overly-strong bergamot to create a very pleasant pick-me-up drink. On my personal enjoyment scale, I rate this tea an 88/100.
