Creamy Earl Grey from Simpson & Vail

Creamy Earl Grey from Simpson & VailThere are a lot of varieties of Earl Grey on the market to choose from, in fact, Simpson & Vail alone carries eleven different Earl Grey varieties!  One of the most popular varieties of Earl Grey tea is cream Earl Grey.  This variety blends the Earl Grey tea with a creamy smooth vanilla.

This particular Earl Grey tea has delicious strong Black Tea as it’s base, and a natural, brisk {en:bergamot} flavor to produce a strong, delicious Earl Grey tea.  The cream flavoring is very soft and smooth, making one think of vanilla ice cream.  The vanilla is very prominent here and tastes very authentic.

Simpson & Vail describes this tea as:

The tantalizing aroma of this tea assails the senses and is rewarded in the smooth, creamy, velvet flavor that lingers on the taste buds.   Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

This tea is best served hot with a touch of sweetener and milk (or milk alternative) to bring out the creamy flavor.  Topping it with whipped cream would make it a delightful cold weather treat or dessert tea.

I’ve always enjoyed all of Simpson & Vail’s Earl Grey teas, and this one doesn’t disappoint at all.  It’s everything you could desire in a cream Earl Grey!   Makes a FABULOUS Earl Grey latté, just like they serve at Starbucks, only without costing you a ton of money!  It’s sweet, smooth, creamy and strong.

The cream EG sounds perfect – my only concern is that the vanilla flavoring might be too “disneylandish”.

Would you say it is rather “in your face” (like a milkshake) or more “true taste”?
