This is a must have tea in your stash. Always have some on hand.
One of the most enduringly loved and widespread teas is certainly a ripe candidate for variation. And so we have Cream of Early Grey, a wonderful and silky take on the incredibly popular Earl Grey stalwart. But we'll not leave you guessing: the difference is melting sweetness; vanilla and floral, and it beautifully and without overwhelming, answers the question: how could Earl Grey possibly be improved?
Earl Grey's distinguishing element is Bergamot, the citric oil whose sharp-sweet enriching flavor seems designed to cling to steam and heat itself as they rise up through a perfect hot cuppa. The simplicity of Earl Grey can be appreciated in how the Bergamot naturally matches the plain black at-home warmth of the drink. Any additional flavor, it might follow,would do well to also provide a mellowing layer rather than a bold new charge.
Vanilla, whose connotative meaning belies the potency of the bean, is both rich and gentle. Cream of Earl Grey really is, therefore, a variation and not a new category. An enrichment, if you will. A modestly sugared floral whose dried parcel is an utterly beautiful mound of cornflower blue and marigold yellow over black leaves.
Cream of Earl Grey is decadent. Cream of Earl Grey is accessible. Cream of Earl Grey is the people's tea, and an elite cup, a rarity and yet entirely expected upon tasting, a surprise that seems, when enjoyed, almost inevitable.

Teavana use to have a black tea/earl grey/vanilla tea that was amazing. Too much time has past to be 100% accurate regarding this review, but this tea is really close to that tea. It's smooth. The aroma is fantastic, more floral (but not overbearing) than the Teavana tea I remember. As you can imagine, being an intergalactic space lord it's not always easy to find what I'm looking for with so many options.
It's really one of those teas (I have 8 above my desk next to the laser cannons) I keep coming back to even though I feel like it's time to switch it up. I will absolutely be coming back to Earth for a refill.
I’m pleasantly surprised with the quality of the product, as well as my customers. Your customer service is expedient and courteous.
I typically go for Earl Grey with Lavender, but decided to switch it up this time and I'm so glad I did! The subtle hint of sweetness from the vanilla is perfect for a cup anytime! Absolutely love this tea and will always need it in my stash. Customer service is top notch with Good Life, fast shipping, and the hand written note on the receipt is a level far above others. The samples included with my order seemed hand picked based on the teas I'd ordered. An unexpected extra that is much appreciated! Thank you!
Cream of Earl Grey Loose Leaf Black Tea
I don't like Earl Grey tea. I've tried several times, but I am just not a fan of the bitter, pungent bergamot flavor. However, vanilla is one of my favorite flavors. So when a sample of this Earl Grey tea with vanilla appeared in my box of tea one day, I was intrigued, but wary. The aroma from the steeping tea had me anticipating the first sip, and I am pleased to say that I was instantly hooked. The bergamot flavor is a bit more subdued than most Earl Grey teas I have tried, and the vanilla does a great job of mellowing and balancing it. This tea is smooth and creamy, and has quickly become one of my all-time favorites.
Of course, no review would be complete without mentioning the absurdly fast shipping, the free samples, and the hand-written note thanking me for my order. Good Life Tea never ceases to impress me, and I am proud and very happy to support this local store. Thanks!
