When Teavana closed shop I searched for a replacement for Earl Grey Creme in vain! Now I have it in Good Life's Florence tea. At first, I didn't like it because of the bitter black taste so common in teas of this ilk, but I have the answer now, for me anyway. I steep it for 2:40 minutes, which is much less than the recommended 3-5 minutes. Doing so eliminates the bitter black, & I find leaves the wonderful taste intact. Can't wait to try it for GL's Earl Grey Creme equivalent!
I drink this tea almost every morning before my college classes and it really just makes my day better. The smell when steeping is lovely and the taste is bold yet sweet. This was the first black tea I've ever tried and I've been drinking it ever since. Also, the service I get is always very good.
2 Nd time ordering this tea... love the new bags.
