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 and 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.

This Cream of Earl Grey is absolutely the best tasting and smoothest of any Earl Grey I have ever had. I also love the little notes in every bag of tea I receive and I leave them with the tea until I have to order again…daily inspiration reminder with my daily deliciousness. Thank you 🤗
Thanks for your 5 star review, Terry! Those notes are called 'Words of Wisdom' which was an idea generated by the original owner of Good Life Tea, Rob O'Brien. He always wanted people to spend a bit of time while they were sipping their tea to 'Relax, Refresh and Rejuvenate' and to ponder some of life's mysteries. The green slips were meant to stimulate that activity. Sip on~ Susan
Such a delightful and delicious tea and it is the best Earl Grey tea I have ever drank! My daughters and I often enjoy a pot together and it is always such an enjoyable experience. Delicious with a hint of sugar, or sugar and cream. This tea is has a permanent spot on our order list and it has become a family favorite. Our list of "favorite teas" from Good Life Tea continues to grow!
Debbra, you and the rest of your Stottlemyer clan, are among our very favorite customers and we certainly thank you for your kind words. We very much appreciate providing your family Good Life teas and contributing to your experiences while sipping them.
I love earl gray, so I was very excited to try this one. It lives up to its name of having a rich, creamy flavor, with some vanilla (to my tastebuds), so the tea is sweeter than a usual earl gray. However, you can still taste the earl gray base underneath, which makes the tea bold. I would always be hit with the cream flavor first, then the earl gray came next, which made for a very delightful drinking experience. Never too sweet or strong; I found it perfectly balanced. I can't stop drinking it!
Thank you for conveying your observations of Cream of Earl Grey. It certainly is a fan favorite and you join many, many of our customers in describing their feelings about it.
