Organic Cream of Earl Grey by DavidsTea
Black Tea / Flavoured
$6.75 for 50g
I bought Organic Cream of Earl Grey from DavidsTea in their prepackaged ‘rainbow’ tin ($15 for 80g, or 3 tins for $30). It’s a sturdy metal tin, the tea inside comes into a sealed plastic bag that can be resealed. Taking in a sniff of the tea, I can make out the bergamot oil – a very nice citrus smell, and the smell of vanilla. The ingredients listed are: black tea, cornflowers, marigolds, with “natural flavouring”. The flower petals are very obvious and easy to tell in the loose tea. It smells delicious.
DavidsTea claims that “Lovers of Earl Grey adore this creamy alternative to the original blend. We’ve added a touch of vanilla for an unexpectedly rich taste.” – bold claims when I adore Earl Grey.
Things I liked about the packaging – the loose tea comes in a resealable bag and the lid fits on well. I’ve had this tin for a while, and it tastes the same now as it does when I first tired it a few months ago. With the bag and the tin, it helps keep the tea protected from air and light – I appreciate when tea comes in storage that works! The tea looks great and the smell is lovely. The scent of bergamot and vanilla is very inviting. Continue reading “DavidsTea’s Organic Cream of Earl Grey”
