Show Description

An exquisite Earl Grey character mellowed with soft hints of cream. If you are fan of Earl Grey and have not tried tried this, you are in for a treat. Cream Earl Grey has a taste that is smooth with vanilla overtones, which stand out above the premium bergamot flavor - the signature taste of Earl Grey.

Extra Info:

Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva are three of the high-growing districts in Sri Lanka. These regions produce flavorful teas that have the classic "Ceylon" tea character which is noted with a floral bouquet and flavor, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery color and - most importantly - perfect for use as the base tea for flavoring.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.

Other Brewing Options:

Make a "London Fog" without a milk steamer:
1) Use 1.5 teaspoons of Cream Earl Grey and steep for 5 minutes.
2) While the tea is steeping take heavy cream, add in some vanilla extract, sugar, and a touch of boiling water. Shake the cream vigorously (to simulate the steaming process)
3). When the tea is ready, pour the cream mixture in. You even get a nice layer of froth on top!

Ingredients:

Blend of black teas (Orange Pekoe), cornflower petals, and natural flavors,

Origin:

Sri Lanka (Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula, Uva)

The teas sold by NM Tea Co. are almost uniformly better than you can find elsewhere, but this particular tea is beyond enchanting. Drunk hot with a bit of cream, it's smooth vanilla sweetness is almost unbelievably gratifying. I've restrained myself to only drinking four cups a day. Running low on my first stash I was ready to tear my hair out (or at least get an Albuquerqueian friend to mail me more) until I realized they ship, for free! Seriously; this might not be the most complex or nuanced tea you've ever had, but it might be the most delicious. You *must* try some.

I'm not a big black tea drinker, but do, on occasion, enjoy Earl Grey, so I got this today thinking it would just be something I'd want very occasionally. But wow, this is amazing tea! I followed the recipe for a London Fog steamer, and it is so delicious, I can see myself drinking this regularly! I also tried it without milk or sweetener, and I might even prefer it that way! Without milk and sugar the florals are lovely and delicate, not overwhelming, but they are strong enough to stand up to milk too. If you're an Earl Grey lover, you will really like this, but even if you only occasionally drink black tea, it's worth trying, because this is phenomenally good!

But it's the one I drink the most! It's perfect for any time of day, evening, night, hot, cold... I mean, drink it hot or cold. It is rare for a cup to be left over, but when it is, I put it in the fridge and have "iced" tea the next day.

I keep returning to this over and over. Good with our without milk. It makes waking up in the morning more fun.

Smooth and drinkable. I have been looking high and low for a creamy EG and NOW I have found the perfect cuppa. Added a splash of milk and the creaminess came through. Very good value for a very fine Ceylon.

Out of every tea I've tried this is my favorite! Cream and sugar and it's like a dessert! It's also hard to over steep, allowing you to leave it in longer and not ruin your tea. 10/10 would recommend everyone try.

I enjoy preparing and tasting a variety of teas. At one point, I really didn't care for Earl Grey, and now Cream Earl Grey is my favorite. It's smooth and delicious as is; no additions required.

Several years ago I switched from drinking coffee to enjoying black teas in the morning. I have tried many different varieties and Cream Earl Grey is my absolute favorite choice. Compared to regular Earl Grey, Cream EG is much smoother, with less punch. It is an excellent morning tea.

We love, love, love this tea. We were introduced to the Cream Earl Grey by some friends who live in Albuquerque and now my 16 year old son makes sure we are never without it. A wonderful breakfast tea, and lovely as an afternoon tea with steamed milk. Highly recommended.

This tea was great, I bought it for myself because I am a big Earl Grey drinker, the cream part of this tea is very good and smooths the overall flavor out, if you like earl grey, try this.

A wonderful morning or afternoon black tea with a very creamy, smooth finish. I sometimes add cream to my black teas but this one does not need any.

This is an excellent earl grey. I have shared this with 4 friends and all of them had to purchase some for themselves because of how excellent it is.

Light bergamot flavor. Would prefer it to be a little stronger, but still a beautiful EGC. The cream does not taste artificial, as so many can, and I find that I reach for this one more frequently than any other breakfast tea.

The Earl grey is good, but it could do with more bergamot flavor, and less of the sweet, 'creme' flavor.

This is by far my most favorite tea ever! The creaminess and balance always have my coming back for more. Many Earl Grey teas are very harsh and acidic, but this one is perfectly smooth. Love It!!

This Earl Grey lends a creamy flavor to the taste that makes it better than the classic Earl Grey in my opinion. I make a London Fog of it, and have it with pecan shortbread cookies and it's just the perfect tea for that.

Our absolute favorite of NM Tea Co.'s offerings! Rich, smooth & delightful. The cream perfectly alances the bergamot, and neither overwhelms the tea base. Love it - the cognac of tea!

I tried this on a whim and it has become my favorite tea. I drink it hot or cold, morning or evening, to wake me up or put me to bed. I even ordered the 16 oz. and started distributing little packets to friends and family who are big tea drinkers. It has always gotten a great response.

NM Tea Company-- please don't ever change your perfect Early Grey Creme tea! I was once a Teavana devotee, but in addition to lowering the general quality of their products lately in general, they changed their EGC formula, specifically, and absolutely RUINED the flavor. I found yours online after trying several others with disappointing results and I am SO grateful. Smooth, slightly sweet, and you aren't messing with the flowers. Hooray for you for putting product quality above senseless innovation!
