Please note that while we were sent free samples of this tea to review we are just as critical of free tea. If we receive something we don’t like we give an honest review or skip it all together!

For all of you who have read our reviews before, you know that we are big earl grey fans! Real big fans. So, of course, I was excited to try the creamy earl grey tea from Tenota. I thought it was great! I could taste the bergamot , the strong black tea and a sweet nutty flavor. Yes! The added vanilla and cream make the body of this tea soft and silky, making it seem more decadent, like a dessert. I found it fun to drink and it reminded me a lot of Stash Vanilla Nut Crème decaf. What makes this tea stand out though, is instead of vanilla, it has bergamot. Love . And it has caffeine and honselty, sometimes you just need caffeine. Most times actually. If you are planning to send a little tea note this tea is a great choice because it has a little bit of a guilty pleasure feel to it, without the guilty.

Taste: 4.5 of 5 leaves – Quite a good cuppa!

Tenota Creamy Earl Grey

Temperature: @ 210 degrees
Steeped: 4 minutes
Served: With milk & honey

As Abby said, yes, earl grey tea is one of our favorites. So, while I found this tea to be tasty I didn’t give it a higher rating because I didn’t find it to be very strong. The tea had nice creamy & bergamot flavors but to me was overall a bit mild. I prefer a stronger black tea flavor so it really stands up to adding milk & sugar or honey. If your expectations are for it to be a milder tea, like the vanilla nut creme that Abby mentioned, then I think you will very much enjoy this tea! And, if you send a tenota the recipient will of course also enjoy the oversize tea tag with your note!

Taste: 3.5 of 5 leaves – A decent tasty tea.
Steepability: 5 of 5 leaves – This tea is easy to make
