This tea is visually interesting. The leaves between 1/16 and 1/8 inch long with the blue slivers of cornflower petals blended in is actually quite pretty. This tea brews a nice yellow-orange liquor.
The aroma from the dried leaves is of a smoother variety than that of a typical Earl Grey. It's almost as if this blend had already been softened with milk and sugar.
Earl Grey de la Creme's flavor is smooth but strong. You can taste the softness from the vanilla and the sweetness from the cornflower petals. Of, course the bergamot oil is ever present throughout as is custom with any Earl Grey.
