All About Organic Earl Grey Cream Tea
A delicious twist on the classic earl grey. This tea starts off as any earl grey: by taking high grown premium black tea leaves and mixing them with oil of bergamot to create the uniquely aromatic flavor that makes this tea so memorable.
Then it's combined with organic vanilla to bring out the delicious crisp notes while smoothing out the sometimes bitter bergamot flavor, to create a uniquely flavorful combination that you won't be able to put down.
Stress and Anxiety: According to the University College London professor Andrew Steptoe, “Drinking black tea may speed up our recovery from daily stresses in life.”
Cancer Prevention: Scientists believe that antioxidants, like the polyphenols, catechins and theaflavins in black tea, can be a strong force in preventing and perhaps reducing the development and spread of cancer.
Diarrhea: Diarrhea can be reduced by the high amounts of tannins in black tea.
Diabetes: Lab rat experiments show that black tea is beneficial in both lowering blood sugar levels and reducing diabetic cataracts.
Headaches: If you're suffering from a tension headache, the antioxidants in black tea can help relieve it faster than standard painkillers.
Weight Loss: Mice fed a black tea supplement while on a high sugar diet had less weight gain and a greater metabolism than their non-tea-drinking peers.
Oral Health: According to the American Society for Microbiology: “compounds in black tea may attack the harmful bacteria in your mouth that cause gum disease and cavities.”

I spent a while looking for a "cream" Earl Grey that didn't taste artificial, and this is it. Nice aroma, pleasant taste, and no gimmicky flavorings. This tea is now a staple at my house.
This is a very smooth, balanced tea. The flavor is not overpowering like some Earl Grey I've had.
Tried for first time today. It is very delicious. Added a cinnamon stick and a little honey. I am a happy camper!!!
A perfect tea for both the morning and afternoon. Delicious on its own or with a splash of vanilla plant milk/whole milk. I'd have a hard time going back to classic earl grey after tasting this.
This is a perfect replacement for coffee in the morning. It has a really rich flavor with a touch of vanilla and it has just enough caffeine to wake me up without making me wired.
