- Most ExcellentReview by Tucker
- I have had a few Earl Grey Cream teas and many Earl Grey teas, but none as good as this. It has a nice medium to strong taste that is smooth. The Earl Grey taste is not lost amount the vanilla. It is simply a most excellent tea. I will be buying this again and again. I have a cup a day. It is great any time of day; in the afternoon with a snack, a lazy morning, and etc. I highly recommend this tea to everyone looking for a smooth, slight sweet, unique and delicious tea.

- Really DislikeReview by Bev
- Tried this tea on the basis of the positive reviews. However, I really dislike the vanilla flavour--I find it much too strong. Because I don't want to throw it out (too cheap!), I cut it in half with an Assam or other black tea and it's then drinkable. :( (Posted on 2016-01-02)

- Love this take home London FogReview by Jobecca
- After a trip to Vancouver, I stumbled upon London Fogs and fell in love. When I walked into Murchie's and found the Earl Grey Cream I found a way to bring a bit of this delight home with me. I am a couple ounces away from finishing off my pound, and feel it might be worth a trip north just to restock... shipping might be a bit cheaper, but the road trip would be worth it with this treat at the end!

- WowReview by Liz
- This tea is unbelievably creamy. I tried it first on a rainy afternoon and it made my day so much better that I couldn't help buying some for a friend. (She fell in love with it as well). Just a caution to never ever over-steep! (Posted on 2013-09-23)
- What a wonderful cuppa!Review by Jean
- Every time I drink this tea I think once again, "What a wonderful cup of tea this is!" Literally - every time I drink this tea! What a pleasurable experience that is! I alternate between this tea and another brand's Earl Grey lavender tea, and my tea life is complete. The vanilla/cream flavor is rich and warm, and complements the bergemot beautifully. I consider it a treat every time I that first sip. (Posted on 2012-11-28)

- My new favorite!Review by Betty H - Murchie's Team Member
- This amazing blend is my new favorite! The wonderful flavors of Earl Grey blended with a hint of vanilla and cream made this cup of tea a delightful surprise! While my goal as a new Murchie's team member is to taste a new tea every day, some of this will find it's way home with me for my weekend enjoyment! (Posted on 2012-06-14)
- Better than any London Fog ever madeReview by NorthVanMumof2
- I've drank both Earl Grey & Lady Grey tea for years. I like the components of London Fogs but together, I just don't like it. Finally tried this tea & its so delicious! In my opinion, this is what a London Fog is supoosed to be but never is. Warm, creamy, subtle citrus flavour inside a traditional tea profile. (Posted on 2012-01-27)

Flavour Profile Guide
Tea and coffee tasting is a very individual, multi-dimensional experience: one person’s perfect cup can be too strong or weak, too brisk or watery for the next person. At Murchie’s, we believe that the best tea or coffee is the one that YOU like the best! We use the following flavour profile guides to help compare our teas and coffees within a relative scale.
Tea Strength RatingsThis rating method indicates the strength of flavour each tea has when brewed according to our brewing guide.
|Light/Delicate: Very light in colour and delicate in flavour|
|Medium: Medium-light cup with slightly fuller cup|
|Medium-Strong: Medium-dark cup, medium body, and full flavour without harshness|
|Strong: Full body, rich cup, takes milk well|
|Very Strong: Rich, dark cup with very full, strong flavour and briskness|
Coffee RatingsWe rate the flavour properties of our coffees along two dimensions: roast and body.
Roast is simply a result of how long and how hot the beans have been roasted, which can be seen in the colour of the finished bean, and typically results in general flavour traits:
|Light Roast||More acidity, brightness and a slight pucker|
|Medium Roast||Slightly richer flavours, some acidity, enhanced creaminess|
|Dark Roast||Distinctive roasted flavour, sometimes notes of toasted sugar or charcoal|
Body is the term used to describe how the brewed coffee feels in your mouth:
|Light Body||Easy to drink with little lingering flavour, ‘thin’ or ‘clean’ feeling on the palate|
|Medium Body||Heavier, creamier mouth-feel with more lingering flavour|
|Full Body||Rich, full-mouth feeling: hits all of the palate and lingers|
Tea Brewing Guide
Different types of teas should be brewed according to certain times and water temperatures to bring out their best flavours. Use this guide as a starting point, and then experiment until you find the perfect brewing method for your favourite tea.
Based on approximately one level teaspoon (2.5g) of loose tea or one tea bag per 6-8 ounce (180-240ml) cup. For stronger flavour, add more tea. Brewing for longer may increase the strength of the tea, but will likely also cause bitterness.
Brew times shown in minutes.
Coffee Brewing Guide
The simplest methods for brewing coffee are drip coffee, pour over and French press. These guidelines are a starting point; modify the ratio of coffee to water, the grind, and brewing time to your taste. If your coffee is not strong enough, increase the proportion of coffee per cup of water, grind the beans finer, or allow them to brew longer – or any combination of these factors. If your coffee is too strong, simply do the opposite.
Drip coffee or pour over method: hot water is gradually poured over coffee grounds and slowly drips through
• Fine to medium grind coffee
• 1.5 to 2.5 tablespoons of coffee per cup of water
• 1 to 1.5 tablespoons of coffee per cup (e.g. 4-6 tbsp for a 4-cup French press)
• Pour about 1/3 of the water over the coffee grinds; wait about 30 seconds and then pour in the rest
• Wait 4-5 minutes, then push down the plunger to separate the grounds from finished coffee, and enjoy!
