Earl Grey No Bake Pots de Creme

Last Updated on June 5, 2023 by Leah Hall

A tea twist on the classic pot de creme! This no bake pot de creme is a delicious dessert!


Traditional Pots de Creme are baked, with a more custard like consistency. We have made no bake chocolate Pots de Creme, but wanted to try something with a new flavor profile. Earl Grey tea is a very distinctive flavor, and we felt it would lend a richness to a custard like pudding for this tea dessert. So we wanted to try a tea version of a no bake pot de creme.

Earl Grey Pot de Creme

Like the English take their “cuppa” with cream and sugar, the combination of the Earl Grey and cream and sugar makes a fantastic dessert. If you want to try tea in cocktail form, we advise you try our Earl Grey Manhattan!

Pots de Creme

  • 6 egg yolks, whipped
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoon Earl Grey simple syrup

Earl Grey Simple Syrup

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Earl Grey teabags


For the Pot de Creme:

Whip the egg yolks in a medium heat proof bowl. Set aside.

In a saucepan over medium low heat, combine the half and half, cream, sugar, salt and Earl Grey Syrup. Heat, stirring often, until it almost comes to a simmer.

Slowly pour the cream mixture into the bowl with the egg yolks, whipping constantly to combine.

Return to saucepan, and over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens and coats the stirring spoon (about 8 minutes). Turn off heat.

Pour the custard into serving containers. Refrigerate until set, about 2-3 hours. Serve chilled, topped with whipped cream if desired.

For the Earl Grey Syrup:

Combine sugar and water in saucepan, stir until sugar dissolves over low heat. Heat to boiling, drop in teabags.

Turn off heat, let teabags steep for 3 minutes. Remove teabags, let syrup cool.
