You will need:

3.5 cups whole milk
3/4 cups sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 egg yolks
4 bags Earl Grey tea

To get a good Earl Grey flavor I started by heating 2 cups of the milk until bubbles started forming around the edge of my saucepan.  Put in your tea bags and allow to steep for 15-20 minutes.  Measure out your other ingredients while you are waiting. (I added the rest of my milk to this after the 20 minutes was over).

Sift the cornstarch, sugar and salt into a large saucepan and add all of your milk.  Whisk this together until everything is dissolved.  Turn on your burner to a medium heat and stir continuously.  Add in vanilla, and then add egg yolks one at a time until they are all incorporated. Continue cooking over medium, to medium high heat while stirring until your pudding thickens (this happens very suddenly so don't walk away).  Remove from heat and continue whisking another 30-60 seconds.  our finished pudding into any serving dish you like; I picked some white coffee cups with matching saucers, but any cup or bowl will do.  If you were to make this for a large group, it would be adorable in little espresso cups.

*Note:  this makes a rather huge amount of pudding, the original recipe I doctored up to make this said it was 4-6 servings.  I like me some pudding, in a nice sized serving and I would argue it makes closer to 8.

Oh my goodness, this sounds sooooooo good. Have to order my fave tea from an Etsy seller first, then I'll give it a shot!

This sounds delicious! I love the bergamont in Earl Grey and I bet this pudding is fantastic. I'm definitely going to give this a try this week.

It is super yummy, great for a party.  It's so cute when put into little espresso cups with a little whipped cream also.

Earl Grey being our top nr 1 choice of tea, this is worth a shot.
Would you eat it hot of cold?
It certainly looks fantastic.
