drank Earl Grey Moonlight by Adagio Teas
1573 tasting notes

I got this tea as part of my order during the Great Cherry Blossom Hunt O’Doom on the Adagio site.

The smell of the dry leaves was very nice – citrusy earl grey with a distinctly sweet vanilla scent. The earl grey base is clearly the same one as the earl grey bravo – ie. very strong and pungent – and I’d hoped that the added vanilla would tone it down a little bit, but that doesn’t really seem to be the case. I found that even with a short brewing time it was still too strong to be drunk without milk. The milk softened things out and allowed the vanilla to come through a bit, however, it had to fight the powerful bergamot notes to do so.

I’m rather disapointed as the end result wasn’t a creamy as I thought it would be and tasted very similar to the original Earl Grey Bravo.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
