Oooooh vanilla! When I opened the sample packet the smell was a mix of citrusy and a creamy-sweet smell that made me think of melted ice cream and creamy caramel – can I eat these leaves? ;)

The taste is nice, the bergamot sort of pushing the cream out of the way to take center stage. It’s isn’t too pungent, which is a problem with Adagio’s Earl Grey Bravo, and it has a clean citrusy flavour with a touch of spiciness. On its heels follows the cream flavour which is a bit muted but it gives a sweet, vanilla accent to the tea.

*nods * I’m looking forward to experimenting with this one. I was a bit annoyed that SpecialTea’s sample packets aren’t resealable, though.

Bethany

Yeah, I stole a bunch of binder clips from work and used them to reseal, haha.

Jillian

That’s pretty much what I ended up doing too.

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!)
