drank Clotted Cream by Adagio Teas
314 tasting notes

This is one of the blends I made for myself on Adagio Teas.

While studying abroad in England at 19, I was introduced to this wonderful, rich treat called Devonshire Clotted Cream. I would make the time to steal away for “Cream Tea” and have Earl Grey with clotted cream on scones with jam—it was heavenly.

There’s definitely nothing like clotted cream here in the States, so whenever I have it, it brings back so many good memories of that time in England. It was my first taste of real independence—abroad and on my own! So I made a tea to commemorate that feeling.

I’m happy to say it came out really well. It’s just a simple blend of mostly cream and vanilla, but it’s very comforting and smells so rich and cozy. It has a malty, almost toasty scent and the vanilla is subtle but delicious.

I had a tough day at work, but I’m slowly winding down with this tea and I almost feel like myself again.

This sounds really good, but it also sounds like a tea I’d drink out of tiny espresso cups as it also sounds like it’d be sickeningly sweet in large quantities.

It’s more creamy than sweet. And the black tea base adds some bitterness to even it out.

I love a good proper British cream tea. Why are the scones in the USA the size and density of boulders? That sounds like a good tea and I may be compelled to buy it.

Do you add some cream to make it creamier or is it okay just as is?

My ratings are purely subjective and each note varies according to my perception and mood at the moment. So, with that said, my rating scale can be deciphered as follows:
90-100: I am in love! A must have at all times! :D
80-89: This is good. It is full-tin worthy! :))
79-70: This is okay. Glad I tried it. Might get more. :)
69-60: Meh. I’m indifferent. Neither here nor there, this is Tea Purgatory. :/
59-under: Mediocre and Sad. Really not good enough to try again. A disappointment. :(

My Misc. Personal Favorites List (because I love making lists!):
Books = The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, Beauty by Sherri S. Tepper, The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, Personal Darkness by Tanith Lee.
Movies = E.T., The Princess Bride, Babette’s Feast, Enchanted April, The Age of Innocence, Death Becomes Her, GATTACA, Fight Club, The Matrix, The Others, Pride and Prejudice (2005 version), Nacho Libre :).
TV Shows = The Twilight Zone (a classic!), Star Trek TNG, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I miss this!), Mad Men, Sherlock, Being Human.
Music? = I find myself perennially stuck in an 80’s-90’s New Wave & Alternative time warp. ;)
