I’m out of this now. And I’m okay with that.

Ahhh…finishing teas I don’t like. It feels good, doesn’t it?

And it’s so hard to do, too! Which probably adds to the feeling of accomplishment. Yay!

Earl Grey Bravo, nice to taste it again. I had a cup of this the day before yesterday at a friend’s house. I haven’t had it in a very long time. Maybe around a year or two.

Anyway, it was just how I remembered it. Strong bergamot, lemony zest, and a decent amount of caffeine. The black tea itself could be a little stronger. It reminds me that I should try more Earl greys. Also, I’m inspired to make some of my own one day. I’m already growing my own tea… I could grow the bergamot easily, too.

This is the best Earl Grey I’ve ever had. The bergamot isn’t too strong like in a lot I’ve tried. I served it on my balcony to a few friends and they drank every last bit of it.

Earthy flavor that lasts along time. A very plain, clean black tea…no fruity or sweet overtones.

I’ve taken to brewing this tea in Gong Fu style, using a very hot water and leaving the leaves in contact with the water only for 15-30 seconds. This method keeps the tea from becoming seriously over brewed and bitter, which happens VERY FAST with this tea. Latest batch is a bit light on the bergamot.

Preparation
Boiling 0 min, 15 sec

Good idea! This is how I tend to brew Yunnan teas – they are so strong they make me feel like I am going to rocket out of the stratosphere! They taste sweet and full of caramel when brewed Gong Fu style.

I think I’ve finally perfected this tea. I kept getting bitterness but I’ve overcome that issue with the following: 1 Tsp leaves to 12 oz hot water @ 200 F for 30 seconds. basically, when you’re done pouring and have put the kettle back, its done steeping. I get the nice bergamot aftertaste without the bitterness.

Check out the steep time…yah, forgot about this one. It actually cooled off while steeping. Decided to give it a shot anyway…no pun intended, but my coworker asked me if I was doing “shots” when he saw me take a drink . Wow! I’ll hand it to Adagio though; even though the tea was waaayyyyy over strong, the flavor of their Earl Grey came through loud and clear. I ended up diluting it 50/50 with fresh boiling water and brought it back to something approaching only mildly oversteeped…a testament to good tea, I believe.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
