drank Cream by Adagio Teas

This tea was good. I was looking for an alternative to Teavana Earl Greg Creme without the bergamot taste. This one came close but as I sipped it I felt it was lacking something. I guess the Earl Greg Creme was a perfect mix! The base in this tea tasted flat. Will finish my sample pack but might not reorder.

Adagio’s flavored black teas always seem to go flat for me too. I think their straight teas / classic scented (jasmine, etc) are better.

Did I just get a bad batch? I first tried this tea as a sample and brewed it for 3 mins. I took one sip and got a mouthful of citrus bergamot! Way too intense. I had to pour it out. I then came back to steepster and went to adagio website to check reviews and no one else had the same experience. So I tried another cup. Same experience. A mouthful of bergamot and lingering after taste. Ugh!

I had good luck by blending this tea. I blended it most successfully with vanilla black tea. I do agree with you – this tea has so much bergamot that it tastes like perfume to me.

I LOVE Adagio’s Earl Grey Bravo. I didn’t like Moonlight. So whatever that says… :)

Kind of like cranberry juice without the sugar added. Good for someone who likes fruit or herbal teas.

Didn’t taste any chocolate or truffle. Only the berry flavor came through.

Definitely fruity. Reminds me of teavana chocolate banana foster but fruity instead. for some reason I feel all teavana teas like this taste like sweet water after several sips. Maybe its just me?

It’s good to find that out when it’s free, rather than buying it. That’s one of the best things about swapping.

Wow! Great tasting oolong with a creamy taste. Such a nice blend! One of my favorites. Will have to stock this.

This was good for a fruity tea. Mango was not too overpowering. Just right. I recommend it to herbal tea lovers.

Light and tropical. I deteced apricot or peach. Very smooth. Faint vegetal taste.

I was a bit skeptical about this tea at first. The mix of Tea and coffee sounded weird. But I have to say this was quite nice! It tasty roasty with a good mix of cream and sugar. Definitely a must try for coffee drinkers.

I would buy this again.

I didn’t really taste the apricot in this one. It just tasted earthy to me.

I’m very new to tea. I received two types of Teavana tea for Christmas – Jasmine Oolong and English Breakfast. The Oolong was so tasty it got me hooked on this new tea tasting adventure. I have not found any tea I like better than it yet.

I’m now in the process of buying samples from various stores online to find other blends I like.

So far these are my favorite teas:

- Teavana Jasmine Oolong

- Teavana Earl Grey Creme

- Harney & Sons Wedding Tea (caramel and lemon)

- Harney & Sons Indian Nimbu (vanilla and lemon)

- Harney & Sons Wenshan Baozhong (tastes like warm bread)
