The added orange flavoring does not do this tea any favors, it comes out like Constant Comment, just a brashly flavored orange tea. I like the presentation with the flowers, but this isn’t as subtle as Earl Grey should be, and I don’t taste or smell the supposed addition of vanilla to the mix. It’s also odd that Adagio says that bergamot is harsh, because in a good Earl Grey, the bergamot is a subtle, smooth thing, but in Adagio’s Earl Grey it is very harsh. I’m sorry I ordered ounces of it instead of just the sample.
