19 Tasting Notes
I buy this once in a while as a treat, it’s a little spendy, but unique as a blend, and I love it for night time drinking. It has the tartness of hibiscus and the bright red hue for prosperity. It’s also sweet and without any caffeine it’s a calming cup for me in the evening.
Creamy, balanced between the fragrant bergamot and the creamy vanilla. I like the big, bold leaf of this tea. The tea’s strong enough, too, to offset any of the dreaded “creamsicle” portential here, it’s still definitely tea. It’s amazing with milk, and I actually didn’t taste any nut influences.
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.
