drank Earl Grey Lavender by Adagio Teas
477 tasting notes

I had been saving this tea for a day off, and I’m excited to try it. First of all, I didn’t realize this was going to be an Earl Grey cream. But I knew after one sniff. It’s like they toned down the vanilla from their Earl Grey Moonlight. I was sort of expecting something like Revolution’s Earl Grey, but this seems promising, too.

Upon closer look of the leaf, I realized that this is a rather extravagant tea as far as Adagio’s flavored blends go. I see lots of pretty lavender buds with wispy blue cornflowers. It’s beautiful and promises to be more complex than what I’ve been sipping lately.

It brews up dark and the scent is mostly lemon and lavender. The flavor is just as complex as I had been hoping for. Lavender, bergamot, vanilla, Ceylon, lemon. It’s a refined harmony of “clean” flavors and strong enough to be bracing on a cold morning. I think I’ve found a new favorite.

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, golden monkey, chai, and keemun. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, cucumber, sage, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
