This smells quite nice – like an early grey but with a creamy, dessert-like scent to it. Taste-wise there’s a bit of the sweet, vanilla-cream at the start of each sip…but it quickly gets jumped on and smothered by the Earl Grey Bravo which then proceeds to do a victory dance on my tongue. Maybe if I steep it a bit less like I do a cup of straight Earl Grey Bravo it won’t be as pungent.
Another sample polished off, this one from TeaEqualsBliss. I’m taking it with milk and a touch of honey and it really does have sort of a London Fog-ish quality to it. The vanilla and the cream sweeten it pleasently and balance out that strong-flavoured earl grey that Adagio blends.
This tastes a great deal better with a shorter steep – and I also used a bit less dry tea aswell. It’s certainly tasting creamier, sweeter, and smoother and I bet I could make an awesome London Fog out of this – I’d only need to add the steamed milk. I’ve decided to up the rating a little bit, too.
