Goodness, I DO NOT like earl grey, but I love this tea! Adagio does a great job with creating an alternative option for the standard earl grey. The undertone of creaminess eases the typical bite from the “bergamot.”

With all the not so great reviews here I was a little insecure to post a positive one ;) I really like this tea. Wish it were creamier. I noticed that it can be over brewed easily-maybe that’s with all Earl Greys. It turns bitter easily 3 minutes-max (for me)
Great aroma. I know Argo tea sells a drink with Earl Grey Vanilla with sugar and (soy) milk, so I tried my version at home using Adagio’s blend. works fine (plus hell of a lot cheaper)
Meh. this tea was not what i was expecting. i got a strong ‘orange/butterscotch’ smell n the nose, instead of vanilla. Also, the bergamot seemed to make this tea bitter. On the back of my tongue, I tasted a strong bitter aspect after taking a sip. I didn’t oversteep the tea, so it must be the bergamot. Bergamot is a very strong flavor in most earl greys, which is why I am not a huge fan of them. I think this tea could be perfected by adding more of a ratio of vanilla/cream in the tea. I did not taste much vanilla or cream in my tea, which is what I was expecting.
NO. Just no.
I love Earl Grey Bravo and I drink at least one cup of it every day. I love the strong citrus/bergamot scent and I love the flavor. I also like vanilla, so thought this might be worth a sample. Nope. The smell is very strong (which I like with EGB) and the vanilla/citrus combination just doesn’t work for me at all.
Plus, it tasted over-steeped even when following the recommended directions.
May be great for other people, but this was not the one for me.
I think I like this tea better than Earl Grey. takes sip I take that back; I definitely like this tea better than Earl Grey. The vanilla flavor adds complexity and is soft on the tastebuds. With a pinch of sugar and a splash of almond milk, I can see this poor little 3 oz. bag disappearing before my eyes. It is definitely a bit of a dessert tea and smells like a lemon pastry. I’m not sure which pastry to peg it on, but let’s say a soft, moist, lemon cupcake with vanilla frosting. Yeah, I think that description does it!
