I thought this tea was ok. I ordered it accidently instead of a normal earl grey. oops. It was okay but I actually liked the roobois blend I had better. Next time I will order the right earl grey.

The blue color in this tea before brewing fascinates me. It is very pretty to look at. This tea is a full bodied tea with a smooth sweet flavor. It was the first tea I bought after I was pulled into the tea world by a good friend and it only confirmed my believe that I was hooked.
This tea is my idea of heaven. I discovered it at a local tea room in Delray called Shaffer’s and it’s now the only thing I drink whenever I go there. Apart from the lovely moniker, the taste and aroma are spellbinding to an Earl Grey lover. Even the blue hue of some of the flowers in this loose tea is breathtaking. I could seriously compose a sonnet to this tea.
Did I just get a bad batch? I first tried this tea as a sample and brewed it for 3 mins. I took one sip and got a mouthful of citrus bergamot! Way too intense. I had to pour it out. I then came back to steepster and went to adagio website to check reviews and no one else had the same experience. So I tried another cup. Same experience. A mouthful of bergamot and lingering after taste. Ugh!
I’m not the biggest vanilla fan so I was skeptical of having this tea. I got a sample and now I’m sad that I’m running low! This tea is very similar to the Earl Grey Bravo but has a touch of vanilla and bit of a smooth cream flavor.
Flavors: Cream, Vanilla
Aroma: Bergamot, malt, citrus, cream
Liquor Color: Reddish amber
Liquor Flavor: Bergamot, lingering cream notes, crisp citrus. Slightly grainy in texture.
Notes: I’m fairly new to earl grey, a friend brought this over to a tea tasting party that I held and I liked this one. It’s really good with a splash of cream and sugar. The base black tea I noticed wasn’t very smooth, but the flavors of this tea make up for it. No flavor was too overwhelming, and I enjoyed the lingering creamy vanilla finish. Not too strong, this tea is perfect for a cold day.
The Earl gray i have tried in the past has been from tea bags and have never liked them much. A friend gave me a sample of this is not as overpowering as a full Earl Grey, the smell when you open the bag is divined, it has a light fruity sub taste. I plan on keeping this one in my cupboard

I’ve been really into earl grey creams lately, so I figured since this was in the box, I would give it a whirl. It’s not bad, but it doesn’t rank up there with the Argo Earl Grey Creme, which is my current favorite, though I do have some of the Zen’s version on the way to me which has been touted as the best. We’ll see. Not bad, just not memorable.
