Another Adagio sample from Cavocorax!
This one I’ve been wanting to try for awhile.
I enjoyed it more than the Jane Austen Mafia one which has similar ingredients, but this one had the bergamot, so it’s more of a flavored earl grey. I do love earl greys.
Problem is, it’s still the same mediocre black tea base, and they went way too light on the bergamot for my tastes. I REALLY love earl greys.
Overall it’s just a very lightly flavored earl grey tea. Honestly I would expect a Tardis tea to pack more of a punch! I am clearly in the minority though. But I can’t help wondering if half of the love is more for the Doctor Who association than for the actual tea. Maybe it’s just my newfound pickiness in regards to flavored teas…..getting pregnant changed how I feel about most of my old favorites too! And post-baby I have all new preferences. Or perhaps that’s just my tastebuds changing and adapting naturally on their own.
I have enough to try more, so I may add extra leaf to see if that helps up the flavor at all.
After a couple more Adagio samples from the lovely Cavo, I will be done this taste testing experiment of mine! I think I’m coming out on the right side of it too, because my conclusion is one of total “meh-ness”, which makes my wallet very happy considering I already have TTC, Butiki and Teavivre orders on my future wishlist!
Thanks again, Cavocorax. You’ve saved my bank account!!
