This is a tasty blend!
Nicely lemony, a bit creamy. The flavors are bright & tangy, just like River Song herself!

I could describe this tea, but that would be spoilers.
Inspired by BBC’s Doctor Who, which I am in no way affiliated with. This is created purely for my own enjoyment.

River Song, you suck. Blergamot! yuck. I figured i would start with the teas in my pack that i knew i would be less enthusiastic about, but still hopeful. This is blergamot.
I’m cheating and removing this from my cupboard because i know i won’t drink the rest of it. Instead i’ll parcel it out to share with swap friends who want to try it or (looking at cavocorax), want more :)
also in terms of flavour…this really just tastes like an EG to me..that’s maybe just a little creamier? maybe?
Okay so this is pretty good too. I noticed these Adagio teas have a certain… je ne sais quoi… smoothness or mellowness. I like it. I still like the TARDIS blend better. (I still dream of that blackberry mouthfeel.)
This is nice and creamy and enjoyable. My only complaint is that I would expect more attitude/zing from River.
Yum, this is pretty great! Thanks cavocorax! Although, agreed: would expect something not so mellow from River :DDD (She’s so totally my fave, can’t help it.)
Anyway, before I read the spoilers! I thought it was citrusy-caramel, and wasn’t far off – coconutty citrus, I guess? It’s a good mix.
Cara captures yet another character perfectly. Smooth, yet exciting. A promise of adventure, whether you like it or not.
The creamy earl grey moonlight is perfectly complemented by coconut. The rooibos barely comes out, but the lemon is there very lightly. All in all a great tea. I think my brewing on it could do with some tweaking.
This tea is an enigma. Without milk or sugar, it is sharply citrusy and faintly bittersweet. With milk and a bit of sugar it is rich and sweet, like lemon meringue pie. The perfect tea to drink while relaxing after a day of space archaeology, or while adding your latest adventure to your diary.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Citrus, Cream, Lemon, Sugar, Vanilla
I’m enjoying my DW teas today As i eagerly await the new Who. This tea is mostly Earl Grey which is fine but I’m not sensing much of the lovely River Song’s personality. I taste some creaminess but mostly an EG. This is lacking her spicy flare and naughtiness. Dare I put some peppercorns in the basket next time?
Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Rooibos
Method: 1.5 tsp, 8 oz, 205 degrees, 5 minutes, Forlife brew in mug steeper, Dr. Who mug (duh)
Dry Leaf Aroma: Smells like earl grey
Brewing Aroma: Bergamot and cream
Flavor: Maybe I just don’t like bergamot in tea anymore. The bergamot is certainly present, but very mild. I expected to like this MORE than regular earl greys, but I just found the bergamot to be off-putting.
I also made this as a cold brew, and liked it much better.
As a tea, a person who likes earl greys should appreciate this one. I didn’t find it to be very River Song-ish. A fandom blend for the notorious River Song should be spicy, IMO!
