I was excited to try this after the success I had with (the now sadly gone) Earl Grey Oolong, but Countess of Seville just never quite made it to the same levels of delicious. It’s not a bad tea – the bergamot and orange peel are balanced enough that they don’t overwhelm each other or the green base, and as long as you watch your temperatures, it doesn’t get bitter. But I think I might actually like Adagio’s Early Grey Green better. I can’t quite put my finger on why.

I’ve just recently discovered the world of loose tea and am really enjoying myself. I’m still in SAMPLE EVERYTHING mode, and likely always will be.

I love green teas, chai, and citrus flavors. I don’t mind hibiscus. I will drink a bitter green tea, but won’t drink bitter black tea. I’m working on figuring out which black teas work for me.

I tend to drink my tea without milk or sugar.

I’m using Steepster’s Cupboard function to actually reflect my current tea stock, otherwise I’d never be able to remember what I already have.
