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.
I like this one, and I generally dislike Adagio blacks. This one has backbone but isn’t bitter. The bergamot is there, but is softened by the cream. I don’t really get vanilla from it. There’s a hint of lemon and orange. It’s fairly smooth, and doesn’t have that kind of prickly feel/taste that bergamot sometimes has for me. It has the nice clean mouthfeel that Earl Greys in general have for me. All in all, nice and solid for everyday drinking.
Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Lemon, Orange
Adagio has been disappointing me lately. They dont add enough flavor to the flavored blends! For example Earl Grey Moonlight- the black tea totally overpowers the vanilla/cream component. Their black tea is STRONG and bitter and bold. And the vanilla/cream just gets lost! Adagio has great prices and I love the ability to make your own custom blends, but their flavor is just lacking. They need to add more flavoring to these because it just gets lost.
The tea leaves smell amazing both dry and wet: like a frosted cake in a cup. I was disappointed by the taste, though: I find the vanilla overpowers the bergamot/citrus to the point that this cup tastes more like dessert than like an afternoon tea. The black tea base comes through nice and strong, however, just as in Adagio’s Earl Grey Bravo.
Would recommend for a dessert treat with milk and sugar, perhaps. But it disappoints as a standalone drink.
Flavors: Bergamot, Cake, Citrus, Lemon, Orange, Vanilla
Good enough to warrant deciding that my initial love-hate affair is over with it. I have to admit I like this stuff every so often. I hate bergamot, but it plays nicely in this creamy, moody tea. It’s not a grab-and-chug tea (not for lack of trying). It’s sort of like having an audience with the Queen- you don’t just go up, say hey how’s it going, I like you (or not) and then walk away. This one commands respect and packs the rich flavor to go with it. So go have this audience with this softly-commanding, slightly romantic, delicious strange creature. It’s worth it!
Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Creamy, Earl Grey, Floral, Smooth
I was really excited to try this tea. Many people said how great of an earl grey it was. I have nothing against flavored teas as a general rule. At first it smelled kind of nice when I opened the bag. Creamy vanilla with a hint of citrus, okay.
But then I brewed it and tasted it, oh Lord. It was sickly, the “cream” tasted like some kind of sickly sweet chemical. I opened up my bag of Cream black tea to smell it and had the same experience. It made me nauseous. Sweetening it didn’t help to mask anything, nor did adding milk.
