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.

I really dislike “creme” Earl Greys. I think you’ll like Earl Grey Bravo better!

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.

Received this tea from Adagio a few days ago and have enjoyed a couple brilliant cups of it. All the flavors come together nicely. Yum yum.

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.

I have been really disappointed by Adagio lately, too. I’m finding the teas hit or miss, and often the flavor is either waaaaay too strong and overpowering to the point of being syrupy and sickening sweet and offputting, or as you say here, there isn’t enough, and it’s this shot-in-the-dark gamble every time. Some of the custom blends are all right, but it seems that is because the blends hold up better to that “gamble”… and even then, sometimes the custom blends don’t always come out the same, with one tea in the blend dominating all the others one time, but not the next time I order it. I’ve been overall really disappointed with the Adagio teas I’ve been trying lately… and this is one of the ones I had been curious about!

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.

This Earl Grey is nice, though not as intense, it seemed, as Adagio’s other Earl Greys. I think the cream is pretty dominant here, as opposed to some of the more traditional Earl Grey-y flavors. Either way, it’s a nice tea to have with a bit of cream and sugar.

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!

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.
