If you’re looking for an Earl Grey alternative, this is it! It has well balanced notes of cream and bergamont. There’s a really nice overlaying floral quality to it as well, and only a mild astringency to it. I often find earl greys too bergamont flavoured, but not this one. Definitely a staple in the cabinet. Makes a pretty great iced tea too!

I absolutely love this tea! I think it is awesome that it has the creamy taste already built in rather then having to put it into the tea! This is my go-to Earl Grey drink!

This tea is my idea of heaven. I discovered it at a local tea room in Delray called Shaffer’s and it’s now the only thing I drink whenever I go there. Apart from the lovely moniker, the taste and aroma are spellbinding to an Earl Grey lover. Even the blue hue of some of the flowers in this loose tea are breathtaking. I could seriously compose a sonnet to this tea.

Did I just get a bad batch? I first tried this tea as a sample and brewed it for 3 mins. I took one sip and got a mouthful of citrus bergamot! Way too intense. I had to pour it out. I then came back to steepster and went to adagio website to check reviews and no one else had the same experience. So I tried another cup. Same experience. A mouthful of bergamot and lingering after taste. Ugh!

I had good luck by blending this tea. I blended it most successfully with vanilla black tea. I do agree with you – this tea has so much bergamot that it tastes like perfume to me.

I LOVE Adagio’s Earl Grey Bravo. I didn’t like Moonlight. So whatever that says… :)

I’m not the biggest vanilla fan so I was skeptical of having this tea. I got a sample and now I’m sad that I’m running low! This tea is very similar to the Earl Grey Bravo but has a touch of vanilla and bit of a smooth cream flavor.

I usually mix this tea with Adagio’s Cream Black, some half & half and a cube of sugar, Its great. This is one of those tea that at the beginning with black i thought it to be astringent. But as time has gone I’ve tried other Ear gray have return to this one and i really enjoy it. I guessed my palate has change over the years. i am on my last couple cups and i am sad to see it go.

Here’s Hoping traveling teabox – Round 3

I’ve been really into earl grey creams lately, so I figured since this was in the box, I would give it a whirl. It’s not bad, but it doesn’t rank up there with the Argo Earl Grey Creme, which is my current favorite, though I do have some of the Zen’s version on the way to me which has been touted as the best. We’ll see. Not bad, just not memorable.

Oh, I’ll have to try the Argo!

Not a favorite. I read the notes that suggested that it should have a short steep and adjusted the steep to 2 min. Still bitter and astringent. Not my cuppa.

I got a sample of this and was not impressed. It was very perfumey, and not really smooth. I tamed it by mixing it 50-50 with Adagio’s Vanilla black tea. That did the trick! Now, it’s creamy and what I expected an Earl Grey Cream to taste like. This also solved the problem of what to do with the Vanilla Black tea that was only okay. This blend elevated both of them.
I still will not buy either of these teas, though.
The rating I’m giving corresponds to the unblended version. Blended, I would give this tea an 85.

The scent of this tea is lovely, full of citrus, floral and vanilla notes; however, the flavor is mostly floral and there is an unpleasant aftertaste.

This was steeped using boiling water for about 3 minutes. The flavor was barely there, so I left it for another minute at at 4 minutes, it seemed better.

The tea has a light bitterness, but it’s not outrageous. I don’t taste much of the vanilla/cream that was promised because the floral flavors steal the show. The problem is that they aren’t terribly pleasant.

The tea feels a little chalky, and the aftertaste is strong. I have tried Earl Greys that I like, but I don’t think this will be one of them.
