Adagio Teas - Earl Grey Lavender

Characteristics

  • Nose: Light tea, strong cream, medium orange, strong vanilla (8/10)
  • Brew: Dark Brown
  • First Note: creamy vanilla, faint notes of tea, forward citrus (7/10)
  • Body: Smooth taste of black tea, vanilla, cream and soothing hints of bergamot (8/10)
  • Finish: Black tea and bergamot linger, minutes later the taste of tea and aromas of vanilla continue to saturate your senses (9/10)


Brew

Volume tea: 4 teaspoons
Water: 1000ml
Temp: 212*
Time: 3 Minutes

Verdict

A very complex tea, which has a lot going on, not 100% sure how I feel about it. It certainly delighted on the first and last sip; but it's complex and rich flavors outside of the tea itself might make this a difficult to live with on a daily basis tea. It might serve one best to keep this as a specialty tea to serve to those with taste buds not attuned to the simple joys of a plain tea (ie cream and sugar people). I could not see consuming this a morning or afternoon cup; best served as an after meal tea.
