Adagio Teas - Earl Grey Bella Luna

Characteristics

  • Nose: Smooth and warm bergamot with equally balanced black tea aromas. (9/10)
  • Brew: Dark Golden Brown 
  • First Note: Smooth creaminess from the coconut and corn flowers (9/10)
  • Body: An amazingly well balanced cup with the perfect black tea profile combined with a not overpowering bergamot, while the smoothness of the coconut provides a savory creaminess (9/10)
  • Finish: All the aromas and tastes finish clean, smooth and balanced (9/10)

Brew

Volume tea: 5 teaspoons
Water: 1200ml
Temp: 212*
Time: 3 Minutes




Verdict

The only bad thing I can say about this tea is the lack of availability to readily purchase it. This tea is everything a modern earl grey should be. Elite earl grey drinkers may snub their noses at the slight cream from the coconut and corn flowers, but for my taste buds, it is perfect. Some early grey's bother my stomach, this one does not. I love this tea so much, it has become my goto tea for making Bulletproof Tea (14oz hot tea + 1.5tsp unrefined coconut oil + 20 seconds in a blender). I will be purchasing large quantities of this any time it is in stock.
