I was looking for a creamy earl grey (something a little more mild, or at least something with a bergamot that felt less like a spray of perfume in my mouth) but had been disappointed with Adagio (whose cream tasted artificial to me…) I’m not entirely sure that this exactly qualified — it isn’t entirely creamy on its own, at least to me, because there is definitely a gumdrop-y flavor going on in this tea. At first, it actually put me off; having bought two ounces of tea, however (and it’s mostly leaves, so it came out to being a LOT of tea) I felt obligated to drink it. At around my third cup, I started to really enjoy it. Half and half and some brown sugar is my favorite combination, also I recommend mixing it with Teavana’s Honeybush Vanilla to make it a little more mild. I also felt a bit daring and threw a little in with my DAVIDsTEA Blueberry Jam, and it gave it a nice little edge.
