Adagio Advent Calendar – Day 17
I ended up with two Earls today, and three black teas total! Not that I’m complaining, I’d rather have an excess of black teas than an excess of herbals. This one is apparently only available during the full moon, and it’s a coconut Earl Grey.
The bergamot is a bit over-the-top here for me. It tastes slightly bitter and very perfumey, and it completely overpowers the coconut flavor. I do get a bit of coconut cream in the background, and at the end of the sip after the bergamot fades.
I’m not a fan, it’s overall quite bitter and the bergamot tastes artificial. Meh!
I had both of my advent chocolates with this cup. The DAVIDsTEA selection was a Peach Matcha-Infused Milk Chocolate Star. Like the other versions, it had little-to-no matcha flavor and only a little hint of peach. It mostly just tasted like milk chocolate. From La Maison du Chocolat, today’s chocolate is called “Cristal”. It’s an almond and hazelnut milk chocolate praliné with crushed hazelnuts and sea salt. Needless to say, it’s scrumptious! I haven’t been doing many notes on these chocolates since they’ve all been fairly similar, but I love the salty edge of this one.
