What Adagio says about this tea:
Earl Grey Bella Luna brings the light of the full moon to your cup. Robust Earl Grey shines with familiar bergamot notes, highlighted by a soft glow of coconut and cream. Rich, bright, and well-rounded, this tea is not to be missed… but it only rises once a month, so don’t miss out!
Steep at 180° for 2-3 minutes.

MY REVIEW BEGINS HERE
Here are my thoughts on this tea:
Wait, what? Is that coconut? It is!! What a great and different taste and that coconut really stand out and I loved it. There is a slight burnt taste but it’s not bad it almost adds to the coconut flavor. There is a slight bitterness but no aftertaste and the liquor is a medium amber.
What I liked:
I love the coconut flavor that stands out in this tea, the earl grey is a nice compliment.
What I did not like:
Nothing. I really liked this tea, it’s different and smooth.
Until next sip, pinkies up and face the wind! You’ve got this!
