Personally:

I’ve known about and have tasted Adagio teas for a few years, to me they are one of the small companies that made it big, through hard work and allowing people like me the opportunity to review their teas and tell you all about them. Adagio works hard to make sure their company represents the tea market from tea leaf to last sip. I’m honored to share the reviews of their teas with you!

What the site has to say about their product:

Earl Grey Bravo is a classic blend of artisan black tea from Sri Lanka, flavored with bergamot (a citrus fruit). The perfect afternoon tea: zesty and exhilarating fresh citrus aroma, slightly dry to the nose, with a rounded and balanced orange rind flavor to match the tang of Ceylon black tea. Our Earl Grey Bravo benefits from a pleasantly dry finish with a lingering citrus sweetness.

 

 

COSTS: $2.00 / sample (and up)

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

 

REVIEW

Brewed: Dark Liquor.

 

Scent: Ahhh.. Earl Grey, I’m partial to the Earls but this has a nice citrus note to it.

 

Flavor: There is a definite deep note of bergamot in this tea as it sits majestically with the tea. Although the Bergamot gives a distinctive flavor to the tea there is still a slight more citrus to it because of the added orange peel.

 

Sentiments: Great tea with a bit of a citrus twist on a classic tea. Love the way the floral and citrus notes twist into a great blend.
