What Adagio says about this tea:

Earl Grey Green tea represents a different take on a classic combination: Indian black tea with tangy bergamot flavor. It features a fresh green tea with a delicious crisp texture that pairs perfectly with the orange rind zestiness of the bergamot. Earl Grey Green has a pleasantly dry finish with lingering citrus sweetness.

 

Steep at 180° for 2-3 minutes.

 

INGREDIENTS:

Indian black tea with tangy bergamot flavor

MY REVIEW BEGINS HERE

 

Here are my thoughts on this tea:

I love a green tea that does not have that vegetal flavor to it, nothing says green like a vegetal taste so I enjoy a green that is smooth and missing that taste, especially for new green tea drinkers.

What I liked:

I love that this is a green tea that contains green tea and earl grey, it’s a great combination that is smooth and light.

What I did not like:

Not a thing.

 

Until next sip, pinkies up and face the wind! You’ve got this!

P.S. I’ve included an average brewing instructions chart below to help you brew your teas.
