Tea of the Week – Earl Grey Bravo
Name: Earl Grey Bravo
Region: Yunnan region of China
Bought At: Adagio.com
Price: $2 for a 10 cup sample
First Impressions: Strong Citrus Smell
Wow! This was a lot better than I was expecting. Maybe because of the poor reputation for tea and England in the States, I always thought that “Earl Grey” would be dull and bland. How wrong I was! The sweet citrus smell given off by the tea leads to an equally pleasing taste. Definitely the most tasteful black tea of the Adagio sampler I have been going through. I wish I could tell you how it tasted with a little milk and sugar, I enjoyed it so much plain that I didn’t want to try it! Probably the Black tea I will be recommending to new tea drinkers, not once did I get even a hint of bitterness off it.
My Rating: 4/5
