Adagio's Cream Tea

Among the free samples I recently received from Adagio Teas was a package of their Cream Tea. The name intrigued me, because in teatime circles "Cream Tea" usually refers to the simple English teatime treat of scones, clotted cream and jam, and tea. This time, however, the name "Cream Tea" refers to cream-flavored tea.

According to Adagio, this tea consists of Ceylon black tea with dairy-free cream flavoring.

The leaves are nice and black with a few bits of brown. I could smell the "cream" as soon as I opened this package of tea. Steeped, the tea had a very sweet, caramel-like flavor, and it did indeed taste as if cream had already been added, which I find rather magical. If you like a dessert type of tea experience, I definitely recommend this Cream Tea variety, and you can find out more about it here.


  1. Sounds yummy, but I sort of think I would rather add my own cream. Interesting concept, though!

  2. It always amazes me when I sample a tea that is creamy! How do they do that?

  3. I have a Cream Tea variety, but I don't remember by whom, I'll have to look. Sounds lovely!

  4. Sounds interesting - can imagine it would be nice in certain baking recipes as well.

    I don't add milk or sweetener to manyh of my teas - so this would be rather novel to me. But worth a try, I think more than anything!

    I rather do enjoy the Cream Teas with scones, rather. : - )

    Wish you were here.

  5. How pretty and it does sound delicious with dessert.

  6. I find the chemistry of this fascinating. I wouldn't likely care for the tea, but the science is interesting!

  7. Sounds interesting. I wonder if it adds many calories to the tea.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
