Earl Gray Bravo

I love Earl Gray so I ordered some awhile back from Aadgio however the Bergamont was so strong you couldn't taste the tea and it was very oily.

A friend ordered it more recently and found it to be the same for her. Is this just how Adagio makes or gets it? Is it possible to change the formula?

In my limited experience (a sample tin that came with the ingenuiTea pot) Earl Grey Bravo is just VERY bergamoty.
Earl Grey is generally one of my favorites, but I don't care for Adagio's blend it's just too overpowering.

I just ordered a sample size of Adagio's Earl Grey Bravo and I gotta say, quite bergamonty! It's so citrusy that it's barely recognizable as earl grey. I kind of wish it was a little creamier. I'm just gonna blend it with some vanilla. Maybe that will smooth it out a bit.

I think Bravo is an indication of extra bergamot, just as bravissimo means extra loud in music and much of Adagio's nomenclature is taken from music. Try of of the other Earl Greys and compare.
