tastes like hot peach jello…
865 Tasting Notes
Infusion 3. Lost most of the peachy taste, but still very sweet:)
MY 1st EXPERIENCE W/ MATCHA! I had this at a new cafe my mom and I tried for dinner last nite… AMAZING! light and a touch grassy topped w/ a light froth that did not collapse when my lips touched it much like cappuccino or beer foam does. There was a little bit of delicious grassy sludge as I lovingly called it that I washed down w/ just an extra spash of water. Lovely. My new addiction.
2.25g of leaf in 6 oz boiling water for 5 min. Not to sound corny but this is quite literally peachy keen! It has a wonderful peach taste w/o being over powering or artificial. A great tea for those who like sweeter teas w/o it being labeled a fruit flavored tea.
infusions 9 10.
Back logging a bit- infusions 5 & 6 last nite and 7 this morning. Infusion 7 was VERY sweet:)
infusions 2-4. 6-8 min steeping respectively.
Much lighter than I expected from an oolong, but a lovely cup none the less!
Steeps 4-7. YUMMY!
3rd steep: 9min. Just as nice!
2nd steep w/ roasted red pepper hummus and true north almond crisps… YUMMY!
2.25g/6oz purified water… hoping to get at least 6 steeps out of this like I did for their Silver Needle.
2.25g steeped in only 2oz purified water. (just enough to cover the leaves). Add 4oz milk and 1 TBS Spiced Rum creamer. Makes a great winter drink for those who don’t drink alcohol. And much healthier for children than hot cocoa! For extra chocolate flavor shave 1oz 100% dark chocolate, add to the milk, and melt. Add chai concentrate.
infusions 4, 5, 6 steeped at 10, 11, and 12 mins respectively. AMAZING! These leaves are finally as exhausted as I am. I can go to bed now.
3rd infusion: 7min
Hmmm… lighter than normal for a 3rd infusion of this tea in all 3 points of the tirfecta (aroma, liquor, and taste). I had this w/ pancakes this morning and didn’t want a heavier tea so I just steeped it in water and, even though I RARELY sweeten my tea, added a tiny drizzle of maple syrup to echo the pancakes. YUM!
4th infusion: 10 min.
WOW… I’ve never done a 4th infusion before. AND I LIKE IT! It has an amazingly strong aroma for a 4th infusion and that ever so slight “fecal” taste is gone. It’s still very strong and complex though. And slightly flowery. I’m leaving to go out to dinner now, but next time I steep a cup, I definitely am gonna try a 5th infusion. It was so worth waiting 10 min:)
3rd infusion, 9min:
Still a slight fecal taste, but mostly a light and floral taste that’s a lot stronger than I expected for a 3rd infusion.
2nd infusion: Weird… this serving of leaves (the 2nd infusion at least) has a light fecal taste in addition to the grounded, yet lightly floral taste. Still very good though.
I wanted to see what chocolate and rose taste like so I steeped the only chocolate tea I had, Adagio’s Chocolate Chai, as directed (it’s a 2nd infusion so 6 min in boiling water) except I used 2.25 g of tea and 6 oz of water instead of 8 then used that to steep the tea bag (2nd infusion also) for 8 min. The 1st infusion of the chai was used in a dirty chai so the little coffee that remained gave it a little depth and the rose from the Get Relaxed gave a flirty undertone that was slightly floral but no where near perfumey- I LOVE IT!

I was craving a dirty chai misto, so I grabbed my chocolate chai.
3oz double strength premade coffee, boiled used to steep 2.25 g of tea for 5 min. Instead of placing my ingenuiTEA right on top of the cup I was going to drink out of, I placed the tea concentrate in a pan, added 3oz cold fat free milk and heated it up again and then poured the dirty chai misto in my cup and enjoyed!
You won’t believe this… but I wanted to see what chocolate and rose taste like and since I didn’t have any chocolate tea, I sweetened it w/ 1 teaspoon of pampered chef brand sweet mocha hazelnut sprinkles. If you don’t have them, mocha splenda for coffee would work wonderfully. The flavor in itself was very good, but the texture was a lil off. It felt like hot cocoa made with water. If you don’t mind that, you’ll love this. I think I’m gonna steep it in 3oz water and 3oz milk to get rid of that texture next time. I also want to try steeping it in Adagio’s Chocolate Chai.
I’m logging this one for my fiance. He steeped 2.25 g of tea leaves in 3oz boiling purified water for 5 min and then added 3oz organic fat free milk. He flavored it w/ 1 TBS caramel ice cream syrup, 1 TBS spiced rum coffee creamer, and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
