5 Tasting Notes
In the bag, you smell a lot of almond with a slight hint of cinnamon. In the cup, the vanilla comes through a little more with cinnamon coming to back it up. Despite a seemingly good team, it just didn’t create any sparks with me even with some sugar and milk.
A cup of very smooth caramel and vanilla. You can smell pumpkin spice out of the bag but it does make a disappearance after brewing. I take mine with a little sugar and a splash of milk. It’s very good to have after a meal, I like drinking it while eating something with chocolate.
This blend is absolutely amazing. I’m not usually a fan of lemon but this tea won me over completely. The smell out of the bag is like lemon pound cake. The lemon scent may seem like it would be overpowering in the taste but fear not! It’s just right next to the cream and Earl Grey. This is a blend that should not be missed out on. I take mine with cream and sugar.
I got this tea in a black tea sample pack at an Adagio store. The moment I tried it, I fell in love with it. It’s got a toasty taste with a little fruity notes. I would be careful with oversteeping it, this tea can get bitter quickly. Otherwise, one of my favorites as a simple black tea.
I purchased a pack of teabags of this from the store in San Francisco because I really love blueberry teas. Admittedly, I had no idea was cassis was, but the smell was what won me over. After initially brewing for 3 minutes, I found the flavor to not be strong enough and fell a little flat. The second time I gave it 5 minutes and flavors came out much better but still unlike the smell out of the bag (like others have mentioned). I found that adding a bit of sugar helped bring out the berry flavor a bit more. Though a touch disappointed by the smell/taste discrepancy, I still enjoyed this tea.
