6 Tasting Notes
This was my first tea I have tried from Adagio – I spent so long looking at the custom blends, haha, it sucked me in. I kept seeing sour apple being listed in the blends, so I decided to make it my first purchase. It came in the mail today, and I instantly put the kettle on so I could try it. I followed the directions, and it wasnt strong enough after five minutes, so I added another two minutes, and I thought it might bring out the flavor if I added a packet of monk fruit with it, which it improved it a lot! I ate pickles while it was steeping, so I kind of ruined my palate, since I taste garlic and apples, LOL. I definitely taste the apple, but I dont think I would call it sour – more fruity than tart? But good! Just dont expect the sourness if you order this. I hope it has a good second steep, I would love a second cup of this!
Yup, I still don’t like this one – I had it this morning with my eggs – I don’t like the sweetener they use, if they took out the stevia, is it, maybe? I feel like I would like it a whole lot better. Maybe it’s sucralose? Whatever it is, I’m definitely not a fan, it has an aftertaste that lingers. Bummer. I love Red Rose black teas, though – not a diss against the whole line! Don’t get me wrong!
This was one of the few teas I have tried that I was not a fan of. There is an aftertaste that I did not like – I found out why, after I read the box – it contains stevia, which I do not like. The flavor sounded so promising! It would have been so much more pleasant if they didnt add stevia.
Flavors: Cheesecake, Strawberry
I bought this while grocery shopping, and it was on an endcap. I had never seen lavender tea before, and was nervous to try it, not sure if it sounded good or gross – I ended up buying another box once I tried it – it ended up being one of mine and my roommates favorite tea to wind down with on the couch and watch girly television. Christmas in Paris opened up a whole new window of trying lavender teas and getting excited when I see them!
Flavors: Chocolate, Lavender
I wish this tea was not discontinued – I bought this tea because I saw it contained wintergreen, which I have never seen in any teas I have ever read the ingredients on. I really liked it over the Christmas season, I am disappointed I only have two bags left, since I cannot find wintergreen tea anywhere else out there.
Flavors: Mint, Peppermint, Spearmint
I bought this from the Dollar Tree, cause the name sounded fabulous – I had my first cup, and it smelled fabulous – I love Ceylon tea. I brewed it for the max recommended time and felt like it needed a teaspoon of sugar – I normally dont sweeten my teas with anything, but once I added the sugar, it was soooooo good. I went and looked online, and they dont show up on the TEViVe website, so I guess they were discontinued. I went and looked at the other Dollar Tree in town – they had eight boxes left, so I bought five more – this is definitely one of my regular teas.
Flavors: Blueberry, Honey
