729 Tasting Notes
Drinking this cold steeped tonight. It’s ok, it’s good. The peach flavor is nice, not fake and candy – I just wish there was a little more of it. The white base is fine, present but not in the way. This is a decent peach white tea. I have a LOT of peach teas in my house and this one is good but not my favorite.
On that note, drinking the last of this puts my cupboard officially at 299. Goodbye 300s, nice to know you, but don’t ever want this much tea in my house again. Operation cupboard reduction continues…..
It’s been hot here for the last couple of weeks and I haven’t been drinking much hot tea. It was significantly cooler today, and I drank a BUNCH of hot teas.
I feel like I’ve been writing negative or just ok tasting notes all day. Wanted to end the day with something GOOD.
This is beyond good – this is a great tea. It’s beautiful to look at and it’s beautiful to drink. There are tons of tasting notes about it, so I’m not going to go into long boring details. It’s just a great sweet potato, grainy style black tea.
This makes me happy tonight. :))
I have two samples of this in my house – the lovely TheTeaFairy was kind enough to send me some, and then Brendan included this as a sample with my order. Thank you very much to both of you.
This is wasted on me. Sorry guys, can’t do it – I can not get past the pine/eucalyptus/cedar, whatever that tree taste is. I’m not getting any saffron, very little vanilla – it’s just lost behind the tree taste.
Maybe I’m too much of a city girl to appreciate this…..
I’m thinking that most of the custom Adagio tea I have are just OK – and that’s true of this one too. Not bad, not great just ok.
I’m not getting much strawberry – more stone fruit (apricot), vanilla, cream.
I’m happy to have bought the set, and is fun to try the custom blends, the tins are so cute, but the tea is more of a novelty than great tea.
WOW – this is one of the strangest straight tea’s I’ve ever drank. This is grape oolong, this is more grape than some flavored oolongs I’ve had. Weird, strange, interesting – in a good way. Wouldn’t say brandy, but this is fruity and GRAPE all the way.
It’s really dark, almost black, with just a hint of oolong woody and then the grape – wow – did I mention the grape?
Thank you so much Ubacat for introducing me to this one. Will pick more up with my next Tealux order.
