Best silver needle I have ever had! I could steep it overnight and there would be not 1 hint of bitterness whatsoever!!
24 Tasting Notes
Yes I am giving this tea a rare 100!! I is simply amazing , it tastes like peach flavoured jolly rancher, dried apricots and honey with a light champagne finish.
Strong toasted grain taste to it. Got 3 steepings out of it.
One of if not the best genmaicha teas on the Planet. It tasted like roasted sesame seeds.
AMAZING!!!!!! Never in my life have I ever had a tea that was straight caramel and maple syrup flavour!!
Had this a while ago , very floral with caramel nutty notes.
Sweet, real strong notes of caramel, clover honey, some fruit and light floral notes as well.
I grew up with this tea in the house in Australia. It is awesome for me because it reminds me of home!
First off , just straight awesome!! I brewed it for 45 seconds and the brew had a emerald colour, the taste was that of steamed spinach and melted butter, the texture was like you were drinking melted butter! MMMMM and I got 3 steepings out of it, a first for a tea from adagio.
I must say, I love silver needle tea, but adagio’s silver needle was somewhat of a disappointment. First it was almost old looking (the leaves), the color was ok in the tea the taste was very bland, your artichoke notes, toasted grain. there was not very much after steeping once. One steeping was all I got. score 85
I just got this in a sample from adagio. Dry loose leaf smelled like apricots and it got my hopes up. I steeped it in boiling water for 5.5 mins. and the liquor was a medium amber to black. It tasted like a malty scotch with some dried apricots at the end. I got 3 steepings out of 1 teaspoon of leaf. Overall it was OK at best.
It is one of the best black teas in a teabag I have ever had.
Strong apricot notes with low toasted grain or nuts. Really strong floral notes..kinda like drinking perfume after a while , it also had a buttery texture to the tea.
Awesome, has great malty notes
Great tea! lots of steepings Great Value!
Bright and tasty, note of seaweed and light fruit nots like kiwi fruit or something I couldn’t put my finger on it to save my life.
Loved it!, I got sick and decided to have this tea by itself, it was like having espresso with caramelized sugar notes.
I did this tea as a celebration of the first episode of GTTV. I was so bummed how bad it was, I had the 2008 vintage, and it was bitter , very bitter, needed more aging, damp soil and mushroom notes on mid-back palate.
I love this tea! its sweet yet complex, good memories…
I scored this a 90-95 on an episode of GTTV, Great seaweed notes upfront,more of a floral back end of it. A pleasant cuppa!
I should have tried jasmine tea from other companies before I tried this one they are all a disappointment now. Awesome tea though.
The best chai tea EVER!, Nothing I have ever had since tastes as good as this tea, just Perfect!
It is true! Starbucks has loose leaf tea! If you ask for it I had the loose leaf earl grey tea latte minus the milk. Finally a good cup of tea from Tazo. ( I almost wrote them off for being so bad when it comes to the bagged tea)
Not bad ,not great. I need 3 bags to make it have any flavor, the king size or the family size one s are good each bag is supposed to make 4 cups, but if you brew it up in one cup and drink it, you will be rewarded with a cup of awesome!!
