58 Tasting Notes
I really wanted to try Adagio Teas, and I had one of those free $5 gift cards, so I decided to get a sample pack of this, and it cost 75 cents in total (with shipping. I was so happy). I had really wanted a non-fruit or chamomile or peppermint decaffinated tea because my mom’s allergic to chamomile, and doesn’t like fruit teas very much, and we have a lot of peppermint right now. So I decided on this tea because we both love earl grey and rooibos.
I really like this tea. It sort of is a mini war, because the rooibos is so flavorful, and there is a nice amount of bergamot in here. But it works somehow. It’s sort of like you can taste both the rooibos and the earl grey at different times, but not really working together? I still really love this tea though, and will probably get more of it. I sort of wish there was more bergamot, because I love the bergamot flavor. Still, it’s yummy.
Wow. This is beautiful. So, In my mug it smells like gingerbread. Which is amazing. And it tastes sweet, but earthy and oolong-like. I don’t even know how to describe it. Well, now i’ve tried all Davids Tea straight oolongs, and I think that this may overtake the Guangzhou Milk Oolong (which I need to get more of). This tea is wonderful. Just drink it.
Mmmmm. This is really tangy and tart, but I can taste the spearmint too, which is really lovely. I really like this now. But it’s a pretty heavy tea, so I think I’ll get 3 cups out of this half ounce bag :(
I let it steep for a while because I liked it really fruity. Also, it turns bright yellow. Always a plus when your tea turns cool colors.
Well, I steeped it too long, so it came out a bit bitter. The ginseng sweetness showed through, and it’s a weird sweetness in the back of my throat… not wholly unpleasant, but very weird. I don’t know if I’d buy a whole tin of this, but it’s not horrid.
The second steep, is less weird. I mean, I can still taste the ginseng, but now it’s better with the oolong.
I just bought this, and it smells so good. I’m going to drink it right before I go to sleep, but I’ve had it before (and when I didn’t realize how powerful it was) and it made me sooo sleepy. I decided to use this because my sleep schedule has been sort of off, as i’ve been sick. But it’s pretty good as well!
Okay, I’m writing this note as I watch Monty Python, so this should be interesting.
So I had had this before and I liked it. (John Cleese is robbing a lingerie store). It is pretty peppy. I think that the Acai powder on the ingredients makes it sort of bitter, but also more interesting, as well as the juniper berries (talking trees). I enjoy it. It’s odd, but I enjoy it. I’m not going to give it a really amazing score though, because it leaves a weird taste in my mouth. Okay. And now for something completely different…
Now, the second steep was quite good. It was pretty, light, and fruity.
