drank Artichoke Green by Adagio Teas
1632 tasting notes

I got the savory teas sample collection with my Adagio order and tonight I decided to try the most intimidating-sounding one first. I’ve never really eaten much artichoke and it’s always been mixed in with other ingredients – such as in a calzone or an omelett – so I don’t really have a definitive taste pinned down in my mind except that it always tasted rather pickled and salty.

The smell of the dry leaves and the brewing tea is surprisingly fruity – in fact it almost smells like peach or mango to me. The dry leaves are of a nice size and a bright, fresh-looking green shade and they brew up to make a clear, pale-green coloured tea.

The taste is almost as fruity as the scent and it’s sweet, though in a rather subdued manner. It’s only on the aftertaste that I get a faint hint of what I’m used to thinking of as artichoke – savory and pickled.

I got mango too! It may be the most intimidating sounding, but the sesame is the most intimidating smelling lol.:P

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
