1427 Tasting Notes
I needed something to warm me up at lunch time, so I got a cup of this at the restaurant (it was a choice between this and ‘orange peacock’ I swear to god that’s what the waitress called it!). I didn’t steep it very long and it came out quite pleasently light with an almost floral, citrusy taste.
Not bad at all for a generic earl grey. I suspect the key thing was the fact that I didn’t steep it very long.
Ridiculously sweet but oddly enough I still love it.
Mmmm, had this with a touch of skim milk. It’s so good and satisfying on a cold, grey day like this.
Argh, Yogi’s teabags always tear on me for some reason – I hate having floaty bits in my tea!
Steeped for 3.5 minutes. No matter how much or how little I steep it it tastes like I’ve added 3 or 4 teaspoons of sugar due to the licorice root in the tea.
Fruity but kinda bland, I think it needs to be steeped longer than the reccomended 3 minutes.
I was a bit confused because despite this being called a ‘red tea’ it isn’t rooibos-based but Ceylon tea-based.
Drank another cup this morning. I steeped it for 4.5 minutes and noticed a bit less smokiness but still none of the black pepper taste Adagio claims it has.
That tartness disguises most of the green tea flavour unfortunatly. And I supect the company is cheating and using hibiscus instead of the actual fruit flavours for all their pomegranate/cranberry/raspberry teas because they all taste remarkably similar, I find.
Thumbs down for you Stash!
I accidently added too much milk and that kinda drowned the flavour. Oops. :(
I was wrong, I did have another bag. I stuck this cup in the fridge and it made an interesting and refreshing iced tea, though the chamomile taste is quite strong when it’s cold for some reason.
My first taste of Yunnan! The leaves were longer than I’m used to seeing but it was neat watching them expand and unfurl while they steeped (5 minutes).
I’m not entirely sure what they meant by ‘peppery’ in the description, to me it tastes more smokey but with a cleaner, vegetale undertone almost like what you’d get in a green tea maybe.
This is one I’ll have to experiment with the steeping time more, but I think it’s quite enjoyable thus far. It’s robust enough that it’d probably be a good wake-me-up tea to have in the morning.
A nice, quick pick-me-up.
Hmm, I can really taste the lemon grass today for some reason, maybe because I added less milk than usual.
Steeped it twice, unfortunatly it doesn’t seem to resteep very well. :(

This is the last one in the ML sample pack I got. Damn.
Had a bit of this (iced) left over from a couple days ago.
I was careful with brewing this one but it still turned out slightly bitter and astringent. Other than that it’s a pretty basic green tea.

I drank this at a sushi place and really enjoyed it. It’s more of less my first experience with genmaicha, and even though this is a pretty basic grocery store brand (I asked the server) I’m quite impressed.
The roasted grain flavour is distinct but at the same time it doesn’t overpower the food it’s paired with. If anything it enhanced the taste of the sushi.
Had it with milk. In some ways it’s almost too much for the tea as the milk seems to cover some of it’s more subtle notes present.
The Ceylon tea is a little on the bitter side, but the slight hint of vanilla and sweet grenadine was nice.
Meh, there was barely any vanilla flavour to speak of. The boyfriend likes it though.
