223 Tasting Notes

This one proved to be a very tasty mini tuocha with a very nice light and smooth Menghai taste. Clearly not made from cheap broken leaves and dust as this mini tuocha easily beats out a lot of cheap bricks and even cakes that I’ve run across.

The Vanilla is nice and strong in Adagio’s Honeybush Vanilla which makes it an enjoyable tea. Although I doubt I will be buying more beyond the sample as while enjoyable it is not one that I see myself wanting to drink that often, not to mention how easy it is to add a few drops of vanilla to a cup of brewed Honeybush tea.

drank Honeybush by Adagio Teas

Personally I’m not sure what to think about the comment of Honeybush being very close to Rooibos as while I do not like Rooibos, must be the sweeter honey like notes in Honeybush that make it more enjoyable to me. While Honeybush is my caffeine-free tea of choice that I find enjoyable, quite honestly I would much rather be drinking a nice oolong or ripe puerh if at all possible depending upon the time of day.

Honeybush Chocolate turned out to be one of the stronger tasting honeybush flavored teas I’ve had yet. Unlike a lot of other chocolate teas that I’ve had come off seeming a bit empty and in need of sugar added to give it more flavor, but the natural sweet flavor of honeybush takes care of that nicely.

drank Honeybush Mango by Adagio Teas

Like the other fruit flavored honeybush teas I find that the mango taste is fairly light and blends into the honeybush fairly well. Best described as honeybush with light mango flavor notes in the background.

The orange flavor is fairly subtle in how well it blends with the honeybush’s sweetness. If you are looking for a strong orange flavor this is not for you but if you like honeybush and think some extra orange flavor notes would be good, then this would be a good tea for you.

drank Mixed Berry Green by Lipton

Very bad even following the suggested brewing instructions this turned out with a bitter and sour berry flavor that was bad enough for me to dump the cup of tea down the drain after a single sip.

A sweet fruity berry tea with a nice light raspberry taste. Can not really taste the tea but with this one it doesn’t really matter as with Lipton flavored teas chances are you are drinking it for the flavor and not the tea.

Another interesting green tea with a nice fruity mix. Personally this flavored green tea comes off as tasting a bit more like a juice cocktail mix than a typical green tea. But that is perfectly fine with me as that is how I treat these less serious flavored green teas as a lower/zero calorie alternative to juice.
