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 generic mint green tea that does not have anything that impressive to me.

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.

drank Lemon Ginseng by Lipton

Another easy sipper flavored green tea from Lipton. The lemongrass nicely complements and lightens the ginseng. A light flavor that allows the green tea base to show through which is acceptable but not the best.

drank Honey Green by Lipton
229 tasting notes

A very interesting and good tasting teabag green tea. What impresses me the most of this tea is that it tastes like honey yet the ingredients do not include honey as it is actually a mix of green tea, orange peel, chamomile flowers, licorice root, roasted chicory root, natural flavor (whatever that means) and soy lecithin. While not a traditional tea in any sense this herbal honey blend with a very decent green tea base (or at least I could taste that it was green tea and not bad green tea) is very enjoyable. Better watch out tea snobs because if Lipton keeps it up with more teas like this one it can no longer be used as a synonym for bad tea.

Wow I must admit that I was very skeptical of the free sample included in my last order as in my experience aged ripe puerh tends to be both overrated and overpriced. While I would not buy a full tuocha of this one given its price the sample made an enjoyable set of gaiwan infusions. It is indeed sweet and smooth but I can not really say too much else about it as it is a fairly weak and plain tea, which is a bonus for a lot of people but not for me given my love of strong puerh. No off earthy or musty tastes or bitterness in this one but that is how it should be with a good ripe puerh.

drank Dancong Aria by Adagio Teas
229 tasting notes

Wow now this is a really good Dancong tea that makes me wish I would have gotten a larger size than the sample. Clearly a lightly roasted oolong but the roast is more subtile than with most Wuyi oolongs. This one has a very nice light and sweet fruity flavor to it and a REAL honey sweetness to it that I would actually naturally describe as tasting like honey might have been added when I know it wasn’t on my own without being told that it “is supposed to” taste like honey. Not to mention that this tea holds up very well to multiple gaiwan infusions for me.
