drank White Cucumber by Adagio Teas
389 tasting notes

I love cucumbers. I love cucumber water. I have learned that I do not love cucumber tea. This tastes exactly like white tea with cucumber. Followed package directions and everything. Just not enjoying it. It might be good during the summer, brewed for a shorter period of time, iced, and with sugar… and possibly with fewer leaves than the 2 heaping teaspoons suggested on the package.

I agree with literally every other reviewer that the dry leaves smell like pickles. I quite like pickles, so it didn’t put me off. And ok the brewed tea smells briny too. And now that I think about it the tea also tastes vaguely briny… reading the other reviews has actually made me like this tea even less! At least it’s pretty – a nice pale yellow. Great thanks to TastyBrew for sending me the sample, but I don’t think I’ll be drinking this again any time soon.

Now you see why i never even opened my sample :-)

Haha no wonder you were eager to get rid of it! I’m thinking it might be interesting to cook with…

Pickles? That’s really weird. And it’s kinda too bad that the tea sucked, because I like cucumbers too.
Was this sample a free one that came with the order? Because I have a peach oolong that I got as a free sample with my order from Adagio and it wasn’t very good either.

I’m wondering if those free samples from them are really low quality or something because it seems like they aren’t that good.

Kaylee

This was a sample that I’m assuming TastyBrew got free with an order. I feel bad for anyone who actually paid for it.

Chiyo

Haha yeah me too, it’s such a shame. I’m really glad I didn’t pay for my peach EWWlong sample either. But at the same time I think that if a company is going to provide a free sample it should be of good quality regardless. It makes me wonder why I would even want a free sample if it’s gonna suck.

Kaylee

Yeah a good free sample tends to end with me making a purchase. Why waste everyone’s time with a bad sample?

Chiyo

Totally agree~! bro fist You’d expect a bit more from Adagio.
