4846 Tasting Notes
Backlog: I’m not a particular fan of Adagio’s black tea base, but, when I’m sick, I find that my palate is not nearly as sensitive to the harsher tones of the tea. I like this one with ginger and honey added, it really enhances the Asian feel of this tea nicely, and the ginger is working wonders on my cold/flu/whatever this is.
With my taste buds being off (I don’t know if this is a cold or the flu, all I know is that I am not 100%), I have decided to sip on teas that I have previously tasted. This is one that I grabbed, I love the ginger in this, and I found this one to be particularly comforting over the past two days.
I think this tea was actually calling out to me. I hope it helps!
Here is the full-length review I wrote of this one (back when my taste buds were operating at normal capacity):
Well, despite my attempts to fight it, I have come down with the cold that my youngest daughter brought home with her over the holiday. So, this is going to be the last of “new” (err… that is, new to me!) teas that I will be drinking until I feel better, because my taste buds just aren’t up to it.
This is probably much better than it tastes to me right now, so I am not going to rate it until I can taste it with healthy taste buds.
Delicious! I want to slow down on the caffeine so I am having a cup of this tonight.

My stomach feels a bit uneasy so I decided to try this and see if it helps.
The flavor is quite nice. The ginger is a little spicy, but not overpowering. I can’t really taste much from the rooibos, perhaps a little bit of the woody/nutty taste in the background but it is certainly not a dominant presence. There is a sweet taste to this too that really makes this very yummy. It’s a lot sweeter than I thought it would be.
It’s really quite pleasant and as far as my stomach goes, I think it’s doing the job!
Oh… so lovely! I do love a good Oolong, and this one is good! It has done a remarkable job at tempering my palate after eating a very spicy Caribbean jerk chicken too. (extra bonus points since I don’t need to break out the kefir)
This is one that I plan on spending a little more time with before I write a full-length review. I hadn’t originally planned on it, but, after tasting it, I find that I just wish to enjoy it right now, and not write so much. Good Oolongs tend to have that effect on me.
And this is a good Oolong! (Did I mention that already?)
This is really good. Liquid Silk! So smooth and imparts a soft mouthfeel. But unlike some greens where I would describe this soft, smooth sensation as buttery – it doesn’t have that buttery taste. Not a bad thing … at all … just different. I like the buttery, but I really like this too.
Slightly vegetative, but more like a fresh vegetable. It isn’t grassy, nor does it remind me of steamed vegetables, it reminds me more of a crisp salad type of vegetative taste. It has a floral note in the background too. Orchid?
I like this very much…
ETA: As I continue to sip, a buttery flavor develops. It is still not nearly as “buttery” tasting as a Sencha, but it definitely has that buttery, silky smooth texture.
