4366 Tasting Notes
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sampling of this tea!
This is good. The cranberry flavor is there, tart but not verging on sour, because the lovely peach flavor comes through and cuts through the tartness just enough. I am not getting the cinnamon flavor that the description suggests, perhaps that is an error?
The black tea base is a little more astringent that I’d like it to be, but other than that, this is quite good.
I got this with my order a couple of weeks ago, but this is my first time trying this particular tea from that order. I have tried the root beer float from NecessiTeas and that one was pretty good…
This is really very good.
I’m curious though, Frank… are those lilac blossoms or lavender blossoms?

This is very tasty. The spices, caramel and vanilla create a very pleasant taste. The apple is a bit less pronounced but I can taste it amongst the spicy notes. If I were to change anything about this blend, it would be to soften the black tea base Adagio uses which would make these delightful flavors more enjoyable.
Another awesome blend from Rachel!
Trying this one again. It is an enjoyable cup. Bold and brisk and somewhat woodsy. I am enjoying this with a Italian fig cookie (cuccidata), and it’s a really nice pairing. The tea brings out some of the delightful fruit notes in the cookie, while the sweetness of the cookie brings out hints of honey and flower in the tea.
I have to admit that my very first sip of this tea was a little scary, because I could taste that funky Adagio black tea dry-starchy taste that I’m not terribly fond of. But, as the tea cools just enough to sip it comfortably, the flavors begin to come through very nicely.
I LOVE chestnuts, and I can taste them here, together with the cinnamon and the light touch of caramel – and it’s a very pleasing combination of flavors. The black tea flavor is still there, but it’s less pronounced and it isn’t quite as dry/starchy/aggressive as it was in the first sip.
I am liking this one a lot.

This is one that I hadn’t tried before from Tea Forte. It has a nice mango flavor – although it isn’t incredibly strong. The green tea is smooth and mellow and really pleasant as an after dinner cuppa. A nice buttery finish.
