32 Tasting Notes

This tea was delicious for a bagged tea! I tried a sample out of curiosity from a gas station by purchasing a bag and making it at home. It seemed like it might hit the spot and I was in the mood for some experimentation.

The black tea is dark and rich, especially for a bagged tea. I am not a fruit tea fan but it is a mild taste of fruit present behind the other glorious flavorings of the tea.

Strong but not overbearing, punching with flavor, and quite refreshing, I went to the local Walmart to try and buy myself a box. Sadly they did not sell it. The hunt continues.

I was excited about this one from the description, and when I opened the bag, the gorgeous, strong smell enticed me. I was looking for an Adagio tea that would suit my cravings for a good Orange Spice, and also my love for Chai and spicy teas.

Sadly the tea was much milder than the scent. Without sugar it was basically just a plain black tea that, while smooth and warming, did not stand out with other sensational black teas from Adagio. With sugar the spices were brought out a bit, as is typical for spice teas, but it still was below the usual others I drink. It has a smooth, pleasant flavour but I couldn’t detect any Orange in there and little bite.

It’s odd but I only starting tasting the clove toward the end of my first cup. Made the tongue have a pleasant tingling and a relaxing effect. The clove turned on me though…not sure if it was because I was on my second cup and it just starts kicking in then, or else because the tea was beginning to cool. At this point the clove was about all I tasted and became too much
