drank Toasted Sesame by Adagio Teas
902 tasting notes

Meghann tucked a sampler tin of this into my box o’ goodies. I love trying new and different tea flavors, and Toasted Sesame is definitely new and different!

The leaves look wet, they are so oily-looking. And, after brewing, there’s an oil-slick-like sheen on the top of the tea. The taste, to me, is more sweet black tea than sesame seeds. It’s pretty good. Would have liked it a bit less sweet and more toasty. I’ll try it at 5 minutes next time and see if more toasty taste comes out.

I drink this at 5 min and still don’t get toastyness. (Lucky for my taste buds, bad for the objective of the tea). I get soy sauce. This would be GREAT to make sticky rice with.

I found that this one is actually nice with a bit of honey added to it – it makes the tea taste like those sesame snap waffers.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
