209 Tasting Notes
Cold brewed this up, but left it a little too long. A little bitter but still good, though I used all that I had for this. I wish I wouldn’t have forgotten about it!
I’ve had this sample from Design A Tea for a while, and finally got to it. I don’t know exactly what zabaglione is, but I have had strawberry zabaglione from 52teas. This smells a lot like a marzipan tea, and that’s basically the flavor. The roobios medicine taste is hidden pretty well under the marzipany flavor. I’m not sure if it actually tastes like zabaglione, but I do like the flavor! I accidentally let this steep for probably something like seven minutes and it’s still very good.
Creamy, minty, vanilla goodness. Still not getting as much chocolate flavor as I would like, but still a good tea.
I know a lot of people are upset with this one because it’s smokey, but honestly, I have to say that I enjoy it. I wasn’t sure at first, but now that I’m revisiting it, I’m definitely liking it. I’m a little disappointed that it isn’t what I expected, but I do enjoy it for what it is.
I decided to try it with milk this time, to see if it brought the chocolate out any more. The red sprinkles make the milk look really odd. There’s a faint bergamot, with the smokey flavor upfront. There’s definitely more of a creamy milk chocolate flavor that I couldn’t taste much without the milk. I still don’t recommend it to anyone who doesn’t like smokey teas, but I’m really enjoying this one now.
The recommended steeping parameters for this are 212 degrees for three minutes. This has both black and green tea, so I was a bit skeptical but went with it anyway. I think it did affect the green tea, because this didn’t taste very good at all. It also has earl grey green in it, and haven’t been a fan of Adagio’s earl greys. I think this just isn’t the tea for me
Cold brewed this, and added some sugar and I really like it! It was ok without the sugar, but very enjoyable with.
I coldbrewed this one and enjoyed it. The lemon grass and coconut definitely makes me think of Thai food. For iced teas, I do prefer more fruity teas, so I doubt I’d go buy this. But I’d definitely drink it if offered!
I’m sure I’ll regret this caffeine later, but for now, oh well! I was craving a tea with milk, so I decided to try this. Unfortunately, I let it go for about six minutes! It was bitter, so I had to sugar it up to make it drinkable
My last bag of this, finishing it off at work. For some reason, I decided that, while alone in a creaky, creepy old building at night, it would be a good idea to watch videos of people playing scary games. Soooo, this tea is comforting me after creeping myself out haha. Unfortunately, it seems like it got contaminated from some other tea, as it smelled smokey before steeping, and doesn’t taste very fruity or bergamoty. I also may need to clean my travel mug out a bit better. It’s not horrible, but it doesn’t taste as good as I remember. I wish I had more of this one to try.
