143 Tasting Notes

I was looking through my cupboard trying to find something I could finish, found this and thought it would be perfect. My husband loves chai’s and thought it could be an amusing tea moment before he goes out of town for a few days. I told him the name and that it was a chai. With a smirk he asked “What’s in it.” Grinning I said “Just a fun blend of tea.” As we sipped it, we knew it would not become a favorite but it was ok. Each sip was half funny chai half some kind of black tea. Then he noticed something fuzzy on his tongue and was trying to figure out what it was, I was busted. I had to tell him what I was trying to avoid telling him, it had Adagio’s chocolate chai which we had tried a few months ago and had a similar experience. He was done after that butt we had a few laughs.
Thank you jump62359 for giving me a chance to try this fun tea! I also checked out the reviews on Agagio. There was only one not so great review out of ten- A brother gifted it to his sister and she was not impressed but it made me laugh because it’s something I could see my brothers doing.

Before opening presents Christmas morning, I got the kettle ready knowing I was getting this tea. As soon as I opened the can and smelled it, I quickly remembered I’m not always fond of raspberry and chocolate together. I must have picked this because of the decent rating and it was a high stimulant that I was looking for after getting away from coffee.

The handful of times I have had this, I find it most tolerable as a latte hot or iced because it helps mute the smell. 7 months later, the smell is not as strong as it was when I first opened it and my very last cup was the best.

I don’t regret getting this tea because I have happily shared it with those who wanted to try it and liked it but I don’t think I would get it again.

Another tea I split with keychange with our order months ago. This is great iced, tasted like strong sweet iced tea with some fruit without being sweet. Just what I was looking for with our A/C still on the fritz. It was ok hot but I tend to prefer fruit teas iced.

It taste fine but I can’t get past the dry leaf smell. I was going to give to a former coworker who liked it but he left before I got a chance to. My brother thought it smelled like the candy peachie-o’s which seems like an accurate and nicer comparison than I would have used. It seems many people enjoy this it’s just not for me.

This one doesn’t sit well with me either. That smell takes over everything.

Oh Good, I’m glad I’m not the only one.

Lol, I find it tastes and smells like a bad overly fruity gum!

Glad I got a chance to try this because I’m always hearing great things about Laoshan Black blends. I was a little hesitant because of the rose but it was not too rosy. The bergamot was more in the front and very nice. I don’t think it would be one I order because I’m normally not in the mood to drink roses. I kept enough to try a small cup iced and it is lovely and I didn’t notice any rose this time just the crisp and bready. Someday I will place an order, I don’t feel I’ve matured enough on my tea journey to take the time and appreciate Verdant teas enough to merit an order.

The only reason I can write these reviews right now is because I already had them pulled up to review before Steepster started acting up and it is helping me be busy as I wait for the AC guy.

Before today I had not been enjoying this as much as I would have liked. It reminds me of strawberry/cherry chapstick. Today it is wonderfully uplifting iced in this hot humid weather with a wonky AC. I added a little sugar today hoping it would be more pleasant. So perfect I’m about to make another glass and sadly it will be gone.

Bio

I feel I have lost part of my identity.
I was addicted to coffee until I got sick Dec 1 and since then I have had 3 6 cups of coffee(I lost count but it’s not everyday and I don’t enjoy it like I once did). Now all I can think about is tea. I do not know if this is a phase or not but I’m enjoying it.

I’m having fun trying dessert teas right now. It has helped me eat less without even trying and I have lost a few unwanted pounds which surprised me during this past holiday season.

I love Earl Grey, Earl Grey Cream, Vanilla black teas. I like straight blacks I just don’t know how to describe them yet. I have a hard enough time describing flavored teas.

Please don’t pay attention to my notes, my taste changes all the time and sometimes if I only try something once I don’t always get the opportunity for it to grow on me or understand it better.

Maybe this is weird, one of the reasons I do tasting notes is to practice writing. I would like to go back to school before my school money expires and I regret it but I’m not ready yet.

Steepsters is the best community!
I love everyone here :)

I’m a stay at home mom/wife most of the time and work part-time at a local coffee shop.

I’m looking into knitting just so I can make cozy for my Timolino.
