1167 Tasting Notes
This is definitely an interesting chai due to the bay leaves. It’s quite nice, but I find the base requires milk, so I still prefer my MF Chandernagor.
I’m drinking this tonight because I went to Costco today and couldn’t resist buying 1 litre of whipping cream. OMG. I also went to Ikea to get things for cleaning the new and old places, and picked up a frother. So. whipping cream frothed with maple syrup, and chai poured over top.
So decadent. So delicious. So recommended. :)
Some SoHo Blend from Dexter3657!
Thank you, Dexter. :)
This tea is very similar to Florence, but it has pink flowers in it and also coconut. It’s pretty good, but I am not completely enamoured. I might be having an off day though, so it’s good I have more from VariaTEA so I can try again!
Win! So good. Thanks for posting about it on FB, Amariel. That was the motivation I needed to drink this.
Not sure I’d get it again, just because I love the Caramel Vanilla Assam so much, but this tea is nice. Very delicate, the base shines through, there’s some coconut, some sweet fruitiness, and yum.
Drinking it completely plain. :)
Resteeps pretty good too.
My browser crashed and I lost my note. Sad panda. :(
This tea is really interesting. The ingredients really made me do a double take… I mean, caramel, rose, and rosemary? What?
But the tea is pretty good! A little floral for me because I ended up with a whole rose bud in my steeping basket, but a really interesting combination of flavours.
Thank you for suggesting this one, VariaTEA! Or did I suggest it? I don’t remember anymore. :)
Ahhh…. Sil-vert prize caramel matcha. Thank you, Sil!
Something is wrong with my taste or something, because this isn’t as caramelly as I remember, either.
Oh well. It’s still good! Definitely get a sweet taste from it. And this one IS caramel, unlike the butter flavour of the Special Offer caramel matcha. :)
Oh no! This is the first Adagio tea that’s gone bitter on me. What did I do wrong?
It’s supposed to be blackberry and vanilla, and it smells really nice dry. It smelled really nice steeping as well, but I added a touch of sugar (felt like it needed it) and some almond milk, and BAM! First sip is not quite right for me.
But! As I sip through the cup, the blackberry and vanilla come forth. Not that I can identify blackberry, but there’s a nice berry flavour and there’s definitely vanilla, and some creaminess there.
So yes, I’m up and waiting for an online meeting to start. I’m ready for work, except I’m wearing cat cuddling clothes because I don’t want to end up going to work just coated. Eating lasagna, drinking tea, the sun is shining and I have my 3" of morning sun coming through the window. This has the potential to be a good day!
Oh shoot, and because I didn’t do it first thing, I forgot to thank Shmiracles for the lovely teas! :) Thank you!
Hmm. AKA Rooibos Cream.
Yeah, IDK, VariaTEA. It’s not quite rooibos, but the rooibos is very very present. Of course, it’s screaming hot at the moment, so it might change as it cools down. Too bad I need to go sleep now. I might update in the morning (if I remember), how the tea changes when cold.
Better tasting note later, for sure though.
Sadly this tea doesn’t do it for me. Still, I’m glad Shmiracles gave me the opportunity to try it, as I’m pretty sure I would have purchased it.
The tea is thin. The amaretto flavour is present, and accurate, but it is thin. This might be because amaretto = coffee for me. We always used to spike our coffee with it when we went camping (Yes, even as kids. I know, I know. Mom and dad would put ~1 tsp in a coffee or hot chocolate for us so we were drinking a “grown up” drink.). So those flavours are irrevocably linked.
So while this might be a good tea for some people, as the flavour itself is really nice, it’s not a tea for me. The almond tea I have and prefer is La Naissance by Fauchon. Almondy birthday cake.
