Meet the stronger, bolder and more sophisticated cousin of Adagio’s Green Needle.
Both teas seem pretty similar with pleasant bitterness and refreshing taste, Green Needle being cheaper though. Kai Hua Crescendo tastes more refined, has more pronounced flowery notes mixed with stronger bitterness. I don’t have any Green Needle left to compare them side-by-side but I do remember it being woodier and spicier than this one.
Overall I like Kai Hua Crescendo a little better but would definitely repurchase both of them in the future.
