43 Tasting Notes
I got this tea a few months ago, in my first order from Adagio ever. Admittedly when I first got it I didn’t like it at all by itself. I have an incurable sweet tooth and I added loads of milk and hot chocolate mix just to get it to where I could drink it. I haven’t really had it since because I don’t like having to add a lot of frufruy things to my tea.
I suppose my taste has become more refined since then, because I pulled this out tonight and was able to drink it unsweetened. Its delicious and toasty, and now I defiantly can pick up the sweetness in it. Its a nice tea. Not for everyday, but defiantly very nice.
You know, for a very very long time I thought I didn’t like tea. The only experience I’d ever had with it was at summer camp, where they gave us a very weak and sad tasting brew of iced Lipton. (Of course it doesn’t help that at the time my youngish brain assumed the dark liquid was coke, but I digress.) It wasn’t until years later when my dear friend sent me a gift card to Adagio that I would discover, I did in fact, actually like tea.
Now, this isn’t the only tea I’ve tried from Adagio, but it is by far my favorite. I drink about two cups of it every day. I really like that the tea is sweet enough that I don’t have to add anything to it. Extremely drinkable and delicious. Of course, the health benefits don’t hurt anything either.
And that’s just the tea by itself. This tea is also quite good blended with Teavanna’s Youthberry and Adagio’s Mango Green. I’m sure it would also be delicious mixed with other teas, but I’ve yet to try them.
Especially if your someone like me, who’s relatively new to the tea world, I cannot recommend this tea higher.
