4 Tasting Notes

68

One of the Tea Palace’s holiday teas, this smells horrifyingly strong as soon as you open the tin — mostly reminiscent of very sweet cherries, for some reason. But the flavour and smell mellow out after being steeped, and even more so after being doctored with milk and sugar. Not as cloying as one might think upon first smelling it, but still quite sweet and fruity. Not one to drink on a regular basis, as it seems quite easy to get overloaded on flavour-wise, but definitely one of their more ‘fun’ ones.

This is one of the flavoured teas Adagio puts out that actually tastes like what it claims to be. Good with a lot of sugar, not necessarily milk. I got it as a part of a holiday sampler and it’s one I intend to keep buying on its own.

Much like Adagio’s other fall/winter teas, this one is greatly improved with cream and sugar. You get a candy can smell far more than taste — taste-wise a little sugar goes a long way in it, and it gets very sweet very quickly. Not bad for a brew at work, but I wouldn’t make a whole pot at home.

I will admit to having a soft spot for this tea because I drank it fairly regularly right up to my first trip to the UK a few years ago. It tastes absolutely nothing like pumpkin, but I’m not really bothered.
