249 Tasting Notes
Mild flavor, not strong. A bit tart… Not sweet so much as tasting like berries without the sweetness.
It has a long finish. The finish is more blueberry than the sip.
A nice enough tisane for getting in my water total for the day, but if I wasn’t disallowed caffeine and was able to drink regular teas I’d not bother with this.
Not bad, but nothing to yell about, either. I have to limit my caffeine now so I tried some tisanes from Adagio; this was one of them.
As a changeup from the straight water I drink all day it’s good. But it’s not something I’d be sitting around and think “Hmm, some Pina Colada tisane sounds good…” about.
This is an earthy Assam. Gives the mental tone of reddish-brown. Slightly burnt tasting, but not overwhelming… just enough of the typical Assam edge to let you know that’s what you’re drinking. It’s mildly astringent.
It’s finish is mostly in the back of the throat, that same dark flavor as the mouthful.
Maybe it’s my taste buds today but I’m not impressed with this tea. It’s rather thin, not very tasteful. What it has it a flat wheat flavor. It calls for sweetener just to give it another flavor for more depth. It has more of an after-taste than what I’d call a finish.
If there was more to the sample I might play around with temperatures and times, but there’s not.
I’ve actually had this a few times but am just now getting around to rating.
It’s very yummy. The smell is malty, honey-ish, with warm rusty undertones. The taste has that warmth and redness rather than more burnt or black tastes of most black teas. It has a short finish. It is very satisfying and light. Not a heavy tea at all, in case blacks are usually feeling too strong or dark to you. It’s very easy to like.
