5775 Tasting Notes
Love. this. Thank you tastybrew for picking some of this up while wandering the island. I seriously want to go to hawaii some day but this is a bit of a consolation prize ;) I am enjoying this one a ton! I managed to get a couple steeps out of this as well and it continues to be a delicious cup of sweet delicious assam. It’s not like taiwanese assams beyond not being malty :) I really just love this. i dunno what else to say hahaha
yum. cold tea. not. I made this morning after getting woken up early for issues…that are still not resolved, which has caused me to get no work done today outside of this issue. It also means i don’t have a whole lot of time for tea. I brewed this one up right away and got to drink most of it warm..but now it’s cold and sad. I also have no water in my house until they do whatever they’re doing with the water mains today so i’m trying to stretch out the water that i put in the kettle and the brita and a couple uh pots so that i could have tea today lol.
Still like this one, so it appears my tastebuds are only on strike when it comes to 49. :(
Terri sent this my way to let me try out the black version of this since i have the rooibos version in my house. I’m happy to say i actually prefer the rooibos version. This is nice, and i’ll likely use my last two bags from terri to try it with a bit of milk, but there’s something about the rooibos that makes this taste more pumpkin-y than the black base. Still, not a bad little bagged cup :)
sipdown! (167) that’s right… i was a drinking fiend today. Good thing too since i’m likely to get another package or two before the year is out. I figured i might as well drink this one too since i had sweet lullaby this evening which is almost the same tea. I think i prefer this one just a little since the hibiscus isn’t nearly as strong..though i like the intense ginger in the other a little more haha. This is a bit better balanced cup imo. Thanks for sharing terri!
Sipdown! I made this to drink while making gingerbread snacking cake. I have to say THIS is the right amount of ginger….however the. Hibiscus in this is too much, making it a really tart piece of tea. A little sweetner goes a long way with this one. I quite like it, but I need less hibby…and I don’t mind hibby.
thanks cavocorax! Admittedly, i am not an adagio fangirl. While i love the packaging, i find 90% of all the teas of theirs that i have tried, to be pretty much meh. I don’t like the base for their black teas and on the whole, for the time and effort involved in getting their teas to canada, i have sooooo many other options that are easier.
all that being said, (of course) this is a tasty blend. I wish the base was a little tastier but i can deal with that. blackberry, vanilla, cream this is! :)
mmm thanks cavocorax i made this as a super extra strength latte and man it’s good! I’m not sure i’d like this straight, but hell this is delicious as a latte!
I have to say…this isn’t really mint chocolate. it’s after eight. Slight distinction but it’s there. :) (169!)
cough i tried. and failed. Sorry Cavo! Not to worry the remaining part of your sample will go to a good home. While i love the base in this, as i do most of the A&D teas, i just cannot get past that whole bergamot thing. this is not a kinda sort of EG…THIS IS AN EG! BOLD! IN YOUR FACE! not for Sil… heh glad to have gotten to try it and make sure though :)
