3707 Tasting Notes
yep.. i like this one better than adagio’s but mostly because this one gives the sense of “cream” rather than being an artificial like tea + cream…if that makes sense? I also like the cream flavour in this one a little more since it doesn’t remind me of vanilla. I think this would probably be a lot of fun to add to other….oh man maybe i should combine this + orange lapacho… hmmmmm that could work..

I will be the first to admit that i am not a fan of most of the black bases that Adagio uses. Courtney’s comment about tea gwewkerwekjrh’s cream reminded me that this one was in the box, so it was the perfect time to do a quick mini comparison of this one and the one from tea G.
this one? it’s sort of a combination of vanilla and cream… it’s a little on the fake side, but not so much that i can’t enjoy it. Also, the flavouring hides the base a little, which makes me happy. Nothing i need to buy agan but not as bad as a bunch of adagion teas i’ve had that weren’t fan blends
I picked this one out since it’s down to the last little bit of it and i didn’t want the tea to get any more crushed than it kind of already was. Plus, i’m game for trying things i don’t always love…that’s part of the fun of a TTB (wait till you see what i’m going to drink later…willingly…heh)
I’m not getting a lot of blackberry out of this one, but i can taste the basil and it’s an interesting addition to the tea. White’s aren’t usually my thing, but in this cup it’s actually a good pairing with the basiland lemon. I just wish the blackberry was a little more present :)
…..well so much for getting to florida today. Up side? I can drink all the teas in the travelling teabox today so that when i get back, it will be a quick thing to pack it up and get it out to variatea. sooo incoming flux of a million small cups of tea and tasting notes!
I rather like this one. It’s a decent base with just a bit of berry poking through. Not something i would have picked up on my own, though i suppose i did consider it when i was in Victoria. :) Happy to get to try it and i’m enjoying the little cup i made :) I’m doing my best not to finish anything in the box unless there’s something with only 1 cup left heh
second really quick matcha latte…..this is maple syrup flavouring to me. It’s not maple syrup in it’s pure form. I took a quick taste from the syrup we have here after drinking this to confirm. it IS damn tasty though, and i can see adding this to other matcha for a delicious maple taste.
Final Count: 138 (which means, dear readers that EVEN with the 13 teas i’m picking up in Florida…i’m only at 151. Not that it counts since they’re not here and my official feb month end is 138…it’s still awesome to know that what will arrive, won’t put me crazily behind in my sipdown goals for March….well at least until the BBB Box arrives lol)
worse tasting note ever…but that’s what happens when your other half says casually.. uh there’s a bunch of milk to finish off before we leave… want a BIG glass?
uh….. i can make two really quick matcha lattes i guess…
flavour one – this one distinctive… this is for sure NOT orange and is most assuredly mandarin. Adding it to milk though, makes me want orange to get an orange creamsicle flavour. I can’t remember if i’ve had orange though… anyway. on the whole this is pretty good but not likely a reorder…but if you’re looking for mandarin…this is it!
