956 Tasting Notes
Having second thoughts about the perfume level in this tea. You would think the perfume would dissipate a little once the tea is brewed and the leaves removed from the cup (or premisis?). Not the case with this one. I think I am going to blend it with something else to cut the flavor a little. I do see this making fabulous iced tea when blended a little.
Drinking this because I need to use it up. There is a new Breakfast Tea in my life. This is good, but it is just slightly too smokey for me. I think I will add some milk next time…or did I say that the last time I drank this, and I forgot? Maybe lighter on the tea?
Now after going over my last note on this….I liked milk in the first steep, and the second steep without. See, tasting notes really help!
I found the Custom brand. Now I have a real space to put all of the crazy concoctions I like to drink. None of my blends are official at Adagio, so this is where all my blends will land.
Listening to my kids practice music and sipping a cup of this blend sweetened, and with milk. This one definitely falls into the favorites, but I still like the Chocolate Mint Black tea from The Tea Table slightly better.
I recently purchased this as a sample from Upton. I thought the flavor profile sounded like it would be perfect for me. I was surprised at how much of the tea looks to be yellow tipped. Also, it brews up into a lovely flowery smooth black. I would say the smokiness in this one leans toward a berry note. Definitely enjoyable.
This one definitely requires milk. I was surprised at the tea leaves in that they were kind of chopped up. I know..I am a breakfast tea noob, because it looked exactly as most breakfast teas look in pictures. I guess I am a full leaf gal, who prefers tea (that is not bakery-type dessert flavor) without milk. This one reminds me of coffee.
I think I am going to go with Mincing Lane for now….at least until something better comes along.
