521 Tasting Notes

This smells mainly of hibiscus. I’m also one of the rare people on here who really loves the tart flavor. This somehow tastes more of cherry than anything else. There is a bit of raspberry in there too, but it is pretty artificial tasting. It reminds me a bit of the forest berries tea by Adagio without the black base. It isn’t terrible, just not the very best. I’d say I’d drink it just for something fruity.

This smells so familiar somehow. It smells like my grandma’s home when I was younger, in a way. It smells like Christmas and horchata with my girlfriends. The teabags themselves don’t smell the most awesome, but brewed I think I’m going to enjoy this. I think that store teas get a bad rap. I actually enjoy most herbal store bought brands.
I think I’m in the “I enjoy roasted chicory club”. This is very calming. I was expecting more black pepper flavor for whatever reason, but it isn’t too evident. This is plenty sweet without adding anything, but reminds me of a chai base meant for milk. I really like this one!
More grocery store herbals for me!

So I’m in love with my new tea kettle! :3 It boils water so fast. What in the world was I doing not using one of these?!
This tea is actually really good. I bet it’d be great cold. It tastes like peach and it is somehow not really artificial tasting. It reminds me of peach rings. I’m loving these herbal blends.

I’m going to be reducing the amount of caffinated tea I’m drinking, so herbals it is! My husband picked out a tea kettle for me today. It’s cute!
This actually tastes almost exactly like Adagio’s Berry blues tea. I really liked it. It mainly tastes like tart, fresh berries with some hibiscus. Pretty great for me!

Sipdown! I’m really sad to see this one go. It is easily my favorite plain black tea.
4sec: Very roasted, sesame smelling with a golden liquor.
4sec: Caramel, chocolate, roasted almond skin notes with a deep golden amber liquor.
6sec: Mostly caramel and almond notes this time.

I just bought some more of this myself. :)

Sipdown! I had this one last night while having movie time. I used a little extra leaf and it just brought out all the awesome flavors in this one. It was even better as it cooled. I really loved the hojicha in this and it really blended well with the other flavors. It really made me want to try some plain hojicha. 52 teas has always had blends that I love and everyone should give them a try!

I really have to recommend this as one of my favorite teas from Adagio. It is very straightforward, the tin is beautiful, and you get a large quantity for a reasonable price. The base for this black tea is much more mellow than some of Adagio’s other flavored blacks. The hazelnut is the main flavor, followed by the black tea, and has hints of cream. Basic, but tasty!

sipdown! So I’m going to finish of the last of this sample today. This tea has just been wonderful. I think this may be one of my very favorite green teas. I’m using Western style brewing again today; which actually gives extremely good results. The flavor is the same as the other day. Lots of peas, greens, sweetness, and lychee. Not a tea to be missed.

Western style brewing today! This is such a wonderful tea. It has lots of bright, clear notes, along with snap pea, watermelon, leafy greens, lychee, and general sweetness. The lychee notes are really prominent today and are very intriguing. I really loved this sample and I’m glad I have ~2 cups left!
