42 Tasting Notes
I have been a huge fan of matcha for a while now. When Adagio started selling it I couldn’t have been happier. I managed to finally get my hands on a sample. Let me say I was not disappointed! It has a rich matcha flavor that I know and love. It’s much better iced than hot in my opinion. I like how if you let it set for a bit, the flavor seems to grow even stronger. The only thing I would say that I disliked was the fact that the price is a bit much. Especially for the sample where there wasn’t a lot for the price. Other than that the taste is defiantly quality.
It’s been a good while since I’ve reviewed anything so I thought now would be a good time. The weather is getting colder and it’s the perfect time for a good cup of tea. This is the first winter me and Makayla get to spend together!! With the holidays coming up it certainly puts me in a good mood.
Makayla bought this tea here while back and this is our first time drinking it. It has a unique smell too it, slightly offensive at first but after a couple whiffs not so bad. The taste is crisp with a dry after note. Yet underneath all there’s a sweetness I cant quite put my finger on. It’s an interesting blend I must say I neither overly love it or hate it. It’s something I would grab on occasion and enjoy.
By it’s self I am not a huge fan of the tea. It’s a bit bland and in others it comes off as too sweet. For me I prefer it when it’s mixed with other teas. It really shines then but by itself not so much. By far though it is not the worse I have tried and don’t mind it on occasion.
This is a very crisp and mellow white tea. A first it tasted a bit dry compared, to some of the other white tea I have tried. After a while though I realized it was just very subtle in it’s taste. Nonetheless it’s very good and quite refreshing. It’s scent has a nice appealing aroma once it is brewed. It’s a nice relaxing tea I might add, it helped me unwind after a long week at work.
I got this back when it had first came out on Adagio. Thus far I have really enjoyed all the blueberry blends that I have tried. This one was another one that did not disappoint. It has a very distinct flavor with a blueberry aftertaste that really appeals to me.What I also love is that it is not overly fruity or tart, which would have been a no go with me. I can see this being a frequent attendant in my tea stash.
As much as I love pear flavored things and white tea. This did not do it for me. It has a very off taste that sits on the tongue that’s not very pleasing at all. The taste can be compared to the taste of rotten fruit. But that’s just my opinion to someone else it might be something else entirely.
That aside, whoa I have not been on here in ages!! Mostly because I have been uber busy. Plus I have not been drinking a lot of tea due to the hot weather that has been soaring as of late. That aside I am now out from underneath my father’s roof and living with my fiancee’. We’ve been moved out for two or three weeks now. She’s been down here for almost a month now, after having moved out of her parent’s home in Ohio. It’s been great having her down here and so close. Fixing up the rent house and having to buy things for the house has been very hectic. While there were certain things I didn’t have to buy, there was a lot that needed to be bought still yet. Through all of that we somehow managed to get settled in and have gotten the chaos under control. Thus far actually having to pay bills has not become too overwhelming. Now that we’ve put down roots here I am actually enjoying my time on my own. Which helps having her here, because there’s no way I would adjust to a new place so soon. Especially after having lived in my old house for almost 10 plus years.
It’s safe to safe that I am probably not a fruity tea drinker. I didn’t think I would be and after trying this it was confirmed. Like it’s namesake it had a very orangey smell as well as taste. It was far too sweet. About the only thing I did like was the color it gave off.
I preferred this one much more! While I haven’t tried all of them yet this will probably be my favorite. It’s very crisp and refreshing and overall has a nice taste. I’m becoming more of a white tea drinker every day or so it would seem. Which is kinda funny considering I didn’t think it would ever appeal to me. Since I’m mainly a black tea drinker.
I’ve been curious about the unsweetened iced teas for a while now. I finally got around to purchasing a couple. Personally I do not like unsweetened tea, so I added some sugar to this. I didn’t entirely dislike it but it wasn’t my favorite either. The aftertaste was probably what I liked the most to be honest. At the same time I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I hated it. In the future I might try it again, just to see if my opinion will have changed.
I really adore this teapot!! It’s easy to use and comes in handy. Now as others have said the color advertised is not the color it actually is. It’s more of a grape color than a plum color. Nevertheless I couldn’t be more happier with my purchase! I would consider buying another in the future.I also like how the scent of the tea doesn’t cling to the pot. With less than a few rinsings the smell fades away and best of all doesn’t cling to the infuser.
