36 Tasting Notes
Recently I ordered a bunch of tea from Adagio and just recently got it in. Ever since I first opened the bag and smelled Sirius I kept wanting to try it. With the humid weather here, hot tea rarely mixes with it. Last night after it cooled down I finally resigned myself to make some. In the bag Sirius smells divine! Like red hots or cinnamon candy in general. It has a mellow taste at first, but seemed to sharpen the longer it was in my cup. There’s definite sharp notes of oriental spice with a lemony aftertaste. I have a feeling that this tea will become a favorite of mine. It’s just so good!!
I would have to say that this is my first successful tea blend I have made. I was able to bring out a nice even blend between the lapsang and the tiger eye. It’s quite smoky yet evenly so, which is smoothed out by the tiger eye and earl grey moonlight. Needless to say I find it absolutely delicious and I cant stay away!
I was a bit skeptical about trying this because I’ve never had white tea before. Plus the smell in the bag was a little off putting. However upon tasting it I had a way better opinion of this tea. In the cup the smells like cinnamon rolls and even tastes like them too! It doesn’t need much sugar just a small amount will do. It might also be good with a little honey.
This is another great blend that is on my favorites list. It smells so good in the bag and tastes better in my tea mug! I was a bit skeptically about it at first, since of the vanilla. I’m not too big on vanilla. However blended with Earl Grey Bravo, and Blackberry it’s surprisingly pleasant!
