40 Tasting Notes
This was the first oolong tea I’ve tried.So maybe I’m not giving it enough credit. But it was a bit more mellow than I was expecting. After getting use to it, it has a nice almond after taste. It’s not something I would drink everyday, but if I wanted something to mellow me out this would be the tea I’d drink.
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!
