366 Tasting Notes
Major citrus aroma coming through as it steeps. The taste is simply WOW. The blood orange is really coming through as is the white tangerine….soooo good (I may be drooling). Honestly I can’t really taste the lemongrass which is shocking since it had such a strong smell prior to the infusion. I’m usually not a fan of citrus teas, but this I like and that is saying something.
This tea was delish! I brewed a cup early this morning (like 1am early). The sweetness of the tea comes out not only as you steep but right down to the last sip. This was super yummy and I might need to get more asap (only purchased a sample size this time!!
Well, I was going to start getting myself together for the day…but then I noticed my Adagio tea order had arrived! Well, I had to try this right away. I love the aroma of the mint as this tea steeps. As others have mentioned there is just that super subtle scent of chocolate…yum! The taste is just wow. Love how the mint flavors stay on my tongue as I’m drinking. So great!
Brewing a cup of this to get my day started. The aroma is amazing….I can smell all the berry flavors of the Sweet Fruit Garden with just a hint of the peaches and mint from the Scarlet Cloud. The taste is likewise amazing an even blend of tart and sweet! Just the right balance to wake me up, but still let me feel a bit mellow.
I can really taste the sweet in this tea. So much so that I only feel the need to add the slightest bit of sugar. Has a lovely smell while steeping and it is just what I need today (I forgot everything ie lunch and breakfast snack).
This tea is a pretty good substitute for my usual morning cup of coffee. I really like the nutty/chocolate smells that come out of this tea as it steeps. Best part is that carries over into the flavor and adds in just enough spice to give that extra little kick to get my day started. (I also add in two sugar cubes to sweeten to my liking.)
Just dropped a bag of this in my cup for an afternoon chill out. It has been one of those days and I need something soothing or else someone might loose an arm. ANYWAY…to me this tea has a nice smooth flavor and a even mix of rooibos and vanilla flavors. Now if only I had some steamed soy milk to mix in here….yum! But alas simply the tea with a few sugar cane crystals.
Drinking this again this morning….hoping the peppermint can help me jump start my day. It’s very strong so I tend to add in some Silver Needle (also a Teavana tea) and 2 or 3 sugar cubes. This morning it’s all about the peppermint, with a cube of sugar….yeah it’s going to be one of those days!
Pretty good pick me up in the morning. I find the minty flavor helps settle my stomach when a migraine is looming. Be sure to add in some sugar or Teavana’s Silver Needle (1/2 a teaspoon) to cut the tea as it can sometimes be rather strong.
There is a beautiful mix of the vanilla and rooibos as the tea steeps. Added to the tea I use a small amount of German rock cane. The flavor is light on the vanilla and very heavy on the rooibos (will have to add more Honeybush Vanilla next time). I’m not unsatisfied with this blend…it’s really tasty.
