296 Tasting Notes

I really enjoyed drinking this. It didn’t remind me at all of the pu-erhs I have tried in the past, which all had a much more pungent flavor and a bit of fishy flavor in some of the first steepings. This was much sweeter, with no fish to be found!

I really enjoyed this tea, though I would not say it is the best white I have ever tasted. It does hold up well to many steepings when brewed as directed, and each was delicious. They were very light and sweet as a whole, with no additives.

The berry and hazelnut are very distinct here, which is nice! It sets the flavor apart from a typical fruity blend. There is a bit of a sweetness to it as well which worked nicely. I highly recommend this to people who like fruity teas, but this one happens to not rock my world a ton, even though it seems like it should.

drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana

This is the best earl grey I have ever had. I am not a fan of most others, as it is very light on the bergamot. I don’t taste the creamy notes specifically, but I imagine it smooths out the bergamot for me. Normally, bergamot makes it taste almost soapy it is so sharply citrus. This was wonderful!

drank Rooibos Caramel by Adagio Teas

There is a very good sugary feel to this, and a distinctive caramel flavor. This is best hot, with a bit of milk. However, it is likely a tea many brands would do just as well.

I enjoyed this tea a lot. I wish that the oolong flavor would be a bit more prominent, but the orange with a bit of spice was very pleasant. As my cup cooled down it was just as tasty, but the orange became the primary flavor. I definitely prefer this hot, but am thankful that it doesn’t become a terrible tea experience if it cools!

drank Hazelnut by Adagio Teas

This is very tasty, and has a very bold nutty flavor. It is one of the few non-chai teas that I prefer with milk, to give the nuttiness a bit of creaminess as well. It isn’t one of my favorites, but I will enjoy what I have of it.

drank Sunrise in Tibet by T Salon

This is a really standout flavored black tea. The citrus is very pleasant, and easily detected, but there is also a sweetness that comes from chocolate and vanilla flavors too that makes this one particularly spectacular!

drank Vanilla Green by Adagio Teas

I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. I wasn’t really expecting a whole lot, and some vanilla flavors taste incredibly fake. Not so, here. When it is hot the scent wafts up and it smells absolutely delightful! Upon first sip, the vanilla is very rich and pleasant and plays better with the green tea taste than I could have ever anticipated. Definitely tastes like dessert in a cup!
