117 Tasting Notes

Reminds me strongly of cherry Kool-Aid, but with a tart finish. It’s okay, I guess. I’m going to finish the pitcher (I’m drinking it iced) but I’m not sure I’ll make it again.

Second cup today. I let it sit while I took an hour-long nap, but yay for insulated cups. It’s not super-fresh, but it still tastes good.

Om nom nom nom nom. (I know, lame tasting note. But this tea is always good and I don’t really have anything more to say about it. Sorry.)

Honeybush, to me, tastes like cedar chips and honey. Which probably sounds gross, but it’s actually a nice flavor. Adagio’s honeybush is a pretty good example of the tea. It’s sweeter than the other variety I’ve tried. It’s very nice. I like it.

This really is a lovely tea. It’s especially nice now that it’s fall and apples are in season. I drank this cup while out running errands with Mom after lunch. Thank goodness for thermal cups!

This is okay iced. It’s just not a very exciting tea. I drank the whole box (iced) but couldn’t really get into it. This final cup was consumed first thing this morning, to take my meds with.

I love this tea. It really is a melange, and I can taste every element of it in each sip. It’s fascinating to drink, and very tasty.

I like this. It’s tart, but not as tart as most tisanes that have hibiscus in them. This is a good thing. For a fruit tisane it’s actually pretty mellow. I don’t think it’ll become a favorite, but it’ll be a nice change once in a while. I think it would be delicious over ice. I might try that tomorrow…

This is okay for a decaf. I’d much rather be drinking the caffeinated version though. :(

Bio

I’m a thirtysomething college student (psychology major). Love to read and knit.

Tea preferences: I must admit that I’m not big on subtlety. I like my tea strong and for the flavor to whack me upside the head. I enjoy complex teas, but I just don’t have a sensitive enough palate for the subtle. I know, I’m a heathen…
