10 Tasting Notes

First and foremost, the color of this tisane is awesome! A bright blue when first steeped, and then it becomes violet when you add lemon. Very cool!

At first taste without lemon I wasn’t crazy about the taste. I think with Chai in the name I was expecting more spice. But after drinking it a little more without the expectation of the spice I think it’s growing on me. It’s got a vegetably taste, I’d compare it to a mild corn. With a little bit of lemon juice I think it covered up the herbal taste a little bit.

Definitely interesting, I’m going to give it a few more steeps and see how it goes.

I just found some of this in my tea stash, I forgot how much I like this tea! It’s not a typical Irish Breakfast by any means, but it has a really unique flavor that I enjoy. I’m going to go with what it says on the bag, it has a jammy flavor to it. I think is a great tea for first thing in the morning, especially when it begins getting chilly like it is now.

This is interesting, and not quite what I expected. It’s heavy on the Bergamot, heavier than I expected. I’m a little put off by it at first, but I may try again when I’m in more of a citrusy mood and see what I think then.

drank Blood Orange by Adagio Teas

I actually thought this was pretty decent. It has a nice orange flavor. It may be a little tart, but I could see it being really good cold with a little sugar. I’d buy it again if I got a good deal on it.

drank Gyokuro by Adagio Teas
10 tasting notes

I got a sample of this from Adagio since it’s such an expensive tea. This is my first Gyokuro, but I can see why the price is so high! It’s very smooth and flavorful. I brewed it at about 160 due to recommendations, but I am going to play around with the temperatures a bit to explore it a little bit more.

This is my usual cup (or two, or three) in the morning. Very strong, good enough to get me into gear. I usually have this with a little bit of milk and a half teaspoon of sugar or honey.

I decided to give this a try vs. my usual goto masala chai from Tranquilitea in Plymouth, MI. I made it with a teapsoon of sugar and a little bit of 2% milk. Not bad, but it seems a little heavy on something, maybe the cardamom? I like my usual masala chai better, but this one certainly isn’t terrible. I certainly wouldn’t have a problem drinking it on the regular.
