drank Decaf Strawberry by Adagio Teas
58 tasting notes

I didn’t think I liked fruity teas (with the exception of lemon and honey during a cold) but this tea has converted me. It smells strong, like strawberry candy. So I expected an equally artificial taste. Instead, it tastes like a fresh strawberry. This tea is divine. The black tea base isn’t anything special, in fact, it’s kind of twiggy. But I’ve been looking for a decaffeinated tea that tastes good and this is it. It tastes nice plain, but adding milk and a little bit of sugar sends it into an over the top heavenly crazy place. I’ll be going back for this one again and again. I made a huge Adagio order and this is the only tea that I keep repeating.

Bio

Here are the things I drink: Tea, water, coffee, beer, whiskey, wine.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, but only recently began learning about tea and drinking loose leaf.

I prefer unflavored tea to flavored, tea leaves to tisanes, but I’m not inflexible and will try nearly anything.

I’m still learning, so thank you in advance for your patience and your help.

Also, I had to come up with a way to quantify my ratings because I was being really inconsistent:

100-90: Delicious, must keep in stock.

89-80: Excellent, a definite reorder.

79-70: Good, an occasional reorder.

69-50: Pleasant, but it was a one night stand.

49-30: Not good, but drinkable.

29-20: Bad, but I finished the cup.

19-10: Terrible. Couldn’t finish a cup.

10 and below: Undrinkable, requires mouthwash and counseling.
