drank (Black) Currant by Adagio Teas
58 tasting notes

I thought this tea was fine, taster two quite enjoyed it. I’ve only had currants dried or in jam, so I’m no currant expert, but with added sugar this tea tasted more like hard candy than fresh anything. Which I didn’t expect considering the amazing fresh strawberriness Adagio can deliver. It’s ok. The base tea, as with all the bases on Adagio’s flavored blacks, is unremarkable.

Profile

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.
