drank Sweet Potato Pie by Adagio Teas
807 tasting notes

Thank you Amanda for this sample in the cute little tin!
Its not what I was hoping for but I had very low expectations and therefore I am actually quite pleased!
I would really like to try Lupicia’s Sweet Potato Pie and may grab some soon. Its no secret that Adagio and I are not in love. I rarely find a tea from them I do like. I think Fujian Rain is my favorite. Needless to say – this ain’t bad!
Its not all that sweet potato tasting let alone PIE tasting but its not yucky at all and its really quite pleasant as a black tea.
It almost is like a Verdant tea (GASP I SAID THAT?) but only in the sense that it tastes like a nice black with some lovely natural flavors coming through of sweet potato. HOWEVER these flavors are not truly natural. I am struggling to make this make sense.
And by no means does this compare to a Verdant tea.
But what I am trying to say is I would not have guessed this for an overly artificial flavored tea of Sweet Potato Pie. I would more so think it a somewhat nice but not excellent quality black tea that had some natural nuances of sweet potato and a light bit of non natural flavoring to boost it.
BAH never mind – this is pretty decent. I will hang onto it and drink the rest but wold not purchase.
Thanks again Amanda :)

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/

I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
