69 Tasting Notes
Oh my goodness does this smell like wine and sangria when you open the tin and start to steep!! I drank this at work this afternoon and was very worried that someone was going to get a whiff and whisk me off for a drug and alcohol test!!! I drank this iced and found it to be very flavorsome and to taste very much like sangria (but not as much as it smelt!!). I got some good fruity, winey flavors but I must admit, it did taste a little chemically at first. I’ll enjoy finishing off the 100g that I purchased but don’t think I’ll be back for more after that and I definitely won’t be drinking any more of it at work!!!
I received this as one of my sample teas on my last order and I will be ordering more! This was delicious! I didn’t bother with milk or sugar and am glad I didn’t! There was definitely some good hints of sweet potato and bread and I personally think this would make an amazing afternoon tea as its not astringent at all and is quite soft in its flavors, a good afternoon pick me up! Yum!
I really like this tea – I wasn’t too sure about a watermelon tea but this is super refreshing iced. Yes, I agree there is a slight artificial taste but I’m happy to ignore that because it is just so refreshing!! I can see myself drinking a lot of this through the summer season (which seems to have stated already in Southern California – 102 here today… BOOOOOO!!)
So I decided to get a sample tin of this in my last Adagio order and to be honest its pretty good, not reorder good, but still I’ve enjoyed drinking through this tin. This tea tastes of vanilla, cream, and blueberry and is pretty tasty with a touch of milk but it seems a little too bland for my liking.
