100 Tasting Notes
When I gave this a smell from the tin I jumped back; it smells horrible. But as soon as it hit some hot water, man did it taste great. A nice, light tropical flavor.
A nice smooth Oolong tea.
I liked this slightly better than the Irish Breakfast I had yesterday. It definitely has a more robust and complex flavor which I like.
I didn’t find anything super special about this tea but it was a really good black tea. I don’t drink too many black teas hot; I think some lemon would made it perfect.
This was one of the very first loose leaf tea’s I ever bought. The first steep is always a tricky one because if you over steep it, it will taste very bitter. I recommend going with no more than 3mins. Excellent cherry flavor.
So I’m not sure if I’ve ever eaten a tangerine before but I know what the flavor is and this tea has it. It follows suite with the other Adagio white teas I’ve tried thus far, a light tea with subtle hints of the fruit in it. I also lowered it’s recommended steep time of 7mins to 5mins per reccomendations of fellow steepersters.
Gave this tea a second try this morning changing the amount I used and the steep time and though it did taste better it still wasn’t what I was looking for.
The few Earl Greys that I’ve had I really liked and I was hoping the same would be true for this one as well. I’m happy to say I wasn’t disappointed one bit. It has a that nice citrus taste that I think Earl Grey should have but not over powering. This will be one that I definitely buy a bigger tin of.
Here is a video of the kids and I giving it a try for the first time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEDWRirmMZM
I was excited to try this tea as pears are one of my favorite fruits to eat, at least out of a can. But unfortunately I wasn’t that impress with my first pot. As always I’ll be giving it a few more tries but my first impression was meh.
