drank Decaf Vanilla by Adagio Teas
183 tasting notes

I think I finally managed to find the perfect balance of time, temperature, and measurement last night, so that there was no unpleasant bitterness to this at all. So I can now rate the tea on its intended flavor.

It smells heavenly… like marshmallows. Even my husband, who is rather apathetic about tea, says he wishes it tasted like it smelled. The taste, however, is decidedly meh. It’s somewhat sweet, but even with a bit of sugar, it just doesn’t wow me in the way the smell leads me to believe it might. Disappointment.

I’m a habitually high-rater. Maybe I’m easily-impressed.

90-100 – A – I love these teas, and want to keep them in rotation.

80-89 – B – These teas are good, and I would never turn them down.

70-79 – C – These teas are sort of middle of the road. Drinkable, but would never be my first choice.

60-69 – D – I don’t like these teas, but they are palatable under certain conditions.

0-59 – E – Do. Not. Want.
