180 Tasting Notes

I’ve yet to actually try this with breakfast, because it’s a bit strong for my early-morning sensitive tummy. Even the smell gives me a bit of a stomachache… Though, it does taste much smoother than it smells. Once I’ve woken up a bit, and had something to eat, it’s a lovely bold pick-me-up. I’ve tried it with milk, cream, soy milk, and almond milk (separately, of course) but I guess milky tea is just not for me. Unless I’m doing something wrong…

Interesting. A bit smoky for my tastes, but not too off-putting. I’ve been nursing a small pot for about three hours now… watching movies on my first Sunday off in almost 3 years.

Oh, don’t give up on flavored teas, there are a lot of great ones. Check out 52teas or Golden Moon – both have great flavored teas that don’t taste artificial.

There are some great flavored teas out there. Just be patient and you will find them.

I think I might just be sensitive to something in these teas. I get a strong, bitter, almost chemical taste in my Adagio flavored teas (except the Cinnamon) whereas my husband, who thinks all tea “tastes like hot water,” doesn’t notice anything out of the ordinary. But thanks, I’ll be sure to give something else a try.

Tried brewing more tea for a shorter amount of time to counteract the bitterness, but it now has very little flavor. Which, again, is exactly the problem I had with the Adagio Vanilla. So far, Cinnamon seems to be the only Adagio flavored tea that likes me. (Though, last night’s cup grew on me after I got past the bitter taste. There’s still a chance!)

Was trying to conserve the rest of my sample, and consequentially ended up with a very weak cup this morning. Can’t decide if that was an even bigger waste… =/

Bought this solely for iced tea. It smells amazing, but I got a real bitter taste with my first sip… the same problem I had with the Adagio Vanilla. Seems the flavored teas might be a bit temperamental.

My first cup of hot tea in months. I like this so much better than the other black teas I’ve had hot.

Another back-log. I love this so much that I’ve been forcing myself to drink some of the other teas in my cupboard to make it last longer.
