Drinking this right now cause I have a sore throat that is keeping me awake. I have always loved this tea as a night time tea though. Not as much actual tea in it but a few herbals to dim it out. There is not enough caffine in this to actually affect me so its nice at night. Flavor wise its nice. A very clean taste to it. I tend to brew it kinda long since its mostly herbal if I don’t brew it a while it tends to taste a little weaker than I like.

After having been focusing on Japanese greens and various oolongs for a while, I decided to go back to an old favorite. I was going to have some Silver Needle, but was nearly out, so I opted for the new style white bai mu dan. Flavorful and smooth as expected and just what I was looking for on a Sunday night.

Very nice but i prefer the Mandarin Green instead. Watch the steep time carefully; over steeping this tea will turn the subtle flavor into a disgusting brew

drank Cocomint Green by Adagio Teas
865 tasting notes

ok… WHERE’S MY SPOON??? This is by far my favorite dessert tea. I’m picky about my dessert teas. I don’t like purely rooibos or herbal teas. I don’t like a tea where the flavoring is so strong that I can’t taste the tea.

The second I opened the tin I wanted to eat it. I’m pleasantly surprised to smell chocolate 1st because pepperment can be very over powering, folowed by the peppermint, and then last the sencha- but it’s definitely there.

I steeped 2.25g of tea in 6oz of purified water heated to 175 degrees F for 3 min.

Once steeped, it has a very pale yellow green liqour. The second I lifted my cup to my nose I knew I was in heaven. It smelled exactly like it did in the tin. First I smelled the chocolate, then peppermint, then the very slight grassy aroma of the sencha.

This keeps getting better and better. In the tin it smelled great. Steeped it smelled fantastic. And it tasted absolutely sinful! I was not surprised with the layered tast profile. The sweet, but not overly sweet, chocolate (almost like a semi sweet) hit me 1st. Then the crisp peppermint coated my tongue. Finally, the smooth but grassy sencha. I can definitely taste the sencha, it’s slightly stronger in the taste profile than it had been in the scent profile. This would be a wonderful tea to use for green tea ice cream.

I was also surprised by the fact that I can get at least 3-4 infusions out of this. I would have thought the chocolate would dissolve.

The only improvement I’d make is the name. Cocomint is kind of misleading. It makes it sound like it’s coconut mint green tea. Based on the name I would have looked right passed this one, it was only when I read the discription that I realized it has chocolate in it.

I hope I can find a white tea version of this!

Hate the name. But the tea is actually pretty good. I did add a little sugar and cream but it is smooth, sweet, not overly tart (which the Valentines can be for me). Chocolaty and fruity but neither flavor is overwhelming (probably due to the cream and mambo). Tastes good. Still hate the name.

This is my favorite tea of the moment. It’s so refreshing to drink, yet relaxing. I drink it almost every morning.

I find it’s best with two packets of sugar to sweeten it up a bit.

drank Sour Apple by Adagio Teas

When I opened the tin I could definitely smell the sour apple. It took all I had not to eat it:) I steeped one heaping teaspoons in 6oz boiled purified water for 5 min. It had a bright red liquor from the cranberries. For a minute I even thought that I had mistakenly steeped this tisane in boiling cranberry juice and I was even more convinced of it when I took my 1st sip. This tisane tastes nothing like green apple, cran apple at best. It tastes like the hot cranberry juice I thought I steeped it in. False advertising alert! Don’t get me wrong, if you’re looking for a cranberry herbal tisane it is VERY good, but you will be very disappointed if you expect it to taste like it the title

I’m not a big green tea fan but I like this as it reminds me of a black tea. One reviewer likened this to pu eth but it doesn’t remind me of that at all!

Delicious! Benefits from re-steeping. One of my favs.

Excellent staple tea. Great any time of the day. Not as sharp as many black teas, a very smooth but robust taste; you know you’re drinking black tea. Best drank with a spot of milk and honey.

Great soothing tea. Smoky, earthy, nutty flavors. Has the effect on the missus and I of inducing a coma-like sleep. Best drank with a spot of honey.

Because of the spices I measure this by the teaspoon instead of weight. 1 heaping teaspoon steeped for 5 min in purified boiling water or simmering milk, I like chocolate milk. Serve unsweetened.

For a dirty chai, add 2oz cold brewed coffee concentrate to 4oz boiling water or simmering milk. You can also add hot cocoa mix added after steeping.

There’s good chai, and there’s bad chai. This is bad chai. Something is really strong in it, and it’s something I obviously don’t like a lot of. Almost bitter. There isn’t “chai” in the name, but this is definitely a chai tea. But if that’s what you want, do yourself a favor and buy one of their actual chai teas. This is a redundant waste of product space in my opinon- I’d rather they take this out and put something more interesting and unique in it’s place.

To make it chilled, make a large batch using as little water as possible to make a concentrate, chilling, then using milk to fill the liquid discrepency. If desired, add proper amount of coffee concentrate for the amount you’re making and reduce water/milk that amount according to compensate for the coffee. If serving it over ice, make ice cubes from more tea or tea steeped in milk. I prefer it blended when iced.
