Wow! I thought this was going to be scary, but it was quite good. Like the Sesame tea, this came from Adagio’s Savory Sampler, which I received in the mail yesterday. I actually drank this last night. I was very apprehensive, but when I smelled the tea I began to feel less so. The tea actually smells kind of sweet (my husband said fruity, but i don’t know about that) but still like artichokes. In my mind, artichoke flavor = tangy / salty. That is not what this tea tastes like at all. This is more “essence of artichoke”. Now, I did not use enough leaf when I brewed this last night, so I will have to re-try with a more correct proportion. But the flavor itself is very smooth, savory, soothing. Definitely worth trying. I will have to try a few more times before I can adequately rate it, but it surely falls into the “thumbs up” category.
I’m kind of disappointed. This is my second time having this tea, and the sesame flavor is still a little bit weaker than I was imagining. I envisioned a tea with a robust, toasted sesame flavor that doesn’t overwhelm the tea, but is still very present. I can smell it in the brewed tea and in the loose leaf (and still the smell of soy sauce?). But the sesame flavor is hard to find when I sip. But take this all with a grain of salt, because I’ve never been the worlds biggest fan of black tea. And, my palate is not the most refined. It is not bad, just not as flavorful as I was hoping. I’ll be interested in what others have to say.
I was so excited to get my “savory sampler” from Adagio yesterday. Sesame was first on my list to try. The leaves smell and look a little like soy sauce. They are dark black and have kind of a dark sheen on them. There are also sesame seeds visible with the leaves. When brewed it smells somewhat like sesame, not soy sauce (thankfully), but the sesame flavor was kind of weak. I’m giving it a 100 rating for the moment, because I don’t really know what I think of it just yet. When I first tried it, I was at work and distracted, so I will make a better assessment when I’m fully focused. Try it! The “savory sampler” is free with a $19 purchase from Adagio. Not sure how long that promotion is running. This tea is definitely worth checking out.
i think what makes this tea good is the stronger strawberry flavor and the more subtle chocolate flavor. i had most of a cup of this at work earlier today (lost the last 2 sips as i dropped dog food into it) its defiantly something i can see myself coming back to but personally i dont think id purchase it. it isnt significant enough for me to purchase even the 4oz tin. the strawberry alone is amazing, and chocolate alone is gross so im glad they found a way to make it work out nicely.
the scent of this tea is stronger on the chocolate than the flavor.
im having this i guess the real way chai is made and i gotta say…..i dont wana try it any other way lol
i stole this from teaplz
1 cup of water, 1 cup of milk/milk equivalent 1 tbsp of sugar, 1 tbsp of chai
Boil water and sugar together in a saucepan until sugar dissolves into water. Into a syrup.
Add the chai, then simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the milk, simmering and stirring.
When it comes to a boil (be careful that it doesn’t boil over!), turn the heat off and let it sit for a long time. Like 7-10 minutes long. I let it sit for around 8-9 or so.
Strain and serve.
it gos perfectly with my turkey dinner i just made :D its amazing!
bumping up my rating!!!
I really liked this more than I thought I would! The spices blended really well together, and more importantly with the tea. It’s a bit more delicate and smoother than the other chais but still warming, which is something I’m am greatly appreciating on the cold and windy New England afternoon after a horrendous week.
Hey, I didn’t write a novel intro before talking about the tea! Although, story telling is always something that goes with tea drinking.
I’m really getting to like this green from Adagio. I just finished my third steep and was pleasantly surprised at how much I’m liking it. The aftertaste is awesome- tastes like a good warm biscuit in your mouth fresh from the oven…The general (well there is nothing general about tea), but the taste of the tea was different for each steep starting out a little sweet with not much else happening but in second steep notes come whistling through and its sweetly delicious. The 3rd steep is just as good as the second but I noticed the biscuity aftertaste the most after this one. I think this is gonna be my favorite new green from them! Dang it! I just put in an order for them 2 days ago and I didnt get any more of this…YET!
I just received this tea yesterday and I’m just now getting to my first steep. Its nice, a bit sweet with a great aftertaste that lingers for quite a while. I was too, surprised at the non-color of it but am looking forward to my next steep, I know it will be more delicious than the first..just cuz thats how it usually goes! Can’t complain over here.
