Recent Tasting Notes
This obviously has ingredients other than black tea and bergamot oil, hence it might more correctly be compared with Lady Grey teas. It seems to include a citrus other than bergamot. The bergamot is a bit less flowery than my favorite Earl Grey. The tea is better quality, more piquant than that used in most flavored teas. For bergamot, I prefer another. For black tea, this Earl Grey Bravo from Adagio comes out ahead.
Wow I’m back from my hiatus and I feel so steepsterite deprived right now!! Good to be back to the best tea site around:) I am currently indulging on a remarkably better Golden Spring now that I’m adding almost twice the leaf amount to my mug. It wasn’t comparing to the taste of some of the bold blacks I was getting from metropolitan and something had to change if only for the sole reason that I had bought a pound of it from Adagio before my intro to Metro Teas. I soooooo love this tea now again just as much if not more than before! Its so yummy and malty and assamy and just my kinda tea! Yum! Glad to be back! :)
Currently watching the first snowflakes of the season come down and sipping on my fave fave fave black of all time with some milk and sugar— YUM!! I imbibe in this fabulous black tea every day at least twice..first thing in the morning and then a nice rev me up afternoon cup. Loooooooooooove it!!! Very content right now. :)
So I try not to repeat teas when I have ones I haven’t tried, but this ( and the Thai Chai) made me cave. It was beckoning me, even as I eyed my mostly untouched green sampler from Adagio.
Giving into temptation hasn’t never felt better. Once again, after my first couple sips, I’m getting progressively more droopy eyed and sated.
Ahhh, tea, how I love you.
I just realized I’ve technically logged this twice today once at 1 and once now. Therefore! Not ignoring new teas, but a delay from enjoying this one. I feel much better, even as my text books loom.
This is my first step into the land of Rooibos, and I am very pleased and excited.
At first it was too hot to drink (burnt my tongue again), so I contented my self to smelling it. Absolutely intoxicating. The vanilla was very apparent, but not cloying. The spices were layered and complex, and there was something lingering behind it. I’m almost sure it’s the rooibos, but as this is my first go at them I’m not 100%. Anyways, I had a hard time trying to describe it, I decided on earthy but in a less moist way.
Then came tasting. First thing that stuck me was the prickle of spice on my tongue, then the heady vanilla, and followed with the roobois undertones. Very mellow, very light astringency with a clean finish. I’m not usually a fan of vanilla chais because they tend to be very sweet to me. But this one tasted like vanilla should, not the usual sugar+vanilla extract.
An added bonus is of course that it doesn’t have caffeine, as I realized a bit late that I was drinking a mate/green tea blend at 10pm and was never going to be able to sleep. This tea however totally made me de-stress and wind down to the point that I’ve nearly fallen alseep typing this. Also, it was interesting to watch steep as it looked my strainer was bleeding.
Overall, I really enjoyed this tea and will almost certainly buy another container when my sample runs out.
