drank Ceylon Sonata by Adagio Teas
2 tasting notes

I was digging through my Adagio sampler drawer looking for a tea to take over to my friend’s house to brew in this nice overcast weather, and I came accross a tin of Ceylon Sonata. I opened it up, smelled it, and thought that it would be a nice, sweet, black tea to brew.

Boy were we in for a pleasant surprise when we brewed this up. Once steeped, the water is a beautiful amber color. I smelled like a sweet Earl Grey with a sweet side. It had a very smooth, pleasantly sweet taste. Until now my favorite black tea had been Earl Grey Creme, but Ceylon Sonata may have taken its place.

Quite good.

Seemed to hint at some flavors that are completely beyond my ability to identify.

I like how it is not quite a strong as a black tea, but seemed to be stronger than a green tea.

This is the first Oolong I’ve had (at least in loose leaf form). Will definitely keep drinking this, but I’m also now curious about other varieties to try.

Added Huang Jin Bolero to my shopping list.

Thanks for the suggestion! : )

Cofftea

Put Dancong Aria on that list. And try their savory teas too!

drank Honeybush Vanilla by Adagio Teas
32 tasting notes

Today I’m drinking honeybush vanilla with a little bit of some fruit tisane- I don’t know the brand. The fruit tisane has hibiscus, currant, grapes, and other fruits. The honeybush vanilla gives it a hint of creaminess, and tones down the tart fruit flavor. I speak from experience when I say it is quite good iced as well.

You’re kidding? Of the same one? How does it not get incredibly weak and boring? O.o

Shoulda looked at my previous tasting note before brewing this. I set my timer for 3:30, thinking that was a short enough time, and it’s already bitter. It may be that I had a bit more leaf in the pot than before, as well.

Delightful aroma, both dry in the tin and brewed in the cup. Classic earl gray with pleasing berry overtones.

One must be extremely careful not to steep this too long. It can’t handle a typical 5-minute black tea steeping, despite being mostly Earl Grey. I typically do 3 minutes, and even going to 3:30 I notice some bitterness creeping in.

But when you do it just right, it’s a wonderful cup, and the only Earl Grey blend I’ve ever found that doesn’t ruin the Earl Grey-ness of its base tea.

Light flavored tea, possibly not enough tea in the pot. Good taste though. A nice blend of tea and herbal.

Great all day light tea. I like this because it is a great idle tea for my blogging time in front of the computer. Taste is light but not weak. Use leaves 4-5 times when i brew this.

Great Tea for mornings and coffee substitute, I use a tea spoon of German rock sugar to make it more pleasant for early mornings. I use the same leaves 3-4 times so its great for study sessions.

drank Wild Strawberry by Adagio Teas
7 tasting notes

I’m very “eh” about this one. It is sweet on its own, but also quite sour, so I added some Splenda. That made it better, but it still wasn’t great. Maybe sugar would have worked better. It definitely smells and tastes like strawberries and is a wonderful red color. I would drink it maybe as a desert tea. Not bad, fruit teas may just not be the type for me :)

Too overrun with mint, not enough tea. And even that tea is decaf (dangit!).

I drank most of it but gave up at the end.

Do you have a whole tin of it!? Prob something I would like…lol…

Nope, just had enough of a sample to do my morning tea. I got it from the Signature Blends box pass that was going (is going?) around on the Adagio forums. That’s why I’ve tried to many blends. I tried a ton right after I got the box, then I got a bit burned out because there are more bad and just okay blends out there than there are good ones. Now I’m finishing up the few samples that were remaining when I got scared back to my regular teas. :)
