Recent Tasting Notes
I was given this tea as a freebie when I made my first order with Adagio. They asked me for my birthday and gave me a sample of the corrosponding tea.
I like peaches as a fruit, but so far I haven’t been all that fond of it in tea, so I’ve put of trying it for a while. If I had checked beforehand instead of afterwards, I might have told them a fake birthday in order to get a different tin.
The leaves are large and you can clearly see both the white and the oolong. It smells very much like peach though, so I’m a bit sceptic and I’ve only made a small pot.
After steeping it smells more like oolong than it does of peach. It’s still peachy but it’s just an underlying note rather than the overwhelmingness of the dry leaves, and I’m pleased to find that although it does taste of peaches and it’s not a tea I’ll ever be especially fond of, I think, it’s not nearly as bad as I had feared. The oolong and white peony definitely makes up for the peach.
I’ll probably not buy more of this, but I am likely to eventually try some of the other zodiac blends, if for nothing else than collecting the tins.) It’s a great idea for a gift for someone, definitely.
I think this one is officially on my list of favorite Adagio Teas and since Adagio has so many good ones it takes a lot to be on my list of TOP Adagios! :) First steep of the day! LOVE it! Still trying to get the portion figured out. You don’t need much at all because it expands like no other Loose Leaf I have seen before. I have seen tightly bunched or rolled Loose Leaf ones before but this is beyond art! What an awesome product, indeed!
I love the smell of the Cinnamon prior to steeping and I think it would be ok if the taste wasn’t a sweet cinnamon…almost like a Cinnamon Red Hot Candy. If it were just Cinnamon and not sweet I might give it a neutral. I’m afraid I am not able to handle this one like I first thought. I hate to give it a thumbs down but I’m not sure what else to do. Sorry.
The color is dark. The scent is plentiful prior to steeping. The Vanilla aroma is still present after the steep but not as intense. The taste is more Ceylon than Vanilla which in my book is good. If you are looking for an overpowering vanilla flavor this is not it but I think it blends well for a good flavored black tea.
Finally got some of this! What an interesting and creative cup! The aroma is beautiful! Very Lovely! Even after steeping it’s a nice floral/juicy smell! It’s VERY Dark black tea for color. It’s a drier citrus taste but doesn’t have an aftertaste which some Earl Grey’s do…I like that. I really like this cuppa!
I was going to drink this yesterday…but forgot. I saw that rkalajian commented about it and remembered to finally try it for myself. Just got it last week! It sounded refreshing via the description. I agree with rkalajian’s comment about the pre-steep loose leaf smell – Good God – not pleasant at all – stings the nostrils! While steeping I noticed the aroma morph into something different…almost like that of a hair salon or something. The coloring is true to a white tea. The longer you steep the more floral or blossomy it smells like. I’m steeping it now…trying to be patient for the full 7 minutes. After steeping the scent of the liquid in the cup has very little scent. You can taste both the White Tea as well as the Cucumber. It’s alright. Thank God the smell toned itself out! It’s refreshing as you sip but leaves a semi-sweet aftertaste. Glad I bought it to try. It’s not my fave but I will still give it a thumbs up because it’s drinkable and creative.
