Great smell, wonderfully mild, calming taste. Brought me back from the edge after the stress of the work day.

I normally shy away from peppery teas, but Adagio’s Golden Monkey is very smooth and satisfying. jtchampeau, I’m going to have to try a cold brew the next time I have it!

Great black tea, good any time of the day. It naturally has a sweet flavor, not much sugar needed. For brewing I used boiling water for around 4 minutes

Last of my sample! Another one off the to-be-finished pile. I’m beginning to believe there’s hope for me there.

I put all my Adagio samples on that pile. I don’t know. Some of them were really nice, but none of them has been delicious enough that I wanted more, and most of them I’ve just grown bored with. This one is the last of the fruity ones, not counting the Valentine sample that TeaEqualsBliss sent me and in which I can’t for the life of me find any strawberries try as I might. (I haven’t posted about this yet, but I have taken notes. It’s one of the ones I’ll be backlogging eventually when I can put a post together)

But this isn’t about the Valentine.

For a fruity tea, this one is definitely decent. Slightly artificial in flavour, I think, but all in all decent. I seem to be more pleased with Adagio’s fruit flavours than with their other flavours. The cinnamon is seriously getting nowhere.

It’s not one I’m sad that I’ve finished off. On the contrary it was rather a WIN-moment that the pile had become a little smaller.

I don’t know. I used to be enamoured with Adagio because of their enormous selection of interesting flavours. Now I think I’ve just fallen out of love with them all together.

Unrelated: I like that if you look at the explore page now, it looks like you’re the only one on the site. Just a huge list of “Angrboda did such and such…” ;D Alright, off to bed with me…

Angrboda

LMAO! Well, on certain times of the day, that happens. I can use it sometimes to see that I’m the only one around here doing any thing. It’ll change around 2.30 – 3 o’clock my time when you lot wake up again. :p

Wotcher, watchers!

I have new followers, yay! This is due to my OCD-ish adding people left, right and center, but it still counts. Yes, I am actually this shallow.

I was in the mood for a citrusy tea. Didn’t have one. The closest I get is a net of oranges, and those are for work lunches. Well, I do have an Earl Grey thing, but that’s a different sort of mood. I figured that, while passion fruit isn’t a citrus fruit at all, this was the closest to that mood that I could get.

When I got the lid off I discover that the sample tin was nearly full! I can’t have used it more than twice. Tops. Why is that? I distinctly remember having liked it. But maybe ‘liking it’ and ‘being memorable’ just aren’t really the same thing at all.

It’s good. I can taste a lot of passion fruit, but it’s a flavour that I think suits the tea, and it definitely works as a substitute when I would really rather have had something with orangey. Passion fruit just aren’t really one of my favourite fruits at all, though, which is the only reason I’m not rating this a bit higher.

Suzi

It’s funny, I liked this one too, but it took me forever to use up my sample tin :) It was good, but I’d always reach for something else anyway.

Bethany

I’ve always been curious about this and Guanabana. They seem like such odd flavors. Just wanted to let you know that I got your package today – thanks for the added oolong! Really excited to try them all tomorrow, so look forward to some tasting notes!

Angrboda

Suzi, yes, it’s strange! There must be something kind of forgettable about it.

Bethany, yay, I’m glad it arrived safely. :D The guanabana is definitely an odd flavour. I only go the sample because I’d never heard of that fruit before. At first I thought it must be some sort of blend of banana and guava or something. I wish I knew what the fruit really tastes like in RL, but apparently we can’t get it over here because it doesn’t keep very well, so it can’t be shipped this far.

Say, isn’t it ‘passion fruit’ in two words? Anyway, I’ve been awake for hours and hours and we’re moving rather quickly towards noon actually. And I haven’t had a drop yet. Not because I didn’t want any, I just didn’t know what to pick. And then in a convoluted sort of thought patterns that I couldn’t trace even if I wanted to, one Arnold J. Rimmer makes the choice for me when the following quote popped into my head. “You are the fruit of their forbidden passion. You’re forbidden passion fruit.” (Red Dwarf S3E6 The Last Day) And I thought, hey why not? (Again with the setting, self! What gives???)

Smells sweet and kind of floral and with a note of something that kind of reminds me of yoghurt, strangely enough. It has a sort of dusty taste to me that makes me wonder if it’s fading and at the same time it tastes more ‘real’ than your average cheap flavoured bags. I think it’s the lack of syntheticness that does it.

Unfortunately I accidentally oversteeped it a little bit and the fruity flavours have drowned somewhat. The tea as such hasn’t turned unpleasant at all, it’s just not really all that sweet and fruity anymore. However, a smidgen of cane sugar, and we are back in business. Very nice.

TeaEqualsBliss

Everytime I look at that label I ask the same thing about it being 2 words! LOL

Jason

I thought the same thing too, but I added the tea myself and that’s how they spell it…

Angrboda

Yeah, I noticed that on the tin too which is why I didn’t edit. But even to my foreign eye it still looks strange. There are lots of teas with either spelling though so who can tell which are the right ones?

The smell isn’t overly fruity, but you can tell there’s definitely fruit in it. It’s discreet and unless you’re looking for it, you might miss it, but it’s there.

The taste is very fruity, but not unpleasantly so. Passionfruit has a rather special flavour I think, and it’s coming through nicely in the tea. Not too fond of passionfruit as a fruit, but the flavour suits the tea and vice versa. I like this tea a lot better than I like the fruit.

This tea is such a treat! The smell alone will warm you. Brewed, this tea is a cupful of rich, full coconut flavor. I add just a smidge of sugar and milk to feel like I’ve indulged in dessert.

Normal wakeup. I have about a pound of this, so I better like it. :-)

Water about 190F and steeped for 3.5 minutes. Use about a tablespoon of sugar (I like it sweet). Very earthy!

Minty, fresh and smooth. Can’t taste much but the mint, but it is not overpowering.
