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.

Backlogging a bagged version of this. I was in a pinch. Backlogging 3 cups worth actually. It’s been a hellish week!

First cup of the day…something happened with the hot water pot at work and the water wasn’t hot enough to make this tea flavorful – other than the orange – but I still drank it…sigh…

I was so happy to receive this in the mail for link rewards as some of you know I recently ran out. I must say this ‘batch’ smells quite different than my last. Not that that is good, bad, or indifferent just that is smells different! It seems to be more perfumy. I noticed more of the ‘blue-ish/purple’ in this blend too. While tasting – it’s pretty much the same but a little less of the bergamot. Regardless this is still a great tea. I love it! Thanks!

I had a batch that smelled and tasted like bubblegum. I have no clue why. After a few tries, I ‘lost’ it in the back of my cabinet and when I tried it again a few months later, it was much better.

Why is it that some teas seem to give you the best steep – at the last loose leaf in the tin? This happened to me today. It was SO Delish! I will prob re-order this at some point. I really like it!

It’s all part of their evil, evil plans. Seems to work pretty well, though.

Do they put addictive drugs in their tea or something? ;)

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 don’t know if Adagio change the “nose” of this one or if I got a funky batch the last time but regardless THANK THE TEA GODS for the different pre-steep scent on this one! I received this within the savory tea sample and the dry leaf smell is MUCH better than my last batch!!! It smells just like Cucumber this time and actually tastes better and cleaner!

This would be a good question to ask on live chat:) Let us know what you find out:)

TeaEqualsBliss

I have been having probs with live chat on there lately but they are good about emails too! Might have to email them instead because I am very curious! :P

Cofftea

I never get an email back from them. If it really is different, it’ll have to wait. I have an 8oz tin that’s only half gone lol.

Jillian

So no more odors of pickles?

Cofftea

@Jillian, I never got the pickle aroma, just vinegar… but since pickles are IN vinegar, I guess that’s pretty much the same lol.

Cofftea

@TeaEqualsBliss, any word on the apparent nose change?

Cofftea

@TeaEqualsBliss, did you ever email Adagio about cucumber’s nose? HAHA! That sounds funny? Your might want to also ask them why they suggest steeping their whites for 7 min.

I’m still hung up on the smell of this one! Ek! Not pleasant…but the tea is a good one to sip and relax. My advice – plug your nose while steeping and enjoy the cuppa…still a goodie!

Cofftea

I agree, although I don’t have such a problem w/ the aroma of it steeping. It’s the vinegar smell of it raw in the tin that gets me. I LOVE this unsweetened chilled (no ice). White tea helps lower body temperature and the crisp taste even has a cooling effect inside my mouth. I also make a blend of 1/2 white cucumber and 1/2 of their ginseng green. The perfect blend for when the summer heat saps all your energy!

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.
