Love this one… The sweetness of the mango really takes the edge off the black tea. Do not oversteep, otherwise it gets too bitter. Great mango taste—you can tell it’s mango and not just “some tropical or citrus fruit.”
It is a good night to be a scorpio. I brewed this tea with boiling water, and accidently let it steep for 10mins. The tea still brewed up without a bitter edge, with the mango and chocolate notes predominating. Delicious.
I’ve just purchased a couple of Adagio samplers, which is why I have been logging about so many of their teas lately. This is a great drink for a chilly fall morning. The spiced cider flavor is really pronounced but not overwhelming. I enjoyed this with steamed milk and a touch of honey.
This tea has a delicate body with aromas of springtime, and a palate of—oh, who am I kidding? I just wanted to post another tasting note so that I could say “scott_ish is drinking Love Child” on Twitter, again.
Kicking this rating up a little bit. Just a really pleasant tea, if the flavored thing is your thing. It’s flavored, but it’s all subtle. I think it’s probably the chamomile’s influence keeping the fruit and vanilla in check.
