Recent Tasting Notes
Confession: after I’ve had my several steeps of these exquisite leaves, I will pick out and eat the buds and smaller leaves. Yes, it’s that good and tender, like the best buttered asparagus or artichoke with a vase of sweet flowers on the table. Enjoying Tea has a good price for Ali Shan, and it seems to me to be the same batch as Adagio has right now. Enjoy!
2 min in the ingenuiTea device, boiling water. First pass on this 3 gm of leaves. I weighed them because i love this tea and it’s pricey for my budget. But worth every cent! Ahhhhh! Honeysuckle flowers and buttered spinach. Each further steep of these leaves will reveal new scents and flavors. Smiling!
This is the first of Adagio’s flavored teas that hasn’t bowled me over. While it is as fragrant as any of the others (seriously, my kitchen smells faintly of oranges a few hours later, even though I only brewed a cup), the actual taste is of mediocre black tea with a faint touch of citrus in the background.
This one couldn’t brew fast enough. It is 2 degrees here in Chicago with -15 degree wind chills, so as soon as I got to work I pretty much ran to the water dispenser. This is definitely one of my all-time favorite teas. I love all Yunnan blacks for their peppery taste, but I love the red wine and sweet cocoa qualities in this one. I could drink it everyday.
