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.

Backlogging – a little bit on the lite side today – should steep a larger amount, prob. Still good tho

I usually type these reviews as I am steeping and tasting unless marked backlogging. I am steeping right now this cup of English Breakfast. I am somewhat amazed that there are 6 tastes but only 1 comment with feedback. Anyhow…on to my 2 cents worth…While steeping I find this to smell a little different from other English Breakfast Teas I have tried before. It’s more of a Woody smell than I expected. The color is a tad lighter in color than some black teas…but still noticeably black tea. After steeping it’s a pale black tea smell. The taste is a bit more mellow than I was anticipating. It’s ok. I will probably oversteep next time. It has a slight smoky flavor but more sweet towards the end of the sip.

50/50 milk/water + sugar all boiled together. So very yum. Has a flavor like there is coconut milk in it. Very bright, summery chai.

Great idea boiling it all together!

I’m finishing up my sample tin and I’m sad to see it go. I’m going to try and steep this as many times as it allows

LENA

Dude, I hated it! Do you want to swap a sample for a sample? My tin is only minus 2 or 3 cups. Just let me know. I have a post on Adagio’s Tea Chat about wanting to swap it, but I can take it down if you want to swap.

Hah, I often am able to realize how much I like a tea by how many times I try to steep it before the end of its life. If I end up drinking hot water, it’s a really good indication.

Was careful on the portion prior to steeping…still too much only because of the way it expands not because of the way it tastes – because the taste is awesome either way! I LOVE IT!

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!

Onto the 3-steep now. Starting to smell like vegetables. Still a great cup! Kind of tasting a hint of frozen peas type of aftertaste. Interesting but good.

Went for the suggested Resteep just to see what happened. Awesome! Certainly a Resteep worthy Loose Leaf! Excellent! Still an earthy/mossy aroma. Floral type taste. But also like a pure water type of refreshing!

A first smell after the first steep it’s very earthy smelling. I think I oversteeped. The leaves expand quite a bit more than I first thought they would. Coloring is more of a white looking tea. Based on the first steep smell I was a little afraid of the taste BUT the first sip was totally unexpected!!!! It’s a soothing yet thirst quenching blend that is a bit sweet but flowery to taste. What a DELIGHT! I like it A LOT and A LOT MORE than I thought I would! Very, Very nice!

Even tho it’s said to drink in the afternoon I am having this midmorning. The color and scent is typical of black teas and the taste is around being normal to those black teas as well.It tastes good but hard to be descriptive of this one as it’s a true ceylon and fairly ‘normal’ – if you are looking for a plain black tea try this one…I like it!
