Recent Tasting Notes
Needed a black tea this morning after kicking my morning off with a herbal tea. Not sure why but I tend to have a black tea for my first cup and it’s free game after that. Well, today I mixed it up a bit. Anyhow…this is my black tea for this morning (at least my first one). I still like the fact that it’s ‘just enough’ vanilla to be a flavored black tea. I’m already thinking about my next cup…what will it be!? WOW! That sounds like a tea addiction, doesn’t it!?
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.
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!
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!
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.
