As I am finishing up my stash of this loose leaf tea I am very happy this morning as I have just been accepted as a Tea Reviewer over at The Tea Review Blog! YAY! I believe my first post will go up today!!!! Now…back to this tea. Since this was the last of my stash I steeped a bit more loose leaf because I wouldn’t have have enough for a separate steep so I will be trying multiple infusions with this today. This first one was really bold and dark – it’s time to see what the 2nd Infusion does…
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!
