Recent Tasting Notes
Light in color but not in scent! Before and during the steeping process the scent is like nothing I have ever smelled before. There is so much going on here! It’s Chamomile but better…minty but with other influences jumping in…herbal but not medicine-smelling…even smells a little fruity or even like a vegetable garden at times. Pleasant to look at and smell. The taste is refreshing yet calming. I really enjoy this one…maybe even so much so that it’s my new fave nighttime or bedtime tea.
The scent prior to steeping was pure peach. After steeping Peach and almost a hint of twig. The coloring is neat…a nice light brown. At first sip you get the peach taste but it’s not overpowering…towards the end you can get a bit of twig-taste, but just a hint. I would suggest this one to someone who is new to Oolong and enjoys the scent and undertone taste of peaches. A Delight!
The Vanilla aroma is that of a Vanilla Bean and not some average imitation flavoring. It is very strong…before, during, and after steeping. The coloring is wonderful. Since I am not usually a vanilla freak I was a tad afraid of what this would taste like based on the scent. After tasting…I have discovered that I LOVE it. Nicely done, Adagio!
Upon first sniff it’s true “chocolate covered strawberries” as described. During/After Steeping the “chocolate” scent is subtracted quite a bit. Strawberry scent is more prominent. But when you taste it with the taste and smell combined it’s like a “smoked” chocolate with a hint of strawberry. I really like it, tho. A good blend. Closer to a black tea than a flavored blast which I like. Worth a try, indeed!
I think I may have just found my new daily cup of the morning. It is full-bodied without being overwhelming, and has a really unique tingle without being peppermint-y at all. I’d like it a hair stronger, but as Adagio claims it can’t be over-steeped, it may just want another minute or two in the press.
