I had never heard of this before, but apparently it’s some sort of tropical fruit that we others can’t get because the fruit doesn’t transport very well.
The dry leaves smell weird. Sort of fruity and bitter at the same time. Like a very old orange. At this point I’m sceptic. Very sceptic.
Colour is nice and golden and the scent is something familiar that I can’t quite place. It’s not mouldy oranges anymore anyway.
The taste is…. strange. Fruity. Adagio suggests something akin to candied strawberry and pineapple. I can’t really ‘find’ those notes but at the same time I don’t really disagree either. I can’t tell when I don’t know how the fruit is supposed to taste.

I like it. I don’t think I’ll stock up on it once I’ve got through the sample, but I like it.

I hate this tea. Steeped leaves smell like latex gloves and the tea tastes like liquid vegetables.

Scent of honey but great taste of Oolang. A good one from Adagio :)

Really enjoyed this at Tbar in Philadelphia. Rich, warm, and flavorful.

Opening the tin, the amazing bouquet draws you in. It is as if I lit a stick of Jasmine incense and let the smoke waft up around me. This key characteristic is also the key problem with this tea: the bouquet overpowers the flavor. It is like drinking a bottle of perfume.

light and refreshing – but not as flavorful as other jasmine teas I’ve had, or other jasmine pearls for that matter

2nd steep, still awesome, not bitter, picking up more of a spiced aspect.

At this point, I’m feeling a slight caffeine boost from steep #1, but not as much as I have when previously drinking Jasmine #12. A good thing. And thus, I will assume that over-steeping = over-caffeinating.

One of my classic all time favorites – very smooth and mellow, delicate and fresh.

I usually get a pretty serious caffeine buzz from this tea, too – so I’ll update you on whether or not that’s the case today in my followup 2nd steep post

drank Cream by Adagio Teas
16 tasting notes

This definitely seems to make my teas extra creamy. I normally add flavored coffee creamer to my teas (probably much to the dismay of many tea lovers), but I don’t think they cover up the flavors of the tea itself. This is definitely a different taste than the creamer, because I have tried this with just milk itself.

This smells really strong inside the tin. When brewed, it is pretty mild and quite tasty. I love this!
