Recent Tasting Notes
Mango! An old favorite. It was my first loose leaf black tea. I always get a little of this when I make an order with Adagio. However, it’s been since 2009 since I’ve had it, and that was before the big tin/pouch switchover. I just recently made my first order with the pouches, and though they’re not as aesthetically pleasing, I feel like all the teas I’ve received are a lot more fresh. Plus, they seem to smell much stronger.
I disagree with the recommended steep time, and would go with 4 minutes instead of 3. Then again, I like my black tea to have a bitter kick sometimes. Plus, the fruit flavor brightens up a bit, too.
Now, when I say fruit, I mean indistinguishable citrus. This doesn’t taste much like real mango, but it’s close. It tastes “orange” for lack of a better word. But then again, this seems to taste much better than it used to back in 2006 in my grandparents’ kitchen. Either my preparation has gotten much better, or Adagio has improved this blend.
I wonder if they’ve improved their vanilla… Maybe used the vanilla from Earl Grey Moonlight… Nah, that’s probably wishful thinking. Also, this tea reminds me a lot of flavored hookah smoke.
Still on vacation, but taking a moment with Steepster. A moment away from reading and savoring the fact that my cell phone is turned off. Yes, I’m one of those people that Christmas makes miserable.
Anyway, I went through the entirety of my sample pouch in one night. We stayed up talking and getting drunk, sipping tea in between. As usual, when I serve this tea to groups, it’s always a big hit. And it was. I had three cups, myself, at least. Though by the end, I’m not sure how much it was. It’s all a bit hazy. But now my boyfriend’s mom, who we’re visiting, has ordered the pound bag.
If you haven’t given guanabana a chance, and you like fruit teas, this is something one should have at least once.
Guanabana! ♥ Again, I haven’t ordered this tea in 2 years, and it looks like another blend Adagio has stepped up a bit. Last I saw it, the Ceylon leaf was lower quality, and there were much fewer sunflower petals. Plus, I don’t remember there being actual chunks of dried guanabana in it at all. But I could be remembering that wrong.
This was one of my absolute favorite teas for a long time. I used to make it for friends all the time in the summer of 2009. Tasting it again now, I still feel very strongly about it. It’s fruity in a serious way, but it also has a sort of toasted sugar taste and scent, like someone caramelizing it in a pan. But mostly, since I’ve still never tasted real guanabana, I compare it to starfruit. It has that sort of tart floral/citrusness that really appeals to me.
Happy to have this in the cupboard again. Might go for a 4oz again once I get low.
Nothing but love, love, love for guanabana! I need to get myself a big tin of this. It does taste very exotic in a way that’s hard to describe. There is a sort of strawberry-ish flavor, and definitely some citrus, but otherwise… this is just a tea you have to try to understand. It’s a favorite for me, and my friends really like it, too. Last time I made tea at a friend’s house, everyone ended up drinking two cups. It’s especially yummy with a glob of honey.
Of the few Zodiac Series teas I’ve tried, this is the one I’ve liked the most. It tastes of peach, but it’s a light flavor as compared to the taste of the tea itself. I think it’s a great tea for summer, and it’s good iced, too! I served it to a few of my friends and they enjoyed it as well. But maybe I favor it because I’m a Gemini, myself…
Yum again. Creamy and orangy but in a non-obtrusive way, well-rounded by the vanilla oolong. The chamomile is sort of buried by that taste, along with the faint hint of rooibos. It’s in the finish, like an afterthought. And yet it’s soothing that way. Even with as many different flavors as there are in this, they don’t clash. Really enjoying this after being in the car all day.
This was a really interesting tea. It’s a blend of oolong, chamomile, and rooibos. I’m not usually a fan of rooibos, but I liked this. Its flavor reminds me of a dreamsicle… vanilla and orange are the strongest tastes. But it’s not an artificial orange. It tastes very natural and creamy. And it’s fun to brew with all the little chamomile flowers floating at the top.
This tea is delicious! It even has little dried blueberries in it. :D I usually go with two and a half teaspoons instead of one because I like my tea to have a stronger flavor. When it comes to Adagio, I’m usually not too impressed with their white teas, but this one is great. It’s the perfect tea to get into whites if you haven’t tried any.
There’s just something about this tea that I don’t like. It has a great, strong black tea taste, but at the same time, I couldn’t really taste the cream. There was a sort of sour flavor, like cream that maybe sat out a little too long. I know this is a favorite to others, but it just didn’t strike a chord with me.
Woohoo! Another sample done! My tea stash has gone down pretty dramatically in the last month or so. I still have a lot of small samples from the fine people of Steepster, but I’m running through Adagio sample tins – 9 done in the last month at last count. I might do another swap/giveaway of teas that need a good home in the next week or two.
Anyway, I liked this one overall, but I don’t think I’ll reorder. The caramel taste can be too synthetic and sugary at times.
This taste more and more caramelly every time I drink it. Could I be hallucinating caramel where there is no caramel tastes? Seriously, this is now tasting like biting into a pure caramel candy to me. It’s almost making my teeth hurt it’s so sweet. Maybe I’m just going insane.
By the way, once again, I must praise Adagio’s customer service. Best in the tea biz. With a simple e-mail, they let my mom transfer the Frequent Cups points she earned when she bought my utiliTEA to my account. And they replied and did it in under an hour. Awesome.
Now I have $13 to spend at Adagio! Have no clue what I’m going to get.
