Recent Tasting Notes
I steeped more of the loose leaf and for longer and I like it even better than the first time I tried it. Check out my previous review for this tea here http://www.steepster.com/teas/adagio/white-tropics
I think there will be LOTS to say about this one! Before steeping it’s almost like a fruity pina colada smell to it. I’m not really into Pina Colada usually but the first sniff offers a little something extra and makes you wonder what it will taste like! So…I continued on with the steeping process! While Steeping it has more of an earthy aroma kind of like a leafy or sweet grassy scent. Very different. Maybe even a sweet basil smell or something. After steeping it’s a slight tropical beach drink smell…the coloring is a typical white tea color. I wasn’t sure if I would like it much but it’s very different than I thought…I can certainly taste the Pina Colada Flavor/idea going on with this one…but there is a little something that is trying to push thru…a bit fruity but just enough to keep you guessing. Right toward the end you can taste the coconuts and pineapple…maybe more so at first the coconut and towards the end more so the pineapple. I think I like it!
Upon opening the tin it smells like Vanilla Ice Cream as described. As you steep it’s more of a wood or bark type aroma. After Steeping equal parts (or should I say sniffs) vanilla/equal Oolong on the verge of earthy scent. The coloring is nice. A little darker than I thought it would be. The taste is Earthy yet pleasant and slight creamy vanilla undertones. This one is fairly good in my book!
