A friend at work let me sample this – I’m drinking right now! I’m going to hold off on rating, since I can hardly taste anything. I’m not currently an avid fan of white tea, but I have had some very delicious varieties before. Therefore, I don’t think the issue is that I’m just not used to the delicate nature of white tea. I followed the brewing instructions and used the right amount of water at the right temperature, and I added a dash of honey. I’m about halfway through the cup now, and I’m only tasting the honey so far, with a faint aftertaste that might be blueberry flavor if I squint. I should also note that this was a sachet that I used, and not loose tea. I was under the impression that sachets were of comparable quality to loose tea, but I could be wrong. From some of the other tasting notes, I’m seeing that this is yummy iced; maybe I’ll try it that way next time!
I’m not sure if vanilla mixes well with tea or not, but for this tea the answer is no. Sure vanilla smells good but when paired up with a dark woodsy oolong it just doesn’t blend well. I was unable to drink the entire cup that I brewed of this tea, but I was able to drink some of it.
I only got to drink two cups of this because my best friend loves grapefruit and when I brewed this she really liked it so I gave it away, however I remember it quite well. The oolong flavor in this tea keeps its integrity while being present in the midst of a grapefruit flavor that is identifiable. I found this tea to taste quite well, but it wasn’t my favorite.
This was the worst oolong that I got from Adagio teas and I hope it stays at that position because I wouldn’t want anything worse. The natural almond flavor that is added (however it is added as well) ruins the oolong taste in this tea. Maybe I had a bad batch or something but it was quite repulsive- enough so that I threw it out.

I like floral teas, including rose, but I’m not sure how I feel about rose black teas. The worst of them taste like soap to me, and I haven’t found one I love, but I’m still interested in trying different brands. This one was on the better end of the spectrum. The base was light and smooth, and the rose flavor was distinct but not overwhelming. I didn’t notice the lemon flavor that other tasters have mentioned. If anything though, I think this was a little too light. I’ll probably try overleafing this and maybe see how it blends, before I make up my mind on it, though.

The last of my gingerbread this morning… sipdown
I’m enjoying this one after waking up with the munchkin. He’s finally starting to sleep through most of the night already! 8 hours in a row the last two nights! That’s one of those things where you wake up and you almost have to check he’s still breathing ‘cause there’s no way that it’s possible he slept that well!
Anyways, I’m not sure if maybe I oversteeped it or what, but I’m not enjoying this one as much as I thought I would this morning. It’s okay, but it’s not as nice as it was the first time. Or maybe I was just craving something else and now my tastebuds are confused…?
Either way, Glad I got to have this tea, but not sure if I’d get this one again unless my plan was to mix it with something.
I’m really loving this one. The gingerbread flavour is so good. I didn’t follow the steeping instructions completely (only steeped 3mins instead of 5mins) and I’m really glad I didn’t do the 5mins. I think that would have been too much. But either way, I really like the flavour of this one. It’s so nice! It makes me want to eat a gingerbread cookie!
Milk and a tiny bit of rock sugar added to taste.
