Whoa, this tea is great! It really tastes like a toasted marshmallow! Yum, yum, yum!!!!
Okay, this tea has totally blown my mind and I can’t find the words to describe it right now. More to come later!!
This is so comforting to me, on a rainy and gray day like today. No rating as this is my blend. Please see other notes. And lemme know if you wanna try it!
I love this tea. I knew I would since I love the bloody orange herbal from adagio, but this is so much more. The orange and lemon flavors really do seem to piece together the white tea so well.
I used a heaping tsp and steeped for five minutes, but it was still on the weak side. I think next time I will use two tsps. I think a little stronger, and it will make a very fine iced tea.
I had forgotten all the components to this before sitting down to brew up a cup, so the smell of the raw tea was sort of a surprise. I hadn’t expected the raw tea to smell so much like one of those expensive coffees you get from Starbucks, but I was willing to give it a try.
The first infusion steeped for 3 minutes. The tea smelled kind of like coffee, but the taste was of very strong tea with a bitter aftertaste. There wasn’t much astringency in the first few sips, but it did get stronger.
I put in creamer and honey, and the creamer was too much. I could taste something else trying to come forward with the honey, but the creamer just blanded it out.
The second infusion (lost track of time, but it was supposed to be for five minutes) was much better. I didn’t use creamer, and the honey brought forward the caramel flavor, which was a nice surprise. I’m not sure if this will be something I keep around all of the time, but it is definitely a nice wake me up.
I think I finally got the perfect steeping time for this. Just the right about of bitterness and sweetness. Creamer plus honey = wonderful deliciousness for breakfast. I actually found the dregs a few hours later as I was cleaning up and gulped them down. Ice cold it was still delicious. Yummy.
I love this strawberry pick-me-up. I created this blend for a friend and love every cup of it. No rating as it is one of my custom blends from Adagio.
Perfect for this afternoon. :)
Enjoying another cup this morning. Hoping the mint taste I enjoyed last time will help ease the stomach trouble I’ve been “enjoying” all weekend. I again love the aroma of this tea before, during, and after infusion. Now to sit back and relax.
Major citrus aroma coming through as it steeps. The taste is simply WOW. The blood orange is really coming through as is the white tangerine….soooo good (I may be drooling). Honestly I can’t really taste the lemongrass which is shocking since it had such a strong smell prior to the infusion. I’m usually not a fan of citrus teas, but this I like and that is saying something.
Well, I was going to start getting myself together for the day…but then I noticed my Adagio tea order had arrived! Well, I had to try this right away. I love the aroma of the mint as this tea steeps. As others have mentioned there is just that super subtle scent of chocolate…yum! The taste is just wow. Love how the mint flavors stay on my tongue as I’m drinking. So great!
Thanks LiberTEAs! This is very cream-creamy!I didn’t get much or any of the rum but the flavor is really, well, creamy! And dreamy! Good blend!
Been slammed at work lately, no time to log but I have taken plenty of time for tea. I am thankful to my many friends I have met here for introducing me to new and exciting teas.
This is becoming a favorite, I really think it should be marketed! Thanks to KiTT and her Blog, I won a wad of this (southern measurement term) and some other samples.
I will log them later, but I love the slightly smoky, creamy, vanilla flavors and this is the honest truth, you can close your eyes with a cup of this and you are at a campfire…well, as long as you don’t spill any of it!
I’m considering re-watching Stargate Atlantis very soon! It’s a great cast and I miss the show! This tea helps! :)
This is really good… it tastes even better this time than the last time I tasted it, I find that if I brew at a slightly lower temperature with this tea, it allows some of the sweeter qualities to come through. Thanks again, Doulton!
Not sure if it’s a good sign that I am starting my day with this one! LOL
Yup! I was a little perturbed – to say the least – last night when I tried to go to bed. It’s been a hell of a week and it’s only Tuesday…actually the last few weeks have been that way! I think I am suffering from “the last straw” syndrome…if you know what I mean.
I’d like to tell a few people the name of this tea
but for now I think I will sit here and enjoy it while grinding my teeth. Upping the rating…
Another lovely gift from Doulton! So generous, thank you!
This is quite lovely. I am usually a little hesitant when it comes to Adagio black teas because they can often be so harsh, but I am not getting that with this blend. This is delightful. The black tea is robust and bold but not harsh. A fair amount of astringency but I am not finding terribly drying. Smooth, rich, and creamy with a delightful touch of rum. Very nice!
I let this steep for a good eight minutes. Why? Why not?! And the flavor is definitely stronger – each taste can be ID’ed in each sip. I love this combo. It’s very unique. I did add sweetener which I think enhanced the chocolate taste. Please see other note. Also, no rating as this is my creation from Adagio.
Mmmm Andrew Lee Potts…tea? Oh! Right! Tea!
So far, I am loving this tea. A bit strong at first, but then it mellows and becomes this dreamy blend of cream and caramel and something a touch sweet and mmmm. I just want to dive into this tea for a few days.
Edited to add: Gah! I’m so rude! Thank you so, so, so much for getting this for me. QueenofTarts. I was distracted by my Hatter >.>
Thanks for the tip on steep time. This was a delicious addition to my lunch. I think I kind of like it just a little bitter though. I’m going to enjoy the experimentation, though.
