First of all – I’m drinking this one (FINALLY) only because, quite frankly, I’m sick of looking at it in my yet-to-be-tried box. I received this in a swap a REALLY LONG time ago!
2nd…my infused tea – looks NOTHING like this picture.
And 3rd…I AM a fan of Adagio’s Foxtrot but not-so-much this one. At first I thought they just repackaged it but it IS different…somehow…not sure HOW…but it seems to be, anyways.
This has little to NO mint. I cannot taste the rooibos (Actually I didn’t notice ANY in there anyways). And it seems to be all about the Chamomile…and not very good chamomile at that.
It doesn’t taste bad – but it isn’t very impressive, either.
I had a small sample of this for my first cuppa the day today and I really enjoyed it! It was a medium strength black but the thing that stood out to me on this Irish Breakfast was the fact that there was an incredible creaminess to it…it even smelled like and tasted like it had cream in it. It was very smooth…but…creamy-smooth. This was a very good Irish Breakfast!
I have been holding off on this one for a while…because it’s a pure straight-up fruity herbal. Those often scare me! I just finished my infusion. it’s neat pink-orange-red-brown color. But I can already tell it’s fruit, and tart, and hibiscus! Ekkkk!
Oddly enough…the beginning or the sip is smooth but the end of the sip is a fruity squeaker! Yes, I said it! A Squeaker! The tartiness squeaks out right at the end of the sip! Almost a last harrah type thing…
I really thought I wouldn’t be able to finish this – thinking it would be all tart and nothing else…but it’s almost smooth (until that squeak at the end!) but since I am still drinking it and really surprised at this – I will score it fairly high…especially since I am one that is usually scared about fruity herbals! WOW! it’s drinkable. YAY! Pleasant surprise!!!!
The color is brilliant! Reddish-Brown! Lovely! The scent is out of this world! Peachy and a tinge of ginger! You can still taste the black tea but also the flavors! This is a nice tea! A Delight!
I bought this tea only because my long-time favorite Darjeeling Poobong White from SpecialTeas had been out of stock for a few months and SpecialTeas didn’t know if they were gonna restock it and when…
The description and the price seemed very similar to SpecialTea’s and since I was having White Darjeeling cravings I purchased 4 oz at once. Well… it’s not the same tea, unfortunately.
It sure has Darjeeling notes I love so much but it is somewhat soapy and lacks complexity. Also the leaf brews extremely lightly and a lot of it needed to get a decent flavored tea which makes it even more expensive than it is.
