4 Tasting Notes

56

I’m not a huge fan of cinnamon usually, but this was a nice mildly flavored tea. The cinnamon actually sets off the vanilla and rooibos quite nicely. It could have used a little more flavor actually. If I were to drink again, I’d brew it longer. Not a fantastic tea, but it was a free sample, so I can’t really complain.

drank Pu Erh Dante by Adagio Teas
4 tasting notes

This was my first experience with Pu Erh tea, and my first time hating something I tried from Adagio. I’m glad I went with the sample size, because I actually ended up throwing this one at (another first). I got a little worried when I opened the tin and was hit with a rather fishy smell. But I was hoping the taste would be different. It really wasn’t. Earthy is fine, I usually like earthy. Fishy, however, I don’t like.

Fishy? I’ve never heard a tea described like that before :( EEW!

Emily Lind

Yeah, it was not a pleasant experience.

You should be a part of freecycle.org. That’s how I regifted my pu erh dante. Throwing away even pu erh is a sin!:)

B-Sides

I wouldn’t call mine a bad experience, but I certainly had a similiar reaction. Not fishy, but the earthiness of this tea was too much for me.

drank Cocoa Loco by SerendipiTea
4 tasting notes

Rooibos+vanilla+bits of chocolate=one great tea. A mug of this makes a great dessert, or pair it with some some cookies for an extra special treat. I like to add a little milk, but this tea has a creamy taste all on its own. You can really taste the vanilla and cocoa, but they don’t overwhelm the flavor of the rooibos.

drank Yunnan Gold by Adagio Teas
4 tasting notes

When it comes to black teas, I usually tend to go with ones that have been flavored. But Yunnan Gold is an absolutely fantastic plain black tea. Certainly it’s a bit on the pricey side, but it’s well worth it in my mind. It’s such a rich tasting tea. Full of flavor, with some lovely peppery notes and a lot of body. I’ve found this a great tea to pair with just about anything, or to enjoy on it’s own, curled up on the sofa with a good book.
