drank White Tropics by Adagio Teas
122 tasting notes

Oh man what did I do wrong?
This tastes like…like…bread???
There’s a yeasty or malty note that reminds me of beer. Am I crazy? (Maybe.) I can taste a bit of the coconut, too, towards the end, but it’s this other bread-flavor that dominates.

It’s gross, to be honest. I’m disappointed. I followed Adagio’s instructions, so what happened? Le sigh. I don’t know whether I’ll give this another chance. I mean, it could be awesome, but is it worth mucking around to find out?

I do not like their new parameters for whites, they’re even worse than the old ones. I’d try 140-160 for 1-3min, but go up to 7 if you need to.

I agree with Cofftea, Adagio’s steeping parameters are on the high side, so try cutting back the time and temp and see what that does for you. Actually from reading the other reviews this tea has struck out with a few people. :D

Adagio’s steeping parameters, in general, have improved… but obviously NOT w/ whites. :(
