This tea is good at being what it is, which unfortunately means that it’s not really to my taste at all. It’s very strong and quite bitter, even when brewed normally, and the flavor is fairly malty. I always have to add milk and usually also sweeten it — I’m finishing it up with some vanilla creamer right now, and for me it needs that to make it easy to drink without wincing from the bitterness. On the flipside, if you like strong black teas and want to be able to add a lot of things to them, you’ll probably love this. (Although perhaps unsurprisingly, I haven’t tried many teas similar to this one and I can’t really directly compare it.)

Flavors: Malt, Tannin

drank Cocomint Green by Adagio Teas

Minty green tea with a flavor that seems like it’s trying to be chocolate but failing miserably — which is what I get from most chocolate teas, really. While this tastes pretty odd, I do like it well enough due to my enjoyment of minty greens; still, there are dozens of better ones out there.

One nice thing to note is that I’ve found that this is impossible to oversteep. I’ve had it steeping for 10+ minutes more than once accidentally and it just amplifies the flavor a bit without getting bitter.
