1102 Tasting Notes

drank Vanilla Green by Adagio Teas
1102 tasting notes

This is a nice tea. It’s pretty straightforward, with a vanilla flavor that’s clearly present in every sip but not overwhelming; I’d say I’m getting about 60% vanilla taste and 40% green tea taste. Whatever technique that was chosen to add the flavor was a good one, because it harmonizes better with the base than I’ve come to expect from flavored teas, especially inexpensive ones. The green tea they used isn’t overly complex, but there’s still a nice flavor, one that’s a touch grassy and buttery.

I’ve had a couple of blends that utilize this tea, and it’s very good for that purpose as well. I feel like, in general, these simple flavored teas from Adagio are best for blending; this is one of the few that I’ve tried that works wonderfully both ways (although I prefer it in blends).

Quick summary of ratings:

90s: Outstanding, I always want to have some of this on hand (though I really can’t afford having all of my favorite all of the time, haha)!
80s: Very good, there are some minor improvements I would make but overall I love it.
70s: Good, I might buy myself more of this someday but it’s not a priority.
60s: All right, I’m glad I got to give this a try but when it’s gone it’s gone.
50s: Not so great, I can drink this when I just really want tea.
40s and below: Various levels of dislike to hate. It just depends on how gross I think it is.
