4 Tasting Notes
This is one of my new favorites! I’ve always loved minty tea, and this one is just right. The green tea is subtle, as is the chocolate, but both complement the mint in a way that really helps it shine. I usually add stevia to my tea, but this is one I can drink unsweetened.
I got this as a free sample when I placed a big order with Adagio, and I liked it pretty well. It smells like almonds and tastes like almonds, but there was a slight undercurrent of something that I can only describe as Play-doh. I haven’t noticed this with other oolongs or other almond-flavored teas, so maybe it was the combination of the two or maybe it was just the sample I got. Either way, I still drank all of it. I don’t think it will go into regular rotation, though.
This tea doesn’t taste much like toasted nuts, but it’s delicious nonetheless. The main notes I got were cinnamon, apple, and caramel with a bit of a lemony finish. I use about 50% more tea than recommended and still this hardly tastes like it has any actual tea in it. Despite not being what I expected, it’s a great substitute for dessert.
