drank Pina Colada by Adagio Teas
1329 tasting notes

PiNa CoLaDa!
Too much hibby!!!! yikes. but then I added some honey and it mellowed out a bit. Still super tart, but not in a sour kid way anymore.
Anyhow, thanks so much for the sample Azzrian!! I can really see where this one goes wrong for you. It smells a little gnarly, but the taste is more or less great… except for the teeny little bump when I swallow, where I get a hint of backass in the flavour.
I think it’s the pineapple, and how it’s blending with the hibby. Coconut is in there to somewhere. When I pick out the flavours, they are not making friends! it’s almost as if there is a wall of garbage up between them, but there are stunning gardens on either side!! how odd.
When it was super hot, it was actually really good. Now that my cup is cooling I can see how other reviewers might think it’s terrible. I better drink this one up fast now! gulp

Missy backass as opposed to frontass?
DaisyChubb

this is such an intriguingly strange blend, I love reading your guys’ reviews for it. Taking one for the team! :D

Indigobloom

Missy: yup, I stand by it! I don’t wanna know what frontass is like haha
DaisyChubb: it is very strange indeed! I definitely won’t be buying any… but I am glad to have seen what all the fuss was about. One of those it’s so bad I have to try it scenarios. ha!

Missy

LOL!!

Yogini Undefined

LOL great review, made me laugh so thanks! teehee backass :D

ScottTeaMan

Ass backwards would be a frontass right!?!

Missy

Totally!

Indigobloom

Yogini: it made me giggle just writing about that… :P
ScottTeaMan: well I suppose so yah!! except… it sounds so much worse haha

Kittenna

Yuck. I can’t believe you liked this one. Should I save the rest of my sample package for you? I was going to throw it away. It literally makes me gag to think about it. I hope you don’t get an upset stomach! :P

Indigobloom

lol errr thanks for thinking of me! I think this one is best for the compost! my stomach was ok, this time… ha.

Kittenna

Hahaha :P To the compost it shall go.

Indigobloom

Oh Adagio… whatever made you think this was a good idea?!

Missy

Let me just say tea foot bath! For those teas you wouldn’t give to some one else, I throw some tea in hot water and soak my feet in it. It makes my feet smell nice while they soak at least. :D

Indigobloom

huh, I like that idea Missy!!!
but for a tisane… does that make them sticky? lol

Missy

I’ve never had them go sticky. I’ve tried a couple of teas and I think the one had some fruit but not a lot. I do suggest a rinse after even with out fruit. The leaves tend to get in between toes, or on the top of your foot when you try to get out of the bath.

Indigobloom

neat-o. Now I just need a bin to soak in. My bathtub won’t work because I don’t want any tea getting in the little jet holes.
oooh, epsom salts and tea! :P

Missy

Yeah I don’t use the bath tub either. A large bucket works well. Then you can get your ankles too.

Indigobloom

yeah. It feels like something I should do at the cottage :P

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
