1176 Tasting Notes
Raising the rating here. I think this is my fave tea of the moment. and green is my least preferred type. Yup it’s that good.
So sweet and ohhhhh did I mention it tastes like sugary spun goodness? I get redundant when excited :D
Picked at random from my sample pile. I don’t even know who it came from as someone keeps messing up my batches! and Mum says she would never touch my teas… uh huh…
Anyhow, thanks to whoever provided this lovely tea! I won’t hazard a guess as I can think of three people it could be!
As for the tea, wheee was it strong! but good. The vanilla was just right, not too strong. and the blueberry meshed really nicely with the Ceylon base. Not a strong berry taste mind you, but a true one. I’d order this if I was out n about!
Mixed this with Almond milk. Didn’t add anything since I wanted a baseline for how the mint and nut dairy mixed. Peppermint was still strong, but almost perfectly muted. I can’t wait to try this with some caramel! Mmmmm
Lowering the rating a smidge. Gnight y’all!
okayyyyy there is no way this tea hasn’t been rated yet. I know for a fact that I submitted one ages ago, as did a bunch of other people. This is just ODD.
Anyhow, I have tiny bit of this left in one of those mini tins that DT sells. It’s over a year old so I expected it to be pretty bland but I think it’s held the flavour pretty well! More peach, less almond now.
Still haven’t made it past three steeps. I want my spicy note!
Hmmm. I’m not sure about this matcha! I made it hot, with a dash of milk and it was nice, and had the texture of eggnog, but not the thickness or flavour. Well, maybe some of the taste, but it was only halfway there. Adding some sugar, all I really got was the sweetness from the sugar! Plus a hint of creamy nog. Am I missing something here?!
Anyhow, it was pleasant, and I found nothing wrong with it at all. The base seemed a bit smoother, so I suspect this is Royal grade? shrugs
I’m glad I didn’t order any for myself is all.
Thanks to the traveling tea box!
Another tea from the travelling box!
I’m glad I picked this one, it’s quite nice. I see other people rating it low, but you know what, I find it much tastier than expected. The sweet potato really comes through. Not sure if it’s “pie” per se, as I’ve never had it before but whatever it is, I’m enjoying the cup. Half a teaspoon of sugar really brought it up to “that” place.
The malt and potato rolls up together really nicely, with a slightly astringent finish.
Given the rep of Adagio, I’m pleasantly surprised!
Hummm. I’m not sure what to think of this tea! It was… nice. I have a pleasant buzz now and the flavour was mild/smooth. It did not however, taste like caramel or salt. Even with added sugar and a dash of salt! What I did get was a sweet malty tea with a base I can’t quite place.
Unfortunately, it had that nauseating aroma that is a red flag for my allergy issues, but I was strangely ok drinking it. No backlash yet!
There are artificial ingredients in here, a pet peeve of mine, so I doubt I’d buy more for myself, but hey it was pretty darn tasty considering!
Also, I do hope this is the right tea I am logging. It was from the travelling tea box and didn’t indicate where it was from. Mystery tea :)
Erm… it smells great. It tastes… not so great.
Smell… yummmmmmy chocolatey tea! Taste… plastic and chocolate tea! With a rather odd flat note, I did not like it. In fact, I tossed my cup and the last of my sample in the garbage :/
I couldn’t even stand it enough to figure out more of a tasting note.
Fail on you bulk barn!!
I shared a pot of this tea with my friend, and we both agree, it’s very nice!!
Best had with a teaspoon of sugar, or else it’s a little to generic minty. Actually, the sugar brought out the black tea base just as much as it did the “candy cane” aspect.
I prefered it with a dash of milk. Yum.
Reminds me of DTs Read my lips. An excellent alternative methinks, only I’d add a dash of cocoa or sauce. or shnapps!! ohhhh yah that would be amazing on a cold winter night :P
