447 Tasting Notes
As far as chocolate teas go, I like this one. It isn’t one that I will need more of or anything. Really can’t see myself reaching for it, but that is just because I am not a huge chocolate fan. I do highly recommend cold brewing this one. I read on someone’s review recently that they cold brew Adagio’s black teas to avoid that muddled flavor they often have when hot brewed. After trying this method I completely agree! I have a ton of signature blends that I’m excited to try now. Ones that I tried different methods of brewing, but the flavors were just blah. These flavors popped when cold brewed. The only flavor I didn’t pick up was the blackberry. But for what it is, not a bad cuppa.
Flavors: Chocolate, Earl Grey
Received this as my second tea in this month’s Plum deluxe package. I loved it! My bf loved it! I think this will be a new staple for us. I am not always the biggest fan of Earl Greys. The bergamot oil that is used (to me) overwhelms the tea. But that is not the case here. This tea is incredible. Sweet, creamy, with a citrus twist and just a hint of the bergamot oils. I can’t recommend Andy and his crew at Plum Deluxe enough. (Shae I’ll be sending you some of this in your next box-if my bf leaves us any)
In other news, the bf has started a blog for me that we are going to share. It is going to combine my love of tea and horror/sci fi related fun in one spot plus all my other ramblings and polka-dotted interests. He had a blog a couple years ago and has been wanting to set me up. Yesterday we talked again about a name and he came up with the name and by the time I knew what was going on, CuppaGeek was born.
Woohoo. Another fun project for me! It is still in the baby stage but we are having fun customizing it and if nothing else, this is something we do together. And with having 4 kids between us, having something that is just ours is rare.
Flavors: Bergamot, Orange, Sweet, Vanilla
