428 Tasting Notes
Yum! Love me a banana flavored tea. This one sadly didn’t have a lot of banana flavoring but the taste was still good. I really like the black tea base SBT uses and it works with the flavors here really well. I was able to get a couple sweepings out of this.
Here is the rest of my review:
Flavors: banana, Berry
I love a mint green tea. So refreshing and crisp. So when I was in Chicago a couple months ago and was able to go to an Adagio store, I instantly grabbed a bag of this. Been wanting to try it for a while. Probably one of the mintiest teas I have ever had. Not sure how often I’ll reach for it, but its good to have to play around with and maybe add a few herbals into.

Flavors: Green, Mint
I tried to step outside my “tea” box and try a red rooibos blend. Yeah. . .still not for me. I think I passed this one along to Shae. The ginger and peach flavors were nice, but that aftertaste from the red rooibos I just couldn’t get past.
Hopefully someone will enjoy it more than me.

Flavors: Ginger, Medicinal, Peach
This is just so good! Rich, creamy, caramel matcha goodness with a very slight hint of saltiness. I have tried Red Leaf’s matcha before but for some reason I haven’t tried this one. So impressed. Threw some in cold almond milk. Yum!
Makes me very tempted to make an order. . .
Flavors: Caramel, Salty, Sweet
This tastes just like a grape drink you’d get at primary school. Not something I’d reach for all the tea, but it makes a decent iced tea. The grape flavor is about all you can taste with a slight hint of cranberry in the background giving some tartness. I really can’t taste anything else.
Flavors: Grapes, Tart
I am a complete newbie when it comes to Pu-erh. I’m at a loss. It is almost intimidating to start down that road. But after having this, I think I want to start that trek.
The earthy tones that came out where fantastic. And the cinnamon added a sweetness to it. I really enjoyed this and drank it fast. I’m excited now to try some more.
Here are ramblings from my first experience. . .
Thank you Shae for introducing me to this adorable shop! I am jealous of people that have these awesome little shops around them. There isn’t anything like that or even a tea shop around me. There are tea rooms but they serve flavored Lipton or ROT, which is fine. Just nothing to creative there.
Shae gave me a huge sample of this in our last swap. It smelled so good. But when I brewed it up and tried it, I really picked up a lot of hibiscus. I do like Hibiscus, but this was an overwhelming amount making my first cup really tart. I did play around with the steeping parameters a bit and finally, VIOLA- I had an amazing cup of peaches’n cream delight. I already ordered more for Marzipan and I to try from this adorable company.
Here are the rest of my ramblings thoughts on this one:
Happy Thursday all!
Flavors: Cream, Hibiscus, Peach, Sweet, Tart
