84 Tasting Notes
A perfect score for this tea. The flavors are robust but very well balanced and delicious. I love the buttery smoothness with hints of coconut and vanilla so much that I will have to place another order soon (the $2 international fee be damned!). Sometimes I open my tin of this stuff just to take a sniff…or too…when it’s too late for me to take in caffeine. I’ve been told I may have a problem….
I love oolong, chocolate, and coconut, so this tea is naturally a blessing to me. It’s not very bold but more subtle- I mostly taste the chocolate with slight undertones of coconut and a very faint hint of rose. It is pretty light, even for my taste (I tend to like light flavors), but I think I’m going to try adding some of my coconut tea in to see if I can boost that flavor. I may even try to blend it with some strawberry and see what happens. I see great potential in this teas mixing ability, but it’s decent on its own too.
What a nice, fruity tea. The liquor is this beautiful reddish-orange color. I find that the flavors are nicely balanced, although I am not getting that vanilla in the finish but instead a sweet orange flavor. My biggest problem with this tea is that it’s kind of sour, in a citric way. I wonder if I steeped it too long? It took me a while to remove the leaves since I was so amazed by my cat loving raisins. Had her for over 7 years and I’m just finding this out now! She loves to chase them as I toss them across the room. That was a digression but it’s just as interesting as this tea so thanks for your patience!
Wait a minute- a chai that’s supposedly nutty, chocolatey, and vanilla-ee? It certainly sounds great, and the loose leaf tea smells wonderful. I had to wait for a sneeze attack to subside before tasting this one – darn allergies!
This tea is neither tasty nor chocolatey. Maybe that’s some vanilla in there, but it just tastes watered down and blegh. I even added extra tea because it’s a personal habit. It has a weird chesnutty taste and my mouth is a little “spiced” afterward, but it is overall not very good. I will continue to give all the Adagio teas I’ve bought a fifth or sixth chance in hopes that they redeem themselves, but at this point I swear the reviews on their website are fake or planted or something. None of them have tasted like much of anything.
I’m happy that I only had a sample of this tea – I will definitely not be seeking another cup. It smelled interesting but the smell of the liquor was very unappealing. The taste of the tea was off-balance and weird, to say the least. Somehow I believe that this is what a monkey’s a** would taste like. Boooooo.
