865 Tasting Notes
Got this as a nice sample with my last order. It smells AMAZING! I was expecting this to be super sweet and strong but it’s perfect in flavor. The flavor is right on and light enough where I can taste the oolong base. The orange and caramel are the first flavors to come out. After that I can taste a little of the oolong base. The smooth cream\orange flavor kind of lingers in the aftertaste. This tea is magnificent. Definitively going to order some more. YUUMMMMMMM
I thought since this was a pretty tea it had to be served in a pretty tea pot. Well… I’m using my favorite blue, handmade teapot with cherry blossoms on it. Fingers crossed I don’t break it. Usually it’s just for show but I though why not?
The aroma of this tea is nice. To me it tastes like the standard Earl Gray. There is a bit of a warmer tasting note to it. It’s good but over all I don’t really see anything super special about this tea.
Still battling my almost cold. So far I’ve stayed on top of it so it’s just stayed as a little cough and scratch throat.
I totally forgot that I had this so I made it as a bedtime cup. It’s very nice. I don’t ever remember tasting this much ginger in it but I’m ok with it. Now for some sleep! Goodnight Steepster!
Oooohh my goodness gracious this tea smells amazing. It’s so tart and dessert like. The flavor isn’t as strong as I thought it was going to be. There is a nice citrus taste and the cream is a lovely touch. It really does taste like a liquid cream tart. I’m happy it’s a rooibos base. It just works really well.
MMMMmmmmm :] I had this tea on the way to work today. I only steeped it two minutes because I feel like Adagio’s black teas are grumpy. At first all I get is spice but once it starts to cool all of the flavors come out. I can catch hints of caramel, apple, and the creme flavor adds a bit of a smooth note. Overall I reeeaaalllly enjoyed this.
Thank you Ellyn! I feel like I’m starting to come down with something. I’ve been waking up with a sore throat, stuffy nose, and I feel like something is pushing on my chest making me cough :[ So I was happy to see this in my sample box. I always find blends like this soothing to a cold.
ANYWAYS… this was a nice herbal cup. The ginger is spicy but I like how I can taste the lemongrass and licorice through it. I couldn’t really find the spearmint but that’s ok. I was satisfied with the other flavors going on. I liked it :]
