878 Tasting Notes
Thank you to Della Terra for sending me a free sample of this! The aroma of this tea reminds me of Green Goddess from Tea Grotto(they pretty much have the same ingredients..). I’ve never had much luck with back and green blends… So fingers crossed I steeped this right…
This tastes EXACTLY like Green Goddess. But it has more of a darker note to it. I’m betting it’s the touch of black tea. Which is actually a nice touch… It adds something to the fruitiness of this tea.
I got this as a free sample with my last Adagio order. The dry leaf smells like potatoes… But after it’s brewed the aroma turns to roasted marshmallows and baked sweet potatoes. It reminds me of the sweet potatoes we have at Thanksgiving. This tea is very different but I kind of like it. But… Now I’m craving sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top D:
This tea smells SOOO strongly of blueberries. Absolutely delicious :] Brewed it smells like blueberry pie and ice cream. The flavor is not as in your face as the aroma… It’s very mellow. The blueberry and vanilla come through very nicely. I can’t really taste the pomegranate but that’s ok. I REALLY like this tea.
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.
