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.
452 Tasting Notes
Mmmmm I have had at least 3 cups of this today. It has helped me feel a little better at work :)
This tea smells like chocolate strawberries! The flavor is pretty sweet. Strawberry is the main flavor followed by creamy vanilla and chocolate notes. I wish it had a bit more chocolate flavor. We will have to fix that.
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 :]
I completely forgot I had this tea. I love, love, love the aroma of this blend. But sometimes I get sad because there isn’t as much oolong as there should be in this(surprise, surprise..) so I added some of the Six Summits oolong. The flavor is very soft. The strawberry is very natural tasting and the champagne flavors are very interesting but it works :]
Thank you Alphakitty :] Mmm this is a very nice green. The aroma of this tea is extremely juicy. The peach flavor is juicy and very sweet. I can catch a bit of a floral note along with the fruitiness. The flavor is definitely not overdone and fits with the sweet green tea. Overall I liked this one :] Thanks again!
Thank you Ellyn! I love me some Moroccan Mint. I ordered some from Whispering Pines and the label said to steep it in 212 degree water for 30 seconds. I thought it was a bit odd and didn’t think it would turn out good but for some reason I find it more flavorful and bold rather than steeping it like a normal green. I pretty much chugged this down after a HUGE meal. I had a tummy ache :[ But it’s gone now :D
Thank you again :]
Thanks Alphakitty! I thought this would be a good one before bed. I have had too much sugar and caffeine today. The aroma of this herbal is pretty peachy and juicy. At first the flavor is ok. There is that peachy, juiciness I was smelling… but then it just turns to a bad sugary aftertaste like cheap peach candy. Maybe it’s all of the candied fruit? For some reason I don’t really do well with heavy fruit herbals :\ Even the really well done ones. Maybe next time I’ll go with trying it iced.
This is one of the most beautiful teas I have seen. The soft dry leaves are so pretty. The aroma is very light but the flavor is amazing. Soft notes of melon, peach, and honey. I can catch some slight vegetal notes but mostly a sweet, ripe honeydew flavor. I’m actually surprised with how sweet this is. Definitely one of the better whites I have had.
Edit: The second steep is still super sweet and almost reminds me of cotton candy. I’m not complaining of course :] MMMMMM
Thank you Ellyn! This tea has sparkles in it… I love sparkly teas :] The aroma is very sweet and earthy. The flavor is extremely tasty! I love the mixture of fruity sweetness and the earthiness of the pu-erh. Such a lovely tea :] Thank you again!
Still one of my favorite teas. It’s sweet and has nice earthy notes to it :]
I’m still surprised that I’m the only one who has logged this matcha. The aroma of it is beautiful. The flavor is lighter than I remember but that’s ok with me. Oh, how I love rose flavored things :]
Thank you for the lovely sample Alphakitty! The leaves have a beautiful deep green color. The aroma is slightly vegetal and sweet with hints of butter. It’s sweet and has a bit of a buttery\vegetal taste to it. I want to say that there is a bit of a light(and I mean LIGHT) citrus flavor in the background. I reeeaalllllyyy enjoyed this tea. It’s been a minute or two since I’ve had a nice green :]
I received this in a swap with Ellyn! The aroma of the dry leaf is quite unique. After I read Ellyn’s review on this tea I was kind of afraid to try it becuase…. you know.. pickles…
The flavor is interesting. I can definitely taste the lychee and the only way I can recognize the bamboo flavor is because I have tried just plain bamboo tea. The lemon and tangerine flavor really stick out. Everything just blends in an odd way. This is a very exotic tea and I think it’s ok. Not the best, not the worst. I think it would be pretty good iced. Thanks again Ellyn!
Lately I have had no time for loose leaf :( I’m living off bagged tea…. But I’m sipping on a hot cup of this deliciousness on my way to the gym. I needed a bit of a lift so hopefully this’ll do. The aroma is very tart and fruity. The flavor reminds me of pixie stix. Not bad for a bagged tea. Not to mentioned the bag has been in the water well over 10 minutes now and it just keeps getting better. I’m impressed.
Thank you Lariel for some samples of this! I enjoyed this while on vacation because it was easier to carry(it was bagged) to breakfast thank loose. I was excited to get this because I LOVE anything lemon\lime. When I started steeping it I got kind of a kitchen cleaner smell aroma out of it. But as it cooled the aroma was more pleasant. The flavor was very nice. It was mellow but still had a nice citrusy taste to it. I really enjoyed it! Thanks again!
I bought this at the Southeast Market about a year ago. I bought it when I was first getting into pu-erh and to be honest… this tea kind of scared me away from pu-erhs because of the fishy smell it has. I’ve only had it one other time but I thought I’d give it another shot since I found that pu-erh is actually pretty tasty :]
It’s very mellow. It’s earthy and sweet. It has a bit of a floral-ish note. It is actually pretty satisfying for super cheap pu-erh.
Haven’t had this in a while so I thought I’d make a pot. Still as delicious as before. I only wish there was a tad more chocolate flavors in it.
Had a nice pot of this in memory of little Sox. The aroma is very sweet and the flavor is relaxing. I love the vanilla almond flavor to this.
Finished off my sample of this! Of course I had it with my missed shortbread cookies :] What a delicious snack.
When I first opened the bag it smelled like vanilla bean cup cakes. The flavor is very light but blends well with the malty black tea base. Very simple. Not a whole lot to say.
Thank you Alphakitty! I decided this would be a nice tea to go with lunch. I have never had a rose earl grey but it’s delicious! I love anything with rose in it. It’s such a nice flavor. I’m always hesitant on earl grey teas because I find them overpowering for some reason, but this one is very well balanced. The rose and bergamot blend well together. I really enjoyed this! Thank you again!!
Thank you Alphakitty! This tea smells wonderful! It has a nice citrusy, berry aroma to it. The flavor is pretty great. It has notes of orange, lemon, strawberry, currant, and a little bit of a floral flavor. The black tea base is present with malty/sweet notes. It almost reminds me of berry lemonade. But better. Because it’s tea :]
Thanks ToiToi!! This one smells so strongly of cinnamon. I feel like this tea is strong in cinnamon and clove flavors. There is a bit of a citrusy flavor to it as well. Thanks again!
Thanks for this sample ToiToi! This is a very mellow tea. It has a nutty taste to it but I can still catch the black tea base. Very nice :] Thanks again!
