246 Tasting Notes
Forgot to review this when I had it a few weeks ago. From what I remember it wasn’t actually too bad, blooming teas don’t always get the best reviews. I forget the timing but I think I re-steeped it at least once. It had a nice light fruity flavor, I think it said pomegranate on the bag but others have mentioned jasmine? Not sure, definitely said guilded lotus on the package. It did a fine job of de-stressing me after my midterms.
Got this as one of my free samples in my last order. Definitely glad I did!
This tea is sweet and delicious. The leaves are beautiful bright green when steeped and smell fantastic. No bitterness, a bit floral and just super tasty. I’ll have to try it in a gaiwan at some point.
Um.. wow. I don’t know why but for some reason I was scared to try this. I thought it would be like eating a bowl of salad or something, I guess I took ‘vegetal’ the wrong way. HOWEVER, this is amazing. I don’t really know how to describe the flavors but it’s delicate, smooth, and a little sweet. Guess this is going on the shopping list…
Ordered a little sample of this because I wanted to try something from the master collection. It’s quite tasty but I’m not sure it’s worth the price (I think I used points on it…). It’s similar to a regular silver needle but a bit stronger. It’s very smooth and has a nice honey taste with some floral notes. So yes for taste but no for price.
I’m supposed to get up at 5:45 AM tomorrow but I can’t sleep. Thought I’d give this a try since I have a nearly full box sitting around. The taste is better than the first time I had it, but still kind of strange. I can mainly taste licorice, rose, and bit of ginger. The smell is lightly floral, not overpowering. From the last time I had this I do remember that it did quiet a good job make me sleepy so hopefully it’ll do so again.
I haven’t been on Steepster in a while and can I just say I love the new layout! Having the numbers on the rating bar is awesome as well because I have to have them end in 0 or 5.
Flavors: Flowers, Licorice
Finally finishing up this sample, slowly getting through the stash. Apricot is such a great fruit flavor, it’s not too sweet and has a nice little bit of tartness. Adagio’s green base is okay (like most of their bases) and this a good morning tea when I don’t want to do anything fancy. Would probably buy this again, or maybe see if they have a white base with apricot. Delicate, and refreshing.
Steeped at 180, for er… something like 2 minutes. Forgot to hit the timer whoops.
