1243 Tasting Notes
Love this tea. Love, love, love this tea. Damn you, Adagio, for your insane shipping prices. Ah well, there are other teas for me to love.
I ran out of cold brewed teas and didn’t quite know what to do with myself. So I sorted the Adagio samplers into “drink hot” and “drink cold” and had to have another cup of this. I have enough for two more cups and then I will be crying forever.
It’s still delicious blackberry pie in a cup and I love it.
Today I had a Moment and reorganized our tins, picking out 10 for sipdowns/giving away so almost all of the tins fit in the drawers of our tea cabinet. It looks so much better.
Anyhoo, yis. Eric is a friend of mine, but he needs t’ go. So I have him cold steeping for tomorrow and then there’s just enough for one more cold brew. And then I’m going to work on The Mad Hatter’s Blend.
Color me surprised, however. I sent a timolino of this to work with my wife and she really likes it! And as a general rule, she doesn’t like iced teas that actually involve, well, tea. So yay for trying new things and liking them!!
Coldbrew sipdown (323/305)
This is a decent tea. it’s not great, it’s not awful, it’s not a must have, but it’s not something I mind drinking, either. It’s a peachy black, but with nothing special about it. It’s just…there. If you’re in the States, it’s fairly good for a peachy black, but here in Canada there are other teas I have better access to than this one.
This tea is three years old, and while I can see what it once was, it is no longer the tea I loved. I avoided this one and I don’t know why. Well, I know I don’t like Adagio’s black base, so that likely had a lot to do with it. Still it is lovely for what it is and doesn’t deserve to lose any of the rating because I let it go stale. Creamy berries, I’m sorry I failed you.
Coldbrew sipdown (325/307)
My father in law secretly enjoys the iced teas I make and he’s always surprised by them. Every time I have coldbrew ready when they come over and he always sighs and says he guesses he’ll try one. This time he was intrigued by the ice wine tea, as he’s a big wine drinker, so I poured him a small glass and he was very surprised by the flavor of the ice wine. “It really does taste like ice wine!”
XD. He cracks me up. Anyway, this is a sad farewell, I love this tea dearly. But I have several other ice wine teas and they will keep me warm.
