9 Tasting Notes
The Tea that got me drinking tea! I’m now more of a Bigelow earl grey fan, but this one still has the most wonderful smell. Don’t let it steep too long or the flavor is super strong. Don’t forget about it either, because it’s a strong tea to have while cold (or luke-warm).
A rather sweet, smooth tea. I don’t drink it all that often because I don’t like sweet teas. I bought it on a whim because I like black currants, and it’s a nice blend of flavors. Only I can’t let it sit out too long because it’s hard to swallow while cold.
One of my favorite teas to have, especially if I’m feeling too wound up. From time to time, my jaw will get super tense or my teeth will hurt, and this is the perfect tea to calm me down. Also wonderful for when you have an upset stomach!
This one just SMELLS delish the moment I opened the bag. I added a bit of milk (I can’t remember if I added sugar) and I loved it. Only it was a wee bit on the weak side, so I might have to either add more tea or steep it longer (because I can’t remember how long I steeped it for).
The flavor is a lot stronger than the Mad Tea Party blend, for it being virtually the same just minus one or two ingredients. You also have to be very careful while steeping this one. Leave it in for just barely too long and the flavor is overwhelming.
But in the right doses, it’s a rather nice and dry tea that keeps me going when I have a deadline to meet.
One of my favorite teas EVER. It’s a nice and simple black tea with just the right amount of flavors. It smells wonderful and I can literally have multiple cups a night and still not tire of it.
My first foray with lapsang souchong. I was a bit nervous at first because of the smoky smell, but I made about two cups of this for a travel mug. Following some advice from a review on Adagio, I went ahead and added a bit of milk and half a teaspoon of sugar.
The smell was wonderful, smokey and with a hit of spicy. I didn’t taste it as much when I actually drank it, but that might have been the milk dampening it. Still, quite pleased!
I got it as a sample when I ordered another set of tea from Adagio. Mostly because I love blood oranges. It smells utterly delicious and I was really excited to try it. It says steep anywhere between 5-10 minutes, so I let it have its way as I cleaned a bit.
It’s a bit too sour for my tastes (that rose hip is super strong), but I just had it straight up and put in a lot of tea for one cup. Might be adding some of my raw sugar to it on a second go-around, and will try it iced another time.
