791 Tasting Notes
smooth, easy to drink, green tea. nice leaves, too.
Another good sample from Adagio that I somehow went through without noting once. It’s a solid black blueberry tea. I think if I were seeking out a tea in that category, I’d aim for the Bar Harbor version, but that’s only because I have strong memories associated with that particular tea.
I had a sample of this and somehow ran through it without ever making a tasting note.
It’s a good, solid caramel. Sweet smelling, tastes good, and blends nicely with others like hazelnut.
A final note on this tea. (I still have some tea bags of it, though, so I might come back to it.) In the loose form, apparently the raspberry leaves settled or something, because the second to last cup of this tasted a bit sage-ish to me and wasn’t as good as I had come to expect. In fact, I threw out the last cup’s worth of leaves because I couldn’t bear to think about drinking it. Note to self: if I get this in loose form in the future, make sure the leaves don’t settle!
A friend gave me a cup of this and, oh my, it smells amazing! This is one of the most aromatic teas I’ve had. That alone would make it a good cup, but it also tasted great. You’d have to like almond, but if you do (and if you like almond cookies) you’ll love this cup!
And after about 9 cups in the past two days, I’ve finished off this sample too. I forgot that I like Darjeeling as well as Assam, just when I’m in a different mood. Will this hold true for Ceylon… stay tuned! ;)
Was surprised that the leaves were smaller than I remembered them being, but otherwise, what I expect.
And with two cups of this early this morning, I’ve finished off this sample! I really do love assams. They’re what I look for when I’m drinking black tea. That being said, I’ve have a lot of very good assams (since I’m always on the lookout), so I’d say this is solid, but there are better ones out there if you’re looking for something outstanding. If you’re just looking for a good assam to get you through the day, give this one a go.
I gave a friend some of this the other day and they compared it to Captain Crunch. I’ve just made a cup, and I can’t shake that impression. It is almost exactly like it! I think if I added milk and sugar, it’d be exactly the same!
Trying to finish off this tin… and it’s a great time of year to do it… very seasonably appropriate cuppa!
finally gave up on this one. put it in the staff lounge in case someone else might like it.
