803 Tasting Notes
Finished this one off, too! Glad to have a decaf for the 7:45 cup of tea. Added some sweetener since I was skeptical of decaf and it turned out about as you’d expect. Probably won’t order again since I don’t normally particularly like either decaf or vanilla, but was glad to have this option when I was pregnant and nursing!
I’m not drinking tea as much lately as I used to. My Steepster use has shifted from documenting every drink to documenting unusual ones. And documenting when the tea has left my cupboard. And that’s what happened with this one.
I really love the Adagio Hazelnut tea, and enjoyed the Almond as well. It’s not quite as good to me as the Hazelnut one, but that’s probably because I prefer hazelnut to almond in general. It’s a good cup and one I’d like to replace one day… once I’ve gotten my tea stash to a reasonable level.
I am excited about the Insider Tea Club, and I am excited about this tea! I am using a small, 4oz, teapot for this, to allow for multiple resteeps and forces attention to each sip. I am doing this note from memory, so I look forward to documenting the next one a bit more clearly. What I remember most about this first pass was the smooth mouthfeel and the pale color. It was also slightly sweet. In fact, I wondered if the instructions were spot on due to the pale color, but really, the instructions were perfect.
