19 Tasting Notes

Deeply jasmine with the nuttiness of great white tea, and multiple steeps! It’s amazing in a tea jar with continuous hot water poured over it, for most of my afternoon pick me up. But I really have to be in the mood for a perfumed cup to drink it.

I buy this once in a while as a treat, it’s a little spendy, but unique as a blend, and I love it for night time drinking. It has the tartness of hibiscus and the bright red hue for prosperity. It’s also sweet and without any caffeine it’s a calming cup for me in the evening.

I love this tisane for night time drinking. It’s just floral and just the right balance of sweet and bitter, and it’s amazing with a little honey.

Creamy, balanced between the fragrant bergamot and the creamy vanilla. I like the big, bold leaf of this tea. The tea’s strong enough, too, to offset any of the dreaded “creamsicle” portential here, it’s still definitely tea. It’s amazing with milk, and I actually didn’t taste any nut influences.

Workmen’s tea at workmen prices, it’s red, robust, great with milk, and a real wake-up. It’s a quick steep and rich with flavor.

Fruity, tasty, as expected. Not wildly wonderful, but good as a fruit infusion and sweetened over ice.

The added orange flavoring does not do this tea any favors, it comes out like Constant Comment, just a brashly flavored orange tea. I like the presentation with the flowers, but this isn’t as subtle as Earl Grey should be, and I don’t taste or smell the supposed addition of vanilla to the mix. It’s also odd that Adagio says that bergamot is harsh, because in a good Earl Grey, the bergamot is a subtle, smooth thing, but in Adagio’s Earl Grey it is very harsh. I’m sorry I ordered ounces of it instead of just the sample.

Good, strong tea for waking up with, excellent with milk and bitter with too long a steep, it’s wonderful when I’m not quite awake enough to get it going. One 2-cup Chatsford pot will do me for the morning. Rich enough and red enough to be really excellent.
