14 Tasting Notes
I received the green tea sampler from Adagio. I really like this one. At first it wasn’t my favorite. Then I tried it with a little lower water temp, and a little longer steep time and it was the tea I kept coming back to. It has a nice light taste that reminds me of the smell of fresh cut hay. The sample I received had nice full leaves and stood up to multiple steeps.
This is missnamed I think. It tasted to me like Hot Tomales. You know the firey red candies. (These are in the USA not sure if they sell Hot Tomales in other countries.) When I drank it expecting Hot Tomales, which I like, then this tea tasted much better. When I first drank it expecting Chocolate Chai, I was dissapointed. I didn’t taste much of the chocolate. Seemed like I tasted a lot of ginger, almond, and pepper which is like well… Hot Tomales.
I also liked this with milk as more of a latte then plain and I liked it with sweetener. I use Truvia. While I enjoy the novelty of this chai, it isn’t one of my favorites.
This is a wonderful smooth and delicious tea. The smell is what hits you when you open the bag. It smells like fresh coconut and undertones of black tea. It stands up to 5 or more steeps which I love. I can start one in the morning and by evening it is a light brew not too strong and perfect for bedtime, but still with some nice flavor left.
I like to dring this tea while eating dark chocolate. It is like eating a mounds bar without all the sugar. This is a really wonderful tea.
