39 Tasting Notes
1.5 tsp tea in about 12 oz water at 175°F. I added 1 tsp white sugar.
Very mild green tea, slightly smoky. I’m not sure I have all that much of an opinion on it.
This is a perfectly good blend of perfectly good green tea and perfectly good mint.
However! Nothing will compare with tea made with fresh mint as they do in Morocco. So for that reason I’m rating this lower than I probably should.
nice fruity black tea.
Wow, apparently I am the first person on Steepster to rate this tea.
So: very light and fruity. I think I’m still feeling the caffeine from the chai 10 hours ago, so this was a nice nighttime tea. Perhaps not the most stunning or spectacular thing in the world, but quite drinkable and pretty much exactly what I wanted from a lemongrass blend.
I don’t normally have milk in the house, and I don’t normally put milk in my tea.
But I made a recipe the other day that called for some milk, so when this packet of tea came, I figured that this was as good a way as any to use up some of the leftovers.
I followed the directions on the package to steep the tea in boiling water and milk over the stove. The flavor is very good, and the milk makes it very rich and appropriate for the weather we’re having (even though I’ve not actually been outside today except to get the package of tea from UPS). I think that the package directions make it a bit too strong, though, possibly because the tea starts steeping before the water is boiling and continues steeping while stirring in the sugar. So next time I will try it with a bit less tea and steeping for a bit less time, and perhaps I will like it better.
hm. I usually love this stuff, but I think I oversteeped it today.
I drink a lot of mint tea. In summer, there’s almost always a pitcher iced in the fridge, and in winter I often drink it hot at night when I want to warm up but not stay up. Adagio’s is good, and the price is right.
It’s certainly entertaining. But the taste is nothing special.
