Another from the quiet life! I feel so spoiled!

I’m rounding out my day of caramel with this tea (a remarkably delicious day which included Lupicia’s Cookie, Caramel Sugar Oolong, and now this Caramel Black).

I was a bit skeptical of this initially because Adagio’s tea base can be a bit strange and harsh. I really shouldn’t have worried though, this tea is really good. The tea just tastes like a plain black tea when drank plain, BUT when you add milk and sweetener which is befitting of a dessert tea, Wow. I’m pleasantly surprised.

I’d hold the sweetener, but yay for latTEAS!

I don’t usually put a lot of sweetener, almost not enough to even notice. I think it may be more of a habit…oh well, still a lot less sweetener than I used to put in my coffee so I guess it is an improvement.

Bio

Formally known as mrawlins2

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
