33 Tasting Notes
I can’t really keep cream at work, as our fridge gets emptied weekly, so I thought this might be a nice tea to have that suggests creaminess without having to actually add it.
I wouldn’t say this does it. It’s a sweet, mild black. The cream flavoring doesn’t taste overly artificial, but doesn’t taste very natural either. I’ll drink the rest of the package, but probably won’t buy it again.
This is a nice sweet and fun tea. I drank it as “dessert” this evening, and that is kind of what it’s perfect for.
I usually try to avoid bagged tea, but this one intrigued me so I figured I’d give it a try. One bag per 6 ounces of water is recommended, but since I was using a larger mug (around 9-10 ounces of water) I threw two bags in for more flavor. I think one and a half bags would have been sufficient, but two bags was nice and robust.
There was not too much of a medicinal flavor that can sometimes happen with rooibos. Not to mention that, plus the beet bits, gave the tea a lovely deep red color. The added flavoring gave sweetness without tasting too artificial, which is always a gamble. While I drank it plain, adding a touch of milk or cream and sugar would make it pretty decadent.
I bought a bunch of flavored teas from Adagio looking for some bright flavors to mix up my work day with. Many of them were disappointing in how artificial they tasted.
This one, on the other hand, is delightful. Light and sweet with a hint of orange flavor, but not in a way that tastes like cheap candy. Whoever was in charge of this tea’s development needs to give some tips to the rest of the team.
