drank Fruit Sangria by Adagio Teas
2368 tasting notes

Sipdown!!

Well steepster, I have been a bit MIA recently given I was busy with moving but now I have officially completed my degree and moved back home. That means, I have time for tea once again and thank goodness too as I arrived to multiple packages waiting for me which exploded my cupboard a bit.

This tea is courtesy of the wonderfully generous jump62359. Thank you!! As I sip on it now, I am pleasantly surprised that I don’t mind the hibiscus in this. It mellows out the sweetness of the other fruit while not making the tea tart or sour. Rather, it is just a more rounded flavor when combined with the hint of strawberry and apple sweetness. Nothing mindblowingly unique but still very tasty. I don’t know if I would go out of my way to order it but I am very grateful to have gotten to try it. Thanks again, jump62359!

AHAHA. “Soon.” Umm. We’re basically reno-ing the entire living space of this house. So much work.

So, your package still hasn’t made it out of the house yet: I’m taking it Wednesday though when I have work again. Anything you want added to make up for it? Also, it’s great to see you back and hooray for moving back in and finishing your degree!

Haha no hurry. And no need to anything as I already have quite a bit of tea.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
