2087 Tasting Notes
This cup has much more lychee flavor than the last. If I didn’t know any better, I would assume I was drinking a straight lychee tea with no other flavors. It is a great tasting tea, I just wished it delivered on what it promised. Nonetheless, I am happy to have tried it and may even restock when I get my cupboard under control (though I believe that means I have to go to San Francisco). Thank you for sharing, Kat_Maria!!
Thank you Kat_Maria for the couple teabags of this tea. The green base is a bit more present in this cup than the last but it is not vegetal, rather just a touch leafy. However, the more prominent flavor is the creamy strawberry milkshake taste that comes out of the strawberry and vanilla intermingling.
Well, I am jumping on the Melon Oolong bandwagon. This is amazing! No oolong flavor at all, just nice refreshing melon. I think I prefer this melon flavor to Cantaloupe and Cream even. I would definitely keep this one stocked. Thank you Kat_Maria for the sample of this tea. It seems that everyone has been loving this tea lately so I am grateful to have gotten a taste of it.
ETA: I resteeped this and the oolong is coming out a bit more but the melon flavor is still delicious.
I cold brewed this overnight and the result is a super nice and light minty tea. It is refreshing and very representative of summer. The mint is the lingering flavor but it doesn’t overwhelm. Instead, the cucumber flavor really shines while the melon adds a nice sweetness. This tea is great both cold and hot. Definitely one I would want to keep around, especially as the weather warms.
I took a sip of my matcha milk today and got the caramel, as I expected I would, but was also surprised to get a hint of saltiness that reminded me of the caramel popcorn flavor. I actually had to do a double-take to make sure I grabbed the right package. However, after confirming it was just plain caramel and being confused for a moment, I realized I had just had peanut butter and the saltiness was remnants of that. Nonetheless, it made for a pretty tasty treat.
A sad goodbye to this tasty, tasty tea. I just stocked up on Peppermint Patty so I don’t think I need another mint chocolate caffeine free option but if I did, this would be first on my list. It really and truly is DAVIDs White Chocolate Frost minus the oil. Delicious! Thank you Kat_Maria for sharing this with me. It was fun while it lasted.
This tea is supposed to have a bunch of different components: pineapple bits, mango bits, cherry bits, apple bits, hazelnut leaves, sunflower blossoms, rose hips, rose blossoms, mallow blossoms, marigold blossoms, and peppermint. I definitely would have never guessed because flavorwise, I am getting rooibos, a generic floral/fruit sweetness, and maybe a hint of mint right at the end of the sip. It is not bad but it certainly does not deliver on all it promises. I did prep some of this to cold brew so perhaps more flavors will come out that way? We shall see…
Thank you Kat_Maria for sharing a sample of this tea. Personally, I would not have ever bought this because its an oolong but I ind it is always a good idea to try the adagio teas because you never know what might make it into one of your fandom blends.
I was actually surprised by this one. I was not expecting much other than oolong but the base is actually pretty mild which allows for the candy peach flavor to shine. If I were given the choice, I would choose a different base but at the end of the day, I don’t think I would be as hesitant to buy a blend that has peach oolong in it as I can see this blending well with other flavors. Thank you Kat_Maria for sending this my way and forcing me to try this because now I know I don’t need to completely avoid blends with oolong. That information now opens up my options for fandom blends and that can be very, very dangerous.
I have come to the conclusion that Lupicia knows what they are doing when it comes to strawberry flavor. This is an amazing green tea that tastes exactly like what it’s name implies: strawberry & vanilla. Plain and simple and really great. Plus, no grassiness from the base. Oh, and it can be brewed at boiling, which is always nice. Thank you Kat_Maria for sharing a couple of teabags with me :).
