2368 Tasting Notes
Thank you Cavocorax for sharing this with me. I am not actually part of the Hannibal fandom so this is a tea I might have overlooked but I am glad I didn’t because this tastes good. Base? present, but mild. Caramel? Sweet, but not in your face. And hazelnut? Just a touch to round out the cup with a hint of nuttiness. With that said, I don’t know how quickly I would pick up 3 oz given this isn’t anything too unique but it certainly is one of the better Adagio blends I have had and am very excited to have more in my cupboard.
Thank you Roswell Strange but this is a tea I am not sad to see go. It was alright but really nothing special and certainly not something that could persuade me to deal with Teavana. I am grateful for the chance to try something that I never would have had otherwise though so thank you :)
Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing this with me. Weirdly enough, I think this may have actually grown on me. That doesn’t mean I am going out to buy this anytime soon but it is a little sad to see this go. It is coconut flavor combined with a hint of hibiscusy tartness to round things out.
So I have switched from 1% milk to skim milk and that has actually altered my matcha milk experience. For one, skim milk fluffs up a lot more than 1% which means you can’t get as much milk in the glass which throws off the matcha:milk ratio. Consequently, there was a stronger matcha flavor than usual which muted the caramel popcorn goodness. This lacked the tasty buttery richness that I love so much in this blend and the caramel was not as present as usual. It was still good but not the cup I have come to know and love :(
Thank you jump62359 for sending some of this my way. This is a great mint tea. Smooth, roasty, minty, and refreshing with just a hint of floral jasmin to round everything out. Really quite good though at the end of the day it is a mint tea and I just don’t reach for mint often enough to justify buying 3 oz. I will certainly enjoy my sample though.
Thank you Roswell Strange for the chance to try something new. Having had it both hot and cold, I can say this is definitely better cold. The mango and lychee flavor come out much more whereas the base takes a back seat to the flavors. Good, not great but the rating will get bumped a bit because the cold brew is certainly an improvement.
I thought I wrote a review for this already but I guess not. So I will start by thanking the awesome jump62359 for sending this my way. The white base is very present in this cup in a leafy/buttery way while the peony comes through as a bit too floral and maybe a bit drying? It really is not as bad as that may sound but for my personal tastes, I am just not loving the cup. However, it is always fun to try something new so I am happy I got the chance to taste it :)
After the vegetal overload of the matcha au lait – caramel, I decided to cut the amount of “leaf” in half which meant I used 1 tsp (which is still double what I would have used without guidance from the company. Unfortunately this was still too grassy and the strawberry flavor too sweet (and artificial) for my tastes. This too will be passed along and I think I will stick to Lupicia teas and Red Leaf Tea’s matcha in the future. Nonetheless I am super appreciative of Dustin giving me the opportunity to try something new so thank you Dustin!!
