drank Caramel by Adagio Teas
92 tasting notes

I’ve been on a milk tea kick lately, so I thought I’d open up this tin and churn out a tasting note. What can I say? It tastes a whole lot like caramel, and not much like anything else. The caramel is similar in taste to homemade, slightly-burnt, caramelized sugar. The caramel flavor component is quite strong and can be easily detected by tongue, but it balances well with the black tea flavor. Luckily, the tea doesn’t taste fruity the way Adagio’s black base often tastes. It’s just a nice, solid black tea flavor that supports the caramel. It is a bit astringent (drying) but not particularly bitter. However, I would imagine that oversteeping this one would lead to a very bitter cup.

I know some teas are all smell and no flavor. Adagio’s Caramel is not one of those teas. This tastes just as much like caramel as it smells. With a little milk and sweetener, it’s almost as though someone melted a milk caramel and stirred it into some black tea.

While there’s not a lot going on in this tea, I rather like it. It’s simple, and seems like it would be great for mixing with other teas.

It’s awesome mixed with Adagio’s Cream black tea..

I was JUST thinking that! Cream is the only other Adagio black I have liked so far…I think because they don’t taste as cardboard-fruity to me, especially when made with a little cooler water.

Both of those are my adagio favorites!

Umm cream + caramel… sounds like Adagio’s Birthday Blend =P

Except no vanilla, yay! (Vanilla gives me a headache…I haven’t tried Adagio’s vanilla yet, though.)

Veri-Tea

Sounds delicious!
