256 Tasting Notes

Sample from Zach S. Thank You!

Hmm. I wasn’t really a fan of this one. It mostly tastes earthy and smokey to me. I don’t really taste cinnamon or bred. I might like it better if the cinnamon was stronger. Oh well, it was nice to try.

Sample from Zach S. Thank you!

This is SOOO good! It’s an amazing dessert tea! It tastes like nuts, cinnamon, brown sugar, and something fruity. I’m going to have to buy some of this. It kind of reminds me of apple crisp topping. Seriously, this is delicious! I think I’ve found a new favorite. Thanks again Zach!

Sipdown.

I discovered this tea last year, and it is still my favorite blueberry tea. It’s light and fruity, so it tastes best with two teaspoons of leaf brewed for about 10 minutes, and with a touch of sweetener. But, brewed that way, it has a very distinct and natural blueberry flavor. This is one that I enjoy every time I drink it, and can drink day after day without getting bored of it. I especially like that this is a green rooibos tea, since it’s caffeine free and I think green rooibos works really, really well as a base for fruity teas. I will still keep trying different blueberry teas, since it would be nice to find one with a stronger flavor, but I will definitely be picking up more of this next time I order from Adagio.

Caveat Emptor! This company does not have their act together. My order was either never sent or lost in the mail, it took anywhere from a few hours to two weeks for them to answer emails, and when I finally got my order after six weeks, one of the items was missing.

This is utterly uninteresting. A bland black tea with an added vague sweetness. I don’t taste much coconut or spice. Just boring.

drank Orange Peach by Tetley
256 tasting notes

This evening I went out to dinner for my sister-in-law’s birthday and chose this tea from the selection. I have yet to find a peach tea that I really like (I love peaches, but peach flavoring is usually too sweet for me). This was pretty good, but it didn’t taste like peach or orange to me. It tasted like grapefruit, and something almost minty, which I think may be eucalyptus. I would drink this again if it was offered to me, but probably wouldn’t buy it.

ditto on the peach. Flavorings never get it right. It’s always too sweet or just… wrong in some way

This was a miss for me. It definitely smelled like watermelon, but when I brewed it, it tasted lightly of watermelon, but I think I could also taste the carrot which I didn’t particularly care for. I’ll pass it on to someone who might enjoy it more.

So, I’m not a huge fan of coffee, but I really like everything else in this blend, so I decided to give it a try. At first I was disappointed. It mostly tastes sweet, with a light coffee flavor. But, as I sipped it, I started liking it better. It’s really smooth, not bitter at all, and tastes kind of creamy. I still feel that someone who likes coffee might enjoy this better, but it’s an interesting change of pace.

This is pretty tasty. It does remind me of golden grahams. It has a honey-like sweetness, and a definite pastry note. It was a touch sour and a bit drying, but that’s probably because I oversteeped it. I’ll probably try blending this since it tastes like it would be good with cinnamon or marshmallow flavors.

Another thing I don’t like about this company is that they don’t provide brewing instructions. I used a slightly rounded teaspoon/8 oz. for this. It’s a new and interesting flavor. Very fruity, combined with something that reminds me of mint but isn’t quite the same. If I had to guess, I would say that this probably tastes like Dragonfruit and Eucalyptus, but I’m not especially familiar with those flavors so I could be wrong. It’s an interesting taste, anyway, but not one I’m likely to miss once it’s gone.

From Ost’s stash sale.

This tastes mostly like marshmallow and black tea to me. Pretty tasty, but I was hoping for more chocolate. I probably wouldn’t buy it again since marshmallow doesn’t really excite me, but it was nice to try.

This is a total guilty pleasure latte tea for me! Either chocolate torani or chocolate milk make it scream S’mores.

I can imagine. However, I was more interested in the chocolate and graham cracker than the marshmallow, so not really for me.
