drank Toasted Sesame by Adagio Teas
32 tasting notes

I’m kind of disappointed. This is my second time having this tea, and the sesame flavor is still a little bit weaker than I was imagining. I envisioned a tea with a robust, toasted sesame flavor that doesn’t overwhelm the tea, but is still very present. I can smell it in the brewed tea and in the loose leaf (and still the smell of soy sauce?). But the sesame flavor is hard to find when I sip. But take this all with a grain of salt, because I’ve never been the worlds biggest fan of black tea. And, my palate is not the most refined. It is not bad, just not as flavorful as I was hoping. I’ll be interested in what others have to say.

Maybe because you aren’t steeping it the normal 5 min?

Bio

I started drinking loose tea in 2007. I gravitate towards Japanese greens and herbal concoctions. I like most greener oolongs, and the occasional Chinese black or pu of any kind. I have my preferences, but I’ll try anything.

I am a stay-at-home-homeschooling mom to 2 boys. I love the outdoors and am a recovering adrenaline junkie. (Having kids will do that for ya.) I hardly have time to brew a few cups of tea a day, and rarely get to enjoy my tea hot, but I am stoked to re-kindle my relationship with Steepster.
