355 Tasting Notes
It looks like a lot of my staple teas – this one included – are about to run out at the same time!
Probably one pot left, darn it. First tea I’ve had all day since I’m feeling even worse than I did yesterday. Can’t taste much, but it is soothing my throat.
Wow, hard to believe I’ve gone over a week without drinking this tea! This is one of the non-black or green teas left in my office stash, and sounded good right now. Wish I had some more Bollywood Star, but this will more than do.
I’m still feeling like crap, so excuse me while I rant for a second.
Why, in the name of all that is holy, are there ROSEHIPS AND HIBISCUS IN A MINT BLEND??!?!?! This makes me want to smash things. Instead of a nice refreshing mint tea I get a hint of mint followed by that ridiculously awful rosehips/hibiscus/red flavor. UGHHHHHH.
Out of herbals at work. Gonna have to raid the crappy bagged teas in the break room next.
Drinking once more to stave off this oncoming illness. Adagio’s chamomile is really good, and I’m almost out. Darn it.
Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for the tin of this!
I didn’t get home til midnight last night, there’s a brand new blanket of a foot of snow on the ground, and I have a sore throat. The thought of black tea, my usual morning cup, made me ill, so I reached for this one for some throat-soothing instead.
I was disappointed, sadly. All I could taste was lemongrass with some chamomile in the background; no spearmint. And it didn’t do much to soothe my throat, either, even with some honey.
I like Foxtrot, the other Adagio chamomile blend, much better.
Second steep. Much grassier and more floral, with a hint of pineapple sweetness.
Wow, this is good. Like, really good. Perfect combo of sweet grassy Sencha and really sweet pineapple. The pineapple isn’t overwhelming but definitely complements the Sencha beautifully. It’s like the sweetness of the Sencha flows right into the sweeter pineapple. I also got a free sample of their Orange Sencha with my order, so I’m curious to see how that compares.
So far I’m really loving Den’s Teas!
Weird. I expected this to taste very much like Adagio’s Hazelnut, which I really like, but I taste very little nutty flavor. To me this tastes more like a very light vanilla tea with a touch of nuttiness and smokiness thrown in. It’s good, but not at all what I expected.
