It really amazes me how much my opinion of this tea has changed and I have to question Adagio’s quality control a little. I was in the mood for something blueberry today so I dug through my pile of samples because I had just seen an unopened package of the white blueberry in there while I was organizing the other day. It had completely slipped my mind that I had already rated this a little over two weeks ago and already had an open package. The taste between my two packages of tea were so different it’s hard to believe that it is the same tea. What really bugs me is that both packages of this tea were purchased within two weeks of each other, I double checked.
I was really disappointed this time around because there was absolutely no blueberry taste to it at all, just a hint of sweetness, and the smell wasn’t nearly as strong in the package. I had to figure out where I had put the other one so I could compare. If the packages hadn’t been labeled I would have thought these were two totally different teas. Adding sugar helped bring out the blueberry flavor that was lacking, but I really hate sweetening my tea.
This wasn’t undrinkable by any means, but I didn’t find it nearly as good this time so I’m going to lower my rating from an 81 to a 69.
