drank Almond Oolong by Adagio Teas
274 tasting notes

I love almond; I love oolong, so I ordered a sample of this from Adagio. It’s a smooth oolong that’s quite flavorful – however, I think it tastes a bit more like chocolate than almond. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing because this tea is still quite drinkable and delicious, but it is a bit of a letdown for an almond fanatic like me who wanted a tea that tasted like tasty tasty marzipan.

However, if I forget this is supposed to be almond, I quite enjoy this tea. I think this would mix quite well with Maraschino from American Tea Room. This tea is screaming for cherries.

Bio

I’m a tea-aholic. I’ve always loved tea. It is soothing and warm and comforting. I always had it when we went out to eat as a child so my first association is with rich and delicious food.

As an adult, I’m learning to enjoy tea on its own merits, and bask in its subtleties and varieties. The ritual of making a cup of tea is instantly relaxing.

I prefer oolong and white teas, followed by greens, and then blacks. For the most part I do not like flavored or blended teas, and I never add sugar or cream to tea from the actual tea plant.

I’m slowly learning to appreciate rooibos blends, which I drink for its anti-inflammatory properties.
