63 Tasting Notes
If I wasn’t so fond of plain Earl Grey, I would probably really like this. It isn’t as creamy as I expected and the citrus is a bit too strong. But like I said, that is probably just because I keep comparing it to plain Earl Grey. I probably won’t purchase this again but I like it alright.
After reading the reviews on here, I’m wondering if Adagio has changed something. The dry leaves smell overwhelmingly of coconut. I was worried about that since coconut is far from my favorite fruit. Once brewed, you can taste the floral fruitness and yes, lots of coconut. I don’t mind it, it definitely reminds me of a tropical vacation.
So yummy! The dry leaves smell decidedly like chai tea. Once steeped, the chai really stands out but I still get notes of citrus and ginger. It puts me in the holiday spirit! The only reason this isn’t getting the perfect score is because I like it even better with a bit of honey.
I tend to stay away from Teavana since they are overpriced, hype up the health benefits, and their sales associates are often too pushy. However, I stopped in to look at their tumblers since I haven’t found one I like online or in other stores. I purchased one and have been very happy with it.
I got a cup of this to go (though it was highly recommended that I buy a few ounces and a tin). They didn’t let it steep long enough but it still had a nice balance of citrus and white tea.
