78 Tasting Notes
I have this tea whenever I go to my friends house, or whenever we have to travel for work. This is probably my favorite bagged green tea – heck it’s one of my favorite green teas period. It’s pretty light and even a bit sweet, taste wise, and doesn’t leave a grassy aftertaste that I’m used to with a lot of plain green teas. I love the mix of the tea leaves and the matcha.
I’m definitely making someone run to costco for me and pick some of this stuff up.
My friend gave me a couple bags of this to try after visiting her house. I have to say that I love it! The taste definitely reminds me of a cold day and needing something good to put your hands around and warm up to.
It’s sweet, but not over bearing, and the cinnamon brings in a really nice spice to it. It really lives up to it’s name I guess! This is a great alternative to chai tea I would have, but not want to make a latte out of.
No additives needed! If anything I think they’d take away from what this has going naturally.
Funnily enough, when I went to the Adagio Tea store in IL among the teas I bought were this, white peony, and the Gemini blend. Gemini has both white peach, and white peony in it.. IDK I THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY.
I’ve definitely noticed that I’ve been making fruity teas less and gravitating heavily towards these light white, and green teas. They’re just so refreshing! I can’t help it.
I had bagged white peach from Trader Joe’s and find it quite pleasent so I was very excited to try out Adagio’s blend. Since they make a fresh cup for you in store to sample I knew exactly what I was buying, and I have to say I loved it so much I bought 4oz instead of just a 2 oz bag.
The leaves are very airy so you have to use 2tsp instead of 1tsp per cup (which I’m more used to seeing). The only thing stopping me from giving this tea a 100 is that I wish the peach was a little more prominent in the aftertaste.
I got a Breville tea maker with my money for Christmas! Good news about it is I’m making a lot more tea! Bad news is it’s very sad watching all my teas dwindle down, especially since I was used to only making one cups worth before. I still love it though.
ON TO THE TEA THOUGH! I recieved this as Christmas present and admittedly was VERY intimidated to crack into it since it is described as a strong flavored blend. I love black teas, but I usually add milk and sweetener to them. Keeping that in mind I was very aprehensive to just try this without any addatives.
After brewing it the tea smelled almost fruity, but nutty at the same time. Maybe fruity isn’t the correct way to describe it.. It smelled sweet in any case. This was reassuring for me, and taking my first sip did not disappoint at all. The apricot is pleasant, and like the smell, this tea has a natural sweetness about it that makes not not require to add anything at all!
To sum it up, I thought this was going to be an overpowering, strong, black tea but it was not the case at all, and I love it.
I only have enough for about 2 more cups of this. I’m really going to miss it. The chai kick really makes this a unique cup in comparison to all my other fruity teas. I’m not even entirely sure that fruity tea is a good way to label this tea. It’s like chai, and green with good tangy undertones. Which sounds weird when I type it but it is REALLY GOOD! I might have to get some more. :9
