505 Tasting Notes
So THIS is what they’re using for all the flavored black teas at Adagio. I knew it was Ceylon, but I didn’t know which blend. Anyway, this is a good, standard black tea. The leaves smell sweet and smoky, but the smokiness doesn’t really appear in the tea itself. But that’s alright, I’m not really a fan of smokiness anyway. It brews up a really pleasant shade of amber, and was a great way to start my day.
I don’t usually go for Irish Breakfast tea, simply because it’s usually boring flavor-wise and I like my tea exotic. But I was really pleasantly surprised by this tea. I like it a lot. The leaves have a very pleasant, sweet smell. I knew I’d like it as soon as I smelled it. I will probably be re-ordering this. It’s also probably good to mix with other teas as a black tea base.
Not a very strong tea taste, but I’m used to that with canned tea drinks. It’s pretty good for what it is. The raspberry flavor is pleasant with the honey and it doesn’t have that sour aftertaste that a lot of canned teas have (*cough*Arizona*cough*). I’d buy it again… it’s nice to have at work since a lot of gas stations carry it.
