576 Tasting Notes
I’ve wanted to try this one for a while, so when I ordered my filter bags this time around, I snagged a sample.
This is different, but decent. I thought with the name there would be a blend of banana and guava, but I don’t see either listed on the ingredients. What gives? I do taste strawberry and a tropical punch flavor (I wouldn’t call it pineapple, although that is listed as an ingredient). There’s a little bit of banana flavor, but it tastes more artificial than legit. Since I’m not a big fan of “real” banana, but love the artificial flavor, this isn’t a big deal for me. However it could be a deal-breaker for others.
I’m not sure if I would make a special “trip” to Adagio to buy this, but I would purchase it if ordering other things.
P.S. The name cracks me up. It reminds me of the “I’m a Banana” internet video that Daniel Tosh helped make famous on Tosh.0. He did a sketch called “Knife or Banana: Which would you choose?”
The original (random) video is here:
(“I’m a banana, I’m a banana, I’m a banana, LOOK AT ME MOVE!”)
I had this made for a friend’s wedding, but they ended being total buttheads so I kept it for myself (and to share with my sis-in-law). I’m normally not an Earl Grey fan but I’m a fan of Madam Potts so I trust her. This is a great tea with a powerful, flavorful punch. If all Earl Greys tasted like this I’d be happy!
If anyone wants to sample, I have the bagged variety I can send to you. Just PM or email me [email protected].
I am just unable to escape migraines this week. I’ve accepted it, begrudgingly. So now I am enjoying lighter green teas that aren’t too harsh on my stomach. This is a perfect fit for me today. The light blend of green tea and mate is playful and delicious. I really enjoy the smell and taste – like grape, passion fruit, cherry, honeyed almond and blissful innocence. It’s one of those rare teas that smells and tastes virtually the same!
A quick note: I accidentally steeped this for longer than I usually would steep a green tea, but it’s a tough tea – no harm done. Still tasted smooth and delish!
Thanks to Azzarian for this gem! Another tea added to my shopping list.
This is fruity and floral – a unique flavor profile for an oolong. I taste honeyed peach and bright citrus, with a delicate floral hint. The brewed cuppa smells divine as well.
I don’t have a lot of experience with oolongs personally so I apologize for the brevity of this review. Maybe I should say this tea leaves me speechless! :)
This fall fave was in the package the awesome Azzrian sent to me last week. Thank you! I’ve been wanting to try Della Terra Teas and she really hooked me up! ;)
I love the mini marshmallows in this, btw. This reminds me of my own blend, Toasted Marshmallow (an Adagio signature blend), but there are so many other flavors. The first sip filled my tastebuds with chocolate and a hint of graham cracker. The aftertaste? Vanilla and marshmallow-y. Very cool.
It’s not overpowering, which I appreciate. I don’t care for uber-chocolate teas (please don’t throw tomatoes at me!), although I do enjoy uber-flavorful teas. This has the right amount of each flavor – marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker.
Added to my shopping list! This is a must for my Della Terra Teas order! Any other recommendations?
I brewed this iced yesterday while home sick with a migraine. Because it’s so tart and fruity, I think drinking this one iced or cold/cool is better. I’m no fan of hibiscus and this tisane has some. I did sample this in the store (they often have two or three hot teas and two or three cold teas for sampling – take that Teavana! – and this is always there). It’s refreshing, but I think it might be best blended with something else. It’s a work in progress for me. I’ll keep you posted. :)
