576 Tasting Notes
Can’t go wrong with a Moroccan Mint, especially to clear the palate after The Skinny Incident.
This is a hearty blend of cooling mint and gunpowder green. It’s one of my fave tea combos and this delivers. :)
This is a tough one for me. I tried it iced and hated it! So I opted for hot tea with this infusion and the verdict’s in… it’s still just OK. Nothing to write home about. This may be my intolerance of pu-erh. I’m trying, folks, but it’s not an easy path. Pu-erh just reminds me of dirt, and not in a cool, earthy way like the Demeter perfume/fragrance. Like a mud pie made from dirty dirt.
I’ve steeped it multiple times – meaning once letting it steep for five minutes, and this recent cup, for just under two minutes. There is flavor but it’s not a fave.
This will go into my Tea Swap rotations, or I might sell it in a lot to add more money to my tea budget – and necessary surgery fund.
Great tea of the afternoon!
Please see other notes; this is a fave!
Backlog – drank this iced (but without the tea cubes this time) last night. It’s so fun and refreshing and I personally love the color. :) Please see other notes; this is a fave of mine.
Oh I love you, Carrot Cake Oolong! I purchased some from the Last Chance sale at David’s Tea and I’m so glad I did. This is one I will really miss. It’s sweet but not overly sweet. (Perhaps the carrot adds that sweetness.) It tastes like carrot cake, one of my fave vegetables. Cake can be a vegetable if there is one in it! ;) So delish. I’m glad I stocked up!
I’ve tried this iced and it’s OK, but I’m not prepared to sacrifice any of my stash for “OK.” I’ll keep it as a hot treat!
I just love this fragrant, dessert cuppa!
Enjoying a cuppa while I’m catching up on my emails. I love my job and it’s awesome when I can be here AND not in pain, so I celebrated with a cup of this! It’s really a breakfast treat in liquid form! :)
I’ve upped my rating slightly, since I’m more tolerant of bergamot and earl greys now. It’s still not my fave, but that lavender level of taste really evens out the earl grey.
I previously enjoyed this and would have rated it high, but this latest batch tastes off. I don’t know if the formula changed or what, but the chocolate taste is very off-putting, and artificial. I don’t want to rate this one, I’m sure the fault lies with Adagio. Lately their dessert varieties leave me wanting more – and want me to rinse my mouth out! (To quote comedian Jim Gaffigan, “Gotta eat something else, get rid of that flavor.”) It’s a shame because this was always one of my faves – I even have the old tin Adagio used to use before the bags.
No rating as this is one of my blends.
I added the green rooibos carrot tea from RoT to this and came up with a terrific iced tea variety – smooth and fun like sunshine, or sun tea. Delish!
I’ve had this a sample in my stash so I decided to try it – as iced. I’ve had migraines all this week and I love a glass of iced tea when I’m feeling sick.
This is light and airy as a tea – perfect for an iced tea blend. I didn’t need any sugar (it’s rare that I add it nowadays anyway); the coconut is sweet enough. I was also able to reinfuse the leaves for a total of three times – stretching the tea dollar is always nice.
Since it’s a sample, I’m keeping the last part to try hot. Will report back soon! :)
