576 Tasting Notes
As today is my 6-year wedding anniversary, I decided to start the day with cake – liquidified, calorie-free cake, that is.
No rating as this is one of my own blends from Adagio.
I love how you can taste the chocolate, the cherry and the cream all at once, and yet individually in each sip (or gulp, in my case). The folks at Adagio really blended this one up nice for me.
Want to sample any of my signature blends? Head over to my online tea shop: http://keenteathyme.teatra.de/ and purchase the Pick-Your-Own Adagio signature blend collection. You pick the six teas you’d like to try, and can also pick some sample teas of my own.
My first Persimmon Tree tea taste and I’m in total nirvana! This is like liquid gold, or if dreams were fluid…
Sense I not make. This is because of the tea! ;)
I love the flavor palette – vanilla, and lemon myrtle, which you may not think can roll together. But these get along well. So utterly delicious and smooth…
Smells divine as well… This will be a Keen Tea Thyme cupboard staple!
I really do love this tea. I love letting it steep for the length of the cup so the final sips are bold, chai-in-your-face.
I forgot to turn off my auto-delivery so I ended up with a bunch of tea from Teavana. I’ll be reselling them – SEALED! – on my site this week, so stay tuned. Teavana doesn’t let you return tea, even if it’s sealed, which is another strike against them.
A similar thing happened with Adagio and they were very nice about it. Just wish this chai was available at Adagio…then I wouldn’t have to bother with the Evil Empire. ;)
This is easily one of my favorite teas, and normally a tea of the AM. But I’ve got a migraine so I want it now and I’m enjoying it. So there. ;)
This blend of tea and spices is one of the greatest blends out there, hands down. Sorry to all Teavana-Haters (and often I am one myself) but this chai just does it for me. :)
This is a great treat for the afternoon, since it’s low in caffeine (if it has any caffeine). It’s tart and sweet at the same time, a task hard to replicate (believe me, I’ve tried). I love anything blueberry and anything strawberry so naturally this is a perfect fit.
Terrific iced too – but today I’m sticking with hot tea for the cool office. :) YUMS!
First off, this is the bagged version I got for free so I can’t complain too much…
Yes, I can. I get the holiday part – cinnamon-y and comforting – but I am missing the spice! Maybe I’m too spoiled (or snobby or even bratty for that matter) but when I see “spice” as an ingredient I am expecting a SPICE-y flavor. Not allspice, but something that kicks it up a notch.
This is OK, but nothing to write home about and certainly not anything to go out of your way to find. Thank goodness I didn’t purchase during the holiday season or I’d be a real Tea Scrooge. ;)
I’ve got the bagged variety again.
This is alright as plain/unflavored black teas go. I normally prefer plain/unflavored green, but need an extra jolt to get through the afternoon. And zapping myself Crank 2 High Voltage-style isn’t an option…oh my, but I just thought of Jason Statham and my mind is lost…
ANYWAY – sorry, I’m totally boy-crazy but have a wonderful hubby who puts up with it – this tea is definitely good for a wake-up call. I taste the Assam variety, which, to me, is less malty and more bold. Usually I would put some sweetener in this to tone it down but not today, I need all the power this cuppa produces!
This is the bagged variety. And it’s decent. I enjoy the medley of ginger and peppermint; and the bagged variety is perfect when I’m not feeling well and not feeling like messing with an infuser/filter bag. It’s a nice tea and one I’d recommend if it presented itself to you. But I’m still not sold on whether or not you should go out of your way to find it…
