576 Tasting Notes
This tastes just like the homemade blueberry crumble cake my grandma makes – one I’m hoping she’ll have on tap when I visit her and my grandpa in the coming weeks.
There isn’t a lot of blueberry flavor, just a hint of berry. But I can taste the cinnamon and cake-y part of the cuppa long after my sip is completed.
I really like black and green tea blends, but this tastes and looks more like a green to me. No worries, though, it tastes just fabulous.
Wonder what this would be like cold brewed? I purchased this in a custom try-me-pack (love those, Della Terra Teas!) but I think I may purchase this one outright in the future. Actually, maybe I’ll bring it with me to visit my grandparents.
How successful have you been, Steepsterites, with plane travel and loose teas? Any tips? Should I just send a box to my grandparents instead?
One sniff of this aroma as it’s brewing and I’m transported back to middle and high school. Why? The dry leaves and as this tea is brewing remind me of the old Bath and Body Work lotion Pearlight (or something like that). It’s delish!
It’s very fragrant as it’s brewing, but as I sip it, I feel like there is something missing. Should there be more spice? Maybe another flavor with the pear?
Perfect Pear isn’t the worst tea I’ve had, I just have high expectations from Della Terra Teas. This isn’t my fave from them (ahem, Cinnamon Crackle) but it’s decent. I got this in a try-me pack, and I would consider getting it, if I enjoyed pear as a flavor. I don’t, not really. Perhaps pear fans would enjoy this cuppa more?
I’m actually unable to drink eggnog. I’m allergic to an enzyme in many dairy products and eggnog is painful for me. I drink the Silk version, but it’s not the same.
So when I saw this at Butiki, and it was on sale, I had to get it!
This has to be one of the best Christmas-type teas ever. It’s so creamy, but not heavy. It’s eggnog-y with a hint a spice (this may be power of suggestion). The flavor is pretty light, which is my only complaint. I bet this would be amazing iced, but there is no way my limited supply will make it to spring so I can try it iced! :)
I wish this could be year round, or part of the permanent Christmas-time collection! (hint hint, nudge nudge) :)
Forgive the pic. I’ll update with the “real” one later today. Since this is one of my blends from Adagio, there’s no rating.
I love the medley of Irish Breakfast with Earl Grey Moonlight. The Irish Breakfast tea cuts the bergamot flavor beautifully. This tea is also brisk and bold – a perfect AM Wakeup Tea!
A side note – my maiden name is Fitzpatrick and I grew up in a very Irish-American household, so I have a soft spot for this character. :) I will be drinking this on March 17, which was actually the day I was due. My mom says she refused to have a Fitzpatrick baby born on March 17th, so she was prepared to “hold me in.” Luckily (?) I was late anyway and born much later in March. But it’s a fun story to remember! This is the same woman who almost named me Clarissa, prior to the TV show…but I dodged that bullet too!
No rating as this is one of my custom blends.
I really enjoy this spicy and fragrant cup. I wish I was watching Lost Girl right now, but since I’m not, I’ll have to settle for this.
My only complaint with Adagio teas is that bitter Ceylon/black tea flavor, but if you let this one steep over five minutes, the spiciness wins out. So instead of a bitter cuppa, I’m enjoying a spicy cuppa. Epic!
I found this in a box of teas from work. I thought I had either lost it or finished up the pouch, so I was glad to find it.
Over two years old, and still working on the same pouch – but it still tastes as yummy as it did the first cuppa I had. (Even more proof that you don’t necessarily need to use tins.)
The apricot taste is so delish! That’s a flavor you wouldn’t think would be all that strong/bold, yet this blend really packs a punch.
Tastes like happy! :)
