It was such a beautiful weekend and the weather was almost tropical-like – and I live in the snow belt! lol – anyhow…back to the old grind on a Monday and wanted that Tropical Feeling so I started with this tea today…yum…
6686 Tasting Notes
Since I made a whole pitcher of this iced I guess I better drink it, eh!?
I’m having this one iced today since I have it in my stash…it’s a step up iced from my last thumbs down review but I am still not ready to give it a thumbs up. It’s tolerable, however.
3 cups – as is. Tremendous if steeped a little longer – that is if you like it stronger like me!
Lovely scent. Light in color. Almost Refreshing, even!
Smells pleasant, not overbearing. I can smell the orange and the spearmint and the spice! It’s very light in color. Upon tasting the spice flavor is more prominent then you can taste the other flavors. I have to say I don’t like this one. I thought I would based on smell. But I don’t, I don’t think the Orange, Spearmint, and Spice blend well at all in this tea. Maybe my sink drain will like this one better.
It doesn’t smell but it has a nice color. Just a hint of Apricot – more of a tea taste tho. It’s fairly good for a ‘cheap’ tea.
I steeped more of the loose leaf and for longer and I like it even better than the first time I tried it. Check out my previous review for this tea here http://www.steepster.com/teas/adagio/white-tropics
I’m VERY turned off by the smell of this tea. At first, before steeping, it’s like a grass smell, which isn’t the best, but it gets worse after that…then, once steeped…it’s smells kind of like a skunk….ewww! The coloring is a typical green tea color but with a some cloudiness. The taste isn’t THAT bad but I certainly have had better. For once, I really can’t get past the smell…sorry
I’m on my 4th cup for far today. Oh how I’ve missed this tea. It smells wonderful! Strong Blueberry Scent but when it comes to taste it’s a strong black tea with blueberry highlights. NICE. I like it a lot!
Just like my tea I prefer my Chai plain. Switched to DeCaf for the night, thought this would be a good start for the evening…
Good ICED, too! YAY!
Very Floral tasting today on this one. I’m drinking this while having lunch…on today’s menu…Dr. McDougall’s Vegan Curry Brown & Wild Rice Fruited Pilaf. Thought it would be a nice pair.
Steeped more of the loose leaf and for longer. I’m looking for strong today. This is not the strongest but can be made strong if you want it to be…the aroma is beautiful!
For some reason this hits the spot this morning! Nice Black Tea. Strong, Bold. NICE.
2 infusions…very dark, very strong! LOVE IT!
Over steeped time and portion-wise just for kicks. The more/longer you steep the more the smokey flavors comes thru…worth a shot, I guess. But I missed the Grapefruit blend I got from the first attempt…so with this…I think I will follow the instructions to a tee…or should I say TEA? Still a nice strong tea.
Prior to steeping it was a slight minty grass type smell. While steeping kind of smells like socks. Ewwww! The coloring is more toward that of a Black Tea. The taste isn’t bad. Not intense but not too bland either. This was a tad above neutral so I’ll give it a thumbs up, I guess.
Had to have another cup. Ok on 2nd Steep. Doable.
I was looking for something to sip on during and after my lunch (I had a vegan Dr. McDougall’s Soup Bowl – The Curry Lentil kind) and this worked well!!!
This is my 2nd try of this and still enjoy it. I am beginning to think that I like this one over the Vanilla Oolong, which is a tad surprising to me. Either way…good stuff!
I steeped a little less than it called for and for less time but not by much. By doing this it’s more of an earthy taste and not so much vanilla. Next time I will steep longer for more flavor. It’s not bad, but I think I would like it better stronger.
No notes yet.
Just a warm up…
