For the hell of it I tried a 2nd steep on this one. Prior to steeping the 2nd time you can smell a little strawberry…afterwards…nuttin’. The black tea is still very strong but the flavoring not so much. Still have to give it a thumbs up tho…
6686 Tasting Notes
LOVE IT! :) I’m surprised I like this one as much as I do! But…I do!!!!
Nice scent. Light yellow/green in color. More Ginger than Peach when it comes to taste but neither are overpowering. Some Ginger teas scare me…but this one is…pleasant.
Nibbling on some dark chocolate and I decided to pair it with this…yum…I have officially decided to reorder this one next time I put in an Adagio order…a nice change but still a great black tea, too!
This smells great! It has a Light Brown-Green Tea-with a Pinkish Tone for color. It’s quite tart…I’m on the verge of liking it but am not sure if I want to give it a thumbs up quite yet. This may change down the road…
Another cup, thanks!
I saw that rkalajian drank it and I have it in my stash so I decided to partake as well! Great cup!
This is a tea that I have stashed away and don’t drink often. I only drink it when I am looking for a change or really want something different. The smell isn’t pleasant to the nose at all…pure bark and dirt smell. The coloring is light brown. It has a very earthy taste to it, indeed, maybe even a little smokey. I’m neutral on this one. I’m careful not to over steep, however, then it would be pretty nasty.
Not as strong as I thought it would be but still good…not that I thought it would be way over the top or would win in a strong man competition but I guess I was ‘ASSuME-ing" it would be moreso. But…I still like it. It’s super dark in color and not very intense when it comes to smell.
Yup! You can taste both Green and White Tea in this. Good Mix of both worlds. I like it!
Before steeping smells like Spearmint Gum. During Steeping a lighter minty scent. Nice Minty taste but not as strong as some (ie Rishi which I love, too!)
Prior to steeping…you can smell the Ginger. While Steeping moreso the Lemon Grass. The coloring is a cloudy green tea type of look. The taste I really can’t describe….not sure if I like it or not…it’s not terrible but I don’t think I would buy it again…
I’m still somewhat shocked that I like this one like I do…but I do…it’s good to pair with nearly anything, too!
Steeped more and for longer. It certainly was darker in color by doing this. Not too much of a scent change, however. The taste is wonderful and a blossom-y/hint of Tangerine mix. I like it!
This is an interesting twist on Earl Grey. You can taste the Earl Grey but there sure is something else going on! Not for true Earl Grey’ers but if you are open minded and willing to try something new – give this one a whirl! Not much for scent but it sure has flavor…and the coloring is awesome!
No scent. Nice light honey color. Gentle taste. Delightful.
Another cup – just because
Steeped longer today. Still a good cuppa. I can really pick out the Rooibos today! YAY!
My morning tea today…just because…
yummy…almost nighty-night…time to wind down…
Minty Fresh! It almost tastes like a bit of chamomile toward the end of the sip but it’s not…You really have to like minty-stuff to enjoy this…good for me…because I do! :)
This one is just ok…not much to it
This smells a little different than the last time I steeped…after steeping (today) it reminds me of orange or grapefruit ‘skins’ prior or just after peeling…still nice…maybe even a hint of blossom, too.
