6769 Tasting Notes
Annnnnnnd…moving along…from that horrid last tea experience…
This smells like black tea with specs of holiday spices in potpourri format.
The taste on the tongue is quite nice. It’s mostly even-steven spices with a bit of citrus. Sort of like “Tang” – remember “tang” the juice drink?
It’s pretty good hot but I think this could be good cold, too.
And this one goes down the drain
after one sip
sorry…but this is NOT GOOD on my tongue.
It’s like Market Spice’s signature blend with stale coffee and fake cinnamon. gross
Hazelnut, cacao, mint, something strange, black tea, meh. Not digging this one. Not really mint. Not Cacao but not chocolate but not cocoa. Hazelnut moreso. Not real decadent. Not really a treat. I know I have had this before but apparently didn’t log it. Not memorable. Perhaps that is why.
It seems I am out of chai for the most part – I might have one or two handy – but even those are low. I’m not going to keep this one from the TT but I just wanted to sample it – before passing one.
As you can tell I am in SUPER SIP Mode today! Right now…I think I could probably run a marathon. And I haven’t even started in with the Matcha-Marathon, yet.
As for this Vanilla Chai…it’s alright. The chai flavors are not over the top nor is the vanilla. It’s a weaker flavor all around but still pleasing.
The aftertaste is a little more roasted than the rest of the cuppa but still a nice effort.
Many of you know I HATE BANANAS! But I have been try to TRY and at least consume them in some way lately. I thought I would finally try this one. I will say this – I HATE THE AROMA…but…that is ONLY because I HATE Bananas!
The black tea base is on the lighter note. The Banana flavors are present but also the pudding aspect is there. Because of the pudding likeness the banana seems more tolerable. I’m not saying I LOVE it but it’s certainly better than eating a banana straight-up so for that reason only I give it props!
Not too shabby – and that’s coming from someone who hate ’nanners
Another one from the TT. It’s been a while since I’ve had a Rooibos. I liked the description of this one, tho! WICKED GOOD! Let’s see if it IS…
It smells like rooibos and that’s about it.
The taste is…not bad. Not Wicked Good, but not bad.
I can taste something sweet…like sugary-sweet, maybe chocolate – but not sure. I’m not getting much cream – or any cream – and I am not ‘finding’ that Pie-Like comparison. It’s not highly flavored. I’m left wanting more of that Boston Cream Pie for it to live up to its name. Again, not bad tasting, just not memorable or true to its name.
My bladder is going to hate me today! LOL
I’ve had a ‘royal wedding’ type from another company or two and have liked them. This one looks and smells different. I like that.
This ‘brews’ up pretty dark for a white – probably because it’s a Fruit/Herbal/White Combo, eh!? This smells warm and herbally with a small spec of fruit.
The flavor is that of vanilla, floral, herbs, and white tea. It’s pretty. a neat sort of comfort-tea. It’s pretty good!
It’s been forever since I’ve placed an order with Adagio. The last several have only been for blends, tho. When I first started buying online I started with them. I think many of us did. Then we move on to others. It was some time after that – that Adagio came out with this one in their regular line. For that reason – is why I haven’t had it until now, I guess.
This is a weaker strength black but has potential. It has cocoa-type hints and is a little malty. I, personally, would like this flavor magnified, but it’s not bad in its own right.
I’m trying to sip these up as quick as I can to try and move the Traveling Tea Box off ASAP…there are a LOT of teas in this box, folks!! Seriously!
This one smells nice and minty but there are a bunch of other things going on in there as well!
Herbally, Minty, Bean-Like…near Lima Bean…almost a Yerba Mate type flavor at times, too! I do like that the Mint shines, here, tho!
The more I sip this the more I like it. Would be perfect after a heavy meal!
I have a dog who’s name is Riley but we sometimes call him Schmog – which, when said outloud, is much like Smaug. So everytime I see or hear this about the Hobbit Series I giggle. I had to try this! It’s VERY unique. It has a strong Caravan or Lapsang souchoung type flavor upfront followed by a mint or candy cane whaff to it. At times I can taste something reminiscent to Cotton Candy and other times something near a cough drop. Perhaps even a watermelon type hint. This is one bizarre flavored tea but I think that is why I kind of like it. It also fits my dogs personality so it continues with the theme as to why I had to try it.
