drank Artichoke Green by Adagio Teas
61 tasting notes

My first reaction to smelling this tea was, “oh man, I was looking forward to this, what a disappointment.” I literally gagged a little on the overwhelming fruitiness. Its not even like a sweet fruity, more like semi-fermented fruity. I’m having issues linking this unnatural scent to any sort of edible plant, never mind my beloved artichoke. Eh, I think to myself, I’ve had tea that smell like woodsmoke and taste like carmel and creme, might as well brew it up.

Thank Crickt I did! This is absolute amazing in a cup! The taste of the green tea and whatever they did to make it artichoke flavor meld perfectly into one glorious note. This is the artichoke flavor that permeates the breadcrumbs in stuffed artichokes that makes it not stuffing. But distilled and added to a mellow grassy base that only enhances the taste. Also so natural sweetness from the green really gives it a nice solid finish. My favorite part has to be that first tangy high note that settles down into the whole artichoke taste.

Very, very good. I’m usually not a fan of greens or flavored teas, but I hope this sticks around for a long time so I can re-order it. Not a perfect 100, because I have a hard time declaring things perfect being the good skeptical scientist that I am. But this is damn close.

I’m SO glad I’m not the only one that thinks it’s fruity! I’ve found the artichoke comes out more w/ each additional infusion. I’m making #5 right now.

Really? I tried a second infusion and thought it tasted like water.

You guys are making me crave this tea. I adore artichokes; they’re my favorite vegetable! I really can’t wait to get my hands on a sample of this and the sesame. I’m not too thrilled about cucumber though. Not a fan!

You make this sound so wonderful!

Teaplz, really??? The cucumber is my favorite. I have a huge tin so I didn’t buy it w/ the other 3 tins. Try it iced.
