I’m not sure how long my sampling of this tea was in my stash, but, it managed to hold up well. I enjoyed this blend. I’m not always a big fan of Adagio teas but I find that I prefer the custom blends that the customers create versus the straight up flavored teas. I don’t know what it is about the blending process that manages to lighten the harshness of the black base … but, I don’t notice as much of the harshness with the custom blends as I get from the unblended flavors.
Sweet, creamy flavor with a nice minty taste. It tastes a lot like someone melted a scoop of peppermint ice cream in my black tea.
