I’ve just realize that I don’t really care for the smell of this tea – it’s almost too sickly sweet. Luckily the tea itself is toned down, otherwise I’d probably be gagging on it!

“Still one of my faves. The chamomile adds such a great depth, and it is very forgiving of boiling water and oversteeping. As Cynthia says, it almost requires a strong preparation, but that's okay...” Read full tasting note

Backlogging this – I decided to try steeping this at a gentler temperature, more like a white tea,as the base is white tea, green tea and herbals. It really did not provide a satisfactory steep. The same tea that tasted delicate and flowery when brewed at boiling temperature tasted weak and watery when brewed at lower temperature.
Normally I don’t really care for floral teas, but since I’m a cancer I figured why not try it out? I’m glad I did! While this won’t be an everyday “go-to” kind of tea for me, I know I’ll be glad to have it on hand. This first time trying it, I am getting more of the floral notes versus the fruity ones. I barely added any sugar, maybe 1/4tsp, and it sweetened it up just enough for me. Maybe next time I’ll be sure to get more of the fruit pieces in.
I do love the tin that it comes in! Gorgeous artwork, and I adore the star map on the inside of the lid. The look of the dry tea itself is enchanting. Just the event of getting out this tea and preparing it is calming. Overall I’m very happy with it :)
I am just not much for Adagio’s green or white teas. They all taste like leaves and grass to me. There’s a sharp, astringent taste to this tea, like every other Adagio green or white I’ve tried. I didn’t really notice the other flavors. It was hard to take more than a few sip of this one.
Flavors: Astringent, Grass
This is a good tea don’t get me wrong. But as a fellow cancer I just have to say it’s far too mellow. Although it does have a charming taste to it, that’s not at all bad. It just didn’t do it for me as well as I had hoped. To me it’s not a tea I would drink every day, but every so often.
