From Adagio Teas

Stay cool with this refreshing, spa-inspired blend of cucumber and premium Chinese white tea. Excellent over ice, this unexpected pairing will leave you relaxed and centered; a lot more convenient than placing cucumber slices on your eyelids.

I am wondering if the White Cucumber I am having today is the same as that noted by others a few years ago. Perhaps Adagio changed the formula? The reason I say this, I get none of the harsh smell from the leaves. A mild “green” aroma but nothing much else. There is definately no cinnamon others had mentioned. A hot cup was a plain very mild white tea taste -not a bad thing. As it cooled though I was able to detect hints-small hints-of cucumber. Great tea if you want something very mild. Next time I will increase the amount of tea and note any difference.

Tea #2 from Another Traveling Tea Box

I was surprised by how good the dry leaf looked. There were a mixture of large, broad leaves and long needles. The smell was pleasant, though not identifiable. After steeping, the tea smelled and tasted like a mild cucumber water. The tea base was quite smooth, but not that flavorful. The second steep was completely flavorless.

I would love to sample more cucumber white teas, but I don’t feel the need to try this one again.

I have to give Adagio credit for creating a tea that tastes exactly like a cucumber. This is one of those teas that you like the taste, but you don’t want that taste in a tea. Not a tea that I want to drink again, but I can’t say it was poorly flavored. Props to this tea for giving the flavor it claims by the name.

Oddly enough I LOVE this- I bough a large canister of it. Although you have the steeping time right. It doesn’t need the full 7 min. I like 140 for 3. Best cold. My FAVORITE is (the now sold out) Cucumber Melon green tea by 52teas. I want to make a white version by combining this w/ an equal part of Golden Moon’s White Persian Melon.

That sounds really good. Let me know how it is.

I opened this tin and was greeted by a surprising vinegar/pickle scent. The tea retains some of the scent after steeping. The taste is definitely that of cucumber, which pairs nicely with the delicate white. I like cucumbers, but not necessarily in my tea.

Give it a try iced.

I didn’t have an issue with the scent of the dry leaves. They just smelled kind of plain to me. I chose a low temp and low steep time to avoid cooking the cukes.

165/1.5 min. It’s not bad. Smells like cucumbers and tastes like it, too. I’m not picking up any tea taste, more like liquid cucumber, no spiciness whatsoever. Actually, I think it’s pretty neat, but it’s not what I’d look for in a tea.

The coloring of the white tea reminds me of the South India Oothu from TeaG. With the higher brewing temp, I am sure they are related. I would of loved this tea, if it wasn’t for the cucumber flavor. The smell of the dry leaf wasn’t exactly appetizing. It smelled like a cucumber that’s been in the fridge for alittle too long. And I love cucumbers, I used to buy cucumber to just put in my ice water to flavor it! I think this is just an iced tea. I had this as a hot tea. Yeah, not good. Thank you Doulton for a taste of this tea.

This is one of my favorites cold (well I can probably call it my fave now since my fave is sold out), but I prefer it at 140 degrees for 1-3min. Very good hot, but yes… much better cold.

I think this tea is awesome! I like lighter tasting tea, so I didn’t follow Adagio’s recommendations for brewing:

1st infusion: 1.5 tsp/8 oz, 2 mins @ 170 degrees.
2nd: same as above, 3 mins

It’s a beautiful, incredibly refreshing cold tea on a summer day.

Double cup iced, 2 Truvia. The more I drink this, the less I like it. The dry leaves have a revolting smell, but at least it’s no so bad brewed. It’s not really bad, just not great.

Cofftea

I think your mistake is that you’re sweetening it. Try 2.25g of tea per 6oz of purified water steeped at 180 degrees F for 7 min. If you want it iced, do NOT use regular ice cubes. Make extra tea and use them.

I received a small envelope of Adagio White Cucumber with an order, and my initial impression was rather negative. The dried tea smells like vinegar!

Fortunately, that unpleasant scent dissipates quickly as soon as hot water is poured over the leaves. The brewed tea is light and refreshing. The cucumber flavoring is unmistakable, and the base appears to be the standard white tea used by Adagio in most (all?) of its flavored white tea blends, from Fujian province in China.

Is white tea the new green? For a couple of years I was not really paying attention to the tea scene—just drinking sencha and sencha-style blends or else coffee—and there were some big changes during that period. One is the dominance of the silken sachet method of brewing; the other is the surprising emergence of a wide variety of white teas. I suppose that I could say Keurig, too, but I cannot imagine that very many tea connoisseurs are using that machine. (Why?)

I like this tea, but since I used it as a predominant component of one of my custom blends (hrh emperor oliver #2), I probably will not buy it separately. I am needless to say relieved that the strong vinegar scent of the dried tea does not affect my enjoyment of the brewed tea.

I think I brewed this too strong. It definitely had more of the pickle taste that you can smell initially. Ehhhh.
