I had to break my rule about not buying tea until my cupboard was under control. These Adagio teabags were on the clearance rack at work (grocery store) and I had to seize the opportunity because a) I had no idea Adagio was even in grocery stores, b) I’ve been super-curious about their teabags, and c) I would mostly be interested in using their teabags at work… and had an hour to kill in the breakroom.

I think these were probably discontinued due to a packaging issue. The box is labeled Tropical White – White Tea with a steeping suggestion of 180 for 7min, whereas the inner pouches say Tropical White – Green Tea (huh?) and suggest “simmering water” for 3min. Also, all the clearance-priced teas were in boxes, while the ones in the tea aisle were in larger pouches.

Anyway… I probably wouldn’t have chosen white tea if I had another option, but this was all that was left by the end of the day. I steeped it in water from the hot spigot in the cafeteria… so I didn’t have much control over the temperature.

I was… not awesome. I’m also not fond of the only other Adagio white I’ve ever had… for exactly the same reasons. I didn’t taste the tropical flavors over the odd, musty-bread sort of taste. I tried a second cup with sugar, and it didn’t change much. I also tried it at 3min, then let it go for another 4… because I honestly don’t know which is correct off the top of my head. I don’t usually drink white teas. Neither was any better or worse.

So… yeah. The teabags might be alright, but this wasn’t.

I’m not liking the smell of this tea. It’s supposedly coconut and pineapple, but I’m getting a smell I can only describe as hoover bag dust. I don’t know what’s causing it, but I don’t like it. And it’s quite pervasive.

To taste, this tea is kind of floral. I suspect it’s white peony again, but, like with the Blueberry White I tried a week or so ago, that’s all I can taste. No pineapples, no coconut, just white peony. This isn’t in itself unpleasant, but it’s not the tropical white I was promised.

So, again, great white tea. Shame about the (non existant) flavouring.

Bleh. I knew this tea wasn’t going to be good as soon as I took the first whiff. It had a weird artificial coconut-y smell that reminded me of cheap air freshener. Went ahead and brewed it anyways and it tasted like dirty socks. Had to chuck it halfway through because I thought I was going to be sick. There is no detectable pineapple or even white tea flavor to the tea at all since the horrible fake coconut flavor overwhelms everything. Got this as a sample from Adagio with another order. Obviously, not recommended.

Got this as a sample along with a bulk order I conducted for me and my friends. Smelled suspiciously like strong cheese out of the bag, and though I love coconut teas, there’s far too much of it in this blend. I can barely taste the white.
