Adagio Caramel faced an uphill battle: I often find flavored teas more appealing in description than in practice. My tastebuds have jived with only a couple Adagio flavored teas, out of the many I’ve tried. And I am not a huge fan of caramel.
So it was a nice surprise to find this tea not only drinkable, but a quite pleasant cup – or two, actually, since one resteep held enough flavor to still be enjoyable. The dry leaf and steeped tea offered a sweet caramel aroma. Straight, the tea was a little shy of smooth. I drank it with a lightly sweetened soy milk. Those seeking a caramel flavored tea may want to give this a try.
