drank Darjeeling #22 by Adagio Teas
72 tasting notes

As my first Darjeeling, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. The color of the tea threw me off, since it wasn’t as dark as blacks usually are. The taste is nice, definitely different than a “normal” black.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 30 sec

drank Chamomile by Adagio Teas
72 tasting notes

I’ve only ever had bagged chamomile, so I was blown away by the beauty of this tea - the yellow blooms with white petals look spectacular in the tin and while steeping. The thing I love most is that not all of the flowers are missing all of their petals, and not all petals are intact, either-it’s like the tea gods’ way of saying that every blossom can make an incredible tea.

And it is incredible. The flavor of these flowers is the richest chamomile I’ve had, with a honey-like taste and a floral scent like I’m sticking my face into a bunch of wildflowers. This cup treats all of the senses.

drank Ooooh Darjeeling by Adagio Teas
72 tasting notes

A very aromatic oolong—I assume it’s because this is also from Darjeeling. Smells a bit like cloves. Very smooth tea, like an oolong with a bit of spice to it. Anxious to see what happens when I resteep ig.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 30 sec

drank White Cucumber by Adagio Teas
72 tasting notes

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.
