5 Tasting Notes

drank Very Berry White Tea by Teavana
5 tasting notes

This was just awful…sorry! The black currants were so overpowering that the other flavors were non-existent. Also, the delicateness of the white tea was not balanced by the strong, tartness of the berries. Total fail.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 4 min, 30 sec

drank Spiced Apple Chai by Adagio Teas
5 tasting notes

This is a wonderful, warm and cozy chai. The cinnamon and clove are complemented by a rich apple flavor. It smells like spiced hot apple cider that has been mulling on a stove top. I enjoy a tsp of sugar with my cup and then I like to close my eyes and pretend it’s autumn :)

drank Earl Grey Bravo by Adagio Teas
5 tasting notes

This is an amazing Earl Gray. The first thing you see are the blue cornflowers and orange peels. The scent is wonderfully citrus from the bergemont. I steep mine for about 3-4 minutes and add 1 tsp of honey, which accents the citrus wonderfully.

I am a Sag, so I may be a little biased :) This is an amazing tea. The first smell you get is a very strong earl grey, then the raspberry and vanilla-cream shine through. I would recommend using a little less than you normally would. The first time I steeped this I used to much and it was a little bitter. Then I scaled back the amount and steeped for 3-4 minutes and it was perfect! I use 1 tsp of sugar to accentuate the raspberry and vanilla. Simply Delish!

I love the Aquarius blend, & I offered to buy some of this for my boyfriend, who is a sag, & who’s fav tea is earl grey, but he didn’t like the idea of raspberry. I’m glad to hear you like it!

I agree with Kate; I think raspberry works.

Terri HarpLady

Maybe I’ll buy him some anyway, LOL, & if he doesn’t like it, I’ll drink it :)

Kate

The citrus of the Earl Gray and the raspberry really do complement each other. And the addition of a creamy vanilla tames what could be two potentially potent flavors. I hope your boyfriend (or you) enjoy it!

drank Vanilla Chai by Good Earth Teas
5 tasting notes

Although I enjoyed this tea, I would say it doesn’t taste any different than other boxed commercial chai teas. The spice is a little artificial and I really tasted no vanilla at all. In truth it’s a place holder until my premium loose teas come in the mail :)
