176 Tasting Notes
I’m taking this down a few notches since the past couple of times I’ve had this it’s been a bit bitter. I still enjoy it, though. I just think it’s a little finicky when it comes to steeping time.
This was from MeghannM. It smells delicious. I added some milk to this, which made it extra smooth. The tea was very dark, almost like coffee. I was expecting yuckiness like I normally get with Adagio’s flavored blacks, but this one was a pleasant surprise. I’ll definitely be making this one again. The only thing I didn’t like about it was the dryness in my mouth afterward. But other than that, I liked it a lot! Thanks MeghannM!
This was good on its own, but I also think it would would be good to add to other teas. I’m thinking of adding it to strawberry.
I love this one with sugar and milk. I had it in the afternoon for a little pick-me-up after a disastrous walk with my dog. It was so windy that she actually got blown over sideways and I felt terrible. I promised her I’d never bring her out when it was that windy ever again. My poor dog…!
I had this for dessert with milk and sugar. It made for a very rich, very delicious treat.
This isn’t doing it for me today. It’s not as good as I remember it being.
I got this yesterday as a free sample inside my ROT catalog. I figured a green would be a little gentler on my stomach (which still bothers me every day, which is why I haven’t been having much tea lately. I’ve made an appointment to find out if I have another stomach ulcer). Plus when I first started drinking tea, I didn’t like greens because of the grassiness. But I’ve seen my palate develop over these past few months, so I’m giving it another go. I really do want to like green tea. You see, I feel like I’m missing out on a whole huge part of the tea world. It’s something I want to experience, so hopefully things will be different this time.
It smells of honey and flowers. I don’t smell any grassiness. This seems like it will a gentle, soothing tea.
Hooray! It tastes like I wanted it to; floral with a touch of honey. I don’t taste grassiness, accept for a teensy bit in the aftertaste, which doesn’t bother me. Maybe my palate isn’t bothered by it anymore, or maybe this just isn’t a very grassy green. I’m going to happily finish this cup. This was my first experience with ROT, and I have been left a very happy customer!
It’s a rather cold and dreary day, so I’m warming up with some Dawn. Ahhh, so good.
I’ve recently returned from a 2-day tea hiatus. I wanted to stop drinking tea to see if my crippling stomach aches would stop. They did. But, I also suffered nasty caffeine withdrawal, which gave me crippling headaches. So, I have 2 options: 1. Drink tea, be healthier, but have stomach aches or 2. Don’t drink tea, be lethargic, and have headaches.
This tasting note shows which option I chose.
