Another Adagio tea. I’m really trying to get through rating the rest of my teas before purchasing any new ones. There’s a lot of Adagio teas left in my drawer. I loved Adagio when I first started drinking a lot of loose tea, but now I find their teas just ‘eh’. I kind of had to force myself to choose this one today, hopefully it will pleasantly surprise me.
The dry leaves smell sweet and fruity. I noticed a nice fragrant and fruity aroma while the tea was steeping. The tea has a malty and mango scent. The flavor is malty and fruity with a fresh mango finish. There is a slightly bitter aftertaste, but adding milk and sweetener gets rid of that. I don’t know why I always forget how much I enjoy Adagio Teas. Sure, they’re not comparable to Della Terra, but for that first sleepy cup of the morning they do very nicely. The mango flavor is a tad bit on the fake side, but not horribly so. And it is definitely a mango flavored tea, the taste is overwhelmingly of sweet mango. I think this would make an excellent iced tea during the summer, I may have to try it with the little I have left in this sample pack!
