1455 Tasting Notes
This is just so delicious, I’d say it’s one of the few non-fandom blends of Adagio that I truly love, and always want to have in stock. I need to try cold brewing it at some point. While it is very similar to Lemon Meringue (Tealish) and Lemon Chiffon (Della Terra), there’s still a creamier element here that I adore and want to continue drinking. One day, I should compare the three side-by-side.
Also brewed up yesterday and drinking it today – and it’s like a soft, creamy ginger molasses cookie – the best you’ve ever had. Really. Now this is a must-order for me, because cold this is just divine.
This, as well as my last tea, are now so obviously from Cavocorax, I feel silly that I questioned who I got them from. So sorry, Cavo! Still really grateful for the opportunity to try these lovely teas. :)
Brewed this yesterday, had a few sips and then forgot about it. Now it’s here in front of me, cold, and I’m still enjoying it. It’s cocoa-y, sweet, and thick, almost like a coffee mocha minus the milk/creaminess. A really hearty, satisfying cup!
I think this came from Cavocorax, although I could be mistaken… someone please correct me if I’m wrong. I went to look at who ‘owns’ this tea in the hopes that maybe that would help, and the only name that popped up was TeaTiff — however I don’t think we’ve done a swap? Mind you, I could be wrong and totally out to lunch.
Wow. This is surprisingly good. Okay, yes, I know it’s an Adagio blend just from the flavor. It’s still a hearty, creamy chai, smells strongly (and tastes strongly) of cloves and… cardamom? Something else? I also definitely get the chocolate in here, which is (I think) a first for a chai with chocolate in it.
I really like this simple tea (chai + ginger), even if I was expecting a bit more… devilishness from it, after its namesake and all. ;) It’s a solid chai, and one that I do (and will) enjoy often. Having said that, it’s far from an amazing chai ever, so I doubt I’d make a point of restocking it. It’s just nice.
There’s a new Polish/Ukrainian deli sort of place that’s opened up by my house, and they carry a really odd yet large selection of tea. I grabbed a few the last time I was there, and two more yesterday. This is the first that I tried out of that batch.
This is a weird ass tea. I love the first few seconds of the sip – rich berry tea – and then the mint kicks in, and it’s repulsive. Like mint gone bad? It’s giving me an allergic reaction whatever it is, so I’m not drinking anymore (and… the berries are blackberries, not strawberries, I checked, so this should be fine).
EDIT: Blueberry, not blackberry, because I’m silly.
Ah, I miss you, Mrs. Hudson. Your ridiculous history and gentle, welcoming and open nature really touched my heart in the BBC version of Sherlock. This tea, I was a bit surprised at the ingredients, and wasn’t sure if I wanted to try it today. Then I smelled it, and hooboy! I needed to have some. Like right now. It smells like a creamy marzipan candy, and tastes like it too.
Hm. It seems that Steepster has a weird algorithm going, where folks who choose not to rate teas, still get factored in. Why do I say this? Because this tea is only rated 76, yet the two folks who did rate it, rated it very highly. While I understand that there are some factors beyond our knowledge (and it’s pretty easy to figure out when you rate a tea 100 and you’re the first who did), however non-ratings shouldn’t affect the overall rating whatsoever. Just my two cents.
