3 Tasting Notes
I highly enjoyed this ripe pu-erh. It steeps over 12 gaiwan gongfu brews, and I honestly find it one of the most pleasant teas to drink. The qi hits you early and steadily, but the taste is not harsh in the slightest.
Tasting – It’s a lovely ripe with no harshness. Great mouthfeels, it’s not too heavy or earthy mouthfeels, but I can still feel the thickness of the tea. The taste was fruity and earthy with any hint of bitterness gone by the third pour. I kept tasting plums which I don’t normally taste that in tea.
The reason I said 12+ pours is that the longest I lasted was 12 pours, this could easily last more than that. A really enjoyable tea.

Tried this flavour with a bunch of others from Adagio. 6 of us drank, 5 liked this flavour best. Especially the vegan people in the group _ Will definitely order this in the future and recommend it as a dessert tea with biscuits and jam.
About the tea – It’s a flavoured black, to me tastes of vanilla and caramel flavouring but everyone else said it tasted creamy. The actual black tea taste was very mild. I found it quite enjoyable as one of those flavoured desert teas you have with biscuits and jam.
This tea or any of the Adagio range is not by any stretch a FF high-grade connoisseur tea, but that’s not why we were drinking it. It’s more of a high-end consumer tea.
Flavors: Caramel, Cream, Tea, Vanilla
