I must say, I love silver needle tea, but adagio’s silver needle was somewhat of a disappointment. First it was almost old looking (the leaves), the color was ok in the tea the taste was very bland, your artichoke notes, toasted grain. there was not very much after steeping once. One steeping was all I got. score 85
From the aroma of the leaves I did not think I would like this much, but I decided to try it anyway. (Hot, no milk, no sugar). The smell of the tea is strange, it smells very strongly of coconuts, but the flavor is mild. It tastes like coconuts, but it is not overpowering flavor like you think it would be based on the smell.
There is an aftertaste, it is sweet. I cannot identify what it is, but I like it. I’ll update more after I finish the pot.
So this tea, like all teas, got cold after a little while, and the taste of coconut became stronger and the aftertaste was more prevalent. I did not like this, but I did enjoy it hot. Worth a try.
Mmmmmm…niiiiice. This tea is hitting the spot! Its very visually appealing when u first put it in cup- it is like lil friggin monkey claws! Too cute! The taste is very smooth, with a nice malty touch and a hint of chocolate notes for sure. Its very satisfying and filling while I snuggle here in my sweats on a cold day . Yes I did actually get to the gym earlier but that was hours ago and now I’m satisfying my craving for warmth. When I was working out I was trying to distract myself from the pain by thinking of the blueberry white tea I would have iced when we got home..well, that never happened and I’m now chilled enough that iced anything makes me shiver. I suppose I could turn the heat up but I kinda like the briskness in the house- keeps me going. That and keeps me wanting more and more tea and thats never a bad thing!!
This one my daughter and I loved. It is like having a granny apple on a warm summers day. When opening the container to pouring in the cup. The aroma filled the kitchen of apples. I was blown away on the size of apple pieces that was in the tea. Yes, my first time having loose tea.
The liquors sent and color was pleasing to me. I tossed it around a little as if to taste wine. Seeing its hue clasp within its self and relieving more of its bountiful notes. It taste like a warm cup of apple juice, but with out the sweetness. It held the a bit bitterness that green apple hold within its savoring juices.
It makes me picture the orchards of yesterday. Making homemade applesauce with Mom. Just slipping away into memories of before.
One of the best white teas I’ve ever tried!
This is a wonderful white tea and very underrated. Discovering it was a pleasant surprise for me. In my book it ranks second only to a nice Silver Needle and not by much.
Tea brews to a dark yellow, will turn brown if brewed longer than 3-4 min.
Flavor is rich and delicious with a strong grassy undertone, leaving a slightly sweet aftertaste in your mouth. Leaves are unbroken and not fermented at all, tea will not turn bitter if over-steeped.
One of the best things about this tea is the aroma – for a white tea it has an unusually strong, grassy, and earthy bouquet. Excellent!
Talk about a healthy drink!
I order these from Adagio by case and they end up being around $1.50 per bottle. To me, it doesn’t get any better than this when it comes to grabbing a bottle on my way out the door.
Sugar-free, antioxidant-rich, mild-flavored beverage! Don’t expect it to taste sweet, it doesn’t. Just a simple white-tea flavor. Certainly beats a bottle of spring water (at least I know what I’m paying for!) for taste. And beats the pants off sodas or “vitamin water” (loaded with sugar and sodium) for health benefits!
And I love this ingredient list: “White tea. Water”. That’s all I need, thank you!
Trust Auggy to send me a conundrum in a tin. [Hahaha, just kidding. Love you, Augs.] But seriously y’all, this tea belongs in a carnival somewhere between the bearded lady and the contortionist. It is bizarre.
The leaves will punch you in the sarcophagus if you aren’t ready for the stench when you open up the tin. And yes, I am going to call it a stench, because I don’t think it’s an extremely appealing smell. It smells like brine, with maybe a hint of cucumber [but just a hint]. There’s a spicy nudge that almost smells like cinnamon, but it has that sweet edge Auggy was talking about so it really reminds me a lot of Red Hots, which I was never a fan of. Sometimes it has this sharpness to it that reminds me of when I got pine sap on my hand one time and it was really hard to get off and smelled kind of nasty. It’s one of those smells that is impossible to ignore and makes your nostrils feel not unlike they’re being poked with a skewer.
With a smell this pungent, you’d think the tea would be inarguably disgusting, but surprisingly, or not surprisingly as I am discovering with Adagio’s smell to taste ratio, I didn’t find this to be true. This was one of the rare cases where I was so glad the taste did not live up to the smell that I let out a huge sigh of relief after the first sip.
It kind of tasted like cucumber, but even more of that cinnamon/Red Hots note came out in the taste. Surprisingly enough, I didn’t hate it. The scent of the liquid is still a liiiittle bit overwhelming, but the taste was surprisingly mellow. Cucumbers, a cross between dill and sweet pickles, and Red Hots. There is nothing in my head that say those flavors should meld together, but for whatever reason worked okay.
As it moved to luke warm, it began to get a little bit sweeter, which I liked. But when it cooled, the any taste I could pick out was pretty much gone. It sort of tasted like cucumber water, which I can make a little more easily by just sticking cucumbers in water. EDIT TO ADD: Somewhere around here, in the lukewarm range, I also was getting the flavor of plain, unbuttered popcorn. That kind of weirded me out. Not sure where it was coming from, but it wasn’t completely unwelcome.
So, for the novelty, I’ll probably finish off this sample tin. I’ll just have to hold my nose a bit because the stink of the leaves is strong enough to actually make my eyes water. [I wish I were kidding.] But this definitely isn’t something I’m going to buy.
I’m still a teanoobie, but this has become one of my “go-to” teas. I don’t know what kind of drugs they lace this stuff with, but it literally makes me feel good every time I drink it. I love the peachy fragrance. I sweeten it with clover honey. Love it, love it, love it.
