I made a HUGE pitcher of this ICED yesterday and forgot to log. I really think the way to go with this one is ICED. It makes more sense than having it hot. Yesterday I really remember the pear taste popping out.

The more I drink this the more I like it. I steeped for about 2-3 minutes today and it’s great. I still have to send a sample of this to my friend in Norway…I think she would be proud! :P

Hot Review – if you are looking for a COLD/Iced Review…click on my other tasting notes.

I LOVE how you can see chunks of pear in this! Another observation is that there really isn’t that much Black Currant Flavored in there but that is by design. Even tho I blended a Black Flavored, an herbal, and a white together I think the White Tea is the more prominent and that is what I was hoping for.

The coloring is that of an oolong, really…at least that is what comes to mind first.

The first and 2nd infusions are quite different but both fun and yummy. The first one was more fruity but not tart…thirst quenching and relaxing. The 2nd infusion is more earthy or leafy with hints of cherry and pear and maybe hidden currant like tones. It’s also a comfort. And I really like the way the label came out on this one! :)

ICED Review – I’m liking this iced (as well as hot which I will review soon, hot, but I am thinking Iced is pretty awesome – if I do say so myself)

Fruity but not tart, sweet and thirst quenching. Fun and colorful dry leaf…medium white color tint to the tea once brewed. If you like White teas – flavored and if you are afraid of fruity herbals because you think they are too tart…try this…you might just like it! It’s a happy medium.

Cinnamon and spice chocolate taste. Not a very smooth chocolate tho. The steeped aroma isn’t too bad but I’m just not sure about this taste. It reminds me when I was in grade school and used to chew on my pencil…that aftertaste you had…ek…with Cocoa Powder on it…yeah…that’s it…Cocoa Powder flavored pencil wood.

That doesn’t sound terribly appetizing.

Mmm, pencil wood…. ;p

I decided to see how long I could make this tea last – I got four good steepings out of it before there was any significant weakening of the flavour.

This oolong seem quite ‘woody’ to me. A significant portion of what’s in my sample canister would probably qualify as twigs rather than tea leaves. I wonder if Adagio decided to run the whole tea bush through the woodchipper!

I dialed down the steeping time and this tea doesn’t taste as woody – I’m found out what the taste reminds me off. You know the temperate rainforest on the cost of BC (and Washington, Oregon)? The tea makes me think of wet cedar bark, slowly decomposing in the moist climate and covered with a thick layer of green moss. Or that might just be my inner Ecologist showing. ;)

I’m also picking up the spicy note a bit more clearly, it tastes like a mix of cloves and pepper. The grapefruit is just a subtle flavour in the background.

Their white grapefruit rocks @ 3mins so I can imagine this one does at approx that time as well=P

I resteeped the leaves from last night and it’s more grapefruit-y than the first steeping although there’s still a hint of woodiness and sweetness.

I’m still getting the wood-spice smell and flavour but it’s not as pungent at this steeping time. On the whole the tea is sweeter tasting too and the tang of the grapefruit isn’t as sharp.

Second steep and the grapefruit flavour has really come to the fore while the other flavours have retired politely into the background.

drank Grapefruit Oolong by Adagio Teas

This is the first of the new teas from my Adagio order.

Hmm, how to I describe this tea? Well when I was steeping it the tea smelled of grapefruit but also of something vaguely spicy. The taste is harder to describe; I get the citrus taste of grapefruit, though thankfully without the sourness. But there’s also an odd taste that makes me think of wood (it’s not as bad at it sounds – promise!) and spice. But oddly enough the flavour combination feels very smooth on the tongue with a touch of sweet. It’s quite different from anything else I’ve drank – that’s not really saying much though.

I add this blend to alot of my teas. Gives it a nice fresh bite. Works wonders when I’m feeling under the weather.

Ok it smelled icky. Which was weird. I like honeybush and I like chocolate so that was not a good sign. But you can see by my rating that the initial weird herbally aroma was misleading. It has a pleasant chocolaty taste, it’s not the rich chocolate liquor of my favorite Valentines tea but it’s a nice caffeine free way to meet my sweet tooth.

Preparation Details:
Zarafina Tea Maker: Black, Loose, Medium, 2 cups water, 3 scoops
sweetened with rock sugar

I was feeling awful (migraine and stomach upset) so came home early from work to find my samples from Adagio had arrived. Hooray! I sniffed them all to find one that I felt like drinking and would go well with crackers, and selected this one.

I’m not tasting any apple (sad!), even though I did smell it in the dry leaves. In fact, the tea does smell a bit like apple cider… just doesn’t taste like apples at all.

It tastes like spice, but I"m not sure what. Perhaps when I’m feeling better I’ll have another cup and I’ll be able to identify them.

Cofftea

I steep this one in fresh squeezed apple juice. This is one of the rare ones I also sweeten- w/ just a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping… YUMMY!

Meghann M

That sounds amazing cofftea, I may have to pick up some apple juice!

At first I didn’t like this. Too woodsey, grassey. I resteeped it 3 times and enjoyed each infusion a little more. Not sure this will become part of my cupboard.

The effect that resteeping has on oolongs is, in my opinion, their best quality. Of course, it has to end somewhere good. And I guess that starting somewhere good is helpful, too, hee.
