16 Tasting Notes
Seriously- when you have to spend the whole day craming for finals, some light flowery/fruity tea is just not going to cut it. The richness and powerfull punch this tea gives is something i was in serious need of today. I was able to steep it twice and it was just as good the second time around. It is usually hard for this tea to disapoint me.
I usually stick to the basic teas because I am trying to learn about tea in general and figure you should start with the fundamentals, but I was browsing Adagio’s and I think it was a combination of it being spring and drinking a lot of Black tea lately that I just decided to order some of this. It is pretty fantastic, the cranberry has the perfect amount of power to balance the tea itself. You can’t distinctly taste the citrus flavors because I think they have blended with the cranberry so well that it creates one over-arching flavor note… i def recomend checking this out.
I enjoyed this, which I was kind of surprising. Normally I like a strong flavored tea- so I typically stay away from whites, but I was feeling adventurous and felt like my afternoon should be accompanied by something light. It didn’t have too strong of floral notes whic I can appreciate, just nice and light, all I can really say :)
So. I have a little beef with Tazo. They have their new “whole leaf” thing, this bag of tea is gigantic, its enough for a whole pot of tea. Why waste soo much tea. plus it messes with how long i used to steep a single bag. The cup I’m drinking now is pretty bitter and I was looking forward to a good cuppa for my poor sore throat :(
So this was a new experience for me. I now understand the whole ‘chocolate notes’ thing. It was a pretty smokey taste with a chocolatey after taste. I am pretty sure I enjoyed it, haha. I think I will have to try it a couple more times, maybe make the water a little hotter.
