93 Tasting Notes
Apple and I are not the best of friends for eating. However for drinking, we’re close as can be. This is really lovely, though I think I was a bit stingy on the leaf for the size pot I made to share with my husband. Its delicious to drink though regardless. I’m actually a little bummed I only got a sample of this, but honestly, I’ve got apple tea. I don’t need more. I just wanted to check and see how Adagio did with it. I’d definitly buy this again.
One of my favorite teas, especially since I got it from Iheartteas on facebook who had an amazing sale going on in spring. I used some vanilla almond milk to give it some creamyness and it only made it better.
What a wonderful start to a lovely Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving to anyone else in the states with me!
Let me say first off, that this is my first foray into Matcha. As I didn’t have the proper supplies, someone suggested I use my french press to get a froth, so thats what I did.
This…this is heaven in a cup. I think I used far too little Matcha powder after reading things up online, the ‘how to’s’ I read online about how to make it with the press had said use a teaspoon. I’m assuming their stuff was different because using that much here I got mildly flavored milk, but it was still delicious. It strikes me as a good alternative for a day when I’m craving hot chocolate but wanting something with a little more oomph.
This was sent to me from TeaSipper, and I’m really thankful for the ability to try it without paying an exorbanant amount for something I may not end up liking.
Super pleased with this, going to try more here in a moment with more powder because I really think the flavor being upped some wouldn’t be a bad thing at all.
Mixed this 75/25 with the Adagio Cream tea because alone its flavor is a little overwhelming. This was one of the first teas I ever bought and boy am I glad I gave myself time to retry it before giving up on it. Now that I’ve had more varieties of tea I think I can truly say that I like this. The pumpkin is lovely and very light when the cream is completely mellowing things out.
I feel I’ve done something wrong brewing this. It came out quite bitter in an unplesant way. I see it says its astringent in the description but I’m not sure if thats what I’m getting or if I just oversteeped. I don’t hate it with some milk and a touch of Stevia. But I’m glad I got it in a swap instead of paying for it. Hopefully when I brew the rest I find a way to make it easier to drink.
I was brewing this at my normal 3m time and I’ve found it comes out a bit bitter for my taste. Seeing someone made it at 1.5m in the review makes me wonder if that was the problem. At any rate this isn’t a terrible tea, I’ve been using my generic green tea to supplement it when I make it to make it a little less bitter. I’ll have to try making it for less time. I wasn’t realizing Sencha was a different blend of tea. facepalm
I really don’t know what I’m doing wrong with this. I’ve tried it twice now and in the bag its smells amazing. But once I make it…it tastes almost like cardboard. I know I got this in a swap and I remember steeping it once before. I thought I noted it so I’ll have to see if I enjoyed it better the first time. All in all its not the worst thing I’ve drank, but totally not something I’d pay for.
