248 Tasting Notes
This smells like heaven (or IHOP), it also tastes like heaven. Blueberry pancakes are my favorite breakfast food hands down so of course I had to try this. It comes in a cute little container with both teas separate and gives instructions for mixing (equal parts basically, they suggest .75 tsp and .75 tsp in case you want to make your own mix!). Blueberry syrupy goodness. As I said before the smell is divine but the blueberry pancake flavor comes out in the tea as well, first with bits of syrup and whatever it is in the Oh Canada that manages to make a pancake-y taste and then the blueberry lingers in the aftertaste. So good.
Tried out making my own milk bubble tea with this. To keep it a bit healthier I used liquid stevia to sweeten and almond milk. Really tasty and refreshing. I’m not sure if I’ve had gelato but this definitely has a lime cookie taste to it, you know those powdery ones?
I don’t think I’d like this hot so I’ll save it for iced and bubble tea.
Forgot to review this when I had it a few weeks ago. From what I remember it wasn’t actually too bad, blooming teas don’t always get the best reviews. I forget the timing but I think I re-steeped it at least once. It had a nice light fruity flavor, I think it said pomegranate on the bag but others have mentioned jasmine? Not sure, definitely said guilded lotus on the package. It did a fine job of de-stressing me after my midterms.
Got this as one of my free samples in my last order. Definitely glad I did!
This tea is sweet and delicious. The leaves are beautiful bright green when steeped and smell fantastic. No bitterness, a bit floral and just super tasty. I’ll have to try it in a gaiwan at some point.
Um.. wow. I don’t know why but for some reason I was scared to try this. I thought it would be like eating a bowl of salad or something, I guess I took ‘vegetal’ the wrong way. HOWEVER, this is amazing. I don’t really know how to describe the flavors but it’s delicate, smooth, and a little sweet. Guess this is going on the shopping list…
Ordered a little sample of this because I wanted to try something from the master collection. It’s quite tasty but I’m not sure it’s worth the price (I think I used points on it…). It’s similar to a regular silver needle but a bit stronger. It’s very smooth and has a nice honey taste with some floral notes. So yes for taste but no for price.
I’m supposed to get up at 5:45 AM tomorrow but I can’t sleep. Thought I’d give this a try since I have a nearly full box sitting around. The taste is better than the first time I had it, but still kind of strange. I can mainly taste licorice, rose, and bit of ginger. The smell is lightly floral, not overpowering. From the last time I had this I do remember that it did quiet a good job make me sleepy so hopefully it’ll do so again.
I haven’t been on Steepster in a while and can I just say I love the new layout! Having the numbers on the rating bar is awesome as well because I have to have them end in 0 or 5.
Flavors: Flowers, Licorice
Finally finishing up this sample, slowly getting through the stash. Apricot is such a great fruit flavor, it’s not too sweet and has a nice little bit of tartness. Adagio’s green base is okay (like most of their bases) and this a good morning tea when I don’t want to do anything fancy. Would probably buy this again, or maybe see if they have a white base with apricot. Delicate, and refreshing.
Steeped at 180, for er… something like 2 minutes. Forgot to hit the timer whoops.
