drank Birthday Tea by Adagio Teas
1015 tasting notes

The only thing that can describe this tea is interesting in the most unexciting way. I brewed up some of this before searching online for more information and thought “Wow, this smells just like the Cream from Adagio!” Well, duh, that is because it contains the cream flavored tea…it has the possibility and promise of being good, but somehow just falls short. However, it is serving the purpose of waking me up and contains sprinkles – so I guess that counts for something. To be fair, I am drinking this with no additives because I’m out of milk. It may be much better with milk though. I still have more of this so I will give it a try after I go to the store.

For a plain black, this is alright. But with a name like Birthday Tea, I expected something absolutely amazing…

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
