Holy crap, these leaves are BIG! It looks like spinach in my strainer o_o
This was my first venture into real green tea (Can I say real if its not caffeinated?) and I was pleasantly surprised.
Definitely a light, subtle kind of flavor, milder than I usually like it, but its actually really nice. On an unseasonably warmer day like yesterday, (upper 50’s in freaking December, ugh) it was perfect.
The citrusy/spiciness might’ve been the primary thing that made it a “yes” for me though, I can’t imagine liking it too much without that little added zest to it, but hey I’ll eventually snag up their decaf sampler.
One of the few times I actually followed the steep time, too! I did mine with just a little bit of sugar and it was lovely. Second steep was drinkable, that spice-taste came through more than anything else, but incredibly bland. I definitely think I’ll be picking up a 3oz of this stuff next time I buy from Adagio.
