3 Tasting Notes
I have to give Adagio credit for creating a tea that tastes exactly like a cucumber. This is one of those teas that you like the taste, but you don’t want that taste in a tea. Not a tea that I want to drink again, but I can’t say it was poorly flavored. Props to this tea for giving the flavor it claims by the name.
Oddly enough I LOVE this- I bough a large canister of it. Although you have the steeping time right. It doesn’t need the full 7 min. I like 140 for 3. Best cold. My FAVORITE is (the now sold out) Cucumber Melon green tea by 52teas. I want to make a white version by combining this w/ an equal part of Golden Moon’s White Persian Melon.
I love the idea of the tea. It was cool that it bubbled when you poured it. The taste was a pretty average assam and since I was expecting a beer flavor I thought it really lacked. If you tried hard to get the taste then it was subtle, but it was not a strong beer flavor.
