20 Tasting Notes
This is definitely a tea that you will like or hate. The pungent aroma is something of a surprise, and has a definite air of tobacco about it. The liquor is a deep rich brown, almost more of what you would expect from a black than an oolong. The brew retains the hint of tobacco in the aroma, but the taste is easy and quite smooth on the palate. A great little workhorse tea in my opinion.
Nice light Earl Grey. The leaves smell absolutely wonderful, brews up to a nice deep amber. The taste is light, I usually prefer a “harsher” Earl Grey in the morning, but as an anytime tea this is quite good. Might benefit from a longer steep time, may try that next.
The very green, very thin almost grass-like looking leaves produce a very appealing golden liquor. The aroma can only be described as “nautical”. The flavor is sublime, a comforting green tea.I was itching for a green today and found an old sample tin of this that I hadn’t tried yet, so I brewed up a big mug of this and it hit the spot. Note: DO NOT follow Adagios directions. This should be brewed about two minutes maximum, preferably around a minute.
