772 Tasting Notes
This tea steeps to a very light red colour. It smells delightfully of pineapple and hibiscus primarily.
The sourness of the hibiscus comes through strongly on the taste, but also there is a feeling of the tropics in the aftertaste when the flavours of pineapple and coconut come through.
I just found this site, so I thought I’d try to review a tea! This is the tea I’m drinking this morning. I’m almost all the way through the 3 oz I got from the black tea-of-the-month club from Adagio.
While this isn’t my favourite tea, I do like it enough to keep drinking it every day until it is gone. Considering I have at least 35 different types of tea on my desk at work and at least 10 at home, this is saying something. This tea is middling dark with a smokey flavour with a bit of tobacco and malt. I do add milk and a tiny bit of sugar so there is a sweetness to it that there might not be for those who drink without. A bit over a teaspoon of tea to 14 oz of water.
I usually steep twice and it holds the flavour pretty well. 3 minutes on the first steep and 4 minutes on the second.
