drank Southern Sweet Tea by Adamo Tea
112 tasting notes

Adamo doesn’t put preparation instructions on the bag. There is no ingredient list on this bag either. I don’t know much about southern sweet tea so I wasn’t even sure what type of tea it was. It looked like there was some black tea dust and fannings mixed with medium sized leaves that were green. I wasn’t sure if the green leaves were even tea or something else. Before steeping the tea I went on line to see if I could get information on southern sweet tea and it sounds like this is popular in the southern United States and they mix lots of sugar to the tea then serve it with ice. However, I wanted to make the tea hot with no sugar and I still wasn’t sure what was in the tea so I prepared it with 90 C water for 3 minutes.

There were so much dust in and fannings in the tea that I ended up having a lot of particles at the bottom that escaped through my very fine infuser.

The tea didn’t taste bad but it was a bit wierd. Maybe it would have tasted better if I prepared it with sugar.

I just recently got into tea (fall of 2015).

I love trying many types of tea. So far I have tried many Black, Oolong, Green and White teas as well as Yerba Mate, Rooibos, Honey Bush, Chamomile, Mint and fruit teas. I have liked good teas in almost every category. I don’t go for overly bitter/astringent, tart, or sweet teas and I never add milk/cream, sugar or other sweeteners to my tea.

Even though I have many excellent teas I always want to try a new one just to see what it tastes like and if I like it even better than my current favorites. Eventually I will focus more on drinking my favorites rather than always trying a different type of tea.


85+ Excellent and I will definitely repurchase soon so I don’t run out.

75-84 Really good and I will probably buy it again.

65-74 Good and I might buy it again but on the other hand maybe I won’t repurchase.

50-64 OK and I might finish the box.

1-49 Really did not like it at all. I probably dumped out the rest of the cup for the teas on the lower end of this range.

I am only doing one review per tea. If I drink it multiple times and my opinion changes then I will go back and update my rating and tasting notes.
