This tea has a slight chocolate-y taste, though it’s subtle. Vadham’s description says “muscatel” but I’m getting far more cinnamon-y and rich flavors rather than fruity. It tastes very brown and earthy to me. I might try to steep a bit longer next time.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Earth, Nutmeg
I saw this tea recommended in a book about teas and so had to try it. The flavor is deep and somewhat fruity with a rich finish. There’s a delicate astringency at the end that’s not unpleasant, but the best part for me are the complex tastes at the front. There’s a lot of depth in this tea, and I can tell I’m gonna enjoy experimenting with steep times to get the most out of it.
So, this tea is both good and weird. The weirdness is what makes it good. I add a bit of almond milk to enhance the dark chocolate flavor, but what thrills me about this tea is the sting at the end from the chill. Good sting! Not bad sting! It gives a complete bite at the end of a pretty rich flavor that is very pleasant. I recommend and insist everybody try this tea.
This has long been a favorite of mine. It’s bright but mellow. Smooth and deep. I’ve tried a couple other citrus/pu erh blends that were overpowering on the citrus. This Adagio mix keeps the citrus notes subtle enough to just complement the earthy pu erh flavour without overwhelming the whole cup. This was my daily tea for a while, but I’ve recently gotten back in the habit of experimenting. I’ll probably go back to this on the regular though.
