719 Tasting Notes
People make fun of how I make tea because I like my tea very… bland? Well, I steeped this for about 2 minutes and it was the perfect amount of time for me!
The smell of this tea right out of the tin, oh it was amazing. It smells like the weeks leading up to Christmas. Not exactly Christmas though, that’s the Watson blend for you. It had such a hearty aroma out of the tin and steeping it, I felt like the Irish breakfast took over and lost a bit of the cinnamon. But adding a dash of sugar helped bring out the sweet potato and cinnamon!
**With more experimentation, I’ve decided that Bilbo Brew with just a small dash of milk and suger is amazinggg. But with milk, I had to steep it a little bit longer. Like… almost 7 minutes. I’m weird with how I like my tea okay
I’ve never had white tea before so I decided to get a white tea sampler from Adagio.
This is the first white tea I’ve had and it’s… different. Very different compared to the green and black teas I’m used to.
It has a grassier, more organic taste compared to the robust and fruitfulness I get from my flavoured black teas. Though it’s very different, I’m actually enjoying this cuppa.
I was SO excited when my tea from Adagio finally arrived!
First of all, I’d like to say that Adagio does care about their customers. They were aware that my package was going to be delayed because one of the teas I ordered wasn’t available in the warehouse closest to my city. I set it so that Adagio would send me direct messages through twitter to track my package and when it finally arrived in California, I was ecstatic! I opened the package and found a note from them saying apologies for the delay. I just really love Adagio :)
Anyways, the tea! Ori was the one I was most excited for when I looked at the teas that came in the sample set. The sample tins were packaged very nicely. Each tea in a tin with a sticker of the art. Ori looked amazing and SMELLED amazing. The cream aroma is pretty strong when you open the tin, but the flavour gets lost after brewing. And I’m not getting much Lemon…
Okay this tea, IT’S GOOD, TRUST ME. Just some of the flavours get lost with the Irish Breakfast and Chestnut.
I’VE NEVER HAD CHAI BUT OHHHHH I WANTED MORE.
I’m scared of buying blends from Adagio because I feel like I haven’t drank enough tea to know what I want, but luckily my friend had some of this and it’s sooooo good. JUST DRINK IT.
And it’s like.. Moriarty. That’s how he would definitely taste like if he was liquified in tea form.
Decided to prepare tea for me to relax from midterm stress.
It was around 9:30pm when I made it and I was on the phone with my parents and stress + caffeine (even though this tea has fairly low caffeine) = your parents thinking that you’re high ;)
But this tea is really good okay. THE AROMA. And it steeps really well. I’m on my 5th mug but I think it’s because I like my Jasmine tea a bit weak.
