26 Tasting Notes
Awesome. My girlfriend and I picked it up because it smelled amazing – more like cranberry than a freaking cranberry itself.
The flavor is smooth, mild and slightly sweet even without sugar. A really great tea to have after dinner or something. Just nice going down. Probably a good tea for new tea drinkers or people new to the bitter tastes associated with black tea.
Cranberry+spice? Hmmm… definitely potential. I’m seeing tea sangria potential here specifically. The only thing that concerns me is the hot cranberry flavor burning my throat. That happend to me once w/ a fruit tea. And even worse, it was Adagio’s sour apple so it was supposed to be sour apple and not cranberry.
I dunno what the other guys are on about. This tea is freaking delicious with a little sugar. The honey / vanilla flavors do blend together, but the blend that they make is really unique, really calming and totally full-bodied. I probably won’t buy it again (I gotta stop!), but for the time being, I’m really going to enjoy it!
Absolutely one of my favorite teas EVER! It’s so simple: green tea, lemon grass, ‘natural flavors’ (okay, maybe not so simple). But the blend is a wonderful, citrusy flavorful adventure.
This tea started my love affair with lemongrass herbal teas. I did run out, however, so I went so far as to swipe a leaf of lemongrass bush from our local conservatory. Sssh! Don’t tell them. It was delicious though, so I have to compliment their craftsmanship.
“natural flavors” ick. Give me green tea and lemongrass separately any day. That way I can pick the green tea I want and the ratio of green tea to lemongrass I want. Hmmm… that gives me an idea… blending Adagio’s artichoke green w/ their lemongrass and sesame black, steep it and use that to make rice for stirfry… YUMMY! If only the sesame was a green tea base.
I was having some breathing problems, so I thought that I would pick up a tea that would help with my breathing. I wasn’t sure what to get, but luckily, I ran into this stuff at my grocery store. It was cheap and tasty, but I can’t gage whether or not it actually works.
Either way, the blend of ingredients is great as its own tea, as the licorice and other ingredients make a tasty, fruity and generally powerful tea. It’s very present and very powerful in flavor.
Nothing too complicated. The mint / spearmint blend is a great taste, but for me, it’s a moody thing. I only like it when I feel sick. The minty rush is great for calmin’ the old belly after a particularly awful meal (a 1 pound burrito composed mostly of hot chili, for example).
