I was waiting to try this one from the Christmas sampler pack. Sounded good, but no. It smells and tastes like I mixed my black tea with flat Sprite. The aroma is nice, reminds me of pie :-), but the taste is almost non-existent.
This makes me sad- Key lime makes me think of my grandma so I was hoping this’d be good. But then again if it’s too strong it’d be like hot lime juice and that’d burn my throat.
Your poor throat! I was disappointed by this too, I love lime. If it helps any, now I have this limey aftertaste in my throat, not as fun as it sounds.
I just wonder if I’m missing something with this tea…. Well, I still have a few bags left, so we’ll see how it goes.
Maybe it needs a time or temp adjustement?
Maybe. I will experiment and report back, Captain! :-)
Also, weigh your bag. It may be insanely light. I’ve had bags ~1.4g when I like my cuppa 2.25g/6oz water. I never thought about that til someone actually did it and stated the weight in their tasting note.
I will keep that in mind and experiment with that as well, thanks for the tip!
No problem:) Bagged teas are convenient, but even if the tea is very good quality (some aren’t), I still prefer to steep loose or at least fill my own bags because then leaf amount is another parameter I can control.
I’ve been wanting to fill my own bags, and finally there was someone at the coffee shop that told me where they get their bags from so I can order, but then she sold me a tea ball! So I’m going to try that out and see how the mess is. But that tea sampler I got for Christmas was too good a deal to pass up, 12 different flavors, 8 bags each, all for $10. I figure there are some I won’t like and it’s not a complete waste.
Ok where was that sampler from? lol. Adagio sells their’s 100/$3.75.
What? No way! I’ve never seen big sampler packs at Adagio for that price? No wait, the tea sampler pack was $10, American. :-) I thought it was a decent price since I went to the website and they were selling it for $15 there.
Oops, my mistake $3 even not $3.75. Although I wouldn’t suggest making that your entire order- paying more for shipping than your order wouldn’t make sense lol.:)
Again oops, I meant they sell fillable bags for 100/$3, not sampler packs. Although a lot of their individual sample tins are $2.
I did see that, my birthday is coming up and I think I am going to make it a tea birthday! Gifts from Adagio, Lupicia, Teavana (because it’s local) and Zen Tara!
We got the same Christmas present!
