12 Tasting Notes
A tea for people who love pieces of fruit and a mess of spices. For me, the taste of the white tea was non-existent as the pineapple and other pieces stole the show. For a tea, I place great value on having essentially no or only a single added ingredient as I do enjoy the taste of tea; not the taste of apple, pineapple, or other elements in addition to the tea. There is no way to judge how high grade Starbuck’s white tea is.
This is a great tea for making iced or hot, I’m really glad I picked it up and it’s lasted my ice tea crazed dad a few months which is good. The tea has a nice spice to it, it’s more mild than your typical black tea so it would be ideal for anyone who finds black tea too bitter.
Flavors: Black Currant, Cinnamon, Cloves
Adagio’s Ceylon Sonata has a beautiful rich ruby body, and as it cools down different flavors begin to take over very much in the likeness to Adagio’s English Breakfast. The brilliance of this tea would be its soft taste and gentle honey-feeling in the back of your throat after an nice pot of it. It’s a very pleasant tea, I’d recommend this to anyone who loved their Adagio English Breakfast.
I never knew what black tea truly tasted like until I tried this. I was drawn in by the mystique of a tea from Africa, and having started my journey the price was very agreeable to me. The tea almost knocked me out it was so strong, yet it was sweet, malty, it wasn’t bitter or brash to my tongue. Very strange, very strange indeed. This is a tea I’ve almost never brought myself to drink as if I were saving it, a day would go by and I’d make a pot of it. A week would go by and I’d stock up on fresh teas, it’s been more than a year and a half since I started my journey and I still have some left, just waiting for that last bitter sweet cup.
Flavors: Astringent, Malt, Sweet
A beautiful tea, good hot or cold. The tea has this kind of precious and soft quality to it, the gentleness and sweetness in the pings of cherry swirling amidst the sencha. I’d recommend this tea to anyone who likes sweet things.
Flavors: Cherry, Rose
