Adagio CommuniTEA – April 1st, 2023
So for some reason I decided to try the Adagio communiTEA box for this month. Don’t ask why, because I don’t have a good answer, considering I don’t generally like Adagio. I guess I thought it was a novel idea and the price of $19 for a month worth of samples is very reasonable.
This first tea is (I assume) meant for April Fool’s Day. It’s a fandom blend that’s essentially all the most divisive tea ingredients, blended into a single tea. So it has puerh, red rooibos, lapsang, bergamot, hibiscus, and rose.
I was fully prepared for it to be terrible, but honestly I don’t taste much of anything other than lapsang. There’s a hint of orange, a hint of bergamot, maybe a tiny bit of puerh earthiness. But mostly it tastes like a generic lapsang souchong.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Earthy, Meat, Mineral, Orange, Savory, Smoked
