From Adagio Teas

Our Blackberry Sage Oolong is an enchanting blend inspired by the flavors of the forest. With its bold, earthy flavors of berries and herbs, it is a grounding tea with a complex character.

Blended With Oolong Tea, Sage, Raspberry Leaves, Natural Blackberry Flavor & Raspberries

‘Tis a wise tea maven who understands how to blend, like mixing plump, juicy blackberries with raspberries and sage. Why sage? It’s not just for adding to a turkey’s stuffing, but a culinary herb that offers a boost to the sweetness in the berries while it brings out the fruitiness of oolong tea. Salia officinallis, from the Latin salvere or to be saved, has roots in the Vulgar Latin word, sapius, derived from sap(ere) or to taste, have taste, smell, discerned to be wise. Now you know why drinking blackberry sage oolong is the wise thing to do!

Tried this one cold-brewed finally and it was good. Might try cold-brewing Adagio’s grapefruit oolong next.

The sage gives it a strange, almost savory taste, and the blackberry flavor isn’t as strong as I’d like it to be.

Adagio Advent Calendar – Day 10

Ooh, well this sounds fun and interesting. I’m honestly not even a sage fan, but I’m still excited to try it. There’s a lot of sage in my pouch, hah.

I will say, it’s not bad at all. The sage is present but not overbearing, which is a relief. The blackberry flavoring does have a bit of chalkiness to it (an issue I often have with berry flavoring), but it does also taste like blackberry to me. A tad artificial though, perhaps. I also taste a bit of tart raspberry. I don’t really get much from the oolong base, which has also been true in similar Adagio oolong blends.

Mellow and pleasant. Not something I would order, but I can certainly see the appeal. If the blackberry flavor were just a touch more authentic, I think this would be really good.

Cold Brew!

Nice and syrupy thick blackberry notes, but still more medium bodied and not cloying. Like a blackberry jam or compote but with the rich mineral heavy and roasty oolong base and that hint of sage in the undertones. Made for a good, smooth and dark cold brew.
