Backlog & Sipdown
Notes (1/5/22): I didn’t really like the tea base. The vanilla in the tea and creamer added was the only thing keeping me from dumping out the cup.
Ok super interesting because I’ve been eyeing Adagio’s flavored oolongs lately. Can you say what it was about the base that put you off?
I’ll do my best. I was working midnights at the time, so my mind was on autopilot. What I think it was that this is the possibility of oversteeping of the tea OR I didn’t like the base. It was bitter and malty. I like some malty notes, but not in oolongs. I expect to find that is some black teas.
I think they use the same base in their grapefruit oolong, which isn’t my favorite either unless cold brewed. I only had enough of this for one cup, so I can’t say how it’d do cold brewed.
Thanks, that’s helpful! Hope you have a better shift now!
