drank Irish cream by Adore Tea
109 tasting notes

Ah, my crush on Adore Tea has ended ):
Ordered a whole bunch of samples from their online store and sad to say that almost all of the blacks taste exactly the same, save for a sprinkling of artificial flavour in order to distinguish them from one another. Some were frankly kind of bland enough that I don’t have a single thing to say about them.
It’s also $1 for a two-cup sampler, and I have been sent expired ones, or ones close to the expiry date, with some packets not even sufficient in amount to make a single cup.
I will still make tea out of the 40+ samples I have left, just to try them all, but most likely I will be pouring them down the drain after a few sips.
However, Adore Tea has free domestic shipping for the rest of the month and I will be stocking up on my tried and true favourites (Soursop Sencha and Cherry Ripe) and a few that were decent (Decaf Ceylon). The good ones are usually because of natural flavouring such as vanilla beans and essential oil.
Disappointed in this Irish Cream though. The flavour is there, but meh. Weak.
Still on the hunt for a tea that tastes like Baileys.

Australian tea drinker from Sydney.

I enjoy all kinds of tea except rooibos. Black and roasted oolongs are my true lovers while green tea makes me a little dizzy. Pu-erh I have yet to explore, despite being gifted several cakes. On the look-out for a great herbal tea and also getting the matcha madness.

Have yet to add everything to my Steepster cupboard, but would be interested in an Australian tea swap in the future!

The variety here is not as extensive as other places due to import regulations and the cost of shipping but I own and like stuff from Harney & Sons, Lupicia, T2, Teavivre, Butiki, Mariage Freres, Verdant, Yunnan Sourcing and Whispering Pines Tea Company.
