Sipdown! Raspberry Cream Pie was probably the one tea I have been most excited about trying from the new spring collection. It definitely smells and tastes like a raspberry cream pie! There is an oily film on top after brewing but this does contain white chocolate chips. The tea alone is pretty sweet thanks to the addition of sugar. I bet this would be lovely with a splash of almond milk.
Flavors: Raspberry, White Chocolate
I’m finally getting around to trying this, I’ve had it for maybe about a month now. The dry tisane itself smells delicious – very nutty and chocolately. I ended up steeping mine for about 3 min at 160 F. The resulting liquor is a light golden brown. You can definitely smell and taste the nuttiness but I feel like the chocolate flavor is lacking. Perhaps I need to steep it a little longer since Adagio suggests 3-5 min. Regardless, this tea is pretty yummy and smooth. Not bitter at all. This is the first mate I’ve ever tried. I also like how there is no oily film in this tisane as there are with some others that include chocolate pieces.
I only have this as a sample so I’m already out and I’m really sad :( This tisane is sooooo good! It’s like drinking an apple pie/apple crumble! It brews a bright pink color due to the beet root which I think is neat. There is also a slight tang that I get from this tea – not sure if it’s from the apple or the beetroot, but it’s nice. I need to go buy myself some more of this asap.
Flavors: Almond, Apple, Cinnamon, Nuts, Nutty
Dry: This smells intensely of marzipan, which I love. Of all of the Winter Collection teas, this one is my favorite scent-wise. You can see the green tea with marigolds and cornflowers. It’s pretty.
Wet: The marigolds and cornflowers disappear and you’re left with a green tea with leaves that have opened up nicely. I recommend using an infuser with plenty of room.
The liquor is a golden green color. I can definitely taste the almond flavor and there is also some grassiness from the green tea. I also detect a very slight cherry flavor. This sort of reminds me of Zhi Tea’s Cherry Sencha which I am a huge fan of.
Overall, I love this tea and it’s my favorite from the Winter Collection so far, with 2nd place going to their Hot Chocolate pu’erh/black tea blend. Green tea and marizpan? HECK YES. I need to quickly buy a full-sized tin of this.
Flavors: Almond, Cherry, Grass
Drinking this is like being refreshed by The Great Fairy…
…or having your heart and magic meter completely filled from drinking a Blue Potion…
…or feeling the joy of the rain after playing Song Of Storms on your ocarina.
This tea gives you the Wisdom, Power and Courage to take on that damn Water Temple.
