3 Tasting Notes
When I went to order this tea, it was unavailable as an individual purchase but available as part of the “earth blends” set – because, as any good Cappy knows, you’re an earth sign!
The tea itself seemed a little intimidating at first, because most black teas and I have a contentious relationship. However, the white tea and vanilla buffer/mellow it a bit, and the coconut (more so than the vanilla for me) adds just the right amount of sweetness. I let it cool down a bit before I drank it and it was simply refreshing and slightly energizing – this might be my new morning cup of tea!
Flavors: Coconut, Vanilla
This was a pleasant surprise in the SHERLOCK sampler set I got from Adagio – I was expecting a very fruity blend when I saw the cherry in there, but it was much more of a floral flavor, with slight cherry taste and was my favorite blend to drink before bed (until it ran out).
Flavors: Cherry, Floral
Cream in a tea? Unexpected and delightful, just like how I think of this character. Now, it does have some strong characteristics with the gunpowder and black tea, but the unexpected addition of the cream in the mix was successful and really blended well with the vanilla. I got more of the chocolate BEFORE brewing but that was just fine with me!!
Flavors: Cream, Vanilla
