Adagio Teas - Apricot (Black Tea)

Characteristics

  • Nose: A perfect balance of light fruit and soft tea (9/10)
  • Brew: Medium Brown
  • First Note: Light but full, fresh and very moist compliments of a well balanced tea delight the senses (9/10)
  • Body: Smooth black tea fills the mouth while hints of fruit sweetness touches the tongue deep (8/10)
  • Finish: After the swallow just a light dry touch from the usual black tea lingers, the aromas of the apricot are mild and do not over power on the swallow (8/10)

Brew

Volume tea: 5 teaspoons
Water: 1200ml
Temp: 212*
Time: 3 Minutes



Verdict

I purchased this tea because it was part of the black and fruit mixtures sold from Adagio, as such I expected this to just be another data point for fruited teas. This tea exceeded expectations, it is everything I wish their blueberry tea was. So much that this finds it's way onto the permanent re-order list as a nice morning or afternoon cup.

Update: Just purchased a pound of this tea since I like it so much.
