Birthday Tea from Adagio Teas. . . .

Just looking at this tea makes me happy. The sprinkles bring in a touch of festive fun that drew me to this blend. Cream, caramel, and vanilla flavored black teas accompany the sprinkles to create a tooth-ache worthy blend. Yum!

Both dry and steeped, this tea smells sweet! Just as if you had added some sugar to your cup. Upon taking a sip I was greeted with a taste that made me feel nostalgic. It was as if I was eating frosting straight from the spoon. This blend is delightful. I never knew a tea could taste so much like cake.

The one thing that I will say is that I find that this tea’s flavors may not be very well balanced. The black tea comes in as a sharp flavor right behind that sweetness. It quickly cuts through. It’s worth noting that I generally don’t add any cream or sugar to my teas. I think that this blend may benefit from some sugar or honey to help the sweetness last all the way through the sip.

Having said that, I will be happy to finish up the rest of this sweet sample! It’s a perfect treat for your birthday (or any time of year, for that matter)!

Day 9: Caramel Cheesecake Black Tea. . . .The 52Teas Countdown to Christmas!

On the 9th Day of Christmas 52 Teas gave to me… Caramel Cheesecake Black Tea! This lovely black tea blend smells exactly the way it sounds, like creamy cheesecake drizzled in caramel sauce. If I hadn’t read the name before smelling the leaf, I definitely would have been able to pick out the flavors just on smell alone. I love any tea that has cheesecake essence in it, as cheesecake is actually one of my favorite desserts. I used to live right across the street from a Cheesecake Factory restaurant…I’m sure you can imagine, that was pretty dang dangerous!

I may no longer live near a good place to get a slice of cheesecake, but if and when a craving strikes, this tea would surely suffice! It’s creamy and has an almost “fluffy” flavor that’s light and sweet. It also has a slight tang and underlying flavor of cheesecake that definitely comes through on the aftertaste. It’s interesting because when I first saw the name of this tea I kind of wished that there was another component like maybe “caramel apple cheesecake” or something a little more, but after trying this I really believe it is perfect just as it is and I think that something else would definitely have overpowered the awesome flavor combo of caramel and cheesecake. It’s so realistic and yummy, I definitely recommend trying it if you have the chance!
