This tea is one of Adagio’s seasonal teas, but, it is one that I think I would be happy to enjoy all year round!
I am usually hesitant with Adagio’s black teas, because I often find that the black tea base is too harsh. However, in this particular blend, I am not finding the black tea base to be disagreeable; in fact, it’s really quite pleasant.
The black tea is a strong Ceylon tea with a fair amount of astringency, but it doesn’t taste course or bitter. It’s actually rather smooth, a very pleasant surprise given my experience with Adagio!
The cranberry flavor is more of a subtle hint of flavor – this tea doesn’t scream out “hey! I’m cranberry flavored!” Instead, it is a pleasant black tea with a note of cranberry flavor that is a little sweet and a little tart. I like that the tartness here is not a profound note; just a barely-there hint of tartness that reveals itself in the aftertaste with a tingly tart sensation. Even then, it is not an overtly tart taste; it is quite enjoyable.
While it does have a certain seasonal flair to it, it is one that I would find enjoyable all year round!
