Adagio Teas Apricot Green Tea Review
A Delicious Apricot Flavored Tea
Summary : This tea from Adagio Teas is the perfect blend of green tea and apricots, producing a nice, but not overpowering fruity flavor, of apricots. In short...if you like the fruit, you'll like the tea!
Review : I like apricots. Admittedly, I rarely buy them since I'll simply forget about them down in the bottom of the refrigerator...only to remember when the mold begins to grow out of the crisper compartment.
Since I do like apricots, I was quite intrigued by Adagio Teasapricot green tea. As a general rule, I love experimenting with flavored green teas of various kinds. The reason for this is because at times the "grassy" flavor of many green teas gets a bit boring...so it's nice to change things around with other flavors.
Here is how Adagio Teas explains this tea on their website : "Green tea from China with the delicate flavors of apricots. Makes a light and refreshing drink that's popular both hot and iced. If you are new to green tea, this lightly flavored tea may be a good place to start."
Well...happily, Adagio describes this tea perfectly.
Straight out of the tin, this tea has a aroma that says apricot all over it. So any doubts you might have had about this NOT being a apricot flavored tea will evaporate when you take in the aroma of this tea.
The tea, once brewed, has a flavor to match too. Indeed, I was very, very surprised by how close this tea, and a green tea at that, tasted to a real apricot fruit right off the tree.
Admittedly, this tea is not for green tea purists, for the simple reason that the flavor of green tea is basically nowhere to be found. The strong and slightly sweet flavor of apricots in this tea essentially banish the normal green tea flavor. But of course...the apricot flavor is wonderful...so who cares!
I'll also agree with Adagio Teas that this tea is an ideal first green tea for people. No worries about a "grassy taste." Instead, you'll just get a nice, slightly sweet, moderately fruity flavor. The tea is also very light, with no hint of bitterness at all.
Overall, if you love apricots, go over to Adagio Teas and get this tea. You won't be disappointed. And if you need a break from traditional green teas, this tea is sure to fit that need too.
Recommendation : Absolutely. This tea from Adagio Teas is a superb tea for anyone who loves apricots. Also makes for a great "first green tea" for people who have never had it before...or who have never tried a good green tea before.
