Golden Spring (Adagio)

Friday is Black Tea, Floral Tea, Fruit Tea, Chai and Pu'erh Review Day!

Adagio is good at a lot of things. They engage well with their online consumers. They use the internet to their advantage as no other tea brand does. They also find good tea to market! Golden Spring is one of my favorites from them, and I think you'll agree, it's very tasty!

This black tea blend is very appealing visually. Consisting of golden, black and brown tippy, soft-looking leaves and brewing to a beautiful deep orange liquor (color), it's hard to resist!

For a black tea, its fragrance is very light and sweet. Soft on the nostrils unlike an Assam... it's scents remind of honey and nectar.

This tea is vagualy reminiscent of an Assam black tea, but is softer on the palate and sweeter on the tongue. There's no need for sugar in this lightly bold tea.

I would recommend this tea to fans of Darjeelings, Sri Lankan (Ceylon) black teas and anything with peach or honey.

    I've not tried Golden Spring by Adagio. While typically not a black tea drinker, I do love Adagio Teas. However with a flavor profile that contains honey and nectar, I might give it a try.

    It reminds me of some Nilgir as well. Though I didn't note it in the review.

    Thanks for the nice writeup and kind words. Glad to hear you liked the tea.

    P.S. I hear this tea makes people into good dancers. Any truth to that?
