This was the first tea that I tried out of the Adagio White Orchard Sampler Pack I bought when I placed my first order with Adagio. I love white tea, but I wouldn't really consider myself a fan of tropical blends, although from the ingredients I did hope this would be different because it didn't contain most of the ingredients that turn me off of them in the first place ::cough cough hibiscus cough cough::
I didn’t dislike this as much as I thought I would, but that isn’t really saying much. This is a really delicate blend and not at all what I was expecting. When I think tropical blends I think about sweet juicy fruit flavors. The only thing I taste is the sweetness from the coconut flavoring which masks the white tea in the blend. I’m not getting the rose petals or pineapple at all and as it cools I’m getting less and less of the coconut. On one hand I’m happy to see a tropical blend without the hibiscus, I just wish I liked it more, it really let me down by not having more of a fruit flavor present.
Would I order this again? Absolutely not. While this wasn't terrible, it really lacks the fruit flavor I was looking for.
