OK. What is it? The weather? Stress? Why the heck am I so tired tonight? Seriously, I could probably go to bed NOW. Except I’m not gonna.

I don’t know what it is with me and this latest batch of Adagio teas; I’ve been trying to be generous with the leaves, but they’ve all been really mild. I can detect a creamy mouthfeel with this one, and a bit of buttery sweetness, but I really don’t get a whole lot of flavor…

Yeah. I just tasted cup #2, which I’ve left brewing for about forty five minutes. A bit of bitterness, a bit of mushroominess, and a bit of the flavor from the first cup, but it’s all so subtle. Dammit Adagio! What, do you give us these big honkin samples because we have to use three teaspoons per cup in order to taste anything?

No numbers for now. Hey, at least this stuff is waking me up a bit.

Bio

The name’s Holly. 27. Work for a small IT company. About to finish a Master’s degree this winter. ISFJ for what it’s worth. I play various instruments (mostly bass guitar right now), attempt to write songs that I’m too scared to play for anyone, and I’m currently taking voice lessons. I also enjoy starting various hobbies, wearing monochromes, writing, cooking, taking walks, and various and sundry other things…

I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is a source of happiness, positivity, curiosity, and relaxation (…and caffeine) for me.

I’ve been on and off this site over the years, and I even had a separate tea blog at one point. For now, I’m just working on getting back in the habit of enjoying tea regularly and to its fullest.

Love: Malty Chinese black teas, shu/ripe pu erhs, soft flowery teas (esp. jasmine teas)

Like: Japanese green teas, sheng/ripe pu erhs, white teas

Still trying to get into: Most oolongs, chai teas

Not crazy about: Roasty teas, fruity teas, rooibos, many (not all) herbal teas
