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, and I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is my happy place – it picks me up, it calms me down, it helps me focus, it helps me loosen my grip, it’s a little bit of positivity in each day. I do not drink alcohol, so tea is my recreational beverage. I love learning everything there is to know about it and sharing my experiences.

When I’m not drinking or writing about tea, I’m working at a music store and pursuing a Master’s degree in professional writing. You may also find me reading, writing, trying to learn French, cycling on the weekends, being a klutz, or making horrible puns and Star Trek references. Likely all at the same time.
