drank Valentines by Adagio Teas
44 tasting notes

I had originally wanted to get a sample of this tea, but Adagio was all out, so I had to get 3 oz. (you think it would be the other way around!). Oh, well part of me is glad I have a lot extra!

This makes the perfect dessert tea. I usually add a splash of almond or soy milk to bring out the flavors even more. I oftentimes find myself with my head in the bag simply enjoying the sweet aroma – it’s just that good. I’ve always been a fan of chocolate covered strawberries and that’s exactly what this is, but in tea form. The rose petals aren’t noticeable in the flavor, so I’m thinking they’re just there for decoration and it to make it seem more romantic. The balance between the strawberry and the chocolate flavor is just right – neither overpower each other. The subtle bitterness and tannins of the ceylon base definitely give it a dark chocolate feel, with a full bodied taste.

Bio

I’m currently attending college. I’m just about done with my undergraduate study in art history. In my free time I love playing piano (Chopin!) and composing music. I also enjoy writing poetry. Really, I just love the Romantic period in art (with the exception of the visual arts- go figure) and continually draw my inspiration from that era.

I’m very interested in nutrition and using herbs to heal. Herbs also taste great, so that’s just another bonus! Before I got into tea, I got into herbs first. I think I’m pretty weird in this regard. I can’t imagine many people would find drinking a decoction made from tree bark to be very tasty… and yet I do. Purely for taste, I love peppermint and ginger more than any other herb. I could, and do, drink those almost daily. I also love rooibos and honeybush.

I have a penchant for Indian & Chinese black teas and Japanese greens, but I’ll try anything once. I’m trying to get into other types of tea as well. I prefer to drink my teas plain, but I’ll very seldom add honey to some herbs (ginger).
