drank Berry Blues by Adagio Teas
44 tasting notes

I was quite afraid to brew this tea based on how it smelled from the bag. The scent was super potent and it reminded me of cough medicine. My boyfriend thought it smelled like weird soda. I erred on the side of caution (strange smell and hibiscus) and brewed it just for five minutes. Thankfully, it’s not at all scary and actually quite pleasant. This would make a great iced tea, so that’s how I’ll finish up my sample I’m thinking. The berry flavors are definitely present, but the hibiscus is at the forefront (though, not too hibiscus-y or I wouldn’t drink it).

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).
