I think I might just not be as fond of 52teas as everyone else is. I am getting strawberries, but it’s not the best or most pleasant strawberry flavor I have gotten. And I’m not tasting a ton of butteriness for some reason. I like buttery green teas but I’m not getting pancake flavor. It’s not bad but it’s not exciting either.

I tend to like his flavouring but dislike his base teas, which kinda ruins it a bit for me…although I really like his new black base. (I hated the last one!)

Bonnie

Daniel me too, I don’t like the base and maybe it’s me but it carries over so much that I can’t do it. Too bad really.

Sil

I think that’s an accurate statement for me as well. I’ve found ways to enjoy a number of his blends though, but they’re not my favourite by any means. I do enjoy the Cinnabon one though heh other than that, they’ve been hit and miss but not nearly as bad as adagio for me shudder

@sil – misery loves company (or at least verification!) – I’m glad to hear I’m not the only person disappointed (usually, not always) by Adagio.

Bio

I’m a writer and as such, am obviously an emotional rollercoaster. I used to drink tea a lot more, but kind of stopped and switched to coffee. Now, after too much stress, I’m completely unable to drink coffee anymore, so I figured tea would fulfill some of my “awake” needs as well as calm my emotions. I’m working my way through a huge selection of samples of pretty much everything, leaving notes so I remember what I like.
I love being adventurous and trying new things, even (especially?) things that sound strange or off-putting. Aside from tea I also enjoy tasting wines. The last really interesting one I tried was a dandelion wine! (And yes, it actually was delicious. Extremely bizarre and herby, but delicious).

I don’t have a set of numerical ratings set down yet, mainly because I’m very intuitive (read: disorganized and opinionated) about how I rate things. Basically, If something is in the 70-85 range, it’s pretty good, totally drinkable. Below that, in the 50-69 range, it was probably incredibly boring. I really hate boring tea. Below 50, I wouldn’t drink it again and might not have finished it (I actually really hate leaving ratings below 50, it makes me feel bad. I’m probably too nice). If it’s above 85 then I really liked it. Super high ratings are reserved for teas that totally blew me away.
