This is growing on me.
It just tastes so GOOD. The cups of green tea that I made prior to discovering Adagio’s Gunpowder always required a tiny amount of sugar to be bearable. This one does not.
There’s something about that smokey quality, plus a decent amount of caffeine (which then lends itself to productivity) and a cool winter day that’s just so right.
I’m starting to notice more of a somewhat fruity aftertaste that mixes with the astringency. That’s probably a contradiction, but merh.
