Adagio Teas included this as a free sample and I’ve tried hard to like it. It seems almost disloyal to Libras everywhere to dislike it this much. But it is truly not for me. It tastes artificial and cloying to me. It reminds me of when I was 13 and ate my lip gloss because it smelled like strawberries. The lip gloss also had this strange, artificial, somewhat bitter taste.

I had a friend who used to like to chew on Lip Smackers. Never understood that.

Eating my lip gloss was not top of the chart of Carolyn’s Most Intelligent Moments.

I’d say ‘eww’ but I think I might have tried to do the same once when I was much younger. Stones and glass houses and all that. ;)

I am a big fan of chocolate; does that come through at all in the tea?

Carolyn

Not to me, but my preferred chocolate is dark chocolate. I think this may have a note of that artificial-tasting waxy milk chocolate.

Bio

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
