drank Gunpowder by Adagio Teas
10 tasting notes

Backlogging from last night.

I received two bags of this and upon cracking this baby open I initially thought that I didn’t like it, so I decided to take the unopened bag and give it as a housewarming present to my friend’s new apartment.

She didn’t have any pots or kettles unpacked, so I haphazardly microwaved a glass of water and plopped in a handful of leaves, waiting a few minutes and drank it straight-up, leaves and everything. I don’t know what I did wrong before this, but this was just delicious, even when it’s been steeping for several minutes.

Sweet, refreshing, and a tad buttery. One of the best Adagio greens I’ve tried in my limited experience with them, much better than the awful, spinachy taste I got beforehand.

Bio

I’m a baker and an accordionist who just likes a nice cup of tea.

My tea choices aren’t very exotic so to say, usually my tea of choice is straight up green, but I’m looking to broaden my horizons. Currently, my favorite teas are Chunmee, Sencha, Assam, Gunpowder, and Dian Hong.

I’m always willing to trade, my cupboard probably won’t be very interesting but let me know if something tickles your fancy!
