drank Cocomint Green by Adagio Teas

Thank you Kallieboo! for sending me this sample. Almost everyone seems to love this tea, I am the anomaly…

The dry leaves smell AMAZING!

The color of the tea is a light amberish green.

The tea smells very fishy. Did I oversteep? It is past Vegetal and into the salty – brothy – and into fishy territory.

When I dumped the cup down the drain there was so much minty potential. Yet – it just did not work for me.

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA

Sipdown!

I am trying to curb the amount of sweets I eat. I will likely get more of this next time I am in Davids as it is a great way to tame the sweet tooth.

IT tastes like warm liquid cakebatter. I got some apple notes and some creamy notes along with the maple.

Yum!

I just finished a cup of this too! Cheers!

mix some of this with some oh Canada! and a teensy bit of a blueberry tea (I use blueberry jam by davids), and steep it for like seven mins or so.. I find all three teas are strong enough to not overpower one another … you get the exact taste of sunday blueberry pancakes :) its delightful!

drank Irish Breakfast by ESP Emporium
230 tasting notes

I used the directions on the package to brew this one. It ended up being a VERY dark brown color, almost like I was drinking black coffee. The flavors were VERY STRONG IN YOUR FACE and lacked any nuances. I will try with less time if I make this again. I do enjoy a hearty English Breakfast but this is not for me.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

drank Cucumber Mint by Tea Forte
230 tasting notes

I drank this last night to relax. This is the second teabag I have had of this. I LOVE IT. I LOVE all cucumber teas I have tried For some reason – even though I drank it hot – this tea is very soothing. I liked it so much I went to order it online at the tea forte website. However, shipping is only free at $50.00 and I only wanted this one item. ALAS, I had a brainstorm! I looked on Amazon and they also had the loose leaf. With Amazon Prime I got it shipped to my house for free! YAY!

Has anyone else ordered tea from Amazon? I have purchased other tea forte items (kati cup) from amazon in order to utilize the prime shipping. Looking quickly I noticed some Art of Tea items as well as Teavana and Adagio on Amazon.

Back to this tea – To me this is calm in a cup.

I have ordered tea from Amazon, and I have not had any problems with freshness or quality.

This sample came from my liberteas tasting box. It tastes good slightly vanilla and sweet but nothing super memorable.

drank Marco Polo by Mariage Frères
230 tasting notes

This is my tea of the afternoon. My tea travel cup is so wonderous at holding a temperature that I made this tea at 6:00 Am this morning and it is still warm, even after sitting in my COLD car for hours and hours.

This tea really is fantastic. The flavors are so light, fruity and comforting. This really is a quality tea and I am thrilled it is in my collection.

Marco!

POLO!

SIPDOWN!

I had a small amount of this that has been in the cupboard for some time. This tea is a drinkable, jasmine pearl tea. Nothing remarkable.

Profile

Bio

I like all kinds of tea and am open to new things. I am learning about all kinds of new tea and am working on pushing my palate with new tastes.

Looking for new tea shops/houses/cafes and finding new teas to sample is often part of the adventure!

Bringing varied teas to work makes the day interesting

I live in Framingham, MA with my husband, a cranky orange cat and an oversized chihuahua.

I am open to tea swaps from around the world and tea meetups if anyone is in the Greater Boston/ New England area.

As of 7/6/14 I am working to make every tea I own appear in my cupboard…including things I only have a small amount. Look around! Want to swap?
