I’ve just realize that I don’t really care for the smell of this tea – it’s almost too sickly sweet. Luckily the tea itself is toned down, otherwise I’d probably be gagging on it!

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 3 min, 30 sec

How much of a deal breaker is the “smell” of your teas? I had a huge issue with the Honeybush Vanilla from Teavana that made me gag, however the tea itself wasn’t to strong.

For me it isn’t a huge deal as my nose tends to adapt to scents quickly so I no longer smell them. Still, I suppose it does take away from the whole ‘experience of tea’ if you’re into that.

Eric, you mean like Adagio’s white cucumber? lol;)

Eric Walter

haha I hope I’m not the only one that’s “into that”. Maybe I need to keep trying? Did you get your “Zodiac Series” as a complimentary purchase?

Jillian

Yes, it’s matched with your birthday. Since my birthday is in July and I fall under the Cancer Zodiac sign, that was the tea I got. It’s only a sample-sized container so if it turns out you don’t care for the one you get then it’s really not much waste.

Cofftea

I don’t like that Adagio won’t let you write reviews on the free samples they give you.

smell is HUGE for me. I go on and try the tea, but I smell everything first.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
