I’ve been pondering this one for a while but haven’t pulled the trigger. How does it taste? Is it medicine-E tasting!?

Eh, I’m not terribly thrilled with it. It doesn’t taste bad but it’s kind herby and vaguely sweet and not much else. As for the health benefits, well I haven’t noticed much difference. shrug

That tartness disguises most of the green tea flavour unfortunatly. And I supect the company is cheating and using hibiscus instead of the actual fruit flavours for all their pomegranate/cranberry/raspberry teas because they all taste remarkably similar, I find.

Thumbs down for you Stash!

I accidently added too much milk and that kinda drowned the flavour. Oops. :(

I was wrong, I did have another bag. I stuck this cup in the fridge and it made an interesting and refreshing iced tea, though the chamomile taste is quite strong when it’s cold for some reason.

Preparation
Iced

drank Yunnan Jig by Adagio Teas
1684 tasting notes

My first taste of Yunnan! The leaves were longer than I’m used to seeing but it was neat watching them expand and unfurl while they steeped (5 minutes).

I’m not entirely sure what they meant by ‘peppery’ in the description, to me it tastes more smokey but with a cleaner, vegetale undertone almost like what you’d get in a green tea maybe.

This is one I’ll have to experiment with the steeping time more, but I think it’s quite enjoyable thus far. It’s robust enough that it’d probably be a good wake-me-up tea to have in the morning.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

drank Thai Chai by Adagio Teas

Hmm, I can really taste the lemon grass today for some reason, maybe because I added less milk than usual.

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!)
