so i had to try decaf and i wanted one that i had the normal version for and my sister got me this for Christmas :)

the color brewed up a bit different but not too much. its very good i can almost not tell the difference :) it isnt as sweet as the normal strawberry black i would consider buying this in a larger container!

drank Blueberry by Adagio Teas

:D another cup today! it is very late but luckly for me i have a very high tolerance for caffeine and will more than likely doze off to sleep without a problem. oddly enough my consumption of tea has increased and i seem to be sleeping more soundly at night (im weird lol) i really like how much the blueberry flavor comes through with this tea and the fact that i LOVE blueberries helps too :D

i was being lazy and opted for one of my favorite bagged teas :) i like to steep this for a long time i kinda like leaving the bag in :) it never gets bitter on me! it was like seeing an old friend :D it was good but we will be parting our ways again for me to hang out with my loose leaf friends. this did a much better job at soothing my sore throat than the twinnings did. but i feel like im getting cheated when i drink bagged teas lol

wll i have a sore throat so i wanted something quick so brewed this up nothing special but i wanted lemon in it…no lemons. so i dropped a bag of lemon zinger in for a 1 minute to get a lemony flavor to the generic tea taste. it is soothing my sore throat so its doing the job. the color is so murky its kinda gross looking! lol tastes fine tho.

drank Masala Chai by Adagio Teas
84 tasting notes

im having this i guess the real way chai is made and i gotta say…..i dont wana try it any other way lol
i stole this from teaplz
1 cup of water, 1 cup of milk/milk equivalent 1 tbsp of sugar, 1 tbsp of chai

Boil water and sugar together in a saucepan until sugar dissolves into water. Into a syrup.
Add the chai, then simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the milk, simmering and stirring.
When it comes to a boil (be careful that it doesn’t boil over!), turn the heat off and let it sit for a long time. Like 7-10 minutes long. I let it sit for around 8-9 or so.
Strain and serve.

it gos perfectly with my turkey dinner i just made :D its amazing!
bumping up my rating!!!

teaplz

OMG YAY! I’m SO happy it worked for you! What was your rating before? I stole this from takgoti, so… yay! Awesomeness. Does it taste very different from the really quick way of making it?

teaplz

And there are SO many ways to make chai, you can’t really make it “wrong,” but this is definitely more authentic and much more flavorful. I’m pretty sure this is something close to what Samovar does, knowing takgoti!

i think it was a 70ish :) it had more complexity to the flavor that i didnt get with the fast and dirty way lol its so much more amazing and comforting and it feels like its inviting me in rather than being overbearing like it was b4. i have the chocolate chai i wanna try that way now. but no moo juice :( used the last of it to make the masala :D

teaplz

Awwww yay! Seriously SO happy for you! I feel like it actually tastes like its own beverage instead of tea-with-milk-in-it. I’m not a fan of putting milk in tea, but this just tastes like its own thing!

Kitch3ntools

now that i look at my b4 post about this tea i said i wish it were stronger. but i remember the clove scent attacking me as a drank this (not always a bad thing lol) but making it this new cool way it reminds me of christmas in a mug(my fav holiday lol)

Kitch3ntools

i agree, i usually really dont like milk in my tea (unless its my cinnamon) but this is something all on its own. it tastes like it is suppose to taste like that. :D

amandajo

mmm…that recipe is delicious! vowing never to go back to starbucks ever again!

first i have to say the sample tin is so cute i couldnt contain myself! i had to show everyone :) this is my birthday week sample and it came in ON my birthday :D

the leaves are so pretty! they have these tiny redish orange flower in it that makes it unique.
the smell of the leaves i couldnt figure it out it was creamy and fruity at the same time. the wet leaves have the same aroma but the creamy scent comes out more.
the tea is a really pretty sunshine yellow it tastes exactly lik it smells :) its very good and its a really clean taste
this it defiantly one of the better white teas ive had
