drank Tangerine by Adagio Teas
4322 tasting notes

I decided to give this tea another go, since last night my cup was a little too bitter for me. This time, I brewed it just 3 minutes, and this seems to be about right for this tea.

I don’t know what it is about Adagio’s black tea base – but, it certainly is unlike most Ceylon teas that I’ve encountered. It has a very dry astringency to it, and I can even detect a malty note and even the slightest smoky characteristic to it. It’s much more robust than a typical Ceylon.

I think that this tea would be much better if the black base wasn’t so strong – because it would allow for some of the more delicate tangerine notes to be tasted. As it is, I can taste the tangerine, but, only mere hints of it.

I like it ok, but it is not my favorite. I am currently working on my review of this tea for the Tea Review Blog.

I am obsessed with tea!

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
