drank Winter Frost by Adagio Teas
4219 tasting notes

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this sample to try.

Unfortunately, this one isn’t going to receive high praises from me like the last Adagio blend I tasted. First of all, I’m apprehensive when it comes to decaffeinated teas. And Adagio’s decaffeinated black tea is just… icky. The peppermint would be nice if it could cover up that Adagio tea taste. But it can’t. I can taste the peppermint and the vanilla, and those two ingredients are quite nice, but the decaffeinated tea base is not, and it ruins the whole cup, I’m afraid.

On the bright side, I’m glad I got to try it.

I think I sent you my Winter Frost blend too and wonder if you would try that and do a comparison. I know this blend is Woodie Barnes. Just thought it would be fun to see a side by side.

Sure… I’m infusing yours now…

Oh no the pressure is on. I am so nervous. If you don’t like it then it was my hubby that made the blend. LOL :-)

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

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.
