Meghann sent me the best box of tea ever today!! I can’t believe how much was tucked into it, and I could barely decide what to try first (and, yes, I did the happy, new tea dance whilst I was opening and going through the box). Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Finally decided on this one to have first. It’s my first Adagio (that I can remember having, at least), and it’s decaf. I’ve never had a blend with chamomile and rooibos before, either, so this is an extra-special treat.

Normally I brew chamomiles for 5 minutes, and rooibos blends for 10. So we’re going to go with 5 to start, and take it from there. I also completely ignored the “2 tsps to 8 oz water” instructions on the pack and went with just 1 heaping tsp.

Love the smell…all chamomile and mint. I don’t taste much of the rooibos, but there’s this hint of it at the very beginning and very end of the sip, and I think it gives this tea a robustness that it would lack otherwise. Taste is very similar to Celestial Seasoning’s Vanilla Sleepytime tea, though this one is much stronger on the mint. I think that this could become really overpoweringly minty if steeped for much longer than 5 minutes. As it is, my tongue is tingling rather nicely, and I can feel it warming me up from the inside out. This one will be great for those icky winter nights when you want something warm and soothing. Love it!!

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
