drank Pu Erh Chorange by Adagio Teas
937 tasting notes

Hm. Wanted to love this, even though I’ve had mediocre luck with everything Adagio except the fan blends, which are usually a mixture of several different teas like this one.

Dry and steeped this smells very, very earthy. Earth takes over my sip completely except for a hint of orange at the end, unless I add some Truvia which brings out the orange a bit more. It’s unfair to compare this to the Fauchon L’Automme from earlier, and yet… L’Automme is so much better! Yes, it’s a rooibos and this is a pu-erh but still. I want that flavor in this cup!

Teaholic, with a leaning toward rooibos, green, puerh and white teas, although I’m trying some black tea again. Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; my only (within walking distance) choices are currently mall-bound. Still, I have a whole cupboard dedicated to tea.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
