drank Pu Erh Chorange by Adagio Teas
1144 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! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

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.
