I’ve had this forever and I haven’t even tried it yet. It seemed like a good tea to both wake up and relax with, which is definitely what I need! I got a new car, that just happens to be a stick shift. I’ve learned how to drive it, and have everything down except hills. In a few days, I go back to my university and it’s located in “hill country” AND everyone gets as close behind you as they possibly can! I had to stop and take a sip there, just thinking about it makes me anxious. I was planning on practicing today, but a storm looks to be coming up. Maybe I’ll just sit here and drink tea all day instead.
I’m not sure what separates teas into the Masters Collection, but this is definitely good. It smells like some kind of warm, sweet bread baking. I went with three minutes and I feel like you wouldn’t want to go longer than that with this tea, as I think I can taste it just starting to be bitter. It has a kind of sweet and savory flavor. While I like the taste of this tea, I don’t think it is quite worth the price on adagio.
Edit: As this cooled, the flavors, especially the sweet, came out a lot more. I would suggest letting this one cool a good bit before drinking it.
