drank Birthday Tea by Adagio Teas
158 tasting notes

I love this tea. Every time I have it I have to smile at the tastiness that is held in my tea cup. I only wish Adagio shipped to Ecuador and then I wouldn’t have to worry about running out of it each time I brew it… It is, so far, the best vanilla caramel combo I have found!

On a completely unrelated note, I got home from work today at 10pm (working on the race until late…) and did the unthinkable… I made myself my nightly tea and looked at part one of my tea tea stash (yes, I have MULTIPLE parts to my teas in multiple places) and decided that too much of my tea is too old for me to really appreciate and too old for me to feel OK about selling or sending out in swaps. Soooo… I gathered my courage and threw the oldest (5+ years…) out and what was salvageable I am going to take to work tomorrow to give to the few people I know will appreciate it. 

I thought I would feel horrible about it, but actually, it feels great to clear out my stash and make room for the stuff I really really like and the new stuff!!! Also, sharing tea with people who wouldn’t otherwise have access to it is also a great feeling!

Ok, now that I have shared my afternoon adventure,  I am going back to my birthday tea and enjoying it while I read a bit of Dorian Grey! (Yay Steepster book club for pushing me to reread this amazing book!)

It is amazing isn’t it? It’s just me and Madeline in the google docs page making comments so far. Join us! I’d love to see your insight!

Also, you are super brave to toss your old tea. Id probably sneakily serve it iced to my husband. Am I a bad person?

gmathis

Absolutely not. I cant bear to toss stuff, either.

Mercuryhime

That’s a relief. Thanks gmathis! I also feel ok about it cause I made a pitcher of tea yesterday that neither of us liked. I told him to toss it but he opted to drink it rather than waste anything. What a guy. :)

This is the first time I was able to bring myself to do it. I actually feel like it was worth it. There was no way I could have drunk all of that tea in ten year to come… :)

@Mercuryhime- How to I get to your Google Docs page? I would love to share!

Bio

I love tea and have since I was a little girl. Once I could buy my own tea, I began to explore and learn about the extensive and delicious world of tea!

Also, love my French Bulldog (named Sencha…) and my tea oblivious boyfriend. I enjoy ice skating (I am a part time coach), reading, writing, baking, running, and lots of sweets!

My favorite teas tend to be on the sweeter side. Both flavored and plain teas are great to me. Currently going through a flavored tea phase. Enjoying it greatly! : )
