drank Birthday Tea by Adagio Teas
5 tasting notes

First, as I usually do, I smelled the tea leaves.

They already smelled very much like caramel with just a hint of vanilla in there somewhere.

When I had steeped the tea, I removed the leaves to find the refreshing sight of a brownish red liquor in my cup.

I tasted the tea plain at first.
It was already a little sweet, without having to add sweetener, and it was also smooth like cream. The flavor of caramel was very bold, blending in with a strong sapor of vanilla.

I then added sweetener and some cream.

The brew gushed brilliant flavors into my mouth and over my tongue, lingering as I swallowed what seemed to be sweet candle light from a birthday cake.
The caramel mixed with the vanilla and came.to.life.

It was like drinking the essence of a birthday cake: Very sweet, yet balanced; very creamy and smooth and wet on the tongue, the savoring flavor tardy in my mouth long after each sip I took and swallowed eagerly.

I would rate this tea as one of my absolute favorites! huzzah!

(I drank at least nine other mugs of this tea throughout the day~)

Bio

I am the second child out of three biological girls, and the second oldest out of six children and several foster children off and on. I am a sixteen year old composer of choral pieces and orchestral, sometimes symphonic, pieces. I have a huge passion for music and creative fantasy writing; I’ve been working on a novel for six years, hopefully to be a series called “The Door to Ellm.” Though I’m not very close to finishing…

I usually try to go and hide from the vulgar masses who scream and gnash their teeth (in other words, my five little brothers).

My favorite kinds of tea are the very floral ones or the candyish cakey flavored ones~
I can appreciate earthy teas as well, although I do not prefer some of the very smokey teas.
