drank Chamomile by Adagio Teas
357 tasting notes

I really tried to like this tea, but after a half cup I gave up on it for now. Somewhere I’d read that full-on chamomile was pretty intense and not what you’d probably expect. Even knowing that, I was floored at how much I disliked this. Chamomile lovers please don’t read this next part: I’d describe it as the smell of a musty old church and the taste is like if you licked the carpet at aforementioned church. I won’t utterly give up on this, but it’ll be awhile before I brave it again. GA

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.

TG=Teagasm
NE=Nice Enough
M=Meh
