drank Black Adder by Red Seal
65 tasting notes

While not technically a tea, Black Adder has been a staple in my home for many years .. I love it hot and I love it cold; I just leave the bag in my cup so it gets nice and strong then keep topping up with water until I can no longer taste it ..

It’s also a wonderful blender so if variety is your thing then try it mixed with other herbals or flavoured greens – today I threw a bag of this and a bag of Healtheries Green Tea with Mandarin & Limeflower in my travel mug, filled with boiling water and went on my way = so so good!

It’s very popular with guests, and I really wish I could buy it in larger amounts – this is the only reason I didn’t give it a rating of 100!

Preparation

Bio

For many years I only drank coffee, and the occasional herbal tisane .. But eventually I got sick of people complaining that I had no ‘real tea’ in the house so I bought a box of cheap tea bags and remembered WHY I didn’t drink the stuff!

And so life went on until the day an English friend invited me to visit her home .. She made us a pot of (loose leaf) Earl Grey to enjoy in the garden – and finally I’d found a Tea that I truly wanted to drink!

Now-a-days my favourite alternates between home-made Masala Chai, Lady Grey with a few extra drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Dessert Flavoured Blacks, and my latest interest is Dragon Peal Jasmine ..

any less = I wouldn’t drink it again
70 – 80 = Nice, but there’s better
80 – 90 = Mmm, Yummy Stuff ..
90 – 100 = Unique, Stand-Outs, & Can Not Be Withouts!
