Travelling tea box!
So I’m going to let this one air out a bit before I try it again because there’s a bit of a smokiness to it that I think likely came from one of the other teas in the tea box. First impression though, is that this has the potential to be a good little tea. Holding out on rating it though until I get a chance to let it air for a bit.
Travelling tea box!
So I don’t hate this but I totally see how others have called it “pledge” haha I think this might actually be kinda good if you cold brewed it and added sugar so ill have to try that with the rest of my sample :) hot it’s a little intense, and there are more interesting teas that do this better heh
YAY Travelling teabox!
So admittedly i picked this one in part to try a NON black adagio blend to see if it’s just their black or it’s all of their teas. Verdict is…it’s all of their teas. I just don’t understand everyone’s fascination with them. It’s kinda like david’s tea…i mean they’re alright but there’s SOOO much more out there that makes me happier :)
That being said, i don’t hate this blend like i have the black based blends, but it’s also lacking a bit. I REALLY like the sound of this blend but i feel like this compared to what Stacy could pull out of her hat, just isn’t worth it. Drinkable? yes? enjoyable? meh.
Sorry TeaEqualsbliss! :( I’m sure it’s adagio and nothing to do with you. I’m with momo on this…adagio and I just don’t get along.
Thank you Travelling Tea Box A! I do know who included this but i know by the time i get around to reviewing all of the items I snuck out of it, i’ll have forgotten it. So consistency and all you know :)
I was totally distracted while making this. I lost about an hour of my work day this morning when the mailman showed up early which meant i HAAAAD to open my travelling tea box, sort through it, package up teas i took from it etc… you know how it is. PLus i received 2-3 other packages in the mail and i was like it’s CHRISTMAS!!!!!! well as close to it as I’ll get since this year won’t be really christmassy with all our friends being out of town and no time to visit either set of our parents.
Anyway…i’m rambling. This tea… i made while trying to grab lunch and takle 13 different things at work. i distractedly picked up the team to sip and WOAH! HELLO! It was like WOMAN! PAY ATTENTION TO ME! YOU WANTED ME! NOW LISTEN UP!
I’m not sure what I was expecting with this tea. I think I pretty much had decided i was either going to hate it or love it. The jury is still out on how i feel about bergamot. Well folks, i love this. Its not a tea i’d drink all the time, but it IS a tea i will thoroughly enjoy and likely replenish when I run out. It’s vanilla..and citrus and smooth. It isn’t a dessert tea but it’s not quite a MORNING tea if you know what i mean. I feel like i should be drinking this with a scone. of some sort. it’s fruity..and yet not.
I will have to give this even more attention when I have less urgent things from work. All in all, a giid first step in my travelling tea box!
Today, I’m having a rough day. Got nearly all the way to work before realising that one thing i need to do work at work…was at home. So trekked all the way back home to get my computer. This was after waking up super late and not having time to clean up the kitchen enough to make tea or my smoothie. Soooo I’m working from home. Seems stupid to schlep all the way downtown again now that I have my lap top.
On that note, I wanted something to help turn my day around. I was about to reach for my wonderful laoshan black when i remembered that I still had some golden fleece in my cupboard. Yes..I’m a hoarder of things that I like that I can’t be sure of getting again. Though i also realise you need to enjoy things so that you DO, instead of always waiting for that perfect day.
mmmmmm at first sip i remember why i enjoyed this tea so much. I still struggle with whether i enjoy this one or the laoshan black better. they’re both pretty darn high on my list of yum! I am so going to enjoy running through a few steepings of this. sweet sweet delight.
Black tea of the morning! I’m trying to sipdown a few moer of the teas in my cupboard before I crack open the new teas I received from Stacy. My only real complaint being the bags Butiki uses as they aren’t quite airtight and often bits of tea will make their way out the bottom. This of course means I have to try and put them in other tins or feel complelled to drink them down faster.
All that being said, I really enjoy this tea. I’m looking forward to comparing it with a few of the other teas i picked up from stacy. I need more straight teas in my life. :)
Oh man…i’d forgotten how good this is. Morning smoothie and while I was tempted to do a sipdown on my boerry matcha THIS begged me to drink it this morning. I am so glad i listened! I added a dash of cheesecake matcha to bring out a bit of creaminess as well. Man let me tell you, there’s a reason i have a back up package of this unopened in my cupboard. SOOOO good!
Made this into a cold brew and it was a good time. I am truly enjoying the teas from Stacy that have made their way into my cupboard. There’s a small part of me that really wants to make this alcoholic :) In any case this is a great fall tea for those evenings where the tempaerature dips down a little.
