6492 Tasting Notes
sample Sipdown of this one :) against from terri. First off i need to say that there is something about certain adagio teas that makes me sneeze! Non stop….even if i enjoy drinking the tea, i do it while sneezing. This is not the first tea to do it to me, and likely won’t be the last. I don’t know what it is but man…SNEEEZING! lol
In terms of the tea, this one isn’t so bad. It reminds me of that sort of kick you get with ginger peach teas. It’s not an overly artificial peach tea, like so many can and are. I think the spiciness of the chai helps. I wasn’t brave enough to add milk to this to see how it held up because i was quite enjoying my giant cup of sneezing…i mean tea :)
I like this quite a bit. I’d like it even more if i could manage to type the word quite without first typing it “quiet” but that’s not going to happen tonight apparently.
Did i mention my brain is all over the place? it’s likely the sneeezing..and dreaming of #49 sigh
Damn you Terri! No orders until June! WANT! MOAR! NAO!
Holy hannibel, i had this in the morning and let me tell you, i have a single normal person cup’s worth left and it might just be hoarded. Because i am trying to commit to no tea orders until June. It’s going to be hard because i have been thinking about this tea most of today. This is a great assam! mmmmm i have no words beyond “now accepting donations to get me through the month of may” lol I kid! but seriously? This has me wanting to try many more Steven smith teas since this was my first taste of their teas.
I had a mocha latte this morning since i had a bit of extra time in the morning before work. I’m trying to catch up on things so that i can take thrs and friday off or at least friday. While this is still pretty tasty, it may be that matcha is a winter drink for me. I can feel myself slowing down a little in terms of drinking it. Still, this was quiet enjoyable all things considered.
SIPDOWN! (221 for anyone counting….)
oh man terri..this one is great! It’s the deliciousness of mint and a black tea without that icky film on the top of the tea that so many mint chocolate blends have. it’s also a black tea, so that makes me happy. For sure prefer this to read my lips from david’s tea – this is a darker chocolate and makes me happy. May have to pick up some more of this…in june. bah!
I figure what the hell, let’s just have some more coconut! oooooh see this? this really is a delicious pina colada like drink. I can taste the pineapple! and the coconut isn’t overwhelming…yes. i must try this cold brewed! Seriously? I am really digging these teas from purearoma. While not all of them have been out of your world knock your socks off, these are some really nicely blended teas that are better than your average tea company in canada/US, at least in my opinion so far. This one leaves a bit of a dryness in my mouth when i drink it but it’s pineapple! and coconut! but not that artificially gross coconut taste. mmmmmmmmm……….
this tea confuses me. It’s smokey but is also full of berry? There’s something in the blend as well that is making me sneeze but i couldn’t tell you what. Overall this is a pretty tasty blend though i think i prefer my smoke without the berry flavour. I do like the texture of this smoke however. I also don’t really grasp the vanilla that is hiding in here somewhere. However, this was an excellent large sil mug full of fun! Thanks terri!
