drank Milk Oolong by Mandala Tea
5075 tasting notes

whoops! somehow this came out of my cupboard by accident at some point so um +1 tea today ugh. I had a cup of this because i needed something that i knew was refreshing and delicious and would clear my tastebuds of the adagio teas i’d been drinking. This is almost gone since i’ve been sharing it with a number of ppl since this is one of the best, if no the best milk oolong that i’ve enjoyed as a NON lover of oolongs… will restock when i eventually finish this off

Although I’m not a lover of milk oolongs, even I agree this is the best one I’ve had :)

thanks cavocorax for this one. it’s not a bad little chai tea. Still never going to be a favourite but the blending on this was at least something interesting. i like the addition of the candycane which smooths things out a little…though let’s be honest, once you’ve tried a few adagio blends, you feel like you’re tried most of them heh

sorry cavo…. fairly unremarkable adagio non descript blend. :( at least it was drinkable! hahah

Cavocorax

You’re not going to hurt my feelings by not liking a random Adagio fandom blend. :P At least Happily Headless was a 74!

Sil

yep adagio blends over 70 for me usually mean i’m pretty happy with them…i just can’t in good conscious rate them higher compared to my other teas lol

another from cavocorax this one isnt’ terribad but it’s not a favourite. I’m pretty picky with my chai like teas and this one doesn’t really do it for me..but at least it doesn’t taste like “random adagio tea” :)

Cavocorax

Terribad as in bad or terribad as in "I hate it, but Terri would probably like it?

Sil

Hahaha I like that! But now I meant as in more than bad but not quite terrible. Aka terribad

cavocorax let me have some of this and i greatly appreciate it. I am fairly certain that through this adagio journey i am even more convinced that i will never love their teas. I have certainly gone a ways up the hill from hating them to being “ok” with them..but who wants to drink "OK’ teas when they can have AWESOME TEAS!?!?!? not me.

I think An-juli has more blends that i’m ok with than other blenders. this one falls into that ok category. it’s a nice blending of flavours and the cup was decent enough to drink. so yay for that! thanks cavo!

VariaTEA sent this one my way and all i can say is..

HOW DO YOU PEOPLE DRINK THIS!!! holy crap. i thought cotton candy was bad..this is way sweeter in that i might as well shove my face in a bag of sugar, pour maple syrup over my head and then lick a sucker.

not. for.me.

happy i got the chance to confirm though lol

Veronica

drank Yun Nan Dian Hong Black Tea by Teavivre
5075 tasting notes

sipdown! farewell December tea :) Not sure that i’ll get through January’s teas this month as there are a LOT of them, but it is nice to at least know that when there are months that i’ve purchased less tea, i’ll make up some of that time. I’m really just doing it to be conscious about drinking my “older” teas even though i realise some ppl would love to have cupboards as “fresh” as mine lol.

I have quite enjoyed this one, though the reality is, i’d prefer 50g quantities from teavivre more than 100g in nearly every instance. Otherwise i start to feel like it’s too much to drink up. :) Not sure if i’ll reorder this one even if it is a lovely tea, ONLY because there are others i prefer more from Teavivre :)

Terri HarpLady

This is a nice tea, which I currently have plenty of.
Want me to send you 25G or so? ;)

Sil

no no no no no

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
