Last cup! I am going to miss this tea! I will definitely re-order once I go through some of my other teas and reduce the stash!

Made the last of this today. Had it hot as a latte in the morning, and made Lebanese Tea (iced tea with lemon and rosewater) for lunch. I will miss this!

Oh man. Forgot how much I like this tea. Brought it to work, and I am almost through the packet. Just enough for one more cup, I think. It takes a little more leaves to get a strong cup than most of my teas, so I underbrewed a little this morning. Still has a nice strong aroma. Must order more soon.

Finishing this sample packet off. Made an all right work tea. Nothing amazing.
I am not through the spice sampler. Need to find a new work tea!

Got this in a sampler pack, used as a work tea. Polishing it off today, and I don’t think I have reviewed it once. I can’t think of anything to say about it – it’s tea, and it functions ok as work tea, but it really doesn’t stand out.

drank Ceremonial Matcha by Art of Tea

Backlog. Apparently the difference in making matcha versus regular tea doesn’t trigger the “hey, I should log this” actions in my brain :D

I am perfectly happy with this matcha, it whisks up nicely. A little bit clumpy at times, but only when working in primitive conditions (ie work!).

I fall short on logging matcha as well. I’m not sure what it is…

drank Almond by Adagio Teas

Sipdown. I really need to learn to use fewer leaves. There wasn’t much left of this, and I decided to brew it anyway. It was enough. It made a decent cup of tea.

I definitely enjoyed this tea more this time around from the last time I had received a sample. But, I doubt I will purposely get it again.

Apparently I tried this tea 3 years ago, and didn’t like it much.
Opened up the new sample I have at work this morning and brewed a cup. I am liking it better this go-around. Mild and inoffensive, no bitterness, no alcohol undertone like I get with a lot of nut-flavored teas.

Will definitely try another cup tomorrow.

Not bad, but not great, won’t re-order. I think I have maybe one more cup in the sample pouch. OK work tea.

drank Sencha with Matcha by Steepster

This stuff is so good. I had to order some despite being determined to reduce my tea stash. I love finding something I enjoy without adding milk and sugar. It’s sweet on it’s own without being overly sweet. My new favorite at the moment, which is saying a lot, since I usually prefer black tea with milk and sugar.

Bio

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, I received a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
