drank Keemun Rhapsody by Adagio Teas
270 tasting notes

Before brewing, the leaves have a sweet, molasses-like scent that reminds me of good pipe tobacco.

After brewing, it becomes a light, but slightly smokey, good basic black. It stands up on its own without sweetening or milk/cream. It can steep forever in my Lock & Lock tea bottle where the leaves stay in, and it doesn’t get bitter.

This is my go-to at work for something that can be taken straight, allowed to cool off and still taste good.

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, my husband got me 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.
