Unbrewed leaves smell sweet, and almost floral.
Brewed, it’s a yellow liquor. Not too veggy, not too astringent. Not too anything really. Very basic, not unpleasant, but not that really impresses.

I’ll drink the rest of the sample, but I probably won’t reorder – it just doesn’t make an impression.

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.
