drank Almond by Adagio Teas
276 tasting notes

I got a sample pouch of this on the order before last, and have had it a couple of times since. There’s probably about 2 “servings” left after this, though each of those will get steeped multiple times.

The dry leaves smell strongly of almond, but there aren’t any actual almond pieces in my sample. It smells sweet.

Brewed, it’s not bitter, but it is slightly astringent.

I tossed it in my Lock & Lock bottle this morning, and will feed it water through the day, drinking it unsweetened.

Decent basic tea with a little bit of flavor.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 8 min or more

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.
