505 Tasting Notes

This is decent, but certainly not my new favourite vanilla tea. I’m mostly tasting the vanilla in the aftertaste not the actual sip. Kinda disappointing since Steep City Teas are usually really pretty good.

And work is horrible and I’m going to die of boredom.

drank Valentines by Adagio Teas

This has some rose in it so I thought it would be appropriate for Mother’s Day as well as Valentine’s Day. Called my mother up, I’m the only one this year that doesn’t get to see her today, both of my siblings managed to be in the same location as her this year. Oh well.

This tea is…okay. It’s a little sweet and a little bitter and an okay taste, but nothing to write home about. I like the strawberries, and the chocolate doesn’t come through very well, and I’m pretty sure it’s the rose that’s making it bitter, but I can’t be completely sure.

More minty than yesterday, but still entirely pleasant. And it’s almost time to go home!

drank Yunnan Jig by Adagio Teas

This tea is less impressive now that I’ve had some better Yunnan teas but I still like it. Made a pot for the afternoon at work and hopefully I can remember to drink it before I leave. And clean out the pot. Trying not to stain my Breville at work.

Always nice to get back to the classics. I really like this one.

Well, it’s certainly very berry. Tartness from hibiscus detracts from it though. Tastes slightly like watered down fruit juice, which is not my favourite kind of ‘tea’. Thanks to yssah for the sample.

Thanks to yssah for this sample.

This is very fruity. Somewhat citrusy from the lemon but very fruity, though I’m not good at picking out ‘mango’ flavour from anything unless it is an actual mango. Pretty decent blend.

Tasty but overly sweet today. And the 2% milk just tastes weird to me.

Using 2% milk today, the kitchen was out of skim. Tastes marginally thicker but not better.
