drank Christmas by Adagio Teas
1090 tasting notes

Well, this must be the complete opposite from the iced tea I just had. Christmas! On the hottest day of the year so far! Thank you for the sample, Shelley Lorraine! I was craving a poor man’s blueberry crumble (blueberries sprinkled with graham crackers over the top. No, I have no idea what I was doing either.) So I thought I needed a cinnamon tea to go along with it.

This seems to be a chai blend with very little ingredients other than the black tea. But brewed, it seems to be quite clovey, no orange, not a ton of cinnamon. I’m not sure how it would taste much like chai if there is so very little chai ingredients. hmm. I like the tough Adagio black tea base. A bit brisk and astringent. I possibly steeped it too long crumbling the graham crackers. If you’re getting this tea for the ingredients it might be a disappointment. I don’t love this one from Adagio but I sure seem to love most of the others.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
