3007 Tasting Notes

drank Almond Oolong by Adagio Teas
3007 tasting notes

Bubble bath brew, with a little stevia. Kind of like drinking an almond cookie.

And this is a sipdown!
Also, Leif wants you to all know that he also completed a Sipdown of the Avada Kadavra blend from Adagio. He loved it. I still never tried it iced, but he says it’s especially awesome that way.

drank Hazelnut by Adagio Teas

A nice toasty cup of Hazelnut!
My only wish would be that the base wasn’t Ceylon, but it’s still tasty!
I even added a touch of maple syrup to it.

Have you tried the honeybush version?

drank White Monkey by Adagio Teas
3007 tasting notes

The name of this tea is White Monkey.
It is not a white tea. It is a green tea.
However, the flavor is very light, much more like a white tea, IMO.
A pleasant cup, but not particularly exciting.

I’m still working on some of the teas in the box Sil sent to me awhile back. This one is a nice cup, which I brewed for driving around running errands (including the PO, & you know what that means Sil).
This has a kind of ‘cheesy’ flavor, as in it reminds me a bit of aged cheese. I don’t really know how else to describe it, ha!

My first tea of the day, & I love the bold, sweet, & mildly smokey & malty character of this deliciously smooth cup!

This is my final tea of the night, the third tea from Feb TOMC.
I’ve drank so much tea this evening that I’ll probably be up peeing for hours.
Thus is life.
It is a pleasant blend, & I probably have enough of all 3 teas for one more session, next month.

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

After reading the name of this tea, I had to click over to the tea’s page. This sounds really interesting, Terri.

Then I went to see if you made any further notes on it, and saw you didn’t care for it. LOL

This was the third tea of the evening.
This is a savory oolong, & the main flavor I’m picking out is of lightly roasted veggies, green beans especially. Also sourdough bread.
There is also a floral element & a metalic sensation that I’m not really into.

I spent the afternoon sipping on 3 different cups. The first one was the silver buds sheng from Mandala. I’m still having a cup once in awhile, it just keeps steeping!

The 2nd tea is this Tieguanyin, from Feb TOMC. It’s a mild cup, lightly green & floral, with a creaminess too it. Flavorwise, I’m tasting oatstraw, & as I continued it took a bit of a fruitiness & even a bready kind of taste.

One of the things I like about Shengs is their ability to clear my head. Even though this one is “Sheng Lite”, it still has that ability. I just drank it the other day, but this is a new month & it is the first one on my Sheng list, going alphabetically (by brand).

I’m really enjoying it!

drank Classic Black by Art of Tea
3007 tasting notes

I got this in a trade with TastyBrew.
I brewed a 16oz pot of it to share with my student, & we were both surprise to note a noticeable fruity flavor to it that the scent did not imply. The flavor also had a really nice fruitiness, probably blackberry.

I know for a fact that Drew polished off the Tardis Blend yesterday, (Sipdown…already accounted for in my list), so I’m wondering if he didn’t rinse the pot well enough? Or maybe the steeping basket? I’ll probably mention it to him, for future reference, but to be quite honest, it really was tasty!

I have enough of this to have it one more time, & I’ll know for sure then. Thanks TastyB!

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
