2918 Tasting Notes
This is such a lovely tea.
1T + 8oz X 3/5min
I do believe I like it better following Verdant’s suggested western parameters, but I wanted to try it this way as well. It is still wonderful, although the 5 min steep was a little weak.
Next time I’ll go back to the more leaf, less time mode, because that’s where this tea really shines.
It’s not fair for me to be reviewing this tea now, at 9pm, when I drank it 12 hours ago.
5G + 4oz (rinse) X 15/30/45/60/75/90 seconds, then 2/3/4/5 minutes.
Some of the steeps were drank on their own, others were combined in a larger cup.
All in all, it is a delicious tea, richly flavored with Malty goodness.
That’s all I got!
Another sipdown from Sil & Smiracles
I picked this one because I recognized the name of the character from teen wolf, & most of the other adagio fandom blends left in the box are characters from god knows what.
I didn’t really care much for this, but that’s really because most of the time I don’t care much for cherry flavored things. Still worth trying.
Another sample from Sil & Schmiracles.
I used to drink a lot of gunpowder green & mint together. It’s very refreshing, especially iced. I’ve never tried it with jasmine added, & since I like jasmine sometimes, it’s a nice addition. Not something I’d want to keep in my collection, but nice to try.
We went out to breakfast @ this southwest themed diner nearby. Then we went to Global Foods, a place that sells food from everywhere in the world. The kids & I used to shop there a lot. It’s such a fun place to walk through. I’d let each kid pick out something, & they had every kind of produce you could imagine. My son Drew & I used to go there after we dropped his sisters at school & load up on frozen samosas & banana cakes (made with sticky rice & banana, wrapped in a banana leaf – you steam them & they’re especially nice drizzled with a little coconut milk).
Why did Tony & I go there? He was out of his beloved Ahmad Earl Grey. The last time he ordered some, his debit card became compromised, so I did a search & found out they have his favorite tea. Better yet, they have it in a larger size, twice the size of what he usually orders, for roughly the same price, without the shipping. He’s in heaven. They have other teas, & I might have try out some of them. But for today, I came back to Tony’s, made him a cup of his EG, & I enjoyed a cup of this, a lovely breakfast blend.
Another one from Sil, which I think she got from Schmiracle.
I used to have a pretty good collection of fandom teas from Adagio. My sons & I were really having a good time with their blends for awhile, especially the Dr. Who & Hobbit ones.
So, the first thing I noticed when I opened this was the aroma of almond, which was kind of pronounced. I’ve tried all three of the teas in this blend, but never together. It’s actually pretty tasty, especially with Maple added.
Thank you Sil for sharing this sample with me!
This tea smells like eggnog, & I love eggnog! I also love nutmeg, & I grate it into so many things, especially pancakes.
This tea is delicious, especially with a little Maple added (of course, how could I not?)
This should be a permanent blend in Ms Stacy’s Arsenal of Awesomeness!
