drank Keemun Concerto by Adagio Teas
152 tasting notes

Has kind of a roasty, vegetal flavor (sweet potato?), with a slight corn cereal-like taste in the background. I get a lot of chocolate notes on scent, which I couldn’t taste right away, but it is there in the aftertaste. No harshness.
After subsequent times drinking this I definitely prefer it with sugar, seems to accentuate all of the tasting notes I like in there. I also like a relatively short steeping time at lower temperatures.

Preparation

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
