drank Sweet Potato Pie by Adagio Teas
462 tasting notes

Another tea from the tea box. I swear I’m almost through my small mountain of samples!!!

Moment of truth, I don’t like sweet potato pie. It’s a texture issue. So I was excited to try this tea because I could enjoy the taste of sweet potato pie without having to eat it. That’s a win, win in my book.

The tea is nice. Rich and earthy with just a hint of sweetness. I thought at first that the sweetness was honey, but now I’m thinking caramel. I’m not getting anything that says pastry. Added a bit of sugar which heightened the sweet potato and caramel flavors. It’s nice, but I think the tea was just as nice without the added sweetness. If I were to have this again I’d drink it straight and just enjoy the deep mix of flavors.

To this day, my family makes fun because I can’t stand mashed potatoes—the texture thing. I totally understand what you’re talking about. And bananas. Same reason. (Hmm…sweet potato and banana tea?)

Bio

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
