Cold brewed in the fridge for about 18 hours using 2.5 tsp leaf (I think?) for ~500 ml water.

First time trying a) green rooibos, and b) an Adagio product, despite my username. I think I prefer rooibos green, though to be fair I haven’t yet drunk enough of the regular red kind to develop an opinion on it.

Flavor was a cross between candy-like and medicinal citrus (mostly orange), with a slight tingly/prickly sensation in the mouth – not sure whether that’s the flavoring or the rooibos. I didn’t love it, but it seems like a pretty decent blend.

I grew up in New Jersey drinking Celestial Seasonings, and now I live in England, where I developed a taste for a good builder’s brew. Sometime in 2012 I bought my first loose teas, and my collection has since spiraled out of control. Still quite a novice, due to not drinking enough tea to keep pace with the amount I keep buying.

Some things I’m pretty sure I do like:
- most florals (jasmine, orange blossom, osmanthus, etc)
- buttery, vegetal greens
- malty blacks (usually with milk & sugar)
- oolongs that aren’t too heavily roasted

Not really feeling the flavored teas lately, for whatever reason.

All tasting notes use unfiltered hard tap water, unless otherwise specified.

No real method to my numerical ratings yet, but we’ll see what develops. So far I’ve only given ratings of 90 or higher if I actually get excited while drinking the tea.
