This is actually quite good. It has a dark, somewhat heavy taste but that works for it. I can’t really pick out the almond or the valentines which is fine by me because that means that it isn’t overwhelming. Valentines tends to hit me as too bitter so any tea with too much of it just comes across as a bit too rough for me. Anyway, this ends up being a fairly stout tea with smooth edges that I think would hit the spot on mornings that I can’t deal with something sweet but don’t want something harsh either. Pretty rich and feels very full-flavored in my mouth.

I’m so glad you reviewed this one; I’ve been waiting to hear about the various Twilight-related teas on Adagio!

I’ve tried 3 other of the Twilight blends that Sarah has made and haven’t really been a fan. But she tends to go for fruitier teas than I do and she goes for things that are best iced (though it was in the summer the last time I really talked to her so that could have been a summer thing for her, not sure). But this one I do like though. It reminded me a bit of the Hades blend, which I enjoyed, but without the cinnamon. Probably because both have Mambo in them…?

Sorry, I still refuse to try anything associated with that miserable excuse for literature.

Hahah! I accidentally ended up at a B&N during the release party for #4. SO disturbing. I can’t even begin to tell you. I had no idea what I had stumbled into since I hadn’t heard of the books… there were just lots and lots of teenage girls wandering around in prom dresses. And one really interesting guy (he wasn’t in a prom dress though). I did end up reading the books months and months after that when my SIL gave me the first one. But I will forever be disturbed by the memory of the crowd at that release party.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
