Mmm. Can I tell you that after making up come Mate Chocolate for the husband to try, this smells simply delightful? Because it does. Like angelfood cake with some strawberries spread over it. Sadly, the taste doesn’t match up to the smell but it’s not the blend’s fault – it’s the Adagio flavored tea base. It’s too strong and not very smooth and just overtakes things. Sigh. This is why I always have Adagio flavored teas with sugar and creamer. Sadly, with additives, the tea base is made to take a step back, but it kind of mutes the lovely strawberry flavor. Now it tastes like vanilla cake with a hint of strawberry syrup decorating the icing. All in all, a tasty, fluffy tea that has the potential for awesome-ness but ends up as just good.

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.
