This was a sample from Shadowfall and now it’s gone! :O

This one is a blueberry tea – very creamy and light – it makes me think of a scone! But I can’t really taste the oolong in there. Oolong be gone? IDK.

It’s really tasty though. I’m enjoying this cup, and will see if it’ll handle a re-steep too!

ETA: There wasn’t enough for a re-steep, but I suspect that I would have enjoyed this more if I’d steeped it for just a little longer. I"ll have to try it again someday!

Well, I didn’t pick it out. Lol!
And I don’t think I ever got a successful resteep when I made it. Kinda a one hit wonder, but tasty nonetheless.

I find a lot of the Adagio teas are like that – well a lot of cheaper teas are like that so that’s just how it goes. I don’t even try to re-steep TARDIS most of the time, but with 6 oz I’m well stocked.

True. You’re paying for the art and idea of drinking the fandom (which sounds really weird to say the more I think about it) more than for a tea that’ll resteep. Lol.

Profile

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
