So I was trying to do 5 things at once on the internet, as I usually do, and then I took a sip of this and had to DROP EVERYTHING.

This tea is just great. It’s sweet, slightly tart with the blackberries and oh so creamy. And I was wrong – it’s different enough from the TARDIS blend so I’m very happy I have both.

I don’t know how I’ll ever get sick of either of them, but I’ve got 3 oz of this and 6 of the other so, who knows?

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 30 sec

Yay! Glad you liked it too!

I have some of this but am nervous to try because it smells a bit strong. I gave my TARDIS blend away because it was too floral.

I find the trick with Adagio blends is to steep for 2.5 min or less at less than boiling. I don’t find it too strong that way.

Imma have to steal some of your adagio teas when you get here lol

I’ve made a note on my spreadsheet!

Sil

Tardis too! Terri likely didn’t send me any ‘cause of the earl grey factor but i’ll give it a shot since you like it haha

Cavocorax

Done! It’s on the list. No guarantee you’ll like them, but if you do short steep times it’s pretty good. I could see it getting too perfumy at longer times, but I’m pretty sensitive to that too.

Fandoms go a bit of a way towards making me like teas though – sadly. :P

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)
