1673 Tasting Notes
VariaTEA dropped this and a giant bag full of all the other teas I bought in group orders, as well as generous samples from both her AND Sil and I am in total tea heaven! I don’t even care that I’m back over 250 teas. There’s just so much good stuff here and I have ZERO temptation to buy more. It’s a good place to be.
This was the first one I had to try of the new ones, and it was just as amazing as I remembered from before. So incredibly good. I put the leftover leaves in the fridge and cold-steeped them so I’ll see how that turns out when I get home tonight!
Woo! I’m getting further from 200! Maybe by the time my Butiki/Lupicia teas come in, I’ll still be under 200!
This is an odd tea but I like it. I was happy to try another cup of it when MissB offered to share some of her teas! Thank you!
Also look! You can click ‘Buy Now!’ I’m happy to see that functionality only because it was misleading before those buttons worked.
Also, sorry I’ve been absent more and more. Life is getting in the way. Work. Trying not to be on my computer all night. Blah. Things are good though! HI GUYS! Just busy
This was one I bought on impulse a few weeks back because I was curious. And it was Mothers day. :P
And this is a strange one! It’s mostly ginger and cinnamon, with a bit of fruit, and then a lingering coolness at the end of the ship from the licorice. So odd. But not bad? I’m enjoying it, and I won’t mind finishing the rest of this 20g pack.
Would I buy more? Meh. Now that my curiosity has been sated, I’m ready to move on!
ETA: 1500th tasting note!
Thanks Dexter3657! (194)
I drank this yesterday and today and now it’s gone, and both times I had interruptions that messed up my careful consideration of this tea. I know that I really enjoyed it, but couldn’t say why.
That’s ok though. I’ve never really had Capital Teas before and now I’m curious about them. They seem to do straight black teas well!
ETA Wait a minute! I remember people talking about them before and they are SERIOUSLY like a 10 minute drive away from my house. What? I wonder if I could just pick up from them? I mean, eventually. After I pick up my box(es) from Sil
Thank you 221tea for sending this sample to me! I’m always curious about the base teas Adagio uses since I only buy the blends. This one was a nice fruity mix that my daughter and I drank all afternoon as iced tea. It was a little tart with the hibiscus but not terribly so, and I could have added agave if it was really bad. We drank it up so quickly – that’s a good sign! I’m glad I got to try it, and if the price is reasonable, I’d consider getting more some time! (If I’m doing an adagio order anyway… I def wouldn’t do it JUST for this tea. :P)
I drank a few cups of this today, and then set the rest aside for VariaTEA! She’s passed on so many great teas to me, and now that she’s thinking about dabbling in more straight teas AND puerh, I figured she should try this.
Everyone should. It’s so amaze!
And if it’s a little too strong, add a dash of milk and steep it for less. I steeped it for 1 min, 5 min and 10 minutes this time around.
It’s a sipdown! (197) I saved this cup for today because it’s the last season of Season 2!
I’m still reeling a little bit from the SPN finale (yet I’m really excited about where they’re going to go with this, and EVEN MORE excited about the fic it’ll generate) but I’m nervous and excited about tonight’s Hannibal finale.
But at least I WILL FINALLY be able to talk about what’s going to happen!!!
Here’s a quick crack!vid for your friday viewing pleasure:
