1691 Tasting Notes
Last sipdown for today! That’s all the firefly teas!
I think I over-steeped this by 10 minutes but it’s totally forgiving. I’m tasting licorice, and orange and lemongrass and it’s really calming. So relaxing. Time for bed.
Dammit. I could possibly buy some of this too. Guys – this person REALLY knows how to blend tea!
ETA There’s no actual licorice in this so maybe it’s the blueberries steeped to the max that I’m tasting?
ETalsoA I’m at 200 teas!!! Bahahah
Oh! I like this one too! It’s a nice black assam, with chai AND lemongrass/coconut. It’s a really interesting combination and I really, really like it. I think this is one of the ones I’ll think about long after it’s gone and want more.
Also, I’m not done yet, but overall I’ve been very impressed with the Firefly teas. The blender has obviously put some thought into each one, and they all taste at least decent with a few standing out. That’s really something! I hope whatshesaid enjoys them as well!
Yeah. This is going on my list, unless it turns terrible once it cools.
Thanks VariaTEA! (202)
Another one from VariaTEA! I’m just working my way through the whole crew. Hahaha. (203, lalalala, Sil, I can’t hear you!)
I really like this one! I’m not sure why that is either because it’s really just a regular chai with added cinnamon, but perhaps that’s all I need? I love the mix of fierce chai toned down with sweet sweet cinnamon. Zoe’s fierce, but she has heart. :)
This is another sample that I was so lucky to try out and review. It’s a nice assam, with just the right amount of malt, and the hint of juiciness underneath. I think that if the price were right it’d be a good one to stock up around drink for every day use!
ETA: This tastes even BETTER once it’s cooled a little. Bumping my rating up in appreciation!
I’m sending the other half of this on to whatshesaid so she can experiment with Adagio’s zany teas, but I want to thank VariaTEA for giving it to me in the first place! FIREFLY!!!
I didn’t realize it was an oolong but I can taste it in the base – just a little bit of roastiness lurking below. I can also taste a little bit of chocolate sweetness and some orange! It’s a nice cup, but not one that’ll linger in my memory for days, so no need to restock. (Unlike Thor. Or Loki… Come back to meeeee)
Thanks again for letting me try this!
