drank Lemon Soleil by Adagio Teas
382 tasting notes

Trying to get through my adagio samples.
So in my previous note I was all like, this is so lemony! But this time around, it didn’t seem that lemony at all. It was kind of bland. I think having all those wonderful extremely flavored teas from Art of Tea and Golden Moon has spoiled me. Or maybe I’m just not that into lemon. It does give that kind of ick back of the throat scratchy feeling. And the leaves still have that weird over chemically too much lemon smell. I wonder if this tea has a really short shelf life or something? Not a good quality for a tea in the cupboard of a compulsive sample buyer like me.

Down goes the rating!

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
