drank Pomegranate Green by Adagio Teas
382 tasting notes

Backlogging from last night, but also from today because I didn’t finish it and now am drinking it cold, yes I have terrible habits, thanks:
I have to say I’ve gone kind of eh on this tea. I just wish the pomegranate flavor was stronger. Or maybe that’s just because I’ve run out of pomegranate seeds in my sample. On the other hand, I’ve read in other notes that the presence of stuff like actual berries in other teas is just there for aesthetic purposes rather than actually affecting the flavor. Is this also true in the case of pomegranate seeds? Dunno! If it IS true, then what I had last night is exactly the same as it’s always been and the whole “make sure there’s a seed in” thing was persykerlogickal.

Definitely prefer the spiced green, which would be why I ordered an entire container of it, I imagine.

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.
