drank Foxtrot by Adagio Teas
382 tasting notes

I see a light at the end of the giant tin of foxtrot tunnel! Not that I don’t love foxtrot, but turns out that I am not immune from becoming bored with it. It doesn’t help that chamomile is such a distinctive taste and tends to show up in a bunch of other teas as well. So…soon it will be goodbye, foxtrot – hopefully before my teafrog order gets in so I have at least one tin ready for it. It’s been swell, but I’ve moved on! I’ve embraced a method of tea drinking more befitting to my extremely short attention span. One in which I eschew such silly labels as “a staple tea” (except for Earl Grey, I will always love you Earl Grey!) and live in the tea moment (don’t worry, I’m not writing carpe tea-em again. Oh wait I just did. Sorry!) I’m a free spirit, foxtrot! You can’t tie me down!

We’ll always have Yokohama though.

I ordered a full pound of FT once … thought I’d never see the end of it!

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.
