drank Chamomile by Adagio Teas

This tea certainly tasted sweet, but it lacked body. I love black teas so this herbal tea really didn’t impress me. It’s more of a tea I would share with my family who are used to sugar pop and the like, with dessert or sweet things. But on its own? Probably not.

Boiling 8 min or more

First time tasting an oolong and it was…interesting. The leaves smelled good, a bit grassy but good. The tea itself was ok, a bit of sweetness which was good but I just didn’t warm up to grassyness of the flavor. I may try it again with less leaves but I don’t know.

drank B.F.F by Lazy Days Tea Company

I was really excited to try out this tea. The description made it sound great and the smell when you opened the tin was phenomenal. But after following the directions word for word, it simply did not meet expectations. It smells great after and during steeping, but the first sip starts with apple tones and finishes with bitterness. It may have just been that I shouldn’t have followed the directions word for word and I will experiment more before I put this into the pile to be exchanged.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 30 sec

drank Ceylon Tea by Ahmad Tea London

This tea reminds of Ahmad Tea’s English Breakfast tea with a little less flavor. However, it’s still very enjoyable especially with the addition of milk.

drank Peppermint by Adagio Teas

I realize I am sort of biased when I say this, but this (herbal) tea is amazing. I love all things peppermint but I had been drinking mainly teabags of peppermint for most of my life when r/tea introduced me to loose leaf and I ordered this and others from Adagio. This simply bursts in your mouth with the refreshing taste of peppermint without being overpowering. I don’t need to add anything to it and it’s perfect. This has become my go to drink before bed.

drank English Afternoon by Ahmad Tea

This is the 3rd time I’ve drank (such a funny word) this tea and I’ve never had to add anything to it, it simply tastes good on its own. It’s comforting and has plenty of body without being overpowering.

I’ve been drinking this tea relatively consistently in the last couple weeks and I am always happy with it. I love the flavors that come out but since I am still a teenager and my taste buds aren’t fully developed I generally add a bit of milk for creamy and sugar because I do still like sweetness.

drank Candy Cane by Adagio Teas
19 tasting notes

The smell when I first opened it got me really excited about trying it. However, when I did try it I was unimpressed. There was very little candy cane like flavor and I needed to add milk and sugar just to get it to taste like anything other than slightly like black tea. I was very disappointed but relieved that I got it as a free sample and didn’t have to pay for it because if I had I would’ve sent it back if I could.
