drank Toasted Mate by Adagio Teas
183 tasting notes

Funny story; I swapped a few teas with Meghann M for some of Adagio’s new mate samples. The next day, I received an order from Adagio (a tasting set) and suddenly remembered that I’d been promised the mate sampler with my next order, after making a comment on Facebook about missing out on that deal. (Tea companies are truly awesome sometimes, don’t you think?)

Well, maybe not so much funny as boring. Anyway. I now have far more mate than anyone should.

This is definitely a new experience for me. I’ve been curious about mate for some time, but I hadn’t any idea what it would taste like. I’m having trouble putting it into words at the moment. Just… toasty. And earthy. And good, but not mind-blowing.

Also, not knowing how to make an accent on the ‘e’ is driving me crazy.

Oh no! I’m sorry we traded for something and you now have double and don’t know if you’ll like it:(. Feel free to look through my cupboard and let me know if I can at least send you some fun new samples to try. 2nd of each is quite a bit of non mind blowing tea! I’d be more than happy to send you something else!

No, it’s cool. I’ll probably just pass along the non-opened ones at some point soon. Honestly, I really don’t need any more tea right now. I just stuck all my favorites in a box, and told myself I can’t have them back until I do something with the pile in the cupboard, lol. So once I figure out which ones I can tolerate, the others must find new homes.

I’m a habitually high-rater. Maybe I’m easily-impressed.

90-100 – A – I love these teas, and want to keep them in rotation.

80-89 – B – These teas are good, and I would never turn them down.

70-79 – C – These teas are sort of middle of the road. Drinkable, but would never be my first choice.

60-69 – D – I don’t like these teas, but they are palatable under certain conditions.

0-59 – E – Do. Not. Want.
