Trying to work my way through the mountain of samples I still have in my cupboard before I am “allowed” to buy more tea.

This one is interesting. I just don’t know what to make of the flavor… sometimes I like it, sometimes I just find it odd. I’ve already established that I don’t prefer Chinese black teas, but I can’t put my finger on why.

Do you think it might be the earthy quality most chinese black teas hold?

Probably. Some of the Chinese blacks I see described as “earthy” are almost… musty(?) to me, whereas other times I do find a likable earthy flavor. I’m not sure what the distinction is.

drank Raspberry by Adagio Teas
183 tasting notes

After all the trouble I had getting these flavored teas to taste right, my husband (who doesn’t drink tea, and have never made a cup in his life) managed to make a pretty good pot.

I taste the Ceylon pretty front and center today, which I hadn’t experienced before. The raspberry is just a mild, sweet, syrupy taste… not bad. Not great, but not bad.

Finally feeling well enough to have something caffeinated again. Made a pot with a bit of amber sugar, and finished Catching Fire this morning. I think this is my favorite tea.

Normally, herbal in the morning would be unheard of, but I’m not feeling too hot right now, and the caffeine would just make it worse. This is very soothing.

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.
