This tea is delicious as always.

I just ordered from Adagio today and got a surprise: if you spend $19 or more you get a sampler pack of those new savory teas they have. Anyone else feeling brave enough to try them along with me?

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec
Cofftea

I just ordered mine and am sending some to friends for Christmas.

…They make it sound like the white cucumber is new as well, but it’s not. But it IS amazing!

teafiend

Ooooo, count me in! I just need to get around to ordering more teas from them.

Auggy

I so want to try the savory teas. I have no idea if I’ll like them or not but they just sound so odd!

LENA

My order is coming in late tomorrow. I’m pretty excited to try the sweet potato pie and the sesame tea.

Suzi

:D I ordered that sampler pack as well – I’m so curious about the sweet potato pie tea!

Jillian

The seasame one actually sounds quite good and like you guys I’m curious about the sweet potato one. But I suspect the artichoke green is going to induce a few ‘bleh’ reactions from at least a few people.

I made this cup a bit stronger than usual with a bit of extra dry leaf and a longer steeping time. The result is more robust with a hint of bitter tanins starting to come through but the dark chocolate takes care of them nicely.

Added a touch of honey – because it’s not like this tea is sweet enough already or anything. ;) I also skimped on the milk more than usual and it came out sweet but very cocoa-y.

So you wound up with a concoction somewhere between tea and hot cocoa? That sounds so tasty.

Jillian

Well not quite but close! And yeah it was delicious, who needs dessert when you have this tea? XD

Oversteeped this a little I think, though with this tea that isn’t a big deal.

Hopefully this wakes me up at least a little bit. Urgh.

The chocolate in this tea isn’t a sweet milk chocolate, it’s more of a dark, cocoa-rich chocolate, the way it was eaten (or drank) originally.

There truly is little in this world that chocolate cannot fix. Or, at the very least, improve.

Mmmm, had this with a touch of skim milk. It’s so good and satisfying on a cold, grey day like this.

I mixed this with the lemon grass. I like this green tea, but I don’t reach for it often enough to buy it again. Great for blends though.

My general opinion of any lapsang souchong is that it’s like drinking bacon rinds. After disliking my small sample, I passed it to a friend, who did the same to another friend, and I’m afraid it ended up fertilizing somebody’s houseplants.

An excellent chai. Perfect with sugar and a little bit of milk. Not as strong as Adagio’s Masala Chai (one of my favorites) but the coconut and lemon flavors make this stand out beautifully. A new favorite I’ll want to keep around.

I’m all out of my Fujian Baroque so I turned to this number instead. I do like it, but it just has none of the cocoa and an added smokiness that isn’t always to my liking. It makes a nice morning tea and it’ll have to do before this next round of shopping.

When I was at the Field Museum of Natural History, I saw a diorama of a tea plantation in Sri Lanka.

Carolyn

That sounds really intereating. Are you referring to the Field Museum in Chicago?

DId you happen to know of any good tea places there? We’re heading to Chicago in two weeks and I’m trying to figure out where the best places to go for tea are.

Just what I needed after a long day trekking around Chicago.
