Amazingly good and sweet enough that there’s no need for sugar.

I loved this, but I’m a huge fan of minty teas. It’s great for mixing with others.

drank The Scientist by Adagio Teas

I suspect I used way too much leaf but the green in it threw me off. But it turned out really surprisingly nice when sugar and milk are added. Is a great EG variation. Reminds me of perhaps Czar Nicholas I think. Or something similar. The green in with the black still throws me off though, but good flavor. Might actually have to get a full size of this one.

Had it this morning. I’m almost out! It reminds me of the holidays. I love how it has the bits of chestnut in there.

Resteep and cloudy mystery solved. The resteep is of this mornings leaves (as reported below). The bergamot is gone (no surpise there), but its still a good cuppa good tea. Brewed with good color, even less astringent, very light flavor and not cloudy.
I realized, as I was resteeping, that the cloudiness was due to the fact that I made a mocha (instant hot chocolate made with coffee) in my mug yesterday and didn’t wash it out…a little extra flavor and who knows what else….

Used up the last of my New Vithanakande and only had about 1/2 what I needed, so I made up the difference with Earl Grey Supreme (all these from Harney & Sons). Darn good! I ended up with a slightly cloudy brew that had an oil sheen on the surface (Earl Grey?) and a mild bergamot taste while hot. About 1/2 sat until it was cold and Surprise! it was very good cold as well. Medium body, very slightly astringent…enough to add some pucker, not enough to consider it mouthwash

Still on the fence with this one. I’m trying to like it. The leaves (dry and wet) smell better than the liquor itself. This tea is a little on the expensive side to be on the fence. Glad I just bought a sample.

Pissed at the world so I will crawl into a dark corner, have a cup of tea with a nice biscotti.

drank Yunnan Jig by Adagio Teas

Steeped this one for a minute or two less than yesterday, and the smokey flavor didn’t come through as strongly. Gave it a much smoother taste, though I think I liked the smokey flavor a little more.

Hmm. Not sure about this one. Steeps up pretty dark. Not many of the flavors coming through. I’ll have to try more pearls next time.

Finally got more of this. A favorite flavored black tea. Brewing it for 4 minutes with boiling water turns out perfect for my tastes.

i love this tea. it’s dark, rich and smoky, like drinking incense! i did not get beef jerky or any meaty flavor from it, as some have suggested… i think it really is a love it/hate it sort of thing. i like it plain, or with a bit of milk and brown sugar.

light chocolatey flavor, not too rich (not sure if this is good or bad) but overall enjoyable. i think steeping it in the ingenuitea helps as the chips have a chance to melt and mix with all of the water, not seep out of a little strainer/tea ball. good with milk and sugar.

drank Green Chai by Adagio Teas
64 tasting notes

I love this chai. I love chais in general, but this one really hits the spot. The green and the cloves together are a perfect blend. Soymilk, as always, makes it a little thicker and delicious-er.
