I was looking for something dark and comforting this morning and this Keemun does the job very nicely. Lots of different woodsy flavors although I fail to find the chocolate.

Wonderful aroma.

drank Love Child by Adagio Teas

This tea has a delicate body with aromas of springtime, and a palate of—oh, who am I kidding? I just wanted to post another tasting note so that I could say “scott_ish is drinking Love Child” on Twitter, again.

Kicking this rating up a little bit. Just a really pleasant tea, if the flavored thing is your thing. It’s flavored, but it’s all subtle. I think it’s probably the chamomile’s influence keeping the fruit and vanilla in check.

Very nice. Vanilla not overwhelming as the dry aroma predicted. The rooibos really makes a mess in the teapot, though.

Steeped 6 minutes at 212°F. Prepared in Adagio IngenuiTEA teapot.

drank Earl Grey Bravo by Adagio Teas
22 tasting notes

I have some of this now and just ordered more, not leaving to chance that I should ever run out. I’m usually unenthusiastic about black teas but Earl Grey is one of my favorite blends of black tea and Adagio seems to have improved on it. Making this one of my all-time favorite teas. It has a dark red-brown liquor with a perfumed aroma and flavor with citrus playing bass.

5-6 balls for two cups of water seems to be the right balance.

Still not strong enough for me. Five pearls for a 14 oz. pot.

Cofftea

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.

I knew there was hazelnut as soon as I opened the tin! I like this combo – I am glad the company accidentally sent me two tins!

This is one of my favorite oolong because of its slight nutty flavor. Unfortunately this will be my last pot for a while since I just finished off the tin.

Haven’t been logging tea because I’ve been having a stressful week with moving back to LA for school, unpacking, doing extra training for my research lab, classes starting up again… BUT I would not have been able to do any of this without my wonderful tea collection. And wuyi ensemble is a wonderful way to wake up.

drank Jasmine #5 by Adagio Teas
6 tasting notes

I love this jasmine! I drink it anytime — day or night. Also excellent for cooking jasmine rice in your home rice cooker; simply steep your tea and add to your cooker as you would water with your rice. Don’t over-steep this tea, however. It gets bitter very easily.

drank Darjeeling #22 by Adagio Teas
6 tasting notes

I don’t drink black teas at all, but I wanted to at least give a darjeeling a shot. I wasn’t disappointed. It’s a very lovely black that doesn’t prove to be very overpowering for my green-and-white-preferred tongue. It’s over-caffeinated for someone of my tolerance — I was shaking after a couple cups! Great with milk and honey.

drank White Blueberry by Adagio Teas
6 tasting notes

I absolutely love this tea. I first sampled a white blueberry at Seattle’s Queen Mary Tea Room and fell instantly in love. Unfortunately, they no longer carry it as they claimed their supplier went down in quality. Adagio’s has continued to be consistent, at least so far as I can tell. An excellent tea where the blueberries are well-balanced with the white tea. Could stand to have a few more blueberries in there, though.

drank Genmai Cha by Adagio Teas
6 tasting notes

Genmaicha is my favorite green tea. I love the strength of this tea, and the smoothness. The fragrance has always reminded me of the ocean for some inexplicable reason. It’s a very clean tea that I drink when I want to feel cleansed.

drank Thai Chai by Adagio Teas

Made this for my friend Helen today. 2.25g/3oz water and then added 3oz milk. No sweetener.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

I don’t really like this tea, but I’m gonna try one thing before dumping these leaves. 2nd infusion, 6min steeped in 3oz water and then added 3oz of a creamer/milk combo. 1TB each spiced rum, vanilla, and white chocolate creamers and the rest (~1oz) milk. Eh. Not to bad I guess considering I don’t like it. The lemongrass gets lost which doesn’t hurt my feelings, I don’t like lemongrass in my chai. And the coconut and white chocolate play nicely together considering I don’t care for either one separately.
