I loved this tea and quickly ran out. Apparently, some people had the same idea because I couldn’t order any more from Adagio for quite some time. Looks like I’ll have to refresh my stash!

drank Genmai Cha by Adagio Teas

I don’t get it. I know its popular, but it is very difficult for me to drink. Roasted rice just isn’t my thing, I guess.

If you really like Matcha then you need to try Ryokucha (http://shop.samovarlife.com/Ryokucha_Organic_Green_Tea_Japanese_Genmaicha_p/0202ryo.htm) It’s Genmai Cha coated in Matcha powder. I enjoy it way more than Genmai Cha by itself. I think the Matcha kills the popcorn taste for me.

Not a fan of Genmai Cha. One of the first teas I ever tasted and I’ve never tasted it since. We’ll see. I might just trust your taste enough to give it a shot.

We called it “Rice Krispie” tea at our house.

Cofftea

I’ll take it off your hands:)

Pretty much a mellower masala chai. Very rich though. Might be a little too rich for me this morning. But good. Brewed it “normally” today and can’t help but wonder how it would be if I made it like I normally do chai. Might be too sweet.

Good flavor and not too over powering.

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
911 tasting notes

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.

Used up the rest of my Earl Grey Supreme and made up the difference with Viennese Earl Grey. Very intense in the first cup this morning, yet surprisingly smooth. Working a resteep now, 8 hours later and its still Earl Grey, still smooth, and still good.

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

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.
