Good taste, but nasty aftertaste. I’m gonna have to make another cup to make sure I didn’t oversteep.

Finally remembered to bring in some tea to the office and I’m starting the week on some Poe pu-erh. This is a very tasty pu-erh.
Enjoy.

Tried to replicate the sitar experience from earlier this morning… just clicking noises for a few seconds. Next up: vanilla again to see if I can replicate. The water was probably a slightly different temperature (hotter) this time, so that might be a factor, too.

This smells sourly smoky. I was a little afraid to drink it. But while it tastes a bit smoky, it isn’t near as strong as the smell. I did add sugar and I think that helped the bitter smoky become just normal smoky. As it cools a bit the mint taste comes out. Not ever going to be a favorite, but not the punishment I was expecting based on the smell.

Honest to goodness this tea sang to me! I made a cup in my office this morning, and while it was quite, I heard something that sounded like an Indian sitar. I moved closer to the tea, and though still faint, I heard it more loudly! I moved the tea to another room, and still heard it there. I verified with a coworker, and still the sitar. After more experimentation, we verified that it was the mug, not the tea bag. After a few minutes, the song went away.

So, next up, another type of rooibos in the same mug, the same rooibos in another mug, and other combinations to see if I can replicate the music.

What a strange, but fun, start to the work week. Thanks to this Rooibos Vanilla tea!

My very favorite by far. I highly recommend steeping for 7-8 min at only 160 degrees as apposed to higher temps. Also good 2 to 3 steeps but I increase the steeping time by 4 min each additional steep.

A smokey darker green tea. Much hardier than your average Green tea but also much bolder.

I drink this one a lot! I love the citrus tones in this one. It might be strong for some, but I like it. Steeped around 3 minutes, it doesn’t taste bitter to me. I added a dab of honey and it has made my night! :)

The strawberry is a bit overpowering. I can taste a little of the green tea in it but barely a hint. I want to taste more of the green and have it be less of a strawberry tea that it is. I want the whole tea to taste like the aftertaste does, which is a nice light strawberry-flavored, instead of the tart taste of just strawberries, which is how everything but the aftertaste tastes.

This tea has a fairly sweet / floral flavor. It is nice when I’m not in the mood for a really “green” flavor. I like it, but it isn’t an everyday tea for me.

I’m trying the new batch that just came in from Adagio. Love the smoky flavor. I always inadvertently brew it a little strong- since it is so compact, I need to go with a scant 1 tsp per 8 oz.

Cofftea

rather than a scant tsp per 8oz try 2.25 grams per 6oz.

I keep trying Earl Grey, only to realize that I just don’t like it and probably never will.

Tastes like a cup of grass clippings to me. Not a fan.
