I am actually drinking this tea iced right now. I cold brew in 1L bottles using ~4 tsp of loose tea- and just leave it overnight. Turns out perfect every time. I do add a little gunpowder to the blend, because otherwise it is just too minty for me.

On my third steep right now, could have used a little more time in the gaiwan but I was impatient

Not sure how I feel about this one, I think I made my cup a little too strong.

(6g/12oz/3min/175) The ginger isn’t too strong at all – it just adds a hint of flavor that almost covers up the soybean/cooked veggie-like flavor I tend to associate with white teas. Overall a nice mild tea that is enjoyable but I don’t think likable enough that I’ll get more. But if I liked white tea more, I can see how I would like this one more.

Unmistakably blueberries. The leaves look very delicately rolled, and this goes great with my morning cereal of Kashi Autumn Wheat with dried blueberries. I can usually get two steepings, but any more is stretching it.

smooth, floral taste and fragrance. If it weren’t almost perfect already it would be wonderful blended with jasmine.

drank Almond by Adagio Teas

The almond certainly didn’t overpower the tea flavor. I did detect a hint of astringency when I followed the steeping instructions on the package. I generally like my blacks more to the three minute mark than the five. Still nice though.

Nicely full bodied. I got lots of cocoa notes but didn’t detect any spice or fruit. I really loved this tea.

Tastes like a standard black tea. Good, but nothing spectacular.

Pretty good. Used the last of what I had though.

This is one of my “must have” teas – absolutely luxurious spicy flavor, wonderful with milk and honey. A bit overwhelming on its own.

An excellent tea for everyday drinking – good with milk and sugar, or by itself.

A sweet, light, very refreshing tea with a soft fruitiness.

drank Black Dragon Pearls by Adagio Teas

I’m mixed on this tea. It got slightly oversteeped, so the black became a bit bitter and overpowering. It also reminded me of Yunnan Jig, about which I feel similarly.

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.
