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.

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

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.

A good, if not distinguished, sencha. Definitely worth a try. Go easy on the temp and time, and it will turn out right.

Great! This has been my go-to tea for a few years, although I’ve since moved on to sencha.

Gross, gross, gross. I was stoked that Adagio gave me a free sample of this stuff in my 1st order. I would have been super pissy if I paid for this drink. Overly flowerly, horrible aftertaste…just yuck.

I’m running low on everything!!! Luckily, I’ll have a brand new box of goodness from Adagio as soon as I get home. Yea! New teas and new posts to follow.

Does anyone know of an ANTI-rain dance? I’m about tired of driving to and from work in the rain. And my dog can’t go out and play. Wanna see a 150 pound Great Dane that is scared of the rain?…come to my crib. At least this cuppa kept me nice and warm and snuggly as I pretend to work. I’m on my second cup. Bravo Sagittarius tea!

I can’t be certain, but I think it may involve any or all of the following: a wooden spoon, wearing your pajamas inside-out, and Bohemian Rhapsody.

Well, and drinking tea. But that’s my remedy to just about everything.

I’m running low on everything too!!! STILL looking for my package…ek!

If you find that anti-rain dance, let me know. It’s rained so much here this summer, even my cactus plants have mushrooms growing in them. And don’t even ask about being trapped in the house with two stir-crazy beagles.

I like the Cancer tea from the Zodiac series – it sounds like this one is worth trying, too.

The cream flavor is really coming through in this cup…pretty neat considering all I used was a little splenda.

As a Roobios junkie, I just knew I would LOVE this tea. Wrong. This blend tastes nothing of Roobios and is super overpowering with the cinnamon. Maybe it would be better iced or mixed into a cider of sorts…I don’t know. Not a fan.

Another Rooibos morning. This tea is great in any ratio…I used a heaping spoonful today it is just great. This Rooibos has never tasted too strong…only richer. Off to get another cup.

Still in love with this tea. I used half a package of Splenda. Nothing beats the plain ole Roobios…all of the flavors I’ve tried are pretty gross.

The first sip I did not love but after a full cup, I quickly made another. Now, I’m totally hooked and drink it all the time. Roobios has a rich, earthy and woody flavor. Drink a cup while reading The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series and you’ll enjoy it all the more.

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.
