This was a free sample with my order, based on my birthday. I accidentally over-steeped this twice. Not good. When steeped for less time it resembles the pear white tea I’ve tried. Some agave nectar brought out the sweet fruit flavor.

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.

A coworker had some of this and I just had to give it a try… it’s great! So far all the pu-erh’s I’ve tasted have been dark, rich and very smooth. I ordered some of this tea along with several other teas from Adagio, this past week and they are on the way…

When I first got this, I was a really big fan. Over time, I’ve become less and less interested in it. It’s good for a no caffeine jasmine option, but I’ll be ready to switch back to regular jasmine tea once I’m back in regular tea drinking.

However, I do like it more than most rooibos!

Rooibos and jasmine just don’t seem destined to go together—-I like rooibos, but it’s more of a roasty, hearty taste that’s good with vanilla and chocolate and stout flavorings, not something delicate like jasmine.

What an interesting idea, to add jasmine to rooibos.

This is the only large tin of tea I have from Adagio. Everything else I have is sample size. I ordered it when I was just starting out with this baby thing and looking for a way to maintain my tea habit without caffeine.

This one was a winner for me because it was so similar to green jasmine. The jasmine really stands out! So I steep it a lot like a green tea… lower water temperature, less time, and it really is quite jasminesque. I love it!

Definitely sounds worth a try, I haven’t tried much flavoured rooibos but that sounds interesting

And I love how inexpensive the samples are at Adagio, too! It means I’ve tried lots of flavored ones… some have been much better than others. :)

Just made a big pot of this, sweetened with agave nectar. A perfect way to spend this rainy Saturday.

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.

I’ve been experimenting with steeping times for this tea. A 2-3 minute steep is more like a green jasmine tea than a rooibos. A 5-10 minute steep is more of a rooibos with a hint of jasmine. Both good, but different.

I’m not a huge fan of rooibos tea, but I do love a good green jasmine. This tea is a lot more like green jasmine than red, and I’m a big fan of that!

This tea has everything I love: Soothing chamomile, refreshing mint, and satisfying rooibos. The flavors kind of dance around like there is a party in my mouth, but no one flavor really over powers the others. It is well balanced and unlike anything I’ve tasted in a tea.

I’ve been eager to try this based purely on teaequalsbliss’s obsession with it. This is a VERY interesting tea.

I finished the evening tea with a pot of this, and a little rooibos thrown in for good measure. It’s a good, hot drink; not quite as satisfying as a black or green tea, but a good option for the evening hours.

…and because I didn’t get enough peppermint today, I made a pot and shared some with my husband.
