Recent Tasting Notes
Spent the morning and a good chunk of the afternoon writing hard in a room with no windows…emerged hoping for a shot of real light (I am convinced that I run on solar batteries), and discovered….blecccccch. Iron gray skies. So, to soothe my sagging psyche, I made myself a sunny little cuppa, left it all five minutes as prescribed on tin. Nice, except folding laundry and drinking it simultaneously sorta sucked the medicinal value out of it.
Well this was the last of the sample tin I got with my first Adagio order. It’s a decent flavoured tea but I don’t think I’d buy a whole 4oz canister of it. It’s a shame that custom blends like the Zodiac series don’t come in sample tins. I think I’d be more interested in trying them if I didn’t have to commit to a big thing of tea I might not like.
Another tea I’m almost out of – a good thing I suppose, because my tea cupboard is full to overflowing. I’m trying drink up the older stuff first before I start on some of my newer teas like the order I got from SpecialTeas or my Andrew & Durnham Series 1 set.
Was steeping this and another tea for my boyfriend and I accidently added honey to this tea instead of his. I don’t think I added much though since this isn’t tasting much sweeter than usual. The chamomile really is the dominent flavour in this tea with its naturally sweet, semi-creamy apple/pineapple flavour.
This tastes quite sweet to me tonight for some reason. This is another tea that would probably be delicious iced – in fact I might do just that with the second steeping.
And Cynthia is right, this tea is out of stock and I’m more than half-finished the sample tin I got with my order. is a sad panda :(
My first loose leaf oolong and it’s better than expected! The dried tea is very earthy and musky. However, it came out tasting a lot lighter and smoother than I would have guessed. The flavors are earthy, woody and a bit grassy. If you’re not too familiar with oolongs (like me), you should give this a try. I enjoyed it.
Using up the last of my sample of this tea. This time I used about twice the number of leaves, because I am discovering that I am too stingy with leaves in general when brewing. I also steeped it just a little less. Gorgeous, dark, fragrant, fresh tasting tea. I think I am discovering a preference for indian teas.
