Had this for breakfast! Different and delicious! I love watching the pellets spread open into the pretty leaves. The pellets remind me of gunpowder but less balled up.

It tastes a little nutty and sweet to me.

drank Gunpowder by Adagio Teas
3 tasting notes

Didn’t enjoy this the first couple times I drank it, but I think that’s because I steeped it too long. I took my time this cup, timed it for exactly 3 minutes, and it came out delicious!

I did add some honey to it, just a bit though, so there was a little sweetness that balanced out the smokiness of the tea. This tea just moved up in my book.

Footnote: My girlfriend just tried it and said “it tastes like mud” and “it tastes like I licked a cigarette” so apparently it may not be good for everyone :)

drank Chocolate Chai by Adagio Teas

My last bit of this one. Yay for decupboarding! I do wish there was more chocolate in this. When made with creamer and sugar, it ends up being a gently spicy, nicely creamy tea with a hint of chocolate. And for something with chocolate in the name, I want more than just a hint of chocolate. Still, anything made with lots of sugar and creamer is never going to be bad.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec

Holy Crap!
Truly something enticing. Really had that unique and characteristic Darjeeling smell and taste, but with the nuance and beauty of Oolong. I was expecting a mediocre, amateur Oolong, but this really added a new facet to my favorite type of tea.

I’m impressed – astonished even.

Let’s hope the plantations of Darjeeling starting hitting the docks with first-flush Oolongs in the near future.

backlogging this mornings tea. Finished off my Masala Chai sample. I only had 1/2 a teaspoon left, so mixed equal parts Chai and Assam Melody as before. Love it!

Fixed this morning…about 1/2 Masala Chai and 1/2 Assam Melody…nearly perfect. Drinking the resteep now and its delicous. I think the leaves might have one more weak steep in them…they certainly smell good.

backlogging this one from yesterday. I think this one makes it to my short list of “must have on hand”…its really good. If anything, its light on the tea content. I added a pinch of Assam Melody (from Adagio Tea as well) to it to punch up the tea content…VERY good idea, if I do say so myself and all that….

A nice spicy Chai. I drink Chai’s straight..no milk..sometimes a touch of sugar. This Chai was inherently sweet tasting…a by-product of the solid cinnamon presence. Ginger and Clove provided that spicy, tingle-in-the-mouth kick. I could identify cardamon seeds in the mix as well. Good flavor, well balanced.

Creamy and smooth. Coconut is one of the flavors I really like.
