This was the tea that began my love of Yunnans. I love the earthy, peppery flavor of this, though that’s not a flavor profile I typically care for. I really want to try their Yunnan Jig to see the differences between them.

I found this to be immensely, overwhelmingly cocoa-y, to the point where it was more reminiscent of burnt hot chocolate than tea. Definitely prefer the Jig.

And another tea is gone (though I’ll do multiple steeps so it’s still around for a little bit longer). Earthy but sweet and fruity, this is lighter than a lot of the Chinese blacks I tend to favor but the smooth sweetness and lighter body make it a nice, relaxing tea.

Auggy = tea machine today! I loves it.

Hehe! I am! I feel like I’m been very productive – but I’ve had to keep to smaller cups so I don’t get super-buzzed like yesterday!

I’m attempting simultaneously to be productive and relax today. The relaxation part is where this tea comes in. A smooth, comforting tea that is dark and strongly flavored, but not stout – perfect for relaxing. But not too sure about how it’ll mesh with the productivity portion of today’s program.

A nice smooth cup, the green smooths over the chai spices, while the spice add new depth to the green. A solid cup :)

Yet again drinking the bagged version of an Adagio tea, although I have taken the leaves out and put them in my glass pot. I used 1 bags worth of leaves, 160ml water, 80 degrees C, 1.5 mins. I’m starting to like this tea the more times I brew it, it’s certainly not the highest grade of Long Jing, and perhaps a tiny bit over-fired, but still some very plesant roasty, citursy notes.

Another tin gone! Woohoo! I’ll be getting a bunch of samples in swaps this week (thanks, everyone!), but I haven’t made a tea purchase since mid-December, which is a big deal for me. This is a nice, soothing tea for Sunday night.

I have this in a huge tin which will need refilling soon believe or not. I drink it all the time and absolutely love it!

Wanted to compare this to the Casablanca Twist I had earlier today, and there’s really not a huge difference. The only thing that’s lacking is that slight earthy flavor from the Darjeeling in Casablanca Twist. I think I prefer this.

Yum. Refreshing and minty.

I wish they had more mints like orange mint and chocolate mint!

All I want lately is minty tea.

drank White Peony by Adagio Teas
355 tasting notes

This is a sweet, yummy white tea with very little grassiness. I’m not really feeling the comparisons to Silver Needle; Silver Needle to me has a much more buttery, round taste, and is a lot smoother. Still, I like this, though I’m not huge on white tea (except for SN, of course).

I want to start drinking more white tea for spring and summer. This is a nice, gentle sweet one.

If you like Blueberries – Try their White Blueberry, too!

drank Keemun Rhapsody by Adagio Teas
911 tasting notes

This is leftover from Saturday, I think. Steeps 3 and 4 iced. I usually try to drink stuff the day after I brew it when iced, so this one is a bit older. Oh well. If I die in the next hour, we’ll know why.

This tea has no sugar but it tastes like sweet tea. Not like southern sweet tea – it isn’t that sweet – but what non-southerns make their sweet tea taste like. Then there is there slightest smoky taste on the tail. It’s really good. Makes me even sadder that this tea is gone.

ETA – As it warms up, the smoky tastes becomes stronger though the tea still tastes sweet and smooth.

I needed to either take a nap or have tea. I selected tea. I normally have Keemun at work which is where I keep my tin of Rishi so I was really expecting the same taste when I took my first sip. But then I remembered why I love this one so much. Smooth, flavorful, so yummy. Just perfect.

This is the bagged version which I keep at my department for when I’m supposed to be working….certainly the most enjoyable black tea that I have ever had out of a bag.

Hmmm, I’m almost out of this. Seems I drink it a lot

Needed a good ole flavored tea I could trust today. Nothing that I had to think too hard to enjoy since I am lacking brain activity today. I have decided in my next life I will not work with young human creatures for the sole reason that they seem to carry nasty germs around. And I always catch them. (As a side note, I do love my middle schoolers. I really do.)

So to comfort my poor immune system, I am consuming a large amount of strawberry tea and peanut butter cookies. The two of them actually compliment each other very well.

Got distracted helping a student and way oversteeped this. Nothing makes me more sad than bitter tea.

Trying to figure out why this came out bitter today. Used boiling water and steeped for 3 minutes like I always do. I’m thinking it has something to do with my cranky Monday mood.

Tried this at 3 minutes instead of 4 and I think I like it better that way!
