Single cup, 1 Splenda, second brew.

An amazing cup of tea! I brewed it first for a friend, then took the second brew for myself. I bought the sampler, and already want to order a pound.

This tastes like fruit loops and does a fantastic job of covering up the b-grade Long Jing they used as a base. If that’s what you’re looking for, hit it up.

Not too minty, a great derivative of moroccan mint with the substitution of darjeeling. Great cup to go along with an episode of LOST.

drank Cinnamon by Adagio Teas
1317 tasting notes

Oh yes, this is very definitely cinnamon. The leaves absolutely reek of cinnamon far overpowering any particular scent of tea. After steeping it more or less the same story. I can pick up a hint of tea in the scent but mostly it’s just cinnamon. For some reason I’m also getting a strong note of honey.
It doesn’t taste as overly cinnamon-y as it smells, thankfully. There actually seems to be very little cinnamon in the flavour or perhaps it’s because the strong aroma has made me expect more.
I’m undecided about whether or not I like it. I dislike the scent, but it’s drinkable. It would have been more suitable around christmas time though. Buying more of this is unlikely.

An excellent, rich Oolong. Tasty without being overpowering.

honeybush – apricot – roobios: three very sweet flavors had me worried that this tea might be too sweet, but once steeped, its a perfect combination, and a surprisingly mild flavor. it has great aroma too. i give it the thumbs up.

Really enjoying this the second time around. Can’t see how I didn’t appreciate more the first time. Extremely smooth with just a hint of spice.

drank Vanilla by Adagio Teas
1317 tasting notes

I got inspired for a vanilla tea just now so I made me a small pot. And then my head wasn’t really in it so I wasted a whole spoonful of this nice vanilla tea but going to put the leaves in the pot and failing to pour out the water that I had used to heat the pot up first. Very ARGH!-worthy when you only have a sample-size tin. I wish I had more of this to mix with. I’ve got a TON of stuff now that I’d like to blend it with, but alas.

Wake up, self. Look alive. Have only just done barely 300 words on NaNoWriMo today. As previously mentioned work was particularly tiring today. I hate meetings, I do. I much prefer to just zombie about in the lab and get the daily specimens out of the way.

I need to get some more words down, just half an hour more of writing would be acceptable.

So we took a black one because blacks always feel like they have more caffeine in them (even if they don’t really) and I went for this one, because I felt like something flavoured. One of my extravagant Adagio teas. I wish I could afford to shop there regularly. (I’ve seen a cucumber(!!!) thing among others that I’m absolutely desperate to try!)

It’s sweet without actually being sweet-sweet. It sort of tastes like vanilla smells instead of tasting OF vanilla. Hard to explain, but I’ve found that I rather like it a lot.

I’m still carrying around some tentative chai-inspiration from the chai-cino experiment of the other day, so I’ve tried a cup with a bit of milk. Not a lot, just exactly enough to cover the bottom of the cup (mind you, my current cup have a fairly wide bottom (snicker) and it’s not really working. Possibly it should have had a bit more milk, because somehow it’s like the watery-ness of the tea is all the more obvious. I think it’s because of the colour. You expect something with milky viscosity and don’t get it. It’s odd and sort of distracts the mind so you forget to pay attention to the flavour.

So, closing my eyes and taking another sip. Weirdly, this actually does help on the viscosity issue! It’s all in your mind, apparently. I wouldn’t say the milk really brings the best out in the tea here. On the contrary, the milk seems to get a kind of semi-sour sort of note to it. You know like milk that hasn’t actually gone off but has lost the sweetness and has just started to taste of fridge. I have to say that I’m a little disappointed that it doesn’t work with milk. It sounds like something that would have been lovely with a bit of milk.
