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!

drank White Peony by Adagio Teas

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.

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!

Finally got more of this. A favorite flavored black tea. Brewing it for 4 minutes with boiling water turns out perfect for my tastes.

A big mug of this to start my Monday morning. I’m not too keen on black teas but I can tolerate this one because of the strawberry flavoring. Now that I think of it, most of the black teas I do drink have some flavor to them. I taste the strawberry more in the aftertaste which is fine. I let it steep for 5 minutes when I normally do 4, so it is slightly stronger than I like.

Wonderful scent with a light and refreshing taste. Had myself a whole pot of it to relax with this evening before it is back to work in the morning.

drank Peppermint by Adagio Teas
14 tasting notes

This is one of those teas great to mix with many other teas. I also tried it with being mixed and it is wonderful. It is very forgiving when oversteeped. I accidentally steeped it over 7 minutes and it was still great. I love this to end the day.

One of my go to greens for everyday drinking. I tend to mix some peppermint or spearmint with it as well.

Cofftea

2.25g of gunpowder to 1.25g of peppermint, spearmint, or equal parts both to 6oz water.
