drank White Cucumber by Adagio Teas
122 tasting notes

I’m really not getting cucumber out of this.
I mean, I taste cinnamon, and something vaguely vegetal. But I tend to associate a sort of watery crisp freshness to cucumbers, and I don’t get that same feeling from the tea.

The flavor is weak; maybe I didn’t use enough leaves. I’ll have to mess around with it some more.

I use a LOT of leaf w/ my teas. If you have a scale, try 2.25g/6oz water- otherwise just measure a TB per 6oz water. Water temp 140-160 degrees Steeped 1-3min. I still laugh every time I see cinnamon. Then again Ricky gets nail polish out of their cocomint green. Very good hot… ABSOLUTELY AMAZING cold. =D

Oops. That was supposed to be “w/ my white teas”.

Ha ha, I must have put nearly a quarter of the sample tin into my pot, so I thought that would be enough.
