drank Mambo by Adagio Teas
1720 tasting notes

Official product description references smoky highlights, which I have yet to really get, and I’m about halfway through the package.

That said, it’s very rich with lots of cocoa character. Very stick-to-your-ribbity. Having it with half and half this morning to bolster myself for some manual labor—cleaning and saying an official goodbye to Shabby House. Not much to look it, but it was our port after a storm, and I will remember it fondly. (A little piece of it came with us — the front porch rocking chair is now refinished and in our living room.)

I’ve been a bit afraid of this, because of the smokiness. But if it’s more cocoa than smoky… maybe I’ll give it a whirl!

Also, glad to see you’re moving back home. :)

Thanks. Leaving Shabby didn’t make me cry—just grateful to see that particular chapter closed. Next challenge: making adequate tea storage room at New House!

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
