drank Pouchong by Adagio Teas
148 tasting notes

Decided to give this another try tonight. I feel like it smells really promising, a lot of strong floral notes wafting up from the cup. The flavor just doesn’t stand out.
I was also thinking today that I’d rather hand out a “grade” for a tea than a set number; so this would get a C+. The tea also starts going bitter as it gets cold.

Bio

I mostly drink straight tea, and some of my favorites are green teas and oolongs. I almost always have some sencha and tieguanyin in my tea cupboard (and if I run out, awesome, an excuse to buy tea). I do like some flavored teas, but can’t stand really sugary stuff so if it’s very sweet I probably won’t like it. I can’t drink milk so all my reviews are of tea without milk and sugar!
I’ve been getting into puerh the last few months.

Outside of Steepster I’m an English Lit major, and will FINALLY be graduating after the Fall 2013 semester. After that I plan on applying for graduate school to obtain a Master’s in Library Science. Currently I work as a student assistant in the Archives and Special Collections department of my school’s library.
I also like reading (of course) and playing video games when I have time for them.

I’m happy to send samples to anyone in the US or Canada. Just ask. :)
