drank Coconut by Adagio Teas
119 tasting notes

Thank you Michelle for sending me this tea along with your host of others!

Please excuse me but I will have yet another set of backlogs, though some are more recent than others. This particular one is from Sunday. It’s been very stressful as AP Exams as well as the All State Music Festival for Vermont are next week and I’m stressin’! I haven’t had a lot of time to sit and review stuff but I do have a little time now so I’m going to catch up!

I actually really like this one. I have to be suuuuper careful because it can get really astringent and unpleasant really easily, but if you get it right this one is yummy. I generally lower the temp when I brew Adagio’s blacks because I find they are very finicky. It has a nice black tea flavor that really elevates the coconut, and the tea isn’t fighting the flavor-they work together! It’s really yummy and the coconut flavor is natural and doesn’t taste like fake shredded coconut, so that’s good! Thanks again Michelle!

In other news, I WAS ACCEPTED INTO COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY’S SUMMER PRECOLLEGE PROGRAM IN NYC!!!!! I’m suuuuuuuuper happy, even though it’s looking doubtful of whether I can go or not due to financial reasons, I am super excited that I was accepted!

Thanks! I really hope it works out too because I would love to go and it would help strengthen my actual college application. I emailed my guidance counselor about scholarships and grants because Columbia doesn’t offer financial aid for summer programs :(

Missy

Congratulations on your acceptance!!!!

Niiiice! I hope it works out that you can go, but I love your attitude if it does not work out. An attitude like that will probably be more valuable in the long run than this summer program….

Ian

Bio

Hello!

I’m Ian and I’m a 15 year old student who lives in Vermont. I started (heavily) drinking tea in Late 2010 and have been obsessed ever since!

I tend to drink more black and herbal teas, though I do enjoy oolong, green, and white, and I’m exploring other facets of the tea world (I’m still trying with pu-erh!)

I tend to lean towards sweeter and fruity flavors in my teas, and I’m not a big fan of smoky flavored teas, or anything that’s VERY bold.

I also enjoy a cup of coffee every once and a while, though it does mess with my stomach sometimes so I don’t drink it as often as I drink tea.

In addition to tea drinking, I’m also really interested in:
Classical music (I’ve been playing clarinet for 5 years now and it’s my favorite thing to do), independent arts/music, education on environmental sustainability, reading, Fair Trade and safe-trade practices, Cognitive science, art history, and a lot more.

I’m open to swaps, but I don’t have a very wide collection. Regardless, if I review a tea and you would like a sample, feel free to message me and we can work something out! If you would like to just try something without a swap, feel free to ask too! I know that I personally don’t have a lot of teas to swap and if you’re in the same position as me just feel free to ask for a sample and I’ll send you some, no strings attached!

I run a blog on TeaTrade which you can find here: http://serendipitea.teatra.de/. The goal of my blog is to better connect tea with the arts and go beyond just the taste aspect of tea. Enjoy!
