335 Tasting Notes

100

I love the sweetness of this tea: it’s not sugary/candy like sweetness. It’s rather honey, smell of wild flowers kind of sweetness. Uplifts my mood instantly.

I’m sipping Golden curls and having 2 tea cookies. What I like about these cookies the most is that they are small, for me it’s just the right amount. These are classic, old school cookies with butter and other good stuff in them.

drank Darjeeling #22 by Adagio Teas
335 tasting notes

I have a soft spot for Darjeeling tea. It’s smooth, delightful, very little astringency. It’s not overly dark or intense, just very enjoyable.

I have added some new artwork with “I love tea” message here:

If you like it feel free to use it :) Personal use only.
Intended for: printing on a t-shirt, bag, hoodie or anything you like.
Clarification: Keep in mind that on the monitor the size looks huge but when printed it will be much smaller.

drank Casablanca Twist by Adagio Teas
335 tasting notes

Have to admit this one is not my favorite. It’s o.k. , just not my favorite. I can hardly taste anything but the mint. Mint is one of those flavors that just takes over and pretty much “kills” anything else.

Preparation

Had this tea with apple pancakes. All the ingredients for the pancakes came from my local farmers market. This was most excellent combo.

drank Anhui Keemun by Adagio Teas
335 tasting notes
It’s Friday and I feel it. This tea, however, keeps my eyes open and mind alert. I have it as usual: no milk, no sweetener of any kind. I like it just the way it is.

Here’s some tea related artwork I recently created. It’s free for anyone to use.
I have already printed the design on an off-white canvas tote bag.

drank Anhui Keemun by Adagio Teas
335 tasting notes

Sipping my moderately warm cup of Anhui Keemun and trying to relax a bit. The tea is malty/leathery/smokey and complements my French apple tart well. Just launched my website re-design so I feel I deserve a little break http://www.antemeridiemdesign.com/

drank Jasmine Grey by 52teas
335 tasting notes

It is official: tea disappears in our household at an alarming rate. I got a neat little package from 52teas and I’m trying Jasmine Grey right now. It smells like bubble gum or gummy bears … ah the simple pleasures of childhood. The taste is really pleasant: not overly sweet, with some underlying citrus tartness which I really like. Most of the time I drink unflavored teas but I’m not a tea purist so I do enjoy flavors as well and this is definitely enjoyable.
