334 Tasting Notes
This quite mild and and quite smokey, perhaps a bit too much smokiness for my taste. Still pretty enjoyable. When cooling down even more smokiness comes through.

This is somewhat contradictory tea: it’s earthy but light at the same time. It also has a “clean” taste. It’s a perfect after dinner tea. I had vegetables from the farmers market, black beans with herbs and feta and marinated tofu strips and finished it with a cup of tea. That was SO good.
Sadly this was the last cup left. Everybody in my family likes this so it did not last long.
Amazing. Turns out I love this kind of Pu-Erh. It’s not funky or fishy at all. The underlaying flavors I can detect are apple and honey. I had this with a small piece of raw, extra dark chocolate: what a perfect pairing. Will certainly reorder.
I just saw that Adagio teas now has a tumblr and they have posted the new Zodiac Series tins. I worked on the design in December and finally I can see the finished product. So exited!
Wuyi is one of my favorite teas ever. I almost always have at least one variety in my cupboard. This was less dark/toasty than I expected, still very nice. I did detect some herbal (rosemary?) undertone. However, the tea magically transforms when cooling down – all the lovely toasty flavor shines through.
Reordered this. I like it even more that the first time. I think the amount of peppermint is just right. Peppermint is such a strong flavor that it often “kills” all other flavors – all you can taste is just peppermint. Not with this blend: it’s more like a subtle hint which I really like. Very refreshing.
