drank Golden Spring by Adagio Teas
181 tasting notes

I plowed right through my 3 oz. tin of this. It’s consistently been my morning tea maybe 85% of the days in the past couple months. It has all the characteristics of a solid morning black tea for me: not too light, not too strong either (though there are days when I can’t handle caffeine in the mornings), with just the right amount of natural sweetness. In fact, I think Adagio should change the name of this to ‘Goldilocks’, because it’s juuuust right. It’s definitely something I could see myself drinking every morning for quite some time (though in the interest of coming up with new things to write, I’m going to find another morning black and go with that for a while). In the end, I’m bumping my rating up a few points from when I first logged it, mainly because of its eminent dependability and drinkability.

On a side note, the Adagio 3oz. tins themselves are great! The stickers peel off easily and you rinse them out and reuse them without much hassle.

Btw, are you steeping yours twice? I was taught to only do blacks one time cuz there’s not enough uumph to do double steeps. But I’ve been plowing through mine every day and know that some do double steep their blacks…if you dont mind, what times are you steeping? I’ve been going 4min, then now 5min 2nd steep- still a bit weak for me but I so LOVE this tea that I’ll drink it anyway.
