286 Tasting Notes
Courtney sent me enough for a cup of this, and I actually quite enjoyed it. It’s not as rhubarb-y or as creamy as the name would imply, but I still thought it was a nice, subtle tea. I enjoyed the tartness that I did get from the rhubarb.
I probably wouldn’t ever order it, but I’m so glad I got a taste!
I don’t think I care for Adagio’s black base.
I got a sample of this one from akgrowngirl, because I was somewhat curious to try it out. I also have limited options when it comes to Adagio, since their shipping to Canada is ridiculous. So it’s fun to sample it when I can.
Anyway, I preferred my second steep of this, when I added a bit of coconut palm sugar and a sprinkling of peppermint.
I’ve been drinking comfort teas a lot this past week, and this has become one of them. It’s so sweet but refreshing and light all at the same time. Such a unique tea, I love these mint / marshmallow root blends from 52teas. I think I will go have some more, because it resteeps beautifully.
TastyBrew sent me a super cute little sample of this one with our swap, included as a surprise for me. Thank you so much!
It tastes very bread-y, in a way that reminds me of Fat Tire beer. There is also a lovely blend of cinnamon and nuts. It definitely feels like I’m eating a delicious pastry, it’s so bizarre that it’s actually tea and I’m really not eating anything unhealthy.
I have enough to try this one again, but I am definitely going to resteep these leaves and see what it’s like the second time around.
I’ve been super busy and also kind of depressed and avoiding being on my computer in general, because I’ve been actively trying to not spend time doing nothing.
But… I have missed logging my teas and chatting on Steepster, so I’m going to try to ignore my shitty feelings and focus on things that make me happy. Like tea! And Guayusa. Especially mixed with a bit of Santa’s Secret. Still, one of my favorite combinations. Yum.
