drank Dancong Aria by Adagio Teas
562 tasting notes

I made enough of this tea for my roommate and I but then as it was brewing, it definitely started smelling weird and I’m all.. this is not how I remembered this tea when I had it last.
My old rating was an 80, and I recommended this tea. Today, I made it with no changes whatsoever and oh gosh it tastes so bad like no. It deserves like a 5 right now but.. I rated it so high before?? I looked at my other tasting note and I definitely remember writing it. I said it wasn’t as dark and rich as other oolongs that I’ve tried, but whoa nelly, is this tea is riiiichhhh.
Dude I don’t know what’s going on with this tea. I’ll probably finish a couple more sips and then it’ll probably go down the sink because it doesn’t taste the way I remembered

I know! And I definitely didn’t change the way I prepared it at all, but the entire flavour of the tea is completely different to when I first had it. It tastes like a completely different tea which is just… what!?

Dancongs can be kinda temp and time finicky I guess shrug

Tea rating guide:
100-90: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
89-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with Jasmine because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Queen Tea for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk with the exception of chai. I like chai with just a wee dash of milk and a sprinkle of sugar! This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess. I have friends who think I have a problem with tea, but I really don’t. Everything is good in moderation.
I also have a mug buying problem and I’ve got Disney to blame for that. At least all my mugs are being put to good use!

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I’m an avid fandom blogger on tumblr we have some weird way of talking to each other and sometimes I forget that this isn’t tumblr oops
