I’ve been saving the last 2-3 cups worth of this tea for MONTHS because I like it so much I don’t want to run out. I know, it’s silly. This morning, my partner said, “Tea wants to be drank. Give tea what it wants.” So I did.
This tea is just awesome. I’m amused by the “7% solution” jokes because it certainly FEELS like I’m jacked up way more than your average black tea blend should allow. Given that I’m a big fan of all 3 teas in this blend and like my caffeine kick, I suppose it’s no surprise that this knocks my socks off.
This was one of the first teas I bought from Adagio in my attempt to wean off coffee, and it remains probably the best coffee substitute tea I’ve tried. It gives you a nice smoky hefty wallop that doesn’t make you yearn for coffee’s earthiness, and it’s so delicious it reminds you of all the tremendous variety that tea can offer instead of coffee’s more narrow palette.
