879 Tasting Notes

100

I’ve been putting off trying my pu erh teas for a time when I can sit and relax. The first time I tried this one I could not get it to taste right. This time I steeped it for 1.30 at 212. degrees. Much better :3 It is sweet with a lovely floral note. The sweetness almost reminds me of peach or apple. It still has a soft earthy taste to it. I’m happy I chose this one today. Very relaxing.

I just made a HUGE pitcher of iced tea out of this and it’s amazing! Both strawberry and lemon are present and it’s very refreshing.

Finally finished this one off! Today it made a nice, malty cup. A bit darker than the last one. Has a nice citrus zest to it. Like an orange peel or something . I like it but it’s not my favorite from Adagio. I probably won’t end up ordering this again just because it was nothing special to me and I think Adagio has a few teas that are better.

I completely forgot that I had this tea. I opened the tin and woosh came out a delicious sweet smelling fragrance. I’ve been hoarding this one and it still has a nice amount of flavor to it. The sweet marshmallow is there and blends nicely with the toasty genmaicha. Definitely a winner :)

This is an ok black tea. I’m trying to finish some teas off and only have about a cup left of it. To me it’s pretty basic. Nothing special about it. I can’t really explain it…

Sadly, this one is gone now. I loved this tea. Such a lovely flavor paired with the oolong. The caramel and orange mingle nicely with the oolong base. It will be dearly missed!

I found a good sized sample of this in my sample drawer. I was pretty excited because I love silver needle! It’s sweet and mellow. I wish it had a bit more of that silver needle sweetness to it though. It’s a bit weak but it goes perfectly with my rainy day off :)

You have a dedicated drawer for samples? That’s so awesome!

KallieBoo!

I somehow acquired so many a sample drawer was necessary D: It’s slowly but surely clearing out :3

Who says you can’t have rootbeer floats for breakfast! I think I’d get a tummy ache D: anywho I added a touch of sugar and milk to this one. Didn’t do a whole lot for the flavor like I was hoping.

Thank you to whoever sent me this sample! This is a pleasant oolong. It has a nice earthy base with floral notes. There is something fruity going on with this cup too. It almost reminds me of a dried cherry. It’s sweet but still has that tart bite to it.

I really enjoy all of Teavivre’s teas. Especially the black teas and pu erhs. This one is lovely. Kind of malty and bold but with a sweetness to it. Light hints of cocoa and sweet potato. Mmm :)

They are really good for blacks and pu’s!

Don’t think I’ve tried that one yet. Sounds good though.

I first got into tea about 5 years ago. Recently I’ve been so busy with school I’ve had no time to keep up! But now life has slowed down I can jump back into one of my favorite hobbies :3 My favorites are buttery oolongs and puerhs.
I have two cats (Foofy and Mozzy) and one puppy (Atticus). I love reading, writing, and playing outside.
