drank Chocolate Chai by Adagio Teas
246 tasting notes

Trying to get through some of my older teas before they go bad (especially since I just ordered some holiday samples from Adagio, and another blend).
This isn’t bad, but I don’t think I’d restock it. I get more of a cocoa flavor than chocolate, but I like that. Ginger and cloves, this would be really good in cookie form! I’ll have to make this as a latte.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

drank Peach Oolong by Adagio Teas
246 tasting notes

Alright, so backlogged from this morning. Had to go to work before I write anything (did I mention I got a job! Receptionist at a vet clinic until I can get into a tech program).

This was really lovely. I was worried about the smell because it comes off as a bit strong and artificial. However, once this is brewed the flavor/smell isn’t as strong and blends really well with the oolong. I like the Taiwanese base tea, the peach goes really well with the woody flavors. Also super easy to brew, I did a second steeping as well and there were no problems with steeping it longer.

drank Chance Combinations by Custom

So, you know those custom blends on Adagio? Well I want to make some so I’m testing some stuff out today. I want to make a Dune blend (from the Frank Herbet books, I finished the first one a little white ago).

So I’m testing out teas with some rooibos vanilla chai, a bit of lapsang souchong, and maybe spiced mate. Not sure yet, I need that cinnamon flavor though. I think the lapsang might be overpowering everything though, so I might have to take that out. Hmmm.

I made up two blends, one with mocha nut mate and one with spiced. I actually like the mocha nut more I think… need more taste testing. Maybe side-by-side.

drank Toffee Dream by Zen Tea
246 tasting notes

Tea: 2 tsp
Water: 8 oz
Additives: none

Dry leaf
Lovely toffee scent, beautiful leaves, seems to be a good quality white peony. Lots of big whole leafs and buds. The blue cornflowers add a pretty touch.

Liquor
Lovely clear straw color, smells of toffee, no smell of white tea

Really nice toffee taste, sweet, nutty and rich. I regret drinking this for breakfast, I should have saved it for dessert! As I sip the white base comes through, which is nice I was worried the toffee was going to be overpowering based on the scent. Very very good! I’m a big fan of white tea and I can definitely see having this around. Now I just need to get my stash down a bit so I can justify buying it!
