drank Honeybush Chocolate by Adagio Teas
98 tasting notes

So my parents were visiting me this weekend and as usual we ended up at Adagio to pick my mother up some more tea and to get me a new tea pot (my old one was breaking and after look around and getting suggestions I decided to go with the VarieTEA.). Since I am a regular at the store, which it still weirds me out that all the employees know me by name and things about me from my facebook, they gave us several samples sizes to take home for free.

Now, that is how I aquired this and I am kind of glad that I didn’t have to pay for it. I have never had Honeybush before, only Rooibus which causes me to have weird nightmares and other things so I was kind of excited to try Honeybush and see if it would be different. Happily it was different and didn’t cause me any problems. I really like the under taste to the honeybush more then Rooibus, though I did not like the Chocolate taste. The Chocolate tasted way too fake and phoned in, which really kind of ruined the tea for me. I will probably try another Honeybush, since I seem to like it somewhat its just that this “chocolate” part is not doing anything for me.

Bio

Well, to start, my name is Matt. I got into loose leaf tea my sophomore year in college. I was drinking some lipton tea in my room when I started thinking to myself that there has to be something more then just bagged tea. So I decided to do a web search and found out about loose leaf (you would think that this would have been an obvious thing but surprisingly it was not). I stumbled across a local tea cafe called Argo tea and decided to try it out. Long story short, I fell in love. From this one store I have started to branch out to all different types of tea from several different stores.

My favorit tea is very hard to choose since I like pretty much everything there is that I have tried. I have recently started getting into pu’erh teas, which is getting to be interesting. I am always looking for new a greater tastes when it comes to tea and am trying to better express my experiences with tea.

Aside from tea I am an actor in the Chicago area. I do mostly theatre and various film projects through out the Midwest. I recently started doing Voiceover work, which I have to say is very fun and easy going.

My number ratings are more random then anything. Since I have no idea half the time when I move the slider on the happy face meter what number will be showing up.
