drank Cream by Adagio Teas

Not horrible but not great. Doesn’t really taste much like the cream it is supposed to though. Probably will not buy again, though I will try to mix what I have with other flavors.

drank Chocolate by Adagio Teas

In the first steeping it had quite an intense astringency, though it did have a nice bitter chocolate after taste. The second steeping was much nicer though as a lot of the astringency was taken out in the first brewing and the chocolate taste remained. The after taste was similar to having just eaten a chocolate bar.

drank Mango Mate by Adagio Teas

Not terrible for a Mate tea but not great either. The taste of Mango is rather muted and really only kicks in as an after taste which isn’t wholly bad but not really my thing. The Mate tasted very wheaty in itself but not to the point where it was unpleasant.

Got in store prepared by the General Manager.

Tasted very leafy and pretty fresh, similar to fresh spinach. The only problem was that I don’t believe enough tea was used in the preparation as their was very little flavor, though I like my tea strong so who knows.

Yeah this should be more toasty and honey than spinachy.

Got this as a .5 oz sample in store. There is a lemony taste that isn’t over powering and it nicely compliments the fresh grassy taste of the tea leaves. It leaves a nice refreshing taste in your mouth and tastes great even after a few steeping’s.

Profile

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.
