And this is the last cup of this sample.

I’m working on clearing my samples as fast as I can… it’s a major project!!

I’m starting to think I wouldn’t have any tea left if I drank all my samples! : )

I needed a strong cup of something to start the day, and this hit the spot!

I only have this tea because Adagio said you’d get 4 oz with an order. I made an order, and was surprised by the fun holiday-themed tin in came in. If only I liked the tea as much!

I’ve tried it straight, with sweetener, and with sugar and soymilk. I like it more the less stuff I add to it. It’s not very pumpkiny and it’s not very pumpkin pie spicy. It reminds me of vegan alternatives to regular foods. If you go in thinking it should taste like the original, you’ll be disappointed. If you go in thinking it’s something new, you might find something in it you like. When I drink this not expecting pumpkin spice, it’s okay. And that will get me through the tin.

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
