drank Ripe For Romance by Adagio Teas
180 tasting notes

It’s not you, it’s me…
I’m removing my rating for this tea because, as it turns out, I just don’t like raspberry chocolate teas. I know, I’m as shocked as you are. But I’ve tried 2 now, and even though I can certainly appreciate that they (this one included) were well blended, I just wasn’t crazy about either of them. This is a good tea. It’s just not a good tea for me.

That’s why I couldn’t rate honeybush. It wouldn’t be fair because the highest I could give would be a zero, even for the world’s best honeybush. The honeybush to end all honeybush.

I’m eager to try honeybush, but have been hesitant to place an order because I’ve heard a lot of people feel the same way about it that you do. My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to NY next week and I’m hoping to stop at DavidsTea while we’re there so I can try a cup of it in the store. That way, even if I hate it, I won’t have wasted money on a bulk order.

That’s a good idea. I just got a 2 dolla sample from Adagio and found it dreadful, but I also dislike rooibos. Have fun in NYC!

Lindsey

Thanks! I like rooibos, so I’m optimistic.

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
