drank Sweet Potato Pie by Adagio Teas
267 tasting notes

I am inclined to refrain from giving this one a numerical rating, as it tastes like exactly what it promises to- sweet potato pie. I can really taste the sweet potatoes in it, and even the marshmallow. But it turns out this is too sweet for me (don’t laugh, it was a kind donation by silvermage). I don’t even put sugar or any sweetener in my tea, so there’s that to take into account- if you generally sweeten your black tea, you might be in for a treat here.

Actually, I have to say that this is one of the Adagio blends that best delivers on its description, of those I’ve tried. I’m going to keep at it and see if I can develop a taste for it, as I don’t have much tea with me here in Japanese-immersion-camp land.

I didn’t get the sweetness… maybe the starchy mouthfeel covered it.

Kristin

Well… you know who likes sweet tea??? :)

Lisbet

Ha, Kristin, If I had any tea to spare here in J-camp land, it’d be yours in a heartbeat. As it is, it’s one of my last lifelines to tea ;) I’ve been drinking it like a fiend.
My electric kettle broke today though :<

Cofftea

No matcha or other tea to be found in camp? Sad day! That’s practically a sin.

Kristin

@Liz – Let me know if you want me to send you some stuff.

Lisbet

Oooh I would not say no to that. And anything goes- I am drinking essentially all types of tea these days :> Do you have my VT address?

Kristin

Nope. Send me your VT address via Facebook PM or Steepster message.
