Love this tea. Coconut and vanilla is a perfect combination w the vanilla sweetening the coconut. No need for sugar w this tea. And oddly it can be steeped twice w/full flavor each time.

mmm…this one I’ve gotta try!

How is that odd?

With some flavored teas, the flavoring is much weaker on a second steep; artificial flavors often wash off on the first steep. I’ve found Adagio particularly bad on this score, and TeaFrog unusually good.

I haven’t had many flavored teas that I’ve bothered to try re-steeping, but that’s interesting. And definitely makes sense.

Cofftea

Teabird- I haven’t found that… and until recently my white tea experience was limited to Adagio. Could steeping parameters affect that? I use a shorter steep w/ lower temp and a lot of leaf.

I was thinking more of Adagio’s flavored black teas, which I’ve found no good for a second steep. The flavoring did seem to last better on the whites, and yes, steeping parameters probably have something to do with that.

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
