231 Tasting Notes

I thought this tea was kind of boring tasting. Then I realized I was brewing in 5s increments instead of 10s. Whoops!

Love this tea! Nice and floral and sweet. I think I steeped it about 6 times.

I was so tempted by their sale! But, I have a rediculously amount of tea in the house right now.

Lazy tea time. Got a big ole glass mug, filled them with fresh mint leaves, squeezed in a little honey and poured on boiling water. The leaves look so pretty in my mug and they stay right on the bottom where they belong. So easy! Some people call this “grandpa style.”


grandpa style was coined by MarshalN

Ohhh I was wondering what grandpa style meant. Does it just mean you leave the leaves in the cup the whole time you’re drinking?


big mug, some leaves, boiling water, never let water level below half, ideally 2/3


Yup Exactly. You leave the leaves in the cup and top off with hot water as you drink.

I never tried it that way. I never even knew about it. I’ve tried using my mint and never felt I was doing it right since I never got much of anything out of it. How much mint do you put in the cup?


I’ll take a picture next time, but I use a LOT of leaves. But that’s just because I like to reuse them like 8 times. If I wanted one cup I’d use less. The trick to getting the flavor out is crushing the leaves in your hands to release the essential oils.

New 3 oz bag from my Adagio order! I’ve been scraping out the bottom of this tea for what feels like forever and was completely out of it for like a WHOLE WEEK. Never again my love. Never again <3

Flavors: Orange, Peach


Wow, I’ll have get a sample of this next time I order from Adagio. You make it sound so good! And I love peaches, too.


How do you prepare this tea?! I have some but it tasted a bit watery to me… Teach me your ways, please!:P


I use more than they recommend. Like for a 16 ounce mug I use 16 ounce mug I’ll probably use a heaping tablespoon. For one cup, two teaspoons instead of one! This is probably why I run out so quickly, but it’s totally worth it!


Well, I’m definitely going to have to try this!^.^ I’d rather have fewer delicious cups of tea than many ehh cups:P Thank you!


no prob!

Back to back tie guan yins. I just tried Yezi tea’s master grade TGY and followed it with this one to compare. I didn’t expect it to be quite as good as Yezi’s since this one is not “master grade” but it was still disappointing to have such a lack of flavor. The wonderful floral and perfumey notes that the other tea had were lacking here. You could kind of taste them as an aftertaste, as if this was just old tea that’s lost most of it’s flavor. I was able to get more flavor in the later infusions with the increased steeping times, so maybe timing is the only issue here. Luckly Adagio’s sample for this tea is generously sized, so I should be able to try it out at least two more times.
