Striking, malty, heavy tones in a nice accessible way. This is a solid Assam tea – taking the malty thickness you enjoy in PG Tips every day and expanding on it more thoroughly, but never in an over-the-top way. Strong nose and quick finish. It’s nice to have an Assam straight for a change instead of as I usually have it, in a blend. Nice work again, Adagio!

Hello fellow tea nerds!

I’m Canadian and my parents are South African, plus I lived in England and Australia as a kid… so I’m rockin some pretty mad British Empire vibe and thus I’ve been a tea fan for quite some time. I am now totally hooked on loose-leaf. It’s super fun to try a bazillion new kinds of tea and choose the right one for a given moment in a day.

My favourite teas are well balanced, mild, maybe fruity/citrusy or with interesting flavours (eg: silk oolongs, grapefruit green rooibos, jasmine silver needle white tea, melon white tea). I also like a solid malty British or other bold style black teas with some oomph (eg: Yunnan Golden Tips, PG Tips).

Let’s nerd out together about why tea is so friggin’ epic!
