drank Dragonwell by Adagio Teas
41 tasting notes

The rest of the sample is now officially something I am not interested in. Smells slightly of tobacco (not the can be good smelling pipe kind, the cigarettes in a bar kind) and stale cereal. taste is also stale cereal with an aftertaste of ash…

I don’t know what I’ve done but I’ve tried this three times varying the temperature and amount of tea leaves and just can’t seem to find a way that I like this enough to even consider using the rest of the sample. Based on the reviews below I am wondering if this tea greatly varies based upon the growing conditions from the farm it was harvested from… no idea, but this sample from adagio goes in the I don’t want to buy again pile. Dragonwell may be a good tea, it is either I can’t prepare it properly, the sample was bad, or this tea and me have irreconcilable differences!

Preparation

Bio

A man, not a myth or legend. Inspired equally by Muir and Merlin (hence the exotic spelling of the welsh latter). I’ve been drinking tea for many years now, but got pushed into loose leaf by observing my co-workers and realizing that there might be something more here than just boiling water and a tea bag. I’m glad they gave me a push… It has been fun so far!
