drank Grapefruit Oolong by Adagio Teas
1199 tasting notes

So I didn’t go to bed until nearly 5am because of a Formula 1 race, and then I had a weird dream where you could go to McDonalds and have Adagio tea. Because if you could sit down and have tea, a fast food place is the spot to do it.

I’ve been meaning to try this sample for awhile now, it smells amazing, but the taste is…very off. It tastes like pepper. Pepper and just a little citrus. It’s so definitely the oolong that is making it taste like pepper. And it’s kind of gross. I’m hoping letting it cool off will make it better.

It’s disappointing because I just picked up a six pack of San Pellegrino’s grapefruit soda for $1.50!! I don’t understand why it’s being discontinued because it tastes so good that I am drinking a second can today while drinking grapefruit tea and now I want a legitimate grapefruit.

My jaw is absolutely killing me tonight, and I don’t know what happened. I’ve had a problem that I’m sure is TMJ since I had braces and they put some robotic looking thing in my mouth to try to pull back an overbite. I’ve complained to my dentist before and I’m “too young to have jaw problems.” So if I end up at an urgent care place tomorrow because I’m crying we’ll see how that goes. There are periods where it’s feeling like it’s trying to separate from the rest of my skull, not even kidding.

Now it’s cooled and I still get the strong pepper notes. It’s not that terrible but I’d like just a bit more grapefruit from it.

@TheTeaFairy – It was so weird, they also were selling potato chips for $8. And you just picked your sample size bag and had tea. And it was a big deal in my dream, they were very busy just for this.

I gave in and took ibuprofen and it’s helped a lot, thankfully. Now I have to try to keep myself from rolling onto that side while sleeping, that’s now the real challenge.

@My Friend Rashad – I got it at Kroger and I’m gonna go check the other one I live by and see if they did it too. I hate discovering something is amazing and it’s going away. I love the blood orange one too but I’ve rarely seen this one before and it’s so good. I love that it has the bitter rind flavor to it too (which is probably why they were getting rid of it).
