This is weird. I don’t know what to think of it. I went the “mate latte” route, as described on the bag, by adding a tiny bit of sugar and cream. It’s currently 6:30 in the morning and I’m at work for overtime. I can’t keep my eyes open, so I figured now was a good time to bust open this bag.

It kind of reminds me of a pu-erh, which I’m not a big fan of. It has that smoky, earthy taste to it, but not fishy like most of the pu-erhs I’ve tried, so it does have that going for it. Maybe I’m just not used to pure, regular yerba mate. The only mate I’ve ever had has always been blended with other flavors, like cocoa, chocolate, or coffee. I’ll keep giving this a try. Don’t want to let a giant bag of tea go to waste.

This is my new favorite jasmine anything. I used slightly more water than usual (on accident) and a little bit of sugar (on purpose) and basically cried into my cup because it was so good.

Bought on a whim during an Adagio buying binge. I thought it would be nice to have to pair with some of the fruity teas I have, but this is really lovely by itself with some half and half and sugar.

Flavors: Sweet, Vanilla

I use this multiple times a day every day at work. I don’t know how I ever lived without it.

Ugh. One day I’ll remember how much I hate caramel/chocolate teas and I’ll stop buying them. I don’t know why I bought this.

It’s not the worst with a little bit of cream and sugar. Kind of like a caramel latte that way. I’m unsure about it. I’ve had way worse “dessert”-flavored teas, though.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate

Cecil, love of my life, why are you so perfect? You’re more perfect than Perfect Carlos.

This is such a nice little chai. It’s not astringent at all, and I don’t think I’ve ever had a green-based chai before. It’s nice. I was a little put off by the sprinkles, but I don’t think they make much difference, and the more I think about it, the more I think they belong in every WTNV blend. Except for Steve Carlsberg. He doesn’t deserve nice things. Steve and his stupid, tan Toyota Corolla. Ugh.

Flavors: Spices, Vanilla

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

drank Spearmint by Adagio Teas

I was torn between this and one of my Welcome to Night Vale teas, but as the day went on, my stomach felt sick(er), so mint tea it is!

The leaves smell very strong and cool. Tastes just like Bigelow Mint Medley, though, which is my usual go-to for mint, since we have tons and tons of Bigelow at work. Kind of disappointed, but not really. It’s a good mint tea.

Flavors: Spearmint

drank Mocha Nut Mate by Adagio Teas

Oh, this is good. I bought it on a whim while I was on an Adagio tea-buying spree. I usually don’t like chocolate teas, but the notes on here convinced me it might be a good idea. You all were not wrong!

I thought I was accidentally over-steeping because I started talking to someone and not paying attention to my tea, but nope. Right on time. It’s nice and toasty and the chocolate/hazelnut taste is definitely there, but not too fakey-fakey tasting like some chocolate teas I’ve had.

Flavors: Chocolate, Hazelnut
