Not sure why I love plain green tea so much but glad I do. This one is quite grassy. Very reminiscent of the teas we had while in Japan. Still below Genmaicha in my opinion but for a straight up green tea it’s well balanced.

I get it…greens are satisfying in a particular way!

drank Dewy Cherry by Adagio Teas
423 tasting notes

Used to hate cherries. Didn’t even like cherry candy anything. But as with most adults my tastes have changed and some how I ended up finding myself liking them. Well…. kinda. I prefer the sour ones. Like in this tea.

The dry smell is great. Would make a great potpourri. But is better as a tea. I didn’t pick up much from the brewed smell. The taste isn’t quite what I thought it was going to be but I’m still enjoying it. Fruity yes but the sour cherry isn’t as present as I thought it would be. Good hot but I like it better lukewarm.

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp

drank Paris by Harney & Sons
423 tasting notes

The smell is better then the taste, but the taste is good. I’ve never been to Paris but if there were a tea to go along with every city name this one would be a good fit. Perhaps I steeped it too long. I am tasting some bitterness and more black tea then I am the other flavors. I will retry this again and be more careful about my steep time.

Preparation
5 min, 45 sec 1 tsp

I love this tea. I prepare it with just under boiling water and let it steep for 4 minutes. It’s only slightly bitter that way but the flavor stands out more – personally.

drank Plum Crazy by Joy's Teaspoon

Well shoot. I steeped what was left of the sample. Mostly broken tea leaves. Even with the brokenness i can still tell this is a good tea. Mine just lacks some of the plum.

Not really a fan of this tea. Pretty sure i steeped it for the right amount of time. Not tasting much chocolate though. This is one I’ll just have to retry and see if it comes out better next time.

You might want to edit your review as the tea is called Slimful :)

It’s really good with a touch of milk.

drank Raspberry Patch by Adagio Teas
423 tasting notes

Some herbals pack a punch and some just gently land kisses on your forehead. This one is a forehead kisser. IT’s nice and light but still has enough flavor to make you feel like your not drinking flavored water. I was hoping for more raspberry flavor. Perhaps I shall go stick the remaining raspberries we have in our fridge into the tea. In fact I think I shall.

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp

haha forehead kisser

The first couple of sips I took I did not like. Way too pepperminty. As it cools down the flavor blend better but I still don’t like the pepper mint. Don’t get me wrong its a good tea. I guess I’m just not in the mood for peppermint right now.

It’s a very subtle cookie. The almond is also subtle but in a good way. Think I will try this one again with some amaretto honey and see what happens.

Stephanie

Amaretto honey sounds amazing :)

My husband would enjoy this if he could drink it. Alas, it has dairy so he can’t. The orange flavor is very subtle compared with the chocolate. Which is probably good because using real orange slices to flavor things (when they are dried) can be tough. Most of the time they end up bitter.

Preparation
3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
