MY ADAGIO PACKAGE CAME TODAY YAY!! Now have 4 new samples and 4 signature blends that I made, and this is the first one I tried as it was the one I was the most excited about. LEMON & GINGER TEA is delicious and I love me my grassy greens so I figured I couldn’t go wrong with mixing them.

I AM, HOWEVER, having a problem with just that: I CAN’T SEEM TO MIX EM PROPERLY. The first time I steeped for a about 2.5 minutes, due to the nature of the kukicha, and it tasted very much like sweet, grassy kukicha IT WAS DELICIOUS but the lemon grass just didn’t get a chance to really shine! So I tried again, going for 7 minutes and then the lemon grass overpowered the kukicha! IT’S STILL GOOD, both ways, but I’m guessing I’ll have to give this one another test run later maybe at 4 minutes to see if I can really get a good mix of both.

SUPER CASUAL TEA AFICIONADO!
my tastes are not refined.

i tend to steep teas too long and give a lot of high ratings and get ridiculously excited over things; i apologize for my excessive use of caps but TEA IS EXCITING okay!

greens & oolongs are my favorite!
also like sweet black teas!
and occasional light fruity teas!

i’d love to do a tea trade with you!
