So, it’s been a couple days since I’ve updated. I was laid off my job on Friday so that’ll probably put a damper on the whole “trying new teas thing.” Sad day. :’(

IN BRIGHTER NEWS THOUGH, I WON A TEA GIVE AWAY ON TUMBLR!! YES! I got 4 of the Adagio’s Zodiac teas. I thought I would start out with this one because I am a Sagittarius, hurhur. MAN, I’m glad I picked this. It was SOOO good!

I resteeped this 3 different times and every time it was fantastic! The third time it started losing flavour, but that’s to be expected. I was excited to have the raspberry as the fruit in this tea since the other Adaigo tea I’ve had with raspberry was also really good. I was worried, though, that it might be too fruity. Fruity teas are among my favorite, but based on the ingredients I really didn’t want it overpower everything else. Thankfully that was not the case.

The raspberry was very subdued and made a great compliment to the vanilla and creme. The vanilla and creme was more in the forefront, but unlike the strawberry creme tea I’ve reviewed in the past this was not creamy in a gross way. The earl grey was definitely in there too, but I really had to try and pick everything out. This tea really just blends everything together in a wonderful way. Sweet, and delicious. Adding a bit of sugar made it even better.

FANTASTICO.

Sorry to hear about the job situation! Hope you’re in a good place, though, and can take a few days to rest and relax before you start looking for something else. =)

Not much too say. I love tea! Especially greens and oolong. I also really enjoy the occasional fruity tea, but really I’m up to try anything.! …Well except earl grey, I really don’t like bergamot.

When I first joined I usually always forgot to finish my last sip of tea leaving it cold and alone, destined for the drain. Nowadays I still leave the last couple sips of tea. I really drink my cups slowly, HOWEVER, I almost always finish my cups now, even if they are room temperature.
