drank Irish Breakfast by Adagio Teas

I don’t usually go for Irish Breakfast tea, simply because it’s usually boring flavor-wise and I like my tea exotic. But I was really pleasantly surprised by this tea. I like it a lot. The leaves have a very pleasant, sweet smell. I knew I’d like it as soon as I smelled it. I will probably be re-ordering this. It’s also probably good to mix with other teas as a black tea base.

drank Earl Grey Bravo by Adagio Teas

This is the best Earl Grey I’ve ever had. The bergamot isn’t too strong like in a lot I’ve tried. I served it on my balcony to a few friends and they drank every last bit of it.

drank Peach Black by Stash Tea Company

I’m impressed with this. I usually don’t go for bagged tea anymore, but my mom made me a cup and I liked it a lot. It doesn’t just taste like peaches. It’s got a lovely almost floral taste to go along with it.

Like I said about the raspberry version, this is good for what it is. (Cheap canned tea.) No sour aftertaste and delicious mango flavor. It actually tastes like it has mango juice in it. I like it a lot, and will definitely be buying it again to drink on the road or at work.

Not a very strong tea taste, but I’m used to that with canned tea drinks. It’s pretty good for what it is. The raspberry flavor is pleasant with the honey and it doesn’t have that sour aftertaste that a lot of canned teas have (*cough*Arizona*cough*). I’d buy it again… it’s nice to have at work since a lot of gas stations carry it.

This is basically all I’ve been drinking for the past two weeks.
In fact, I’ve got a huge glass of it right here, iced with sugar. So refreshing. :)

drank Black Pearl Tea by Lipton

I don’t know how I feel about this. There’s some kind of odd aftertaste that I didn’t like. I dunno, it’s not awful, but it’s not a tea I’d persue.

drank Tazo Chai by Tazo

Just a generic chai. Not particularly high quality black tea in it. But still nicely spiced and warm-tasting. Very good with cream and sugar.

Love this tea! It has such a warm cinnamony-vanilla flavor. You can even taste a hint of rum. It’s perfect on cold nights or after dinner with cream. I’d even venture to say this would be great with vanilla ice cream.

drank Blackberry by Adagio Teas

Something very artificial and bitter about it. I think it’s the taste of the blackberry leaves themselves I’m not liking. I’m usually all about blackberry tea, but not this one.

Profile

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, chai, and pretty much any black tea from Fujian, China. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, sage, apple, coconut, raspberry, lychee, bergamot, osmanthus, cucumber, lavender, vanilla, cardamom, ginger, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.

You can assume that I’m preparing my tea using the Western method. I use zero-calorie sweeteners and in the hot months, I drink my tea almost exclusively iced.
