drank Toasted Sesame by Adagio Teas
61 tasting notes

I had a decently sized, well thought out comment on this tea. But then I got distracted, ate dinner, did some work, watch a little South Park, and realized I never finished or posted the note. And then we had a system update, so it was lost.
All in all it boiled down to this tea tastes like sesame seeds and it was delicious in that sense. But I’m not a huge fan of sesame, so I won’t drink it often.
Also, the dried leaves smell exactly like soy sauce, and maybe a little bit of peanut butter if you stick your nose in there deep and good. They look super oily too. Very odd.

eek…sorry about losing your post :( Hope the new features are worth it!

Seeing too many posts about this tea…it does seem…odd. Must…try…

Oh, totally worth it! Other than the initial spam on my dashboard, I really like the cupboard idea.
Mostly my fault, I left it up for like about 2+ hrs.

Oh I hate when posts get eaten. Happened to me too the other day, although that was entirely my own fault. I think there is some sort of natural rule somewhere that says that the longer the post is, the more likely it is to disappear mysteriously, because I can’t recall ever having it happen with a new post. I’ve taken to writing my posts in Semagic now, which I also use for my LJ and then copy/pasting the whole thing over when I’m done. Especially if I know I’m going to be rambly.

Between this and the artichoke tea I might be in for a rather bizarre purchase from adagio. After the holidays, perhaps.

@Takgoti, There’s a special on Adagio right now that if you spend $19 you get a sample pack of the savory teas for free. That’s why we’re all trying them out at once. And don’t forget the Sweet Potato Pie tea. ;)

Jillian

Personally, I prefer to blame boredom. And yeah we’re totally turning this into a free-topic forum. :D
