a lovely tea, great flavor, gorgeous orange red color. I may keep some in a jar for these ugly gray days! If I can stop drinking it. Be careful how long you brew it, I am going to try 2.5 min next

drank Gyokuro by Adagio Teas
197 tasting notes

All you wonderful Gyokuro fans who so kindly wrote about brewing this stuff. I tried, I really tried, I brewed it every which way and I still don’t like it. I am a big hater of fish and seaweedy stuff and there is just enough that I must sadly decline. It is an attractive tea and I leave it to you all with my best.

I wonder if it is possibly Adagio’s version of Gyokuro. In truth, I am not a fan of most Adagio teas and I’ve found some that are radically different when bought from other vendors. It is astonishing how different teas can be from different vendors.

The Gyokuro Suimei I bought from Den’s Tea doesn’t have a seaweed or fishy smell. (If it did I couldn’t drink it either as I dislike that also.) The dry leaves smell like fresh cut grass, the brewed tea smells lightly vegetal and the taste is vegetal as well and very fresh. There is nothing of fish or seaweed there.

I may try some of that later, after i recover lol

drank Empire Blend #34 by Harrods

A blend of Darjeeling, Assam and Nilgiri. Not nearly as bold as many similar blends. A very nice tea for when you want a black but not too strong or too malty or too anything that English style blacks can be

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 15 sec

drank Rosemary Tea by Custom
197 tasting notes

You won’t find the comapny which sells this, as it is exclusive to Me. I am experimenting with adding rosemary to me tea, since I love it. It tastes just like…Rosemary. I have to use less, as it is VERY dominant.

drank Kai Hua Crescendo by Adagio Teas

Very delicate in smell, sight and taste, but with a nice full mouth feel. I added about 2 drops of lemon juice and that brought out a bit more flavor in the nutty/floral department.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec
