Backlogging from last night.. Bad, I know.
I wasn’t sure whether to log this under Honeybush Mango or Gunpowder, since I went half and half with the two teas. This is now my new favorite blend. I think however, in order to get a better balance, that you should use more of the honeybush mango than the gunpowder. I liked my first blending experiment better, where I used 2 teaspoons of the Mango and 1 of the gunpowder. The veggie taste was still there, but it had an overall sweeter flavor since there was more Mango after all.
Wow. What a week. I don’t know if I’ve just been working too hard or if I’m getting sick, but I’m just exhausted by about 4 pm everyday. Perhaps I just need more sleep. Being a music major is harder than it looks! 4 hours a day just practicing, on top of another 2-3 hours of rehearsal on some days is just killing me. Oh yeah, and 8 AM classes. BOO. Luckily just one more week until spring break.. I can finally relax, sleep in, and even take a shower without shoes on.. you know. The dorm life. Also, perhaps I’ve been listening to too much folk music. It puts me in such a relaxed, tired mood. MORE GUNPOWDER I SAY!
Been logging this stuff a lot over the past week but then again I did just order another 6 oz..
Let me say that I simply love Adagio. I find their website and service to be the most welcoming of anyone I’ve experienced and they take the confusion out of tea for beginners. I don’t know what it is, but I always get a feeling of ease when I shop with them. Also, since I’m a big twitter addict I love how they send me my shipment updates via Twitter, not to mention their shipping is cheap and quick. Nothin better than that.
But yeah. We all know how I feel about this tea :) Nuff’said.
Finally got the gist of this tea. Steep’d for about 2 minutes with a little over 2 teaspoons in 16oz of water. Really brought the smokiness out and gave it a real, smooth spinachy flavor. This was surprisingly buttery as well. Re order? MM yes.
Ah yes. Gunpowder. Hopefully 3-4 cups of you will awaken me from zombie mode. Time to put you to the test.
AHH. Backlogging from this morning.
I woke up with a craving of this stuff so decided to make a cup really quickly before class. In rushing I actually let it steep too long (ironically enough) so it was a tad bitter but still good. I dunno. I love the taste of buttered spinach and this stuff reminds me so much of it. Great staple tea in my opinion. Anyone know of any other brands that are good? I’ve only had Adagio’s Gunpowder and I wonder how it stacks up to other companies.
Enjoying my third steep of these buttery spinachy goodness. Seriously, I can’t get enough. I need to order more! In my opinion, this tea is such a staple in every green tea drinker’s cabinet, although I’ve never tried any other blends. Any other recommendations other than Adagios? Steeped for about 2 minutes will a little over 2 teaspoons in 16oz of good old hot water. Best combination in terms of taste in my opinion. Mmm.
Alright, alright. I’ll admit I’m getting back into the swing of things. Needed a quick caffeine boost at 8pm. Good’ol Gunpowder. Mmm. mm.
Enjoying a few hundred cups of my favorite green tea..
Second time making this; results are far better. I used a little more tea, about two heaping teaspoons full. Resulted in a bolder flavor which I enjoy. Steeped for around 3:30, but I feel like 3 minutes flat would suffice. The buttery flavor is really there now, and I do enjoy it a lot :) Reminds me of buttered spinach. Just going to get one steep out of this one as I’m in a bit of a rush, but at least now I found out my preferences for this tea :)
