I kept the parameters on this one the same but used a different steeper today. It definitely (and unexpectedly) tasted more balanced and the ginger was less overwhelming. A bit creamier too. I’m not sure if it was just the spoonful I happened to get or the steeper, but I’m upping the score a couple points because I appreciated it a little more.

9th tea of Christmas! Not too many left…could I finish them today? Maybe. I need to get to cleaning more again. Oh dishes. Dishes need to be done but I need a new package of sponges. Sigh.

So I was worried about this because of the oversteeping comment too, I already have an awful time with Adagio black teas so the gunpowder in here along with that had me a bit more concerned than usual, but it worked! I think I steeped it at 190 too just in case.

I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. It was pretty hearty, with just a little smoke and a good bit of spice. Nothing too strong and overpowering, it all worked really well together.

This is definitely not a tea I would ever have found on my own, so that’s awesome. Not that I might drink it again after I finish what I have from the swap, but it’s nice to know that some people out there can do such an amazing job making up blends on Adagio’s site.

An interesting assam and gunpowder -based tea with interesting notes of tartness, ginger, cream and something else a bit darker back there in the mix. I wish there was more ginger in here.. right now it’s a bit mellow in the background, almost like a faint ginger creme. It’s still lovely, and I’m glad I steeped it for a short time to eradicate all possible bitterness.

Thanks to Khaleesical for sharing this in the 12 Days of Christmas tea swap!

This is the tea for day #9 of the 12 days of Christmas. Thank you Khaleesical!

I will be honest, I was a bit scared of this one and I can’t even give you a valid reason why. Maybe the warning about not over steeping, maybe my last encounter with Irish breakfast tea, whatever it was I am glad I got over it because this is a pretty enjoyable cup of tea!

From the dry leaf I get the spicy fruity/ginger smell. The tea steeped has a nice balance of malty, ginger and cream. I was expecting this tea to be a bit astringent, but I am not getting much of that. This was a great tea for my morning cup. This is again another tea that I would have never picked to try on my own that I am really liking from the swap!

Day #9 of the 12 days of Christmas. Thank you Khaleesical-very cleaver how you tied it in! Can I just say how excited I was to read that this is from the “Tales and Tea Leaves” Lord of the Rings fandom blends. I have an Arwyn in my house, so if you are on the same wave I need not say more! This is my first Adagio experience. I will say I enjoyed it. The black tea blend was all that I tasted and it was nice.

Sipdown (196/198)!

I kept the steep time short to finish this one off and that definitely helped with the flavour. This is less ginger and bitterness, and surprisingly more cream so that’s a win for sure! Overall, definitely a more pleasant way to finish this one off. Seriously; I can hardly believe this is the same tea that I had yesterday.

Now to have some teas that I didn’t have yesterday.
