drank Caramel by Adagio Teas

After a too-weak second steep attempt with Kashmiri Chai (I did 5 mins, but next time, I’ll do it longer, and hopefully that’ll work better), I thought I’d try this one! :)

The leaves just smell sooo yummy. Mmmm caramel. Still smells like caramel when brewed, but there’s definitely still some black tea scent in there.

And the taste? Smooth, black tea with a hint of caramel. It’s got a light sweetness to it that doesn’t overpower the tea. It’s yummy! I can’t complain. :)

I did knock the steeping time down to 3 mins from Adagio’s suggested 5 mins. That steeping time definitely seems to work, at least for me.

Bio

I blame half of my tea obsession on Japan and the time I spent there in a study abroad program. Tea is everywhere in Japan, and I drank it daily while staying with my host family. When I came back home, I found myself craving it!

The other half of my tea obsession I blame on my job as a barista at Borders, where we serve Tazo loose leaf teas. I hadn’t even considered loose leaf teas a possibility until I started working there! The freshness and the difference in quality really turned me on to loose leaf teas.

So bit by bit, I’ve been increasing my tea self-education, and I drink tea at least once a day. I love trying new kinds, and unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), the more I learn, the more I want to try!

In addition to tea, I also enjoy books and music. If you would like, look for me on last.fm (user: giragirataiyou) or Goodreads (user: thexquietxlife). :)
