drank Sour Apple by Adagio Teas
32 tasting notes

I actually liked this quite a bit better than I expected to. One of the samplers I picked up when I bought my rooibos chocomint last week, figured I should finally give it a shot tonight.

Opening it up, it smells incredibly sour and almost acidic but brewing it cuts the sourness by quite a bit, had the kitchen smelling pretty damn nice. Out of curiosity I nabbed one of the dry apple chunks and ate it, just for funsies.

Steeped for about 10 minutes, turns a beautiful raspberry-ish red, and while the sour is still there its blended very nicely with the fruit tastes (and the bit of sugar I put in). I like it MUCH better cold, though. Hot, it almost feels to me like drinking warm juice. Cold, its fantastic. So this stuff will probably wait around till it gets too hot to drink warm tea again, but I most definitely like it and will probably pick up a full sized bag when I’ve got spare money.

Bio

I am an absolute whore for rooibos and honeybush and if Adagio Tea was a person, I’d probably send them 20-page love letters written in scrawing lunatic handwriting. Okay, maybe not that bad but aaagh. Yes. I like them quite a bit.

I always drink decaf, as I’ve got an awful sensitivity to caffeine due to my anxiety issues. So, don’t rag on me too hard about it, yes?

I’m a published writer, handcrafter (check out my goodies on the website URL), musician, artist and cooking fanatic. What can I say, I like to keep busy :3
