Sweet buttery biscuits, I am in love with this stuff. I’ve been waiting over a year to get it (they don’t sell it around here, and I haven’t had the chance to order it online) but I just finally got it last week and its phenomenal. I already love rooibos, but as far as I’m concerned, this just managed to improve on perfection. God-level hot, excellent cold, I’m going to have to buy this stuff in bulk.

I’ve been eying this stuff for a while now and just finally bought it recently, and I was honestly shocked at how good it is. I steep mine for quite a while, until it gets fairly dark, and (to me) there’s no bitterness to it. With a little bit of sugar, this stuff is absolutely excellent, especially when you’re dealing with an annoying scratchy throat. My only issue with it, and this might be my mugs or something, is that it gets cold really freaking fast.

I would’ve never bought this on my own, my boyfriend picked it up for me (because I’m a fiend for anything raspberry or pomegranate, my head just about explodes if they’re both in there together) but its not as bad as I thought it’d be. I’m usually not big on green tea, and reading chamomile there made me even more apprehensive, but its actually halfway decent. Smells amazing, too.

My only real problem with it is that I feel like I’m always putting too much sugar in, it almost always tastes/feels kind of…syrupy? I usually put two spoonfuls of sugar in most of my teas, with this stuff I’m using maybe half a spoon? its odd to me. I ought to try it with honey next time, though.

Love the bite of the ginger, best tea I’ve found for a sore throat.

I usually hate chamomile, but I actually like this stuff. Not enough to make it often, but every once in a while, I get a craving. My boyfriend is absolutely enamored with it, though. I have to steep it forever it seems, though.

I love that I found a decaf chai that’s cheap as hell, and (in my opinion) pretty tasty. Definitely a little weak, I like my chai with more bite to it, but with a good bit of sugar and some cream, its great. Just steep it for a while. Like, over 5 minutes.

I adore the tartness of it, but I’ve always really loved tar/sour stuff. And blueberries, for that matter. I love that when I’m brewing this stuff, it smells like a berry-bomb went off or something. I don’t drink it much, it gets a little too sweet way too easily, but I like it a lot. Its great cold, at least to me, as well.

I like this stuff but…I keep tasting cinnamon-y. Or something similar.
Its really, really odd to me.

I love it. I never thought lemongrass and mint would be good together, but hot damn. Especially great when my stomach is being all blargh.

Oh, how I love this stuff.
I love it so much its ridiculous. I didn’t care for it the first time I tried it (didn’t steep it nearly long enough) but after doing it again, and using a bit more sugar and cream, its like liquid candy to me.

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
