This tea is quietly lovely, which is fitting for time spent among books. I never know which Adagio blends I’ll keep going back to, even if I love them at first, but this has become a comfort blend I will have to buy again soon because it is almost gone. Soft pu-erh with warm, clean assam and the barest hint of sweetness.

Profile

Bio

I love the UK, cats, of Montreal, Sherlock, my Kindle, true adventure books, and tea.

My go-to cup is a builder’s tea: black and strong with milk. Never with sugar.

Tea Ratings (borrowed directly from Anyanka):

100-90: Delicious, must keep in stock.

89-80: Excellent, a definite reorder.

79-70: Good, an occasional reorder.

69-50: Pleasant, but it was a one night stand.

49-30: Not good, but drinkable.

29-20: Bad, but I finished the cup.

19-10: Terrible. Couldn’t finish a cup.

10 and below: Undrinkable, requires mouthwash and counseling.
