T&C TTB Tea # 5 – Backlog May 23

This was my very first Adagio tea!

I wasn’t overly impressed with it. It tasted somewhat bitter with a sour aftertaste. I definitely got the caramel/vanilla flavors but there was also a weird chemical taste that I picked up on. This tea only loosely implies “butter beer”, I actually preferred the 52Teas version. I’d added milk to this in the hopes of making it creamier. It did not work.

IMO this one was missing some root beer flavor or something.

To be honest, I’ve had the real deal, i mean as real as a fictional beverage can be – the Butter Beer from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando.

And that stuff was AWESOME. So no imitations will ever compare!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
