drank Birthday Tea by Adagio Teas
78 tasting notes

Wooo! This is one of my favorite teas, but maaan I made a mistake preparing it today.
I’ve been noticing several of my older teas were tasting weak so I started adding in extra tea to make sure there was good potency for each. Low and behold, I have found one that is certainly still good. >_<

I put too much tea to water in this and the tannin made my mouth cry.
I couldn’t finish it.

At least I know my Birthday Tea is still good.
However, it did raise a disappointing situation. My tea storage methods are not good enough.
My teas that have been stored a while are mostly in cheap tins. They are mostly old tasting now. The Birthday tea has been in its original resealable Adagio package this whole time and it still tastes fresh. Oh dears :c I guess I’ve learned the hard way about needing good quality tea tins. But how to afford such things in this economy you know? Yuck. >_<

Anyone recommend good quality tea tins at a decent price?
Bonus points if pretty, especially blue :D

Enjoying Tea has some good tins actually, and pretty cheap. I just bought some from them. (:

Loves tea, reading, music, art, video games, roleplaying, and spending time with her wife and daughter. :)

Ask me for a $5 gift cert to Adagio if you’ve never ordered from them!

As for tea, loves flavored black teas, herbals, and good lattes most. Green is hit or miss with me and I haven’t found a white I like yet. I like my tea sweet, no matter how much some tea connoisseurs turn their noses up at me for it. I love trying new teas and I’ll try anything once!

I noticed this elsewhere on the site so I’m going to post a ratings legend as well:

95-100 Favorite; This is one of my favorite teas. I will want to keep this in stock all the time. I will drink a lot of this tea. I’m likely to send samples of this in swaps because I LOVE it and want to SHARE my love of it with you!

90-94 Excellent; Some of the best teas I’ve tried. Delish. I will probably buy more.

80-89 Very Good; I liked it and would like to have it again for sure. I will surely buy it again at some point. Not quite “The best” of any category, but some good stuff to be sure.

70-79 Pretty Good; Maybe it’s just not quite my type of tea or not quite my flavor, but I acknowledge that it’s a good tea. I might drink it again if the mood strikes me. Not very likely to buy it again. May still recommend it to others based on their tastes.

50-69 Okay; I probably won’t buy it again, but will probably finish drinking what I have. It’s not bad. Not good… but not bad. I probably won’t recommend it.

50 or less Meh; I didn’t really enjoy this tea. I won’t buy it again and can’t recommend it.

10-0 I must have really, really hated this tea. It may have killed my puppy or absconded with my cheesecake. I’m pretty sure it killed Professor Xavier.


Alabama :c
