drank Turmeric Bliss by Adagio Teas
52 tasting notes

10min steep because I was in the middle of rearranging my tea cabinet when I decided this was my brew of choice, but it’s still within the recommended allotment, so it’s all good.

It’s beautiful in the bag – big chunks of apple, golden threads of marigold leaves – and it steeps to an enticing gold that smells of citrus and warmth. Each sip is softly fruity with a heat that trails along just at the end (the pepper I’d assume); as the tea cools it becomes more prominently citrusy without losing the heat.

My only complaint with this is that the flavour isn’t exactly robust. I think I was more in the mood for a heavier mouthfeel or more lingering aftertaste for my first cup of the day, so I’ll have to try this again as an evening brew.

Second steep and I think I’ve figured out what it was needing! I added about 1/4 tsp of ground ginger to the basket and gave it a solid 15 min @ 212 – the fruit flavours have dropped back a bit, but there’s earthiness from the turmeric and pepper that slides into a heavy, lingering ginger aftertaste.

I’d give the mix + ginger a solid 84, but stand by my rating for the unaltered version.

Self-employed, sleep deprived and always on the go.

Trying to cut down on caffeine – trying being the operative word – but I’m generally an Earl Grey drinker with a strong aversion to coconut, jasmine and chocolate in my tea.

I brew almost exclusively Western style, unsweetened.

90-100: Cupboard staple – will buy when I run out

75-90: I’ll drink what I have, may restock when out

55-75: I’ll drink it, but probably won’t buy it

0-55: Might finish it, might feed it to the sink
If you see something in my cupboard and want to try it, hit me up – I’m always down to sell/trade samples
