drank BeerButter Tea by Custom-Adagio Teas
1000 tasting notes

This is my “dashboard inspired” tea. Roswell was drinking this yesterday and it reminded me that I’m not drinking my custom Adagio teas.

This one is pretty good. It’s caramel, and vanilla as stated – I’m also getting some chestnut that’s not really listed, so I’m not sure why I’m getting that.
I’m not sure I will ever order these again, but they are fun, the tins are cute, and this tea isn’t bad…

Definitely. I didn’t love most of my Star Wars teas, but the tins are worth it. :P

Dexter

That’s kind of what I’m thinking too – tins are cute – tea is just ok…. :))

Cameron B.

I’m kind of tempted by the Hobbit-themed one just because the art is so cute and bright! :P

Dexter

LOL I have so much tea in my house that I can’t start buying more because the tins are cute – and Adagio shipping is still pretty expensive to Canada. Basically what I’m saying is that I’m trying hard not to be tempted.

Cameron B.

Yeah, I’m definitely not going to buy any now! The only purchases I foresee are Butiki and TeaVivre (both sales). And then I really need to go on hiatus! :P

Cameron B.

Oh, and maybe Verdant, if I end up liking the Minnesota Blend that Sarsonator is so generously letting me sample!

Dexter

My problem is that I end up buying “unforeseen” orders. I end up buying stuff right before a sale or right after a sale. I’m really bad at “I NEED It NOW” – and don’t touch it for 3 months… I really need to get better at this. I’ve been saying that I’m on hiatus for 6 months now. LOL look how well that’s working out for me.
Wishing you all the best in trying to curb your order, only buying onsale – if this works out for you, I’ll hit you up for lessons. :))

C.S. Lewis – “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

I needed to update my profile. I joined Steepster 03Mar13. I am just amazed at how much my tastes have changed since then.
When I discovered loose leaf tea about a year and half ago, I didn’t know anything other than my local Davids and Teavana/Teaopia. Stumbling onto Steepster CHANGED EVERYTHING.
Hello, my name is Dex I’m a tea addict.
I’ve been through the “I need to try every single tea out there” phase. I really hope the worst of that has passed. I’ve learned enough to know that I only need to try HALF of all the teas out there. LOL
When I started this journey, I was all about the flavored rooibos and fruity tisanes. Don’t get me wrong there is still room for dessert (chocolate/caramel/nutty) Rooibos teas in my cupboard and I still do enjoy them, BUT I am quickly learning to appreciate the some of the straight teas of the world.
Big bold (but not icky)pu’erh is suddenly my favorite, followed by woody/roasted oolongs. I’m just starting to explore straight black teas, and have found some that I really like.
Generally speaking I’m not into greens at all, only like the occasional green oolong, and white teas are just too mild for my tastes (unless they are fruit flavored). I still enjoy really good fruit tisanes, but am now cold steeping them.
I don’t like floral/herbal blends, and mint anything is not on my preferred list.
I am still exploring new teas, adapting to my changing tastes, understanding more every day how little I really know about tea. Ultimately I would love to find approximately 50 teas that I just “can’t live without” and always have them in my cupboard. That might not be practical, but that what I’m searching for. It’s going to be a fun journey.

All in all, I love this site. I’ve met some wonderful people, and have gotten to try some amazing teas because of them. It really restores your faith in humanity when you get a note saying “oh by the way I sent you some tea”. Wonderful, generous, people here.
