4847 tasting notes

I’m not sure why I reached for this tea this morning, but it tastes pretty good.

Yesterday afternoon, I mowed the lawn and because of the rains we’ve been having over the past week or so, there was a lot of pollen in the grass. I didn’t really notice it while mowing the lawn, but I notice it today… my throat feels like it’s swollen shut! UGH.

So maybe that is why I chose this tea today. I think when I went into the kitchen I wanted something that would be strong enough to overcome the sort of dulled feeling that rests on the back of my mouth today. I suppose if this tea doesn’t do the trick, I shall have to resort to the heavy artillery and get out some of my allergi-TEA. (Which I probably will do at some point this morning anyways, I just needed some caffeine first)

Despite the dulled sensation in my mouth, I can taste the notes of caramel and cream this morning, which is nice. I do wish that Adagio’s black tea base was not as harsh as it is, because I am also really getting the — shall I call it astringency? Tannins? Heavy starchy texture? For those of you who are familiar with Adagio’s black teas you probably get what I’m referring to, right?

Anyways, I do wish there was less of that this morning, because I am tasting it stronger than I usually do this morning. Hopefully as I make my way down the mug I will notice it less so that I can finish the cup.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
