drank Emerald Needle by Adagio Teas
330 tasting notes

My cold-brewed Orange Dulce won’t be ready for awhile yet, and I needed something to drink with my microwave egg roll. I decided to go with this green tea so that I can try and polish it off – it’s one of the sample tins. So I hot brewed it strong, and poured it into a glass of ice.

This makes a pleasant iced tea. It’s grassy and mild. Not much astringency. I’m drinking it straight, with no sweetener. Which reminds me that I keep intending to make a simple syrup, but I always forget. Last time I made some, I made too much and it became a sugar crystal science experiment in my fridge. I need to make a small amount, and then remember to actually use it!

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, I received a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
