drank Keemun Rhapsody by Adagio Teas
330 tasting notes

It was far too hot yesterday afternoon to do anything in the kitchen, so we threw in the towel and went out to eat, where someone else’s industrial air conditioner was not laboring as much as our home’s unit. So my dishes still sit unwashed on the counter – including all of my tea bottles.

So today, I went with Rhapsody in the Bodum in-mug infuser basket that a co-worker gave me two Christmases ago for a Secret Santa gift (along with a joke box of shudderingly horrible-smelling mystery “health” tea from an Asian market). I keep it my desk drawer at work, so I always have it. The mug and infuser that is. The mystery tea got tossed long ago – it was nasty!

I emptied the last of the sampler sized tin into the basket (I’ll have to take it home and refill it), and got hot water from the dispenser.

There’s not much to add on this tea that I haven’t said before. It’s my dependable default for a black tea at work.

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.
