drank Sweet Potato Pie by Adagio Teas
911 tasting notes

I can’t help but compare this one to Samovar’s Yunnan Golden Buds, which is unflavored but tastes of baked sweet potatoes with butter and brown sugar (in other words, awesome). I’ll tell you right off – this one? Doesn’t win the contest. But at the same time, I like it. For me, it needs milk and sugar to really work, but with those additions it tastes like uncooked sweet potatoes with a starchy undernote that makes me think of the baked Yukon Gold potato I had yesterday). It’s a solid tea with some good texture to it, which I really like for the mornings. Bold and thick, it makes a good morning tea that is just fine in a tumbler (something I don’t think I’d ever attempt to do with YGB). So while this isn’t anywhere near the delicious sweet potato-ness of YGB, I still like it.

Oh now I need to try YGB! Thanks for the comparison:)

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
