drank Ti Kuan Yin by Adagio Teas
253 tasting notes

This tea pretty much sucked last time I had it, so screw Adagio’s brewing recommendations. I’m going with Teavivre’s instructions.


1st & 2nd steeping: It tasted just as boring as last time, then I added another scoop of sugar. Much better tasting! The floral aspect was brought forward a bit more. The sweetness of the sugar went really well with the flavor of tea.

3rd – 5th steepings: It was pretty much downhill from there. The little bit of floral that was there is gone and nothing but sweetness is less.

Verdict: The way to make this tea enjoyable (for me) is to use lots of leaf and lots of sugar. Which basically makes me draw the conclusion that it’s not very good quality.
