Monthly TTB Club
ThainofBuckland sent me a box with several “Dr. Who” themed Adagio Custom Blends. I decided to try this one first because I have been craving a good chai (I sadly drank everything in my cupboard), and I have yet to try any smoky teas, so it would be an interesting experience. I was a little wary after opening the bag since it smelled strongly of smoke, cardamom, and something sweet which turned out to be vanilla. The brewed tea smelled very similar. The first sip was lighter than I was expecting. This tea actually makes me think of the Tardis traveling trough the vortex trailing smoke. It’s a very unique experience. Happily, the cardamom, which I tend not to be a huge fan of blends in nicely with the smokiness. I think in the end, though, this is just to smokey for my tastes. I’ll probably try blending it with a couple things before I make up my mind for sure, but I don’t think Lapsang Souchong is really for me.
Flavors: Cardamon, Smoke, Tea
