Thanks to Cavocorax for sending me this along with a bunch of other Adagio teas to try!

Decided to have this this morning as I watched a couple more episodes of Hannibal, season 2.
This show grosses me out so bad!! Awesome.

The tea…..not sure why but I’m getting coffee bean taste. It reminds me of Davidstea’s Chocolate Rocket minus the raspberries and with some cinnamon.

No one else has mentioned the presence of coffee beans so I must be mad. I even thought I saw half a coffee bean in the dry mix. Losing it!

So all in all, it was an enjoyable cup of tea but not one I’d buy. I think I’d prefer a tastier base.

This seemed a bit watery, though I definitely used lots of leaf!

Thanks for letting me try it, Cavo!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
