drank Honeybush Mango by Adagio Teas
371 tasting notes

I’d never had honeybush before and I’m really curious to try it as a standalone. This tea’s nice and sweet and mangoey. At first I steeped it about 5 minutes. It was kinda bizarre: it tasted like what I’d imagine a mango-scented lotion would taste like. Well, one evening I was so busy that I didn’t hear the timer go off so it steeped probably close to 10 minutes and it really mellowed the flavor in a pleasant way. This one’s growing on me. NE but with potential for more…

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

I’m quite loose when it comes to tea prep. I also ended up using Steepster to find my “daily” teas which I mostly have accomplished.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
