//Story Time
I went ahead and ordered some sampler pouches and a few custom blend tins from Adagio. Totally didn’t need to as I still have plenty of tea to drink, but the samplers have many teas I still need to try and would be nice to taste before I blend them.

//Tea Time
This is from an ancient steepster select bag that I just opened. Man I wasn’t expecting there to be full size leafs and blossoms in there; I mean I should have cause the bag was so poofy. The smell and taste reminded me or herbal shops and specifically tension tamer teas. It has this sweet menthol peppery smell. This translates over into the taste, but with even vague undertone flavors of licorice or fennel. It’s actually kinda complex with the flavor changing as it cools to revel a sweet and smooth mouth feel and pleasant herbaceous pepper. Biggest thing I noticed as well is just how smooth and sweet this tea is. Most herbal blends tend to have that bitter medicinal taste, but this has none of that. Maybe it’s cause it isn’t shredded or fannings so it doesn’t over extract the leafs? Overall this is a very pleasant tea that is much smoother and sweeter than most herbal teas.

Flavors: Anise, Herbaceous, Menthol, Pepper, Smooth, Sweet

I have been drinking and makeing tea for me and my mom for most of my life and have been starting to get into loose teas.

I like fruity, spicy, strong teas, Chai’s, Black, and Rooibos. I have recently been trying and getting into Oolongs…

Just love it and might keep as a staple
Really liked it, and makes a above average cup
Is good, but might not have a lot of complexity or wow factor. Is pretty average
It’s ok, but not great. Might need added ingredients or tweaking, and is below average.
Would only if nothing else was available. Would not recommend to someone.
Below 50
Bad tea is bad
