drank Christmas by Adagio Teas
257 tasting notes

I’ve had this tea twice now…first in a large 4 cup pot and the second time in an single cup brew. Its “OK”. Its actually rather dull. You can see the spices in the mix, but about the only thing coming through is a hint of orange peel. The clove and cinnamon are just “ehh”. I’m not much impressed by the black tea either…it doesn’t have any character…in fact that’s the issue all around; the tea lacks character.
It will serve its purpose, something warm to drink on a cold winter day, but I’ll not be excited about it…and I won’t be rationing it out to make it last.

I’m not much active on Steepster because I haven’t been trying a lot of different tea lately. I have been buying M.T. Wendell’s Cheericup Ceylon because it is my favorite. That said, gifts of tea drop in every once in awhile and I try to bring my impressions here.
I am unashamedly stealing this rating description from Morgana.
