Discovering Adagio teas, episode #10 (out of 12).

Wonderful aroma out of the zip bag, reminding me of old leather and wet tree bark.
After steeping the leather subsides, but there’s a strong wood barrel character, hot soil after the rain starts, maltiness, mellow pipe tobacco, raisins and Autumn leaves. Really unique and exquisite.
The taste is very mellow and it unwinds magnificently. There is no sweetness, bitterness nor astringency, just the rich and complex bouquet.
Really wonderful tea.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Bark, Leather, Malt, Oak, Raisins, Tobacco, Wet Earth

I drink tea almost all the time.

However, my tea drinking can be divided into two main categories.

1. I work a lot at my computer and when I work, I need to always have tea at hand. That’s when I drink bag varieties, mostly black blends, often corporate ones. They need to be at least drinkable, of course, but I don’t focus on the taste much, though I don’t go below a certain level…

2. When I read (and read a lot) or when I’m just relaxing, I savor tea. That’s when the better varieties come into play, that’s when I use leafs instead of bags, that’s when I really focus on what I’m drinking.

I’m Polish, temporarily living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
