drank Sleeping Dragon by Adagio Teas
98 tasting notes

So first a story of how I received this tea. Today I had my last final for class where I got certified in unarmed stage combat and broadsword, as well as getting certified with recommendation for rapier and dagger. Since I did so well and because I rocked all my other finals, I decided to get myself a little gift. The Adagio I frequent just got in several Kyusu and I figured if I’m gonna reward myself it might as well be tea related. So I went in, saw some of my friends who work there and picked out a nice Kyusu for myself. To my surprise it ended up being expensive, $136 to be exact. To make me feel better about paying so much, since I didn’t have any points or anything, my friends decided to throw in a lot of samples. This happened to be one of them and it has been one I wanted for a long time.

Now to the tea….

Smell Dry: sort of sweet and veggitabally.

Wet Smell: like wet leaves after fresh rain. There is still some sweetness to the smell as well as a little smoke.

Taste: Rather lovely. There is a mix of taste similar to gunpowder and dragonwell.

Well, to start, my name is Matt. I got into loose leaf tea my sophomore year in college. I was drinking some lipton tea in my room when I started thinking to myself that there has to be something more then just bagged tea. So I decided to do a web search and found out about loose leaf (you would think that this would have been an obvious thing but surprisingly it was not). I stumbled across a local tea cafe called Argo tea and decided to try it out. Long story short, I fell in love. From this one store I have started to branch out to all different types of tea from several different stores.

My favorit tea is very hard to choose since I like pretty much everything there is that I have tried. I have recently started getting into pu’erh teas, which is getting to be interesting. I am always looking for new a greater tastes when it comes to tea and am trying to better express my experiences with tea.

Aside from tea I am an actor in the Chicago area. I do mostly theatre and various film projects through out the Midwest. I recently started doing Voiceover work, which I have to say is very fun and easy going.

My number ratings are more random then anything. Since I have no idea half the time when I move the slider on the happy face meter what number will be showing up.
