New into tea, a friend of mine mentioned adagio a couple weeks ago, and I've been lurking and browsing, then finally joining and ordering.
I visited a local tea shop a couple weeks ago to start my foray into the world of real tea. My husband was not all that supportive at first, as I'm somewhat known to pick up and drop a new interest in a matter of days. But, as my initial tea purchase is already half gone and I'm still drinking...oh my gosh we'll just say countless cups each day, he's warmed to it a bit.
Before having "real tea," the only tea I've really enjoyed in the past has been oolong from Chinese restaurants. The Lipton tea my mother always drank when I was growing up makes me just want to gag it's so bitter. Of the four teas (jade oolong, a fruity green, pearls, and earl grey) I've tried so far, the only one I haven't enjoyed has been the jasmine pearls. I guess while flowers smell good, I just don't want to drink them lol.
Huge thanks to Chris at Adagio for helping me through my email issues (darned RR!) and I can't wait to get my 15 or so samples from fedex today. Looking forward to finding lots more wonderful tasty leaves with y'all.
