[Thai Chai, Assam Melody, Gunpowder]
Upon opening the Clint Barton blend bag, I was greeted with my favorite of all aromas of tea: a chai burst. Once your olfactory tries to order everything, I became a bit muddled because there’s so much going on (which isn’t particularly a negative). Hot is wonderful, as it cools down the flavor does change. I adore Thai Chai, but soon the Gunpowder takes a hold. I added some milk to the cup to soften the flavor. (I have this strange aftertaste I don’t like. I taste the Gunpowder blend above all else.)

I had a long day at uni and when I returned home I saw my package from Adagio. I was so happy and knew exactly what I wanted: to try Bilbo Baggins blend. The scent of the blend is sweet and candied. All three blends (Irish breakfast, hazelnut, and cream) can be tasted wonderfully, although cream seems to take a stand and makes this blend a bit rich (which I found soothing). This tea needs no milk or sugar, it’s perfect all on its own. This tea can be comparable to comfort food, it is a comforting tea, like snuggling in a comfy bed in winter. A perfect dessert tea.
