Did not like this one. I love rooibos tea, but for some reason this was not good to me. I tried it twice. Once with nothing added and another time with a little sugar. It tasted and smelled like wet wood. I just could not get passed it.
127 Tasting Notes
Wow…love it. I can taste everything that is in it. After reading the reviews I was skeptical so I ordered a sample. I might have to order a whole tin. My new night time tea.
Well, this is the last chai to taste in the sample box. I was not very impressed. All I tasted was cloves, and no other spices. Vey mild other then that. There was no spice to it….sadly. I was really looking forward to this.
It is a savory tea. I have to be in the mood to drink it. I have 2 oz of it and have used 4 teaspoons of it. I will not buy any more when it is gone.
I love this mixed with Rooibos Chai. It is perfect in the morning. By itself I have to add 2 teaspoons for me to really love it. For me it is a great mixer.
One of my staples. I love the lemon grass. To me it is not too strong but just right. I love drinking this with a little honey and a dash of cream. Its a nice treat at night.
So. I really really wanted to be blown out of the water by this tea. I read all of the reviews on it and wanted to prepare on the stove top. I was a little disappointed with it. I wanted it to be spicier, a little more kick. I had half hot off the stove and the other half chilled over ice. I felt like it was missing something. I still have 2 teaspoons left that I am going to make by the cup instead of stove top.
I decided that I wanted to switch it up a bit. I reused the 2 tablespoons of the chai, but added 1 tablespoon of Teavana’s Rooibos Chai and 5 cardamon pods. I did steep it longer, for almost 15 minutes by itself and 5 minutes with milk. Wow, that hit the spot. I might be buying more, but I have not tried Adagio’s chai yet. I still have the sample packet on the table. We will see….:)
