drank Oriental Spice by Adagio Teas
558 tasting notes

Just got this tea in the mail today along with Adagio’s Cream tea. I have been craving a Chai/Spice tea and had to try a cup right away.

I boiled 2 cups of water, kept it boiling as I steeped two teaspoons of tea for 5 minutes and then removed from heat and added 1/2 cup of whole milk and 2 teaspoons of brown sugar. I stirred it up and poured a cup.

The aroma is sweet and spicy, even through my allergy stuffed sinuses. (I don’t know what I’m allergic to in the bitter cold we’re getting here, but that’s another story). The taste is sweet, I can taste the black tea and the spices, although I can’t really pick them out individually. I enjoy this mix, it tastes like a lighter spice version of some of the chais I enjoy. Maybe I’ll try this tea black, but adding milk and sugar to it really compliment it.

I haven’t tried it w/ oriental spice, but I love their chai blended w/ an equal part cream. Was this your intention in purchasing the 2 together?

I read that cream blended well with other flavored tea. I wanted it mainly to mix with some of my tisanes from Teavana, but yes, I do want to try it with the Oriental Spice.

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
