Yum, the tea smells like one of those vanilla nut lattés that they used to serve at Starbucks before they got all cheap and crappy. With teas that are a mix of more than one kind (in this case black tea and oolong) it’s hard to determine what the steeping parameters should be (Adagio’s are always vague at best) so to be on the safe side I went with what I’d usually do for the lighter tea (it’s a dark oolong so about 90°C).

The flavour is nice and quite bold with the hazelnut being especially noticeable. The oolong gives it a bit of sweetness as the tea cools and the vanilla smooths out some of the harsher notes from the Irish Breakfast, so it all works together pretty well.

When I finally get around to placing another Adagio order, I have to restock this one. It is a tasty treat :)

I haven’t actually bought anything from Adagio in ages – their international shipping rates are ridic expensive (we’re talking $30 min in shipping alone).

Geez! That is ridiculous!

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
