Okay so…this tea came out kinda perfumey when i tried it but looking back at the website, I see now that a sample pack makes about 10 cups >_>. Oops…I only made 4 cups from my sample. It IS easy to over-steep but since it was still tasty and SO INEXPENSIVE!! I won’t write off Adagio just yet.

drank Grand Earl Grey by Octavia Tea
9 tasting notes

This was the first earl grey I’ve ever tried so I’m not exactly sure how earl grey is supposed to taste but this was very enjoyable. As with every Octavia tea I’ve had it never went bitter even when oversteeped. I tried another earl grey from adagio later on but I didn’t enjoy it as much since it seemed perfume-y and went bitter very easily. Maybe Octavia set my standards too high.

The rose petals in this tea may make me bias ;3 but this is the only “desserty” kind of tea I’ve ever enjoyed.

drank Jasmine Pearl by Octavia Tea

So smooth but with a perfect balance of jasmine…not too strong and not too weak. There was no astringency even when I over steeped it.

This tea is one of the best I’ve ever had. The additives accentuate instead of overpowering the oolong. It’s floral and “citrusy” but not in an artificial way that makes it obnoxious. It’s so…perfect.

I received this in a sampler pack as a Christmas gift, so I wouldn’t have chosen this for myself but it was very green full leaves so it looked high quality like most teas from Octavia. This would probably be considered a “pearls before swines” situation because to me this tasted the way that fish smells.

This tea blend started off my loving relationship with loose leaf tea. It’s so warm and comforting, not too overpowering with cinnamon spice death overlord attack. I’m trying to find a less expensive alternative to this because this is their ONLY tea I like, but no luck so far. Dang you Teavana with your one good tea and your cute overpriced teawares!!! OH and those samples in the store that are sooooo yummy are PACKED with tea so they can sell the product more easily. Like 6 times more than they tell you that you need at home. Tricksy little hobbitses >_>

Watered down cherry cough syrup. Completely overpowered the tea taste. Gross!

This tastes like watered down apple juice with a hint of banana and chocolate…literally. Why…just why?
