This is just a staple tea in my cupboard now. My husband knows I love this one so much that he purchased some for me on Valentines day. This tea is amazingly soothing on the throat. It has notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. There is also a type of herbal, bark-like quality that I actually really enjoy. A+ everyday store tea. A small note though, Target is usually the best for acquiring this for me; the price is always lower than other stores and they usually have coupons. At Sprout’s this week this was $5 a box while the Target price was only ~ $3.40.

A wonderful black tea. It tastes mainly of hazelnut, vanilla/cream, and baked goods. The base is not overwhelming, but plays a major part in the flavor of the tea. I still haven’t tried it with milk, but I bet it would be excellent.

I haven’t had this tea in a looooong time. I actually have to admit that I am letting a lot of my Adagio stock just sit in my cupboard…There are quite a few that I’m not really sold on (Finnick and Stiles mainly).
This tea really smells nice and conjures up images of berry baked goods. It is best with milk. The base can tend to get bitter if the water is too hot; so watch out!

I’ve already decided this will be on my next adagio order. We drank ‘farewell ponds’ during the last season of the Dr. The Tardis blend will be next. :)

I think that I got mine before the promotion with an extra ounce added, so you’re getting even more bang for your buck on this one!

I need to get around to ordering this tea!

That just reminds me, I had a blend I wanted to concoct…just gotta come up with a name for it…

I love the ship thing too where you can get 2 teas for $8. Dang Adagio and their good ideas, you’ll have all my tea budget! lol

drank Dong Ding by Naivetea

What a wonderful tea! I had forgotten that I had this one. This has many roasted, bread like notes mixed with an almost herbaceous sweetness. There are also some underlying green notes that I really love. As an introduction to both dong ding oolongs and Naivetea in general, this is really wonderful.

drank Opus Rouge Rooibos by Teavana

Bubblegum tea! lol I had just a bit leftover from the 2oz of this I purchased recently. I really didn’t enjoy it as much as I could remember. But it is still massively fruity and has a punch of hibiscus. I like hibiscus, so it’s great for me! A good tea to share with non-tea drinking types.

Ahhh. Today has been perfect. I am finally feeling a bit better and I don’t have much coursework to go through. Tomorrow is “experimental archaeology day” so it should be fun! But today I’m relaxing with this and A Feast for Crows.
This tea tastes much more floral than usual today. It isn’t really a bad thing. If it was any bit more pronounced and/or soapy it would ruin the whole thing. But it is a tea that has grown on me and I’ll probably keep as a staple.

So this bloom seems much stronger than the last one I had. There are far more tart, fruity, and floral notes to enjoy and overall it is more, hmm, juicy. I think that this could be a really great tea if they had balanced it a bit more. Yes, it is beautiful. Yes, the white tea is there. But I guess it is that fine line between flavored teas being overly flavored and masking the awesomeness of their bases and the underwhelming flavor of weak blends that really makes a tea great. In this case, the white base is just okay. It tends to be a bit touchy with the temp. and it can be strong when compared to what it should be complimenting. Overall, decent blooming tea. I’m taking off some points because, while the first bloom was really wonderful, the others I’ve had were just not as good.

drank Lavender Dreams by Teavana

So I went straight from having some kind of stomach problem to having a cold. I hate that about school. But this tea and mint have really been getting me through the week. Both are powerful when it comes to relaxing me. I can also tend to get stress headaches and drinking lavender tea in general helps with that. I’m not sure if it is the herb itself, the smell, or just that I’m making tea, but I’ll take it. Today this smells a bit like raisins, sugar, lavender, and something I can’t quite pinpoint; maybe other floral notes. Beautiful either way.
edit I’m starting to think that the true value of this tea shines in that it could easily be steeped 3+ times. All 3 of my 16oz cups have been equally flavorful.

drank Mint Medley by Bigelow

Wow, I haven’t logged this one in a really, really long time. The tea itself still tastes very fresh despite being so old. I have been feeling really terrible since yesterday and this is the first tea I’ve had in probably two days because I was worried about strong flavors. This is perfect for today though as I’m trying to get some more liquid in my system. It is minty, fresh, and very soothing.

So happy to hear you’re enjoying some Mint Medley! Hoping you feel better soon.

Thanks for the note! Having a nice cuppa this actually really helped. :)
