I have teabags of this that I really enjoy traveling with because the tin was full of individually wrapped bags. The flavor is super mild, sweet, and floral. I steeped this for 2 minutes for the first 3 infusions, and 3 minutes for the next 2, 4 minutes for the third. Definitely a soft flavor, but very tasty.

Flavors: Flowers, Honey

200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

This is a delicious tea! There is a definite mild scent to it that is unlike most other oolongs I have tried. I taste florals, peaches, and a definite honey note. I am a big fan, and look forward to the new few steeps!

This one is a bit strange. First very hot sip was downright gross. Once it was warm, like the temperature of a good hot chocolate, it was like drinking a light minty chocolate drink! Not bad at all!

Smokey fish taste overwhelms my first sip. For the first time EVER, I am dumping the rest of my cup. This will be given away.

I was amazed to realize exactly how much chocolate is in this tea, as evidenced by how chocolate “saucey” it was when it was done steeping. If you are one who sometimes gets lazy about dumping the used tea and washing your steeper, making a point to remember with this is a MUST if you want to get it easily clean.

That said, I enjoy how chocolatey it is. I wish it had a bit more spice, because I can also taste the orange pretty well. As it is now, it does taste like a chocolate orange, being about 60% chocolate and 38% orange and just the tiniest bit of spice I taste. It is good, I will enjoy finishing it, but I don’t think I enjoy it enough to repurchase. I’d just drink hot chocolate instead.

I really enjoyed this, though it isn’t particularly nuanced. I love oolong, and I love berries, so this was an obvious choice for me. I most appreciated that it didn’t seem too over-flavored, as many of Teavana’s teas tend to be, so the tea was the main event still. This is rare with Teavana stuff!

drank Coconut by Adagio Teas
326 tasting notes

This is very coconutty, but falls a bit flat. I don’t think it is due to the flavor, but I am starting to not love the black tea base used in these flavored teas as I branch out and try other brands. Flavored blacks used to be all I drank…I think I just prefer oolongs and pu erhs more. But if you enjoy other flavors that Adagio has to offer, this one is a solid choice if you also enjoy creamy coconut!

This tastes like liquid cinnamon, very very similar to the spiced apple rooibos from Teavana. I love it, because I am nutty for cinnamon, but it definitely isn’t for the faint of heart! I recommend toning it down a bit and making it a bit more like dessert through using a little milk.

This is like drinking sweet cinnamon. I am totally, and completely fine with that. Admittedly, it would be considered to bold and in-your-face for many. But I am a cinnamon fiend!! It isn’t the most unique flavor ever, Bengal Spice celestial seasonings tastes just like this, so I doubt I will repurchase.

This is a good everyday oolong for me. It is definitely fruity combined with a mineraly taste, and it holds up well to multiple steepings. Oolong is my favorite tea to have unflavored, and I am glad to have found this one for my day to day oolong fix!

I am a 29 year old return-to-college student working on my certification in Early Childhood Ed, who discovered the (incredibly vast) world of tea about 3 years ago. In that time, I have learned so much, and am hoping to learn even more by joining the steepster community.

In my non-tea times, I am usually watching netflix while writing lesson plans, cuddling my two kitties, or trying to find new things to do in a town that is sometimes a bit limited!
