Tea from early this morning. I enjoyed it. There was a great malty flavor to it that I loved. There was also a general all around richness to it. Shame I only bought the sample size!

drank Candy Apple by Adagio Teas
394 tasting notes

I have decided that I dislike this tea. Not because of anything to do with the tea itself, but I realize that I don’t like apple teas that have a black base. They are okay, but I definitely prefer when they have a different base to them. Not sure if I’m going to finish this one or just toss what’s left… maybe I"ll try mixing it with something instead.

drank Thai Chai by Adagio Teas
75 tasting notes

How i got it: Tried it last night while having supper with my cousin’s family

Experience: Cool! We now have an Adagio shop in Santiago, so this opens a new world of possibilites about tea. Well, i have a well supplied cupboard, so i only joined the trip there to guide, hehe. Anyway, i got invited to try this one. Coconut, ginger and an unknown herbal/spiced scent are the main players in the aroma side, while this resonates in the taste, too. The coconut and ginger mix is enjoyable (spiciness included), and their flavors were very natural, but they were a bit overpowering, so the tea got the background and was almost imperceptible. Reminded me of Stash’s Cononut Mango, but this time serious ginger-y. Medium intensity, good duration, relaxing blend. Very good start in my experiences with Adagio, I’d say.

Would i buy it?: It could be a nice addition to mix things up a bit

I have never smelled an apricot. If they smell like coconuts somebody let me know. There’s definitely a fruity taste in there somewhere, but it’s faint. I dislike coconuts :( and this tea gave me coconut breath. I might try it iced, I can tolerate the taste if there isn’t a smell poking me in my sinuses.
Edit: My mum says that it does taste a little like apricot. So maybe it’s just me. Although it was cold. So who knows.

drank Vanilla Green by Adagio Teas
19 tasting notes

I got this as a free sample when I mentioned that I liked the Vanilla Oolong. While I’m a fan of vanilla, as others have pointed out I’m not sure it works with green tea all that well. The vanilla flavor is very hard to even detect under the very bright green tea flavor. Not horrible, but not enough of one or the other to stand out.

Flavors: Tea, Vanilla

I normally find earl grey to be soapy, but found that the creme versions help cut that, alongside some milk. I like this most in the morning, even more so now that it is spring and the citrus reflects the freshness of spring.

drank Vanilla Oolong by Adagio Teas
1648 tasting notes

Thanks for sending this as a freebie from your sale, Ali! I think this one gets a bad rep over on these Steepster ratings. Maybe others are just not liking the Formosa oolong because they aren’t accustomed to it. I like Formosa once in a while for a change. This particular oolong isn’t bad but the vanilla isn’t exactly lovely real bean pods or anything. Usually Adagio is good with their flavoring. I can’t remember if this is close to the vanilla black tea they have. But rather than actual vanilla flavoring it’s really just a slight sweet flavor. But with two teaspoons the flavor is deep and roasty with a deep burgundy liquid. It definitely looks delicious.

drank Cream by Adagio Teas
404 tasting notes

Cream is quite a name for a tea. Simple but so easy to mess up. I can definitely taste it, the cream flavor, but I’m also picking up maple syrup (the pure kind not that nasty fake crap). The base is quite woodsy. Kinda twiggy. Twiggy being branches, twigs.

drank Chestnut by Adagio Teas
394 tasting notes

After another lackluster cup of Grape Expectations, I decided to give up on it and toss the remaining 2-3 PS that I had left. I then decided to finally try this tea as I have put it off for a while now.

I bought a few years back a hazelnut tea from The Tea Haus in London. The only way that I actually enjoyed it was if I mixed it with the Chocolate Cream tea that I got from them too. So because of that, I wasn’t expecting too much.

This tea, however, is nothing like that tea in which I’m comparing it to. This tea is very nice. I love the chestnut flavour and how it’s almost… creamy? Maybe that’s because I added milk, but either way, I’m very much enjoying it and I know I will enjoy what I have left of this one, which isn’t too much.

Would I get this one again? Maybe. But it’s not one I would keep in stock in my house.

drank Cherry Green by Adagio Teas
19 tasting notes

Had a sample of this at Adagio Teas today. You may be detecting a theme in my notes: I like fruit teas. This was nice, not too sweet and a lovely tart flavor. I think if I were making it at home I’d probably add a little sugar. Would be nice on ice, very refreshing.

Flavors: Cherry, Tart, Tea

Preparation

Even with no added sugar at all, this is a sweet, fruity tea. I had a sample of it at Adagio Teas today.The flavor was good, with the fruit strong but not overwhelming the rooibos. I bet it would be nice on ice.

Flavors: Fruity, Rooibos, Sweet

Not My Cup Of Tea #6

I thought this might be a good afternoon snack type of tea and so I brewed it up at lunch time in one of my Nordic mugs, stuck it in my brand new Davids Tea Carry Travel Mug and then sat it at my desk until I was ready for it a couple of hours later. I’m not sure if the tea was bad or if it was the new Carry Travel Mug but something tasted like soap and plastic when I finally got round to drinking this… There was a decent amount of hibiscus, a touch of coconut and a whole ton of soap and plastic…. blegh! Back into the box this one goes!!!

update… ok, I’ve brewed something else in the Travel Mug and I’m going to admit, some of the plastic taste seems to have come directly from it…. BUT the majority seems to be the tea… oh well… double boo on the plastic tasting David’s carry travel tea mug tho!!

Maddy Barone

Yeeou. I haven’t had trouble with any of my DAVID’s teaware. Hopefully the plastic-y taste will go away. :(

beelicious

I’ve never had issues either until now!! Hopefully a really good soak helps get rid off the plastic taste… I’ve definitely noticed the new carry travel tea mugs are not the same quality as the timolinos.

Tasty morning cuppa of cream Earl Grey.

Let this one cool far too much before drinking it, but oh well.

I feel like I didn’t get enough flavour from this one… Not sure what I did wrong… I’ll have to try this one again.

When I went to order this tea, it was unavailable as an individual purchase but available as part of the “earth blends” set – because, as any good Cappy knows, you’re an earth sign!

The tea itself seemed a little intimidating at first, because most black teas and I have a contentious relationship. However, the white tea and vanilla buffer/mellow it a bit, and the coconut (more so than the vanilla for me) adds just the right amount of sweetness. I let it cool down a bit before I drank it and it was simply refreshing and slightly energizing – this might be my new morning cup of tea!

drank Earl Grey Lavender by Adagio Teas
341 tasting notes

I gave my local yarn store a bunch of tea that had been in my tea cupboard that I had acquired but weren’t to my taste (mainly, because ginger… ew). And one of the employees offered me a cup of this in thanks.

It was not the best early grey lavender I’ve ever had, but I also suspect it was brewed too hot because the lavender got a bit lost in the flavor. I have my own source for earl grey lavender tea that I love so I won’t go out of my way to try this again, but if it’s offered, it’s a nice cuppa.
