I got a sample of this tea from my friend Tina and I’m really happy that I did. I really enjoy it. There is a really strong and pleasant smell when it’s not yet brewed. I like that it’s not overly sweet and it doesn’t have any bitterness to it either. The mix of chocolate and Ceylon really works well for me.
I ordered a sample, because I was curious to see how this ingredients work together and wanted to try something different than masala chai. I have to say I wasn’t really impressed, since the cinnamon and cloves were so overpowering I couldn’t taste any hints of vanilla. I think that the rooibos is too mild for so much clove and cinnamon, even though the spices are the main ingredients of chai.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Spicy
An amazing tea Sample two from amanda"soggeyenderman"wilson
When I smell the leaves dry, I smell flowers.
When I smell the leaves wet, the smell is intensified.
When I smell the brewed tea, I smell sweet flowers.
When I taste the brewed tea, I taste sweet flowers that remind me of peaches.
I rate this a 100 because it tastes really good.
Many thanks :)

I received a sample of this with my order. I’ve been trying to branch out and I’ve been wanting to get into oolongs for a while. This tea smells extremely sweet in the bag, and the sweetness smell only mellows out a little when brewed. This concerned me slightly since I’m not a huge fan of very sweet teas, but the sweetness is not unbearable. It’s sweeter than I’m used to, but I like the nuttiness so I’ll just have to get used to the sweetness. I’m not sure that I would drink this all the time, but it’s nice to have around for when I want something different. I drank one cup plain (steeped as the notes say) and left the rest brewing. I drank the second cup with a tiny bit of milk. The longer steep time seems to bring out the oolong base more, and the milk makes the almond flavor pop.
Flavors: Almond, Marzipan, Nuts, Nutty, Sweet
Talk about watery tea! I was excited to try this since I like the flavor of Earl Grey, but right out of the bag the scent was cloying. Like those citrus air fresheners, but with some vanilla added in. Luckily the tea doesn’t taste the same when brewed—in fact, it hardly tastes at all! There are some notes of Earl Grey flavor, but the tea turns out the same watery way no matter how much I use or how long I steep it. Overall, kind of a disappointment.
Very cozy and comforting and the spice is well balanced. It is a good tea that won’t distract from your book (or whatever else you need to be focused on). Great for people who want something enjoyable that doesn’t require conscious attention to enjoy fully/properly. Excellent for reading/studying.
Very nice subtle blueberry flavor when made as cold brewed iced tea. I had my dad, a very traditional black unsweetened ice tea drinker, try this thinking he wouldn’t care for it. He liked it so much he asked for more. I know that might not mean much for those who don’t know my dad but it speaks volumes for this tea.
No notes yet. Add one?
I have been wanting to try this for a while to compare it to Tealuxe’s Creme de la Earl Grey and finally got the opportunity today when my MIL brought some over. I excitedly opened the package and inhaled my first sniff and was disappointed. The smell was artificial in an unpleasant way. I went ahead and brewed a cup and the taste of the tea was not as bad as the smell. It was not bad, just not nearly as good to me as the one from Tealuxe (which I personally adore). I am glad I sampled this before ordering.
I expected something a little more decadent, what with all of the hype Adagio gives in their description. Really, it’s a black oolong flavored vanilla. That’s about it. However, don’t you ever underestimate “mild”! It’s still pretty tasty, and is great for adding to other teas to either bump up the flavor of the black tea base, or to calm down some feisty tea flavors. So far I’ve mixed it with my Cocoa Canella mate from DavidsTea as well as their Blueberry Jam, and I’ll be mixing it with the last of my Buttered Rum as to stretch that tea out a little more. I’m pretty excited to be trying it out with my Gingerbread black tea from Teavana, and probably my Chestnut from Adagio. Thinking I’ll look for some cinnamon sticks and break them down in my mortar and pestle to add to that… Seriously, what a versatile little tea! Probably going to order some blackberry black tea from Adagio to go with it too!
