Firstly, this tea sounds like it’s trying to be fancy. It smells nicely like cocoa. The flavour is slightly malty, with mostly baked bread. When it cools, the bread comes out stronger.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Cocoa, Malt

I am really enjoying my new foray int4o mate. I had no idea it made such a great iced tea, which is what I did with this. Fruity and fresh, it goes well with a bit of sweetener.

Preparation

Try it with honey, if you haven’t already. :)

Coldbrewed this overnight and had a glass this evening.

My little baggie of this had a lot of broken leaf, which is only to be expected since it’s been inside a TTB for a while. That led to the coldbrew tasting strongly of sencha and not quite so strongly of lemon. I added some lemongrass to the brew as well, but I don’t think it made things much more lemony.

I added some agave nectar to the remainder in the pitcher. We’ll see how that changes things.

Since I’m getting summer rain, figured it was time to have hot tea. It smells nicely like lavender, and a little like a beverage I had last time I was attended a Faire. I like earl grey, but the lavender is a bit on the strong side. Otherwise, I get a mild, creamy bergamot flavour. Might decided to use this for baked goods at some point.

Flavors: Bergamot, Creamy, Lavender, Vanilla

Not My Cup O’ Tea TTB

I’ve been on the lookout for more herbal teas, so I was excited to find this one in the TTB. Unfortunately, Adagio’s chocolate flavoring is just not for me; too sweet and artificial. I finished my cup, but I wouldn’t drink this again.

Not My Cup O’ Tea TTB

This tea smells sooo good…like freshly-mixed brownie batter! But the taste was a total disappointment: very flat and artificial with an unpleasant astringency to the aftertaste. The addition of a splash of milk made it drinkable, but it was still one of the worst chocolate teas I’ve tried.

Definitely tastes more like caramel apple vs. candy apple. I was surprised I like this tea as much as I do because black tea is not my favorite. It’s just sweet enough, without being too much. Has a nice caramel aftertaste.

I think this herbal is amazing. It tastes exactly like biting into a piece of warm watermelon. I have only had it hot, but I think it would be awesome cold. My husband, who does not like flavored tea at all, even liked the taste of this. I will definitely be repurchasing this one.

(Iced tea version) I don’t usually go in for flavored iced teas, but this mango tea works well as an iced tea. I don’t think it would be a daily drinker, but it would work as an occasional break from plain black iced tea.

I received this in an iced tea sampler from Adagio. This might be a good occasional cup of hot tea, but as an iced tea, the hazelnut and strawberry flavors were overpowering and too sweet for me (I typically drink unsweetened iced black tea). I found myself diluting it with water and cutting the tea with Tazo iced black tea in order to finish the batch.

The reviews I have read for pina colada are mixed, so I was not sure what to expect. I enjoyed the smell as soon as I opened the package. After letting it steep for 7 minutes, I took my first sip. I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed this herbal! It’s not the best I have ever had, but it certainly is not the worst. I didn’t notice a particular flavor overpower another. The pineapple and coconut worked well together. I will definitely consider ordering again.

The dry leaves do smell of cocoa. I got this in a mystery box from Oolong Owl, there were six balls that weighed 4g, so I put them all in my little cast iron pot with about 9oz of just about boiling water and let them steep for four minutes. Wet leaves still smell of cocoa. The brew is very dark, like coffee. The taste is hard to define, but it’s nice. I expected a bitter brew, but it wasn’t bitter at all. The flavor has the faintest bit of cocoa to it, and malt. I am terrible at finding flavors in tea, so all I can say is that this is a nice, smooth cup of black tea that I like and I would consider purchasing in the future. This could definitely go into my morning rotation.

EDIT: Just for the heck of it, I decided to give the leaves another go, and steeped again for about five minutes. The second brew was just as dark and fragrant as the first, but the flavor was what I imagine bongwater tastes like. So I’m not going to do that again.

I’m not too sure how I feel about this one. It’s pretty simple. I don’t usually care for pears because of the texture of them, so I don’t really know if this tea tastes like pears or not… It’s nice, but I don’t think I’d get this one again. It’s got a bit of sweetness to it, but yeah… I dunno.

Dry, this tea kinda smells like root beer barrels. There is a kinda sweet, mild caramel scent when brewed. The flavour is more lightly sweet, with biscuit and caramel notes. As it cools a little, I get hints of fruit. Actually, pretty good.

Got this in a sampler pack, used as a work tea. Polishing it off today, and I don’t think I have reviewed it once. I can’t think of anything to say about it – it’s tea, and it functions ok as work tea, but it really doesn’t stand out.

drank White Cucumber by Adagio Teas

Not sure if it’s ‘cause I over did it with tea leaves or if I steeped too long, but this tea isn’t what I was expecting. I’m not really getting the cucumber flavour at all.

Anyways, I will try again. I think I would use a bit less leaves and steep for maybe only 2 or 2.5minutes. We’ll see.

This is sooooo good. I absolutely love roasted oolongs. I just adore that mineral shale flavor and the taste of embers. It makes for a very natural and ancient feeling gongfu ritual. The dry leaf consists of long curled blackened crimson tendrils. These charred remains smell of char and blackberries. I brewed these up in my ceramic kyusu. Its beginning to crackle and is looking beautiful. The warmed leaf smells of roasted nuts. I washed them once and prepared for brewing. The steeped leaves smell of charcoal and roasted peaches. The flavor was very unique and amazing. The initial sip tasted of cherry wood and minerals. This flavor was very dry, but it ended with a sharp sweet tone. This sweet tone reminds me of white grapes that have been over ripened. This brew stood up well against multiple steepings. The liquor kept a consistent rusted orange. This was a perfect brew for an early morning gongfu session.

It was ok, good for the sake of variety. The coconut smell is a bit too perfumey though.
