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.
Flavors: Artificial, Chocolate
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.
Flavors: Artificial, Astringent, Chocolate
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.
Flavors: Apple, Caramel
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.
Flavors: Hazelnut, Strawberry
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.
Flavors: Coconut, Pineapple
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.
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.
Flavors: Cherry Wood, Drying, Mineral, Roasted, Toasted Rice, White Grapes
I wasn’t super impressed with this one. I would say there is a general berry flavor, but even cold steeped (which is usually pretty reliable at letting the flavor shine) it was soft and didn’t mask the unpleasant edge that Adagio’s black tea base tends to have for me. Much better fruit blends offered by this company.
When I saw this described as a strawberry creme-saver, I knew I had to get some. Well, A++, exactly as described. When I opened the pouch, it was like POOF! STRAWBERRY CREMESAVER IN YOUR FACE. It’s a very pretty blend, and Adagio’s image of it matched my sample pouch very well.
The tea steeps surprisingly dark for a white tea, though I’m guessing it’s mostly due to the inexplicable rooibos. Some of the strawberry smell is lost when it’s steeped, but it’s surprisingly present in the flavor. The cream is lost in the flavor, though. I think it’s overpowered by the bite (it’s a soft bite, but bite nonetheless) of the strawberry.
I would love to try this with real cream at some point in the future, but cream just isn’t something I stock regularly. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to buy some more.
Flavors: Cream, Strawberry
