This is my first pu erh, and looking back I probably should have tried an unflavored tea to base my opinion off something. Oh, well. I was a bit intimidated by the smell of this tea in the package, but I’m glad I took the chance. This tea is coming in close second to Earl Grey Moonlight. On my first steep I did 6 minutes instead of the recommended 5 and added very little sugar, I got a very earthy and chocolate taste. It was strong , but very smooth. My second go round I only steeped for 3 minutes and added double the sugar. I found orange and the chocolate calmed down a bit. It’s making me a bit sleepy.

Flavors: Chocolate, Earth, Orange, Sweet

Seriously very nice. The bergamot is sharp without being too aggressive and lovely floral highlights of lavender with a mild black tea that has just enough body to carry it through. Adding milk feels like a desecration, but I often to do anyways. Creamy and dreamy.

Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Lavender

drank Vanilla Green by Adagio Teas
856 tasting notes

Finished this one off tonight! I really enjoyed this tea. It has a nice flavor. The vanilla is creamy and compliments the green. The green tea is slightly vegetal and sweet. The vanilla is subtle but you can still tell that it’t there. I like that I can taste the green before the vanilla flavor.

Added 1t of sugar. Very fruity. I wouldn’t say this reminds me of any specific fruit, but I can taste the apple pieces.

Never really tried Earl Grey before and am usually a fan of really sweet teas, so I guess it’s no surprise I needed to add a little sugar to this :) But overall I love the flavor and may try some milk with it next time :)

drank White Blueberry by Adagio Teas
9 tasting notes

A friend at work let me sample this – I’m drinking right now! I’m going to hold off on rating, since I can hardly taste anything. I’m not currently an avid fan of white tea, but I have had some very delicious varieties before. Therefore, I don’t think the issue is that I’m just not used to the delicate nature of white tea. I followed the brewing instructions and used the right amount of water at the right temperature, and I added a dash of honey. I’m about halfway through the cup now, and I’m only tasting the honey so far, with a faint aftertaste that might be blueberry flavor if I squint. I should also note that this was a sachet that I used, and not loose tea. I was under the impression that sachets were of comparable quality to loose tea, but I could be wrong. From some of the other tasting notes, I’m seeing that this is yummy iced; maybe I’ll try it that way next time!

I’m not sure if vanilla mixes well with tea or not, but for this tea the answer is no. Sure vanilla smells good but when paired up with a dark woodsy oolong it just doesn’t blend well. I was unable to drink the entire cup that I brewed of this tea, but I was able to drink some of it.

drank Peach Oolong by Adagio Teas

Out of the oolongs that adagio has that I have bought this has been the best thus far. I really like the dark oolong taste paired up with the peach notes in this tea. Brews dark, taste strong, smells great.

I only got to drink two cups of this because my best friend loves grapefruit and when I brewed this she really liked it so I gave it away, however I remember it quite well. The oolong flavor in this tea keeps its integrity while being present in the midst of a grapefruit flavor that is identifiable. I found this tea to taste quite well, but it wasn’t my favorite.

This was the worst oolong that I got from Adagio teas and I hope it stays at that position because I wouldn’t want anything worse. The natural almond flavor that is added (however it is added as well) ruins the oolong taste in this tea. Maybe I had a bad batch or something but it was quite repulsive- enough so that I threw it out.

Added 1t of sugar. The apple cinnamon flavor comes through making it seem more like an apple cider than a chai.

drank Summer Rose by Adagio Teas
219 tasting notes

Monthly TTB club.

I like floral teas, including rose, but I’m not sure how I feel about rose black teas. The worst of them taste like soap to me, and I haven’t found one I love, but I’m still interested in trying different brands. This one was on the better end of the spectrum. The base was light and smooth, and the rose flavor was distinct but not overwhelming. I didn’t notice the lemon flavor that other tasters have mentioned. If anything though, I think this was a little too light. I’ll probably try overleafing this and maybe see how it blends, before I make up my mind on it, though.

drank Gingerbread by Adagio Teas
380 tasting notes

I’m really loving this one. The gingerbread flavour is so good. I didn’t follow the steeping instructions completely (only steeped 3mins instead of 5mins) and I’m really glad I didn’t do the 5mins. I think that would have been too much. But either way, I really like the flavour of this one. It’s so nice! It makes me want to eat a gingerbread cookie!
Milk and a tiny bit of rock sugar added to taste.

Got a queasy tum-tum? This is your tea. Quell those rumbles and sip something lemony and delightful. Possibly with a few Marias brand cookies.

From the aromas of mango to the after note of mango, this tea is a winner in my book when wanting something with a subtle sweet taste and a kick of mango. It’s even good when it’s cooled down a bit.

These teas are meant to be enjoyed without additional additives. To add anything taints the flavor of the tea, overwhelms the otherwise subtle sweetness and burst of vanilla swimming throughout each sip.

Creamy and subtly sweet, reminiscent of honey with a splash of hazelnut as an aftertaste.

The notes in this tea are so subtle, you might as well be drinking plain water.
