My son has taken an early interest in tea (which makes his mama proud) so I decided to order the ice cream trio. We’ve spent the last month mixing up fun blends like vanilla with strawberry bits, peppermint cacao chocolate, and chocolate coconut. We ran out of sprinkles early on in our experiments, little man decided to munch on them as he created his blends, so we’ve refilled the glass container a few times already.
Unfortunately Adagio doesn’t sell refills for this set, but you can purchase additional base teas for $2 per sample-size package (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry) and raid your kitchen for new add-ins to fill your jars. The possibilities with this set are endless which is one of the reasons I think it’s so much fun.
You can read the full review on my blog:
This is a comforting sort of cup – it’s nutty and tastes kinda like fall leaves look, although at first taste it’s a bit thin, flavour-wise. A hefty slosh of soymilk helped to balance out the toasted hazlenut notes and left me with something that reminds me vaguely of cookies.
It’s not the cup I expected to get from this tea, but it’s definitely delicious. Better suited to an evening cup than a morning one, though, so I’ll save this for my pre-bed ritual from here on out.
I did use more tea than recommended (3 tsp) so this may account for my mediocre reaction. My first impression was it tasted like Citronella smells. I didn’t like it. I worked to finish it but as I worked on the cup, my dislike lessened and fell into just okay. I notice that I liked it better on the second steep which suggests that I made it too strong. I liked the quality of the leaves themselves and they opened up beautifully. I don’t know if I would go out of my way to purchase it again because citrus based tea isn’t my first like. It came with a sample pack and I’m looking forward to trying the others.
I got this in a swap awhile back and I’ve been waiting to try it for awhile. It’s vegetal but not heavily, I do taste more hay, grass, and overall earthy tones but it’s mellow. This is the first green tea I’ve had (other than some flavored ones from Teavana) that I’ve had and actually enjoyed – thanks Uchinaguchi for the swap & introducing me to new teas I never would have tried on my own!
Flavors: Grass, Hay, Honey, Vegetal
Dry: smells very strongly of orange and chocolate. Instantly reminds me of those chocolate orange balls!
Wet: mostly orange. The smell of chocolate seems to go away here.
Liquor: a dark brown with some orange. The smell of chocolate and orange is more subtle here.
The actual tea has more of an orange taste with the chocolate note hitting at the end before you swallow. It’s pretty interesting. There is also some very slight earthiness from the pu’erh but to me it is very subtle. The tea leaves me with a slightly dry mouth.
Overall I think it’s a decent tea and I like it, but I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to repurchase it.
Flavors: Chocolate, Earth, Orange
It has taken me forever to drink through a bag of 15 tea bags with this tea. I’ve had a love-hate relationship with this tea. At first, I really did not like this tea because it was just a watered down version of a chai tea (milk especially didn’t help. It only added to the watered down-ness of the tea). It wasn’t until recently that I found (as with so many other teas) if I sweetened it with light agave nectar, the taste was what I was looking for. It’s a nice spicy chai tea with a little kick of apple. Turned out to be a great tea for autumn.
Ok, I’ve had this cute little tin of this tea sat in the back of my office desk drawer for nearly 2 months, and I’ve finally got round to trying it.
Made it this morning with a few sachets of sugar and a splash of somebody’s milk (sorry, some other department in the building) and it’s actually really autumnal and lovely. There’s a sort of top note that reminds me slightly of a buttery flapjack, with a mouthfeel that becomes juicy as the apple flavour comes in (and it’s definitely cooked apple, but there’s a touch of sharpness, so it isn’t cloying), and the finish is lingering caramel. A warmth from the cinnamon hums over the blend without bringing masses of spice, and the hint of soft tannin is surprisingly nice. I dunno, I liked it.
Also, tomorrow I have to get up at like 5 to go to the BBC in London to interview some people who are VERY IMPORTANT and I’m utterly terrified. So that’s a thing.
I got this in a swap and I honestly can’t taste the gingerbread flavor at all. My boyfriend also has a small tin of this from the Holiday Cheer set that I gave his parents last year when I visited and that one doesn’t taste gingerbread-y either.
So on the front of being gingerbread flavored, it loses points. But it is still a decent black tea. It has some vanilla-y notes but mostly just tastes like a ceylon. I definitely won’t buy this again but if it comes my way, I’ll still drink it.
Caramel is the first thing you smell when you open this bag f tea. Sweet glorious caramel! before adding anything special, I tried it plain with just your basic sweetener. Sugar. It was nothing special in my books, but when i added my nondairy cream it became a pretty good desert tea!
Right outta the package this tea smells like a really sweet marzipan. after brewing it looses a lot its sweet almond smell but has a beautiful golden-brown liquor. The flavor (if brewed properly) is very smooth with sweet almond notes that come through just enough that its not overpowering. Overall this is an amazing tea and ill defiantly will be purchasing this again!
Flavors: Almond, Nutty, Sweet
Im new to black tea, but from what i can tell this was a good starter tea. It wasn’t to strong and it had a fruity floral taste to it. it wasn’t bitter like i feared it would be. overall a good tea to get if your experementing, but im not sure if i would buy again. i guess we’ll see :)
Flavors: Floral, Fruity
This was my first time with this tea. I ordered a sample to determine whether or not it will join my regular rotation of teas.
The aroma of this tea has the earthy notes that mark a Puerh, but were milder than expected. The strawberry really announced itself as well.
The liqueur found the Puerh tones were indeed muted, and a touch on the creamy side. The aromatic strawberries were practically missing in taste, with the nuttiness of the hazelnuts only really showing up in the aftertaste.
Even when brewed for the recommended time, it comes across as underpowered in taste. I believe I’ll increase both the amount of tea used as well as the time when I try my second cup.
For someone new to Puerhs this is a great introduction, however I’m not sure this one hits the same marks for those with a more expereinced palate.
Once again, going to remove an item from inventory and realizing it was never a part of my inventory. I need to keep that updated. This was a pretty unique pu’erh, especially fruity. Read my full review, here: http://www.createwritedrink.com/2015/08/tea-review-tuesday-review-of-adagio-tea.html
I’m really surprised that this tea is rated as low as it is (currently). It is sweet, smooth, and has a few layers of flavors to chew on. Over steeping can lead to bitterness but it shouldn’t be an issue if you are paying attention. Then again, I may be bias because as a Scorpio, it could just naturally agree with my palate! ;)
Flavors: Chocolate, Fruity
Of the three Adagio samples I received, this one was my favorite. There is still an astringent flavor the loomed over all three samples, but with this one it didn’t feel out of place. There was a smoothness to the astringency that made it pleasant to drink. A balance that didn’t make anything seem out of place.
Mild in flavor, no sign of astringency. Delicious!
Flavors: Astringent, Grass
