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
Picked up a sample of this at Adagio the other week. I brewed it hot even though the instructions said to cold steep it. I’m wondering if I should have just followed the instructions on the bag instead. The dry leaf smelled promising in the bag – very blood orange and citrusy – but once steeped it developed a sour, potpourri-ish flavor that tasted like orange Kool Aid. Adding a little sugar helped but still couldn’t rescue it.
It’s not as revolting as some other Adagio herbal teas I’ve had, but pretty lousy nonetheless.
Flavors: Artificial, Blood orange, Medicinal, Sour
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.
