Ugh. One day I’ll remember how much I hate caramel/chocolate teas and I’ll stop buying them. I don’t know why I bought this.

It’s not the worst with a little bit of cream and sugar. Kind of like a caramel latte that way. I’m unsure about it. I’ve had way worse “dessert”-flavored teas, though.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate

On it’s own this is pretty gross. I think I’ll have to try it mixed with some vanilla comoro or a tea like that to get past the taste of this one. Which I can’t even figure out what I’m tasting.

Good flavor but very weak. The first steep will make you wish you could better taste the mineral notes. The second steep is not worth drinking.

drank Blood Orange by Adagio Teas
11 tasting notes

I love blood orange and this was not blood orange. The tea looks beautiful right out of the package and brewed up a beautiful color but that’s about the best I can say about this tea. The flavor is quite flat with a general citrus – orangey flavor. The rose hips add a bit and the hibiscus adds more to the visual appeal than the flavor. Would probably make a good iced tea mixed with straight black tea and probably a good tea to sip, with honey, when you have a cold. Doubt I’ll purchase this again.

added 1t of sugar. The lavender blends well with the tea, but I’m not really convinced it adds anything signficant.

Tastes nutty, almost like a muffin. I think it might taste better without the black tea.

drank Spearmint by Adagio Teas
33 tasting notes

I was torn between this and one of my Welcome to Night Vale teas, but as the day went on, my stomach felt sick(er), so mint tea it is!

The leaves smell very strong and cool. Tastes just like Bigelow Mint Medley, though, which is my usual go-to for mint, since we have tons and tons of Bigelow at work. Kind of disappointed, but not really. It’s a good mint tea.

Flavors: Spearmint

drank Mocha Nut Mate by Adagio Teas
33 tasting notes

Oh, this is good. I bought it on a whim while I was on an Adagio tea-buying spree. I usually don’t like chocolate teas, but the notes on here convinced me it might be a good idea. You all were not wrong!

I thought I was accidentally over-steeping because I started talking to someone and not paying attention to my tea, but nope. Right on time. It’s nice and toasty and the chocolate/hazelnut taste is definitely there, but not too fakey-fakey tasting like some chocolate teas I’ve had.

Flavors: Chocolate, Hazelnut

drank Rooibos Caramel by Adagio Teas

Open the bag and the intense caramel aroma hits you. Once steeped, this tea has a nice smooth caramel flavor. This, unlike Adagio’s Caramel black tea, is all caramel. Love it!

drank Calypso Green by Adagio Teas

A bright and refreshing flavored green tea full of tropical fruit flavors. Lots of passion fruit and peach flavor backed up with coconut, mango, and citrus. The green tea gets kind of lost in the mix, but if you like fruity teas this is one to try.

Flavors: Citrus Zest, Coconut, Fruity, Mango, Orange, Passion Fruits, Peach

drank Lapsang Souchong by Adagio Teas
15 tasting notes

This tea literally smells like liquid smoke. It’s almost overpoweringly so. The leaves are really long and curly especially when compared to a loose Earl grey. Just ran up to go pour my tea. I’m using my tasting set from Adagio. Alright, onto the flavor. I only brewed for two minutes so the flavor is very light. The beginning is very mellow but it ends with a smoky tinge. It’s very interesting. I really don’t know whether I like it or not. I’m so used to the mellow sweetness of black teas like English Breakfast, so I don’t know what to make of Lapsang Souchong. Okay, I just added this with a four minute brew and added in some honey. The honey (I’m guessing) took some of the odd bitter weird note. It still smells like I’m drinking a campfire though. I have no idea what to think. I know! It tastes like Mesquite smoke from barbecuing. Where I come from, bbq is big and we use a lot of mesquite and that it what this tea tastes like.

Flavors: Ash, Campfire, Smoke

A lovely tea — very light yellow-green liquor, with a delicate flavor and aroma.
Very, very floral, but not punchy or perfumey; it reminds me of spring in the best way possible. A welcome treat for a cold winter day.

Flavors: Floral, Green, Vegetal

Added 1t of sugar. The pomegranate flavor does not come through at all, leaving an overall pleasant black tea with fruit notes.

drank Fujian Rain by Adagio Teas

This is a tea that I’m learning to love. The leaves have a very earthy scent with hints of smoke and roasting. It smells a little bit like a hojicha
—-edit, not sure where the rest of my review went?

The liquor is a medium amber color with a clean taste. It’s very mineral-y, but ends with a clean oolong finish that leaves you wanting more. It’s a complex cup but very relaxing and enjoyable. Future steeps reveal sweetness after the mineral taste dissipates.

Flavors: Earth, Mineral, Roasted, Smoke

drank Ginger Peach by Adagio Teas
28 tasting notes

More ginger forward than peach. Definitely powdered ginger flavor versus fresh ginger. I am going to try blending with White Peach to boost the peach flavor. As is, I think it’s better for nursing a cold or congestion than a casual sipping tea.

Flavors: Ginger, Peach

This tea is light and floral. The pearls were nicely wound and were generally free of flaws. The aroma of the leaves is strong with the scent of jasmine. The liquor is light and is, again, strongly scented with jasmine. The taste is a light green tea with a strong jasmine taste – actually too strong, which is why it gets lower marks for flavor. Even with minimal steeping, the tea gets overly bitter from the overuse of jasmine; however, the flavor gets better with subsequent steeps

Flavors: Jasmine

drank Citron Green by Adagio Teas
26 tasting notes

Still really enjoy this one as an after breakfast tea. Feels nice and refreshing. It also tends to sit better for my stomach that some other teas early in the day. Overall I’d definitely buy this tea again. Not sure I’d enjoy it as much later in the day. The citrus just begs to be enjoyed in the morning.

Flavors: Citrus, Green, Lemon

drank Cherry Green by Adagio Teas

Macho maraschino! For an instant lift, open the bag and inhale deeply :-) It’s a cherry-lover’s dream with the fresh cherry and maraschino notes. I taste more maraschino than fresh cherry. It’s very tasty.
