drank Green Chai by Adagio Teas
12 tasting notes

Sweet cinnamon aroma during first steep. So this is a green chai. Definitely distinct from those with the typical black base. The taste is so-so, but I will say that these green leaves are super mild and allow the spices to do all the heavy lifting and hence the foreground is composed of the spices, a tingle left on the tongue.

Despite the spicy presence, nailing down exactly which ones the blend is composed of is a more difficult task. The taste that pulls through is less so the usual thoughtful layering of nutmeg, coriander, etc. but rather a few striking chords, notably those of ginger and cinnamon.

drank White Pear by Adagio Teas
56 tasting notes

So i had purchase this tea and came here first to see the reviews. Ive never seen so many negatives review on a tea, so i mentally prepared myself and decided it to drink it cold. i just meh! i have to agree with a lot of the reviews out there saying its bitter even steeped cold. But i think it would be worst hot.

Not much about this was notable. I think I could detect a light lemongrass flavour. I added honey and almond milk and it was good enough. Nothing amazing. Just okay. I wouldn’t seek it out, but if offered I wouldn’t turn it away either.

Flavors: Lemongrass, Spices

[First 100 tasting notes! I have other notes in standby, but i needed a worthy one to celebrate this milestone]

How i got it: A birthday gift from my parents and sister

Experience: Going from soft to mild, its aroma is delicate but very well defined, following a classic Assam style with slight hints of honey. Its flavor has a medium intensity, doesn’t have the usual Assam strength (at least the ones I’ve tried have been quite strong), but in exchange it gives a well defined, lasting and quite complex taste, that’s not so easy to define (I would call it “fruity”). The honey notes in the aroma have a match in the flavor, and the cup ends with a wooden, nice aftertaste, plus some astringency. I could never sense a hint of bitterness in this tea. I can easily count Adagio Melody among the best teas i’ve tried.

Would i buy it?: Surely

drank Cream by Adagio Teas
56 tasting notes

Got this one on my first adagios order ever. Its good to mix with others makes then creamier i usually end up mixing it with earl gray tea’s. On its own its a little astringent, so i dint think i liked this one so much, but now that i’m on my last cup I’m going to miss it. when i finish some of my older teas in my cabinet ill consider getting a bit more of this one.

drank Valentines by Adagio Teas

I got this for my hubby as a gift he dint liked it. I have learned he doesn’t like strawberry and chocolate flavors together. Oh well. As for my opinion its and just OKEY tea. I brewd it with a dash of almond milk, i got a strong flavor of chocolate but not enough strawberry in my opinion.

drank Irish Breakfast by Adagio Teas
55 tasting notes

I received this as a sample from Adagio last weekend, and figured it’d be the perfect tea to kickstart my St. Patty’s Day celebrations. This morning, I went to Mariano’s (one of the grocery stores in Chicago) and bought some of their delicious soda bread, along with some Kerry Gold butter (I rarely keep butter in my apartment, so this was a treat) and decided to enjoy them with some Irish Breakfast tea as soon as I got home.

This tea is pleasantly malty, and stands up well to cream and sugar. Nothing about it sets it apart from other Irish breakfast blends, but I wasn’t expecting it to.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Lemon Grass by Adagio Teas

I think I enjoyed this even more because it soothed a sore throat. I love lemongrass. The aroma is pleasant and the taste is refreshing. I took a few sips and then added some honey for sweetness. It was a good combination!

drank Rwanda Rukeri by Adagio Teas
25 tasting notes

I got this as a free sample with my last order from Adagio. I’ve been quite impressed so far. For an inexpensive tea, it has a great complexity of flavor. Overall it has a slight astringency, but not too much. There is even a touch of sweetness in the cup. Very typical assam flavor profile with perhaps a bit more of a bite. Not strong astringency, but just a more defined profile. It’s hard to explain.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

A nice warming mix of spices. The ginger leaves behind a faint burning heat on the tongue. I usually find chai too strong with clove, but here it didn’t overwhelm the other spices. I added just a little sweetener and a splash of almond milk and curled up on the couch with my cup.

I enjoy this – it is malty and bready and I felt like it had a sweetness, possibly even chocolatey lean. Too bad my cats chose to knock my mug over and I will now be wearing it to work as well.

I’m not sure how I feel about this tea. I love hazelnut, but am still not sure if I enjoy it in a tea. If you like hazelnut I would definitely give it a try!

drank Thai Chai by Adagio Teas
5 tasting notes

I made an account just to complain about how bad this tea is (and remind myself to never buy it, ever again). This tea tastes like soup to me. Maybe some people are into that, IDK. I’m really not. It’s not appetizing at all. I’ll just pop over to the closest Thai restaurant and order some Tom Kha rather than drink a “tea” that tastes just like it.
Oh, and it has no chai taste whatsoever. None!!
