Love this tea. Nice mild honeybush with a vibrant apricot taste. Perfectly balanced, and you can’t oversteep it.

drank White Darjeeling by Adagio Teas

Today I got the opportunity to discover that this eases a certain degree of migraine pain nearly as well as pai mu tan. whimper

Auggy

So sorry about the migraine. I hope it goes away soon and with no migraine hangover!

Luthien

Thanks. It’s still hanging around at the edges, but at least I have tea!

takgoti

Eep. Migraines may just be the bane of my existence. Usually turn off all the lights and I hide under blankets in the fetal position when they decide to plague me [I wish I were kidding], but IF there’s a next time I’ll have to try tea.

I hope you’re feeling better Luthien. I had a rather bad headache myself this afternoon. It went from annoying headache to too-hot-nauseous-must-lie-curled-up-in-cool-room-with-no-lights while I was driving home. Thankfully, I wasn’t far but I was sitting in traffic. I’m currently in the period of thank-god-this-headache-is-gone happiness. Two ibuprofens and an hours nap on the couch then chicken soup worked today.

Luthien

Takgoti, you should totally try a double strength brew of one of the stronger white teas like pai mu tan if you get another migraine. It won’t cure it, but it should ease the pain. I was amazed the first time it had that effect on me because I’m so used to nothing really helping, but it happens every time so it’s not a fluke. Several friends of mine have had the same reaction and apparently there are also some medical studies that support this – it’s not just wishful thinking.

Luthien

Glad you’re feeling better, chrine. There’s nothing quite like the relief when you come out the other side of a headache like that!

drank White Darjeeling by Adagio Teas

This is a really good white tea. I wondered if it would be similar to the Green Darjeeling I have at home, but it’s turned out to be very much a white tea in taste without any of the malty edge of the Green Darjeeling. It has good flavour and is significantly less delicate than Silver Needle, but not quite as robust as Pai Mu Tan. This is a sweet, smooth and lovely white tea, definitely one that I’d buy more of.

Jillian

Interesting, I’ve often wondered how these relatively new Indian versions of traditional Chinese teas compare.

This is a lovely tea – delicate flavor, slightly sweet and less grassy than Silver Needle (my all-time favorite). Perfect for a morning that I’m feeling out of sorts…

Really lovely, with a slight (very) sweetness and great flavor – not heavy at all. Perfect.

I’m not feeling this one and it’s my second time trying it. Any tea that has a description of “smelling of crab” should have thrown up the good ole warning flag. And I get it…there is a faint crab…err, krab smell.

There is a natural sweetness to this tea, but the sharp veggie dryness kills it. I’m glad this tea was part of a free sample pack…I would never re-order it. As a matter of fact, this tin will probably go into the drawer of misfit teas and wait until it can be swapped.

Any takers for the krab tea?

takgoti

Not to deter people from taking the sample off your hands, but that sounds disgusting.

TeaEqualsBliss

Oh No!!!! I just order this! I’m nervous now…

Auggy

Seriously, this sounds so odd. If you are really looking for someone to relieve you of it, I’d love to try it. Seafood and tea, all rolled into one. Hehe.

LENA

it just wan’t my cup of tea…you guys might love it.

aug3zimm, I think I can send a sample to TX. :) Just email me your home address and I’ll send it out. No stalking I promise. Although I did look at your kitty pics. My 2 cats love a good box to play in too! Do you have any teas that you might swap with me?

TeaEqualsBliss

maybe it was a bad batch!? Mine wasn’t too bad

LENA

and….SOLD…to aug3zimm!

Auggy

Yay!!! It’s so interesting to read the different reviews about it on here. I can’t wait! I’m such a nerd!

Officially the best peppermint tea. I’ve had it in a semi-air tight case and it still tastes very fresh

drank Rooibos by Adagio Teas
4 tasting notes

Mild taste. Never had it so I don’t know if I didn’t use enough of the rooibos in the steep.

Jillian

I’m pretty sure the usual amount is 1 tsp. per cup, the same as with regular tea.

I love this tea. Just the right balance between wonderful tea taste with a hint of blueberry aroma.

Great afternoon tea. Very vanilla!

Not bad. The peach taste is pretty subtle, and it mostly comes through at the end. I prefer Lupicia’s Momo (Peach) Oolong, which has a stronger peach flavour and I think balances the tea and fruit flavour a bit better, but this one is quite drinkable. Pretty tin!

Auggy

I really enjoy how Lupicia flavors their tea. Seems to me to be more natural of a taste compared to others. I almost grabbed some of their Momo black this morning!

takgoti

Yet another reminder that I need to check out Lupicia. And win the lottery.

I prepared this with frothed milk and sweetener. The cocoa flavor is very mild, but definitely present. Drinking a second cup without milk made the flavor less noticeable. It reminds me a bit of Mexican chocolate, except, of course, for the calories.

Jillian

One of the many benefits of drinking chocolate tea. ;) I love their Chocolate Chip tea.

Very fruity. And that’s pretty much all I can say about it. Very fruity. Maybe a little too fruity to be something I truly love, but still good. Oddly though, I taste blueberries, but there are no blueberries. So either blackberry + mango + peach = blueberries or I’m nuts. Either is possible.

My friend’s favourite tea, so this was another one on the list to try. The chocolate taste works a lot better in this than in other so-called chocolate teas I’ve tried and I love the strawberry aspect! Definitely a winner.

drank Foxtrot by Adagio Teas
265 tasting notes

I’m leaving the rest of this with my friend when I move on to the next part of my holiday tomorrow, so I thought I’d better have some more while I could. I’ve belatedly remembered that I used to really like Twinings’ chamomile and spearmint, and Foxtrot is very reminiscent of that. Just, you know, better. I hate to say it, but I think that’s because of the rooibos.

Jillian

Something to remember for the next order from Adagio? ;)

Luthien

Alas, I can’t usually order from Adagio because I live in Australia and they won’t ship there because of customs issues with importing tea. My current trip to the States is a tea tour on top of everything else. g

Jillian

I’ve found that a lot of otherwise good tea places (thankfully not Adagio) charge an insane amout of money to ship to Canada. If I ever go south of the border the first thing I’ll do is go nuts buying all the tea I couldn’t get at home. ;D

I’ve been seeing TeaEqualsBliss rave about this tea for a while now, so I added it to my list of teas to try while I’m over here. Just coming to the end of the first cup now, and I can see what all the fuss is about. I generally don’t go for rooibos or even rooibos blends very much, but this is a great mix. The fresh taste of the mint is present from the first sip right through to the aftertaste, but I can really feel the hit of chamomile as well. And yeah, the rooibos needs to be there, too, because it sort of brings everything together. So sad that I can’t get this at home, because I’d really like to give it a permanent place in my tea cupboard.

drank Jasmine #12 by Adagio Teas
19 tasting notes

Love the little “balls” of tea, especially when they unfold. Something about that just makes it taste better… ESPECIALLY when steeped in a traditional teapot (something I definitely don’t do enough of). There’s a few different types of Oolong Jasmine, they all taste almost the same, with some subtle differences. This is a lighter Jasmine, not as much flavor of the flower, but more of a mix between Jasmine and Oolong. Still very good though.

… drinking a mix of Adagio’s pumpkin spice, gingerbread, and caramel teas. This one is very sweet!
