Still one of my favorite black teas. Had some for lunch cause it was cold outside and I wanted to warm my bones and stomach

I loved this tea. It was a very delicate tea for a black tea and had an almost floral or fruity finish as you drank it. I brewed it like most of my black teas in boiling water 212 ish. Then I let it steep for 4-5 min as 5 seems to make a lot of them go bitter

A very smooth black. Very plain nothing over the top about this tea. Makes a good no nonsense cup.

Loved this! Slightly floral but not overpowering. Second steep was pretty good!

It was good, but I am not a vanilla fan at all. Probably will not purchase again.

I think I’d like to taste more sweetness from the kukicha. But it is a strongly flavored, vegetal green. Not what I was expecting but I think I might quite enjoy it.

Tasted good but hasn’t quite woken me up yet. Need. More. Caffeine.

Ta-da! An empty tin! One down … uh, others to go. This has been an enjoyable tangy, feed-sack grainy, staple tea for cloudy fall days, though I was never brave enough to try it with milk. Just seems like the milk would “clabber up” and sour (as Grandma Jenkins would say).

Brewed a big batch in my Brown Betty teapot this morning; took longer to drink than the tea candle in my warmer stand, but still reheated nicely in the microwave without getting too strong or bitter. Good for a cloudy grungy day.

I associate this tea with autumn and a big heavy earthenware mug. It isn’t delicate or dessert-y.

drank Decaf Apricot by Adagio Teas
1720 tasting notes

Spent the morning and a good chunk of the afternoon writing hard in a room with no windows…emerged hoping for a shot of real light (I am convinced that I run on solar batteries), and discovered….blecccccch. Iron gray skies. So, to soothe my sagging psyche, I made myself a sunny little cuppa, left it all five minutes as prescribed on tin. Nice, except folding laundry and drinking it simultaneously sorta sucked the medicinal value out of it.

This is also a nice summer tea, iced.

Very nice. Decaf process hasn’t stripped out the gentle flavor.

Well this was the last of the sample tin I got with my first Adagio order. It’s a decent flavoured tea but I don’t think I’d buy a whole 4oz canister of it. It’s a shame that custom blends like the Zodiac series don’t come in sample tins. I think I’d be more interested in trying them if I didn’t have to commit to a big thing of tea I might not like.

Cool! I’ve looked around Adagio’s site in the past and I didn’t find this. Maybe a seperate category for sample sets is needed?

inguna

I know it’s hard to find and you can only buy the whole set but perhaps you can split the cost with a friend?

Jillian

Definitely something to consider, thank you. :)

Another tea I’m almost out of – a good thing I suppose, because my tea cupboard is full to overflowing. I’m trying drink up the older stuff first before I start on some of my newer teas like the order I got from SpecialTeas or my Andrew & Durnham Series 1 set.

I just ordered a sample of this and can’t wait to try it. :)

I’ve just realize that I don’t really care for the smell of this tea – it’s almost too sickly sweet. Luckily the tea itself is toned down, otherwise I’d probably be gagging on it!

How much of a deal breaker is the “smell” of your teas? I had a huge issue with the Honeybush Vanilla from Teavana that made me gag, however the tea itself wasn’t to strong.

Jillian

For me it isn’t a huge deal as my nose tends to adapt to scents quickly so I no longer smell them. Still, I suppose it does take away from the whole ‘experience of tea’ if you’re into that.

Cofftea

Eric, you mean like Adagio’s white cucumber? lol;)

Eric Walter

haha I hope I’m not the only one that’s “into that”. Maybe I need to keep trying? Did you get your “Zodiac Series” as a complimentary purchase?

Jillian

Yes, it’s matched with your birthday. Since my birthday is in July and I fall under the Cancer Zodiac sign, that was the tea I got. It’s only a sample-sized container so if it turns out you don’t care for the one you get then it’s really not much waste.

Cofftea

I don’t like that Adagio won’t let you write reviews on the free samples they give you.

LENA

smell is HUGE for me. I go on and try the tea, but I smell everything first.

Was steeping this and another tea for my boyfriend and I accidently added honey to this tea instead of his. I don’t think I added much though since this isn’t tasting much sweeter than usual. The chamomile really is the dominent flavour in this tea with its naturally sweet, semi-creamy apple/pineapple flavour.

Rrr, I need to get a filter with a finer mesh for this tea because I HATE having to pick bits of rooibos and chamomille out of my teeth after I drink it!
