i will be editing this post with my re-steep i plan on doing so stay tuned :) (i know i said i wouldn’t but check my gingerbread review and you will see why)
everything about this tea is amazing! b4 i head over to my parents tomarrow for our family christmas party i may try this shaken with ice! the smell of this tea alone is enough to get my mouth watering like crazy, only to realize it tastes almost the same as it smells!!
so im sitting here nursing some stitches and a bruised knuckle (darn snow shovel) and thought that strawberry would be perfect right now for the situation. i was right :) this tea never fails me if steeped right.
the color is a medium amber.

EDIT
re-steeped this and surprisingly enough it isnt bad, i re-steeped for 10 mins and theres no bitterness but i can tell its not the same, it lost some of its strawberry flavor and gained an extra sweetness. i enjoy this. :) maybe ill get brave enough to do a 3rd sometime soon.

i love this tea! its just so relaxing and makes me feel like im drinking candy :) almost like a guilty pleasure. i tried it re-steeped…well it isnt bad, just not strong enough for me, it reminds me of watered down strawberry bath water, i drank it…i just dont plan on doing it again.
i over steeped this about 2 days ago and wow did i regret that! this is a very touchy tea 5 min steeping not a second longer or it will taste like your drinking bitter apple spray (its a training aid for pets you spray things you dont want them chewing on…unfortunately ive sprayed it in my face and know what it tastes like) but if you get it right WOW. this is a tea i keep coming back to over and over again!
time to get the travel mug set up and get ready for work!

Love betta fish!! I relaly want another one. We haven’t had one around the house for about a year.

Jillian

A male betta (or Siamese Fighting Fish as the species was oh so dramatically called) was my first pet when I was small. Are you getting a male aswell or just females?

Kitch3ntools

i already have 2 males (in separate tanks) and now 4 females :) there was 1 other male that i liked alot at petco but we were on a mission for ladys :p ive already introduced them to the tank and 2 are trying to assert dominance but the larger one backs off last minute. they are very fun fish! my 2 males have completely different personalities and already 1 female when i look in to check on them will swim over to my face and get in my line of sight :)

Jillian

So are you trying to breed them?

Kitch3ntools

no, ive tried b4 years ago. i had a successful spawn but went to school 1 day came home and all the fry had gotten a fungus because the father was not taking care of them. i tried to salvage them but sadly they all ended up dieing. i think breeding will be eventually in the future, far in the future (my fiance is interested in doing it, we start school this week and cannot afford to be away for too long in case spawning happen) i wanted a comunity tank and i wanted more bettas lol. i didnt know how many i needed to keep the peace which was y i did so much reading.

:D another cup today! it is very late but luckly for me i have a very high tolerance for caffeine and will more than likely doze off to sleep without a problem. oddly enough my consumption of tea has increased and i seem to be sleeping more soundly at night (im weird lol) i really like how much the blueberry flavor comes through with this tea and the fact that i LOVE blueberries helps too :D

drank Caramel by Adagio Teas

This is a very smooth tea- a good black base, with just the right amount of caramel flavor, and not artificially sweet. This is an excellent afternoon/evening tea.

This is the tea that sucked me into Adagio with full force- it’s a true delight. The strawberry and chocolate flavors mix beautifully. Before this tea, I would never have seen myself drinking a tea flavored like dessert, but this made me a believer.

Backlogging from the day before yesterday. (I’ve been a busy cat.) Made a pot of this to sip on all day, ended up sharing a lot of it with my brother. Just as good as usual. Not amazing, but good.

Blended with Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger (2 bags) again. This time I extended the brewing time by just a little, and used 11 teaspoons instead of 9. I had hoped to give the tea a stronger flavor, and it worked. I added sugar and cold water, eyeballing the amounts, and now it’s cooling in my fridge. My ingenuiTea is half-full of leaves when I’m done.

Blended 9 teaspoons of this plus two bags of Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger. Made 2 quarts of delicious chilled raspberry tea. I will definitely do this again. I bet this kind of English Breakfast blends well with lots of different flavors.

Very standard, but good. I find that brewing it with a little more than a teaspoon makes it more flavorful, but not bitter. Right now I’ve got a hot cup of it, sweetened with three packs of Sugar In The Raw because that’s how we do it in the deep south, dammit! Actually, I think it’s probably just a bad habit of mine. Anyway, I like this tea a lot. It would be good to keep around for everyday pots.

I tried this again, steeping it longer and at a lower temperature. This time, the spice is mellower, and the tea flavor shines through a bit better. It definitely upped the yummy factor a lot.

Dang. This is not making my next tea order any smaller.

One thing Adagio does well is their chai blends – the spice is always rich and well balanced. This green tea is not my favorite of their chai tea blends, because they are all awfully good, but it is well worth drinking.

I do love their chai blends but I’ve never had a green chai before. How do you prepare it? I would think doing it the same way as their black chai blends the green would get bitter?

Cynthia Carter

I actually prepared this with boiling water, figuring that a lower temperature would not extract the spices as well. I may try it again at a lower temperature and for a longer steep, to see how that affects the flavor.

takgoti

I’d never even heard of a green chai before. I’m very curious to see what your results are from shifting the parameters around.

Unless you already have and I just haven’t seen it because I have a lot of catching up to do. [If that’s the case, ignore me.]
