drank Golden Yunnan by Adagio Teas
19 tasting notes

Black tea from the Yunnan region of China. Yunnan tea is easily identified by its luscious soft leaves, and a unique peppery taste. Our ‘Yunnan Gold’ as the name implies is an exceptional quality tea with beautiful gold-colored leaves and an abundance of rich peppery flavor. Allowed to take only one tea to a desert island, ‘Yunnan Gold’ would be our clear choice.

This is a new tea from Adagio. I really like it. The description above is from their Yunnan Gold and works for now.

drank Jasmine Silver Needle by Adagio Teas

This tea smells genuine. It tastes genuine. Even the aftertaste is pure. Very light in color and ever so delicate. My cubicle smells like I have a little greenhouse of Jasmine growing and blooming. I think I must have accomplished the perfect steep because everything seems just so. I feel all girly drinking this cup…and I’m not a big girly girl. (except that I’m not really into bugs touching me…or being anywhere around me.)

This tea will have to be an “in a certain mood” tea. I couldn’t drink it everday.

Oh yeah, for all you visual folks out there, I added the pic of the tea leaves to the site. Thank you…thank you!

TeaEqualsBliss

I agree! Good review!

(I’m not a girlie girl either LOL) Thanks for adding the pic!

I’m a bit girlie girl (which I’m sure surprises everyone since my avatar is a pink monkey, right?) and especially uncool with the bug thing. But I haven’t been able to fall in love with a jasmine tea. I haven’t tried too many and Adagio’s #12 is the only one I’ve really enjoyed.

Any chance you’ve had that one and can compare the two at all? Because this sounds really good. I’m just a little gun shy. But tempted enough to be curious.

LENA

Hey aug3zimm…I would have never guessed by the pink monkey! :) I haven’t tried #12 but I’ll slip you some of this one in the tea swap.

Auggy

Awesome – thanks! I’ll be getting your goodies together tomorrow. Tea swapping is so fun – like Christmas but no pesky wrapping paper! :)

I’m another non-girlie girl, but I do love jasmine. It was kind of amusing to find myself drinking some jasmine green this morning from a pink hello kitty cup. >__

drank Foxtrot by Adagio Teas
161 tasting notes

Well, the peer pressure worked. I bought a bag.

I’m not a fan of chamomile, but this blend is pretty good. I love me some rooibos and I think this is the 1st “anything” that I like it blended with. I still haven’t found a flavored rooibos that I like. :(

I drank two cups hot and it kind of felt medicinal in a way. This isn’t a bad thing, but I might reserve this tea for sore throat, feeling funky days. I’ll try it iced next, since that seems to be getting rave reviews.

Perk: after drinking, my breath is feeling quite minty clean.

takgoti

Argh, I need to get this. Curious to hear about the iced experiment.

TeaEqualsBliss

Did you oversteep by chance? I did that once and it takes medicine-E too…just curious.

LENA

There is a very good chance that I oversteeped. Between customer’s phone calls, trying to look busy, thinking about what to eat for lunch, etc. I’ll try it again and really watch the clock. Thanks for the advice!

Cofftea

Interesting pairing suggestion…

Holy COW! What a busy day!!!! This tea is helping me thru it tho…thank GOD.

Heyes

There should be a rating for “Buzz” factor as well as smiley face. There are certainly teas that like for the buzz factor, just as much the taste.

It’s a very light mossy smell this time. Infusion 3. 10 mins. The leaves are finally fully expanded. The taste is wonderful. Sweet. Could prob do more infusions but I think I am going to move on after this. YUM.

Cofftea

Gonna move on because you’re tired of the flavor or just getting impatient waiting for it to steep?:)

TeaEqualsBliss

Well…it’s VERY good…just want a different type tea. You know me and variety! LOL

Cofftea

I just ordered this. What do you suggest for the water temp and steeping time of the 1st infusion?

TeaEqualsBliss

Between 180 and 200 for about 4-5 mins

2nd Infusion. 6 mins. Smells of Sweet grass…maybe even a sweet basil-like smell…which is a tad different that the first infusions smell. Interesting. OoooO! Much sweeter taste than the first infusion. Nice!

These leaves are certainly NOT dead so I will be resteeping/multi-infusions. Just LOVE these lil guys…the leaves so fun and vibrant green! The way they dance in the water…brilliant!

These leaves are very different than other Oolongs I have seen. While Steeping the wet leaves are a very vibrant green. I think these leaves are already screaming for a 2nd steep…but time will tell. Not much for aroma, really, it’s close to that of toast. The coloring of the tea-water is more of what I would think of as a green tea type color. As I sip the scent changes to a more masculine and outdoorsy type smell. For the taste it’s a drier taste for starters and gently transforms into something slightly sweeter towards the end of the sip. The more I drink the more I seem to enjoy it.

Auggy

Pouchong/Baozhong is one of my favorite types of oolong. I have much love for those funny little leaves.

Doubled the amount because I was finishing the tin. Not sure if I like the "extra shot’ attempt with this…not that it was bad…it just is good the regular way – I probably won’t mess with this one much if I re-order…for the time being I am plum out.

I like this one more and more each time I steep it…a nice oolong. It’s smooth, too!

Steep #3 – steeped for 10 minutes. Still a nice cup. Smells more like bark than the others and tastes lighter and sweeter than the others. The coloring is about the same as the others but you can tell a slight difference. I think I will stop at 3 steeps…just to leave the fond memories in my mind.

Preparation
8 min or more

2nd steep. It actually seemed stronger in taste probably because I steeped for a minute longer. Regardless it’s still a good cup. It’s a little sweet, a little woodsy, and a little perfumy. I like it!

Cofftea

+1 min is standard for additional infusions. I’ve had this happen before, what probably happened is the amount of leaf you added probably didn’t require the full extra min.

TeaEqualsBliss

It was still good tho…I liked it regardless! :)

I am going to do multiple steeps with this today so check back. For the first attempt it was woodsy to sniff after steeping it was more mellow and a tad sweet scent. The taste was smooth – probably of the smoothest I have tried for oolongs. Great Cup! Steeped 4 minutes.

Preparation
4 min, 0 sec

I agree with the Rebootable’s comments this being earthy and musky right off the bat. This is probably one of the darker colored Oolongs I have ever had. Once you take a sip it’s surprisingly lighter and smoother than I thought it would be. It’s still a bit woodsy but not nearly as much as I thought it would be. I think this is a very good Oolong.

drank Cha Cha by Adagio Teas
6770 tasting notes

First, I must say I usually don’t go for Chamomile. Altho I think it’s BRILLIANT in the Adagio’s Foxtrot Blend. For the heck of it I thought I would add this Cha Cha to my last order…you know…broaden my horizons – or something like that. Anyhow…The dry leaf mixture’s smell doesn’t do anything for me. It smells just like my cat’s Catnip pouches. Ek! But…I will try NOT to prejudge. It’s near the end of the 7 minute steep right now.

It tastes different than I thought it would. Eventho I can taste quite a bit of the Chamomile…I think the Lemongrass and Peppermint blend well with it. Personally, I would try and a little more of each ‘just because’…and I have both in bulk at home from the whole food store so I just might try it next time…

I think the peppermint that is in this blend helps more with the after taste than the actual ‘during the sip’ taste. That’s kind of neat.

After almost the whole cup – I have decided I like this. A Creative Blend. Very Nice.

This sounds very similar to Tavalon’s Serenity, which I enjoyed.
