One word: rich. Rich rooibos and rich vanilla make me feel the same. Easy, too: the only way to mess up this cup is to understeep, which (for people like me who forget that their tea is steeping) is a definite plus.

The thing I love most about this tea is the vanilla flavor—it tastes so fresh and natural. A good “cold day” tea.

I’ve found, recently, that I like the tea steeped just shy of five minutes. Previously, it’s astringency was too overpowering. The smokey notes in this Keemun have a very classic feel. As it cools I taste roasted chestnuts and pecans. Perfect for a walk in the snow.

Tasty, smokey, and rich. This tea has a body that certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Lovely. Rich and aromatic. It’s raining in Seattle today and nothing could suit me better than a huge cup of tea before today’s adventures.

Encore is an absolute gem on a rainy day, no question about it.

I ordered a 8 oz for my sister who is an avid fan of Orange flavors. The tea is a dark pink with a strong perfume of deep Orange. I admit that I liked the aroma of the tea better than the taste. If I could devise a way to turn the tea into a potpourri, I could make a fortune.

The tea itself is sour and lacking in what I would call complete character. Spiced with sugar, it’s perfect for kids. I liked it too, but it needed something to carry it to the finish line… A dark spice like Cinnamon would work, I think… Bottom line is, if you’re crazy about sugaring up your tea and love Orange, the tea is ideal.

Completely agree. I like how natural the sweetness of this tastes. Great for when you’re looking for something sweet but not overpoweringly so.

Profumatissimo e dal gusto che ricorda la liquirizia. Si beve tranquillamente senza zucchero, ma con l’aggiunta di quello di canna diventa ancora più speziato.

I really enjoyed this. Reminds me of a smooth, clean, earl grey, without any substantial after taste or scent. I used two pearls, but I think one would be plenty for my taste in weak tea. I also assumed I could steep this without a filter, but the pearls unfurled completely and I got a mouth full of leaves.

Enjoyed a cup with my wife this evening…. It’s now her “ask for” cup of tea.

Backlogging last night.
I love this tea. Not because I like the taste, I do, but because my wife likes the tea. This is the tea that cemented my wife as a loose tea drinker. Its the one that she will go to the trouble of brewing, as opposed to dropping a teabag into a cup of water and putting it in the microwave.
Did I mention its a damn fine tea?

Heyes

Always a good idea to bring the wife over to the loose side – makes the discussion “expense” of loose leaf tea less of a bear.

Made this last night in my 4 cup pot (after the decaf ceylon disaster). Two heaping teaspoons with boiling water, steeped 3 minutes. Yummy! This came out perfect. I really like the bergamot peel that Adagio uses in their Earl Grey, and like the “normal” version, this EG comes out with a big bergamot burst that some might find overwhelming. But for the real Earl Grey experience, I think Adagio has the finest…and their decaf keeps up the standard.

drank Decaf Ceylon by Adagio Teas
240 tasting notes

I fixed a 4 cup pot of this for my wife and I last night. First time I’ve tried Adagio’s Decaf Ceylon. In short, it was a disaster! The tea had an off taste that I can only describe as “fish stock” and I poured the whole pot down the drain (I abhor fish stock and anything made with it).
For the record: 2 heaping teaspoons steeped with boiling water 4 minutes. The off taste was present at 90 seconds when I checked for color and just got worse with time.

E’ sicuramente il tè più delicato che ho bevuto. Ha una nota piacevolmente acida e un gusto fresco erbaceo.

Never been a fan of unflavored black teas in general, but this one is not as sharp or “edgy” as most blacks that I’ve had. It’s a solid tea… malty, a little bit of smoke (not too much—I don’t really like smoke) with a malty, almost floral finish.

I drink it plain right when I get in to work or in the afternoons when I need a little somethin’ somethin’ to help me finish the day.

A fab herbal blend. I generally drink this in the afternoon but this morning it called to me. The roobios really brings everything together.

I keep seeing this tea pop up with consistently good feedback. I love rooibos, so I’d probably like it. Must remember to try it.

I am absolutely stunned by the amount of this tea used that other have logged. It seems to be a pretty forgiving brew. I used 6 balls to brew a one pint pot this morning. I decided to try a longer steep, to see if I could get a stronger brew that way. Sorry, just my cheapskate nature showing. Anyway, the tea tolerates a long brew well, and did not develop any bitter or acid flavors. I drank my first cup with milk and sugar, which is not the usual way I take my tea but I was in the mood for it, and it was absolutely delicious. The second cup I took black, and it, too was delicious. Then I prepared a second steep, again brewed for six minutes. It was a touch weaker, but still good.

It makes sense to me that a longer steep would work well with this tea, as it takes some time to unfold, and thus for all of the leaves to come into contact with the water. A shorter steep might very well require more tea to make a tasty cup.

I’ve prepared this the last two mornings – short on sleep and not ready to face the day. This tea has a strong dark color, and a smooth, malty, smoky taste that makes it easier to face the day. I usually want my morning cup to be brighter and more cheery, but this is a good tea to relax with.

And I still think watching the tea balls unfold is great entertainment. Or, at least, as much entertainment as I am up for this morning.
