Nice, smooth tea to wake up with. Also makes a tasty iced tea.

East Side Rob

Assams do make kick-ass iced teas.

drank Gunpowder by Adagio Teas

Delicious when cold-brewed, which is how I usually take it. Often with a little mint.

Jillian

Funny you should say that because that’s basically what Morrocan Mint tea is. :D

This was my first rooibos, and it sold me on the whole plant. Wonderful on its own, or blended with another tea.

I can get 4-5 good steeps out of this before it starts getting noticeably weak, and the flavor is great. I actually like this a little bit more than the Iron Goddess. Wonderful blend at a wonderful price.

There’s just something weird going on with this. I tried to like it, but it just wasn’t happening. I can’t even articulate why I dislike it.

Light tea that I drink at night to relax me before bed. It doesn’t have a strong tangerine taste, but the hint of flavor is the best!

Got this as a gift for my birthday. Hadn’t ever tried it before, and was very pleasantly surprised at the experience. I am having a hard time thinking about going back to mundane teas that I have had in the past. Great cup of tea.

Enjoyed with my sister at the Radiance tea house in New Tork

Jason

Do they serve Adagio teas at Radiance? I love that tea house, so classy.

TeaEqualsBliss

Congrats on winning! That’s awesome and I am soooooo jealous! LOL

slygirl

I love Radiance too. Wished I lived in NY so I can go all the time :)

cultureflip

Never been to New Tork. Is it nice?

drank Decaf Raspberry by Adagio Teas
162 tasting notes

Did a 3 minute steep time and added just a little agave. Got a very nice cup. Agave helped to bring out the sweetness of the raspberry and cut down on the cardboard decaf taste that can sometimes come through. Very nice nighttime treat.

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.

BillNV

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
161 tasting notes

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!
Auggy

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! :)

Hyrulehippie

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!
