Didn’t care for this too much…not enough to thumbs-down, but its not a thumb’s up either. I like my tea very plain…nothing added…and this tea has a very “flowery” taste. Sort of like the sweet you get smelling a fresh bloom of honeysuckle. Not unpleasant..but distracting from the flavor of the tea.

Intense and flavorful. I’m not a morning person and this really helps.

Very interesting tea. It is very dark in color and almost reminds me of coffee. It definitely has a cocoa smell and flavor to it. What sticks out to me is the smoky flavor.

It’s hard to over steep this tea, as I let it steep for about 10 minutes and it didn’t get bitter. In fact, I liked the longer steep a little more as the flavors come through a bit better.

“Delicate flavor” is right! This tea is smooth and subtle for a black tea, making it a good way to start the morning.

Mmm, peachy. A hint of peach flavor along with a dash of honey complement the pleasant oolong nicely.

Rich, toasty coconut flavor. A sweet treat with a little sugar.

Welcome back, Golden Monkey! You’re still a little more bitter than I’d prefer, but that’s probably due to your high caffeine content, so I’ll let it go. This time.

You’re also a little more flavorful than I remember, which is a good thing. You’ve got a well rounded flavor that’s enhanced by a pleasant aroma, which makes me wonder if I didn’t steep you properly the last time we met?

Either way, I’m happy to get to know you again, and look forward to our next encounter.

Flavorful without being overpowering. Not a lot of aroma, but a great color and a smooth taste.

drank Ginger Peach by Adagio Teas

A very spicy, peppery ginger, slighly mellowed by its fruity notes. I added one cube of sugar, hoping to bring out the sweetness of the peach and apricot a bit more.

For a black tea, this has a very smooth taste and a good flavor. Not overpowering, but still a nice, strong tea.

If I didn’t know better I’d swear there was chocolate in this tea. Rich and delicious and not the least bit bitter. Definitely a new favorite.

This was different. The taste was somewhat surprising. I didn’t know the blended flavors and so I tried to guess and ended up with caramel oranges. Which I’ve never had before. And don’t think I ever want to have. (On the plus side, hubby really enjoyed this a lot – so I suppose it is a personal taste thing).

I cannot recommend this tea highly enough! With just a taste of soy milk, it is a delicious and delightful start to my morning. Irish Breakfast was what initially hooked me on tea, so it is perfect in so many ways.

drank Pu Erh Dante by Adagio Teas
11 tasting notes

This was my first experience with a pu-erh tea. I steeped it for about 4.5 mins at about 200. It has a pretty interesting flavor to it. You can taste the earthy flavor it has to it. The smell (while not bad at all) has a small seafood smell to it. This smell does not transfer (completely) over to the taste. Do not get me wrong this is a pretty good tea, but if you do not like earthy teas this one is definitely not for you.

This is an excellent full-bodied tea. It has a nice hearty taste to it with a very friendly roasted malt flavor. This tea is one of my favorites!

Not as strongly fruity as I was expecting based on smell (thank goodnes) – the fruit actually makes it pleasantly sweet, but it does overpower the other, lighter teas. Not as much as I expected, but more than I’d like.

I was hesitant to try this free sample because it smelled extremely sweet and fruity. Today I tried it and did not enjoy it at all. I drank a cup because I did not want it to go to waste. I’m not sure if I had steeped this wrong, so I am willing to try again since I have a sample of this.

Cofftea

try 2.25g of tea leaf per 6oz of purified water steeped in boiling water for 5 min.
