drank Black Dragon Pearls by Adagio Teas
64 tasting notes

I’m mixed on this tea. It got slightly oversteeped, so the black became a bit bitter and overpowering. It also reminded me of Yunnan Jig, about which I feel similarly.

Used up the rest of my Earl Grey Supreme and made up the difference with Viennese Earl Grey. Very intense in the first cup this morning, yet surprisingly smooth. Working a resteep now, 8 hours later and its still Earl Grey, still smooth, and still good.

You can also get Adagio Silver Needle from Amazon. However, it looks like they are currently out of it.

One of my faves, but I do prefer Harney’s Jasmine Pearls. This one is good though.

drank Assam Melody by Adagio Teas

I let this one cool before drinking, and the earthyness mellowed out and was replaced by a little bit of bitterness.

One of my absolute favorites. This is the best of the chocolate/strawberry combinations.

I don’t know about this one. Watching the pearls unfold and seperate was pretty cool. I think the hand rolled teas are awesome to look at but they always seem to smell musty and sharp to me. Tastes like regular black tea with a VERY subtle cocoa-musty aftertaste. I used 3 pearls for this cup. Just kind of, “ehh”.

Great 1st and 2nd steep. I just have a sample tin, but I will probably buy a larger one when I run out. I used a little bit of Splenda and it came out wonderful. I thought it tasted better and better as the cup cooled down.

Couldn’t pick out the flavors but they did blend nicely and have a good profile – not flat or bland.

It makes no sense, but it is a bit creamy tasting; perhaps it is the coconut!

drank Mango by Adagio Teas

I got this tea with my shipment of 16 other teas from Adagio. A really nice Mango blend – although personally, I prefer their Green Mango tea.

drank Cinnamon by Adagio Teas

I bought a sample of this to try out as a morning “get psyched!” cup of tea… I very much prefer the red-hot version of cinnamon to the true-to-life type, so this one’s OK in my book.

Great flavor. Tastes sort of like cacao, if the cacao had been next to a low fire.

The strawberry flavor is just bold enough, and actually tastes like strawberry should.
