I actually gave it the full steeping time; 7 minutes seems like eternity, but I can now concede to the “brothy” descriptions. Not sure about buttery….I think white tea just isn’t my cuppa.

SEVEN minutes? Great Thor!

gmathis

That was the recommendation on the tin…it really takes that long to get any taste to it at all.

drank Masala Chai by Adagio Teas
161 tasting notes

All of my chai samples are gone. It’s a very sad day. This was an above average chai, but I much prefer Adagio’s Thai Chai. The coconut and lemongrass in the Thai Chai really make a difference. I made up enough chai last night for several cups and a travel mug for this morning. I’ve gone 100% traditional when it comes to making chai, so I can only make it at home…not the office. holds arms in the air al a Fiddler on the Roof TRADITION!!!! It was pretty sweet to be able to drink this at work. It’s all special and whatnot.

I’m waiting to see if Adagio does any kind of November special and then I’ll reorder a big bag of Thai Chai for the hizzouse.

I’m amazed at how quickly the level in my canister of Thai Chai is decreasing. I think the boyfriend might be sneaking some when I’m not looking! XD

If I was a rich girl…

Then…I’d buy a lot of tea. Damn it, now you have me thinking in musicals. I’m going to be humming Hey, Big Spender all day, aren’t I?

Auggy

A sad day, indeed.

Perhaps I will have chai tonight. Sort of like mourning your chai-less-ness with a moment of silence. But not.

Cofftea

They ARE doing a special. You get their savory sampler w/ a $19 purchase.

LENA

oh, I’m all over it! My order should be at my door by the time I get home from work!

Cofftea

Let me know what you think of the savory teas:)

Jillian

@ LENA, Damn you for having fast shipping service! ;p

A nice morning tea, but a bit overly fruity for me – I much prefer the apricot black from Adagio. Has a lovely sweet scent, though.

Back logging, btws…
I wasn’t feeling to perky this afternoon, thanks to be a lady, and wanted something I knew would cheer me right back up. So I turned on some old Better off Ted episodes and brewed up a yummy cuppa Thai Chai. This time I happened to have coconut milk in my fridge from making coconut rice (which is delicious), so I added a bit in. Oh, I felt loads better afterward.
This time round, I picked up on way more lemongrass even with the added coconut. Also, the coconut milk messed with the texture a bit, not in a unpleasant way but not pleasing either. However, throughly recommend adding a bit of coconut milk to it and pretty much anything.
Has anyone else tried brewing a chai in coffee? I always order a dirty chai when I’m out, or am I crossing a line?

Cofftea

I ALWAYS order a dirty chai too! 12oz. double shot double pump mocha, double pump caramel, no water. and not the concentrate either, real tea bags! If you don’t want something with a milky texture, just brew coffee with tea instead of plain water (2.25 g for every cup you’re making). It makes a wonderful spiced coffee w/ the health benefits of tea. I was actually going to make myself a dirty chia right now. Adagio’s Chocolate Chia steeped in 3oz 2x strength coffee then adding 3oz milk. I might even add mocha hazelnut sprinkles:)

teafiend

Yum! I’ve never added mocha or caramel but I’m not really a sweets person. Now I really want to try coffee + chocolate chai. I have so much to do today and this will definitely keep me while being awesomely tasty!

Cofftea

If you don’t want it overly sweet, use shaved 100% dark chocolate so the caramel doesn’t make it too sweet.

drank Thai Chai by Adagio Teas
61 tasting notes

This is what I’ve been looking for in a chai for some time! I adore coconut and the hint of lemongrass, blended so well with the spices. The only thing I would change about this tea is to add more actual tea leaves, as I lost a little of the actual tea-ness of it.
I’ve yet to play with ratios of tea to water, or adding milk (coconut or otherwise) and will most certainly spend a lot of time perfecting this already damn near perfect tea (in my most humble opinion).
I will most certainly be drinking this far more often than is probably heathy.

Jillian

This tea is awesome with milk and it really brings out the coconut, so you should really give it a shot some time. :)

Hyrulehippie

Sounds tasty. Is it along the same vein as “thai tea” that’s really strong and brews up rather orange? Whenever I see this on Adagio’s website I can’t tell what “Thai” refers to.

If you want more actual tea flavor you could always just mix in a bit of plain black tea right before you steep it.

I usually mix in a little bit of casablanca twist to add a minty note, but gunpowder by itself is still delicious

drank White Blueberry by Adagio Teas

A little tarter/berrier than the other time I had it. I think because I used more leaf. I was nice and am sharing with DH and he commented on the blueberriness of this.

I’m sleepy so that’s all I’ve got.

drank White Blueberry by Adagio Teas
911 tasting notes

Drinking steeps 3 & 4 from last night iced. When it was hot, I got a sweet taste, then the heavier not-tart taste second. Iced, I seem to get them both together. The sweetness might have even moved a little bit to the end of the tea. As it warms up a bit, the not-tart taste becomes more dominant. Anyway, it’s pretty different from my normal teas but this has a refreshing, summer-in-a-field kind of taste that is nifty.

drank White Blueberry by Adagio Teas

I thought I’d be daring tonight and try another white tea. I did a shorter steep time than suggested because that’s just how I roll. (Yes, I’m a dork)

I don’t know if I would have gone with ‘blueberry’ on this. Maybe I just don’t have blueberries frequently enough – I’m more of a blackberry girl except for the rare muffin. But at the same time, not being beaten over the head with blueberry is a good thing in my world, so that’s a point in this tea’s favor.

It definitely has a sweet fruity flavor, but not too sweet. There’s maybe a little underlying something – not quite tart but just enough to give it a fuller flavor. The more I sip on this, the more I like that and this tea.

Yay! White teas aren’t anywhere near as horrid as I thought!

One of my favorite teas from Adagio. Great by itself or with a little sugar and milk. The cinnamon, cardamon, and ginger flavors make this tea really stand out. One tablespoon can give you 4 very good cups of tea. Recommended for anyone who likes flavorful black tea. :)

drank Red Light by Adagio Teas
911 tasting notes

The strawberry is the strongest flavor and overwhelms the other flavors with tartness. Adding a bit of sugar tamed the tart but I still don’t really taste any of the other flavors. It just seems like a weak brew of strawberry. (I brewed for just under 3mins as the description stated). That being said, for anyone that actually enjoys herbals, this might not be too bad.

ETA: As it cools, I’m getting more of what might be the raspberry green after the initial strawberry taste.

drank Tropical Monkey by Adagio Teas

When it is hot, there is too much tropical, not enough monkey. But as it cools, the balance is shifting and that is a good thing.

The strawberry is a bit overpowering. I can taste a little of the green tea in it but barely a hint. I want to taste more of the green and have it be less of a strawberry tea that it is. I want the whole tea to taste like the aftertaste does, which is a nice light strawberry-flavored, instead of the tart taste of just strawberries, which is how everything but the aftertaste tastes.

(6g/12oz/3min/175) The ginger isn’t too strong at all – it just adds a hint of flavor that almost covers up the soybean/cooked veggie-like flavor I tend to associate with white teas. Overall a nice mild tea that is enjoyable but I don’t think likable enough that I’ll get more. But if I liked white tea more, I can see how I would like this one more.

drank Honeybush Hazelnut by Adagio Teas
911 tasting notes

I’m generally not a fan of honeybush or roobois (tastes like cardboard), but this one is pretty okay. Can’t say it’ll ever be a favorite but of the honeybush I’ve tried, this is the best. It makes me think of a heavily doctored cup of coffee – in a good way.

drank Valentines by Adagio Teas

This morning’s tea – I didn’t make it and the leaves sat in the pot for too long so it was a little bitter, but it was mixed with cream tea to make it smoother and I put some sugar and milk in to take away the bitter so it ended up pretty okay.
