A very smokey flavor that I love, though I wish it had a smokey aroma as well. Nice, dark color when brewed right, making this a great tea to drink by itself.

Backlogging this mornings doings…I went all out with Ceylon Sonata this morning. about a teaspoon in a large mesh ball (plenty of room) and HOT water at a full roiling boil! 4 minutes and I had a perfect cup of tea. As I’ve noted in the past, this is a good tea, not an outstanding tea…I’ve had better “Kenilworth’s”, but all things considered, I’m talking about the difference between really good and really, really good…not between trash and good.

Finally got this one right today and it is particularly good. I like the fact that the tea leaves are in large pieces, leaves no fines the cup.

tried this again in my 2 cup teapot. Don’t know what the issue was a few days ago, but this is fine today. Not as noteable as some other “estate” ceylon’s I’ve had. I wonder if this is a blend….

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.
