A good, if not distinguished, sencha. Definitely worth a try. Go easy on the temp and time, and it will turn out right.

Great! This has been my go-to tea for a few years, although I’ve since moved on to sencha.

Gross, gross, gross. I was stoked that Adagio gave me a free sample of this stuff in my 1st order. I would have been super pissy if I paid for this drink. Overly flowerly, horrible aftertaste…just yuck.

I’m running low on everything!!! Luckily, I’ll have a brand new box of goodness from Adagio as soon as I get home. Yea! New teas and new posts to follow.

Does anyone know of an ANTI-rain dance? I’m about tired of driving to and from work in the rain. And my dog can’t go out and play. Wanna see a 150 pound Great Dane that is scared of the rain?…come to my crib. At least this cuppa kept me nice and warm and snuggly as I pretend to work. I’m on my second cup. Bravo Sagittarius tea!

I can’t be certain, but I think it may involve any or all of the following: a wooden spoon, wearing your pajamas inside-out, and Bohemian Rhapsody.

Well, and drinking tea. But that’s my remedy to just about everything.

I’m running low on everything too!!! STILL looking for my package…ek!

If you find that anti-rain dance, let me know. It’s rained so much here this summer, even my cactus plants have mushrooms growing in them. And don’t even ask about being trapped in the house with two stir-crazy beagles.

I like the Cancer tea from the Zodiac series – it sounds like this one is worth trying, too.

The cream flavor is really coming through in this cup…pretty neat considering all I used was a little splenda.

As a Roobios junkie, I just knew I would LOVE this tea. Wrong. This blend tastes nothing of Roobios and is super overpowering with the cinnamon. Maybe it would be better iced or mixed into a cider of sorts…I don’t know. Not a fan.

Another Rooibos morning. This tea is great in any ratio…I used a heaping spoonful today it is just great. This Rooibos has never tasted too strong…only richer. Off to get another cup.

Still in love with this tea. I used half a package of Splenda. Nothing beats the plain ole Roobios…all of the flavors I’ve tried are pretty gross.

The first sip I did not love but after a full cup, I quickly made another. Now, I’m totally hooked and drink it all the time. Roobios has a rich, earthy and woody flavor. Drink a cup while reading The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series and you’ll enjoy it all the more.

Quite lovely. Mint does not take over which is nice …

Steeped this one for a minute or two less than yesterday, and the smokey flavor didn’t come through as strongly. Gave it a much smoother taste, though I think I liked the smokey flavor a little more.

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.

drank Ceylon Sonata by Adagio Teas
239 tasting notes

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.

drank Yunnan Noir by Adagio Teas

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.
