I plowed right through my 3 oz. tin of this. It’s consistently been my morning tea maybe 85% of the days in the past couple months. It has all the characteristics of a solid morning black tea for me: not too light, not too strong either (though there are days when I can’t handle caffeine in the mornings), with just the right amount of natural sweetness. In fact, I think Adagio should change the name of this to ‘Goldilocks’, because it’s juuuust right. It’s definitely something I could see myself drinking every morning for quite some time (though in the interest of coming up with new things to write, I’m going to find another morning black and go with that for a while). In the end, I’m bumping my rating up a few points from when I first logged it, mainly because of its eminent dependability and drinkability.

On a side note, the Adagio 3oz. tins themselves are great! The stickers peel off easily and you rinse them out and reuse them without much hassle.

I LOVE this tea too! My morning staple every day. Can’t beat it.

The stickers peel off? Really? How come I didn’t think of that too?.. lol

Btw, are you steeping yours twice? I was taught to only do blacks one time cuz there’s not enough uumph to do double steeps. But I’ve been plowing through mine every day and know that some do double steep their blacks…if you dont mind, what times are you steeping? I’ve been going 4min, then now 5min 2nd steep- still a bit weak for me but I so LOVE this tea that I’ll drink it anyway.

Unmistakably blueberries. The leaves look very delicately rolled, and this goes great with my morning cereal of Kashi Autumn Wheat with dried blueberries. I can usually get two steepings, but any more is stretching it.

Light amber, sweet smelling with all of the delicate flavor I expect from a good Darjeeling.

Just purchased this one! Waiting for it to get here! :)

Worth the wait!?

smooth, floral taste and fragrance. If it weren’t almost perfect already it would be wonderful blended with jasmine.

added some sugar and made it bearable, still has a nasty aftertaste though.

drank Almond by Adagio Teas

Brewed this up this morning and added a drop of bitter almond oil to bring out the almond flavor (I’d found it to be weak previously). It helped and next time I might add some almond slivers as well. Still not a favorite though.

The almond certainly didn’t overpower the tea flavor. I did detect a hint of astringency when I followed the steeping instructions on the package. I generally like my blacks more to the three minute mark than the five. Still nice though.

I switched back to tea this morning in the hopes that it will help me tackle the enormous sewing pile in my room. I picked the Fujian Baroque because it has long been a favorite of mine. Today I noted a smokiness accompanying the cocoa flavor I’m used to. Maybe I’ve set it too close to my Lapsang?

I was just thinking the same thing!

I’ve been drinking so much coffee lately I figured it was time to switch back to tea for a bit. This one is an old favorite and has the body (and chocolatey goodness!) to stand up to all the coffee. Drank it along side home made banana oatmeal brulee. Yum!

This is really becoming a comfort tea of mine.

Me too! It’s my tea equivalent of a soft, fuzzy sweater.

I love this tea. The more I drink it the more I pick out delightful milk chocolate notes. Maybe hints of cardamon.

Nicely full bodied. I got lots of cocoa notes but didn’t detect any spice or fruit. I really loved this tea.

Tastes like a standard black tea. Good, but nothing spectacular.

Pretty good. Used the last of what I had though.

This is one of my “must have” teas – absolutely luxurious spicy flavor, wonderful with milk and honey. A bit overwhelming on its own.

Intensely fragrant and fresh. Would blend well with green tea.

This tea is rapidly becoming my second favorite (next to Darjeeling!). It was my first cup this morning, and I’ve continued drinking it through the day. It has a beautiful deep golden color and sweet, rich flavor.

A full-bodied, rich, tea. An excellent morning cup!

I’ve served this twice now at my EFM study group, and gotten very positive reactions each time. My friends comment on the clean flavor and warm aroma.

Yep, it’s a keeper!

Came back from a walk at the beach feeling absolutely parched for a cup of tea. This tea is exactly what i was looking for – bright, refreshing and very thirst quenching.

Jealous.

Cynthia Carter

Too bad! ;)

I’ll remember this. You may think I won’t, but I will.

An excellent tea for everyday drinking – good with milk and sugar, or by itself.
