This is also a nice summer tea, iced.

Very nice. Decaf process hasn’t stripped out the gentle flavor.

Well this was the last of the sample tin I got with my first Adagio order. It’s a decent flavoured tea but I don’t think I’d buy a whole 4oz canister of it. It’s a shame that custom blends like the Zodiac series don’t come in sample tins. I think I’d be more interested in trying them if I didn’t have to commit to a big thing of tea I might not like.

Cool! I’ve looked around Adagio’s site in the past and I didn’t find this. Maybe a seperate category for sample sets is needed?

inguna

I know it’s hard to find and you can only buy the whole set but perhaps you can split the cost with a friend?

Jillian

Definitely something to consider, thank you. :)

Another tea I’m almost out of – a good thing I suppose, because my tea cupboard is full to overflowing. I’m trying drink up the older stuff first before I start on some of my newer teas like the order I got from SpecialTeas or my Andrew & Durnham Series 1 set.

I just ordered a sample of this and can’t wait to try it. :)

I’ve just realize that I don’t really care for the smell of this tea – it’s almost too sickly sweet. Luckily the tea itself is toned down, otherwise I’d probably be gagging on it!

How much of a deal breaker is the “smell” of your teas? I had a huge issue with the Honeybush Vanilla from Teavana that made me gag, however the tea itself wasn’t to strong.

Jillian

For me it isn’t a huge deal as my nose tends to adapt to scents quickly so I no longer smell them. Still, I suppose it does take away from the whole ‘experience of tea’ if you’re into that.

Cofftea

Eric, you mean like Adagio’s white cucumber? lol;)

Eric Walter

haha I hope I’m not the only one that’s “into that”. Maybe I need to keep trying? Did you get your “Zodiac Series” as a complimentary purchase?

Jillian

Yes, it’s matched with your birthday. Since my birthday is in July and I fall under the Cancer Zodiac sign, that was the tea I got. It’s only a sample-sized container so if it turns out you don’t care for the one you get then it’s really not much waste.

Cofftea

I don’t like that Adagio won’t let you write reviews on the free samples they give you.

LENA

smell is HUGE for me. I go on and try the tea, but I smell everything first.

Was steeping this and another tea for my boyfriend and I accidently added honey to this tea instead of his. I don’t think I added much though since this isn’t tasting much sweeter than usual. The chamomile really is the dominent flavour in this tea with its naturally sweet, semi-creamy apple/pineapple flavour.

Rrr, I need to get a filter with a finer mesh for this tea because I HATE having to pick bits of rooibos and chamomille out of my teeth after I drink it!

Mmm, I was right this does taste very good iced. No sweetener required!

This tastes quite sweet to me tonight for some reason. This is another tea that would probably be delicious iced – in fact I might do just that with the second steeping.

And Cynthia is right, this tea is out of stock and I’m more than half-finished the sample tin I got with my order. is a sad panda :(

Cynthia Carter

Jillian – Adagio has this back in stock.

This is nice and refreshing for when I’m studying in the evening without giving me a huge caffein jolt.

Camomille and green tea with fruity undertones make this Cancer girl a happy camper. Steeped for 3 min in steaming water.

There was a significant amount of fine debris – probably from the camomille – that had escaped my strainer at the bottom of my cup, which was a little annoying.

Delicious tea. Has a great taste, even unsweetened. One of my favorites so far.

My first loose leaf oolong and it’s better than expected! The dried tea is very earthy and musky. However, it came out tasting a lot lighter and smoother than I would have guessed. The flavors are earthy, woody and a bit grassy. If you’re not too familiar with oolongs (like me), you should give this a try. I enjoyed it.

Tasted more like artificial Amaretto flavoring than real almonds. Could be good mixed with something though.

I tried to like it. I wanted to like it. BUT…I don’t. This tea smells musty, tastes sharp at first then turns super dry. It’s almost like a dry white wine but without the promise of a little buzz. Does anyone want my sample tin? I’ll trade ya!

Using up the last of my sample of this tea. This time I used about twice the number of leaves, because I am discovering that I am too stingy with leaves in general when brewing. I also steeped it just a little less. Gorgeous, dark, fragrant, fresh tasting tea. I think I am discovering a preference for indian teas.

I get a little stingy when I get to the bottom of a tin too. :) I’m glad I have this one on my next “to buy” list. Sounds really nice.

Hyrulehippie

I know I’m too stingy, but I find it difficult to use more leaves. Let’s learn to loosen that grip together!

I bought a sample of this as part of Adagio’s black tea sampler. It’s a robust, flavorful and fragrant tea. Stands up well to milk and sugar, or very refreshing and clean tasting on it’s own.

drank Grapefruit Oolong by Adagio Teas
30 tasting notes

This was good, but I don’t care for grapefruit. Although, it had more of just a general citrus flavor. (Which I don’t prefer either.) Don’t get me wrong though – it was still pretty good.

I’m pretty sure I am an oolong fan now. I seem to be okay with each one I try!

drank Chocolate Chip by Adagio Teas

Another tea used up. I’m going to get a full 4 oz canister of this the next time I order from Adagio – damn this tea is good!

Slowly but surely I’m using up or trading away all my old teas – only to make room for new ones, of course. ;)

Boiling

drank Chocolate Chip by Adagio Teas
1722 tasting notes

I resteeped the leaves while I was making supper. The result is a lighter brew that doesn’t need milk (and would probably be the worse for it if you did). The chocolate flavour is still there but it’s more hidden; you have to look for it in each sip.

“look for it in each sip”… now I’m imagining a tongue w/ eyes=P

drank Chocolate Chip by Adagio Teas
1722 tasting notes

I’m going to miss this tea when it’s gone (which will be soon); it’s so smooth it practically caresses the tongue as it goes down. I think I might be detecting a hint of vanilla in it too, now that I think about it.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

How does this work for resteeps? I’d think the chocolate flavor would drop off much quicker than their plain chocolate tea cuz the chips melt in the 1st cup.

Mitch Donaberger

Bleh. Chocolate teas make me sick. I don’t know what it is about them. The flavor just never settles with me.

Ricky

Part of me wants to take my remaining Ceylon and just toss a few pieces of chocolate chips inside the tin.

Ricky

+ 1 for editing comments. Excuse my malformed sentence. I need some caffeine.
