I thought this was on the verge of being a plain jane type of tea but there is a hint of something that the end that makes it a bit different but in a good way. Yup! I can see this being a good morning or afternoon tea!

This is the last of my stash. I have been thinking about making a purchase from Adagio because I have so many credits there…but have been trying to wait for some new stuff. Anyone know of any future new stuff from Adagio? Also…been thinking about some blends…that’s prob the way I will go.

Anyhow…I over infused for amount and length and this was still good.

Cofftea

I have a crap load of points as well. I want those chocolates and cookies!

TeaEqualsBliss

I hear they are still on back order!!! Oye!
I think I will just get some blends. If you have any extra blends laying around…hint hint :P
CHEERS!

Cofftea

We’ll never see them. I’ll be shocked if we do.

Erin

“just get some blends”?! just how many points do you have??

TeaEqualsBliss

Not as many as Cofftea! LOL I think I have $49 FREE worth coming…

Cofftea

LOL yeah I have about $140.

Erin

wow.

just wow.

to both of you.

Adagio is probably the one place I haven’t bought from yet. (Well, not the only one but the main one with a big inventory.) Given that people seem to have a love/hate relationship with them I am wondering whether I should order some samples from them or skip it? What do you guys thing?

Cofftea

Don’t skip it, form your own opinion!

TeaEqualsBliss

I agree, don’t skip it…and I’m not just saying that because I do like their company and their teas…I agree, you must form y our own opinion…you won’t know unless you try! I will say the first time I ordered from them I used the online chat feature and “Christine” was on the other end and I told her my tea interests and she was awesome suggesting teas to try. She did suggest sampler packs as well and I think they are a good way to go for trying several of their teas without spending a buttload of money right away :)

If you are interested in $5 coupon on your first order – let me know I can send you an email coupon…just need your email address if you want to PM it to me.

Had this as my first cup this morning…didn’t overdue it with the amount of loose leaf and went by the suggested time. It was good but not overly strong as usual.

The coloring of this is extremely dark today…I don’t remember it being this dark…hum…smells a little fruity, a little smoky. Taste is nice! Fully and malty!

I’ve only tried one yunnan and the jury is still out. Do you drink yours plain or sweetened?

This is my first tea of the day…yay! It’s going to be another cold day PLUS I have to do some bell ringing for the Salvation Army for work today so I SHOULD take out a mug…I just may…anyhow…I will be ‘drinking’ a lot again today…wait…that sounds like I have a problem! LOL

takgoti

You should drink it out of a paper bag whilst bell ringing. That would amuse me.

Bold but Comforting. Is that possible!? Why-YESYES, it is! :P

Cofftea

I definitely agree. Anything warm is always comforting to me as well as flavors I like. L-theanine is comforting in general.:)

I was so sad when I drank my last bit of this. BUT…I received a LINK REWARDS Package and this was one of them. YAY! It’s bold. It’s Dark. It’s powerful. Perfect for this morning!

After this cuppa I’m officially out of this tea from my stash…bummer…it was good while it lasted. Altho I have read some other reviews here about the “cigarette” type taste…I have noticed this with my last cup – I oversteeped AND added more than the suggested amount of loose leaf to the steep…I can see how some may pick up the smoky tones…I do believe, or at least with my latest experience, the cigarette-type taste (or aftertaste) may come from steeping too much – too long…suggestion – steep less for a shorter time – as I haven’t noticed that until now…might be more pleasant for you. I did, however, enjoy my overall time with this tea and will, again, revisit it, someday…

Drastically Oversteeped but still a great cup. If you oversteep by mistake – still drink it – it’s quite nice!!!!

I finally purchased this and I’m glad I did! It’s scent is not overbearing by any means. There isn’t too much of one scent but it’s reminiscent of several things. Typical Black Tea Color. Taste is Medium to Medium – Strong depending on how you steep and right at the end of the sip there’s an upward sweetness almost. Great cuppa to start the day!!!

Blended Adagio’s Ceylon Sonata with their Peppermint. Not too bad. You don’t need that much peppermint to pair with it tho. Worth a try anyhow.

Adagio’s Earl Grey Bravo (Pale – previously steeped several times) paired with a already steeped Valentine’s…just for shits and giggles…and ICED. It sounds strange but it was actually quite good.

Se Chung Special Oolong paired with Moroccan Mint from Republic of Tea – steeped APPROX 3 mins. Not Bad…might try more Mint next time tho…

Equal parts Infusion Tea Plum Oolong (Resteep – weak) and Teavana Earl Grey. You can taste the Earl Grey with hints of oolong and plum. It blends nicely.
