drank Apricot by Adagio Teas
1267 tasting notes

I love apricots. But while this tea definitely smells and tastes like apricots, idk… It just reminds me of your average southern fruits sort of tea. Maybe the ones I’ve had have just been overwhelmingly apricot-y but no matter what, nothing about this tea really surprised me.

It’s a great tea, very delicious, just not one that really stands out to me. I’m not sure if it’s one I’ll purchase again or not. Maybe if the mood strikes me.

Really enjoying this the second time around. Can’t see how I didn’t appreciate more the first time. Extremely smooth with just a hint of spice.

drank Vanilla by Adagio Teas
1267 tasting notes

The leaves smell very sweet and when steeped the scent of vanilla is still strong and full.

It’s easy to find the vanilla in the flavour too, but if you’re looking for the sweet sort of vanilla sugar flavour that you get in ice creams or desserts you’re going to get disappointed. This isn’t so overwhelmingly sweet as that, but it’s definitely there and it’s definitely vanilla.

I saw another reviewer here suggest mixing it with fruity teas. I’ll have to try that.

aromas of wood, root, light briskness, and gentle plum sweetness/tartness

Usually my attempts to brew this have ended bitterly, so I tend to favor that Leo Zodiac blend for my decaf fix. This time I decided to try it with a 3 minute steep as opposed to the 5, and it seems to have done the trick. No bitterness whatsoever.

drank Raspberry by Adagio Teas
1267 tasting notes

Leaves smell very sweet and fruity. Very nice.
The colour strikes me a kind of boring light golden brown. It doesn’t look bad, it just looks very average.
It doesn’t taste very fruity. I can find the raspberry, but it’s rather subtle and not enormously sweet. I like that, and I think it might benefit from a little sugar. I’ll have to experiment wtih that.

This is nice but I think I prefer #22 a bit more. Enjoyed it with a mini Cannoli.

drank Hazelnut by Adagio Teas
1267 tasting notes

The leaves smell sort of like I would imagine Nutella concentrate would smell like if it existed. Already before actually tasting it, I’m finding myself considering an experiment involving chocolate milk.
The colour’s nicely golden-red and you can really smell the nuts in the scent.
It’s not at all as sweet as I had expected. It’s very nutty and very delicious actually. I’m definitely going to conduct some experiments with sugar, milk and chocolate milk, and I might buy this tea again.

Nice standard tea. One of my favorite morning teas.

drank Guanabana by Adagio Teas
1267 tasting notes

I had never heard of this before, but apparently it’s some sort of tropical fruit that we others can’t get because the fruit doesn’t transport very well.
The dry leaves smell weird. Sort of fruity and bitter at the same time. Like a very old orange. At this point I’m sceptic. Very sceptic.
Colour is nice and golden and the scent is something familiar that I can’t quite place. It’s not mouldy oranges anymore anyway.
The taste is…. strange. Fruity. Adagio suggests something akin to candied strawberry and pineapple. I can’t really ‘find’ those notes but at the same time I don’t really disagree either. I can’t tell when I don’t know how the fruit is supposed to taste.

I like it. I don’t think I’ll stock up on it once I’ve got through the sample, but I like it.
