drank Cream by Adagio Teas
56 tasting notes

Got this one on my first adagios order ever. Its good to mix with others makes then creamier i usually end up mixing it with earl gray tea’s. On its own its a little astringent, so i dint think i liked this one so much, but now that i’m on my last cup I’m going to miss it. when i finish some of my older teas in my cabinet ill consider getting a bit more of this one.

drank Valentines by Adagio Teas
56 tasting notes

I got this for my hubby as a gift he dint liked it. I have learned he doesn’t like strawberry and chocolate flavors together. Oh well. As for my opinion its and just OKEY tea. I brewd it with a dash of almond milk, i got a strong flavor of chocolate but not enough strawberry in my opinion.

Flavors: Almond, Chocolate, Rose

drank Irish Breakfast by Adagio Teas
58 tasting notes

I received this as a sample from Adagio last weekend, and figured it’d be the perfect tea to kickstart my St. Patty’s Day celebrations. This morning, I went to Mariano’s (one of the grocery stores in Chicago) and bought some of their delicious soda bread, along with some Kerry Gold butter (I rarely keep butter in my apartment, so this was a treat) and decided to enjoy them with some Irish Breakfast tea as soon as I got home.

This tea is pleasantly malty, and stands up well to cream and sugar. Nothing about it sets it apart from other Irish breakfast blends, but I wasn’t expecting it to.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Lemon Grass by Adagio Teas
41 tasting notes

I think I enjoyed this even more because it soothed a sore throat. I love lemongrass. The aroma is pleasant and the taste is refreshing. I took a few sips and then added some honey for sweetness. It was a good combination!

Flavors: Lemon, Lemongrass

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 14 OZ / 400 ML

The apple taste and aroma is pretty subtle. I enjoyed this tea best in small sips. Nothing too amazing but it makes a nice drink to relax in the evening!

drank Rwanda Rukeri by Adagio Teas
33 tasting notes

I got this as a free sample with my last order from Adagio. I’ve been quite impressed so far. For an inexpensive tea, it has a great complexity of flavor. Overall it has a slight astringency, but not too much. There is even a touch of sweetness in the cup. Very typical assam flavor profile with perhaps a bit more of a bite. Not strong astringency, but just a more defined profile. It’s hard to explain.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

A nice warming mix of spices. The ginger leaves behind a faint burning heat on the tongue. I usually find chai too strong with clove, but here it didn’t overwhelm the other spices. I added just a little sweetener and a splash of almond milk and curled up on the couch with my cup.

drank Yunnan Gold by Adagio Teas

I enjoy this – it is malty and bready and I felt like it had a sweetness, possibly even chocolatey lean. Too bad my cats chose to knock my mug over and I will now be wearing it to work as well.

I’m not sure how I feel about this tea. I love hazelnut, but am still not sure if I enjoy it in a tea. If you like hazelnut I would definitely give it a try!

drank Thai Chai by Adagio Teas
5 tasting notes

I made an account just to complain about how bad this tea is (and remind myself to never buy it, ever again). This tea tastes like soup to me. Maybe some people are into that, IDK. I’m really not. It’s not appetizing at all. I’ll just pop over to the closest Thai restaurant and order some Tom Kha rather than drink a “tea” that tastes just like it.
Oh, and it has no chai taste whatsoever. None!!

drank Tiger Eye by Adagio Teas
58 tasting notes

Since I discovered Adagio a year ago, I’ve tried several of their teas and have found them inconsistent. Some I find tasteless, no matter how I steep them, and others – such as this one – are wonderful. I first received this as a sample from the Old Orchard store in Skokie when I was purchasing something else. Considering that some of their flavored teas have fallen short for me in the past, I was in no hurry to try this one. I’m glad I finally did! In the past few weeks, I’ve finished my entire sample bag (quick tangent: THANK YOU Adagio for giving customers sample packages that contain enough tea to make several cups – you can’t always form a complete opinion on tea from your first cup or two!) and have returned to the store to purchase a 3oz bag of the stuff.

I like this tea best when I add a little sugar (which enhances the sweet caramel flavor) and no cream. I find that adding even a little bit of cream drowns out the caramel flavors that make this tea so wonderful. I can see myself adding this to my regular rotation!

Flavors: Caramel

drank Tiger Eye by Adagio Teas
58 tasting notes

This is one of my favorites from Adagio so far. With some sugar added, it’s got a nice caramel flavor. When I let it cool down a little, I can also taste some chocolate. This is a great tea for a mid-day caffeine pick-me-up.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate

drank White Peach by Adagio Teas

Delicious peachy tea, with a smooth white tea flavor underneath. I think this tea is very well balanced, and tastes delicious. My only dislike is that it isn’t very strong unless I use a little more than the recommended amount of tea

Flavors: Apricot, Floral, Peach, Sweet

Preparation

drank Sleeping Dragon by Adagio Teas
264 tasting notes

Holidays TTB: Took the kettle off before it whistled for this. I can’t wait until my Tea Maker comes in later this week so I know that I’m using correct temperatures. I ended up adding some sweetener to this and it brought out an almost juicy flavor and texture. There is a bit of a grassy flavor and something else. My guess would be some sort of citrus or melon flavor?

drank Pi Lo Chun by Adagio Teas
27 tasting notes

I opened this bag of tea from Adagio and the first thing I smelled was fish. I thought that it was just a strong odor from being packed too long, so I let it air out before making myself a cup.

I steeped this tea with a few different temperatures and a few different water ratios, and each time I got a nutty salmon taste. It was the grossest green tea I’ve had so far.

I would rate this tea much lower, but this was one of the better qualities of fish broth I’ve had.

Flavors: Fish Broth, Fishy, Nutty, Sour
