drank Gingerbread by Adagio Teas
202 tasting notes

I got this in a swap and I honestly can’t taste the gingerbread flavor at all. My boyfriend also has a small tin of this from the Holiday Cheer set that I gave his parents last year when I visited and that one doesn’t taste gingerbread-y either.

So on the front of being gingerbread flavored, it loses points. But it is still a decent black tea. It has some vanilla-y notes but mostly just tastes like a ceylon. I definitely won’t buy this again but if it comes my way, I’ll still drink it.

Flavors: Vanilla

Any idea how old it is? I could definitely taste the gingerbread when I tried this (although it still wasn’t one of my favorites, I like gingerbread with strong molasses notes, and the flavor was a bit artificial as well).

No idea how old the one in my collection is but the one that I gave to my boyfriend’s parents I tried when I first gave it to them last December and again when it was around 6 months old but I doubt it was stored well. I couldn’t taste any difference between the gingerbread or the pumpkin spice teas :/

Definitely did not taste like gingerbread to me. It tasted more like chemicals or some really awful flavoring. Tried brew multiple ways, and trying with milk and sugar and without it. Definitely do not recommend.

drank Rooibos Caramel by Adagio Teas

Caramel is the first thing you smell when you open this bag f tea. Sweet glorious caramel! before adding anything special, I tried it plain with just your basic sweetener. Sugar. It was nothing special in my books, but when i added my nondairy cream it became a pretty good desert tea!

Flavors: Caramel

drank Almond Oolong by Adagio Teas
7 tasting notes

Right outta the package this tea smells like a really sweet marzipan. after brewing it looses a lot its sweet almond smell but has a beautiful golden-brown liquor. The flavor (if brewed properly) is very smooth with sweet almond notes that come through just enough that its not overpowering. Overall this is an amazing tea and ill defiantly will be purchasing this again!

Flavors: Almond, Nutty, Sweet

This was my first time with this tea. I ordered a sample to determine whether or not it will join my regular rotation of teas.

The aroma of this tea has the earthy notes that mark a Puerh, but were milder than expected. The strawberry really announced itself as well.

The liqueur found the Puerh tones were indeed muted, and a touch on the creamy side. The aromatic strawberries were practically missing in taste, with the nuttiness of the hazelnuts only really showing up in the aftertaste.

Even when brewed for the recommended time, it comes across as underpowered in taste. I believe I’ll increase both the amount of tea used as well as the time when I try my second cup.

For someone new to Puerhs this is a great introduction, however I’m not sure this one hits the same marks for those with a more expereinced palate.

Once again, going to remove an item from inventory and realizing it was never a part of my inventory. I need to keep that updated. This was a pretty unique pu’erh, especially fruity. Read my full review, here: http://www.createwritedrink.com/2015/08/tea-review-tuesday-review-of-adagio-tea.html

drank Rooibos Vanilla by Adagio Teas
202 tasting notes

This is tolerable. It’s been sitting in my collection for so long and I just want to finish it up. I’ve made three cups of it today and it’s just not getting better. It’s woodsy and the vanilla is lacking.

Flavors: Wood

I like some of Adagio’s honeybush and green rooibos blends, but I think the only one of their rooibos blends I like is rooibos earl grey.

I’ve actually heard that before but when I ordered from Adagio last I was put off by the idea of mixing earl grey and rooibos. The only teas that I truly love from Adagio anymore are their flavored blacks but I’m out of their Chestnut Tea so when I get around to ordering more I’ll have to pick up a sample of the Rooibos Earl Grey as well. I’ve tried Tea Guys’ Earl Grey Rooibos and it’s just alright but the bergamot totally overpowers the rooibos so that was a let down in my book :/

I’m really surprised that this tea is rated as low as it is (currently). It is sweet, smooth, and has a few layers of flavors to chew on. Over steeping can lead to bitterness but it shouldn’t be an issue if you are paying attention. Then again, I may be bias because as a Scorpio, it could just naturally agree with my palate! ;)

Flavors: Chocolate, Fruity

A delicious, strong tea with malty undertones and a rich cocoa scent. I used 4 pearls since my standard cup is a 16oz. cup that I fill up with approx 14oz. of water.

Flavors: Cocoa, Malt

drank White Monkey by Adagio Teas
53 tasting notes

Of the three Adagio samples I received, this one was my favorite. There is still an astringent flavor the loomed over all three samples, but with this one it didn’t feel out of place. There was a smoothness to the astringency that made it pleasant to drink. A balance that didn’t make anything seem out of place.

COLD BREW
Mild in flavor, no sign of astringency. Delicious!

Flavors: Astringent, Grass

drank Pu Erh Tahiti by Adagio Teas

I had a sample of this and apparently never logged it in Steepster, so when I went to remove it from my inventory, I found that it was already removed.
I do, however, have a longer review, here: http://www.createwritedrink.com/2015/08/tea-review-tuesday-review-of-adagio.html

Well, it certainly smells like mango in the bag, but to me it just tastes kinda grassy like green tea. Adding honey does help bring more of the flavor out. I drink this at work, but I do wish it had more fruit flavor.

I decided to try a sample of this tea because I love artichokes and it sounded interesting. I’m not really sure what to make of it. It smells peachy and tastes a bit grassy. Sometimes you get a hint of artichoke at the end. I would recommend others try this as a sample first. Very interesting and unique.

Tastes like I expected chocolate orange tea to taste. Smooth and chocolatey with a hint of orange. A nice tea for weekend mornings or when you are lounging around. This complemented my hazelnut chocolate granola breakfast perfectly.

I love this tea. It is very refreshing and relaxing. Minty with a hint of vanilla – yum. I was also surprised to find so many flowers in the tea. I almost giggled when I opened the container

drank Anhui Keemun by Adagio Teas
2119 tasting notes

Perhaps it’s because I already have them on my mind, but the flavors of this Keemun remind me of s’mores. The tea has a silky-smooth texture similar to melted chocolate, you can almost taste it on your tongue if you close your eyes and concentrate. There are subtle notes of graham flour and brown sugar—then comes the smoke. It’s mellow compared to a pine-smoked tea such as Lapsang Souchong, which is why I prefer Keemun when I want to enjoy the flavors of autumn in my cup.
