This tea was too weak this morning. I used only one teaspoon in 8 oz. I did love the flavor, and I’m planning to try more later…
So my next cup was delicious and chocolatey. I used 2 teaspoons in 8 oz water for about 5 minutes.
I love it…. It’s double chocolate extra chai layers of goodness!
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Clove, Coconut
i am confused.
this is supposed to be a teen wolf, tiger’s eye, with cacao nibs added for extra punch tea? adagio…. are you sure?
i smell a non alcoholic poire william. caramelized pear…. the homemade gooey kind of caramel that you have to scrape off, and even when you don’t see it anymore you still leave sticky fingerprints all over, that kind of caramel. and i find the pear to be highly specific as opposed to ‘strange i don’t get that’… a beautifully golden ripe anjou. really not random. also really not teen wolf.
taste: as always no caramel, but it smells lovely! the smell is strong enough that it contributes to the taste, and true enough that it doesn’t smell fake. always nice to have veracity over excessiveness!!
nice and smooth, tasty with xylitol and a bit of cream….. i get no cacao and no dog though….?
Mixed this 75/25 with the Adagio Cream tea because alone its flavor is a little overwhelming. This was one of the first teas I ever bought and boy am I glad I gave myself time to retry it before giving up on it. Now that I’ve had more varieties of tea I think I can truly say that I like this. The pumpkin is lovely and very light when the cream is completely mellowing things out.
I wasn’t really sold on this tea the first time I had it – it was good but not great, and nothing really stood out. The next time I made it I sweetened it and all of a sudden it was delicious! :) Very nice and fruity, and the pomegranate balances out the apricot flavour. Delicious!
My favourite from the Tea Wolf sampler set so far :D First steep was amazingly delicious – hits of sweet caramel supported by the light vanilla oolong. Re-steeps kept the caramel flavour, while letting the oolong through (second and third steeps of oolong taste the best!)
Overall, delicious. A++, will buy again.
Very delicious! First steeping, I slightly over-steeped and used a little bit of sugar to counter-act the tannins, but it was still delicious! The bergamot was enhanced by the sweet honeybush, but I didn’t taste much of the blood orange. 2 re-steeps were similarly tasty. Overall, a delicious Earl Grey blend!
I’m still not sure how I feel about this blend…The smell of the dry tea is unpleasant to me, kind of chemical, but my son Drew really likes the smell of it. I don’t taste any pumpkin, & at first sip, my mouth & all its part say, “yum”, but then after a few sips, it tastes kind of phony. I’ve tried it plain (mehhh), I’ve tried it with stevia, which is better. I also tried it with coconut milk, which wasn’t as good as I’d hoped. I’ll probably let Drew drink up the rest of the blend, as he really likes it (along with Farewell Ponds)
I saw this tea on Adagio’s site, & who could resist? It’s a blend of Almond oolong, pumpkin spice, & tiger eye, with some cacao nibs thrown in for an extra treat. For my own education, I also ordered sample sizes of all three tea components, which I’ll review individually at some later time. This was my first order from Adagio.
The dry tea smells terrible, in my opinion. Very chemical smelling.
I steeped: 1.5 tsp for 3 minutes
The brewed tea smells: well, truthfully, I’m not really smelling much…black tea…a hint of caramel..
I left it sit on my counter for a few minutes while I stepped out into my garden to pick a few things: A mix of lettuces, a daikon radish, some cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, looks like I’m having a little salad with dinner!
So the tea: plain, it’s meh, but a bit of stevia changed that. There is a caramel note, a little almond, where are the spices? Maybe my taste buds just aren’t picking things up like they should. I admit, I’m not usually a huge fan of flavored teas, because in most cases you have to add some kind of sweetener to experience the flavors. I’m also not really getting a mouth-feel of much…no thick chocolate sensation, no bright butteryness. On the good side, it’s not excessively drying either.
It’s not bad, & again, some of that may be my tastebuds. Many of us have noticed that our taste for a tea changes from time to time. Obviously, when we’re sick we’re affected, but who knows what else might effect our ability to perceive flavors, sensations, aromas, etc. So, although this may not be my favorite cup of the day (that was the Zhu Rong Yunnan), it’s not a bad tasting tea either. I don’t dislike it, & I’ll drink some more on another day & report my findings! :D
sorry guise. but the only way i’m gonna get any notes in about these teas is if my notes have nothing to do with the teas. so welcome to gab central!
(me and a usual chat co-worker haven’t been in contact for a week or so!)
HER: i’m just trying to process about five billion contracts. it’s nonsense.
ME: when i don’t hear from you i do always think ‘contracts’
HER: they are NONSENSE and I hate them.
ME: if contracts could be personified i would call Captain America and have him knee contracts in the balls.
ME: (umm i may currently be obsessed with the Avenger btw)
then my co-worker across the hallway just came and asked me if i wanted his oatmeal raisin cookies.
i said fuck yeah i want your oatmeal raisin cookies.
this is a nice little tea. still teen wolf gimicky, but smelled yummy!
two weekends ago i went to a rave in the woods!
we camped, brought in tents and chairs and coolers, and the sun was still up when we got there and the djs were already playing. and as the sun slowly set the party really came alive. the light show was so vibrant against the darkness of the woods. and i danced to a new song that i have played on repeat ever since!

I have yet to try Adagio’s earl grey bravo straight, but so fair I’ve liked it in the blends I’ve had. Here, it’s mixed with blood orange and vanilla honeybush. It definitely had an orange flavor to it, and while I thought that the body of the tea was a bit weak sometimes, it made for a reliable morning cup with no extra sweetness necessary.
hi, my name is shmiracles and i have a fanfic problem. i could say it’s a reading problem. but i also re-watch the movies and read comics.
seriously, it’s interfering with my work. and my life.
but mostly it is interfering with my tea logging! cuz i have been drinking tea so much tea, and i’m not making any notes! i have about 10 teas to make notes on. and i’m about to drink a few more!
it’s piling up.
but i enjoyed all the Teen Wolf teas my sister bought. they weren’t necessarily memorable. and most of them had too much rooibos or honeybush in them to gain my true enthusiasm. but they were tasty enough! i’d never turn a cup down.
This was one of the first loose leaf blends I tried, and for that reason alone, I am fond of it. It made a good morning cup of tea, though it’s a bit finicky and sometimes the bag needed shaking up. When steeped at less than boiling for about 3 minutes (or a smidge less), the almond oolong and caramel got along perfectly well. Go a little bit long and it was too bitter for my tastes. I won’t be ordering this again for a while, but it was fun while it lasted.
oh noes. i have 8 teas that i logged and have to write reviews for. from this weekend.
got a bit behind.
i saw Iron Man 3 on sunday and as soon as it ended i felt like i could watch it again.
so i went home and watched the first hour of The Avengers. then tried to watch the first 2 Iron Mans.
went dancing saturday night. and drank a lot. and grabbed toooo many butts. i’m sure of it.
i personally think this tea is fairly dull for such a bold and jittery character. but it’s a drinkable tea.
there are may be something like 4 boxes of tea i should be putting together and mailing out but all i keep doing is reading in my room and ignoring all my responsibilities. and tea sample mailings is one of those responsibilities i’m ignoring evidently.
This is a really nice light blend, and it’s not killing you with flavors. There’s a nice touch of spice from the ginger, but it doesn’t hit you the same way cinnamon does.There’s definitely a peach taste, and an earthy feel from the white tea and oolong. Very good blend overall!
