The Best Chocolate Tea I’ve ever had. HANDS DOWN.

KeenTeaThyme- you can blend a mean tea my friend! (Thanks for the sample as well!)

Its perfect. All flavors really blend well together and there isn’t an overpowering or overwhelming chocolate flav to it. Just a nice hint.

Gonna need a bag of this one too!

KeenTeaThyme

So glad you like this one too. :) I can’t get enough of it; I have to order a second bag soon…

Kristen

ooohhh this sounds yummy!

3rd infusion. . .and smoky flavor is still going strong! Yum! I’m having trouble switching to anything else today. I am in love with this one.

KeenTeaThyme

I’m surprised (and pleased) that the third infusion worked. Sweet! :) (And you are sweet for your kind words too.)

Oh my gosh. I feel like I’m 10 again sitting by the fire listening to my dad tell ghost stories. . .sorry for the flashback there.

This one is such a fantastic blend! Its smoky and creamy all at the same time. It seriously smells like a campfire. That alone is fantastic, then the more you drink it (or devour it like I am right now) all of the flavors mingle perfectly. Very savory! Love it!

Thanks KeenTeaThyme for the sample of it. I’m loving it!!

KeenTeaThyme

So glad you like it! :) I thought of the whole ghost-stories-around-the-campfire anecdote too. Of course. :)

Nichole

Of course you did!! :) (hahaha)

Steeping up another cup- Wow, still soo good and sooo smoky/creamy. Love it! I think I need a bag of my own ;)

This made a great choice for an afternoon treat this Valentines day. Paired it with a Raspberry Cheesecake cookie and it was sinful. I get almost a tingle on my tongue from sipping this tea. I’m not sure what makes that come across. I really like how the cherry and cream blend together, and the chocolate makes it even more delectable. Great blend! I will have to pick some of this up next adagio order!

This is a nice medley of chocolate mint and green tea. The chocolate mint flavor is light, subtle, a kiss.

My first Adagio custom blend arrived today! I was so excited to make this tea, especially after noting that adagio didn’t really make a berry blended green rooibos when they created the green rooibos collection.

Even with just 30% berry blues, I can really taste the blueberry in this blend. It isn’t over the top or too tart that I need to add sugar. I think it is just right! There is a light citrus herbal tone from the lemongrass, and the flavor from the rooibos still shines through. I’m really happy I made this tea and can’t wait to try it iced. I’m hoping this will be a perfect evening blend for those nights I want something fruity and decaf!

Oh, I might be a bit biased on the rating as I created this myself, but if you would care to try a little and give me some feedback on this tea, shoot me a pm or comment and I can send some off to you!

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

Ooh, this sounds pretty good. I definitely wouldn’t mind trying it out sometime.

KeenTeaThyme

I’m ordering this during my next Adagio run. Love the pic. :)

Nichole

Sounds like Blueberry Heaven to me!!!

Uniquity

I only have one green rooibos and it’s got lotsa strong weird flavours…This, on the other hand, sounds lovely. But I’m a nut for lemongrass and I love blueberry.

2nd infusion, still yum!!!
Love the movies (i’m a huge horror nut) and now I have the perfect horror tea to watch with my movies!

JacquelineM

I was always a huge horror scardey cat until I saw the Nightmare on Elm Street movies from the 1980s – Freddy is so campy and hysterically funny!

TeaEqualsBliss

OMG! You bought MY blend! :) Cool!!!!! I haven’t even bought this one! LOL

Nichole

It was a Valentine’s Gift. And its awesome! I still have your addy, I’ll send you some! And I didn’t even know it was your blend until I looked it up on Adagio. Crazy!!

TeaEqualsBliss

Nichole

Yep, I’m on gchat :)

Thanks to the lovely Meghann M, my SweeTEA, for this Adagio creation by Tanya Laird. I am a nut for anything gunpowder, so naturally this blend of gunpowder, decaf spiced green and blood orange would appeal to me.
This is a fun, unique blend I plan on purchasing for myself when I run out.
The first sip is bold, orange-y and spicy, deliciously smooth. The aftertaste is a little bit smoky (thanks to the gunpowder), and still orange&spice.
I enjoy this at work in the afternoons. It’s calming and soothing, but not sleep-inducing!
Meghann, thank you for opening my eyes to this awesome blend! :)

Batrachoid

Any tea based on Ms Amos’s lyrics is bound to be good. Do they have this up on their site?

Meghann M

Yay, I’m glad you liked it. I saw a tasting note of yours that mentioned Gunpowder was a fav tea of yours and thought this would be right up your alley:)

atuinsails

Sounds interesting. I’ve been crawling over the adagio website looking for a spicy blood orange, sounds this might be worth a try.

Meghann M

Batrachoid, the creator has several teas created based off Tori’s lyrics. That’s what drew me to them at first. Here is a link to the Riot Proof blend:

KeenTeaThyme

@Meghann M: You guessed right! I love the blend – so unique. I will be buying it once I run out, which is bound to be soon. :)
@atuinsails: YES this is awesome spicy orange. The gunpowder adds a hint of smokiness too. If you’d like me to send over a sample, I will gladly share. Just PM me your addy and I can send out tomorrow. :)

No rating as this is my own. I think I’ll create this one for my shop as well, because that Adagio black tea flavor is so annoying. I love the medley of cream, chocolate and cherry – although now I crave black forest cake! Or any cake! Diets suck.

CHAroma

I agree. Diets really suck. The only thing that gets me through a diet is that I can drink as much tea as I want!

No rating as this is my own custom blend. I really do enjoy the bold flavors in this cuppa, although I can’t really taste anything thanks to this rotten cold/flu thing. (My voice sounds very throaty. Not so great at work, but my singing voice has improved.)

CHAroma

Feel better soon!

Ninavampi

Get better soon! I’m still sick and all tea tastes like hot water… :(

No rating as this is one of my own custom blends from Adagio. I really do love how you can taste each flavor in each sip: cherry, chocolate and cream. Yums. Much needed today!

No rating as this is one of mine. I needed a little caffeine and sweet treat fix, and this fit the bill. My only complaint is I can only have a limited amount of caffeine a day! How to cope?!

gmathis

Is your dr. OK with herbals/tisanes/decaf?

CHAroma

Wow, you chose a FANTASTIC photo and name for your custom tea blend! If it tastes half as good as it looks, I’m sure it’s a real winner!

SimpliciTEA

Agreed on the picture.

That is a bummer about your caffeine situation, KeenTeaThyme.

I really do enjoy this cup of cherries, chocolate and cream – with no fat! I do add sweetener as I find some of Adagio’s teas are too astringent. If anyone wants a sample, PM me. :) I like to keep my stock rotating so I can buy more!

No rating as this is one of my own blends.

I just love the mix of chocolate, vanilla (cream) and cherry. Often I can’t have chocolate – I’m allergic to an enzyme that is in milk chocolate and many dairy products (including ice cream). So drinking my chocolate is truly bliss.

The folks at Adagio do a great job blending. I run through this one often, and it tastes the same each batch – the perfect harmony of cherry, chocolate and cream.

Just don’t seep longer than four minutes, unless you enjoy bitter-ish tea…

I may have oversteeped my first bit. There’s enough in my little packet for a rerun. I’ll lighten it up.

As today is my 6-year wedding anniversary, I decided to start the day with cake – liquidified, calorie-free cake, that is.

No rating as this is one of my own blends from Adagio.

I love how you can taste the chocolate, the cherry and the cream all at once, and yet individually in each sip (or gulp, in my case). The folks at Adagio really blended this one up nice for me.

Want to sample any of my signature blends? Head over to my online tea shop: http://keenteathyme.teatra.de/ and purchase the Pick-Your-Own Adagio signature blend collection. You pick the six teas you’d like to try, and can also pick some sample teas of my own.

Best wishes on your anniversary! May there be many happy years! Hubby and I are coming up on the 26th anniversary of the day we met. We married just 7 months after, but it took! :)

KeenTeaThyme

Thank you! My husband and I are college sweethearts, been together for over 10 years. We had a four-year long engagement, because we were saving up for a destination wedding. (I’m not big on frou-frou things.)

Congrats belong to you as well – 26 years! YAY! :) Here’s to 26 more… :)

Indigobloom

Happy Anniversary!! let there be cake! mmmm

I really do enjoy this blend. No rating as it’s my own, but I loved how well Adagio blends it. Cherry, chocolate and creamy vanilla are a perfect treat as I get cracking on my “super exciting” job. ;)

Bliss. Caffeine. Both needed this morning. Got a late start, running late, then traffic. Now I am finally calming down…only to have to gear up for work. Grr! At least it’s Friday and I’ve got a happy hour party tonight. :)
