Just picked this one up. . . .and I’m so happy I did. I’m a bit of a blackberry nut as of late and this one took care of my blackberry cravings. Soo good. All of the flavors mingle in such a happy way. This one is fantastic hot or cold (I tried both today) Will always be in my tea cupboard. . . Love it!

KeenTeaThyme

You are a sweetheart! I’m glad you liked it. ;) Saw some of your awesome blends and I’ve got to try them – any tea that makes Ash prevail rocks! :)

Backlogging-

YUMMMMMMMMMM!!! This one is great. A fantastic morning tea. It has the great mix of being a bold tea with a touch of sweet.

And I apologize if anybody is offended by the name of the tea. It is an Adagio Custom Blend that I ended up stumbling upon. . . The name alone pretty much sold me. . . .b/c on the day I placed the order I was been called the crazy tea lady. :) Which, after thinking about it, yeah, I am kind of addicted.

LiberTEAS

I love the name!

Nichole

haha right!?!

LiberTEAS

Yes… it is a tea that I would buy just for the name too…

Nichole

PM me if you want a sample. Its really good!

Ending my work day with this gem so I can do one more power kick through my work and then toddle off to non-work-related activities. :)

JoeCool (Nichole) – thanks so much for this one!

Funny thing is…this is one of MY CUSTOM BLENDS and I had not purchased/sampled it yet! LOL

I’m not going to rate it because it’s mine but I may mention it within the actual review post…just for kicks

Dry this smells lovely…sweet and creamy and orange and nutty…prior to infusing…after infusing…it’s more sweet to the nose than anything.

The taste is sweet and nutty with hints of orange. I can taste a little apple in the aftertaste, too.

This is INCREDIBLY smooth. What a surprise!

I would say somewhere between a 80-85 ish if I were to give it an official rating…

TeaEqualsBliss

As it cools I can smell a little bit of the cinnamon but not much. Overall the aroma is delightful! :P

Had to begin with a little extra caffeine today…

I love, love, love this tea – but am slightly biased as its creator. :) The smoky flavor is subtle, just like the taste from a campfire after roasting a marshmallow. I always liked to burn my marshmallows to a crisp so that the inside was extra gooey; this tea captures that childhood memory perfectly.

2nd infusion: the blueberry and citrus notes have stayed for round two. Delish! Love the pink color of the tea as well. This is one fabulous blend! :)

Thank you awesome Meghann M for sending me this sample. I am in LOVE! This combo of blueberry and lemongrass with a green rooibos base is delightful and refreshing. I love the medley of citrus and blueberry – kind of like blueberry lemonade. :) OOH, gotta try this one iced! This is a definite must for blueberry fans of any age. And it’s a great way to enjoy green rooibos. I must acquire a full bag from Adagio asap. Thanks again for sharing, Meghann! And awesome blending job! :)

KeenTeaThyme

P.S. Best of all, you can drink this one plain and still enjoy sweetness thanks to the natural sweet tones of blueberry. :)

Thanks KeenTeaThyme for some of this yummy blend! Very Good. Unique flavors in it, every sip you get a different taste. Sometimes smoky, sometimes spicy, sometimes orange-y. . . But all good!!

I can’t get enough of it. :)

I was a bit leery of this blend as it contained lapsang tea, which always throws me with its smoky scent and flavor, but in this blend,it really makes a difference.

The tea smells incredibly smoky and sweetly creamy upon brewing. I was a little hesitant to take a sip as the smoke was in the lead for the aroma. There is a bit of smoky flavor in the taste, but the vanilla and cream really tone it down and make it very enjoyable. I can almost taste that golden brown marshmallow (I learned how to be patient with my marsmallows so they wouldn’t end up charred around the time I graduated college). This is a delicous tea and I would recommend to anyone who is a bit hesitant to try smoky teas. This would be a great introductory tea to enjoy.

Thanks KeenTeaTime for the sample!

Great Job Blending!! ;0)

Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I love blueberry teas.

I opened my mailbox today and found a package from MeghannM! Yay!! As soon as I opened the package, my husband and I set down to smell each tea. As soon as he took a whiff of this one, he just had to have it. The aroma is very blueberry with a little citrus hint from the lemongrass. I brewed up a nice large pot for us to share and we are enjoying it now. Until now, I’ve only had red rooibos and I definitely prefer this green rooibos. There is no woody/weirdly minty aftertaste to be found! This is a great herbal!

The blueberry is noticeable but not overly sweet. The lemongrass is nice in this blend and not overpowering. It is almost like eating blueberries with a little squeeze of fresh lemon. I am really enjoying this while trying to wind down from the day. I think this may have to go on my shopping list!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Yay! I am happy to hear it was enjoyable.

Very much so! In fact, my husband went to bed early and I’m drinking the rest of his cup now!

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 ;)

With this fixed version I am in love! I am on my second cup of it; surprisingly it can be resteeped, just once, but hey, that’s better than nothing. I love the subtle smoky aftertaste. The original version was still decent but this one is off the charts, said the creator, modestly. :)

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Any chance you could spare a bit of this one to send me when you send my other package along? Thanks

KeenTeaThyme

Of course! I have plenty. :) Anything else you’d like to try?

So I made this tea for my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day. Yes cheesy. I used to hate V-day until he came into my life.

Anyhow, pretty good! I made this so it was mostly blueberry; however, when I took a whiff, I could smell the typical Adagio underneath it all. I guess the Ceylon? And the cream and vanilla was there nicely. It isn’t an overwhelming tea blend, but we enjoyed it a lot during dinner :)

I like how it isn’t tart, and I love how there are big bits of blueberry in there. It is a light and comfy tea. I’m not rating it until I’ve tried it a few times though.

Cofftea

You created the blend or you served it? Either way, very cool idea:)

Charisma

I created it on adagio then served it :)

Nichole

This one sounds great. Might have to pick it up!

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.

I fixed this tea on Adagio by using just 10 percent of the smoky Lapsang Souchong and the remaining 90 percent split between vanilla oolong and cream black tea. I LOVE how this one turned out! It’s bold, strong, and in-your-face vanilla/cream with a smoky aftertaste, just like a toasted marshmallow.
The original blend was good, but I’m not a big fan of Lapsang Souchong apparently. A subtle smoky flavor – like a marshmallow fresh from the fire – works perfectly. YUM!
One thing – don’t drink before bed or you’ll be wired. :)

Yes, I realize it’s been less than 20 mins since I logged a tea. No, sadly, I am not backlogging. My tea consumption is why I am known as the Tea Lady at work.

This tea says, “Valentine’s Day,” as well: creamy chocolate and cherry. Yum!

Uniquity

It sounds amazing…

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!

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.
