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…
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.

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.
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. :)
I really like how this one turned out! I’m completely biased here, folks, as I am the creator. But I blended this for the first time at home with samples, and then decided to try it here.
I’m not a huge lapsang souchong fan, but the smoky tone works well with the vanilla and cream flavors. The original percentage was 30 percent lapsang souchong to 20 black and 50 vanilla oolong, but I think even 20 percent lapsang souchong would work.
The lapsang souchong is smoky just like a campfire. And the vanilla cream combo tastes like a marshmallow. I’m pretty pleased. :)
P.S. Careful with brewing. I’m not normally too picky about brewing times, but this one can’t go any longer than five mins without tasting bitter and horrid.
