This was a free sample with an order from Keen Tea Thyme — check out her teatra.de, by the by, there are a lot of yummy things there.
I generally don’t notice a very strong fruit flavor in Adagio’s teas, and this blend is no exception. Still, it’s a pleasant combination of vanilla and peach, and with a little something to sweeten it, it makes for a great dessert tea. I can’t see myself going out of my way to get more, but I’m glad I got to try it!
Sweet and fruity but a tad bitter but it a good way for a nice contrast! STRONG! Just what I was looking for this morning!
I really really didn’t need to buy more tea but when I saw some of the deals that Keenteathyme had I had to get some samples… This tea smells of apples when you open it up. I brewed it up and waited till I had finished my lunch before taking a sip and wow my first sip was straight creaminess. Yum yum yum. The second flavor I get is definitely a bit of apple and it is sweet. The last notes for me are just hints of spiciness that linger on the tongue. I typically don’t like my chai to be too spicy so this one fits the bill perfectly and it is so nice to drink in the fall! I am very impressed!
Recently got a sample of this tea, and one of my favorite parts was that the dry leaf has a very nice roasted vanilla aroma to it.
As for the actual tea, I slightly detected marshmallow, but not really the smokiness. (Many seem to have detected it the other way around!).
I wouldn’t actually go for this to have a ‘Toasted Marshmallow’ tea, but instead a really smooth, enjoyable black tea. The Oolong definitely comes through and adds a well-rounded, nice aftertaste.
It didn’t put up well to a resteep, however (though… I may not have brewed it long enough).
I’m glad to have been able to try this, it was very enjoyable!
No rating as this is my own.
This is a great tasting chai with all the flavors you love about autumn: apple, spice, caramel. You can almost taste the brisk air and cooler temperatures.
Was on the phone nearly all night last night and thought this was appropriate for the morning after that! OMG! LOL I do like this tea very much and it will be missed!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.
This is tasty. I can hardly taste the black tea … which is as Jennifer wanted it (according to her own tasting note) and in my opinion that’s a plus because I’m not particularly fond of the black tea base used in Adagio’s flavored black teas. The white tea is a fresh, crisp taste, and the blueberry dominates. One thing that I did notice here, though, is that the blueberry does taste a little artificial. I don’t notice that as much with the blueberry white tea or the blueberry black tea that I’ve tried. Maybe it’s the hint of hibiscus from the berry blues that does it? I don’t know. It doesn’t taste bad, but, it doesn’t taste as authentic as the blueberry white or blueberry black does.
Overall, though, it is very enjoyable. Sweet berry flavor and mild tea background. Very mellow and pleasant.
I won’t rate this one, as it’s my own blend from Adagio. But I needed something to rid my mouth of that horrid Cinnamon Raisin Toast one. I always have plenty of this one on hand so my Vampire Lemonade righted all that was wrong (almost).
Hey, if you have a signature blend from Adagio and want to swap with me, lemme know!
Yom yom yom
I’m enjoying a cuppa this to wind down today. No number rating as it is my blend. I do love this one iced; it’s a great medley of mint and blackberry. Yum! Refreshing!
I won’t rate this as Peachy Keen is one of my blends…but I do really enjoy the harmony of peach and vanilla goodness in this one. I taste an equal amount of both, so much that it reminds me of peach cobbler with ice cream, or peachy ice cream (which I can’t eat anyway). Wonderful!
Played around with time since I had no idea where to start.
The first time I steeped the tea for 3 minutes 30 seconds. You could really smell the cream. The black tea leaf flavor was over powering. I could hardley taste the the cream, or vanilla. It was toasty yet had a touch of caramel. The after taste was on the bitter side but thats where the cream finally came out. Vanilla still didn’t show up.
I steeped the leaves again for the same temp but for 5 minutes and I have to say the second steeping (same leaves) is fantastic. This is where all the flavors come out without that bitter after taste. Its a sweet caramel with that warm vanilla and the cream makes it seem like I put a dash of milk in there.
Strange tea, this.
It has a spicy note to it that reminds me of an herb I cook with, but I can’t put my finger on it. Oregano, maybe? But not quite as powerful as oregano.
Overall, it tastes like a light black tea. But it has an interesting vegetal quality that’s probably coming from what I think is the green tea or it could be
There’s no added fruit flavorings that I can tell. No astringency. Only a slight bitterness from oversteeping since I left the leaves in my cup as I drank it.
I haven’t tasted anything quite like it before. Maybe it’s a custom blend?
If anyone knows what this tea is or where to find it, please message me! It’s driving me crazy that I can’t find any information on it! Also, if you’d like a sample to try for yourself, please message me! I have a limited supply, but I’d appreciate the help identifying it.
It’s not the best tea I’ve ever had, but it’s far from the worst. So, it’s getting a middle of the road rating from me.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!
A very tasty blend. Blueberries, vanilla and chocolate chips make a very enticing aroma and flavor. The black tea base is a little harsh when the tea is very hot, but as it cools slighlty I find that the black tea is no longer harsh, and as an added bonus, the flavors have developed very well.
The blueberry is the strongest note, with vanilla tones that weave their way in and out throughout the sip. The chocolate adds a very nice touch. A very nice blend, thank you again TeaEqualsBliss!
Tastes like a cookie!
Good morning Steepsterites.
Today, I’ve decided, is decupboarding day. Let’s see how many I can get through.
This one is one I got from some kind soul once, the identity of whom I’ve forgotten because I’ve got so much gift tea from so many people lying around and no reliable system for remembering where it all came from. I’ll devise something of the sort, but there are a few things that need to come in order first. It’s all part of getting the tea corner sorted out. The tins are still all kicking around on the table in an only slightly organised pile. Not for lack of trying, though, but by the time we finally picked some shelves for that corner, they were not in stock. (We also bought a shelf for the bathroom but can’t put it up yet because we got a middle bracket instead of two end brackets. Typical!) After the shelves have been sorted out, I have some ideas for a gift remembering system which may or may not work out.
Anyway, the first time I had this it seems I wasn’t really all that impressed. That fits badly with how I ended up drinking quite a lot of it in a short time until the sample was nearly gone. Having waited a good while, I’m polishing it off now. I don’t know, I think it was something to do with how perhaps the flavour itself wasn’t really what I was looking for, but I liked the idea of it so much that I just kept trying.
It’s a pretty good tea to drink, really, just not one that makes you sit down and want to try and pick the flavour profile apart. It works best as a whole without too much thought activity. Probably not super-suitable for a first tea of the day tea either, but I can’t really say as I care. :) I imagine it’s probably a pretty good tea to have while reading a good book. I’ll go test that theory out I think.
(I love wednesdays. Have I mentioned lately that I love wednesdays? I feel for all you poor souls out there that have to be at work today and I’m not jealous at all. Aaaaah wednesday. The Weekend Minor.)
Tarty but nice…smoother finish
Mmmm! Rat lunch with this tea – so perfect and delicious! I think I’ll be having rat lunch more often!
This is my breakfast tea of the day! It went perfectly with a scrambled egg topped with lavender goat cheese, a gala apple, and natural chocolate peanut butter. I’m almost out of this one though – I will be reordering especially for iced tea latte purposes!
I’m revisiting this one today and am finding it very smoky and slightly sweet as always! This is a great custom blend which is especially good iced. I’m definitely going to have to buy another pouch of this soon!
Finished the hazelnut creamer this morning. Really good cup of tea this morning to go with the cinnamon rolls.
I drank up the last bit of this tea. I was sad to see this one done. I’ll definitely be placing an order of this soon.
