I tried the bagged version of this, and it is just as good as it sounds. I really like the blend of flavors here. The nutmeg and clove are most predominate, which is wonderful for me because I love those flavors, and like them to dominate my chai spice blends. I tried it without milk or sugar and it was quite good, but I bet it would be even better with some milk and sweetener.
Flavors: Cloves, Nutmeg
This tea really reminded me of shampoo or soap or something. It must be something about the lotus taste, which is more floral than chamomile, that caused the association for me. People who like light, floral teas might want to give it a try, but I think I prefer straight chamomile.
Flavors: Flowers, Soap
I bought this tea for the first time two years ago. It was Christmas time, then. This tea goes very well with a nice slice of Christmas fruit cake. I bought another box this year because it’s just so good!
Flavors: Chocolate, Mint
I found this tea to be OK. It’s somewhat weak, and the chocolate flavor (which tastes more like cocoa powder than chocolate) dominates over the orange. A little bit of Xylitol helped bring out the flavor somewhat, but I still don’t love it. It might be better double-bagged or steeped longer, but I don’t know that I feel it’s worth buying more to try that.
Flavors: Cocoa, Orange
I have a bit of an upset stomach today, so I decided it was a good day for a ginger tea. I’ve had one other lemon ginger tea, by Celestial Seasonings, and I think I actually like that one better. This is a bit more tart, and the lemon flavor isn’t as strong. It’s a good tea, but I prefer the sweetness of Celestial Seasoning’s version, especially for an upset stomach. I think it might be the hibiscus that detracts from the blend for me. I do like hibiscus in some teas, but I’m rather picky about it, and I don’t think I like it here.
Flavors: Ginger, Hibiscus, Lemon, Tart
I really liked this. It doesn’t taste all that much like black forest cake, but I liked the way the cocoa balanced the black tea, and the hint of cherry added just the right complexity for me. It’s definitely a rich, dark chocolate flavor, and not very sweet, but it wasn’t at all bitter either, and it tasted like an indulgence to me. I’ll be getting more of this in the future!
Flavors: Cherry, Dark Chocolate
I really enjoyed this. It reminds me of the spiced apple cider that my in-laws make at Christmastime. I don’t really taste the chamomile much, but the cinnamon and apple taste very good, and are complemented by just enough tartness from the hibiscus. I will definitely be buying more of this
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Hibiscus, Sweet
This is an interesting honeybush. It tastes like wood with a hint of hay. It’s a little different than what I’ve been getting from Adagio, and I’m trying to decide if I like it or not. I think it’ll take another cup to make up my mind. However, I didn’t taste the vanilla at all and it definitely loses points for that. If you’re marketing it as a flavored tea, I should be able to taste that flavor.
Flavors: Hay, Wood
Guess what? The wrapper for this teabag is almost the same color of read as the EB wrapper, so I accidentally made it my 2nd cup. Oh well…I drank it anyway, & if I’d added some stevia it would be almost like a koolaid kind of thing. It wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be, & would probably be tasty over ice.
Am I gonna run out & buy some?
No, most likely not. But at least I don’t hate it, right?
Tony & I went to one of our old haunts for breakfast, a place we used to visit pretty much every weekend, but I’ve just been cooking breakfast for quite some time now, because I’d much rather eat my own cooking any day. Regardless, there was nothing in the frig, so out to breakfast we went. This was my first cuppa there, and as far as bagged teas go, it’s better than most EBs, in my opinion, if for no other reason than the bags are not made of that phony ‘silk’.
Usually I don’t add milk to a tea unless it’s a very strong or astringent black tea, or I’ve given up on it otherwise. And I really wanted to enjoy this tea for what it is, but something just wasn’t doing it for me. Most likely I’m used to loose leaf and large infuser sachets, and the leaf bits in a smaller bag just don’t have the same profile. I still have quite a bit, and there seems to be a lot of high praise for it, not to mention it is one of the few I have that do the job of waking me up in the morning. So, I finally decided to make this breakfast tea breakfast style, with almond milk and sugar, and it really is much better. The softer flavors of lavender and bergamot are eased out much more gently, and the whole thing is silky smooth. Here’s to a productive morning!
