I brewed this one in my TeasEtc travel mug—tasted the best in this mug. Still fabulous, as per the usual.
66 Tasting Notes
yum! As per the usual.
I really enjoy this tea! This is the first Chamomile I’ve ever liked in my life. Yes, I’m serious.
Though, like the other taster, I find that this tea doesn’t need any sweetener. (though, I wouldn’t have guessed about the stevia leaf in it…interesting!) I had this tea at a coffee shop a couple blocks from my house, and was expecting something much less impressive than this. This tea was placed in a sachet at the coffee shop, something that I took home and drank all day afterwards. I figured the sachet would affect the taste in some way, because the chamomile leaves were pretty tightly packed, but not so.
I am SO purchasing this in bulk for myself.
oh yum! I brewed this differently (being home from college, was able to be extra attentive to the brewing) and it turned out even BETTER than before. I love this tea. It’s one of my favorites.
I’ve been drinking this all week—this makes my favorite iced tea ever. I’m not particularly fond of it hot, but when it’s iced—yum!
I usually just add a little liquid stevia to sweeten it up a bit (not enough to be called ‘sweet tea’, but just enough to take the edge off) and it’s fabulous. Yum.
For the record, I made this as sun tea, so I let it steep in the sun for probably five hours or so. Very delicious.
Oh yum. It’s been such a long time since I’ve had a decent pot of rooibos—and this hits the spot.
This is one of the few teas that I feel like I’d love to re-purchase when I run out. We’ll see though, because rooibos is a favorite of mine, so chances are I’ll try a bunch of different kinds of rooibos from different companies, too. We’ll see.
In any case, this particular tea makes a fabulous cup! :)
I think that because this tea is from Adagio, I thought it was going to be the best thing ever. It’s good—but I’m a tad underwhelmed. Luckily, there are very few chais I dislike—and this chai isn’t on my ‘DO NOT DRINK EVER’ list. It smells much better than it tastes, frankly, and I felt that the spices were a bit overpowering for me. (Maybe they did not combine well—I was very careful not to over-steep.) Still tasty, like most chais. Pretty average, coming from Adagio.
All in all, I don’t know if I’ll purchase this one again. But it’s not that bad, really.
I too, am not a big fan of fruity herbal teas, but this one is probably the best one I’ve had in a long time. I added a little bit of sugar to mine, which brought out the fruit flavor nicely.
On another note, I realize that most tea-bags are designed for environmental and cost factors, but Novus has a decent design to their pyramid bags. I feel like their pyramid tea bags allow for better expansion of the tea leaves than most brands. So, kudos on that one.
Not bad—certainly not the best Oolong I’ve ever had, but certainly not the worst.
For me, there was no sense of bitterness and even with a touch of sweetener it retained its identity.
Travels decently and in short is not a bad tea bag Oolong.
I think subconsciously I’m trying to get rid of this tea by drinking it as much as possible, and then never buying it again.
Though, I learned today that it is possible to make a good tea out of this. It’s actually really good.
I let it steep much less today and then I added a hint of vanilla almond milk and a little unrefined sugar.
This is actually tasting like what I remember chai lattes tasting like when I was non-vegan, just minus the foam, of course. I think next time I add the almond milk, it’ll be to a better quality chai…
it’s still a decent cup, though!
Pretty good stuff!
The apricot I feel is hidden behind the flavors of the leaves, but it gives it a nice ‘adult’ taste to the tea. I put a very small spoonful of raw sugar in to enhance the apricot flavor, but I feel that if I didn’t have sugar it would still be a pretty good cup of tea.
Much better than the tea bagged junk I’ve been drinking regularly….
I steeped it much too long this time—very bitter, I had to add a lot of sugar to sweeten it. What a shame—in any case, I don’t think I’ll be purchasing this one again.
It’s not very good—too many spices, not enough choco.
meh. I’ve been needing a little pain relief and it did it’s job, but it’s not the best tasting thing in the world…

My least favorite Chamomile tea I’ve tasted.
That being said, I don’t like Chamomile very much, so maybe it’s just me.
This was my first tea love as a maturing adult. I’d sweeten it to kingdom come until it tasted like Hawaiian Punch. Later on, I learned to tone down the sweetener, and it’s not half bad.
Not my favorite chai, but still good as a back-up. I put a couple drops of sweet leaf vanilla creme stevia in to sweeten it a tad.
