Adagio recommendations

Hey Y’all,

I’ve never made an Adagio order, but been interested in sampling their stuff, particularly their custom blends. I figure If I’m gonna order, I’ll just hit the $49 mark so I don’t pay for shipping; what are your recommendations?

I actually just placed a $50 order today. Since I’m fairly new to them I bought several of the sampler packs so I could try out a wide variety.

So far I’m a fan of the Honeybush Apricot and Taurus.

Oh, and heres a $5 coupon code, 7127147100 it should be good through tomorrow morning some time.

My Adagio favorites are the caramel and the strawberry decaf.

That strawberry decaf is wonderful. It’s one of my favorites.

They’ve also got some deal where you hit certain price points and get tins of some mother’s day flower related teas right now.

I like the Tardis blend. Also there’s some tins with these Chicago themed teas and the Jazzmint one is really good.

I really like their white peach, tiger eye and vanilla oolong straight teas. For blends I like their Scorpio, though many of the fan blends I’ve gotten I haven’t been too thrilled about. They just weren’t my taste.
I’d say check out their new fandom sampler tin sets. It’s a good way to check out a bunch of different blends without having to buy a bunch of the larger bags and end up possibly not liking it.

Ooooh. I love those fandom sampler tin sets! But I’m probably be buying it for the tins and not the tea.

Except I wouldn’t be buying it with $30 shipping fees. >:|

Cavocorax, if I end up buying it will probably be the Doctor Who set or the Teen Wolf set. I’ll let you know if I have the tins extra. I’d probably only keep a couple for myself, so I could use them in my lunch for taking tea bags in. I could always ship the ones I don’t want along to you.

If you really like the tins, you could get them from speciality bottle. I think the Adagio ones are the same as the smaller hinged ones there. Though they wouldn’t have the art, which is half the fun. Lol!

JennyFur- thanks for the offer. If you get the Doctor Who ones, I’d be interested!

I have only tried a few of them but am not a fan of the black tea base in the fan blends – I found them bitter and largely undrinkable. I have heard they have great unflavoured teas though. If only they would use a better base for the blends. Alas their Canadian shipping is so ridiculous I will never order from them. High shipping and unreliable tea make a dangerous combo, heh.

My favorite is their Earl Grey Moonlight. Sooooo creamy and delicious. Their Vanilla Green is a favorite of mine. I got a sample of it on a whim because I couldn’t imagine how those two flavors would mix, but I REALLY enjoy the result! Sleeping dragon is another good one. I actually have a bunch of oolongs coming my way from them!

Yes, that’s still my favourite.

Their herbal blend Foxtrot (whenever I feel physically crappy it helps make me feel a lot better; I tend to think of it as a medicinal thing more than a luscious treat thing) and, if they still have it, the custom blend (hobbit themed) Elevenses, which has black tea, oolong, blueberry, and cream IIRC.

I always found Adagio better at herbals and non-black teas than black ones, personally.

I’m an Adagio gal, so I’ve got a whole list: Fujian baroque, sweet potato pie, cream, chestnut, golden monkey, yunnan jig, genmaicha, almond oolong, vanilla oolong, ahhh… And probably fifty others I’m forgetting. Their fandom blends are fantastic as well.
