I love this tea. It is strong and flavorful to give you a real lift in the morning. Lots of smoky wood tastes and a hearty bite to it. Perfect for cold winter mornings. I have been thinking about marinating some salmon with the tea & grilling because the flavors would marry perfectly. All in all a delicious black tea.

Tastes more like perfume & butter than the strong, rich flavor I expect and crave with chai style tea. Not the best in Adagio’s chai selections.

Tasty middle of the road Oolong. It’s good to prep the leaves and open them up by pouring some hot water and discarding before steeping.

drank Green Chai by Adagio Teas

I had this straight up with no milk & sugar. It’s not bad for a green or a chai, but in comparison to the greens & chais I like, it’s not the greatest. I’m going to try again with milk & sugar. Right now I’m on the fence.

I’m not a fan of green teas, but this one was a delicious tea that grew on me. I made a green tea ice cream with this tea and the flavor was amazing after letting stay in the freezer overnight, the rice really complemented the creaminess. I need to order some more Masala Chai from Samovar, I’m certain I’ll pick this one up again.

So earthy and rich. Almost malty. My first taste of a Pu-erh tea. Definitely recommend if you like darker, robust teas.

Deliciously sweet & rich tea. A great Oolong at that, not bad in price either. I recommend blending with the Ginger Peach Apricot as well in equal amounts, they pair wonderfully.

Mischievous Tea Fey

That sounds like a great combination

I drink this with the Sweet Oolong Revolution and add extra ginger, peaches & apricots. I also have been blending Samovar’s Orange Ginger herbal infusion & Lychee Black tea to this to add even more flavors that blend well.

I liked it, very chocolaty aroma, not as much flavor came through as the aroma. Still a good strong morning tea. I think this would pair well with an Assam tea.
