I am so grateful for Indigo creating this wonderful tea. It’s one of the few I know I can rely on when I want something pure and simple. Very smooth, apple-y, and delicious.

Erin

is it tart?

Honey

No. The flavor is predominately green tea with undertones of apple, which tend to be “sweet hints” that weave in and out of my tastes. How’s that for a description of the tea? lol It’s just delicious.

Erin

sounds delicious!

A perfect score for this tea. The flavors are robust but very well balanced and delicious. I love the buttery smoothness with hints of coconut and vanilla so much that I will have to place another order soon (the $2 international fee be damned!). Sometimes I open my tin of this stuff just to take a sniff…or too…when it’s too late for me to take in caffeine. I’ve been told I may have a problem….

I love oolong, chocolate, and coconut, so this tea is naturally a blessing to me. It’s not very bold but more subtle- I mostly taste the chocolate with slight undertones of coconut and a very faint hint of rose. It is pretty light, even for my taste (I tend to like light flavors), but I think I’m going to try adding some of my coconut tea in to see if I can boost that flavor. I may even try to blend it with some strawberry and see what happens. I see great potential in this teas mixing ability, but it’s decent on its own too.

What a nice, fruity tea. The liquor is this beautiful reddish-orange color. I find that the flavors are nicely balanced, although I am not getting that vanilla in the finish but instead a sweet orange flavor. My biggest problem with this tea is that it’s kind of sour, in a citric way. I wonder if I steeped it too long? It took me a while to remove the leaves since I was so amazed by my cat loving raisins. Had her for over 7 years and I’m just finding this out now! She loves to chase them as I toss them across the room. That was a digression but it’s just as interesting as this tea so thanks for your patience!

EEK raisins are poisonous to cats…luckily she only had 3!

Love the strawberry chocolate taste. There is a hint of rosiness to it – subtle and very nice. Whenever I think about this tea my head starts singing “love potion #9” :)

drank A Chestnut Chai by Adagio Teas

Wait a minute- a chai that’s supposedly nutty, chocolatey, and vanilla-ee? It certainly sounds great, and the loose leaf tea smells wonderful. I had to wait for a sneeze attack to subside before tasting this one – darn allergies!

This tea is neither tasty nor chocolatey. Maybe that’s some vanilla in there, but it just tastes watered down and blegh. I even added extra tea because it’s a personal habit. It has a weird chesnutty taste and my mouth is a little “spiced” afterward, but it is overall not very good. I will continue to give all the Adagio teas I’ve bought a fifth or sixth chance in hopes that they redeem themselves, but at this point I swear the reviews on their website are fake or planted or something. None of them have tasted like much of anything.

I’m happy that I only had a sample of this tea – I will definitely not be seeking another cup. It smelled interesting but the smell of the liquor was very unappealing. The taste of the tea was off-balance and weird, to say the least. Somehow I believe that this is what a monkey’s a** would taste like. Boooooo.

Faith

I fully agree, tried this tea twice, but to no avail.

Erin

Ha! I dislike this one too.

Bio

I’ve been drinking loose leaf teas for about 4 years and really enjoy the sense of contentment it brings to my busy life. I suppose tea is an experience you inherently have to slow down and enjoy, as it quiets the mind and allows you to hear more readily. I am also interested in Buddhism, yoga, meditation, and psychotherapy.

Here are some of my favorite teas:

Organic Silver Needle White Tea (Teavivre)
Bailin Gongfu Black Tea (Teavivre)
Buttered Rum (DavidsTea)
Gyrokuro/Gyrokuro Genmaicha (Teavana)
Apple Green Tea (Indigo Tea Company)
Strawberry Festival (Indigo Tea Company)
Mom’s Apple Pie (David’s Tea)
Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls/Rooibos Tropica Blend (Teavana)
