I’m not usually a peach tea fan unless it is iced but this tea surprised me. The flavors of the oolong go well with the white peony while the peach stays on the down low, offering its own subtle hints. This tea was included with my last purchase from Adagio since they were running a special. It probably isn’t something I’ll buy again, but it was fun to try something I may not have otherwise. 1.5 tsps in 12oz cup @ 180º for 6 minutes.
46 Tasting Notes
This is my first white tea and I really liked the flavors. The smoothness of the tea and the flavors reminded me mostly of green tea without the grassy flavors. Definitely a good anytime tea. 1.5 tsps in 12oz cup, 180º for 7 minutes.
As a big fan of Chai teas and the flavors of coconut and lemongrass, I’m very much enjoying this tea. This will be one that I buy again and again and this tea lives up to the hype from its reviewers on Adagio’s website. I’m drinking this one plain and the flavors all make a great stance for themselves. I used 1.5 tsps in a 12oz cup @ 208º for 5 minutes. I think I’ll stick with this amount for now and go up to 2 tsps if I’m feeling particularly “daring.” I highly recommend this tea.
I have been very excited to try this tea after a good recommendation from a friend and I’m glad he pointed this one out. Ever since my first cup of Earl Grey I’ve been trying to find one that I really enjoy and I think this one might be it. The cup I’m drinking now has a great bergamot aroma and the taste matches the aroma quite well. The next time I brew this tea I will use less leaf as this time around it is a little on the bitter side because I used too much tea. I used 1.5 tsps in a 12oz. cup @ 208º for 5 minutes. Next time I’ll drop this down to just 1 tsp and see how that does for me. I’ve been finding that 1 tsp for Adagio’s black teas is enough even in a 12oz cup. Perhaps that is the secret to me finding a good balance with these teas.
First impression of the tea is that I am very happy with it and this will be something that I buy again. I really like how the flavors blend to create both a taste and aroma of cream. I’ve used chamomile tea to help calm me down before bed in the past, but this tea has a nice jolt to it with the rooibos and peppermint included here. Looking forward to experimenting with this tea. Initial steep was 1.5 tsp, 180º for 7 minutes.
Delicious floral flavor of the Jasmine comes through with this tea. It truly does appeal to the senses watching as the leaves unfurl from their balled state as the tea steeps and smelling the jasmine scent come out from the cup. I really enjoy this tea and look forward to purchasing more when I’m through with my sampler. I used 1.5tsps in a 12oz cup and plan to re-steep as many times as possible. Being that this tea isn’t the cheapest Jasmine I’ve had I want to get as much out of it as I can.
Great green flavor without being too overwhelming. Fairly forgiving green tea but be careful not to oversteep. 3 minutes is plenty of time for the flavors to develop in the cup.
4 tsp. @ 208º in 20 oz. teapot for 7 minutes. This tea offers a mild pick me up and, although I don’t know if it really does this or if I think it does because the package says so, I do feel more focused when I drink this tea. This is a good thing, because this tea is my second pot of fuel for my paper writing today.
4 tsp. @ 208º for 7 minutes in 20oz. teapot. This is my favorite tea from Teavana. It is sweet, complex, nicely spiced, and very soothing. Today it is fueling my paper writing.
Stepped down to 1 tsp @ 205º for exactly 5 minutes. I’ve been oversteeping this one lately and using too much tea. This time around the tea is really showing its flavors well and the bitterness I’ve been experiencing is nearly absent.
Took it up to 2 tsps @ 180º for 8 minutes and got a much spicier, tastier tea. Previously the tea had been much weaker than I like and this combination really worked well for me this morning
1.5 tsps. @ 208º for 5 minutes. Seems I have oversteeped this time around. Getting a lot of bitterness from the leaves that’s hiding the sweetness of the mango. Perhaps, though, this tea is just a bit stronger than I expected.
1.5 tsp @ 180º for 8 minutes. Perfect spices and flavors.
Rich flavors, big body, big aroma. Definitely recommend this one.
2 tsp, 180º for 7 minutes. Rich spices made even richer with the addition of vanilla. The Rooibos leaf really shines in this tea.
Steeped 2 tsp @ 208º for 5 minutes. Wonderful flavors with a mango aroma. Very well balanced black.
Steeped for just a few minutes to avoid bitter flavors. Sweetened with Sugar in the Raw.
Well-balanced herbal tea. Great flavors and, like others, I do notice a difference in my ability to focus after drinking this tea. Sure, it may be psychosomatic, but who cares?
Not too grassy, not too sweet. Aroma matches the flavor well.
One of my favorite herbal teas from Yogi Tea. Great amount of sweetness while still maintaining the body of a rooibos.
An excellent mate/ chai. Goes exceptionally well with turbinado sugar (Sugar in the Raw). Lightly caffeinated to offer a pick-me-up in the afternoon or early evening hours. The sweetness is well balanced by the spices in this tea. Highly recommended.
Excellent tea for fall/ winter weather.
