This tea smells absolutely delicious and fruity. It’s full of dried fruits and petals. I was excited to taste, and was expecting it to be delicious. While I did really like the mix of fruit flavors, this tea tastes like it has a sweetener added. I don’t like sweeteners in my tea AT ALL. The sweet ruined the experience, and I have no idea where it comes from. I don’t think that the fruits on their own could produce what tastes like pure sugar, and I drink loads of other teas with fruit pieces. I wish I could give this a higher score for smell and prettiness, but when I look at the faces on the rating scale, the one with its tongue stuck out is how I feel about the taste. No sweeteners in my tea!!!!
53 Tasting Notes
This company used to have an Etsy shop but they seem to have disappeared. This is a very pleasant fruit-flavored black tea. The pomegranate and lemon offer a nice balance to one another, and the tea is not overly tart. It’s a good, refreshing morning tea.
It’s very hard to do green tea in a bag. Green tea is so much less forgiving than black tea, breaking it up and putting it in a bag makes it so much harder to brew a good cup that isn’t bitter. On that note, I must give this product credit. This tea brewed with no hint of bitterness (using a cooler temperature, as one would do for other green teas). That said, this tea does have quite a strong lemongrass-lemon flavor, and that gives these tea bags some latitude. I tasted much more citrus than I did green tea. That’s not necessarily bad, if that’s what one wants. The main issue I see is that this tea is marketed as straight green tea, when it’s really a flavored product, first and foremost. As flavored green tea in a teabag goes, this is okay, but it’s not the best I’ve had.
These tea bags produce quite a good cup of tea. I generally go for loose leaf tea, but there are times when a bag is simply more convenient. This Earl Grey has a strong bergamot scent. The bergamot flavor is strong once brewed, but not overwhelming. It was easy to brew a cup that was smooth and not too bitter. I brewed for approximately two minutes, which is my usual for bagged black tea. The tea was fresh and flavorful. This is definitely a good choice for those in search of a bagged earl grey.
This is not a terrible cup of tea, but each bag is not nearly strong enough on its own to make a full cup. There needs to be more tea in the bag (and the bag needs to be bigger to give the larger amount of tea space to expand). In sum, a weak black tea. You’ll taste more spice than tea. Much better if brewed two bags at a time.
A very drinkable chai, with a nice amount of spice. This is wonderful for warming in the winter. There’s no particular spice note that’s predominate in this blend, just a good mix. Delightful with a splash of milk.
I’ve found this to be a very agreeable morning tea. The flavoring is not very strong (I’d actually prefer a bit more banana flavor), so one gets a good dose of black tea. It’s not at all a sweet blend, just a bit of banana.
This is a very serviceable flavored black tea in a bag. This has become my go-to bag when I need a quick cup of tea. The scent of this tea is utterly amazing- strong cinnamon, but not overwhelming. I could sniff the packet all day. Flavor is good for a bag. Most important to me is that the cinnamon flavor is present, but not so overwhelming that it is too sweet. All in all, a quality tea, great for when you need a bag.
Slurp. I’m not a tisane drinker by any means. I’m no great fan of rooibos. I like my real tea. Thus, I’d never tried honeybush, and I was pretty sure I never wanted to. Then I read all the great reviews about this, so I decided to give it a try. I’d like to have a caffeine-free option available. So, I brewed it up, and wow! It really does smell like a pina colada. It tastes like one too. I can’t really figure out what the base honeybush flavor is, but whatever it is, it was overshadowed by the pina colada-iness, which is just fine by me. Now, if this flavor could be added to a black tea, I’d be in total tea heaven.
This is an interesting tea- it smells mostly like cinnamon, but tastes mostly like licorice. That’s fine with me, I enjoy licorice teas. This one almost tastes a bit like rootbeer, but it’s not sweet at all. This isn’t a tea I would want to drink everyday, but it fills a niche.
Goodness gracious, I do love this. It tastes like apple pie and creamy ice cream, with added tea. It’s warm, comforting, sweet, and oh so delicious in the evening. It goes down so smoothly and deliciously. I think it’s time for me to brew another cup.
I generally enjoy minty, candy cane flavored black teas, and this one might just be my favorite of the bunch. There’s something about the flavor that’s just a bit different from other candy cane teas, and I’ve yet to figure out a way to adequately describe it. It’s not that it’s sweeter, it’s not that it’s mintier. This tea does have hunks of actual candy canes in it, so I suspect it’s something the candy canes themselves are imparting. Whatever it is, it makes this tea a favorite with me.
This tea was a bit like sensory overload for me. Generally that’s not a good thing with tea, but with this blend, somehow it was a good thing. I’ll start with the smell, which is amazing. Whenever I open this I get wafts of apple orchards on a fall day. The taste is also spectacular- not nearly as sweet or as flavored as one might initially expect based on the scent. Overall a very nice tea- light and fruity.
This tea has a perfectly acceptable flavor- it’s nothing spectacular, but if you’re looking for green tea in a bag that tastes okay, this will get the job done. I’m not really sure I understand the point of mixing in the white tea- I find that the flavor of the white tea is completely overpowered by the green, so this just tastes like green tea to me. That’s fine, and I like it well enough, but I don’t really get any flavor notes resembling white tea.
This is one of the few flavored black teas by Adagio that I just do not like at all. This tea has a strong, strong, strong vanilla flavor. It’s so strong that it tastes fake and sweet to me- all I can taste is vanilla, no tea. I have to classify this tea as undrinkable, because I simply cannot stand the fake vanilla flavor.
Decaffinated teas usually reflect that in their taste- it’s to this tea’s credit that it doesn’t taste quite as decaffinated as some others. Yes, I can still taste that it’s decaffinated, but not as much as most others. That said, this green tea has lotus scenting, and is pretty darn well done for a teabag. The lotus notes aren’t too strong, so I can still taste the green tea, as well as a soft lotus flavor. If Tazo made this in a full-throttle version I’d definitely buy it. In it’s current form, it’s drinkable, which is far more than I say about most decaf teas.
I love the idea of this tea, but it’s just too sweet for me. There’s LOTS of cinnamon in this tea, and cinnamon can take on a sort of sweet tinge, which it has in this blend. I desperately wanted to like it because it sounds so good, but it didn’t work for me.
Another tealuxe tea with a nuanced, but very evident flavor. This tea has a pleasant mango flavor without being too sweet. Very well done.
A very tasty tea- this is almost like a grown-up peach-flavored tea. It has a sophisticated peach flavoring that integrates very well with the black tea base. This is my favorite peach-flavored tea, and I regularly repurchase it.
This was an okay tea- definitely not my favorite. The flavor is okay, but a little too sweet for my tastes. I also found that the tea was just not as flavorful as some of the others from RoT- like Blackberry Sage.
I enjoyed this tea- it has a solid almond flavor, which is not at all sweet. For those who want a bit of sweetness in a nutty tea, try the chestnut. Here you’ll get a very dry almond flavor, that works at pretty much any time of day.
I found this tea to be okay- it tastes like what it says: spice with a hint of citrus, but I think Adagio make better spicy and fruity blends. I find the flavors of Adagio’s Oriental Spice to be much bolder than in this blend.
I love the idea of this tea, but the flavor is just not strong enough for me. There’s a good black to tea base to this tea, but the melon flavor gets lost very easily- I only get faint hints of flavor. I would like this tea so much better if the flavor was stronger.
A real winner, as far as I’m concerned. This tea has a very smooth, nutty flavor that brews up nicely and goes wonderfully with a splash of milk. This is a very drinkable tea, a sort of unusual flavor for a dessert tea, but very yummy.
