This is the only holiday tea from Adagio that I really enjoyed. It’s smooth and slightly sweet with just the right amount of nuttiness.

Surprisingly, this one wasn’t an immediate love for me. I think my expectations were a little high after reading the reviews of others. However, this is definitely the best pumpkin tea I’ve tried and it is perfect for fall. I brewed an entire pot of it (about 32 oz) and finished it before the pot went cool. I don’t really taste the actual pumpkin like others have said, but the spices are right on. This tea definitely evokes memories of warm pumpkin pie. I’d buy this again.

I usually add a bit of sugar or stevia to my tea, but found that this one didn’t need it. However, this isn’t an overly sweet tea. There aren’t any sharp notes to it and it has a pleasant apple flavor reminiscent of Granny Smiths. I really like this one and I’d buy it again.

I like this as an iced tea in the morning for a little caffeine. I find that it definitely requires sweetener as the lemon and raspberry flavors are quite tart. I usually use a little stevia and that makes it nice and smooth.

Not my favorite tea in the world. It’s slightly sweet but overall rather boring.

My favorite of Teavana’s mates. Rich and chocolaty. Perfect in the morning with a little cream and sugar. Nice alternative to coffee.

This makes a good iced tea. Nice strawberry flavor with an earthy undertone. Refreshing.

One of my favorite black teas. Dark enough to please me but with enough added flavor to make me smile. I love the cinnamon/almond flavor because it’s not overpowering. I don’t detect rose in this at all though, which is a little disappointing and why I didn’t give it 100.

Not my favorite black tea. Far too mild for my tastes. Don’t really like the aftertaste either. Will not buy again.

I think I may be one of the few people who really love this tea. I add a little bit of sugar and it tastes just like one of my mom’s sugar cookies. I find it truly delightful and like to mix it with the honeybush vanilla as an iced tea.

Profile

Bio

I’m one of the rare Utah tea drinkers. I’ve amassed quite a collection of various teas, many which I obtained at the evil Teavana where I used to work. I’m working through them and branching out to other brands. My favorite teas are jasmine, oolong, rooibos and white. I also collect tea cups and pots.
