98 Tasting Notes

Nice slightly tart and slight sweet tea. Very bright and flavorful, first tasting of plum with the strength of cinnamon building with each sip. Lovely plummy aroma.

Pleasantly surprised by this very interesting tea blend. Works well with or without honey; smells pepperminty in loose leaf form, but more subtle and nuanced when brewed with hints of lemon, and equal parts peppermint and sage, when brewed.

These flavors don’t clash as I had been expecting: The initial flavor was peppermint, but secondary flavor of sage that slowly builds up. Very pleasing light sage aroma, too, almost like an herb garden.

At first I was wary of this tea: It smelled like wet chocolate, which is not exactly an appealing aroma, and previous chocolate teas I had tried made me cautious that this, too, would taste dusty. However, it turned out to be wonderful! Lovely milk chocolate flavor which was accentuated by milk (I used half-and-half) and sugar. Very smooth and well-rounded.

drank Cherry by Adagio Teas
98 tasting notes

Good solid tea with slightly tart cherry hints. I steeped mine for five minutes (two minutes longer than Adagio’s suggestion) and added milk and sugar and was pleased with the outcome. Gentle but definitely present cherry aroma that was both a bit sweet and tart, which was a nice surprise.

Good solid tea with berry hints. I steeped mine for five minutes (two minutes longer than Adagio’s suggestion) and added milk and sugar and was pleased with the outcome. Gentle but definitely present blackberry aroma and taste was simply very nice.

drank Chestnut by Adagio Teas
98 tasting notes

Surprisingly excellent tea, with nutty (and almost chocolate) overtones, lovely rounded flavor that’s slightly sweet and therefore doesn’t require much (if any) additional sugar. Holds up beautifully with milk, which brings out more subtle chestnut notes. I steeped mine for five minutes (two minutes longer than Adagio’s suggestion).

An excellent holiday tea, and a new favorite.

Fair to middling supermarket-acquired tea; good tea bag, but the tea itself looked a bit broken (not whole tea leaves). Held up with milk and sugar, but didn’t have an especially pronounced, strong tea flavor or aroma. Would brew with a longer steep time in the future.

Bland, absolutely no tea taste of any kind, let alone black tea. Adding milk and sugar made the beverage taste of diluted hot milk. Relatively flavorless.

As far as mint teas go: meh. Did have some peppermint aroma and taste that tempered by spearmint, but I couldn’t taste much of the spearmint.

Love this tea! Sweet, strawberry (and slightly chocolate) aroma; excellent bright yet slightly sweet strawberry flavor very well enhanced with milk or half-and-half, and sugar. One of my very favorites.
