Being new to loose leaf teas, yet obsessively trying new varieties all the time, I stayed clear of any Earl Greys because of my experience with cheap tea bags in the past.
I love darjeeling blacks and I’m slowly appreciating any quality Earl Greys.
This is a great choice. Nicely smooth and light with the Bergamot flavor makes this a perfect choice for me.
I’m looking forward to trying the other choices that Harney offers, because this left a nice impression
I’m impressed that I can actually taste the Guava with every sip. This is a nice tea. I’m guessing my “tea palette” is maturing, because I actually taste the green tea & black here. Is it gunpowder? hmm tastes smokey maybe.
..anyway, it’s an actual "tropical’ tea that’s not just pineapple & coconut..the Guava makes it more refined
I love blueberry black teas and this one elevates it to a higher level. Boo-berry was always my favorite cereal growing up-this is obviously a healthier alternative ;)
The marshmallow is mellow, but it’s definitely there. The flavor is natural, sweet & smooth and allows the black tea to come through.
I didn’t add sugar, but it could help bring out the flavors

My first “green” from 52teas and it hits high marks. It’s exactly what the description says. I really enjoy tasting all flavors here..the green tea, the clean strawberry flavor..and right at the end I taste some maple.
Nothing overpowers you here-you know you are drinking a green tea. I’ve had similar teas that included Sencha and strawberries, but this is an extra special treat.
With all the not so great reviews here I was a little insecure to post a positive one ;) I really like this tea. Wish it were creamier. I noticed that it can be over brewed easily-maybe that’s with all Earl Greys. It turns bitter easily 3 minutes-max (for me)
Great aroma. I know Argo tea sells a drink with Earl Grey Vanilla with sugar and (soy) milk, so I tried my version at home using Adagio’s blend. works fine (plus hell of a lot cheaper)
This is one of my favorite flavored blacks from Adagio. I think they got it right here. Works well iced. Great aroma.
Nice robust berry flavors. I’m happy
Yes, I love this tea. It’s actually my first time trying any kind of honeybush. The smell is awesome. Smells like the sweetest bananas…very perfumery, when they are so ripe that they are ready to make bread with.
The flavor is alive..the taste of real, sweet bananas.
I didn’t add any sweetener. I thought I was going to, but it didn’t need it….although, maybe next time I will add some sugar and (soy) milk to experiment a little
I’m actually a fan of this tea. It’s definitely has a mellow-creamy pumpkin flavor without all the spices normally attached with pumpkin…. pumpkin anything actually. One of the thing that bugs me about pumpkin flavored (anything) is that it usually has strong cinnamon/cloves/ginger that detracts from the pumpkin. This tea does not-so I’m a fan.
A little sugar helps bring it all out and maybe some (soy) milk.
This is a great, unique herbal blend that I had a sample. But here’s the thing..I have a big bag of chamomile and Vanilla Roiboos at home and all I needed was peppermint. So, now I make my own blend, sometimes using spearmint.
I suggest doing that, so you can do peppermint or spearmint when the mood strikes….
but it’s a nice blend if you want something already mixed ;)
I think I had this alone once and I liked it, but I’ve mostly been adding it to other teas (black) to add a nice vanilla note. I like it that way.
My usual use for it is to add it to chamomile and spearmint or peppermint….which I think Adagio calls Foxtrot, but why buy it when I have all the ingredients?
Anyway, my point? A nice vanilla flavor to a fine Rooibos.
I must admit I’m new to Rooibos.
One of my favorite greens ever. A nice light & natural lemon-lime flavor.
Great iced with or without sugar..always with a little citric acid or vitamin C to add an acidic element and it’s a great iced tea. This citron flavor compliments the green tea nicely
A great pumpkin tea. Not sure what else to say that already has not been said, but the aroma is awesome…Great pumpkin/sweet/syrupy flavor, but the tea also comes through. A little sugar and maybe some (soy) milk helps it along.
Perfect for October & November
I like this tea..not too strong, but it does have a natural banana flavor. It’s subtle, but all the flavors come out. My impression would be any more banana flavor and it might taste too unnatural…and at what point do you want the flavor or the tea? Needs a little sweetener, though to bring out the banana flavor.
I should try it cold
So, I was at a Chinese market a while back and went into the tea isle which is about 50 feet long…there I see Rose Black loose leaf tea 80z for maybe $1.99. I had to get it….damn it tasted like nothing…so, I was jaded.
When I saw Rose Black as a sample at enjoyingtea.com, I had to give it a try.
Nice tea, a real rose/floral flavor. Not too strong either way-the tea or the rose. It’s soothing and definitely worth brewing
I love Hazelnuts. I love Hazelnut Coffee. This is the tea version. Real toasty hazelnut flavor with a complimentary tea base. I’ve only tried it plain, but I should experiment with sugar & some soy milk.
Smells great before brewing, just as nice after
Probably great to blend with vanilla or some berry. I’ll have to do that
This is my first Irish Breakfast ever, so I have nothing to compare it to. That being said, I really like it and it’s my “go-to strong black blend” I do tatse the complex notes of flavors..boldness, maltiness, notes of hay, savory, sweet, all that.
As a matter of fact, shouldn’t Adagio use this blend as a base for some of their flavored teas instead of using just Ceylon Sonata? It would probably make their other teas more interesting
I’m a fan of this tea. A great aroma before brewing. A crisp citrus flavor that kinda overlays the veggie tasting green tea-that’s a good thing.
It’s great iced. I put a little Agave nectar to give it some body and add some citric acid to bring some tartness to it (but not to make it sour)
It’s a good way to drink more green tea, because I usually favor black.
so disappointed in this Tea. Never having a pumpkin flavored tea I was looking forward to this one. No pumpkin flavor to speak of and boring use of spices.
I like Cinnamon as a spice, but I also feel it has it’s place in the Culinary World. It’s often overused and added when not needed. I tend to stray away from anything that’s cinnamon flavored, because they tend to use the wrong variety.
This tea I really enjoy and has a pleasing cinnamon taste without all that pungency. The type sometimes used reminds me of a craft store during the Holidays-not this tea. I won’t drink it all the time, but when I’m in the mood for a spice, without complication, I’ll go for this Tea.
Of course, anyone who enjoys cinnamon will probably really like it
My friend purchased Adagio’s “Holiday Sampler” not too long ago and let me try each flavor. I was pretty excited about trying this one and I have to admit had my own ideas what it should taste like. I mean, it should taste like a Candy Apple, right? Mostly apple and a sugary sweet-maybe cherry background flavor? Not at all. I barely got a taste of apple and a strong cinnamon pungency overwhelmed it. Cinnamon has nothing to do with Candle Apples! It’s that nasty cinnamon that smells like those Christmas Reefs you smell during the Holidays. Apples don’t always have to be pared with Cinnamon.
I was very disappointed.
