drank Rooibos Vanilla by Adagio Teas

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.

drank Citron Green by Adagio Teas

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 love the flavor, but I don’t like that you can’t buy it at any time.

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

drank Hazelnut by Adagio Teas
71 tasting notes

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

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

drank Irish Breakfast by Adagio Teas
71 tasting notes

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

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

drank Citron Green by Adagio Teas

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.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec

drank Pumpkin Spice by Adagio Teas

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
