I ordered this because the Honeybush tea was out of stock. It’s not terrible, but it has more of the smokey, medicinal taste of Rooibos than I prefer. I probably won’t order it again.

I ordered this because I am currently pregnant, and its THE herb that is recommended to pregnant women. It has a mild, grassy taste somewhat like a milder green tea. It tastes like it would work well in blends, but I’ve yet to try that. I like getting herbs from Rose Mountain since they are cheap, good quality, and organic.

I have always loved the smell of Hazelnut coffee, but I can’t stand the taste of coffee. For a long time I hoped someone would make a Hazelnut cocoa, just so I could have something that smelled that good. Eventually I stumbled upon Adagio’s hazelnut honeybush tea, and it’s a dream come true. The flavors blend beautifully and it’s a delicious, although mild tea. I especially like it with some chai spices added in.

I tried this a couple months ago, and haven’t been able to get a hold of it since. It seems to be quite popular, and for good reason. It has a strong and well-balanced lemon-ginger flavor, and is pleasantly sweet. The lemon does taste somewhat artificial, like lemon candy, but I found the taste quite pleasant.

Flavors: Candy, Ginger, Lemon

drank Chamomile by Adagio Teas

I usually really enjoy Chamomile, so I ordered some from Adagio. To my disgust it was musty and grassy, rather than lightly sweet and floral. Thinking I maybe had a bad batch, I ordered some in a coffee shop that served Adagio teas. It was again musty and grassy. Thanks, but I’ll go back to my bagged varieties.

Flavors: Grass, Musty

This tea tastes fine on the first sip, a somewhat artificial apple flavor, with a strong kick of cinnamon, but even if you take out the teabag it quickly gets more and more sweet until it is so sweet that it is utterly undrinkable. I do not recommend it.

I really didn’t enjoy this tea. It tasted to me like sweetened artificial butter flavoring and smelled like pineapple. The combination was very unpleasant to me. I ended up throwing the rest of the box out.

I really enjoy this tea. The spices aren’t very strong, but it has a lovely sweet orange flavor. It doesn’t taste artificial to me at all. I drink it plain, with chai spices, and in a variety of homemade blends, and enjoy it every time.

I always keep Chamomile tea in my cupboard, and drink it most days. It has a mild, flowery flavor that is somewhat reminiscent of apples. It’s a very relaxing and comforting tea, and good for the digestion. I’m not overly picky about where my chamomile comes from (though some loose versions taste very strange, so be careful there), and Celestial Seasonings’ Chamomile is quite good.

Flavors: Apple, Floral
