This tea isn’t terrible. It’s not bad. It’s just.. stunningly mediocre, like many of Adagio’s flavored teas. There’s so much flavor bursting from them that it seems fake. I like flavor to come directly from the tea leaf, not additives or flavorings. This smells good, but it’s so overpowering, just like their Vanilla Oolong that I recently swapped away. And the tea’s the same way. I love almonds, but it’s overwhelming, screamingly almonds. I can’t taste any oolong.

Ugh. I don’t think I’ll be trying any new Adagio samples for awhile.

I’ve been having the same experience with Adagio’s teas. Too much artificial flavoring + a mediocre base = I probably won’t order from them any more.

“Stunningly Mediocre” — would make a great T-shirt.

I’m (almost) always up for a trade, so comment on a tasting note if you’re interested. I try to keep my cupboard up to date.

I’m a 23 year-old grant writer who loves having a good strong tea by my side as I write. I love The Mountain Goats, cooking, the Steelers, writing, beer, and singing in my office band.
