Sweet strawberry and a touch of cream…it is so desert like. Now I wish I knew what a zabaglione was…

A big thanks to Rachel for this one. :)

If I wasn’t so fond of plain Earl Grey, I would probably really like this. It isn’t as creamy as I expected and the citrus is a bit too strong. But like I said, that is probably just because I keep comparing it to plain Earl Grey. I probably won’t purchase this again but I like it alright.

This tastes wonderful. A little earthy with lots of cocoa undertones. It’s velvety and luscious. Rich, dark, and a little sweet. It’s a great black.

The tea is really fun to watch unfurl. The earthy cocoa notes are prominent. It is a nice black but not my favorite. With a little cream and sugar, it feels like a cup of coffee.

After reading the reviews on here, I’m wondering if Adagio has changed something. The dry leaves smell overwhelmingly of coconut. I was worried about that since coconut is far from my favorite fruit. Once brewed, you can taste the floral fruitness and yes, lots of coconut. I don’t mind it, it definitely reminds me of a tropical vacation.

This one is sweet on its own. (Actually, it’s too sweet. Milk or extra water helps even it out.) It really does taste like pumpkin loaded with spices. It is nice hot but it is delicious iced.

So yummy! The dry leaves smell decidedly like chai tea. Once steeped, the chai really stands out but I still get notes of citrus and ginger. It puts me in the holiday spirit! The only reason this isn’t getting the perfect score is because I like it even better with a bit of honey.

I tend to stay away from Teavana since they are overpriced, hype up the health benefits, and their sales associates are often too pushy. However, I stopped in to look at their tumblers since I haven’t found one I like online or in other stores. I purchased one and have been very happy with it.

I got a cup of this to go (though it was highly recommended that I buy a few ounces and a tin). They didn’t let it steep long enough but it still had a nice balance of citrus and white tea.

Raising my rating. I’ve come to LOVE it iced. It’s just woodsy enough and the cinnamon pairs nicely with a bit of sugar. Perfect when it is chilly outside. This is going to get a permanent tin in my cupboard.
