Backlogging from a few months ago. I love the smell of this tea, but it’s not a favorite. It’s an interesting tea, though. Like sort of a green tea/oolong hybrid.

drank Irish Breakfast by Adagio Teas

Another pot of this to wake me up a little on this damp, cool day. Steeped for 5 minutes at a rolling boil. A little sugar added, as usual. There’s something oddly comforting about this tea that I can’t put my finger on.

drank Mambo by Adagio Teas

This isn’t really my thing. It has a strong sort of vegetable taste that reminds me of my grandmother’s green beans. Very earthy, very dark flavor. I usually prefer fruity, herbal, and floral tastes, but if you like a strong black tea taste, you might like this. It has a very complex taste.

drank Ceylon Sonata by Adagio Teas

So THIS is what they’re using for all the flavored black teas at Adagio. I knew it was Ceylon, but I didn’t know which blend. Anyway, this is a good, standard black tea. The leaves smell sweet and smoky, but the smokiness doesn’t really appear in the tea itself. But that’s alright, I’m not really a fan of smokiness anyway. It brews up a really pleasant shade of amber, and was a great way to start my day.

drank Chai White by Stash Tea Company

I guess I should give this a thumbs up? The spices were delicious, but they were all I could taste. I couldn’t taste the tea itself. A few of these would be good to add to some plain black tea…

I don’t usually go for Irish Breakfast tea, simply because it’s usually boring flavor-wise and I like my tea exotic. But I was really pleasantly surprised by this tea. I like it a lot. The leaves have a very pleasant, sweet smell. I knew I’d like it as soon as I smelled it. I will probably be re-ordering this. It’s also probably good to mix with other teas as a black tea base.

drank Earl Grey Bravo by Adagio Teas

This is the best Earl Grey I’ve ever had. The bergamot isn’t too strong like in a lot I’ve tried. I served it on my balcony to a few friends and they drank every last bit of it.

drank Peach Black by Stash Tea Company

I’m impressed with this. I usually don’t go for bagged tea anymore, but my mom made me a cup and I liked it a lot. It doesn’t just taste like peaches. It’s got a lovely almost floral taste to go along with it.

Like I said about the raspberry version, this is good for what it is. (Cheap canned tea.) No sour aftertaste and delicious mango flavor. It actually tastes like it has mango juice in it. I like it a lot, and will definitely be buying it again to drink on the road or at work.

Not a very strong tea taste, but I’m used to that with canned tea drinks. It’s pretty good for what it is. The raspberry flavor is pleasant with the honey and it doesn’t have that sour aftertaste that a lot of canned teas have (*cough*Arizona*cough*). I’d buy it again… it’s nice to have at work since a lot of gas stations carry it.

Profile

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, golden monkey, chai, and keemun. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, cucumber, sage, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
