This is an amazingly good tasting herbal tea. It brews up purple and tastes like fresh blueberry jelly or something similar. The only shame is that it’s decaf. I wish the grocery stores around me carried this brand.

drank Citron Green by Adagio Teas

This tea tastes just like Froot Loops to me! Especially if you steep it for 4 minutes or more. It brews up yellowy green and smells like lemons. Really refreshing. I can’t wait to try it cold. I’ll probably be ordering more. However, I think you should go with two teaspoons instead of one per cup.

drank Pineapple by Adagio Teas

Although the pineapple taste didn’t carry over to tea form very well, I still enjoyed this blend. It’s good hot, but much better iced. The flavor kinda makes me think of pina coladas. When I found out it was being discontinued, I bought a lot of it.

drank Eggnogg'n Tea by Bigelow

I’m actually pretty impressed by this seasonal blend. It has a really smooth, creamy taste that’s just like eggnogg. If they bring it back, I might have to pick up a box. Makes a great dessert tea.

drank Pomegranate by Adagio Teas

Delicious! It has a light but very yummy, sort of tart pomegranate taste. As usual with Adagio, the ceylon taste is strong, but I still love this blend. I’ll probably get more next time I restock my tea collection.

drank White Pear by Adagio Teas

This sounded so good when I ordered it. I’m crazy about anything pear, but this… it was a huge disappointment. Even when brewed with twice as much tea as recommended, it still barely has any flavor. And what flavor you do get tastes nothing like pears. The tea itself doesn’t even really smell like pears. When I drank my last cup, there was a kinda unpleasant aftertaste, but mostly I could only taste the sugar I put in it. :(

I’ve been on the lookout for a good pear tea. Will not be trying this one!

drank Vanilla by Adagio Teas
490 tasting notes

I really love this tea, but I wish the vanilla taste was stronger. The taste of the ceylon overpowers it. And yet, I probably will keep buying it. :) It’s wonderful to mix with fruity blends. Adds a smooth dimension to any tea.

drank Blueberry Rooibos by Rishi Tea
490 tasting notes

First of all, this tea smells amazing. When I opened the tin, the room instantly filled with a mouth-watering blueberry scent. But I’m just not a fan of rooibos. It has that odd rooibos aftertaste that I just can’t get used to. Aside from that, though, it’s a great tea. If you’re into flavored rooibos, I’d say to go for it. It brews up a nice shade of magenta.

drank Blueberry by Adagio Teas

Before I say anything, I need to say that the blueberry flavor in this is STRONG. So strong that my ingenuiTea smelled like blueberries for a week. Aside from that, this is a good tea. Not my favorite blueberry tea, but it’s still very good. I’d definitely recommend it.

drank Emerald Spring by Adagio Teas
490 tasting notes

I guess it’s kinda odd to review a tea I made, but I’m going to anyway. :) It’s a blend of three green teas and tastes very fresh and clean with a hint of Froot Loops. To get a perfect cup, I brew two teaspoons per cup at 180 degrees. This tea was featured and reviewed on Adagio TeaV on March 23rd, ’09.

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, chai, and pretty much any black tea from Fujian, China. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, lychee, osmanthus, cucumber, sage, lavender, 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.
