drank Mango by Adagio Teas

One of my favorite Adagio teas! It was one of the first I’ve ever tried, too. The mango taste isn’t overwhelming along with the ceylon. I’ve noticed a lot of mango teas have a strong orange flavor added, but this one doesn’t. It’s just so good.

I would have never thought to put sage in a tea, but it was a great idea. I’ve been drinking this tea on and off for years. It’s a mainstay for my tea collection.

drank Forest Berries by Adagio Teas

Wow… I thought this tea sounded like a good idea. I usually love berry flavored anything, but I couldn’t stand this stuff. It has a strange scent that turned me off before I brewed it. Couldn’t even finish my first cup. I ended up dumping it out.

drank Guanabana by Adagio Teas

Nothing but love, love, love for guanabana! I need to get myself a big tin of this. It does taste very exotic in a way that’s hard to describe. There is a sort of strawberry-ish flavor, and definitely some citrus, but otherwise… this is just a tea you have to try to understand. It’s a favorite for me, and my friends really like it, too. Last time I made tea at a friend’s house, everyone ended up drinking two cups. It’s especially yummy with a glob of honey.

Of the few Zodiac Series teas I’ve tried, this is the one I’ve liked the most. It tastes of peach, but it’s a light flavor as compared to the taste of the tea itself. I think it’s a great tea for summer, and it’s good iced, too! I served it to a few of my friends and they enjoyed it as well. But maybe I favor it because I’m a Gemini, myself…

drank Passion by Tazo

This is my favorite tea by Tazo. It brews up deep red and smells delicious. Like citrus, hibiscus and something else that’s wonderful. It has a very strong flavor, which is something I look for, and tastes even better cold. I love it iced! I just wish I could get it in loose form instead of bagged.

This was a really interesting tea. It’s a blend of oolong, chamomile, and rooibos. I’m not usually a fan of rooibos, but I liked this. Its flavor reminds me of a dreamsicle… vanilla and orange are the strongest tastes. But it’s not an artificial orange. It tastes very natural and creamy. And it’s fun to brew with all the little chamomile flowers floating at the top.

drank White Blueberry by Adagio Teas

This tea is delicious! It even has little dried blueberries in it. :D I usually go with two and a half teaspoons instead of one because I like my tea to have a stronger flavor. When it comes to Adagio, I’m usually not too impressed with their white teas, but this one is great. It’s the perfect tea to get into whites if you haven’t tried any.

drank Cream by Adagio Teas
471 tasting notes

There’s just something about this tea that I don’t like. It has a great, strong black tea taste, but at the same time, I couldn’t really taste the cream. There was a sort of sour flavor, like cream that maybe sat out a little too long. I know this is a favorite to others, but it just didn’t strike a chord with me.

drank Bleu Peacock by Mighty Leaf Tea

I got this tea in a trade and was really curious. It’s a very green oolong, with a truly unique flavor. I can’t say I like it in large doses, and I couldn’t stand it cold, but it’s definitely worth trying. It brews up pale yellow and tastes… “purple”. It’s hard to describe, really. There’s a vegetal oolong taste, but mostly… it just tastes purple. The tea itself is lovely to look at, however… lots of green, blue, and yellow.

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.
