576 Tasting Notes
I had really hoped to like this tea but there is something off about it. I normally love popcorn, and maple, plus apples…just maybe not all at once. There were too many competing flavors for this to be enjoyable. I tried a sample from a previous order, but did so AFTER I purchased two bags. As a result, I have one unopened bag for sale:
And the rest of the other bag is off to my tea sister Sare – if she wants it. :)
This is a delicate tea, but still potent. I definitely recommend HOT (iced was quite nasty), and when you need a lift. I’m still battling a cold and this helps, as well as eased some of my migraine last night.
It’s good when you can barely taste anything…but is that really a good thing? IDK – and I don’t know about this one. It’s decent, but I’m not sure if I would buy it again. I definitely prefer Above the Weather.
I got this as a free sample when my replacement order arrived yesterday. (I had several items missing from a previous order, but DT sent the missing items and I scored three more samples.) I’m not normally one to enjoy super chocolate-y teas nor mate, but this blend has changed my mind. The flavor is bold, but not artificial, and yet not overpowering either. I taste a subtle cinnamon flavor too – maybe that helps balance the chocolate flavor. This is delightful and fun, although dusty. I had to wipe the teaspoon free of the tea dust, but that’s a small inconvenience for bliss! :)
Holy crap, Teavana is discontinuing this blend! I ordered one last mix for my stock pile, and I guess I’ll have to explore making chai blends again. This was my favorite for so long…
“I’m offended on so many different levels.” To quote the hilarious Jim Gaffigan
Seriously, though, I drink this the most. WTF Teavana!? You are losing a customer. Oh, they don’t really care.
Please see previous notes as this is a FAVE!
This is a weird one. Good, but weird. I wouldn’t think kiwi would be a bold flavor, but it kind of is in this cuppa. I made this hot, but I think it would be better iced. I taste a tropical adventure, and it’s fun and perky, but it’s missing something… did I expect too much from a kiwi tea? Perhaps.
No rating as this is one of my own custom blends at Adagio. By next year it will be a Keen Tea Thyme blend, completely of my own creation. But until then, you gotta get it through Adagio or in one of my custom sampler packs:
But as for the review – I love the combo of vanilla, caramel and almond and other than that annoying Adagio black tea taste, I think this is decent (entirely self-serving, apologies).
I usually drink my tea plain – no sweetener – but I like adding honey to this to enhance the flavor. Works well; reminds me of the “good” candy corn – Brach’s, made with honey.
I’m surprised I’m the first to log this, but it’s possible it’s in here under another name. I don’t think this is exclusive to Voila! and I get the impression that they don’t craft their own teas…maybe they do! I can’t get a response from them no matter what I do…
Anyway, this is a great harmony of gunpowder green (a favorite of mine) and crisp peppermint. It truly is a refreshing treat!
