This is pretty good, although not as yummy as the “Sun Tea” version (Orange Red Carrot). It’s a nice medley of fruit and spice, although both flavors are muted. Worth a try since it’s herbal/green rooibos (my fave for its sweetness). I wonder what this would taste like with a dash of cinnamon/cinnamon tea…

No rating as this is my own blend from Adagio.
I really do enjoy this cup of cherries, chocolate and cream – with no fat! I do add sweetener as I find some of Adagio’s teas are too astringent. If anyone wants a sample, PM me. :) I like to keep my stock rotating so I can buy more!
I can just tell it’s gonna be one of those days…so I’m starting out right, with a cup of this abfab chai. Please see other tasting notes; this is a fave! :)
This one is easily my fave of 52Teas. I love the combo of maple syrup and butter – pancakes without the calories! Since I let this steep for the length of the cup, second infusions don’t go too well. But if you steeped for just a few minutes you could probably reuse the leaves.
I never got to try the Strawberry Pancake one…waiting patiently for a blueberry or chocolate chip version… (hint hint, wink wink)
Started my AM off with this cuppa. I really enjoy this one iced as well (although today the cuppa was hot). The coconut flavor is strong, but not overpowering; there’s just enough tropical spirit to get you in the mood for a vacation!

I added less jasmine pearls and more natural flavors with my recent batch.
It’s a great afternoon tea, especially iced. :)
As this was a blend for my b-day week, I had to give it a shot. Frank, please consider adding this one to your permanent collection too! I love this bright-eyed cuppa! Citrus and lemon flavors mix wonderfully with a light-tasting yerba mate and guayusa blend that just rocks!
Can’t wait to try this one iced! If I have any left, that is… Oh, and I let it steep for the length of the cup, which means the last few sips were super-charged and super citrus-y – which I love.
Frank, this one is a gem. Delish!
I completely forgot about these selections from Rishi. Major Tea Fail over here, I know.
The dry leaves smell like bright floral – like flowers in a summer garden. First steep and the liquor is a gorgeous golden brown, looks very luxe. First sip and I taste the soft peach and bright floral flavors. It’s quite the sipdown! Second steep, same flavors, same crispy flavor. This one’s a winner, guys!
Another cuppa this fave. It’s great in the fall, but I’m enjoying it more and more iced. Absolutely delightful. Spicy and sexy in a way…
This is an interesting cuppa. I normally don’t care for mate, but I love the combo of vanilla and mint so I took a chance. You can barely taste the mate base, which I love – but people who like mate may not like that fact. The flavors of vanilla and mint are both prominent, so you can taste both individually, yet the blending of both is phenomenal. I’d recommend this one for an AM cuppa: it’s caffeine-charged and the flavor is tasty.
This is such a fragrant cuppa. I love the peach and strawberry flavors, and love the aroma as it is steeping. You can do at least two infusions too, which is always nice. (Gotta stretch that tea budget dollar!) Please see other notes; this is a fave.
I’m ending the afternoon with this cuppa. I really like the medley of berry flavors and the hint of lemon. I did add sugar to cut the stringency, but that’s a personal choice. Love the aroma on this one too. I’ll have to try iced.
Still one of my faves no matter how often I brew. I let it steep well over 30 minutes (had a last minute meeting) and the result? A spicy, flavorful cuppa.
Upped the rating on this one. As tomorrow is St. Paddy’s Day, and I am full-blooded Irish (maiden name is Fitzpatrick), I thought this was apropos. This is a brisk wake-up cuppa, which I need on this grimy gray day.
Deliciousness. I need this today. Mixes well with Bohemian Rhapsody, which is on my Spotify right now. :)
Enjoying a cuppa to settle my tummy. This, plus a little Slipknot and lots of Marilyn Manson are helping me feel better.
This tea is great iced as well. Or, well, not hot, as I got talking about Lost Girl and Pretty Little Liars with a coworker and forgot about my tea.
It’s been one of those days.
I blame the solar flare.
Feeling out of sorts lately. This one is keeping me grounded today. Love the spicy taste and the hearty warmth of the flavors. Yums!

I really enjoy this. It’s not too tart (I’m not a fan of that sour, bitter, hibiscus-ness), and the lemongrass and green rooibos citron really cut that taste. I added a little sugar too since I’m addicted to sugar.
I steeped for about five minutes to get the max flavor. I think this would be great iced – haven’t tried it yet.
PM me if you want a sample! :)
Tried this one hot again. I’m still not sold. I think it really is better iced. I’ll save it for warmer weather. Drinking it hot reminds me of Theraflu. Not hating on Theraflu, but that’s not what I want to drink when I’m aiming for tea. ;)
This is one of those teas I enjoy because it’s hard to mess up. I also love the name! As a military and gun buff, it’s fitting. Dry, the leaves remind me of the inside of a Sunny Surplus store. Not sure if anyone will have any idea what I mean…
It’s smoky, but not overkill like Lapsang can be.
I also enjoy this cuppa while playing any game in the Call of Duty series on my beloved xbox 360! :)
I enjoy this version much more than the Stash variety, which was paler in color and blander in flavor. This version has a touch of smokiness and I’m sure would pair great with something minty… A new blend to try! :)

I just love the mix of chocolate, vanilla (cream) and cherry. Often I can’t have chocolate – I’m allergic to an enzyme that is in milk chocolate and many dairy products (including ice cream). So drinking my chocolate is truly bliss.
The folks at Adagio do a great job blending. I run through this one often, and it tastes the same each batch – the perfect harmony of cherry, chocolate and cream.
Just don’t seep longer than four minutes, unless you enjoy bitter-ish tea…
This used to be one of my favorite bagged varieties. I guess it still is… I like that lack of tart, that HIBISCUS that many fruity teas tend to have. This is bold and hearty, with a twinge of raspberry. I added some sweetener, to enhance the flavor.
OK, OK. I added it because I have a sweet tooth. You caught me!
I swear this used to be called English Breakfast. Now it’s English Teatime and there’s a pink box for English Breakfast…
Anyway, the chai didn’t wake me up enough so I went hard core. This has a very pleasant tea taste, robust and hearty. And caffeine-y.
I need to find my “fast lane” tea – that’ll get the job done.
