339 Tasting Notes
This is good stuff!
I love hazelnut flavored things, especially coffee and tea. The thing I love about the Adagio tea sampler that I got is how genuine the flavorings are. I feel like I’m really eating hazelnuts here. It’s earthy and perfect for the fall. My timing on ordering this sampler was just about perfect, if I do say so myself.
My only criticism is that the base is VERY strong, and can be oversteeped super easily, thereby becoming bitter and astringent very quickly.
A+ on the flavoring, B- on the base.
If I didn’t have a million other teas to drink, I would totally restock this one immediately. I loved it! So much better than the original Sleepytime. This was a stroke of brilliance by Celestial Seasonings, adding vanilla to this iconic blend.
The vanilla just adds another dimension to it— makes it feel like a treat.
I will be buying more of this— after I get my other teas sipped down.
Holy cow, is this a nutty tea!
I’m getting lots of vanilla, but also a coating like that almonds leave in your mouth. I’ve chewed actual vanilla bean before, so I can attest that the flavoring is authentic.
At first I didn’t quite understand what this was doing in my Nuts & Spice Sampler pack, but now I 100% get it.
Tried this one again. Bumping up my rating.
I think I oversteeped it last time. I remember the raspberry and the black base being very acid-like and not pleasant, but today it was much mellower.
Still not getting much bergamot. It’s a nice idea in theory, but in practice, raspberry and bergamot tend to be two dominant flavors, so they don’t really play nice together. In this case, the raspberry tackles the bergamot and sits on its chest, wrestling-style.
This’ll never be a favorite, but it’s certainly accessible as a work tea.
Okay, I actually do like this one. Phew!
It tastes sweet and fruity. I’m getting notes of toasted coconut, plum blossom, and licorice. Interesting.
Again, I’m glad I don’t have a whole canister of it, but I wouldn’t mind drinking this one again. It leaves a pleasant taste in the mouth. Good plain, excellent with a little honey.
Flavors: Coconut, Licorice, Plums
Extremely uninteresting chamomile-based blend. I agree with another reviewer- this tastes like celery. It’s also unsettlingly translucent. I’m glad I only got four bags of it in the sampler from the grocery store, because suffering my way through a whole canister of this would have sucked majorly.
“Italian Chamomile.” Gimme a break. It is CLEARLY just your average bagged Roman chamomile tea.
Side note- Licorice root is apparently a remedy for nausea, but it actually makes me nauseous. Am I weird for that?
Flavors: Flowers, Herbs, Wet Wood
