From Adagio Custom Blends, Cara McGee

A perfectly sweet, normal tea. It tastes like cookies. Fresh baked, perfect, golden chocolate chip cookies. The kind with the crispy edges and gooey, melty centers. Especially with milk added. And then you get the most beautiful, warm, caramel colored tea. It’s just amazing. Really. So perfect.

Another sample from MissB. :) Another fandom tea, and I’m not part of the fandom. Welcome to Night Vale, I believe…

This smells really chocolatey. I put some coconut milk into this one, just because.

It’s not bad. It’s quite faint chocolate, but I think there would be more flavour if a little sweetener was added to the tea. I think I preferred the blueberry Tardis tea, though. The chocolate just isn’t quite the right chocolate flavour for me.

I’ve yet to try this, it was the ingredient list that got me!

OMGsrsly

had a giant cup first thing when i got to the office, along with my chocolate tea biscuits,
because CHOooCOOLAAATEEEE!

It’s a good day for biscuits! Chocolate + Perfect Carlos – of course! Perfection is perfect. (Also perfect is the Terry Gross Joaquin Phoenix interview – no spoilers for the movie, just a warm fuzzy feeling of personal acceptance and self deprecation.)

I steeped this for only 3 minutes, yet I think it’s too much. It definitely tastes like cookies – the kind you’d get at McDonalds, the cheapo chocolate chip ones that I haven’t had since I was a little kid anyway, so maybe I’m out to left field. However, it tastes like burnt, cheapo chocolate chip cookies. It’s bitter. It’s astringent. If it weren’t for those two things, I’d wholeheartedly recommend this tea to any gluten or grain -free person who misses their “real” cookie fix, because this is pretty darn close.

Will try steeping this again for only two minutes next time and see what happens.

A huge thank you to MissB, who was kind enough to send me a sample of this wishlist tea that I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to get my hands on. The UK Adagio site is a lot more limited than the US site in terms of stock, and the fandom blends in particular are very limited over here. It’s a shame too, because the fandom blends are what I’m most interested in with Adagio.

This tea reminds me of another fandom blend I really like, but I can’t quite put my finger on what it is. Sort of like the Mycroft blend, if it didn’t have the chai spices? A little of Mrs Hudson thrown into the mix? It reminds me of pancakes. The flavour of the vanilla and almond without milk is absolutely delicious, if a little artificial-leaning, but as I find common in Adagio blends, the tea is too astringent for me to handle without adding milk to temper it. Unfortunately this tones down the almond and vanilla, but brings out a hint of the chocolate more and this is when I get that ‘pancakey’ sort of impression. I could swear there’s a hint of cinnamon in there too, but it’s not listed in the ingredients.

It’s a tasty mug of tea and I’m super happy to have had the opportunity to try it, but thankfully it’s not so amazing that I’m overly upset by the fact that I can’t get my hands on any more of it. As long as I can still have Nine, I’ll be okay as far as the Adagio fandom blends are concerned. Sipdown 225/400.

I had such high hopes for this tea, especially because of its popularity on Adagio’s website. However, I was really let down by the flavors. I kept seeing reviews where people mentioned how it tasted like a chocolate chip cookie. I sadly didn’t get much of that impression. It was honestly kind of weak. Basically all I got was a cup of standard black tea, nothing special in terms of taste. I hate saying that because I really wanted to love it.

Sorry Carlos. You may be perfect, but your tea is not.
I’m not sure what it is? It’s strong, and chocolatey but also slightly astringent? And just… idk. Lacking.

It’s a tea that only Cecil could love.

Daddyselephant

I find all of adagio’s black teas to be very astringent, and I end up steeping them at well under boiling to try and avoid it.

Cavocorax

I’ll have to use a lower temperature next time!

Okay, WTNV tea #2. This one opened with a very strong chocolate aroma, almost overpowering, but it promised a very delicious experience which it didn’t really live up to.

The aroma softened quite a bit upon steeping to a slightly less pungent chocolate/almond. I let it cool for about eight minutes so I could actually start drinking without burning my mouth. I got a definite “cookie” flavor, but it was subtle and not terribly sweet, so I added a little brown sugar for kicks, which helped. On further sippage I could begin to taste the chocolate, though it certainly wasn’t as strong as I had hoped (I brewed it using an open tea strainer instead of a bag, hoping to let the chocolate melt out into the tea).

Hoping to make a more drinkable tea, I then added a little bit of milk and a little chocolate syrup (because hey, why not?) and it just continued to fall flat. As it cooled, a more obvious chocolate flavor started sitting at the back of my tongue, and I began to enjoy it more with each sip. Not a bad tea, yummy but not very exciting. It would probably be a good tea for just before bed (caffeine doesn’t affect me unless it’s in huge doses, so I’m perfectly fine drinking black tea and then falling asleep).

thank you cavo! This is not a tea for me. Sadly, this is one where the black adagio base is coming through strongly and the only other flavour i get in this one is almond. I know there were chocolate chips in here and such but really..it’s just a cup of "meh"lightly flavoured almond water with that adagio base.

(but now i’m SO caught up to variaTEA hahahaha!)

VariaTEA

MUST SIPDOWN MORE TEAS!! Are you going for the 190? Is that the goal here?

Sil

lol yeah… i don’t know if i’ll make it, but i’m going for 190 today…from 208? lol but i’ve been up forever today…. and thankfully i’ve got lots of small samples.

VariaTEA

Good luck! I doubt I will hit that however in theory I will be sending teas away soon so my cupboard will shrink (YAY!)

Sil

haha yeah, i packed up the BBB box today so i could get one sipdown that way hahaha

Terri HarpLady

Hopefully TastyBrew will hang on to it for a little while, :)

Sil

haha i likely won’t get it out until next weekend…i’m stupidly busy this week and super tired today so i don’t wanna leave the house

Terri HarpLady

That’s ok with me. I held on to it for weeks…mostly cuz I was too busy & disorganized to send it back out.

Sil

yep…it’s kinda nice that way.. no pressure

It tasted like a weak Almond Joy to me. I’m just not having any luck today trying these new flavors. Yesterday, I had one that was really good…but just not feeling the love from this cup. There was nothing that ‘popped’ for me in this tea.
