From Adagio Teas

Green tea from China with the delicate flavors of lemon and lime. A happy marriage of great taste and proven health benefits. Just the right touch of citrus flavors to liven up the cup. Makes a light and refreshing drink that’s popular both hot and iced. If you are new to green tea, this lightly flavored tea may be a good place to start.

How does this tea compare to Teavana’s Citron Green? I’m using Teavana’s green for a blend, but Adagio’s is sooo much cheaper.

Very nice but i prefer the Mandarin Green instead. Watch the steep time carefully; over steeping this tea will turn the subtle flavor into a disgusting brew

Dry Leaf Nose: Slightly grassy with a bright citrus note.

Liquor:Light green with orange tint

Flavour: At first the citrus is super bright. As the sipping continues, the citrus mellows out and becomes enjoyable. The tea is very smooth and not overly grassy like some green teas. I don’t usually like citron heavy teas but this one is a keeper.

Smells like lemon or lime lollipops to me (no alliteration intended, haha). Initially tasted the same, but now after a couple minutes I am starting to detect the tea in there too. I wasn’t sure on the first couple sips, but after finishing the cup, I like it.

My favorite green tea so far. I love the lemon/lime notes which are strong on the nose and noticeable in the taste. The taste is mildly earthy, but not bitter or grassy.

I wanted to try a differnt brand tea and opted for Adagio based upon some of the feedback on this site. So far so good! I purchased the green tea sampler. So far, I have only tried this flavor.

Alone, it’s a bit too “green” for me. I wish I liked straight green, but so far in the loose leaf tea everything I’ve tried has been too grassy for me (both Chinese and Japanese varities ;-/) Sooooo…. I also ordered the Mate sampler and opted to blend this with the spice blend. I was happy with the combo. Not my all time favorite, but tasty.

I find that the taste of the tea itself is overpowered by the lemon and lime to an unpleasant degree. Add a little sweetener, and this would taste exactly like Froot Loops.

I’m not a big fan of green teas, but this doesn’t have the harsh tastes I find in green teas. I really love the taste of this and it’s a good tea to drink in the morning.
