From Adagio Teas

Combining savory almond slices with the bright, fruity taste of Formosa oolong tea, our Almond tea is a great stand-alone drink as well as the perfect dessert complement. In fact, it is so versatile that, if you don’t like our Almond tea, you’re probably the one that’s nuts.

Good tea: very fragrant leaves, aromatic brew, great tasting tea. The oolong is rich in flavor with a hint of almond as the final note. Drank hot with no additives. This is my first Adagio flavored oolong, but I must admit, I am intrigued and interested in getting more.

They’re all good! I like this one more than their flavored black. But if you’re looking for a peach oolong, compare their’s to their Dancong Aria- it’s technically unflavored, but I describe it as “peachy keen” lol.

*their almond flavored black

Cinoi

haha, good to know that they’re all good! i’m going to have to expand my horizons on the flavored oolongs :)

My favorite caramel tea is actually a caramel oolong from www.botanicalindulgence.com although I’m looking for a good caramel green. I’m not a black tea fan and I hate that there are so many more flavored blacks than green, white, oolong, yellow (have yet to find a flavored yellow), pu erhs.

Madison Bartholemew

you’re right… I have never seen a flavored yellow…

I enjoyed this. You could really taste the almonds in it which was really nice. It reminded me of sweetened almond milk, which I suppose would be a good thing since it is supposed to taste like almonds. Only thing I didn’t like is there was a bit of perfumey taste to it.

I had to put a lot of freakin’ leaves into the teapot to get any almond out of this tea, and even then it was rather disappointing. It was faintly like almond milk.

The two flavors – almond milk and Formosa oolong – didn’t really match each other. I mean, they didn’t taste bad exactly, but this was not a truly blended tea, just a half-hearted attempt at it.

Ok, so this one is too smokey and too burnt tasting. I could barely finish the cup, even with some milk put in to mellow the flavors. I don’t think I’ll be trying this again, since both times I had it this tea really made me feel like my head was in a meat-smoker.

This tea isn’t terrible. It’s not bad. It’s just.. stunningly mediocre, like many of Adagio’s flavored teas. There’s so much flavor bursting from them that it seems fake. I like flavor to come directly from the tea leaf, not additives or flavorings. This smells good, but it’s so overpowering, just like their Vanilla Oolong that I recently swapped away. And the tea’s the same way. I love almonds, but it’s overwhelming, screamingly almonds. I can’t taste any oolong.

Ugh. I don’t think I’ll be trying any new Adagio samples for awhile.

I’ve been having the same experience with Adagio’s teas. Too much artificial flavoring + a mediocre base = I probably won’t order from them any more.

This is another tea I picked up courtesy of the Travelling Teabox – I like the idea of flavoured oolongs and I’d had my eye on this particular one for awhile.

I love almond-flavoured foods and drinks and this tea doesn’t disappoint. The scent is reasonably subtle but the tea itself is quite flavourful. I’d liken the almond taste more to almond extract rather than just the plain nuts, and I think it mixed well with the roasted, slightly earthy flavours of the dark oolong base.

The leaves have a fantastic aroma that reminds me of amaretto. It’s a nutty, almost liquor-like smell that is very inviting. The tea itself still has a smooth almond accent to it that isn’t sugary or over sweet, though the aroma and the flavor does mellow out from the aroma of the leaves.

In terms of taste, this tea has a sweet almond flavor that’s smooth on the palette with no bitterness. It’s pleasant, though the almond flavor could be a little stronger.

Not a big complaint though; as this one’s a keeper.

Thanks to Will Work For Tea for sending me a sample of this. I have to say, it has a strong nutty flavor to it, almost a bit overpowering at times. I am a fan of almonds in general, though am still a bit undecided about how I feel about almond teas. I will say that there is a wonderfully pleasant lingering taste of honey that sticks around long after the last sip of tea that I really enjoy. I have enough to make another cup or so and am going to try to put this one over a bit of ice or add a bit of cream to see how I can better enhance that honey like flavor. Over all a good tea and I am glad to try it. I don’t think I would buy any sort of large amount of it though.

Will Work For Tea

Mmmm… cream – I bet that’d be good!

I soooo love this flavored oolong – it smells like amaretto and if you add a little rock sugar it tastes like Jordan Almonds. Very smooth.

Thank you to The Quiet Life for sending me this tea!

I can taste the almond but I am still not entirely sure how to put how I feel about this tea in words. So I will have more and come back with a better log.
