From Adagio Teas

In the famous poem ‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’, T.S. Eliot wrote, ‘do I dare to eat a peach?’ The literary-minded folks at Adagio have taken it upon themselves to provide Mr. Eliot with an answer: no need to eat one. Just steep a cup of our premium Formosa oolong tea flavored with sweet peaches. Please, be a peach. Give this tea a try.

I’m still a teanoobie, but this has become one of my “go-to” teas. I don’t know what kind of drugs they lace this stuff with, but it literally makes me feel good every time I drink it. I love the peachy fragrance. I sweeten it with clover honey. Love it, love it, love it.

I like it but I like the custom “Peachy” brew a lot better.

The package on this one says 212 degrees for 3-5 minutes. But my Breville has 195 for oolong. I first tried this per the Breville. 195 and steeped for 5 minutes. Very faint peach flavor. I added the rock sugar and it really brought the flavor out more. Still faith peach. I then did another pot per Adagios instructions. 212 again for 5 minutes. Much better! I added the rock sugar again. And then I liked this tea. It didn’t rock my world but if I had this in my cupboard I would drink it. I don’t think I would go out of my way to purchase it again. I did however learn a lesson- I will trust the blenders directions.

I’ve had this twice so far. The first time I did it gong fu style and the peach flavor stayed nice and strong steep after steep. The second time I did it Western style and the flavor was pretty much done after the first steep. Good to know! You really couldn’t taste any oolong, just peach. Won’t be buying this because I seem myself quickly drifting away from flavored tea…

This tea smells quite juicy when dry. Brewed, the scent dissipated a bit, as well as the flavor. Enjoying it as a second steep now because my office is so cold.

Thanks for the sample Nattie!

Okay, so I finally get around to this – this is from my swap with Kat_Maria, who spoiled me insanely. I mean, I can’t even. No. She sent me EVERY TEA IN THE WORLD. And so much stuff for Project Green and Project Jasmine and Project Peach, I don’t even know how to thank her, except offer to be her European tea dealer for life.

This is a bag – the dry tea smells lovely, and it reminds me of Lupicia’s discontinued Apricot Houji, but with a much rounder, sweeter finish. I was a little surprised to see the suggested steeping time was 5 minutes, with boiling water – I’m used to fairly green oolongs that steep 2 minutes or less. I assume that gives that this is a blacker oolong than what I’m used to, and both in scent and taste this does come off very black to me.

I’m so grateful to Kat_Maria for including this – I have very little experience with Adagio and have been considering placing an order. This sounded like a given Anna tea, but after being presented with the opportunity to sample this beforehand, I won’t include it in my order. Don’t get me wrong – it’s a very good blackish oolong, and the balance of the peach and the tea is very well executed. The peach (a fairly soft, apricoty peach) is present throughout the sip and lingers nicely. And yet, it’s just too black to be oolongy enough for me.

If it were only greener.

Fellow peach lover: My apricot & peach trees have been blooming, & we shall see if I actually get to eat very many fruits. There was, of course, a late frost, which tends to scar them (at best), so time will tell…

Anna

I look forward to updates! I have a hard time imagining anything more satisfying than having a huge stash of peach/apricot preserves of various kinds from one’s own trees.

Terri HarpLady

Yeah…it rarely works out that way! If I were into eating squirrel, maybe I’d get to eat more peaches. There is, unfortunately, no way to keep them away from the trees. But I do usually get to eat some of them, so fresh & juicy.
I have the same issues with the neighborhood birds regarding my berry bushes, but at least they are well fed. This year I’m planting kiwi vine, more red grapes, 3 colors of currants, & 4 elderberry bushes! I used to have a huge strawberry patch. Everybody was thrilled for the first few days of strawberry season, but then I had them out there, twice a day at times, picking strawberries, which I froze. I let the patch go, it was just too big. I need to start a smaller patch, maybe this year, & keep it manageable!

We also keep the local wildlife well-fed with our various fruit trees. We usually manage to get a couple of armloads from each one during a season. Except from the fig tree. The raccoons eat the figs like they were crack. I think we’ve had two figs in all the years that tree has been there. And our cats are way too busy power-napping to be bothered defending their territory. Oh well … such is the balance of life. No sense stressing when there are genuine things to worry about.

Peach adagio is a pretty high quality, I had it from some gourmet grocer in Lexington, when I was in Pharmacy college, much adored, but alas, it was not peach season, and my appreciation for peach dwindled. I think we all would have liked to try your strawberry

Terri HarpLady

TeaX, I really want a fig tree, there is nothing like fresh figs! My gramma had a fig tree, along with a bunch of other fruit trees. She made tons of preserves, with my favorites being figs in a thick syrup (so awesome on lavishly buttered toast!), & the spices apricots. Of course, I can’t actually have sweets much (or toast, dammit), so if I ever reallyl have an amazingly productive year, I’m not sure what I’ll do with all this stuff, but I sure love growing it!

Thank you Kat_Maria for sharing a sample of this tea. Personally, I would not have ever bought this because its an oolong but I ind it is always a good idea to try the adagio teas because you never know what might make it into one of your fandom blends.

I was actually surprised by this one. I was not expecting much other than oolong but the base is actually pretty mild which allows for the candy peach flavor to shine. If I were given the choice, I would choose a different base but at the end of the day, I don’t think I would be as hesitant to buy a blend that has peach oolong in it as I can see this blending well with other flavors. Thank you Kat_Maria for sending this my way and forcing me to try this because now I know I don’t need to completely avoid blends with oolong. That information now opens up my options for fandom blends and that can be very, very dangerous.

This time a bit off. Something unpleasant in initial flavor but then peachy. Will have to pay closer attention to steep times.

Fruity but not overwhelming, this is one of my favorite fruit blends. Peach is summery and makes it perfect for a hot or iced drink!
