got a sample of this stuff in a pyramid bag with my latest adagio order. not bad! i used 3 packets of stevia and added a bit of half and half. it was a bit too bitter for me without all of that added.

I purchased a sample tim of this from Adagio. I’m not sure if my tea was too old or I just got a bad batch, but I could detect no hint of gingerbread when I opened the tin to smell the dry leaves. So of course after steeping there was no gingerbread to be found. The aroma was to me a very sweet caramel-honey with only the barest hint of spice. I did not taste any ginger or spice when I drank it.
I tried this tea both plain and with sugar. With a little sugar I found it to be a very pleasant black tea to drink, but as a flavored tea it is a disappointment.
Has a very faint taste of spices but overall it is a classic example of a tea that smells a lot better than it tastes. Like a lot of desert flavored teas to taste right you need to add a lot of sugar to it which is something that I do not like being forced to do. Although to its credit my grandmother really likes this one plain so it is a matter of taste among some.
