Thanks so much for sending this one, Starfevre! This tea is bad news… because I’ve loved every Adagio I’ve tried. It definitely isn’t just bad teas with a gimmick that you can blend them… they are really good teas! This one is SO aptly named! It leaves smell like chocolate chips, pouring out the tea just fills the air with chocolate. The flavor is amazing, deep, dark and chocolatey, though it does dry the mouth a bit. There is a hint of coconut. It’s like a sweeter coffee… or it reminds me of the Della Terra cappuccino blend (so uh… maybe it reminds me of cappuccino??) The flavor certainly IS sweet and bitter in the best possible way. The steep color even looks like a cup of coffee. You’d be able to fool me, since I’ve barely ever drank coffee. This one seems more like coffee than tea! The second steep is just as delicious (though a bit less coffee like).

This tea bites back! Its bitter to start but gets sweeter as it goes down. I would suggest if you want it sweeter and to cut the bitterness to add some of Adagios Tea Honey and some white sugar crystals just to bring out the sweetness and balance out the bitter. The flavor profile changes dramatically once its cooled quite a bit with no ice, it tastes just sweet but with a bitter undertone!
This is my first hand at making a tea blend and over all I am happy with it to an extent only because I still have to learn how to portion teas properly but I wanted something bitter and sweet and this popped into my head I know the Vanilla is a little tart for me for some odd reason but it is a great tea, so I try it and if its not you your liking then at least you can say you tried. Also as it cools the tartness sort of fades and it gets sweeter and leaves a nice sweet but tart undertone. (Also My Art Work Looks Like A Two Year Old Did It. Sorry About That.)
