Very delicate green that reminds me of both Adagio’s White Symphony and Green Anji. As with many greens, more of the flavors come out as the tea cools. It also tastes sweeter as I go.

drank Toasted Sesame by Adagio Teas
72 tasting notes

I opened the tin with these leaves, smelled them, and was completely disgusted by the strong, burnt sesame smell—almost like soy sauce. I like sesame and soy sauce, but the smell was so gross to me that I almost didn’t make the tea. I’m glad my grandparents always told me that “you have to try everything once.”

After steeping, the cup had a very faint sesame smell, and almost a spice to it. The taste is great: solid black tea with sesame notes and nothing “soy sauce” about it. This was a very nice surprise!

One word: minty. I may have steeped this at too high of a temperature, so I’ll let the water chill for a minute next time.

drank Citron Green by Adagio Teas
72 tasting notes

I don’t quite get the “froot loops” smell that others have mentioned—Earl Grey Bravo smells more like that to me. Regardless, this does have a very strong lemon-lime scent. As usual, I expected the tea to be overwhelmed by the flavor, but I found the citrus to balance quite nicely. A tasty tea that makes me feel summery.

I even resteeped for five minutes and it made a good, while noticeably weaker, cup.

drank Hazelnut by Adagio Teas

This tea sure is hazelnutty! I love hazelnut and this tea has no lack of that flavor here, but it still lets the black tea flavor through. Good for when you want to feel like a coffee drinker…

drank Artichoke Green by Adagio Teas
72 tasting notes

What in interesting tea. I smelled the leaves and was turned off by the strong artichoke scent, even though I like artichokes. After steeping, the artichoke scent was much less pronounced, but I couldn’t really smell the green tea. After cooling down a bit, the tea mellowed out, but I’m still not tasting much green here. Too much artichoke.

Not a bad tea, but to me the artichoke was a bit overwhelming.

I know what you’re talking about. My favorite is their white cucumber (which they make sound like it’s a new release, but it’s not), and the smell of the raw leaf is pretty horrible lol. If you want to rehome your artichoke, I’ll take it:)

drank Earl Grey Bravo by Adagio Teas

I’ve been a life-long Earl Grey fan, and this is probably the best Earl Grey I’ve ever had. Lots of bergamot, and the pieces of orange peel and the tiny blue-purple flowers make it a pretty steep, too.
