Hit this with Citron Sonata and natural Honey….Honey rules
29 Tasting Notes
Had this in a sampler a LONG time ago and it cured my Dad’s cold. So, hey, I thought that was pretty good. I recently picked up some Moroccan Mint from Teavana and it lacked the bite and zest of this tea. So, I upgraded to the bag and it was a tremendously crisp and refreshing mint with little to know aftertaste. Great for the afternoon or post-meal.
new shipment in this rainy, dreary morning and I’m still stuffed from Mother’s Day brisket. As such, I was going to bypass lunch and get a cup of tea. Been wanting to try some new flavors and peach was one of them. This is EXCELLENT. It has a soft first reaction, then, after you take it in the peach tartness really kicks in. It’s a nice little flava adventure I’ll be taking. Plus, I forgot it was raining.
Smells like Christmas, tastes like the 4th of July
My new way to go in the afternoon…Body + Mind base and add in some rooibos for flavor
Went crazy today…bought some organic honey at the Des Moines Farmer’s Market this weekend and added it to my steep for the first time every. I like the juxtaposition of the strong, semi-bitter black with the intense sugar of the honey
Tart, but, added to Citron Sonata and it’s really a refresher! I think with this tea you might need to add it to more based teas without so much flavor like a straight green or white
Mixed with Strawberry by Adagio…best little sample you could get to mix with any green or white tea. I love Body + Mind as a “go to” but miss my Golden Jade and I’m planning a trip to get some today…as well as Youthberry per BHill’s raving
When I mix in the Strawberry, I usually add 1 minute of steep time to this tea and it still doesn’t hurt the flavor or body
Wish I was more impressed, but, find this flavor to be bit of a dud. Soft to the tounge, yes, but I like my Chai with that “bite”
I went a little wild…Mango by Adagio + Citron Sonata by Teavana with a GM base
Enjoying this mixed with some Citron Sonata…needed some girth (questionable word choice) to start out a rainy Monday
Who would have thought that mixing this with Ti Kuan Yin would be the perfect complement to the 2nd round of the NFL draft…steeped 2 times and both perfect. Hard to mess up Ti Kuan Yin, really….perfect base for ANYTHING
Mixed in some Body & Mind from Teavana and it’s getting me through to the weekend on a rainy day…pick me up indeed
Got the flavored tea sampler from Adagio and use these as little “enhancers” in many of my green teas. I put a 1/2 teaspoon of this in with my Body + Mind by Teavana (2tsp to 16 oz) and it REALLY added a sweet zest to an otherwise light tasting tea, but, didn’t overpower it
This one is INTERESTING…in a very stellar way.
Has a soft, gentle taste (sound like a romance novel) but there is a definate fruity scent and a little hint of maybe pear or something along that line.
It’s actually a mix of green and white…really invigorating. Had it before and during a meeting in the afternoon and it had me zinging.
Plus, the leaves expand tremendously during steeping…got 2 good 16 oz glasses out of 3 teaspoons.

Tried this yesterday after loving the white peach sample I got from another company. Not enough peach for me in the flavor.
WOW…in my early tasting days, this is hands down the BEST I’ve had.
The smell is incredible, like a fresh fruit display on the street…the taste isn’t too citrus but gives enough flavor to make you completely forget it’s a green. Yet, you totally get that wonderful, wholesome feeling that green gives you.
I can see why if you started with this, as several I know did, you’d be hooked on tea.
I love it when a FREE sample rocks. The smell it melt your face, even with the small little bag I opened up. But, you can taste all the good parts of it right away…sweet, not bitter lemon…surrounded by the slight taste of ginger (which I know well from my love of Moscow Mules). This sample will likely turn into an order.
Upon first look, I thought it was a green tea. Then, add water and the leaves turn a dark, rich black. It has a smell that reminds me of bailing hay as a kid, but, that is a good thing in this case. Strong, bold taste that is somehow unique, but, takes in all the familar things you love about other black tea. Right on.
I’m finding that the numerous black leaf teas I got in a sampler from Adagio work better as a “flavor enhancer” then a straight up tea. That said, this combined with Golden Jade (http://steepster.com/teas/teavana/6975-golden-jade) is really fantastic. Steeped it for a bit longer and the blueberry has just a hint of the more bitter, dark taste instead of the super sugar you’d get from, let’s say, a blueberry juice
Somewhat surprised…as I did NOT like Dragonwell. Much more grassy then the green tea I normally enjoy, but, it steers clear from overpowering my senses which is a big key for me.
What I started on and what I keep going back to again and again.
The smell reminds me of moss and mushroom, with a light sweet taste.
Not overpowering, but, hits me just like I imagined all the fuss was about before I started my tea trek.
