This tea tastes very much like warm black olive brine minus the vinegar or astringent qualities the brine normally has. It’s very earthy, dark, savory/salty and just so much like olives that I can’t enjoy it.

Rich and bold without being over powering. The musty tobacco notes are at the forefront but it also has a strong sweetness that I’m not sure I really like simply because it finishes much sweeter than I would like. I wouldn’t buy this tea.

Deliciously addicting green tea that’s sweet and grassy. The taste was vegetal and sweet to the point of being very similar to a matcha. Strong clean flavor.

I loved this tea. It was sweet and roasted like a brown sugar almond cookie with none of the “tininess” that I find most oolongs to have.

This tea was earthy, malty, and had hints of honey sweetness. Its a very light and smooth black tea. A little sweet for my liking as I prefer the bold/sharp black teas a bit more.

I thought I loved this at first but the more I drank it the less fond of it I became. The main flavors are coconut and cinnamon which are GREAT but then there’s this powdery strange flavor that comes afterwards. I think it might be really poor quality roobios? I can’t tell. Add to that the fact that a mesh strainer fine enough to contain all the flecks of tea is not currently in existence and you’ve watched my reorder fly out the window. Half of this tea will end up falling through your strainer and in to the cup – guaranteed.

This would be so good without the hibiscus! It smells and brews up like delicious cinnamon apple crumble but the addition of hibiscus adds a strong tartness that I’m simply not a fan of. It ends up making the tea taste soured or bad. Also, mine has a strange chemical twinge to it. Not sure if it’s simply gotten old or if the flavors aren’t jiving well.

Average as average gets. I felt like this tea fell really flat. It tastes like a boring, semi-sweet black tea. I wish I could add more than that to the flavor profile but really it was just kind of a bland black tea.

drank Valentines by Adagio Teas

This tea is SWEET. The flavor is mostly chocolate with a berry twist and tiny bit of floral tossed in. It’s a great dessert tea but the intense sweetness keeps it from being stocked regularly for me. Helps me kill my chocolate cravings so I keep coming back to it.

This tastes like the naturally sweet black tea Lipton only dreams it would be. I find myself recommending this most to drinkers who are not fond or familiar with black teas. It’s very non-offensive and easy to enjoy. That being said, I think it lacks a lot of the body and depth of flavor that other black teas bring to the table. It’s a great any time tea.

I love all tea. I dig David’s crazy candy teas and I adore Verdant’s pure teas. I prefer loose but you’ll find bagged tea in my cuppard as well. Prefer Blacks, greens and oolongs. Tea, for me, is like pizza – even when it’s shitty it’s still good. (Except for when it has hibiscus in it. Hibiscus is the bane of my cuppa).
