This is an absolutely exquisite, wonderfully beautiful tea. I fell in love with it as soon as I opened the box and the scent wafted out, distinguishing itself from it’s box-mates, intoxicating my olfactory senses. It’s a breezy tea with a refreshing breath of mint,a whirlwind of delightful chamomile, and a flutter of the rooibos flavors.
OMG! I did not expect to like this as much as I do! YUMMMMM! This is my first time with an herbal and man is this a winner!!! It smells so delicious and honey-like and really gives me a nice sense of calm. Great stress buster tea for sure! What can I say? I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this tea!!
WOW! Holy Cinnamon smell! This tea smells just like those red disc candies that I used to like. I got this as a sample thank God, cuz Im not too impressed with it. I mixed it with some of my Cream tea sample from Adagio as well to try and tone it down a bit. I topped it off with reddi whip cuz it just seemed appropriate on these flavor teas. Verdict is out whether I will have this again mixed with perhaps a few other flavors. Its not so much like the spice of cinnamon rather it has that candied flavor pretty well matched. It tastes a bit artificial to me but maybe all of my new lil samples of flavors will..I don’t know yet but I’m thinking so. Just glad theyre small samples!! Definitely would not order this tea again. :(
Oh boy oh boy oh boy!!!
(No, not for this tea…though it’s pretty good! This excitement is due to my Adagio order arriving today. It’s my first go-around with them (re: teanewbie), and so I decided to order a whole slew of samplers to start familiarizing myself with tea types I’ve never had before…and I’m going to work through them all. This is the first one. Whee!)
I like this. What I like most about it is that it lacks any bitterness whatsoever, which surprises me, because it seems as though it should have some. I can vouch for the mouth-dryness mentioned in some other tasting notes, though it’s not parching or intolerable.
The smell of the tea as it was brewing was wonderful, but maybe some of the wonderfulness is due in small part to memories out of my childhood. I spent a lot of time with horses (as a lot of little girls seem to) and the smell reminds me a little bit of the scent of hot bales of alfalfa hay in the sunshine…a sort of earthy hay sweetness and warmth that I have no analogue for. If I had to make another comparison, I might say raisins, but not sharply sweet raisins…more like the aftertaste of raisins.
I got a little bit distracted during the second steeping and I’m not sure how long the leaves were in the hot water, but I know the temp was down to 208 instead of 215 when I poured it in. The flavor is more black-tea this time, weaker but still tasty. I’m looking forward to steep #3, but I suspect I’ll be done with it after that.
I’m still fussing with my ratings…I’ve rated so few teas that it’s hard to know where to place this little marker. Stuff is subject to change for a while…
I must say, I love silver needle tea, but adagio’s silver needle was somewhat of a disappointment. First it was almost old looking (the leaves), the color was ok in the tea the taste was very bland, your artichoke notes, toasted grain. there was not very much after steeping once. One steeping was all I got. score 85
From the aroma of the leaves I did not think I would like this much, but I decided to try it anyway. (Hot, no milk, no sugar). The smell of the tea is strange, it smells very strongly of coconuts, but the flavor is mild. It tastes like coconuts, but it is not overpowering flavor like you think it would be based on the smell.
There is an aftertaste, it is sweet. I cannot identify what it is, but I like it. I’ll update more after I finish the pot.
So this tea, like all teas, got cold after a little while, and the taste of coconut became stronger and the aftertaste was more prevalent. I did not like this, but I did enjoy it hot. Worth a try.
Mmmmmm…niiiiice. This tea is hitting the spot! Its very visually appealing when u first put it in cup- it is like lil friggin monkey claws! Too cute! The taste is very smooth, with a nice malty touch and a hint of chocolate notes for sure. Its very satisfying and filling while I snuggle here in my sweats on a cold day . Yes I did actually get to the gym earlier but that was hours ago and now I’m satisfying my craving for warmth. When I was working out I was trying to distract myself from the pain by thinking of the blueberry white tea I would have iced when we got home..well, that never happened and I’m now chilled enough that iced anything makes me shiver. I suppose I could turn the heat up but I kinda like the briskness in the house- keeps me going. That and keeps me wanting more and more tea and thats never a bad thing!!
This one my daughter and I loved. It is like having a granny apple on a warm summers day. When opening the container to pouring in the cup. The aroma filled the kitchen of apples. I was blown away on the size of apple pieces that was in the tea. Yes, my first time having loose tea.
The liquors sent and color was pleasing to me. I tossed it around a little as if to taste wine. Seeing its hue clasp within its self and relieving more of its bountiful notes. It taste like a warm cup of apple juice, but with out the sweetness. It held the a bit bitterness that green apple hold within its savoring juices.
It makes me picture the orchards of yesterday. Making homemade applesauce with Mom. Just slipping away into memories of before.
