This is great for multiple steeps and has a subtle grapefruit flavor that’s just right. As far as flavored teas go, this one is near perfect.

One more sample gone now – yay!

But that’s pretty much the only good thing about this tea. It tastes flat and like it’s the water used to boil some edamame or something. Maybe it is because this was stored in a plastic bag (yes, I know, shame on me) or because it is pretty old (I’ve ignored it for a couple of months and I don’t think it was all that fresh when I got it). But whatever it is, this isn’t enjoyable to me.

I’ll probably finish this cup because it isn’t awful or anything, but I don’t think I’ll try a second steep. Ever.

From the description it almost sounds like it might be better iced, what say you?

Auggy

One would hope but if a tea isn’t good hot, I don’t keep it around. Plus, I don’t think the taste of edamame water would be much better cold.

Jillian

You’ve got a point, eww.

Auggy

I let the second half of the cup cool to around room temp. I could actually taste a little bit of sweet at the very beginning of the sip then but then it went back to full on edamame water.

I poured it out. Ah well!

how do you get the samplers of the Blends? I have only seen the 4oz $10 ones

Auggy

I participated in the Signature Blend box pass that was going on on the Adagio boards. So I got lots of samples of lots of blends!

This hit me just right today. The natural sweetness, the hint of tannin… just right!

I don’t really notice any crab…

Anyway, I think this is a very well-balanced tea. A hint of sweetness, a few vegetal notes, a medium body… just right!

I drank this. I literally had no reaction to it, positive or negative. Hence, the smack-dab-in-the-middle rating of 50.

Subsequent steeps are more vegetal, but maintain the floral notes. I’m on number 4 now.

I don’t drink as much oolong as I would like, because I feel as if I really ought to savor it. And usually I don’t have a lot of time for savoring. This tea is amazing. It has wonderful tropical & floral notes. I even oversteeped it (ha not unusual) but it is fabulous. A little strong, maybe, but very good. And I love how my teapot looks like a kelp forest when I’m brewing it. From prior experience I will say that steeps 2 and 3 will be the best… assuming I don’t forget about it and leave it for 30 minutes. Ahem.

drank Pumpkin Spice by Adagio Teas
80 tasting notes

Oh pumpkin spice. Well I will give you this. If you were just called spice tea I wouldn’t have to rate you so poorly. Because lightly spicy you are. But pumpkin? Where is the pumpkin? I’m afraid of steeping it for much longer and making it bitter. There is just the faintest pumpkin note. Enough to let me know what I’m missing.

I will not give up so easily and I’ll experiment with milk and sugar but I’m disappointed for now.

I like this tea. It’s really smooth. The flavor is very mellow and not overpowering. It makes for a nice tea-drinking experience.

I prefered it best when cooled off a little, but not quite room temperature (I finished it before it got to that point _).

Looking for a warming cup to start my day. With milk and sweetner. Good! Not overpowering.

I just received this from Adagio yesterday. Think I’ll keep it around as a staple flavored Black Tea.

Never thought about adding milk to a fruit tea, but it sounds tasty.

Another Steepster called this a peppery tea, and I’m going to borrow that description. It was good, and (yes) peppery.
