This is one of my favorite teas, one of the few I always keep stocked! It’s lovely on its own, but what I really love it for is smoothies. Add two bananas, chocolate yogurt, and a heaping scoop of crunchy peanut butter and enough chilled Chocolate Chai to make it smooth, and you have the world’s best to-go breakfast!

Flavors: Cocoa, Fruity
Extremely drying and tongue-curling, but going down the aroma is great, the flavor is delicious and has a good end note of hazelnut on the tongue. It’s not my cup of tea, but it’s still really good. If hazelnut and black are your things…
Flavors: Drying, Hazelnut, Nutty, Smooth
Woody, sweet, with the smoothness of vanilla right towards the end of one’s mouth where one would expect the usual rooibos nibble (not a bite) to happen. It’s not as sweet as the regular rooibos or the honeybush tea. It’s not a tongue-curler. it’s still somewhat of a dry drink. The vanilla flavor doesn’t seem like the same vanilla in the vanilla green, but if it is, it’s behaving differently due to the different tea base.
I do want to like this, and I probably do like this more than a regular rooibos. Thing is- I’m worrying if my taste is changing away from rooibos, and that worries me. This tea just doesn’t strike me as fantastic. it hits my ‘meh’ button- but because it’s vanilla I may well like it more if I did a blind taste test with other rooibos teas.
Flavors: Honey, Vanilla, Wood
To be fair, it’s very smooth- and very strong. It’s also very plain- an asset to people who like a huge rush of caffeine in the morning and don’t like flavored tea. Unfortunately, although I thought myself perhaps among the plain black-tea drinkers, I’m apparently not one of them. Who knew?
Smooth, dark, rich, and a little creamy. These are the immediate notes I pick up on in tasting the cup. It’s relatively straightforward; I don’t taste the orange at all. I don’t taste cinnamon either, which I’d have expected since usually cinnamon is noticeable. This is a polite, drying cup and doesn’t taste like a gingerbread man. However, what it is is definitely quiet, refined, and enjoyable. I like this, as it’s not “meh”, but it’s good. :)
Flavors: Creamy, Custard, Dark Bittersweet, Dark Wood, Ginger, Smooth
I’m always a little nervous about orange flavored teas, though I’m not sure why as I haven’t had too many bad experiences with them. But once I got over my suspicions and brewed a cup of this, I was pleasantly surprised. I sweeten almost all of my teas, and a little sugar went a long way in this cup to bring about memories of Christmas with my grandmother when she would buy everyone one of those chocolate oranges that you smash against the tabletop to break the segments apart.
I may have to review this tea again, but my first brewing – what is this? Raisin water? It’s almost flavorless but when I opened the tin, it had a heady, delicious mid-floral spicy nose to it. The only flavor I’m picking up on is a slight raisin taste and that’s it.. :/
I had big plans to drink super awesome tea all day on my birthday. At the beginning of the week, much to my concern, I started feeling the telling feeling of sickness coming on. Tried to fight it off all week and failed, so today has been mostly large mugs of fragrant tisanes and decided to do this instead of any of my higher end teas. Was just able to taste the fruity, chocolatey notes in this. So I’ll have to make do with it until I’m all cleared up!
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Fruity
I’ts the first time i taste Pouchong and it’s definitely a style i must explore.
Wet leaves had me worried; smelling a bit like greens cooked on an open fire. But that smoky note does not carry over to the tea.
At first, it’s a delicate and sweet infusions. It re-steeps with more body to a milky and floral cup. Light yet complex enough to keep you intrigued, the mouthfeel moves from mineral to chalky to powdery in the most enchanting way.
I would recommend slightly longer steeping times.
This honestly tastes to me like a more traditional pumpkin spice than the pumpkin spice tea adagio offers. O.o The flavor is smooth, gentle, light without being bland, and the spice is comfortingly warm and a hint peppery. It’s a very pleasant and well-behaved chai which isn’t in your face- great for warming up while winding down your evening. I love it!
Flavors: Cardamon, Creamy, Ginger, Lemon, Lemongrass, Pepper, Peppercorn, Pumpkin, Smooth, Spicy
I love orange-chocolate things, but this… this does not work. Super pungent aroma. The aftertaste is wonderful – a few moments after swallowing the chocolate comes through and really mellows everything out – but the beginning is SUCH a punch to the palate, just full-on CITRUS and also EARTH and they do not mix together well. I’ll steep it less next time to see if I can improve it.
Flavors: Bitter, Citrus, Earth, Orange

The nose on this tea is just incredible, and it really delivers. I have to admit- I’m finding with the fruit chunks herbal teas vs the black teas that I like the flavor of the fruity chunks herbal teas better, but both the strawberry black and blueberry black have the zing, and that’s where they really shine. The blueberry is no exception; it’s tangy, flavorful, and very delicious. It’s our second sample and it’s already almost gone- that says something. :) So definitely pick up this great flavor if you like flavored black teas.
Flavors: Blueberry, Fruity
Good enough to warrant deciding that my initial love-hate affair is over with it. I have to admit I like this stuff every so often. I hate bergamot, but it plays nicely in this creamy, moody tea. It’s not a grab-and-chug tea (not for lack of trying). It’s sort of like having an audience with the Queen- you don’t just go up, say hey how’s it going, I like you (or not) and then walk away. This one commands respect and packs the rich flavor to go with it. So go have this audience with this softly-commanding, slightly romantic, delicious strange creature. It’s worth it!
Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Creamy, Earl Grey, Floral, Smooth
As with the Vanilla Green, the Genmai Cha tea has been a very welcome companion! No longer do we have to go to the nearby ($$$) restaurant to get this tea. We found it here on Adagio and fell in love. The tea is warm, nostalgic, with the great green tea flavor we love and appreciate- sometimes smooth, sometimes a little rough. The rice flavor is a wonderful complement and we are on our next big bag of it. <3 A very loved tea- definitely try it!
Flavors: Drying, Green, Rice, Roasted, Smooth
Very sweet, tangy and citrusy- just what it promises! The nose smells wonderful and rich, and very fresh. The tea turns out a beautiful shade of ruby and is very impressive- I’d recommend a glass teacup to show it off garnished with an orange wedge or something for decoration. It’s not my flavor but my fiance loves it!
Flavors: Citrus, Citrus Fruits, Citrus Zest, Citrusy, Drying, Tangy, Tart
Tastes like the Earl Grey Moonlight but with the heady floral notes that only lavender can provide so strongly. It’s hard to get my senses around since I’m really not that much a lavender person (though I do love lavender cookies when they’re available). It’s uplifting, creamy, sweet, moody but flavorful and the bergamot (which I usually detest) behaves.
Flavors: Cream, Creamy, Earl Grey, Flowers, Lavender, Smooth
