This is still too sweet for me and tastes too much like gum. Where is the black tea? I can’t even taste it.

Left a bitter taste on my tongue so that all sips afterward (even with milk and sugar) tasted strange. Very astringent and not as good as Twinings. Can’t even imagine drinking this unadulerated.

drank Cream by Adagio Teas

This tea is amazing. The cream flavor is well matched with the Ceylon. Although this tea is not sweet, it has an impression of sweetness (uh…) and it is so comforting with milk and sugar. I’m impressed by how it’s not overpowered by the milk and sweetener, and how well the tea and cream flavor comes through. I think I’m going to have to steal this from my Mom!

I think this tastes like frosting as is, I can’t imagine how sweet it must taste w/ milk and sweetener:) This makes a great base to add chai spices to!

Stolen tea is the best kind of tea.

Cofftea: With milk and sugar it’s almost like cream soda, but in a good way! :)

takgoti: For sure! I used Christmas as an excuse to buy my Mom the teas I have been dying to taste, muahahahaha…

drank White Blueberry by Adagio Teas

This is an excellent white tea. The blueberry flavor is light—fruity, but not sickeningly sweet.

drank Decaf Mango by Adagio Teas

The mango flavor was really prominent in the tea. This tea was about as bitter as most teas are, but I’m very sensitive to bitterness, so I didn’t finish this cup. (AKA, I think most people would like this tea, and I just prepared it badly.) I think 30 seconds less brew time might work better next time.

Mixed this 50-50 with Cream black tea from Adagio. Tasted like strawberries and cream, or maybe peaches and cream—but definitely delicious!

drank Raspberry Patch by Adagio Teas

Yum! This is strong (well, just right) if you brew it for 7 minutes, so if you want a lighter taste I would go for 5 minutes. It is tart, and I couldn’t detect any sweetness (although it was quite hot at the time so that could have affected my ability to taste it). I added a packet of Splenda and it was like kool aid for grown ups! I think it’s much better cooled, and will try it sans sweetener and chilled next time.

Just bought the bagged version of this (on accident), but steeped it in my Zarafina. The first few sips taste like a stick of Big Red gum dissolved in hot water…yuck. It is, however, quite sweet without sweetener (woo!). The tea flavor comes out a little more as it cools, but it’s still very, very faint. I put the teabag back into cup, and it became a bit stronger…but it still tastes like very sweet gum. It’s almost too sweet (never thought I’d say that…I’m a “I like my sugar with coffee and cream” kind of gal). I’m not digging this. Next time maybe I’ll throw in some black tea with it.

drank Sweet Dreams by Bigelow

This is pretty tasty, but not quite what I was looking for. The chamomile and mint are relaxing and smooth, and the hibiscus adds a tangy note. I personally am not keen for the sourness right before bed. I will be looking for a better loose blend without the sour notes.
