So I’ve tried this one hot, cold brewed and now as an iced tea. Of the three methods this tea taste best iced. Most of the bite at the end of the sip is gone, and the bit of bitterness that remains is not entirely unpleasant. I did add an ample amount of simple syrup to my glass which heightens the lemon flavor, but that flavor is definitely artificial. It’s alright, but I won’t order it again. I’ll be happier making iced tea from a high quality Ceylon and adding lemon slices.

I did bump my rating up a few points because this is much, much better iced than hot.

So I’m still craving that lemon flavor and found this sad little sipdown in a box. I didn’t know I still had any left. I accidentally steeped this too long so it may be really bitter. Not too bad actually!
This tea is predominantly black tea with hints of crystallized, sugary lemon bits. It is pretty good and always gives a kick of caffeine. I’m always surprised that I like this one so much, but it really is one of Adagio’s better flavored teas.
And speaking of Adagio, I wasn’t supposed to get my next box until tomorrow, but I just saw that it is out for delivery today! I’m actually really excited that I’ll have something to look forward to tonight. My husband is going to be out and so I’ll need this little push to get me through my essay.
edit blah. As this cooled the bitterness seemed to come to play. The last sip of this was pretty bad. I have to say, the black base on some of their teas are very finicky and sometimes not worth the risk. I love the flavors when they are steeped correctly, but can be a terrible mishap as well.

Managed to make it not bitter, but I am not getting ANY lemon from this tea. Maybe I will add lemon juice and create my own lemon flavor ;) I am thinking ALL these Adagio black teas I have will make for good iced teas this summer…..

Trying to get through my adagio samples.
So in my previous note I was all like, this is so lemony! But this time around, it didn’t seem that lemony at all. It was kind of bland. I think having all those wonderful extremely flavored teas from Art of Tea and Golden Moon has spoiled me. Or maybe I’m just not that into lemon. It does give that kind of ick back of the throat scratchy feeling. And the leaves still have that weird over chemically too much lemon smell. I wonder if this tea has a really short shelf life or something? Not a good quality for a tea in the cupboard of a compulsive sample buyer like me.

Down goes the rating!

A great tasting tea with a nice zesty lemon flavor. very pleased with my first pot.

When I first smelt the leaves it had a semi floral smell. Once steeped it a much more of the lemon zest smell. This is a keeper and the kids loved it too.

This is a decent black tea with a sliiiiight hint of lemon in it. Sort of like those generic unsweetened black iced tes you can get at restaurants and someone dropped a tiny lemon wedge in. It’s not bad, buf for something that claims to really have a lot of lemon, this just isn’t living up to that promise.

So does anyone have any recs for a really, truly lemony tea? Doesn’t have to be black, I drink all kinds…

Seems like the marigold petals keep this from being overly bitter or astringent. Based upon my experiences with other adagio black teas, I opted to steep this a shorter period of time than other teas and the results were alright. I will definitely be playing around with this blend more in the future.

The last time I had this tea, it was wintertime but near 40 degrees (Fahrenheit), which is generally considered “balmy” for most northerners. Except it was a soggy and sleety 40 degrees, which somehow changes entirely how 40 degrees actually feels. It tends to seep in through sweaters and jackets and make your body feel heavy and your bones hurt even though it’s not really that cold. Then your body starts to tell you that you need to crawl back in to bed and cozy up next your significant other’s warm, napping body and doze off. Except, I hate sleeping. Truthfully I do because it’s so time consuming. (Does this make me weird?) So, I did the next best thing, which was root around in the box of Adagio Tea that had just been delivered to my apartment for something that would fill me with warmth. I settled on Lemon Soleil tea because all I could think about was how badly I wanted sunshine on such a drizzly day.

Lemon Soleil leavesLemon Soleil is a blend of ceylon black tea, natural lemon flavoring, and marigold leaves.

I put the kettle on, and I let it whistle at me let me to know it was done. Then, I poured the water over just a skosh more than a teaspoon of tea leaves. I let it steep for three minutes, and I somehow brewed a perfect cup of tea on the first try. Ceylon tea, which tends to be citrusy compared to other types of black tea, pairs well with the lemon flavoring; it was medium-bodied, bright on my tongue, and felt refreshing. I also added a few drizzles of wildflower honey for a subtle sweetness. True to its name, Lemon Soleil is the kind of tea that makes a cold day feel like a sunny and balmy spring day, and it just made me feel so, so happy.

I prefer this cold steeped. It is strongly lemon, to the point of being a hair pine-sol ish, but not so much that it is undrinkable. Overall, I’d say it is not remarkable in any way, positive or negative.
