drank April in Paris by Adagio Teas
3285 tasting notes

Yesterday I received two amazing boxes of tea in the mail from our Nichole. Thank you so much!

I am shocked that this tea wasn’t already in the database because I think it is the best tea from Adagio that I have ever had.

The aroma of the dry leaves is fruity and the bergamot and pomegranate are so balanced that you don’t get a snootful of bergamot sharpness but rather a bright and exciting fruity scent.

The steeped tea is rich and the caramel and vanilla come through more here than in the dry leaf aroma.

This isn’t an exact rehash of the popular Paris by Harney and Sons. Instead of blackcurrant we have pomegranate and the bergamot is lighter in this to me.

It is delightful and deserves a place on shelf for breakfasts as well as solitary sipping cups sans food. Would definitely purchase this.

Pomegranate sounds interesting, I’ll have to remember to try a sample of this one next time. It’s interesting that they obviously copied Paris, down to the black and oolong base, but then swapped blackcurrant for pomegranate.

Indeed, I noted the tea base being the same. It is just different enough that I wouldn’t mind owning both! If I had more I would gladly send it to you to try, but this was a sample pack.

Oh no worries ha ha! I plan to order some teas from them for fall so I’ll hopefully remember to pick up a sample then. :)

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about fourteen years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
