drank Cozy Candy Cane by Adagio Teas

These Tinsel Teas aren’t ending up very flavorful for me. I don’t even taste mint. I just taste generic, light flavoring on black tea with no real character. It tastes like almost nothing. These samples are from a tea box, and they were stored in regular Ziploc bags for an unknown amount of time, so perhaps they were once more strongly flavored.

This is similar to Harney’s hot cinnamon spice, but much milder. Spicy cinnamon is the primary flavor. It doesn’t need milk. It’s all spicy cinnamon, which is pleasant hot, but not at all special. The flavors could be stronger and more interesting.

drank Kentucky Bourbon by Adagio Teas
2473 tasting notes

Michelle, this one is fun! My menfolk deigned to sniff and sample my first steep of your Kentucky Bourbon sample. My son’s evaluation was the most creative: “It’s like cowboy hot chocolate cooked over an open fire.” (I get that!) As for me, I am getting oak, smoke, burnt sugar and the cocoa as well. Really creative and judicious use of lapsang without over-smoking it. The weather has taken an untimely warm swing, but this would be a prime selection for a cloudy, frosty afternoon.

drank Blackberry by Adagio Teas
1257 tasting notes

I feel like I could tell that this flavoring was blackberry pretty well. It could have been stronger or more tart, but it was identifiable and not fake. The tea itself was a little weak, and the whole thing was a little mild for me, but it was an okay cup. The other reviews for this one are pretty brutal.

drank Chestnuts Roasting by Adagio Teas
1257 tasting notes

Whoops, I should have looked up the ingredients before selecting this tea. This one is lapsang, which I never really enjoy. It’s milder than most, so I actually do think it’s okay. I like it more as it cools. I definitely taste the lapsang, but milk dulls it a little, and the flavoring all goes together pretty well. It’s a mild blend that’s sort of desserty. I wouldn’t really have guessed chestnuts, but I suppose it’s a little nutty in general.

drank Decaf Spice by Adagio Teas

I was looking for a decaf version of Constant Comment, and here it is. Perfect for winter evenings that I don’t want to turn into long hours of insomnia.

Flavors: Clove

drank White Monkey by Adagio Teas
141 tasting notes

Temperamental, but good. This tea likes around the 170F range and not to be brewed too far past 2 minutes or it gets astringent. Mostly consisted of savory green veggies flavor, and almost hints of edamame. A good green tea if you don’t want the fruity or grassy flavor. Just mind your temp and steep time.

Flavors: Savory, Vegetal

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Assam Harmony by Adagio Teas
141 tasting notes

This does taste different from Assam melody. It has a stronger tanning taste with a grainy flavor; good grainy though. I think I like Assam Melody more though: its sweeter, maltier flavor, and is less tannic. HOWEVER, this tea did hold up excellent with milk and sweetener; I increased the leaf from 3g to 4g. It isn’t as intense as a CTC assam for milk tea, but still held it’s flavor. Overall it would be good from someone who prefers more tannic assam and likes to add milk and sugar.

Flavors: Grain, Malt, Tannic

drank Peppermint by Adagio Teas

Very nice peppermint tea. Smooth with absolute no bitterness. Nice cooling, almost sweet taste, with that classic “pepperyness”. Going to use this more in some blends.

drank Foxtrot by Adagio Teas
141 tasting notes

This is basically a sleepy time tea. But unlike a lot of sleepy time teas, this doesn’t taste bitter or herbally. Rooibos is just a base to fill in wit the chamomile and peppermint. The vanilla really helps smooth out the herbal flavors and adds a bit a sweetness. Tasted good with and without sugar.

Flavors: Chamomile, Peppermint, Sweat, Vanilla

drank Chamomile by Adagio Teas
141 tasting notes

WORK THROUGH ALL THE BACK LOG TEA! This was a nice chamomile. Pretty flavorful and smooth. The flowers are mostly whole, and have that soft almost creamy floral taste. Maybe even a fight hints of crisp apple; very faint though. Overall nice smooth tea that doesn’t really even need sweetener.

Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Sweet

drank Yunnan Noir by Adagio Teas

Lovely black tea. Brewed 2 grams tea in 8 oz water, 212F, 3 minutes. Bit of stevia and a slice fresh lemon added. Tea unfurls beautifully while steeping. Multiple steeps easily. Malty, slightly fruity taste with just a hint of spice. Love it!

2021 Sipdown 92/365!

Not sure where I got this from, perhaps Sil or VariaTea? It was a decent cuppa, but I wasn’t a fan of it being in a teabag – it was more broken up than I’d prefer. It was pretty much what you’d expect for a bagged loose leaf straight tea from a flavoured tea company – ok but I know there’s much better out there.

drank Rooibos Nutcracker by Adagio Teas
2473 tasting notes

What a nice surprise! I pulled this sample from the Bits-N-Pieces bin for a change of pace this evening, expecting a little bit of muddiness from the hazelnut/rooibos combo. Not a bit of it! The apple pieces and cornflower add the perfect balance of fruit and brightness. Reminds me just a little of my mom’s fresh apple cake with raisins, minus the spice. Nostalgia always makes tea taste better.

I didn’t expect to love this, but actually, it’s quite tasty! The rose isn’t too heavy. The green tea is mild and pleasant. It’s fruity and super refreshing cold. It’s fun to see lychee in a tea, and this one is done pretty well. I would never have ordered this, but I’m glad I grabbed a sample from the last TTB!

A decent mild flavored tea. Flavoring is not overpowering, but nothing I would drink everyday. Would buy sample size again on sale.

Good but not an everyday tea for me. Would consider buying in sample size only, not full size (unless $$)

A while ago if you shared an Adagio post on FB you got a free pouch of tea. I got this one and grapefruit oolong from doing that.

This one is definitely much stronger in terms of flavor than Republic Of Tea’s Blackberry Sage tea. I can taste the sage here and it’s really nice. The blackberry flavor is distracting and kind of takes over though. One of the other tea reviews describes it as chalky and I would have to agree. I wish it was a more natural blackberry flavor or candy-like but not chalky. It’s still a pleasant cup of tea. I’d never guess that this was an oolong if I didn’t already know.

Flavors: Artificial, Berry, Blackberry, Chalk, Sage

I have that chalky issue often with blackberry and mixed berry flavorings. :(
