More ginger forward than peach. Definitely powdered ginger flavor versus fresh ginger. I am going to try blending with White Peach to boost the peach flavor. As is, I think it’s better for nursing a cold or congestion than a casual sipping tea.
Flavors: Ginger, Peach
Macho maraschino! For an instant lift, open the bag and inhale deeply :-) It’s a cherry-lover’s dream with the fresh cherry and maraschino notes. I taste more maraschino than fresh cherry. It’s very tasty.
Usually Adagio Teas have an unbelievable aroma when you open the bag. This tea has a weird fermented smell. I guess I taste pineapple, but it’s not a fresh, juicy pineapple flavor. The coconut is non-existent. There is something reminiscent of canned peaches.
One of my favorite blends is this with Adagio’s Caramel.The result is an obviously more creamy flavor and for me, less maple. As I drink it by itself, I like it more with each sip. I think it would pair nicely with a rich dessert, but it would never be a dessert replacement like Adagio’s Caramel and Almond Oolong.
Flavors: Cream, Creamy, Sweet
Amazing! David’s Tea nailed it! Sure it’s February, but with a wind chill advisory, I thought this would be an appropriate choice today. This really does capture the flavor of eggnog including subtle spice notes.
Flavors: Cream, Eggnog, Nutmeg, Sweet, Vanilla
I can’t drink this tea without milk. My tastebuds really protest cornflowers. I didn’t realize this had cornflowers when I purchased it. With that said, this is nice with some added milk because the milk masks the cornflower flavor. I had really high hopes for this because I love Earl Grey Bravo.
Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Floral, Orange, Vanilla
What I really enjoy about Adagio is that the the aroma of the unbrewed tea really does signal what’s to follow. Open a bag of this tea and what do you get? Marzipan. It makes for a very comforting cup of tea. Bold marzipan flavor and very smooth.
