From Adagio Teas

The gemstone Tiger Eye is described as being chatoyant – having a shimmery light reflecting quality with “undulating, contrasting bands of color and luster.” Our tiger eye blend will do the same for your palate with rich notes of chocolate and caramel. Enjoy it in lieu of or with your favorite indulgence.

The tiger eye is a sought-after gemstone for its weight that calms the body when worn as a necklace or bracelet. No wonder the Egyptians believed it brought protection and luck and that Roman soldiers thought it helped maintain bravery during battles. Both ancient and modern Chinese attribute a golden aura to the stone that brings good luck, and it is a popular stone in mala prayer beads. Its chocolate brown with golden strands are a combination of crocidolite and quartz. One sip of our Tiger Eye Tea, with its caramel and chocolate flavor profile, and luck will be yours.

Black Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3 minutes.

It smells like ice cream with ribbons of fudge & caramel running through it, yum!

Plain it is not bad, kind of a a buttery roasty taste. With Stevia added, it is bright, caramelly, light fudge, & kind of a nice dessert-like flavor. It reminds me of something, but I just can’t put my finger on it.

I drank this while I was out on a walk and I had to note that this tastes great in my timolino. I need to remember that!

I enjoy this one too! :)

I got this in a trade from someone but I do not remember who. Sorry! I have a really awful memory. I have the note but can’t seem to match the name up with a screen name so really sorry.

I don’t know what this is except a black tea but I can definitely smell the chocolate and the caramel. Is this flavoured or naturally like this? I don’t know but I like it.

And it smells just like it tastes, when I put in milk and sugar. Wow, this is a nice tea. I boiled the water to boiling but I steeped it lower because it cools off with the pour when I’m using my water heater rather than my breville (wasn’t enough leaf for that), so the usual adagio base tea problems aren’t obvious. It’s always too bitter at boiling from adagio. 195 degrees all the way.

Although I can’t seem to drink it without spilling it on myself, this is an amazing tea. I’m definitely going to try for a second steep out of this because I want more more more.

This sounds incredible!


I’ve been meaning to try this one.


Yes! I love this one! I should buy more, but I always get sucked into the fandom blends. ALWAYS

Terri HarpLady

Yup, I really enjoyed this one, although it hasn’t been in my cupboard for quite some time. Maybe it’s time for an Adagio order…

groan Someone take Sil away, please?

Thank you so much Shadowfall for a sample of this one! I always wanted to try it! ohmygoshitissoossosogood. One teaspoon at just boiled for 3 1/2 minutes. I LURVE these Adagio blends. The tea itself just looks like plain black tea so I’m so shocked the flavor is so strong. It’s like chocolate syrup, hints of caramel, hazelnut (but I’ve tried Adagio’s actual hazelnut tea and that has much more actual hazelnut flavor.) and really just a wonderful strong flavored mix of everything desserty. The black tea is dusky, dark and I just love it. Probably at the top of the chocolate teas list for me. Sadly, the second steep wasn’t as amazing, but the first cup was so good, I don’t mind. Adagio has the teas for me! Apparently, because this is only rated a 66 by Steepsterers. Sad I only have one teaspoon left!

This blend reminds me a great deal of Adagio’s chocolate chip black tea. It’s got a great cocoa flavour that goes well with the slightly bitter Ceylon base Adagio uses. I’m not getting much caramel though which is a bit of a disapointment. I’ll try adding milk or sweetener to see if that’ll bring out the caramel at all.

Sadly this is not an adagio tea for me. I don’t get caramel or chocolate and mostly it’s just kind of blechy. thanks terri for letting me try this. It reminds me of something i can’t place my finger on, but i don’t have much interest in drinking this beyond the cup that’s in front of me at most.

Apparently it’s an Adagio sipping day.

The dry leaf aroma here is very strongly caramel and chocolate. Yum!

Brewed up, it still has a strong cocoa smell, but it’s nearly as sweet or baked yummy as the dry smell.

It took me a little but to nail down what exactly this tasted like, but it’s a caramel mocha with an extra shot of espresso. It’s kind of roasty with just suggestions of caramel, dark chocolate, and a little vanilla.

Not my favorite, but a suitable replacement for a beverage I like that gives me tummy aches.

Thankyou to Will Work for Tea for this sample. Your werwe right, this is right up my alley! And heck, the name is awesome!

I am getting the chocolate and slight caramel notes. But, it is a little bit astringent.

A splash of milk cuts the astringency a little. I will try brewing a little less time next time, maybe that will help.

Thanks to Ninavampi for a large sample of this tea! The dry leaf aroma is strongly caramel and chocolate. Yum! Totally mouthwatering. I tried it first sans additions and it was okay. It’s much more enjoyable with milk and sugar. The sugar brings out the caramel and chocolate flavors more, and the milk cuts the bitterness of the base.

With additions, this is a yummy dessert tea that delivers what it promises. It’s not like eating a Ghirardelli chocolate square, but it’s also way fewer calories than the real thing. This reminds me of 52teas’ Cashew Turtle. It’s not quite as good as that, but it’s pretty close. This is a safe bet if you’re a fan of chocolate/caramel combos. Thanks again, Ninavampi!!

It smells like yummy chocolate and caramel as it steeps…but does it taste like it?

Not really, nearly there, but no. I get hints of chocolate with each sip, but no caramel. I thought this sounded like a yummy mix that would knock my socks off. Sadly it seems to just be “meh”. I might try blending it with some of their cream or hazelnut tea and see what I come up with.
