From Adagio Teas

Lemons and black tea make such a natural pair, so why not try oranges? Our Orange Black tea combines fresh and brisk Ceylon black tea with the flavor of juicy, ripe Florida oranges, playfully accented with orange peel. Zesty orange rind dryness, with hints of soft, sweet orange juice (makes a great balance). Crisp and refreshing cup. Orange and tea, you make quite the pair!

Ingredients: Black Tea, Orange & Natural Orange Flavor

Whee! So many little slides and settings! So fun! Yay upgrades!

Ahem, anyway. This tea just didn’t do it for me today. It wasn’t bad. It was just… there. Maybe a little burnt tasting towards the end? Mostly, I’m just sad that this doesn’t taste orange to me. It’s boring and plain. I want oranges, dangit!!! The most I get out if it, if I try really hard and squint my eyes and turn my head juuuuuust right, I can kind of taste something similar to licking the outside of an orange.

Yeah, that’s not enough orange. The last bit of this tea will be blended into something. It’s too meh on its own for me.

Squinting, turning one’s head, then licking an orange sounds hilarious…but not delicious.

Another “okay” orange tea from Adagio. Again not a huge burst of that orange citrus taste I’m looking for. Not bad at all, just okay. Bought this for a blend anyways and it works a lot better there.

Mild black with none of the orange aroma carrying over into the taste. Maybe if there had been more than two orange pieces in the entire sample…

The tea smells like an orange creamsicle from the tin. Much like the other flavored black teas it has just the right amount of fruit flavor. Love it.

Adagio CommuniTEA – April 13th, 2023

I do like the orange flavor here, it reminds me of those orange slice gummy candies that are coated in sugar. Definitely not a natural orange, but sweet and candylike.

Not a fan of the base tea though, which I think is generally the case with me and Adagio’s flavored black teas. I feel like it has all the negative attributes of a strong, brisk black tea, without having a lot of the flavor. Maybe it would be nicer with some creamer…

I love those candies, but that definitely isn’t what one would expect for something titled just “Orange.”

I love them too! Consequently, I wasn’t bothered by the similar flavor in this tea ha ha…

Not what I was hoping for. There’s some orange here, but there is also an odd aftertaste that I can’t describe and can’t figure out what’s causing it. As the tea cools, the aftertaste is more and more unpleasant.

I’ve been wanting to try out a handful of teas from Adagio in the hopes of coming up with my own custom blend (an orange spice that doesn’t contain clove) but I don’t think this is going to be a workable base for my idea.

meh its not bad at all but also not very orangey either
there is much better orange teas out there at the super market even
it is pretty bold with a hint of citrus but just tastes so much plain I’d rather drink a cheap english breakfast tea instead of this

I’m back.
I’ve been suffering from crippling depression lately, so much so that I went almost a week and only had one cup of tea. Well, a change of scenery (I’m at the parents house again) and I seem to be doing better. So I decided to try something new this morning.
Adagio Orange is another one of it’s black tea fruit blends. The smell in the bag is SUUUPER orange. I know it won’t translate over into taste though, it never does with these.
Brewed western style, boiling water, 3:30 Minutes.
Taste is… well it’s better than I was expecting. I can taste orange in the sip, but it is unfortunately a background note. I really wish it was more prominent, as what I do taste of the orange is sweet, not tart. But mostly it’s just an ok black tea with a hint of orange. It’s sad, the smell in the bag is always so promising with these. Heck, even the brewed cup smells more of orange than it actually tastes. That’s not to say it’s bad. I don’t know if it is because I haven’t really had tea in a week, but I am enjoying it. It’s decent. I probably wouldn’t reorder it though. I’m sure there are better orange blends out there that I just haven’t found yet.

Tea made an major inroad into my life when I was going through some hefty depression. Looking back, I think it was a healthy activity to dive into when feeling like I had a lack of control in my life.

Hang in there Shanie. You got this. Glad you have some family to turn to. I’ll have a cup of tea to you :)

100% have to echo Derk; I first got into tea following a move to a new city at a time where I felt super depressed. I had no direction in my life, new no one in my new town, and was in a highly self destructive place. Tea provided me with something to be excited about, and that engaged me physically as an activity and intellectually through learning about it. In finding Steepster, I was able to become a part of a community and that sort of crossed the final “box” of what I was missing in my life – a connection with people until I was able to meet new people in the city I had moved to and form relationships that way as well.


Family is the best sometimes. I am sure they treasure you as you treasure them.

Thanks guys for the support. I seem to be slowly crawling my way out. This is the second day in a row I’ve slept through the night and woken up in the morning, even though I had a long nap yesterday afternoon. I seem to be doing a bit better overall, and appreciate your kind words. Thanks.

I’ve been going through a bad depression right now too, and have noticed my tea hobby isn’t quite as “involved” as it once was. I think it’s just that typical “lack of energy toward things you normally enjoy” going on, but I’m trying to make an effort. Feel free to send me a message if you want to talk.

I really enjoyed this – I cold steeped it, which allowed the orange to shine and it was so refreshing. I will absolutely be repurchasing.

New to the party for flavored black teas. It’s orangey, but more like supermarket orange juice, than bright citrus peel I would have expected. Not even mellow sweet like california oranges.
