Second sample from Adagio. This one smelled like gummy peach rings when I opened the packet. I honestly miss those so much but haven’t found any without gelatin that taste the same thus far. Once Steeped you can tell that there is peach flavoring used in this tea. I like peach flavoring and it’s quite nice here. Sweet and floral with a bit of a candy peach flavor as well. The oolong pairs nicely with the peach here though the peach is by far the Prominent flavor. As my cup of tea starts to cool the flavors become more muted making the cup less enjoyable. So definitely one best drunk hot before it gets lukewarm.
If I was already placing an order I would probably add a sample of this. Would gladly drink a cup of this again.
Flavors: Candy, Peach, Sweet, Wood
Once I realized that you could pick from a few Adagio teas to order samples of and still get free shipping. I decided to make a small sample order. These are pretty much one cup samples. This is the first tea I decided to try from Adagio.
I’m really enjoying this one it’s very creamy, very milky, not too heavy unlike a lot of oolongs. I often find that most aren’t everyday drinkers for me because of this. This one is still light enough that it could be an everyday cup. There are some floral notes specifically maybe rose or orchid? Very delicate though and not overpowering. Someone else in the tasting notes for this tea mentioned rice pudding. I can kind of get that. Just from the creamy, sweet, milky flavor of this tea. I wouldn’t have made that comparison on my own though. I get the honeysuckle as well. I wouldn’t mind having some more of this in my cupboard actually. Got about three steeps out of this.
Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Honeysuckle, Orchid, Rose, Sweet
A loose leaf sample from Izzy and as well SIPDOWN no. 11. Thanks!
I had this tea earlier, but haven’t made any notes about. Not even in my head, as I just enjoyed this chai.
Today, it’s a bit different. I was careful about everything — steeping, aromas, flavour and everything.
Drank before I had to throw the snow, I guess about 10 cm of new snow from early morning (it’s 6 pm now) adn it is still snowing with the same intensity.
I wanted some warming up tea; and this one delivers great.
I have opened the pouch and wasn’t impressed. It was quite foul, maybe coconut going slowly rancid or something. Cinnamon was very sweet, and some hints of lemongrass.
But decided to brew it anyway — I took the rest, which were approximately three teaspoons and used those DIY tea bags. That works quite well for most the teas, anyway.
I steeped it for recommended 5 minutes and I was quite afraid being too strong. It was, but in terms of cinnamon. Sweet cinnamon notes complemented with nice, but not great coconut sweetness. And other chai notes? Well somehow muted. It was like hot cinnamon tea; while I have been expecting more from the coconut for sure. Maybe it’s the age. I have not got any lemongrass nor ginger. And speaking of cardamom, I am not sure to have any in my tea.
Overall, quite easydrinking stuff. Much milder than expected.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Coconut, Sweet
This is thanks to SkySamurai! A bunch of single Adagio samples were thrown in the advent package as extra padding. Hey, I’m all for tea being used as bubble wrap. haha. I wasn’t expecting much from this. It looked like mostly hibiscus/rosehips and tasted like mostly hibiscus/rosehips. Where are the BERRIES???
Steep #1 // 9 minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minute steep
2021 Sipdowns: 5
Flavors: Hibiscus, Rosehips
Nice and refreshing! I’m not sure if the leaves were just newer than bag peppermint teas tend to be, or if it’s because they’re less finely broken, but the taste is less stale and a bit more like fresh mint than some other peppermints I’ve had.

I’ve never had bourbon, so I can’t comment on whether or not Adagio successfully captured that flavor here. But I really enjoyed this blend…I’m super into smoky tea right now and this one is the perfect balance of smoky and sweet. So glad I got to try it!

This is not what I was hoping for. The strawberry is super light and watery and not at all juicy. The basil adds a very savory flavor that distracts when hot. There is the slightest bit of a hibiscus like tang (the rose hips?) that I’m not into that comes out as it cools. Into the get rid of pile it goes!
Sipped on these white tea “pearls” a few days ago while playing Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee! I skipped it when it first came out (the game, not the tea) so I decided that I’d finally give it a fair shake – and I’m enjoying it a lot!
In regard to the tea, to call this a pearl styled tea is definitely a bit of a misnomer; they’re definitely much more like a loosely rolled dragonball. I only used one for the session (in my 70ml gaiwan). This is a good tea to brew while I play though; the notes of straw and cream are a bit more flat/one dimensional but the tea handles my non-attentive & distracted brewing style very well. Long steep times aren’t a problem, and while the flavour isn’t exciting it’s not unpleasant either.
I got a sample of this with my sample size order of this! It was part of a week long sample set for their tea community thing. It looks like they have a subscription of some sort where everyone tries the same tea on the same day and interacts about it. So kind of like what we do when multiple people have the same advents. It seems like an interesting and creative way to engage their customers and I’m kind of surprised I don’t see other tea companies doing something similar.
The sip on this tastes a little tart and weak in flavor. The finish is really nice though. I get blueberries and maple and a hint of something sweet. I guess the maple is supposed to carry the idea of pancakes without the actual flavor of pancakes being a part of the mix. This isn’t bad, but I’m not crazy about it either. I don’t think I would have ordered it had I tried it before, but the tiny roommates will likely dig this and plow through the sample bag.
