drank Dragon Fruit Dream by Adagio Teas
1759 tasting notes

I’ve worked through all the caffeinated teas in my swap with Emilie, so I’m taking a caffeine break for a couple weeks per doctor’s orders (blech). Thankfully, I have lot of teas to get me through thanks to some very generous tea mail from vallhallow. I’ve been saving these and am excited to finally dig in.

James’ favorite tea ever is Magic Dragon from DAVIDsTEA. Since it’s been discontinued, I would love to find another blend that’s similar. I was hoping this would be it, or close, but it’s not close enough. We tried them side-by-side and he said that the Dragon Fruit Dream doesn’t have enough hibiscus. It’s noticeably lighter in color, more of a soft pink than the deep red of hibiscus. I tried it both hot and cold and I can’t say that I’m a fan honestly. Of course, hibiscus teas aren’t a favorite hot and can be hit or miss for me when cold. This had that dusty background note that so many herbals seem to share. James liked it cold, so he’s planning to finish it off. This is one I might have purchased to try at some point, seeing that it has dragon fruit, so I’m glad to be able to try it before buying a larger amount.

Flavors: Dust, Fruity

Have you managed to get some of the fireweed? Just curious :)

Not yet, but I have some picked out for my next order. I appreciate the reminder, I think I’ll go ahead and purchase since I’ve started drinking caffeine-free for a bit.

Trying to taste more of the teas that are unopened in my cabinet, to determine whether I should keep, toss or share. So I guess I am going through my cabinet alphabetically by company for the first tea of the day now. :)

Preparation: Western and then with a little barista Oatly (which is essentially whole fat oatly in a smaller container)
Tasting note: The dry leaf smelt of hershey’s chocolate syrup, so I definitely decided at that point this was going to be an unsweetened latte. Brewed up straight it was pretty brisk with some chocolate syrup notes and sweetness. I pretty much immediately after that sip added the oatly. After that, it tasted kind of like chocolate milk. I liked it less I think than Adagio’s Irish stout because it didn’t have that malty, richness to make it even more chocolatey. Also, Irish stout has sprinkles so yeah… it’s cute and gimmicky. I would say that this is a pretty decent chocolate black tea but not my favorite from Adagio.

This will go in the share pile as I know that I still quite a bit of Irish stout left from St. Patrick’s Day and they are in the same family as taste goes.

Flavors: Chocolate

drank White Peach by Adagio Teas
1535 tasting notes

I shared this tea with my dad, who loves peach teas, and he said it reminded him of peach rings and that it was his favorite tea that I shared with him on my trip. I’m glad to have his feedback because I would have personally rated this tea as more medium. The peach flavor is pretty authentic and fresh, but I don’t love the base tea. It tasted a little too much like twigs or something. I just don’t love white tea.

It sounds like it might line up a little better with actual white peaches, which, when I can find them, make me do a little fruit happy dance. Firmer, less mushier, lighter than yellow ones.

I bet you’re right!

drank For Good by Adagio Teas
1535 tasting notes

The base is quite floral and a little astringent. The fruits are light, but not super clear. Maybe I taste some berry, but it’s not tart, more candy-like. I kept this in the fridge overnight, and now the tea has become much too floral. If you enjoy floral teas, this could be for you, but it’s not my preference.

drank Cream by Adagio Teas

Strong Creamy Smell; and while it tastes somewhat like cream, it’s not overly creamy or sweet. A Little vanilla-y; not much tea flavor itself. Not one of my favorites.

drank Candy Apple by Adagio Teas
1535 tasting notes

I taste a strong apple, along with some cinnamon and maybe maple. Nothing about it really says candy apple, but it tastes good. I’m enjoying it sweetened with milk. The black tea is a good base for it. The apple is pretty authentic.

Willing to try this again. Got this as a sample in my first Adagio order and loved the smell of it. The taste is very smooth and light and I can’t wait to get more to try it out.

drank Irish Stout by Adagio Teas
444 tasting notes

Tea swap sample from vallhallow! I added some oat milk and it brought out the chocolate and cream very nicely! This seems like a good “first thing in the morning” tea for me. I think I may actually have some of this stashed somewhere that I haven’t broken into yet, so thanks for the inspiration to go find it!

drank Hojicha by Adagio Teas
1535 tasting notes

This has a strong roasted flavor, though not too far in that direction so that it tastes almost burnt. I’ve discovered I’m not super into plain hojicha, and this one tastes like many others – not the worst, just somewhere in the middle. There’s just not enough going on in this tea for me. Thanks for sending the sample though, Adagio!

drank Masala Chai by Adagio Teas
1535 tasting notes

Despite all the various ingredients, I taste mostly cardamom and clove. It’s not really hearty or intricate enough. It’s also not spicy. I wish there were more going on here, as there’s almost an emptiness below those main two spices. It’s fine with milk, but nothing new.

drank Spiced Apple Chai by Adagio Teas

AJRimmer Advent Tea #5
This is a nice spicy chai. I expected a little more of a baked apple flavor here, maybe with a bit of sweetness, but sadly there’s not much apple to be found. Nex time, I’m going to try this out with some sugar or honey and see if that enhances the flavor!

drank Virgo by Adagio Teas
1535 tasting notes

I extremely oversteeped this tea, but it happily turned out fine! I’m drinking it cold, and it doesn’t taste like too much. I taste the tea and maybe a light floral flavor. It’s all pretty mild though.

drank Earl Grey Green by Adagio Teas
595 tasting notes

Surprised to see the low ratings for this tea. I‘m enjoying this one way more than I expected. I’ve tried other green Earl Greys which left me wanting to wash out my mouth with soap. This tea has a bright, invigorating flavor with notes of orange, mint, and cardamom. The green tea base lets the pure bergamot flavoring shine through. My favorite way to steep it is by adding a little bit to spent green tea leaves.

Flavors: Bergamot, Cardamom, Citrus, Herbaceous, Perfume

drank Earl Grey Bravo by Adagio Teas
595 tasting notes

Purchased this as part of the Adagio Earl Grey sampler set. I’m far from an Earl Grey aficionado but this was easily the best Earl Grey I’ve ever had. A serious step up from my last one which came from Trader Joe’s.

The tea smelled amazing out of the bag. An intense burst of bergamot and malt. I prepared this as an Earl Grey latte, steeping it for 5 minutes using water just under a boil. Then added a little sweetener and frothed oat milk. I was worried that the citrus would be overpowering due to how potent it smelled but the flavor was surprisingly light and on point. Just a hint of orange zest and sweet perfume that accented the black tea base perfectly.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Orange Zest, Perfume

drank Spiced Apple Chai by Adagio Teas
1535 tasting notes

I taste mostly apple, accompanied by a few spices. I feel like I taste clove the most strongly. It’s not an amazing chai, but it’s solid, and the apple gives it a bit of an interesting twist. The apple is pretty authentic and fruity, but it could have used more spice.

drank Pumpkin Spice by Adagio Teas
1535 tasting notes

Will I ever stop trying Adagio’s pumpkin teas even though I know I don’t like the pumpkin flavoring they use? No, apparently not. Not as long as they keep appearing free in TTBs like this one. I’ve rarely seen a tea with this low of a Steepster rating, so apparently I’m not alone in my feelings. The flavoring is weirdly fruity, and I don’t taste any spices. The black tea doesn’t make much of an impression either, so this is just sort of a weird, fruity tea.

drank Christmas by Adagio Teas
1535 tasting notes

Sample from a TTB. This tastes mostly like clove and a rather boring, slightly harsh black tea. It lacks nuance and really isn’t that tasty, even with milk. We dipped gingerbread cookies in it, like I used to do with tea when I was a kid, and that made it more fun. I don’t plan on drinking this again.

Strange VariaTEA TTB: Tea 21

Pulled this teabag that Roswell Strange shared in the SVTTB and drank it almost a week ago. Thank you!! The tea was fine. At some points I got light mango flavour. It tricked me into thinking I may like it but as I kept drinking the chamomile built up and really ruined it for me. At times I got even a nutty sort of note that reminded me of Forever Nuts and literally nothing should have given that vibe.

Hi! I was wondering if it is possible to be added to participate in the Strange VariaTEA TTB? I just finished participating in another TTB and really loved it! Please let me know if it’s still circulating and taking new participants! I commented on your Instagram as well :)

drank Mocha Nut Mate by Adagio Teas

Reminded me of another tea I think it reminded me of Jumpy Monkey. It had a really nice roasted and nutty taste. If I ever order from Adagio I’d probably add some of this to my cart. I was able to get two good steeps out of the sample packet of this tea I had.

John and I had this tea with just oatly yesterday. I steeped the tea for 4 mins for mine and 5 mins for Johns and the flavors were actually pretty different.

Preparation: Western with oatmilk
Tasting Note: My tea (4 mins) banana notes more prominent. It was creamier and lighter. John’s tea (5 min- I tasted a couple sips) cinnamon and richer bread notes more prominent. Banana flavor wasn’t as noticeable at this time. I would say this is one of the better adagio honeybush blends.

Flavors: Banana, Bread, Cinnamon

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML
