From Adagio Teas

Adagio’s Decaf Vanilla Black combines the pure, sugary-spicy flavor of vanilla with bright Ceylon black tea from Sri Lanka. Soothing, sweet and very ‘beany’ vanilla fragrance (like warm sugar cookies made with fresh vanilla beans). Very well-blended and pleasant astringency in the finish. A gentle, natural decaffeination process retains the delicate shape and flavor of the tea leaves.

Ingredients: decaf ceylon tea, natural vanilla flavor

Finished this one off, too! Glad to have a decaf for the 7:45 cup of tea. Added some sweetener since I was skeptical of decaf and it turned out about as you’d expect. Probably won’t order again since I don’t normally particularly like either decaf or vanilla, but was glad to have this option when I was pregnant and nursing!


Good to see you back—-are you able to climb back on the caffeine wagon yet?


Good to “see” you, too! I am indeed… though it’s slower than I would have guessed to build tea drinking back in a habitual all-day thing. I tend to get in a cup or two a day and that’s ti. I thought re-engaging with Steepster might help. :)

I think I give up on artificially flavored tea…

Oh, don’t give up on flavored teas, there are a lot of great ones. Check out 52teas or Golden Moon – both have great flavored teas that don’t taste artificial.

There are some great flavored teas out there. Just be patient and you will find them.


I think I might just be sensitive to something in these teas. I get a strong, bitter, almost chemical taste in my Adagio flavored teas (except the Cinnamon) whereas my husband, who thinks all tea “tastes like hot water,” doesn’t notice anything out of the ordinary. But thanks, I’ll be sure to give something else a try.

Yikes. This one is heaps better hot and sweet and milky as a dessert tea than it is black, unsweetened, cold, and iced. Note to self, ice the plain ones and the fruity ones, not the vanillas and almonds and stuff. It doesn’t lose any points for being ungood cold, but this one is eternally kicked out of the ‘second steep it and drink it cold and plain the next day’ rotation.

Quite decent but I would love to see more vanilla flavor in it, or to be more exact, a sweeter kind of vanilla, reminiscent of cookies. The one Adagio uses is like vanilla extract in a bottle – smells yummy but tastes bitter.

Very good, mild tea! Some who love the super strength and potency of other teas may not love this tea, but it’s great for those with a more delicate pallet!

No overly impressed with this tea. It wasn’t horrible or anything it just wasn’t great. I had it will a bit of milk and it distinctly reminded of when I experimented with putting French vanilla creamer in black tea. It kind of results in a weak tea, fake vanilla flavor. I will finish the sample I got but definitely won’t be buying more.

has an overwhelming smell …. smells very good, but its just so overpowering that i find it unpleasant after a while

that being said the taste is pretty mild, pretty good.. i mix it with chamomile for afternoon tea, as the chamomile neutralizes the smell of the vanilla and the vanilla masks the taste of the chamomile( that im not too fond of )

with this being my first decaf/flavored tea it doesn’t exactly encourage me to try others but as a mask for the chamomile it makes a very acceptable cup that’s relaxing

I would not call this a “natural” vanilla flavor – more like vanilla icing. Aside from that, it’s tasty enough, and satisfies my evening vanilla tea cravings without the caffeine. Don’t oversteep, it will get bitter.

Thank you to AJRimmer for the sample of this for tea davent calender day #7.

I have contemplated ordering this one myself, since I like decaf blacks and vanilla flavoured things. However I’m in a new bracket thanks to vanilla comomo and every other vanilla tea just isn’t as great. I will hold off on ordering this next time I put in a Adagio order.

The black tea is a bit dull, even though I overleafed it and steeped it for over 20 minutes. The vanilla is nice, but has nothing on other vanilla teas I’ve tried.

Wow I love the base tea they’re using here. It’s incredibly chocolatey in both steeps. The vanilla is quite present and tasty. There’s a slight bit of bitterness at the very end, but I can put up with that. I can’t emphasize enough how delicious this tea is. It doesn’t need milk, and it’s definitely as good as, or even better than the not decaf version. Extremely pleased.
