  • Vanilla Green

    

    I wanted to like this one, I really did. But I just couldn't. The vanilla scent was really artificial and taste was almost nonexistent. The main flavour was kinda seaweedy - not a good combination with vanilla.

  • Rooibos Cinnamon Apple

    

    It took a bit of getting used to - initially the herbal rooibos was too much and I didn't like it. But the taste mellowed out and got better as I kept sipping. I do love the scent though - mmmm - classic apple cinnamon, like a granola bar or oatmeal.

  • Wuyi Ensemble

    

    I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. I can definitely taste the mineral flavour, although the scent reminds me of Genmai Cha. Smooth, easy going, a nice plain tea.

  • White Symphony

    

    I don't know if I had an off batch or not, but it really didn't do anything for me. I steeped for 3 minutes and got almost no taste.

  • Earl Grey Green

    

    I've had it in blends so I was excited to try it on its own. That said, I don't love it on its own. The bergamot flavour and green just don't mesh well for my taste.

  • Butterscotch

    

    Initial scent is a wave of butterscotch. I was afraid it would be overwhelming. Thankfully it mellowed out in brewing, making a lovely, mild cuppa. Would make a fantastic latte.

  • Kona Pineapple

    

    The scent when brewed is nice - very fruity. However I found the flavour to be lacking. I tried it hot and did not like it at all. I let it cool in the fridge and liked it a bit better, but it really wasn't impressive.

  • White Tropics

    

    The scent definitely packs a bigger punch than the taste - when I opened the pouch my first thought was 'if you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain'. The taste is more subdued, but you get pineapple in the first sip, coconut in the aftertaste.

  • Decaf Peach

    

    This is a pretty awesome decaf! I'm always a little leery of peachy flavours, but I've never been disappointed by Adagio's peach teas. It's not quite as good as Peach Serenity, but it makes for a lovely evening tea.

  • Minty Comfort

    

    Oh wow! I didn't know how I'd feel about this tea, but it is amazing! Hot and cool at the same time, like a comforting hug. If it were one of Adagio's fandom blends it would be Rowan from the Throne of Glass series, as it smells exactly like pine and snow. I will absolutely be getting this again.

  • Genmai Cha

    

    This is a pretty decent cuppa. A very light flavour. The toasted rice was a nice change, reminiscent of a local sushi restaurant. It did get kind of a weird aftertaste the more I sipped, though.

  • Cha Cha

    

    A lovely tea, perfect for the evening. A nice mix of chamomile, lemongrass and peppermint. I didn't taste the peppermint much, but I'm not complaining.

  • Kentucky Bourbon

    

    The scent threw me off at first, as it has a very caramel-appely scent, not at all like a bourbon. But if you take your time, the bourbon does waft through. I may be biased as a scotch fan, but the lapsang souchong is in a perfect ratio here, to give just enough smokiness to give a bourbon effect, but not so much as to overpower the other flavours. A great rendition of bourbon. Perfect for summer nights by the campfire, or cool autumn evenings with cozy blankets. Also delightful cold brewed into iced tea and drank completely plain.

  • Earl Grey Bravo

    

    It's definitely a bold earl grey, but I can't say it's my favourite. The bergamot tends to overpower the other flavours and leave almost a soapy flavour. It's nice blended with other teas, but it's a little much on its own.

  • Fujian Rain

    

    I'm still on the fence whether I like oolongs or not, but this was quite a lovely cup! I definitely picked up on the mineral flavour people talk about, but it had a very nice, hard to describe taste. Added just a splash of milk and it improved both the mouthfeel and brought out the delicate flavours.

  • Lavender Lemon

    

    Oh man this is nice! It has a very strong lavender scent right out of the bag, but it plays second to the lemon taste in a really nice way. Very relaxing, fresh and clean taste. It's like drinking a hot lemonade. I really want to order more and try it iced with honey.

  • Hibiscus

    

    I really liked the fruity scent right out of the bag - reminded me of fruity marshmallows. Was not a fan of the bitter taste, but loved the floral aftertaste.

  • Mango Melange

    

    As someone who doesn't like mango, I had my doubts about this tea, but it's not a bad cup. It's just kind of bizarre. It has a strong fruity/floral scent, but not strongly mango. The same goes for taste - it's fruity and nicely tart, but I'm not picking up on a lot of mango.

  • Decaf Orange

    

    The dry smell is way stronger than the brewed smell, which is nice. Dry, it kinda smells like citrus chewing gum. Once brewed it is a lovely mellow scent. The initial taste is a strong black tea, but the orange has a very nice, soft note. This would be a great summertime black tea.

  • Watermelon Cooler

    

    What I can taste of it is pleasant, but the flavour is really, really mild. I feel like I ate a watermelon jolly rancher half an hour ago. I might try again with a longer steep time, and maybe some mint as suggested, but overall it doesn't wow me.

  • White Tangerine

    

    I'm not normally a fan of white teas but this is really nice. The dry scent is much stronger than the brewed scent, but it is lovely! It's a very mild taste, but the tangerine is just there enough to make a lovely cup. I added half a teaspoon of honey and it brought out the flavours even more.

  • Bella Luna Blue

    

    Wow this tea is awesome! It absolutely lives up to the hype. A delicious combination of lemon & blueberry, with a rich blue colour. Adding a couple drop of lemon juice boosts the flavour and makes the magic happen, although too much will overpower the taste of the tea. Wonderful hot or iced.

  • Peach Serenity

    

    Makes a great iced tea, especially cold brewed! It has the familiar peach flavour without being sickly sweet like 'peach punch flavour'.

  • Pomegranate Grove

    

    A really nice spicy, fruity blend. Great hot or cold-brewed!

  • Sleeping Dragon

    

    I used it as the green tea element of a Moroccan mint tea, and it was fantastic. Can't wait to try it on its own.

  • Autumn Mist Green

    

    A delightful, warm, cozy tea. I love the evenness of flavours between the creme brulle and the cinnamon - like a unique apple cider. Perfect with a bit of sugar.

  • Chamomile

    

    Has a great flavour, lovely calming scent, and some of the nicest flowers I've seen in a loose leaf chamomile.

  • Throat Coat Lemon Echinacea

    

    I use this all the time when I'm singing, or have a cold. It does exactly what it says - coats the throat, and soothes it. Not an every day sipper, and I'm not a huge fan of the licorice flavour, but if I get a sore throat, this is the first thing I reach for.

  • Yorkshire Red

    

    This is my go-to everyday tea. A lovely rich flavour, good for any time of day. Important not to steep it longer than 4 minutes, 3 is best.

  • Earl Grey Moonlight

    

    This is without a doubt my favourite earl grey tea ever! It is so smooth, creamy and relaxing. Absolutely delightful.
