  • Black Dragon Pearls

    

    This is a nice tea, but honestly I didn't find it to be anything all that special. Especially not with the price tag. Yes, it's lovely to watch them "bloom," and it's nice and smooth, but the flavor isn't especially unique. Again, it's nice, don't get me wrong, but there are plenty of other nice, simple black tea options on Adagio's roster that are equally as nice without the cost. About the only thing this one might have over them is that it seems to brew a second cup just fine, and its aforementioned smoothness.

  • Peach Oolong

    I drink this iced all the time - it's one of my favorite iced tea pouches - but have never tried it hot. So glad I finally have as it's just as delightful. The peach aroma is stunning and it comes through beautifully in the tea. I nice, smooth cup - hot or cold.

  • Butterscotch

    

    The smell is wonderful, full of butterscotch, but it simply doesn't taste like that at all. It's not bad at all, mind, but it just doesn't have any butterscotch flavor to it that I can tell. Which is certainly disappointing given the aroma.

  • Green Dragon Pearls

    

    This has a natural sweetness and a nice, smooth finish. Watching the pearls unfurl is part of the unique experience, and they're good for a second steeping.

  • Blackberry Sage Oolong

    

    Wonderful aroma of sage and blackberry, both with the leaves and while brewing. I was concerned the sage would be overpowering, but it's not. There's a nice balance here - though perhaps there could be just a bit more blackberry. That could be a personal preference though, as it's one of my favorite fruits, haha. This is a very nice, refreshing oolong.

    

    This is a nice, basic oolong tea. There's no fluff added here - no flavoring - just the pure taste of tea. In that, it shines.

  • Golden Flower

    

    I'm not really one for flower teas, but I was intrigued and decided to give this a shot. It smells lovely - rather like jasmine. It did have me worried for what it would taste like though. Thankfully, the flavor is not overpowering with flower like other flower teas I've had. This is nicely balanced. It also doesn't suffer from a fake, medicinal quality as some flower teas do. I'm still not sure if flower teas are quite for me, but if any were it would likely be this one.

  • Irish Breakfast

    

    The first thing I thought of when I smelled this was that it smelled like a barn, and I totally mean that in a good way. There's an earthy aroma of hay and warmth. It's just the only way I can describe it. It tastes wonderful as well, earthy and malty. Just a little sugar and it's a perfect start to the day. I also put a batch in the fridge overnight to try it iced. It wasn't bad, though I prefer it hot as I think it loses some of those nice flavor notes.

  • White Peony

    

    Light, fresh flavor and smells lovely. It's perfect with a little bit of sugar. Sugar in the Raw compliments the flavor profile, as does honey. This is also a great tea to add rosehips to for an immune boosting blend.

  • White Blueberry

    

    Not a fan. I don't get any blueberry flavor. What's worse though is that the tea has this sour aftertaste to it (best way I can describe it). It's not an issue of over-steeping or over-temp water either, so, I can only gather it's the blend itself. Not for me.

  • Assam Melody

    

    There's just something about this blend - from the earthy, hay smell of the leaves, to just that warmth you get from the flavor. It's undeniably comforting.

  • Dragonwell

    

    The aroma is amazing. The leaves smell grassy and when I added water this great toasty aroma was added. The flavor was a bit of a let down. I was expecting that same toasty element but it just wasn't there. It's very light in flavor, which has the grassy, earthiness but is completely missing the toast.

  • Rooibos Vanilla Chai

    

    I'm not sure I get any vanilla flavor out of this, just spice. But it's more toned down than other chai teas I've had, so that's likely due to said vanilla. Just wish I could taste it.

  • Tiger Eye

    

    This has a wonderful aroma, and the taste is just as wonderful. There are very subtle notes of chocolate and caramel. It's well-balanced, and makes for a nice, comforting cup of tea.

  • Bonfire

    

    The aroma is amazing! Combine that with the taste and it's literally like I'm sitting in front of the fireplace. It's a little sweet, a little spice, a little smoke, and it just all combines in this really nice cup of tea. If you're looking for something warm and homey, this is it. Bonus for being "trace amounts" of caffeine.

  • Mango Green Iced Tea

    

    This was a pretty nice green tea, but it wasn't anything special. Honestly, I didn't taste much, if any, mango. If you're after a simple green tea, though, then this fits the bill nicely.

  • Peach Oolong Iced Tea

    

    Wonderful peach flavor! This is the ice tea blend I always make sure to stock in my cupboard. Can't help but come back to it again and again.

  • Rooibos Vanilla Iced Tea

    

    This is a pretty nice iced tea. It tastes rather like a sugar cookie. I do think I prefer the hot version of this blend though, as I think the flavor pops a bit more.

  • Apricot Green Iced Tea

    

    There's a nice pop of apricot in this. It was well balanced with the grassy notes of the green tea. Note: a longer steep allows more of the apricot flavor to come out and doesn't seem to negatively effect the quality of the tea.

  • Citrus Mint Green Iced Tea

    

    This one was pleasant enough, but the mint was a bit overpowering for my tastes. If you're a mint-lover though, this one is certainly for you. It has a refreshing and bright taste, with mint as the star, and underlying grassy notes.

  • Citron Green Iced Tea

    

    Fresh, bright taste. In the end, there's nothing really too special about it. It's your classic green iced tea. Which isn't a bad thing, mind you. I will say, if you drink enough of it, there seems to be the hint of spice note to it, which is interesting.

  • Melonberry Green Iced Tea

    

    Refreshing, subtle flavor. It would have been easy for strawberry to overpower something delicate like watermelon, but it doesn't. Everything is nicely balanced. Also, when it comes to watermelon, sometimes you get things that taste medicinal, and thankfully that's not the case. This tastes exactly like fresh fruit. It's a perfect blend choice for a hot summer day!

  • Bella Luna Blue

    

    A lovely tasting tea that's more about the wow factor. Don't get me wrong, I like it. I would just enjoy it better if the flavor wow'd as much as the color. Still, there really IS something pretty special/magical in this once-in-a-blue-moon blend.

  • Sleeping Dragon

    

    One of my all-time favorite green teas. Mellow flavor, wonderful grassy aroma. It also makes a rather lovely iced blend.

  • Earl Grey Bella Luna

    

    Full disclosure, I don't like coconut and I'm not a big fan of Earl Grey either. My mom wanted to try this one though and so I had some. The coconut isn't overpowering, which is good. You for sure have to like Earl Grey though, haha. If you do, this would certainly be your cup of tea - pun intended. The flavor was on point, and the balance was there.

  • Peach Bellini Iced Tea

    

    This is a really lovely tea. I wasn't really sure how it was going to taste with such an array of fruit, but all the flavors work together in harmony to create a light and refreshing iced tea brew. The stand out notes (for me) were the strawberry and peach, with the rest of the fruit medley blending together on the back end.
