  • Earl Grey Bella Luna

    

    In general earl grey is not my favorite tea, however adagio's marketing for this particular earl grey snagged my attention and my wallet. After my first cup, I'm happy to say that it's probably the best earl grey I've had. It had hints of sweetness with a slightly astringent aftertaste. I added sugar to mine, and it was very good. Looking forward to trying it in other ways recommended by reviewers.

  • Bonfire

    

    Well, this tea is aptly named. As another reviewer stated, it tastes like a bonfire in a cup. I'll admit the liqueur tasted better than I expected, given the aroma of the dry tea leaves. But it still tasted like a bonfire. Some have suggested that it works well as part of a blend, but I highly doubt I will even try that.

  • Maple Creme Oolong

    

    This is like pancakes in your mouth. I wish I had read the recommendation of using maple syrup as a sweetener. Will definitely try that next time. The flavor is mild, but it is delicious.

  • Key Lime Herbal

    

    I was very happy with this tea. After reading a few reviews that suggested trying it iced, I did so. I only had one serving from my communiTEA box, so it ended up being a bit weak. It still tasted good, so I'm looking forward to trying again with the right amount of tea.

  • Decaf Tropics

    

    This was surprisingly good, especially considering the astringency that I smelled prior to steeping. Added a bit of sugar to mine.

  • Lemongrass Ginger

    

    I was a bit skeptical of this tea, based on the aroma from the bag, but it turned out to be very good. I added a bit of honey, and it was delicious!

  • Mango Green

    

    This is a pleasant tea, good flavor. I took mine with honey. I'll probably try sugar, next time.

  • Summer Rose

    

    I'm not a fan of rose (the flavor), and this tea only solidified that preference. It was undrinkable for me, and I usually try to drink at least a full cup of any new tea before I decide whether or not I like it.

  • Coconut Pouchong

    

    I actually like this better than adagio's coconut black tea. You get all of the coconut flavor without the bitterness of the black tea.

  • Formosa Bai Hao

    

    I put quite a bit of honey in mine, and it was decent. Without the honey I was not a fan at all.

  • Pomegranate

    

    This is a decent tea for me, nothing too exciting.

  • White Fuzzy Navel

    

    I enjoyed this tea, though I can't speak to how it compares to an actual Fuzzy Navel. Reading other reviews, I plan to try it iced too.

  • Citrus Mate

    

    Not a huge fan of this tea. It has a strong citrus flavor for sure. Reminds me of something one might drink if they were sick. =)

  • Blueberry

    

    I'm always surprised how well blueberries go with tea. This is a good blueberry tea without as much of the astringency as other adagio flavored black teas.

  • Mango Mate

    

    This is an underwhelming tea for me. I can taste the mango, but it's rather bland overall.

  • Hazelnut

    

    Like many of adagio's flavored black teas, this is a bit astringent. I usually have to reduce the steep time. Once that's done, this is a nice, nutty tea, though it doesn't taste exactly like hazelnuts to me.

  • Chocolate Chip

    

    Like most of the flavored black teas, this one ends a bit astringent. It also seems easy to over-steep. I followed the directions on the pouch, but I will probably knock a minute off, next time. Overall, it is a flavorful chocolate tea.

  • Citron Green

    

    I smelled and tasted the orange in this tea immediately. I added a decent amount of honey, which blended nicely. Very good cup of tea.

  • Darjeeling Puttabong Summer

    

    I think this may be my first darjeeling. Judging by the other reviews, I may just not be a big fan of them, as this one seems to be a favorite.

  • Cocomint Green

    

    I agree with many others that the mint flavor is stronger than the cocoa flavor, however it's not overpowering. This became one of my favorite adagio teas after the first sip.

  • Fruit Medley

    

    I'm a bit ambivalent about this tea. It's definitely tart, as others have said.

  • Cherry

    

    This tea is pretty good, though it doesn't have as much flavor as I'd like. I'm also not a huge fan of the rose petals. Would prefer just the cherries.

  • Yunnan Noir

    

    This tea reminds me of Teavana's Golden Monkey. (I haven't tried adagio's Golden Monkey yet.) It's very smooth. Tried it with honey the second time around, and it was delicious.

  • Thai Chai

    

    I'm a fan of bold chai, so this one is a bit underwhelming for me. Taking my preference away, it's a pretty good chai. Has a bit of a citrus flavor to it. I tried it with sugar, but I think I'll try honey next time.

  • Spearmint

    

    Okay, this is definitely one of my favorite teas. I love spearmint, and this tea doesn't disappoint. Even the aroma is amazing. I added some sweetener, but I could have just as easily taken it without it.

  • Pu-erh Hazelberry

    

    Wow! This is an amazing tea. It's the first pu-erh that I've tried, and I seem to have picked a good one. I concur with many of the other reviewers on the earthiness, which I assume from reading their comments is a feature of pu-erh. The nutty flavor on top of that, along with the hint of strawberry, makes for a wonderful blend of flavors. Will try with cream sometime for sure.

  • Pumpkin Spice

    

    This is an all-around good tea. With sugar, both the pumpkin and spice flavors are subtle. The spice is a bit more pronounced when you don't add sugar.

  • Christmas

    

    I'm definitely not a fan of this tea. I wouldn't necessarily say it's bad; the flavors just don't really do it for me. I must have a very different idea of what Christmas should taste like. =)

  • Honeybush Pumpkin Chai

    

    I don't really taste pumpkin in this tea, and the chai flavor is very faint. I would classify it as a mild tea. I've tried it with both sugar and honey, and I definitely prefer the latter.

  • Coconut

    

    This tea has a good flavor to it. The amount of coconut is just about perfect, though I may try adding a few more leaves next time.

  • Almond

    

    I'm not a huge fan of this one, and I love almond. It seems like it gets bitter really quickly, and there isn't much almond flavor to it. I still have some, so I may experiment with the steep time to see if that helps.

  • Masala Chai

    

    This is a very bold, spicy tea. I knew it was going to be from the aroma of the tea leaves, but it still surprised me when I tried it. It's a little much for me, and I like bold flavors. It was pretty good with sugar added. Next time, I may try using fewer tea leaves than recommended.

  • Raja Oolong Chai

    

    This is an amazing tea with a lot of flavor. I take sugar in my tea, and its sweetness complemented the familiar spice of the chai very well. Delicious!

  • Citrus Mint Green

    

    I'm a huge fan of mint-flavored teas, and this tea doesn't disappoint. The spearmint comes through strong with just a hint of citrus. I like bolder flavors, so I double the suggested amount of leaves. So good!

  • Wild Strawberry

    

    This is a strong strawberry tea. I agree with its description that it is "almost dessert-like," especially after adding sugar. Would likely be good iced or with cream.

  • White Ayurvedic Chai

    

    This tea, blended with adagio's Samurai Mate almost perfectly recreates the Teavana blend that piqued my interest in tea years ago. Love it! To create the blend, add 1 tsp of Samurai Mate and 2 tsp of White Ayurvedic Chai. Steep for 5 minutes @ 212°F.
