User's reviews

  • Berry Creme Compote

    

    This tea tastes berry enough but the creme isn't very present. It's quite sour and the creme doesnt really offset the weird outcome of this rather reasonable collection of flavors. I imagine it might be flavorful in all the right ways for you but it really didn't do it for me.

  • Ginger

    

    The ginger explosion I was expecting was simply not present in this tea. Whether that may be a point either for or against for you, review reader, I find it actually mellowed out the black tea and sweetened the blend. I'm not a huge ginger tea fan but this one is good as far as ginger teas go.

  • Green Rooibos Citron

    

    This one definitely didn't live up to the smell test hype. It was woody and earthy but very lacking in the brightness that usually accompanies such zesty scents. I was disappointed by the outcome, though the flavor of the tea itself was decent.

  • Ooooh Darjeeling

    

    This darjeeling is effortlessly low astringency with the softest, smoothest hint of maltiness and a faint whisp of something fruity. Darjeeling isn't my favorite but I'd be remiss if I didn't rate this iteration according to its quality rather than by my own enjoyment. My palate is fickle but this tea is a great example of darjeeling.

  • Sencha Premier

    

    I much prefer the standard sencha from this retailer but this one isn't terrible. I'm not used to much high quality sencha and this one definitely has more and more complex notes. It's distinctly more grassy and very honeyed in comparison to the sencha overture I know and love. It's not my favorite and I won't be reordering but I understand the hype.

  • Decaf Blueberry

    

    The tanginess of th Ceylon is muted in all its incarnations and appearances in Adagio teas but this one really takes the cake. I also own a sample of the fully caffeinated blueberry blend and the berry flavors are a little too in your face there but soften beautifully here.

  • Yunnan Noir

    

    I don't know if it's just me but this tea didn't taste as textured as others have made it out to be. There were also comments about fruit and honey notes but all I could taste was a wallop of honey on every sip. It's not terrible but not to my taste.

  • Turmeric Bliss

    

    This tea has so little turmeric in the pale yellow liquor that I was convinced I somehow prepared it incorrectly! Besides that, the tanginess was a little out of place in this blend to the point that it evoked one of those "weird tea" faces I make upon first sip and it was not because I loved it.

  • Thai Chai

    

    If I could give this negative stars I would. Lemongrass does NOT work well in this blend and it shows. I had a visceral reaction to the tea the first time I tried it and had to dump it immediately. This tea is a cacophony of conflicting flavors that taste like the way an upset stomach feels. It's tangy in all the wrong ways.

  • Hunan Gold

    

    This tea is one of the least grassy greens I've had in a while but the bitterness is quite strong. I'm not saying I hated it but the aforementioned bitterness makes it harder to love than to like. It's sweet and floral from the get go and only gets moreso on subsequent steeps with the bitterness getting less and less pronounced.

  • White Ayurvedic Chai

    

    This tea is so cozy, I just want to float on a river of it as I bob up and down with the current. The cinnamon plays very well with the ginger and is one chai that I enjoy more than I dislike it!

    That being said, I was missing the tropical flavors that really make this blend what it is. I enjoyed the flavors I got but some just weren't present. I can only imagine how good it his tea might have been if app flavors showed up to the party.

  • Rooibos Jasmine

    

    I couldn't have imagined this but rooibos and jasmine together taste like banana. I really didn't enjoy anything about this blend and neither did many of my friends in my tea group chat. I guess I can see why someone might like this blend but I really don't.

  • Chocolate

    

    It's got a great, rich cocoa flavor but I've never liked chocolate so I didn't happen to like it. The chocolate flavor runs deep in this blend. I can't fault the tea for my general dislike of chocolate teas so five stars it is!

  • Tea-tox

    

    I didn't taste nearly any mint in this blend but definitely noted a subtle spiciness that balanced out the earthiness of the green rooibos. I wouldn't drink it everyday due to its effects on the body based on my own needs but I would enjoy a tea with the same flavor profile without the diuretic side effect.

  • Rooibos Lemon Cloud

    

    I really hated this blend. I've tried a few rooibos blends that taste medicinal but this is the worst I've ever had. The lemon and vanilla impart a sweetness that contrasts so heavily with the earthiness of the rooibos and comes together as a blend that turns my stomach.

  • Ginger Peach

    

    I wouldn't be able to tell you whether this idea is better in concept or practice because my sample wasn't a good representation of it's flavors. However, I can tell you I enjoyed my portion a great deal. Many people on the parent site had contrasting opinions whether the ginger was too weak or too strong but mine erred on the weaker side. As far as that goes, I rather enjoyed the peachiness accented by the subtle zing of the ginger. Neither flavor was particularly bold but it made for a cozy cup.

  • Dragon Fruit Dream

    

    This tea is subtly tart at the beginning but as you continue to sip, the tartness skews more toward sourness and it put me off from the tea on first consumption. I added some stevia in order to counteract the overpowering tartness but it only succeeded in creating this dance between sour and sweet that never overlapped well enough to complement the tea. I'm going to try it iced and update later.

  • Fujian Baroque

    

    This tea is an interesting black tea that skews toward the smoothness and likeness in flavor profile to Assam. There are additional chocolate flavor that somewhat overpower the mineral notes that I very much prefer. It's not my favorite but it's an interesting tea overall.

  • Lemon Meringue Green

    

    The lemony citrus notes are well balanced with the cream flavor to make a delicious, calorie-free dessert in a cup. I find that this blend doesn't really need sweetener but I often take my teas plain so take that with a grain of salt. However, I can say this is a particularly sweet blend regardless.

  • Gaucho Mate Chai

    

    Aside from the fact that this tea tastes very little like mate, it's not a terrible tea. The chai is a little subdued, perhaps to highlight the toasted mate base, but clove runs rampant on the palate. The flavors are fairly unbalanced and don't lend themselves toward being an exceptional chai

  • Honeybush

    

    Honeybush has always been my go-to when choosing between it and rooibos. This tea is comfy and cozy and great for snuggling up in a blanket with a good book.

  • Chocolate Chai

    

    The blend of chocolate and spice is much more harmonious than I expected it to be. The slight sweetness contrasts and rounds out the boldness of the spices to create one comfy and cozy cup.

  • Daydream

    

    This tea wasn't as delicate as the description may have suggested but it wasn't terrible. However, I found the passion flower notes were too strong and dominated the blend a little too much.

  • Casablanca Twist

    

    When I tried this blend I was hit with an overwhelming menthol punch from the peppermint. It completely drowned out any hint of darjeeling that may have been present, leaving it tasting more like straight up peppermint tea than would even make sense.

  • Foxtrot

    

    It was good for what it is (though I admit that I don't love chamomile or rooibos), though the rooibos doesn't play as prominent a part as its placing on the ingredient list might suggest. If I enjoyed any of the ingredients I would surely love this blend and have reviewed accordingly.

  • Rooibos Caramel

    

    This is probably the worst rooibos tea I've ever had. Rooibos already tastes so medicinal but with the added caramel it tastes less like medicinal tea and more like straight up medicine

  • Decaf Ceylon

    

    This is the best decaf I've ever had! I don't really like full Caff Ceylon due to its tang but this iteration dulls the tang and leaves you with a bracing cup without caffeine.

  • White Strawberry

    

    This is one of my top 3 favorite flavored white teas. Oftentimes the flavoring overshadows the subtlety of the white tea itself but this one was a gentle ray of sunshine that highlighted the white instead of masking it.

  • Silver Sprout

    

    I was fortunate enough to have my tea prepared for me when I couldn't make it myself but with that comes an altered flavor profile of someone who had never made tea before. The flavor wasn't as grassy or astringent as others have expressed but was smooth and smokey and wholly enjoyable.

  • Formosa Oolong

    

    This tea isn't exactly my go-to oolong, but it's not bad. It errs on the side of black in terms of it's fermentation rather than some oolongs that lie closer to the middle of the green/black spectrum. I'm glad I tried it but I won't be reordering.

  • Ti Kuan Yin

    

    This tea is both smooth and buttery as well as sweet and floral. While it's not my favorite oolong, it's quite enjoyable. It's a departure from the oolongs I typically love but it's still a good cup of tea.

  • Apricot Green

    

    This tea is easily my favorite flavored green! I can't believe I thought peach was better than apricot because this blend surely proves me wrong.

  • Currant

    

    This is the weakest of all the fruit flavored black teas I've tried from Adagio. The currant flavor was nice but barely present. If you're looking for a similar tea that's even jammier, I'd go with passionfruit.

  • Sleeping Dragon

    

    A nice, vegetal green that's smooth all the way down. It struck me as a little odd at first but the more I became acquainted with it, the more I began to like it. It's also quite buttery with little to no grassiness.

  • Assam Harmony

    

    I much prefer Adgaio's cheaper Assam, Assam Melody. This one is a little too honeyed for me. I didn't take any sugar in mine but if I did it would've been too sweet for me.

  • Green Rooibos Blueberry

    

    Green is the only way I'll take rooibos and this tea is a shining example of that. It's sweet without being olive-y like red rooibos tends to taste, and least to me. The blueberry is light but placeable.

  • Rooibos Mango

    

    Just tastes like olives (which is almost always what rooibos tastes to me) with very little mango. If it had tasted more strongly of mango it would be recommendable but in it's current form it is not.

  • Peach Bellini

    

    Tastes just like peach candy! Quite light but you can always compensate with a longer steep time since there's no risk of astringency.

  • Peach Oolong

    

    Not as good as Adagio's white peach but the oolong adds a nice roasted flavor that complements the peach quite nicely. The complexity of the oolong sets this peach tea a cut above the rest.

  • Jasmine Phoenix Pearls

    

    My favorite floral tea! The jasmine isn't a punch to the face like other jasmine teas have been for me. It's delicate enough to be complex without being too subtle. It doesn't really leave you wanting more but that's only because it delivers exactly the amount of floral flavors and aromas you want in a jasmine.

  • Peppermint

    

    So strong and bright! A very good example of peppermint tea. Spearmint still reigns king in my house but this peppermint is a close contender.

  • ROYAL ENGLISH BREAKFAST

    

    This is my all-time favorite English Breakfast, though it's a little expensive to drink too often. I will definitely be ordering more.

    EDIT: I've figured up the cost and it's actually not that much per cup. Very accessible for a solid breakfast cup.

  • French Vanilla Chai

    

    I'm not a huge fan of chai but the spices in this blend aren't so in-your-face that I can't enjoy it. The vanilla also adds a smoothness that counteracts the spiciness of this tea.

  • White Peach

    

    I've started delving into white tea and this one is one of my go-tos. I'm absolutely stocking up on this one! It's not as complex as it's oolong cousin but flavored white teas are almost always delicious.

  • Cha Cha

    

    I don't know if it was just my portion but all I tasted was chamomile and the slightest hint of lemongrass. No mint noted. It's not inherently undrinkable but it's not my bag.

  • Throat Therapy

    

    The flavor isn't amazing but it coats the throat beautifully! Would I drink this regularly for taste? No. Would I use it medicinally? Absolutely.

  • Gunpowder

    

    Not terrible but the smokiness is a little subdued. It's not my favorite by even the loosest definition but it's absolutely good for multiple steeps.

  • Vanilla Oolong

    

    I prefer my oolongs unflavored and this definitely cemented that. I don't feel like vanilla works very well with the oolong in this blend.

  • Maple Creme Oolong

    

    Tastes like maple syrup but without much cream flavor. Sweet but heavy. It's good but not my favorite. If you're more a fan of dessert teas than I am then I absolutely suggest you pull the trigger on this one.

  • Ceylon Sonata

    

    It's alright but not remarkable like Adagio's Assam Melody. I couldn't taste much complexity beyond the overall tang. I understand the appeal but it's not my bag.

  • Blackberry Sage Oolong

    

    I had such high hopes for this tea. I really did! I'm a fan of the flavors as individuals but this tea just did NOT work for me. It tastes less like blackberry and more like sage tea with other flavors added in such a way that it muddies the taste of the tea in general.

  • White Eternal Spring

    

    This tea is really in-your-face for a white tea. I really liked it--loved it, even--until I tried Adagio's Buddha's Dream and now this one just isn't as great.

  • Decaf Hazelnut Cinnamon Creme

    

    Tastes quite similar to Bigelow Vanilla Chai, of which I'm not a fan. However, if you like the aforementioned tea then this is certainly a step up!

  • Golden Flower

    

    This is a five-star oolong to say the least! It's on the cheaper side of Adagio's oolong offerings but does not skimp on flavor! It's got subtle floral and fruit notes that make it a delight to the palate.

  • Rooibos

    

    Strong and full, though rooibos always tastes like olives to me. This one is particularly good but does not buck the trend.

  • Fujian Orchid

    

    If you like soft, rounded oolongs with a sense of complexity, let this be your next buy. It's smooth and floral without tipping the scales toward the "flavored tea" category. If you like floral teas but are kinda burnt out on them then I absolutely have the tea for you.

  • Sencha Overture

    

    I absolutely adore the flavor of seaweed and this tea does not disappoint! I'm absolutely adding this to my cart for my next order!

  • Earl Grey Bella Luna

    

    I'm not a huge fan of coconut but it doesn't have much of a presence in this blend. Points deducted because I know it should.

  • Passionfruit Tango

    

    The main flavor of this blend is hibiscus, which has never been my favorite. However, it's more than just the hibiscus and the passionfruit does shine through but the cinnamon is an odd flavor to round everything up.

  • Watermelon Cooler

    

    This tea is delicious but mild in flavor. To remedy this, I steeped for 20-25 minutes and it worked pretty well.

    EDIT: this makes a *fantastic* iced tea!

  • Melonberry Green

    

    I loved this tea but hoped the green tea flavors would have been more prominent. The watermelon and strawberry were a knockout combo but the green barely showed up to the count.

  • Decaf Raspberry

    

    This is a killer decaf! There's minimal loss of flavor in the Ceylon while the raspberry still pops out against the steady and subtle astringency. I've had two cups of it and already know it's a winner.

  • Campfire S'Mores

    

    I really didn't enjoy this tea, plain and simple. There were absolutely redeeming qualities, such as the smokiness being a boon for the complexity of the flavor profile but overall it just tasted like a chocolatey punch to the gut. The marshmallows being pork-based is 100% a huge drawback for tea-loving friends with dietary restrictions based on religion or ethics. Why make your marshmallows out of pork gelatin when so many individuals abstain from pork in particular? That's a huge deal for me. I absolutely won't be reordering based on the gelatin alone but missing out on the flavors doesn't make me upset about it.

  • Tiger Eye

    

    I don’t know if it’s just me but I find the chocolate overpowers the caramel and vanilla notes. It's not my favorite in the least, though it would certainly be better if the flavors were more balanced.

  • Milk Oolong

    

    It took me a while to figure out how I felt about this tea but I ended up liking it, though it was a little odd.. It wasn’t as smooth and creamy as I thought it’d be. It was nice but mostly woody.

  • Yunnan Jig

    

    I have absolutely no idea how I managed to do this but it somehow tasted a little astringent. It was super earthy and deep in flavor and quite enjoyable.

  • Summer Rose

    

    I was all about this tea when I first bought it but burned myself out on it. I tried to revisit it after ignoring for a few months and it just didn't stand up to my prior assessments. It's still good but probably reorder.

  • Caramel

    

    I am a huge fan of caramel and was hoping this would be a comparable vegan alternative to Bigelow's Salted Caramel bags. I don't know if it was a bad batch or what but it tasted so artificial and off. I really hoped it would be good but I had to give it to a friend. They enjoy it, however, thus the stars.

  • Mandarin Green

    

    This tea is far more subtle than I was expecting it to be but that absolutely works in its favor. The orange flavors accentuate the gree rather than smother it.

  • Jump Start

    

    This tea honestly tasted like gingerbread-flavored cardboard. I find that toasted mate often has the aforementioned cardboard taste and this felt like the tea was putting a new coat of paint on the same old flavors.

  • Decaf Spice

    

    One of the best decafs I’ve ever had and absolutely my favorite decaf from Adagio. The spices were smooth and added dimension without incorporating spiciness. Absolutely delicious.

  • Double Ginger

    

    This is not an subtle blend in the slightest! It’s interesting overall but burns a little in the back of the throat when sipped. I don't think I could recommend this to anyone but the biggest ginger fans.

  • Dragonwell

    

    I enjoyed this tea toward the tail end of my cup but the first half tasted like sweet tap water. Maybe it’s the combination of its subtle grassiness with the buttery mouthfeel but it’s definitely not a good tea to pair with savory foods.

  • Assam Melody

    

    I quite enjoyed this tea with its sweet malt and plantain flavors, even though I’m typically not a fan of either.

  • Decaf Earl Grey

    

    It barely tastes like anything. I’ve tried other decaf teas and the others are almost all better. I’m not upset that I bought it but it’s definitely not what I was expecting.

  • White Blueberry

    

    I quite like Adagio’s other blueberry offerings but this exceeds all the rest (at least of those I’ve tried). The blueberry is sweet enough to give the white tea a little oomph without overpowering it like so many other flavorings do.

  • Lavender Lemon

    

    If the wonderful flavors of this blend were stronger that would be amazing but as it stands I’d never stop drinking it if that was at all possible.

  • Lemongrass Ginger

    

    Quite a bold tea so I steep it for a shorter period of time but fantastic for helping move along an illness!

  • Almond

    

    Tasted more bitter than astringent and the almond flavor only really came in toward the tail end of the sip. It was really one of the most astringent teas I've ever had.

  • Spearmint

    

    My first introduction to spearmint tea was through a really cheap box of bags so this is a definite step up from that. It’s smooth and clear with a hint of earthiness that always hits the spot.

  • Blueberry

    

    I bought this tea as a recommended tea sample for half price and wasn’t expecting it to be this good. I had tasted Adagio’s blueberry flavors with Bella’s Luna Blue but this was the first time I had tried them outside of that context and I wasn’t impressed but enjoyed the blend regardless. It’s not the best black and berry blend I’ve ever had but I like it enough to keep drinking it. I’m not sure yet if I’m going to order more once my sample runs out.

  • Pu-erh Tahiti

    

    My all-time favorite tropical tea as well as my favorite pu-erh. You really can’t lose with this one! I've never really been a pu-ehr fan but this one has a lot of ease of access.

  • Raspberry

    

    This tea is absolutely delicious! My favorite berry black tea second only to Adagio’s Raspberry Green

  • English Breakfast

    

    I didn't think I was an English Breakfast fan until I tried this one! It's smooth, sweet, and complex in a way the other English Breakfasts I've tried (all bagged to boot) simply aren't.

  • Rooibos Earl Grey

    

    This tea just didn't do it for me. It tasted almost entirely of medicine and not much else. I ordinarily love earl grey (and have enjoyed most I've come across) this one was absolutely terrible.

  • Rooibos Nutcracker

    

    This tea was mostly nutty; I couldn't really taste much of the caramel undertones. It was smooth and creamy but almost felt like it got lost in the sea of Adagio's other fantastic Christmas blends.

  • Candy Cane

    

    I didn't really enjoy this tea. The peppermint flavor itself wasn't prominent enough to offset the odd choice of a coconut addition. The proportions of the ingredients really threw me, too.

  • Honeybush Blueberry Pancake

    

    This tea certainly achieves its goal to taste just like blueberry pancakes with maple syrup. It's a bit overpowering to drink on the regular, though.

  • Masala Chai

    

    A great example of masala chai! Nice and heavy on the spices without overpowering the black tea base. I'm not a fan of overly spiced chai so this really hit the spot.

  • Christmas

    

    Quite a good tea but feels like a flavor combination I’ve tasted so many times before in Adagio’s monthly subscription box so it doesn’t seem super distinct to me.

  • White Chai

    

    This is a great chai with wonderful ginger notes. It’s not my favorite tea because I don’t really like chai but objectively speaking it puts an interesting spin on a familiar concept.

  • Yuletide Toddy

    

    Definitely Christmasy in flavor but I feel like it would be a bit better with a stronger and more complex fruitiness to it rather than tasting mostly like cinnamon apple.

  • Cocomint Green

    

    This tea just doesn’t do it for me. Maybe if the chocolate was subtler and the base was black tea instead of green this might work better, but as it stands this one won’t be a repeat performance for me.

  • Chestnut

    

    Definitely an excellent coffee replacement! My coffee-loving husband gives it his seal of approval.

  • Honeybush Mango

    

    This is an amazing tea! The sweetness of this tea makes it easy to forgo sweetener but not so sweet that it would be undrinkable if you chose to add it.

  • Gingerbread

    

    While this tea is nice, it really doesn’t taste like gingerbread. It’s spiced like a typical gingerbread but doesn’t really get all the way there

  • Spiced Green

    

    An interesting chai to be sure but a chai nonetheless! The switch up of green tea in place of the more traditional black makes the tea a little softer around the edges but the spices usually present in chai were all there.

  • Raja Oolong Chai

    

    The cinnamon in this blend tasted similar to just taking a pinch of ground cinnamon and setting it on your tongue. There was almost nothing to support it or make it more complex so it just felt like a cinnamon tea.

  • Genmai Cha

    

    Absolutely amazing. I’ve never loved savory teas ala chai but this one might be my favorite overall! The rice is prominent but doesn’t completely overshadow the green, which balances the tea and adds a sense of delicateness and duality. I had to stop myself from drinking my whole portion in one day and hours later I still don’t know how I managed to do it. That’s how delicious this tea is, folks.

  • Pomegranate Grove

    

    Maybe there was a problem with my kettle or something but I could taste no trace of pomegranate. In its place was more of an apple pie flavor which, while not unappealing, isn’t the selling point of this tea.

  • Pu-erh Chorange

    

    Maybe I did my rinse too long and that altered the flavor drastically but there was almost no orange flavor. The chocolate was smooth and decadent, though,

  • Fiery Cinnamon Spice

    

    I really enjoyed this tea in the wee hours of the morning when the sun had yet to rise as I went to work. The air was cold but this tea was bracing enough to keep me comfortable. Absolutely delicious.

  • VANILLA CARAMEL TEA BAGS

    

    While I enjoy these flavors individually, they don't work all that well in this particular blend. Bigelow can definitely do better.

  • Green Tea Chai tea bags

    

    While I'm always up for trying unusual combinations, these definitely didn't belong together. I'm already incredibly picky with chai and this one is too out of place to be thoroughly enjoyable.

  • Earl Grey Loose Tea

    

    Not my favorite Earl Grey--Adagio takes that honor by far--but this one's pretty good. It's a good starter when you don't know which direction to take your Earl Grey consumption (as there are a lot of variables)

  • Green Tea with Mint Tea Bags

    

    This was a great minty green tea! I already knew I enjoyed the flavor combo but this one in particular is quite good.

  • CHAMOMILE MINT HERBAL TEA

    

    One of my favorite nighttime teas. I like it a little more than Twinings' nighttime offerings. Chamomile and mint are always a solid pairing.

  • Green Assam

    

    This tea is enjoyable in a way I wasn't expecting. Many of the reviews on the parent site expressed the tea's deep astringency and apparent difficulty to correctly steep, but I tried it and really enjoyed it. The astringency is definitely there, but much more subdued for me than others have suggested.

  • Cranberry

    

    Much sweeter than I thought it'd be! A lovely tea to say the least. I really enjoyed the mild tartness that juxtaposed the sweetness.

  • Passionfruit

    

    I really enjoyed this tea. It was a great start to an otherwise decent day, so my morning cup really stood out.

  • Orane Passionfruit Jasmine Green Tea

    

    This tea sits perfectly between grassy, fruity and floral. Definitely a good tea for cheering you up.

    EDIT: I learned the hard way that it's easy to make this an astringent cup if you aren't paying attention. It's actually quite finnicky.

  • Orange Passionfruit Jasmine Green Tea

    

    This is such a good tea! It's not as expensive as the tea I usually drink but it's very good for its price range.

  • PASIFLORA HERBAL TEA BAGS

    

    Didn't really help me fall asleep, but it wasn't terrible. It tasted completely medicinal but if you like chamomile then I would suggest you try this. I don't like chamomile enough to enjoy this one.

  • White Peony

    

    Absolutely delicious. Characteristically subtle, it has a sweetness hovering over top. It's almost floral, almost fruity, but definitely tasty.

  • Pu erh dante

    

    A lot of people have commented that this tea is very mild, but I can't taste it at all. I've always been able to taste teas when infused according to instructions, but this one is an outlier.

  • Rooibos Orange

    

    This tea was the definition of okay. I thought it was very middle of the road, but my fiance liked it a bit. However, when asked if he wanted me to buy more, he said it wasn't worth it for how much he liked it.

  • Green Tea with Pomegranate

    

    This tea transforms Bigelow's otherwise grassy and generally average green tea into something quite delicious. It's sweet without needing sweetener and fruity enough to make you want to turn it into a refreshing iced tea.

  • GREEN TEA BAGS

    

    This tea is quite grassy compared to other teas, Lipton especially. Not my favorite, but it'll work in a pinch.

  • Vanilla Chai Tea Bags

    

    It seemed like a good tea, but I just don't like chai. The vanilla was nice, though.

    I can imagine it is easy to love if you're a chai fan so I'll reflect that in my review.

  • Cream Tea

    

    This is one of the smoothest teas I've tried from Adagio. It really tastes like cream, even though it's completely vegan! As someone with that particular diet, I genuinely can't ask for more for a cheap and delicious tea.

  • Cream

    

    This tea stands alone very well but also blends with other flavors beautifully. Truly a gem in the Adagio crown, especially for its price!

  • Green Pekoe

    

    Very subtle but also very enjoyable. I really liked this tea and was disappointed to learn Adagio is discontinuing it.

  • Jade Snail

    

    It's a decent cup that's obscured with a pond-like taste. This tea makes such a strange cup that it's hard to drink. I actually had to toss out my cup after a few sips.

  • Honeybush Vanilla

    

    This used to be my favorite honeybush tea until it was unseated by Honeybush Apricot, but this one is still really good. Very good for late night sipping where you don't want to disrupt your sleep schedule, which is usually when I turn to this blend.

  • Honeybush Apricot

    

    This is definitely the best honeybush tea I've ever tried. I thought I liked Honeybush Vanilla, but this tea blows it out of the water! It's sweet enough to forgo additional sweetener and smooth enough to forgo cream. Absolutely delicious!

  • Fujian Rain

    

    This is undoubtedly one of my favorite oolongs, second only to Wuyi Ensemble, also by Adagio. It's earthy and woodsy with a smoky, roasted flavor. It's simply delicious and I already know I'll be getting a larger size after this runs out.

  • Golden Monkey

    

    This is an excellent single-ingredient tea! Definitely one of my favorites out of all the single-ingredient Adagio teas I've tried. It's balanced and a little sweet, perfect to set you up for a great day.

  • Honeybush Hazelnut

    

    This tea is quite nice and takes added flavors very well. Definitely a good cup for sipping on in bed with a good book, which was just what I did.

  • Jasmine Yin Hao

    

    I love this tea! One of my favorite Jasmine teas I've ever had. Light and fragrant but not weak.

  • PEACH

    

    Not my favorite peach-flavored tea. I felt like the peach flavor had this artificial taste to it that just didn't work all that well.

  • Thai Tea

    

    This is a smooth and easygoing tea, just not one I particularly enjoy. I would quite like this blend if not for the coconut, which is one of my least favorite flavors in general. However, if I even somewhat enjoyed the coconut element in this tea, I'd certainly drink it again.

  • Scottish Breakfast

    

    A standout British breakfast tea, smooth and unobtrusive. Would almost certainly take well to additional flavorings one may want to add.

  • Prince of Wales

    

    Not bad for Twinings. It's a solid black tea without much bitterness or edge to it. Quite smooth, though not too smooth that it's not a bracing cup. If brewed at 200° instead of boiling it's all the smoother.

  • Pu-erh Hazelberry

    

    I feel as though this tea doesn't really stand out among my collection. It's a safe bet for some easygoing comfort, but it's not gonna knock your socks off.

  • Vanilla Green

    

    Such a good tea! The vanilla kind of overpowers the green but this one definitely unseats Honeybush Vanilla as my favorite Adagio vanilla tea.

  • 40 Winks

    

    I will preface this review by stating that I take a nightly prescription medication, which I believe definitely affected my experience with this tea.

    I don't really mind the medicinal taste of this tea and rather quite enjoyed it, but it ended up making me feel tired without making me super sleepy. However, once I fell asleep, I was plagued by these feverish visions that washed over me every time I woke up in the middle of the night, which is completely uncharacteristic of my sleep pattern. I also experienced my first instance of sleep paralysis in which I tried calling out for my partner in fear but was only able to let out a squeak or two, unable to wake him up to comfort me.

    I was wholly disturbed by my experience with this tea and will refrain from drinking it again.

    My word of advice is to be extremely cautious when taking literally any other medication or substance that goes into effect while drinking this tea.

  • Pure Rooibos

    

    My first rooibos and hopefully one of my last. It tasted exactly like olives, which is super weird to me. Olives? That's just strange.

  • Lapsang Souchong

    

    The smokiness tastes so artificial that it's hard to enjoy the tea for what it is.

    EDIT: I've since learned I'm not a Lapsang Souchong fan of any sort but I stand by this review. This is a bad example of a tea steeped in tradition and it deserves better.

  • Green Tea with Mint

    

    Not a bad variant of green, but not my favorite The grassiness of many of Twining's greens is definitely present here.

  • Green Tea

    

    Grassy, especially compared to other green teas that I've tried. It's a good tea if you haven't had too many other greens.

  • 100% Pure Oolong

    

    This was the first oolong that I ever tasted, and it felt like it was missing something. I felt like it was an okay tea, but that it would benefit from some added little something. Not sure what that could be.

  • Lady Grey

    

    I wasn't a huge fan of this Grey. It's a little strange on the palate compared to Twining's other offerings. It's a little extravagant on the additional flavors but it's not terrible.

  • Darjeeling

    

    Definitely not a great representation of Darjeeling at large. Quite bitter and unappetizing. The astringency was off the charts!

  • Pure Peppermint

    

    Kind of like a pleasant punch in the face, if that makes sense. Quite strong, but not overpowering. I know many may prefer their peppermint much more on the stronger side but I enjoy this iteration as it is.

  • Organic Nightly Calm

    

    The flavors are nice together, but I don't really feel it was super effective at getting me to bed.

  • Lemon & Ginger

    

    Gotta agree with another reviewer here and say that the ginger definitely upstaged the lemon.

  • English Breakfast Lemon

    

    Tastes too much like Froot Loops for me to really get into.

  • English Breakfast

    

    Bagged English Breakfast just can't compete with the loose variety. This tea was a little lackluster in comparison to other varieties I've tried.

  • Nightly Calm

    

    I don't really feel like it made my nighttime routine any more effective, but it was a nice tea.

  • Irish Breakfast

    

    A little maltier than I typically like my teas, but altogether not bad.

  • Pure White

    

    You definitely need to steep this one longer than the instructions tell you to. I wish I had the ability to try my sample again, but having steeped it much longer.

  • Buttermint

    

    Holy cow, one of my favorite bagged teas! It's so smooth, though the vanilla doesn't dare overpower the mint, and vice versa. Delicious!

  • Honeybush, Mandarin & Orange

    

    Tasted like an orange punching you in the face. Take that how you will.

  • English Afternoon

    

    Much better and smoother than Twining's English Breakfast.

  • Earl Grey - Lavender

    

    I've never liked bagged Earl Grey (which led me to believe I didn't like any EGs at all) but this one is a bit better than the others. The lavender is nice.

  • English Breakfast Decaf

    

    I have to echo what the only other reviewer was saying: it's an okay tea, but the flavor's not really present.

  • Green Pomegranate, Raspberry & Strawberry

    

    One of a very select group of bagged teas I really enjoy. The fruitiness doesn't overpower the flavor of the leaves, which I often find is the case with most flavored teas.

  • Earl Grey Bravo

    

    I prefer Earl Grey Moonlight, but this tea is so bold and unapologetic that it really is a tea to behold.

  • Milky Way

    

    I never expected these flavors to meld so well! I will definitely be ordering some more in the future.

  • Earl Grey Green

    

    I tried this tea as part of Adagio's September CommuniTEA and was dazzled! This tea literally made me rethink my distaste for Earl Grey in general. I learned that the Earl Grey that I had tried in the past wasn't a proper representation of Earl Grey in general--though this is hardly a typical flavor combination--and taught me to love the flavor.

  • Earl Grey Moonlight

    

    This tea is like cuddling up by a fire in the cold winter months; extremely cozy and satisfying. I only recently realized that my dislike of Earl Grey tea was due to subpar teabags, so this discovery was entirely better than I ever imagined it could be!

  • Wenshan Mist Green

    

    Definitely an enjoyable cup! Very much enjoyed this addition to the CommuniTEA spread.

  • Aphrodite

    

    Not my favorite by a long shot. I've never been a huge fan of chocolate teas, and this is not exception.

  • 111th Birthday!

    

    Oof, not my favorite tea by a long shot. My pallate skews very far from chocolate teas, so this one was a no go for me.

  • Wuyi Ensemble

    

    One of the best plain black teas I've ever had. It's a shame that it's so expensive, but that's not gonna stop me.

  • Yunnan Gold

    

    I feel uncivilized with the way that I've never been super into black teas on their own, but this one was good. I enjoyed it but probably won't buy more when my single serve portion runs out. But who knows, maybe another cup will persuade me.

  • Cinnamon Apple Spice

    

    This tea is amazing! It's one of the only bagged teas I still drink after discovering loose teas. It's like a cozy fall afternoon and goes great with honey.

  • EARL GREY GREEN TEA BAGS

    

    Let me preface this by saying I much prefer Earl Grey Green to the traditional blend, but this makes one grassy cup. Adagio's EGG is leaps beyond this brand's.

  • CONSTANT COMMENT BLACK TEA BAGS

    

    This was the first hot tea I ever tried and it's also one of my favorites. One of the best bagged teas out there!

  • Citrus Mate

    

    I got this tea as part of the yerba mate sampler. I was looking forward to trying it, but this blend really blew me away! Adagio's mate brewing instructions lead to a mild cup, but the delicate nature of the mate melds well with the light citrus flavors.

  • Mocha Nut Mate

    

    This mate blend was okay, but only okay in my opinion. I picked up this tea in the mate sampler, and it was definitely my least favorite. I was excited to try it based solely on its appearance in the Parks and Rec Phraseology fandom blend, but that blend was much better than the sum of its parts. Not a bad mate, but not my favorite.

  • Toasted Mate

    

    This mate, in my opinion, straight up tastes like cardboard. Now, I was a strange child and enjoyed chewing on cardboard from time to time, so I'm very familiar with the taste.

    Is it more akin to coffee than Adagio's non-toasted mate? Absolutely. Am I using mate as a coffee substitute? Most definitely. Will I return to this variety of mate? Almost certainly not.

    I can admit that some pallates would find this enjoyable, and many of the reviews would agree with this sentiment, but it's not compatible with mine.

  • Yerba Mate

    

    I bought a yerba mate sampler as a way to curb my energy drink habit and reduce the amount of caffeine I consume, and I can honestly say I'm enjoying every cup! This mate is light, bright, and delicate in it's simplicity. It's cozy, but not so much that it makes you want to crawl back into bed to savor it. It's a nice on-the-go drink with a pleasant taste.

  • Alpine Trails

    

    It's pretty good, but not something I'd consistently reach for. I'm only a bidding tea enthusiast working on a shoestring budget, so I can't really justify spending 35¢ a cup on a tea I don't really love.

  • Spiced Mate

    

    One of my all-time favorite teas! It's a comfortable mid-point between the scents and smells of Christmas and my favorite bagged tea, Constant Comment. One of my favorite Adagio teas!

  • Jasmine Chun Hao

    

    Jasmine Chun Hao is a really nice floral, though I find it fairly strong. I prefer to mix it 1:1 with Jasmine Yin Hao than drink it alone.
