User's reviews

  • 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.

  • Green Tea Chai tea bags

    

    While I'm always up for trying unusual combinations, these definitely didn't belong together.

  • Earl Grey Loose Tea

    

    Not my favorite Earl Grey--Adagio takes that honor by far--but this one's pretty good.

  • EARL GREY

    

    It's a good Earl Grey, but it's not quite as good as the loose variety, naturally.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Darjeeling

    

    Definitely not a great representation of Darjeeling at large. Quite bitter and unappetizing.

  • Pure Peppermint

    

    Kind of like a pleasant punch in the face, if that makes sense. Quite strong, but not overpowering.

  • 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.
