Hi everyone! I received my teas from Adagio all in good time and though it took me a while to find days to brew each of them and have a taste, I’ve got it all down now and here’s a quick review! Do note that I am by far NOT a tea connoisseur (as much as I’d like to be) and that I created these signature blends for fun. It’s best to read up on the description of each tea in the ingredients and get an idea how it might taste for yourself.
You can’t go wrong with this tea. It’s more on the safe side of blends and tastes like an Oolong tea with a minty feel. It was supposed to be reminiscent of Dur’s mint cigarette. I didn’t think I would be a fan of this but the more sips I had, the more I ended up liking it. It’s a really relaxing tea to have during anytime of the day and gives a really “cleansing” feel.
Definitely my favorite by far. It’s a bit on the sour side if you just have it plain but the smell is amazing (like mangoes and everything tropical and delicious). I prefer it cold with fresh lemon juice, lemon slices, and some sugar, sweetener, or agave nectar. Let it chill in the fridge for a few hours in a big container and it makes the PERFECT iced tea. I would recommend this one for people who aren’t much of a tea fan but love cold, tangy beverages.
Oh gosh, this one. I have very mixed feelings about this one. I made it so it would be a substitute for coffee, but the Assam tea I put in made it way too strong with that strange, pungent Assam flavor. The cinnamon helped balance it out a bit, but the Assam was just too strong that I had to change out the ingredients so it was more drinkable. LOL. I replaced the Assam tea with Chai teas. It’s still a caffeinated spiced tea, only the ingredients now make it a delicious spiced dessert drink instead of… whatever it was before.
Similar to the Tizona tea blend in the sense that it would make a really great iced tea. Only with this one, it tastes great hot too. It’s tangy, sweet, and spiced at the same time, though not as much as the Colada one. It’s also not as rich as the Colada tea, but it’s still caffeinated and will wake you up, only in a more subtle fashion. It has a refreshing taste that surprised me and the smell is great. Even my mom walked in and asked me what I was brewing (and she’s one of those who strictly drink Oolong and green teas).
