About Adagio Teas

Adagio Teas is a tea company based in Elmwood Park, NJ. Adagio has a broad selection of loose teas, which they mostly sell online, but the company recently opened up three retail stores in the Chicagoland area. Adagio carries black, green, white, and oolongs, as well as many flavored teas, blends, and rooibos and herbal teas as well.

The company also sells Anteadote, a line of unsweetened bottled teas. Adagio also pioneered an innovative type of tea infuser or teapot, called IngenuiTEA, which allows you to see the leaf brewing, and pours through the bottom, ideal for pouring directly into a mug.

Adagio allows customers to create and order custom blends of any of their teas. Their website also sells teapots, kettles, accessories, and a few other tea-related items.

Adagio Teas has a major web presence and also runs TeaMap, a tearoom directory, TeaChat, a tea forum site, and TeaMuse, a monthly newsletter. Adagio's website is interactive and allows customers to review their teas.

Picture of Ti Kuan Yin (Oolong Goddess)

I wrote a review of this before, but I accidentally deleted it while trying to edit it. Now that I've had a few better examples of Tieguanyin, I don't think this is as good as I initially thought. It's fairly mediocre, actually, with little to distinguish it from other oolongs on the lighter but not quite green end. Br...

I'm having a hard time rating this tea. It smelled pretty bad to me, like burnt pine. I guess that's the smokiness. The flavor was nicely earthy and slightly chocolaty with the occasional subtle fruit note. I enjoyed the flavor, but hated the aroma. I always knew it was done brewing and would taste the way I liked it w...

Guizhou Twist

Style: Green Tea – Region: Guizhou, China
May. 6th, 2018

This is an unusually fruity green tea. The dry leaves have a strong floral and stone fruit aroma. The first time I tried it I used too much tea and brewed it for too long, and the result was overly sweet and astringent. The second time I used a little less tea and brewed it for around 1:40, resulting in a more complex ...

Gunpowder

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China
May. 5th, 2018

Gunpowder isn’t my favorite tea, so my rating may not be entirely fair. That said, I like this tea. It’s smoky and a little vegetal. Full-bodied and smooth. I wouldn’t drink it every day, but it’s a nice change of pace. If you like strong and smoky green teas, you might like it better.

I can’t compare...

Irish Breakfast

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend
Feb. 7th, 2018

Adagio's Irish Breakfast is a well-priced aromatic blend that goes best with a bit of milk. I disagree with the company's "malty" descriptor. The dry leaf has a twangy jammy aroma that is very pleasant. An overall solid daily tea.
