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.

Almond Oolong

Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa
Sep. 20th, 2018

This has turned out a surprise favorite. The aroma of the dry leaf is of fairly intense almond extract. After brewing, the almond aroma is still strong but a bit more blended and muted. The oolong and almond flavors work very nicely together. The tea also does pretty well with a second steeping. I may get this one in m...

Picture of Formosa Oolong (Oolong #8)

I really enjoyed this tea. It reminded me of restaurant oolongs, except with more complexity and less astringency. It resteeps well, too. It isn't my favorite oolong, but it's a solid example of its type.

This is a solid breakfast tea. I’m often not into plain black teas — especially of the “breakfast” variety. They often come off as too bitter or astringent. This tea, however, is smooth with a nice complexity. I like it a bit more than Adagio’s Irish breakfast. As of this review, I’ve never tried their Engl...

Irish Breakfast

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

I haven’t tried a lot of Irish breakfast teas, but I like this one. It has a very smooth quality. It’s caffeine isn’t actually too intense, and it doesn’t turn bitter easily the way some black teas can. This is a solid breakfast tea, I think. :-)

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...
