When Life Gives You Lemons Add Mint & Ginger from Trader Joe's

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
May. 13th, 2019

The citrus and peppermint work surprisingly well to create a bright cup. The orange and lemon blend in a way that creates a broad citrus experience without either one dominating. The second cup I made was basically identical to the first, which is impressive. All in all, this is a decent tea!

May. 12th, 2019

This tea is tart in a way I like but not actually strong enough. The hibiscus is a strong element in this one. I like it, but I’d like it more if the combination of flavors was more intense. This is not a bad tasting tea at all, in my opinion, but it’s weak considered to similar teas I’ve tried.

Raja Oolong Chai from Adagio Teas

Oct. 20th, 2018

Mmmmmm, I'm liking this tea. It's a nice mixtures of spicy flavors that works well with the oolong base. I've seen comparisons of this tea with Teavana's Maharaja Oolong Chai, but I was never a huge fan of that tea. This one strikes me as more flavorful and balanced. Though I think I prefer it on its own, it also holds...

Scottish Breakfast from Adagio Teas

Style: Scottish Breakfast – Region: Blend

84 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 26th, 2018

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 from Adagio Teas

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

Aug. 19th, 2018

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. :-)

Oct. 11th, 2017

I got this on sale and, as of today, it's still on the sale price on their website. Hence, this one gets a better "value" rating from me than most Teavana teas.

I love the aroma of this tea. I always enjoy lavender, and the caramel adds just the right kind of sweetness. In fact, when I noticed the caramel bits in th...

Sep. 13th, 2017

This is a wonderful tea. Both the dry leaf and the brewed tea smell amazing. The coconut really comes out. The balance of sweetness with the black tea flavor is very smooth. It'd be possible to add sugar or honey, but it's plenty sweet enough without it. There seems to be some sort of sweet spice in the aroma, but that...

Sep. 9th, 2017

The hint of banana flavor really makes this tea. I love it. It's great for when I'm craving something a bit fruity and a little sweet but distinctly caffeinated. The flavors blend very well, and the aroma is comforting.

The tea itself is solid quality loose leaf. I bought this tea (and a couple others) at a conventi...

Mar. 10th, 2017

This is a delicious tea. I got it as a free sample with an Adagio order I made some time ago. It's meant to be a "gift" tea, so unlike most of their teas the only size appears to be 4 ounces. That's annoying to me, as I enjoy the ability to get small samples from Adagio to try what I like first.

It comes in a cute ...

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 24th, 2017

I like this herbal tea. The rooibos is solid and smooth. The lemon blends well with it, though fairly subtle. The stronger flavor, which I notice after each sip, is of marshmallow. Hence, it's more sweet than citrusy. It's able to get a couple of quite good cups.

This is a solid herbal tea. I like the mix of flavors with the rooibos, though orange isn't my favorite flavor to have in a hot tea. For this reason, other flavor mixes work better for me. This is fruity, floral, sweet, and refreshing.

The flavor is robust for the first cup and it infuses quickly. It's quite pleasant in holiday fashion, though not my favorite flavor. There is both spiciness and sweetness to it.

This is a lovely, robust tea with a pleasant sweetness. It would make a solid substitute for coffee lovers with a moderate sweet tooth. I could see myself drinking this very regularly.

Mmmmmm, now this is tea! If this was available loose leaf, it'd be perfect. The smell is delicious and the flavor is perfect -- a lovely balance between the spices and the rooibos. It's good on its own, but a cup of this is amazing with just a pinch or two of stevia added. It adds a smooth sweetness without overpowerin...

Oct. 19th, 2016

This solidly fruity, moderately robust tea isn't bitter or overly tart and has a pleasant juiciness. It's very inexpensive, so if you like fruit teas at all it's worth a shot. Like other Twinings tea bags, it infuses quickly but is good for only one cup. Overall, I like it, but it'd be much better if done loose leaf --...

I found packs of these in the house we moved into. The ginger is definitely most notable in the aroma before it's brewed, but I still taste it in the drink. It's flavor is strong but not potent, and very blended. No individual flavor really stands out. It has a rather creamy feel.

I don't know how effective probioti...

As someone very into fruity teas, I love this one. It's noticeably tart in a solidly pleasant way. Great when I'm in the mood for a strong caffeine free tea. If you like tropical herbal teas, this one is worth a shot.

Not bad for bagged Earl Grey. I added half and half, which mixed well. The flavor was solid without being bitter. Others commented that it IS better, so maybe the half and half I added helped with that?

Nov. 24th, 2015

This tea wasn't the worst, but it wasn't really for me. The aroma was better than the flavor. It's possible I over-steeped it, as it went a bit bitter in a distinctively green tea fashion. Basically, I like the idea of this tea better than its execution.

Tart, sweet, and fruity, this is a solid tea in my book. Its flavor is robust, so it's definitely for when you want something intense. I like it as a peppy breakfast tea when I'm not in the mood for a chai or other flavored black tea. Unfortunately, the tea bag didn't hold up to a second steep at all.

Though I can taste the chocolate, it's cardamom that comes through as the strongest flavor. I like cardamom, but it may be too much for some people. Weird, since i don't see that spice listed. Still, the aroma is spicy and pleasant.

A solid pumpkin spice tea. It has a distinct creaminess that I alternately like and then feel is a bit much or slightly off. It works best with an extra amount of tea.

It'd get a better rating if it was more affordable, but it's worth trying.

The smell of this tea is amazing, with a very strong almond vibe. The flavor picks up the black tea a bit too much for me, but I would imagine that big fans of black tea would find it well balanced. I don't detect a lot of vanilla, but it does seem to impart a sweetness.

In brief, it's great for what it is, but it'...

A great herbal tea when you crave something tart. I love its strong fruitiness. The aroma has a floral accent as well. An excellent cup as far as I'm concerned. :-)

I had it iced from a coffee shop. Because it was cold I drank it very quickly. It was wonderfully refreshing.

Zesty! Not as complex or interesting as it could be, but quite nice. Then lemon and rooibos flavors go well together. Pricier than what I would like, but a nicely refreshing blend with a nice aroma.
