Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: ?????

82 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 12th, 2019

This tea is pleasant, especially with a little milk added. (Note: I recommend warming the milk in the microwave briefly and pouring the hot water into it when making tea.) There’s a distinct but not entirely unpleasant sharpness to this tea that is improved with the milk, though it can still be enjoyed plain. The spi...

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!

Pomegranate White Tea from Trader Joe's

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.

Feb. 8th, 2019

I really like this tea! It’s a delightful sort of spicy with hints of sweetness, even without sweetener. I don’t always enjoy orange flavor in tea, but in this case it blends nicely with the spices, the main one of which is cinnamon with a bit of cardamom. Overall, I agree that it is reminiscent of red hots. It als...

Ginseng Green from Adagio Teas

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 29th, 2018

I wasn't sure whether I would like this one or not, but I found it delightfully refreshing. The ginseng gives the tea a bright yet herbaceous flavor. The light feeling that the tea imparts is quite nice. I'm glad I tried this one.

I didn't add any creamer or sweetener to this tea.

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...

Oct. 7th, 2018

I really enjoyed this tea! The aroma of maple is strong both in the dry leaf and the brewed cup. One should definitely try this tea without a sweetener first, as I think it's already almost dessert-like in its sweetness. But that sweet maple flavor doesn't taste cloying or excessive. It's a great tea for when you might...

I really enjoy the coconut and spices in this tea. The flavors are strong yet blend well, and the tea doesn't go bitter with brewing. The aroma of the dry tea is especially strong. The tea resteeps well, though the flavors are mellowed by repeated brewing. This tastes good both with and without honey added.

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...

Sticking my nose into the bag, I found the aroma of the dry tea pleasant and strong. The main notes were of cinnamon, hazelnut, and chocolate. After brewing (at 200 F for 4 minutes) , those scents were more muted and subtle notes of graham cracker and campfire picked up.

The taste and aroma strike me as well blended...

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 ...

Feb. 25th, 2017

I prefer peppermint over spearmint but wasn't sure how well it would go with black tea, so I was cautiously optimistic about this tea. It turned out to be quite nice -- subtle yet smooth mint flavor blended into a solid black tea. It wasn't bitter at all. The flavor was robust enough for a solid two cups. The third cup...

I really like the slightly lemon-citrus smell of the dry leaf. It got me quite excited about trying this one. The lemon flavor is fairly subtle in this, but it's well blended. It tastes like a quality version of what I've seen called Lady Gray tea before. Certainly I would prefer this over most Earl Gray's I've tried, ...

This is a lovely tea with a pleasing balance between the tea and the cinnamon flavors. I tend to prefer my spiced tea to have more than one spice for flavoring, but this is quite well done. Though it could be used to make a latte with sweetener and milk, I like it best straight. It'd be great at breakfast or anytime so...

Jan. 20th, 2017

This is a lovely tea. The pomegranate flavor is delicate and blends well with the white tea. It holds up well to multiple steepings, each time making a cup of golden-colored tea. Though I generally prefer fruit teas where the fruit element is more robust, this is a very smooth, soothing drink. So far, this is the most ...

Jan. 11th, 2017

This is a very nice pure tea. The osmanthus flowers are a nice complement, but it's the oolong tea that shines. Heads up: the tea expands a *lot* in water, so use a smaller scoop than normal --- maybe a half size? Also, it resteeps very well.

This is an excellent floral-flavored green tea. The flavors blend beautifully and smoothly. For my second cup, I added a bit of honey, which managed to enhance the flavor without dominating it. Wonderfully sweet!

If you like floral teas (such as jasmine green teas), this is definitely one to try. Lavender and rose a...

This is a solid black tea. People who enjoy lightly flavored, high quality black teas should like this one. The ginger is quite subtle -- the tea aroma and flavor dominate -- but the ginger came through more for the second cup. The tea makes multiple infusions quite nicely.

I *really* love this tea. It's rare I find a flavored white tea that I enjoy, but this one is simply great. The tea is smooth and soothing, the peach flavor tastes natural and nuanced, and they blend together seamlessly. The leaves are high quality, too.

I tried this tea and several others in the store before I boug...

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 tea is unique and delicious when you're in the mood for something robust and fruity with a spicy kick. The tea pieces are pretty small (but not dust), so it infuses quickly. I steeped this for several minutes and it didn't turn bitter at all, which is excellent.

I really like this tea.

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.
