Hello. I am a veterinarian. I live in turkey in Giresun. Hazelnuts are growing up in this region. I want to do a project about hazelnut tea. I would like to consult about this issue. If you would like to be an adviser to me on this matter, please. Did you drink the nutcakes? do you like it? What is your idea?

This has a strong banana flavor. I never thought I'd ever drink banana tea. If Adagio came out with a peanut butter tea, the two would go together very well! I also tried with mixed with the maple oolong for a delicious breakfast treat.

You ever leave a tropical fruit salad in your fridge so long that its flavor kind of permeates everything in the fridge? Well this tastes like you left a glass of water next to the fruit salad. This might be the mildest fruit tisane yet. I left it steeping overnight to try to get as much flavor out, but all I got out of this tea was some pineapple flavored burps.
Jun 11th '18
This is some good stuff! The spice and fruit goes suprisingly well together. I used this to give myself a kick during a terrible cold.

I really wish Adagio would just crank up the peach flavor. With something called Peach Bellini I was really expecting to really really taste that peachy flavor. Instead it is just an afterthought. An essence of peach just gently lingering in my water. Oh well.

The fruity flavor of this was very mild. It reminded me a little of nectarines but the flavor was so mild, I probably won't order again.
Jun 11th '18
All I could taste was cinnamon with just a hint of fruit. I'm not sure why Adagio puts cinnamon in so many of their fruit blends lately.
Jun 11th '18
This was really good! I also tried it mixed with the Banana Nut Bread Honeybush. It's very comforting and goes great with breakfast.

I drank this cold, with just a little sweetener. Honestly, to me, it kind of tastes like cinnamon bubblegum. There's a hint of fruity bubblegum flavor, that is overwhelmed by cinnamon.
Dec 2nd '17
It tasted like watermelon candy. A little too unnatural for my tastes, but good as a cold tea.
Dec 1st '17
I liked the flavor, a sort of gingery/orange juice flavor. But the turmeric stained my brewer and my cup! Beware! If you enjoy this, you might want to dedicate something to the task.

Raspberry on the nose but not on the taste. While this smells like raspberry, there's absolutely no raspberry in the flavor. Still a good Matcha.
Mar 1st '17
Definitely smells more like cocoa than it tastes. I do get a hint of chocolate in the aftertaste, but upfront this just tastes like plain (good) Matcha. I wish the flavor was a little more pronounced, but I knew what I was getting into.
Mar 1st '17
Took a few tries before I managed to get this to turn out right, but now that I have I can't wait to dive into the other Matcha teas!
Mar 1st '17
I could taste a hint of fruitiness in this, but I found that I liked the smell, texture, and appearance more than the taste which -while good- I didn't get any of the chocolatey notes that others seem to have had. Instead this was just a very nice black tea.
Mar 1st '17
Adagio's description for this tea is spot-on. Peachy and Mineraly. I brewed a big pot of this and stretched it over the day and couldn't help but find myself slipping into a meditative state after each cup. Alas, I haven't seen Adagio carry the 3oz bags in a long time and I'm afraid this may disappear.
Mar 1st '17
Best chocolate tea I've ever had. It will replace your hot-chocolate. I ordered a 3oz bag and it was gone before I even realized it.
Mar 1st '17
I wanted to like this because I love the taste of apricot, but I couldn't get past a weird menthol-tobacco aftertaste.
Mar 1st '17
Really good. 'Mineral' taste is a good description for this tea.
Mar 1st '17
One of the spices in this tasted very overpowering, and I think it was the ginger. I wasn't a fan of this tea, but my sister loved it so I gave her the sample.
Dec 31st '16
I wish the pineapple flavor of this was much stronger. The coconut seems to be the most prominent flavor in this brew, which some people loved. For me, I don't really like the coconut flavor in tea and wish that it wasn't so strong in this blend.
Dec 31st '16
Adagio, thank you for making this limited edition tea available on the west coast! This tea reminds me of a mulled apple cider - but a little light on the apple. I drink so much mulled apple cider every winter that maybe this time, for once, I will have a healthier alternative! The cinnamon flavor is a bit strong, and I might have to pair it with another tea to tone it down a notch, but I hope this tea comes around again every year! Edit: I think that either everything kept settling to the bottom, or my tea went bad very fast. The last few tablespoons of this gave me a terrible stomach-ache and had a very overwhelming cinnamon-stick flavor.
Dec 31st '16
This is a really good plain black tea. Compared to the Assam tea, this is much closer to what I've always imagined the quintessential 'black tea' flavor to be. As someone who isn't a big coconut fan... this one actually goes really well with some coconut flavor.
Dec 31st '16
The ginger was a bit strong in this one. Was okay when mixed with some vanilla black tea, but I couldn't enjoy it on its own.
Dec 31st '16
I know some people liked this tea, but I thought the maple candy flavor was a bit too strong. Even a small amount of sweetener greatly amplified the maple flavor and overwhelmed any hint of a tart apple.
Dec 31st '16
This earl grey is a little strong for me, but I do like the orangey flavor. I cut it with some orange black tea and it was very good. Adagio earl greys seem to hit a little heavy on the bergamot side of things. I may have just gotten used to low quality earl grey's all my life.
Dec 31st '16
I like the mango flavor of this one a lot more than the mango black tea. The mango flavor came through strong on the first cup, still had some flavor in the second brew. I am glad that this tea packs such a punch.
Dec 31st '16
This tea doesn't taste like tangerine to me. It's not bad, but it's just a very subtle tartness that made me keep wondering if I had grabbed the right tea.
Dec 31st '16
This is a very special vanilla. The description is spot on. It reminds me of a sugar cookie, or a vanilla cake. There is a slight hint of doughiness to this vanilla and it goes great paired with almost anything.
Dec 7th '16
I am not a chai fan, but this one won me over. I am always afraid the anise or the ginger will overpower everything else in the tea, but this one strikes a good balance and will be great to enjoy during the winter. Makes me a little more interesting in trying other Chais.
Dec 7th '16
This is another really good mint tea. The mint is strong in smell but not on the tongue, which is actually quite soothing. This goes really well with the cocomint green.
Dec 7th '16
While I think this has to be either my number 1 or number 2 mint tea flavor, I don't know if the chocolate pairs well with this green tea. I like to mix this with peppermint or the candy cane tea to give it a bit more of a punch.
Dec 7th '16
I prefer this one over the raspberry tea. It tastes good hot or cold and mixes well with other flavors. This has been a good one to enjoy slowly and ponder over.
Dec 7th '16
I think the raspberry flavor in this comes a little too close to tasting artificial, however the green tea is flavorful and brings it home. Tastes better fresh and hot than it does cold.
Dec 7th '16
If you're a fan of 'sleepy time' teas, then you'll love this.
Dec 7th '16
It really does taste like cocoa pebbles. If you're not a yerba mate fan, give this one a try anyway. It will impress you, and it will be a great alternative to hot cocoa.
Dec 7th '16
This tastes like Lime Jello! I'm so sad that this isn't year-round or available on the west coast. I had to fly all the way to Maine to get it! I shared it with my family and it was a hit. My dad, who isn't a tea drinker at all, still talks about the limey tea he had.
Dec 7th '16
Lemon balm is a great thing to sneak into any night-time decaf tea. It is very soothing.
Dec 7th '16
Of all of these flavors Berry Blast and Raspberry patch are the best! This is a great way to sample four flavors and get a good flavor profile of Adagio's fruitier herbals. And if you're like me, you'll end up ordering lots and lots of Raspberry Patch...

This grapefruit is really bitter. It pairs okay with lemongrass, which gives it some points back.
Oct 22nd '16
This is probably my favorite mint tea. It has an almost 'buttermint' flavor to it. Very smooth and very minty.
Oct 22nd '16
This really does taste like canned cranberry. It's crazy! Going to need to re-order this to have in the fall!
Oct 22nd '16
I like this one more than the almond oolong. This one seemed less potent, and slightly nuttier. I think it's because it was paired with a good black tea.
Oct 1st '16
I need this in my life every day. Smooth, creamy, caramely, delicious. Now my favorite tea to drink straight, hot, cold, sweet, unsweetened, or mixed with other teas. Incredible. This should be a staple.
Sep 14th '16
The hazelnut in this is strong! Nothing like your mama's hazelnut coffee. A little strong for my tastes, but it was really good when mixed with other teas. I know lot of hazelnut lovers though, and I know they'll love it.
Sep 14th '16
This had a strong 'bubblegum' flavor for some reason. Did not remind me of hibiscus. It was good mixed with the Berry Creme Compote and iced, but hot... well... not my cup of tea.
Sep 14th '16
I never got a chance to try this one! I brewed up a big jug and next thing I knew the family had polished it off! One family member swears it was the best tea he ever had though, and asked for more for Christmas!
