It's a bit more savory than Irish Breakfast and, somehow, a slightly finer experience overall. The leaves are beautiful, the brewed tea is beautiful, the aroma is lovely. I recommend it

I was a tiny bit concerned from the few critical reviews, and a little more when I first cracked open the bag and smelled the very strong creme brulee scent, but this is super delightful. The gunpowder green tea really is there as an important flavor. The first steeping is mostly dessert-sweet brulee, but the green tea actually stands up to the subsequent steepings, so the brulee flavor ends up in the background to the slightly savory and smoky gunpowder by the third brew. I'm into it.

Okay, yea, this one is very good. I wish they made a decaf for evening drinking, or maybe a chestnut honeybush or something. It is very roasty and nutty and pretty mapley. I drink it black, sometimes with honey. Recommended.

I'm into it. I enjoy coconut, and the lemongrass is a welcome addition as well. Masala chai will probably always be bae, but this is a very welcome addition. I like to brew chai teas strong on the stove top with plenty of honey and milk. It's not an everyday thing, but it's a special indulgence.

This one disappointed me. People be saying that it 'doesn't taste enough like pumpkin' or tastes like a normal spiced tea, but to me it had a rather strange taste that was not like spices and not like pumpkin and not very good. Not awful, but not something I'm gonna be brewing much. It can be salvaged by mixing with masala chai, but the masala chai is better on its own. Fortunately, my roommate likes it okay.

Best chai tea I've ever found personally. I brew it on the stove and added heated milk and sugar or honey. Great pot of tea to savor in the afternoon. I like the heat from the ginger particularly.

To be honest, I'm not a huge white tea person. But it's the peach flavor that didn't work for me here. It smells like peach ring candy, but it doesn't brew up to be as juicy and sweet as the smell suggests - not as sweet-seeming as a jasmine tea I have, for example. And I'm not sure that I want slightly grassy white tea to taste like peach ring candy anyway.

This tea is good, but I preferred the EG Moonlight because the creme flavor softens the harshness of the orange/citrus flavor. The reason why I deducted a star is really that I find that I have to mix both EGs with black tea (Irish Breakfast) if I want any actual tea flavor. Maybe the flavoring is too strong.

I like this earl grey for making pots of sweetened milky earl grey in the afternoon. Not a daily tea for me. I found the EG Bravo to be a bit too much on the orange-like flavor. However, I'm finding that I usually need to mix Adagio's flavored teas with Irish Breakfast (or another tea) if I want to get much actual tea flavor, so that is what I recommend (and why I only gave it four stars).

This tea is good. I got it when it was on sale and I'm glad that I did. It's very low caffeine and suitable for evening drinking, it's smokey and has a lot of orange flavor. Actually, the mixture of hazelnut, orange, and smoke smell makes me think of popcorn a little bit, but I might be alone in that. I could have done with less orange, more hazelnut. For a tea that is supposed to taste like a bonfire, it's great. However, most evenings I don't feel like drinking a bonfire. But really, embrace the season. It's not perfect, but it's nice.

The reason I tried this tea is because the reviews were good, it wasn't terribly expensive, and I was having a tea person identity crisis because I realized that the only teas I was seeking out/had brought with me when I downsized and moved to another state were flavored teas. I mean, 'legitimate' flavored teas, to a degree. Earl greys and jasmines are usually my favorites, and I love a good rose tea. But I didn't have any non-flavored teas and I wasn't actively seeking them out because they often let me down and they usually aren't my favorite anyway. Well... This one's really good ok. It has a beautiful dark amber color when brewed and wonderful honey notes that I always hope for and often don't receive in breakfast teas. I've started my day with a cup every day since I received my order. A smidgen of good dark honey compliments the flavor beautifully, but it honestly doesn't need it once you figure out your preferred brewing method (in my experience). It stands up to second steepings well, but what I've taken to doing is adding bits of flavored coffees for subsequent brews. Brew a lovely morning cup of Irish breakfast, enjoy, add a bit of summer rose or early grey to the second steeping, enjoy, maybe add another that would compliment the first flavor, enjoy. It varies depending on my mood. But for pairing with flavored teas or just drinking on its own, this is ultra lovely very nice A

Okay, okay, this is just a decaf ceylon flavored like strawberry and then I put it in hot water to make the water taste like ceylon and strawberry, right? I wasn't expecting much. In fact, I got this as a free bonus for sharing on facebook. But I have become very, very fond of it for evening drinking. Ideally, mix it with a bit of Cream flavored tea and add a little squirt of sweetened condensed milk (it's in the baking aisle, comes in cans, but sometimes also comes in squeeze bottles you can store in the fridge). It's like - well, I hesitate to give an inflated idea of it, because I wouldn't want to disappoint anyone. It *reminds* me of Japanese strawberry milk candies, but much less sweet, less intense, and more like flavored hot water with stuff in it. But it's a really nice cuppa as I wind down for the night. I think... I think I'll be getting myself a 3 oz when I run out.
