Please, please, please bring back the Fushigi Yuugi teas! Tasuki and Chichiri were my go-tos this time of year. I'm heartbroken they're gone.

Hello, I'm not sure if you're even active here anymore or not but I really wanted to ask if there is any way you can bring back the Battle Lover Vesta blend. I bought a small amount a few years ago and I really loved it. I wasn't able to buy more because I never had the money for it. Now I do. I'd do a custom blend, but it doesn't seem to let me add more than one accent. If you can't bring it back I completely understand. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

This would be a 5-star review if there was a 3-minute 212-degree option, but I find myself steeping some of my black teas on the 'oolong' setting. Otherwise it works really well and is great to keep at my desk at work all day.

A nice, solid black tea for a morning cup. Strong enough to give me that morning boost but a bit smoother than the Irish Breakfast.

This is one of my favorite teas at Adagio. The lemon is nice and smooth without being too sweet, and the flowers add a nice subtle flavor that's hard to put my finger on. If you like lemon, don't miss this when it's available!

This might be my new go-to breakfast blend. The assam leaves it full-bodied, while the other teas give it a bright, crisp finish. I accidentally oversteeped this one a bit and it was still an excellent cup.

This is one of my go-to teas I always keep on hand. Some mornings I just don't feel like flavored teas, and this is a well-rounded basic black tea with enough kick to get me going. A little more body than Ceylon, but without the malty richness of some black teas. No frills, but this hits the spot when something simple is what I really want.

I bought this as an option for iced tea for my husband, who needs decaf in the evenings. Usually he just goes for plain Ceylon, but this is something a little different. It makes a great iced tea, with the orange coming through but not overpowering.

It's just a little fruity for my personal taste, but if you like white tea and herbal fruit tisanes, this is a good combination of the two. I prefer to add a little pinch of sugar to round off some of the tart fruitness.

One of my favorite afternoon teas. I love earl grey cream blends, and this one is right up there among my faves. The little touch of vanilla is nice, too, just a hint of sweet without being too overpowering or artificial.

I do think decaf teas usually seem just a touch 'flat' compared to their caffeinated cousins, but this is still a great option for evenings when I need to avoid caffeine. Adagio's decaf teas don't have that odd aftertaste that some other brands have, and this is an all-around good earl grey, if not quite as robust as the caffeinated version. I do try to keep a close eye on the time while steeping, as this one can get a little bitter if I oversteep.

I bought this as a sampler to share at work with co-workers a bit intimidated with loose-leaf tea. It's a great 'starter pack', with flavors that are easily recognizable and not too intimidating for people new to tea.

A really refreshing herbal tea that's one of my favorite iced decaf options. It also mixes well with ceylon if you're looking to add a bit more oomph to it. I prefer a pinch of sugar with it, but it doesn't have quite as much natural tartness as some of Adagio's other herbal teas (like Blood Orange or Sour Apple).

I don't actually have much experience with preparing matcha on my own before, but this seems comparable to drinks I've had from local coffee shops. I also made mochi using this matcha and it was absolutely delicious! I actually intend to use this for cooking more than drinking, and it works great for that!

This is the go-to blend for my husband and myself when we want a late-night cup without any caffeine. It's excellent when you're feeling a little under the weather, and does well with a little honey.

If you're looking for a punchy, intense lemon flavor, this might not be the tea for you. But I personally love that the flavor is mild - it makes for a nice cup of black tea with just a touch of lemon juice and no added sweetness. I think it would do well with sugar or honey if you want to add a sweet note, but this is perfect as-is, just a clean, crisp tea. I think this would probably be delicious as an iced tea.

This is a new favorite when I want a simple black tea - smooth and mild, with a well-rounded flavor that's not quite as earthy as pu erh, not as rich as assam, but not as savory/mineral-tasting as Yunnan Jig.

If you like teas with a more mineral note, this is a solid choice. I don't get the chocolate overtones as much as others seem to, as they're really faint to me. I get more of the mineral and smoky notes, myself. But it's a decent crisp black tea leaning toward the savory end of the spectrum, and makes a decent morning tea when I want something with a little less body than an assam and smoother than Irish breakfast. I think I prefer the Yunnan teas a little more, but this is still an all-around tasty tea. It can get bitter if oversteeped though, so it's good to keep a close eye on it when brewing.

This is basically exactly what I expected - the flavors of ginger and peach blend nicely, and remind me of a peach cobbler. It's not too cloyingly-sweet, and actually does really well with a pinch of sugar and a bit of milk.

A solid earl grey tea, smooth and with a good balance of bergamot.
