Hi! The Lapsang is still growing on me. .) It tasted a lot less overpowering once I put in some sugar. I think it's good, and the smokey is really perfect for the character, really. And the Thalia tea? OMG, amazing. I'm buying the 5oz tin on my next order. :)

It's perfectly all right about Nico. :) My daughter loved it, so it went to good use. Besides, her taking the Nico means she keeps her hands out of what's left of my Thalia. :D

Your blends look awesome, I wish I wasn't allergic to mango or I would be all over the Mermaid Lagoon!

Didn't taste how I expected it to, but it's still amazing! Really soft and rather light for a black tea. Has a natural creamy smoothness. I sweeten it with stevia.

One time this korean acupuncturist gave me a plastic bag of ginseng tea. It was gross and disgusting, and I'm so glad I gave loose leaf ginseng a try! It really is good, even better when mixed half and half with peppermint.

gave this as a present to a friend- she loves it :)

I'm giving this an okay because even though I didn't like it, my sister did. She said it smelled like red hots (which it did) and I'm guessing she enjoyed it because she always dumps a ton of sugar in her tea. However, it made me sick. I was already feeling a little nauseous that day, and this tea just heightened that. I'm glad I only got a sample.

Got the Teatox for my mom as a Christmas present- she likes it! Not as naturally sweet as she would like it, actually a little bitter, but with some honey it's perfectly fine.

One of my favorite chais that I've tried from adagio. subtler and not as in-your-face as the masala. The coconut isn't as prominent as I'd hoped it would be, but still there nonetheless. Because of the lemongrass component, it's not good for more than one steeping.

Wonderful fall tea- nutty and creamy with just a bit of tang. Seems like it would blend well.

I gave this as a gift to a friend, and she thinks it's amazing! She told me it tastes like warm sugar cookies with a hint of licorice.

I've been wanting to get a personalized sample for a long time, and I finally did it! The tin is a lot larger than I had envisioned it being, and the wrap around design is gorgeous. The tea inside (white peach tea bags) is just as great and has become one of my favorites.

Cinderella: warm with a hint of spice. very soft and 'pumpkiny'. fav out of the 3 Snow White: ehh. maybe I made it too weak?? soft mouth feel but not a lot going on. Sleeping Beauty: same. basically the same as snow white but no apples.

Perfect for fall! This tea is lovely hot or iced and isn't as tart as I thought it would be- although the leaves smell like a jolly rancher.

This tea, man. Oh my word, let me tell you about this tea. It's a beautiful minty blend with a little bit of earthiness and rooibos sweetness. Wonderfully calming, one of my favorite bedtime teas.

I always thought that I couldn't make greens bc I don't have a high tech water boiler thing. However, this tea is really flexible! I poured the first cup after 2 minutes in 212 degree water and added 1 tsp sugar, but left the tea leaves in the pot and poured the second after about 4 minutes with 2 tsp sugar. Both cups were excellent and so delicious! The chocolate and mint flavorings are almost peppermint bark like. Good for 4 steepings!

Best purchase I've ever made from Adagio! The purple color is not as dark and matte as it seems in the picture, it's actually a lighter color with white 'worn' spots around the spout, handle, etc. The tea basket is so handy, plenty roomy enough for oolongs or greens. Makes about 2 normal mugs, 1 super large mug, or 3/4 little tea cups.

smells like spearmint gum in the bag (my favorite!) I might have made it a little weak...whatevs, it's still good! A minty fresh taste that lingers on your tongue. I have yet to try it iced, but I'm sure it's fantastic! EDIT: oh man. so great when iced. i used up a fair amount of my sample (7-8 tsp) making a quart or so of iced spearmint and I am not regretting it one bit. So good.

When I opened the bag, it smelled like wet dirt. However, when steeped, the smell mellows out- and it's still good after the 3rd steeping! In fact, I'd say it actually gets better. Great with some brown sugar.

the minute i got my shipment i opened this bag and stuck my head inside. smells fantastic! and excellent iced :)

Somehow, I was under the impression that these would quickly dissolve in my tea. They did, but a lot slower than I thought they would, leaving me to remedy the situation with honey. By the time they did completely dissolve, I was left with a cup of extremely sweet tea- not a completely bad thing, since I was drinking Valentine's. Will definitely try again, though- They probably would've worked better if I hadn't been so stupid!

My entire shipment of tea smells like chocolate and strawberries because of this one tiny sample! (not that I'm complaining of course, it smells wonderful) When I took my first sip, I wasn't too sure... the taste was a little weak. However, as the tea cooled down, the taste grew stronger- It's so delicious I'm going to have to make myself another pot!

efinitely my new bedtime tea! When steeped, it becomes like hot apple cider, warming you from the inside out, yet calming at the same time.

This tea is fantastic- a deep berry flavor with a soft sweetness that a little bit of honey can bring out. The deep red color is vibrant and may be one of my favorite things about this tea.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this tea is the best I've ever had! It's my go to tea for anytime of the day, because I don't have to worry about the caffeine. Be careful not to steep it too long or it will turn bitter, but if done right your tea should be rich, dark, and smooth with a strong vanilla scent. I'm going to have to buy a bigger bag soon to replace my quickly disappearing sample!

I LOVE these filters! I was worried about the tea falling out at first, but just fold the top over twice and you're good to go! I still use my tea ball when I'm making one single cup, but when I want more tea, I use these filters.

I just ran out of my sample of this tea, and I'm not going to order a 3 oz bag any time soon. This tea, without honey, was really bitter and rather grassy, without that pear taste I was expecting. Also, the tea is so tiny that some of it slipped through my infuser.

This tea smells delicious! My shipment just came in, along with a cream sample and a vanilla sample. I mixed 1tsp cream with 1tsp decaf vanilla and 1tsp chocolate and steeped it in a paper filter in just boiled water. The smell was great, but it was a little bitter- I had to add 2 packets of sugar. I have yet to try it on its own, though.

I was offered a free chocolate tea sample by Adagio, so of course I had to buy some other teas with it during the free shipping Black Friday sale! It got here today, and I mixed 1tsp chocolate with 1tsp decaf vanilla and 1tsp cream and steeped it in a paper filter in just boiled water. The smell was great, but it was a little bitter- I had to add 2 packets of sugar.

When I first opened the bag, I wanted to stick my head in it forever. However, this tea tasted like bitter baking chocolate. I'm sure that if I had mixed in milk, it would've tasted better.
