This is an epic iced tisane. I had one of those moments where at the first sip my eyes got big, I got a huge grin on my face, and I said, 'Ooooooooh!' My partner, who is much more stoic than I am, wanted to try it based on my reaction. But his version of that same LOVE-LOVE-LOVE reaction looks like his eyebrows going real high and coming together. And his eyebrows did that thing. So it's one thing for me, a tea enthusiast, to love this tisane. But when my partner, who is more of a coffee person and is much pickier about teas and tisane, has the same reaction, that should say something.

Wow wow wow this tea set is excellent. Heavy and sturdy but super cute and bright. I'm absolutely delighted.

I was hoping I'd love this tea because I am a Pisces, and in all fairness, the grapefruit in this tea was lovely and refreshing, but that rooibos chemically taste just kind of killed it for me. Sometimes I can handle red rooibos, somethings I can't, and this is a tea in which I can't. I petition that they switch to a green rooibos in this tea, and all would be resolved!

Nothing beats a good ginger tea, except maybe a good double ginger tea!

It took a couple of tries to figure out how to like this tea. I learned for myself that I need to add a sweetener to it. And I also realized that I can't drink it expecting either a tea flavor or a coffee flavor, but to think of it as an entirely separate beverage. Once I did that, I could taste it for what it was, and surprisingly ended up liking it pretty decently! I'm not sure I'd ever buy it, but now that I've figured out how to enjoy it, I'll look forward to seeing it make the rounds in the CommuniTEA.

WHOOOOOOOAAAAAAAA this tea is so good! I already knew that chocolate and orange was a winning combination, but adding ginger to it just takes it to the next level. Absolutely freaking magical. I'm obsessed.

This is such a delicious and versatile tea. When hot, it is absolutely scrumptious with milk and a sweetener of your choice. When iced, it is perfect plain. It also makes a lovely base for a fandom blend. In other words, you just can't go wrong with this tea no matter how you take it!

You can't go wrong with a classic chocolate tea. As is always the case with dessert teas, I drank this one with milk and sweetener, and I recommend you do the same!

Hazelnut and vanilla is a match made in heaven! What a delightful cup of tea this was! I added milk and a touch of honey and it was *chef's kiss*.

I'm not afraid to admit when I'm wrong, and this is a case where I was wrong. I am skeptical of most vanilla teas because, I often say, they have a tendency to taste like I'm drinking a candle. I said in my review of Vanilla Oolong that it was the only vanilla tea that doesn't taste like drinking a candle. That is incorrect. This tea also tastes like a lovely, delicious vanilla beverage, not like a candle. So yeah, I was wrong. This tea is great. Maybe Adagio is just better than most at flavoring their teas.

This is another one of those teas that I love in blends, and use in my own blends on a somewhat regular basis, but on its own it's just a bit... extra. So while I'll continue to appreciate and love it in blends, this won't be one that I'll ever buy and drink by itself.

Yummmmmm, what a tasty dessert tea! I had this tea in lots of blends, but this is my first time to taste it on its own, and it is great all by itself!

I tried this tea hot and, while it was fine as a hot tea, I can tell that it would make a much tastier iced tea. However, it's currently 30 degrees outside and it's been dumping snow for the past week, so iced tea just isn't super appealing at the moment. I'll try it again in the summer and update my review when I've tried it iced!

This lemongrass is fresh enough that I can even use it successfully in cooking, which is great for times when I don't feel like driving over to the asian market to buy a full stalk of lemongrass. Leaving the house is a bummer sometimes, ya know? So this gives me a great stay-home alternative. But also, of course, it brews into a lovely tisane.

The licorice root is fresh and brews into a potent tisane, which is what I'm looking for!

Yummmmmm, what a deliciously nutty, creamy, earthy, satisfying tea! It reminds me of winter coziness, and I'm 100% here for it!

Normally I'm not a fan of vanilla teas on their own, but love them in blends. But this specific vanilla tea is the one I like best when I want to add vanilla to my blends, so I had a feeling I'd like it best when I drank it plain, too. I drank it with milk and sugar, and it was actually quite tasty. I still don't think I'd buy it to drink it straight, but it really is my favorite vanilla tea.

Wooooooooow! This is one of those rare red rooibos teas that doesn't taste like cough syrup to me! Despite the many flavorings in this tea, I get none of the unpleasant chemically taste that I normally get from a red rooibos and instead just get the lovely, sweet yet indescribable taste I enjoy in green rooibos teas. And oh man, is that pecan-caramel flavor combo tasty! I don't get much chocolate flavor at all, but I really love the pecan-caramel-rooibos thing they've got going on here. This one is a winner for me, and a tea I'd actually purchase!
Dec 5th '21
Downright decadent! Not only is this tea delightfully chocolatey, it's also surprisingly creamy. It really did taste like a tea-infused chocolate truffle--which makes sense, since I suppose it's actually a chocolate truffle-infused tea!

This is a pleasant, tart but sweet, berry-flavored tisane that I enjoyed but probably wouldn't buy.

I'm a fan of neither assam nor (most, but not all) green teas, so a green assam really isn't my jam. That said, I didn't hate it. It just isn't something I'm going to voluntarily drink on my own.

While I love toasted mates, I'm really not a fan of regular mates. So, y'know, this was fine, but not something I'd ever drink of my own volition.

This tea wasn't nearly as licorice forward as I thought (and hoped) it would be. Instead, it has a mellow, earthy, almost toasty flavor that I actually enjoyed. As for the concerns about the ingredients, there is an adage in the medical community that comes to mind: if it can have an effect, it can have a side effect. Any tea that has any herb in it can have an effect, which means it can have a side effect. Likewise, another medical adage comes to mind: only the dose makes the poison. In other words, just because an herb has potential side effects at certain doses doesn't mean it will absolutely have that side effect at any dose. In summary: if you aren't sure whether or not an herb in an herbal tea is right for you, simply consult your doctor instead of getting mad at the folx who provide the herbal tea.

While I do like this tea in blends, I just can't make myself like it on its own. Then again, I feel the same way about cranberries in general. But as an aside, I am absolutely madly in love with the Cranberry Nut Muffin tea! It is absolutely scrumptious!
