Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This is a creative and distinct blend with much to offer. While the usual cast of characters provide the underlying spiciness that is expected of any self-respecting chai, the coconut and lemongrass add layer and depth to this tea. "

Adagio Tea Artisan Comfort Collection

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"A great gift box for introducing friends to the finer world of loose leaf tea. It provides a nice variety across the tea spectrum, and no fancy infusers are required. From there, once they get hooked after 30+ cups of "real" tea, then they can delve into all the better loose leaf gadgetry and wide variety of teas the world over."

Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:

Adagio Tea Sweet Medley Collection

7.9/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"This collection - although full of delicious and fresh teas - seems geared toward "newbies", as the sweet and fruity flavorings are more palleted to the masses than the more exotic straight-up tea flavors. However, this is a great gift idea for those loved ones who may be somewhat ignorant to finer teas, or wanting to explore more but don't have all the fancy infusers and tea ware."

Adagio Hazelnut Black

7.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The hazelnut flavor is instantly detectable, bringing with it a smooth nuttiness and a wonderfully toasty element. One thing is for sure...this ain't no light and refreshing tea; rather this is a hearty and filling brew guaranteed to satisfy any cravings for sweet and/or nutty flavors."

Adagio Anji Duet

7.3/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"The resulting liquor was a pale spring green, with a faintly sweet floral, butter, stone fruit, and cream fragrance. The flavor was much simpler and very close to that of a white: buttery, sweet, subtle, and silvery sweet on the tongue, with a moderate finish of spring water and sweet clover, with no bitterness whatsoever. "

      8/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This subtly-flavored tea is probably great for those that aren’t into overly spinachy and grassy green teas, but I wouldn’t recommend this to those looking for bold green tea flavors."

Adagio Dancong Aria

      7.35/10
Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"The resulting liquor was a dark golden yellow and smelled not of orchids, but quite decidedly of peaches, pronounced, but not overpowering. The flavor was also quite peachy, right down to a bit of tartness around the edges of my tongue, with notes of honey, as well."

Adagio Apricot Green Tea

6.6/10  —  8 reviews
