This Pina Colada tea is the perfect brew for a summer morning or a cold winter day when you are dreaming about the summertime! With plenty of coconut overtones and pineapple accents, this tea is a great tribute to the timeless cocktail.
I wouldn't call it a favorite tea, but it was definitely a fun sample! (Thanks Adagio Teas!!)
The tea has chunks of pineapple, coconut flakes, dried apples, rose hips and dried hibiscus. A decaf tea with lots of flavor. It is recommended to steep this tea at 212 degrees and I I steeped mine for about 7 minutes, but you can go longer if you want a more tangy flavor profile.
I rate this tea 3 out of 5 stars.

I have been wanting to try this sample out for awhile, I got this Oolong Goddess by Adagio from a friend at Christmas and just finally got around to trying it.
Smooth and light, this oolong tea is delicious. A perfect afternoon cuppa.
According to the Adagio:
Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy presented this rare tea in reward to a devout farmer who for many years diligently maintained her old, dilapidated temple. "The key for your future," she said, "is just outside this temple." Outside the temple, the farmer found a withered and forlorn straggly bush.
In addition to a great back story, there are so many great health benefits from this tea.
Oolong tea is great for your metabolism which supports weight loss and is also great for people who suffer from eczema. In a 2001 study, those who suffered from eczema who drank 3 cups of oolong tea per day reported relief from their symptoms and noticeable changes in their skin's health.
I rate this oolong tea a 4 out 5 stars.

I've been drinking this tea all week at the office and it's become a favorite! Glad I ended up with two samples because I have more to drink at home. Cha Cha by Adagio Teas is a tea blend of chamomile, lemongrass and peppermint. Fragrant and light - this is the perfect tea for all day sipping. I have found I can make 3 steeps off of one serving with great flavor each time.
Steep at 212 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes. I steeped for about 7 minutes and got great flavor - if you go closer to 10 minutes you have the chance for the flavor to go a little bitter.
I rate this this herbal tea a 5 out of 5 stars!

This is a beautiful oolong tea by Adagio Teas - light and slightly sweet. This tea is from the Fujian province of China and is one of China's most beloved oolong teas. Ti Kuan Yin means 'Iron Goddess of Mercy' - the legend goes that a kind hearted farmer was spoken to by the goddess and told that him his future was just behind the temple where he found the tea leaves and planted them.
This tea is very refreshing and has many layers of flavors - be careful, though, it can easily become bitter if steeped too long or left to sit and cool. I enjoyed this tea and look forward to sipping it through out the evening. Oolongs are known to be good for your metabolism, too!
I rate this oolong tea a 4 out of 5 stars!
