Flavors of fall from Adagio

I'm still enjoying sampling the new teas I received from Adagio recently, and this week I tried two new ones that are part of their perfect-for-fall Nut and Spice Sampler, the Oriental Spice Tea and Almond Tea.

I never tire of opening a new packet of tea and inhaling and then examining the tea leaves. The Oriental Spice Tea is described as a "tangy Ceylon tea blended with fresh, herby-sweet spices." These spices include cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and orange rinds, and I very much enjoyed the warm, spicy flavor of this tea.

I love-love-love almond flavor, and when I opened the Almond Tea a mighty fine scent greeted me. This almond-flavored Ceylon blend is absolutely packed with almond flavor, and I think I may have found my favorite "nutty" tea yet. It also tasted naturally sweet, and it was so dessert-y, in fact, that I forgot to get the sweet I originally headed to the kitchen for when I decided to sample this tea — and that's saying something! If you'd like to find out more about Adagio's Nut and Spice Sampler, go here.


  1. Wow, I wouldn't know which to try first!

  2. I just tried Adagio's Ceylon Waltz I ordered earlier this year. It was very good. Your Adagio suggestions make me think it might be time to order again.

  3. You make them so appealing and beautiful in your photos. They both sound perfectly delicious!

  4. Both sound like teas I would enjoy.
