Product Review: @AdagioTeas Advent Tea Calendar

I got a chance to review a really awesome Advent Calendar from Adagio Teas! It’s supposed to be for Advent but I couldn’t wait so I opened it right away. :)

As with other Advent calendars I’ve used, the best part is being surprised by what you get each day. I would open the calendar and drink whatever tea I got for my teatime each day around 4 pm, so I ended up eating a lot of cookies and pastries with my tea. :)

I’m really impressed with the variety of tea in this calendar. There was everything: plain black tea as well as flavored black tea, oolong, green, flavored green, white, flavored white, rooibos and herbal. I admit I’m not a huge fan of oolong or rooibos, but I ended up liking some of the tea I got despite my bias.

Since I don’t want to spoil the surprise of what tea is in it, I’ll only highlight my favorite flavors. I liked the flavored black teas the best, but especially the winter and Christmas themed ones. The chestnut black tea was surprisingly good. I usually don’t really care for roasted chestnuts, but the tea was wonderfully nutty and slightly sweet, and it tasted great with milk and honey.

The box had some of my favorites, such as the Genmaicha “popcorn” rice green tea and the Masala Chai.

I also found I really enjoyed the Silver Needle white tea prepared hot. Previously I had only made it as a cold brew iced tea, but prepared hot, it was nicely mild and even a little sweet. It was perfect with a chocolate cookie.

A tea I tried for the first time and really liked was the Candy Apple tea. It was surprisingly “juicy” tasting and was great with only a little sweetener.

I liked having the opportunity to try teas I hadn’t tried before from Adagio. Since I usually don’t drink oolong tea hot, I especially liked how the different oolong teas in the calendar let me taste the difference between the different types.

All in all, I loved this Advent tea calendar! (And no, it’s not because I had an excuse to eat a lot of cookies and cakes! Really!)
