Adagio Teas : Gingerbread Flavored Tea Review

Sort of Like Drinking a Gingerbread Cookie....Sort of

Summary : This tea is not destined to replace gingerbread or gingerbread cookies over Christmas. Still, this tea bears a striking resemblance to gingerbread...just in liquid form. If gingerbread is you thing, I suspect you'll likely enjoy this tea to one degree or another.

Review : Well, here it is...those strange days between Christmas and New Years. The Christmas stuff is packed away, the weather just keeps getting colder but the fun of New Years hasn't started out yet. So perhaps in a mood for self-punishement, I decided to give the gingerbread flavored black tea from Adagio Teas a try.

Truthfully, I didn't have high hopes for this tea. This tea came part of their holiday sampler pack. And the two teas I tried before this from this sampler pack, pumpkin spice and chestnut, were definitely teas I would rather forget about having tried.

Still, I live by the motto...nothing ventured is nothing gained, so off I went to brew this tea...admittedly in a rather negative state of mind.

Here is how Adagio Teas describes this tea on their website : "Premium black tea from Sri Lanka flavored with sweet gingerbread. Both Gingerbread men and women agree: this unique tea is the perfect addition to any house (gingerbread or regular). You'll run, run, run as fast as you can for another cup! Try this limited-time treat."

Gingerbread Flavored Black Tea Leaves

Overall, with the exception of running as fast as I can for another cup, Adagio Teas did a pretty honest job of describing this tea.

This tea, as advertised, tastes like sweet gingerbread. How they accomplished making a "bread tasting tea" is beyond me...but they did. The tea also lacks any sort of black tea taste...a common trait of other flavored black teas. And lastly, the tea has no bitterness...always a happy event when sampling flavored black teas.

So, overall...if you love gingerbread, there is a high probability you'll like this tea. As gingerbread isn't really my thing, this tea is far from my favorite tea around. But, it isn't drain cleaner either.

Recommendation : Yes. If you enjoy gingerbread, you'll likely enjoy this tea. If gingerbread is not your thing...avoid this tea, as gingerbread is what this tea essentially is.
