Brigadoon/Adagio Teas

Brigadoon/Adagio Teas

After taking a bit of a hiatus, we are happy to be back! Can’t say how often we will be posting but happy to kick off the new year with a particularly famous tea from Adagio Teas.

If you are familiar with Adagio Teas, you are familiar with their holiday and themed teas.  A particular tea I have recently heard quite a bit about and seen quite a few posting about- Brigadoon, Adagio’s Leap Year blend.

Brigadoon is a blended black tea comprised of Asam and Keemun teas.  Also added into the mix is Silver Needle white tea and blue cornflowers.   I originally though this tea was an earl grey blend but to my delight- this tea is a Scottish Breakfast Tea.

After taking a small hiatus from caffeine, I was a bit hesitate to try this tea as I’ve noticed a sensitivity to caffeine recently (increased headaches).  As I took my first sip of this tea, instant love formed for this tea and I knew immediately why this tea is so highly regarded.

This black tea prepped hot (212F- steeped 4 minutes) is smooth and malty with a robust feel.  No notes of astringency whatsoever.  There are hints of sweetness and floral moments here and there.  After a couple sips, I decided this tea would be a beautiful latte and I frothed up milk to add in.  The combination of the frothed milk just increased my admiration for this tea.

Big fan of this one and even though I need to be careful with how much of this tea I drink in a day- I have a feeling I’ll be stocking up on this one.  As an FYI, if you do intend to stock up on this one (which I highly recommend doing), this tea is only available for a short time starting on 2/29/2024!

  1. Hello, I go for so long without hearing from those I used to pester who reviewed tea, and today, here’s an email from Sorori Tea Sisters; wondered where you folks disappeared to; happy to hear that you took a hiatus from caffeine and tea drinking.

    I have been trying to take a hiatus from tea since it does not appeal to me as did some twelve years or more now. I have lost what little that was inspiring me to seek out tea blogging as a way to communicate with the world. I mean that nothing that I do or try to do is good enough, it is a dead blog; like this person. I am sorry, nothing to do with Sorori Tea Sisters. There’s no sisterhood in me.

    It’s good that you do reviews from time. Stay well.
