When do the Fall/Holiday teas make their appearance. I am already anticipating the wonderful flavors and aromas.

I'm dying to get my hands on the gingerbread - blending equal parts yunnan gold and gingerbread is fab!

It does seem like you could order sample sizes here though. (Hope that link works - if not, search "gingerbread" on Adagio's main page.)

Oh, and I think they were available around Halloween of last year.

Thank you, Klemptor. I drink tea everyday and all year long. But there is just something special about the Fall and Holiday teas!

Three more months??? *groan*
I'm definitely ordering a big tin of that great Pumpkin Spice tea. (hmm...I wonder if it's really "Great Pumpkin" tea, meant for sipping while waiting for the Great Pumpkin with Charlie Brown and Linus?)

I hear that our fall teas (like our Halloween) will begin to appear in mid September. There is also talk about a new flavor in development, that may be available at the same time as the Halloween. The rest of the holiday flavors will follow suit shortly after.

In the meantime I will sit and sulk - since I have yet to try any of them :(

You can't tease us with "a new flavor in development" and not give us the scoop! ;)

*hoping it's a holiday chai*

Ah, can't wait for the Holiday teas! I got sample tins last year to try them and am hooked. I'll probably stock up on larger tins this year to get myself through. Gingerbread with a little bit of the Cream tastes yummy, too. :)

I've only ever had one kind of flavored tea, and it was the orange flavor from here. It was horrible. I had to add sugar to actually be able to drink it. Are all flavored teas like that, or more importantly are the pumpkin spice and gingerbread like that? I never add anything to tea. In my opinion it ruins the tea.

it could be that you just don't favor flavored teas, but if you're anything like me, you might want to try a non-fruit flavored tea before you write all flavored teas off. i find that i just really don't tend to like fruit flavored black teas. something about the flavor just doesn't seem complimentary to me, at least with the fruit blacks i've tried so far.

Saying you've tried only one flavored tea and for dislike of it have sworn off all others would be unfair. It would be as if someone tried Lapsang Souchong and after not liking decided to boycott all black teas! Flavorings can be fun and I encourage you to experiment more with spice teas or floral teas.

On the subject of generalizing a type of tea, I tried many of adagio's fruit based herbals and found them all to have to much hibiscus. But I didn't give up and continued trying ones until I found blood orange, which to me has the perfect balance of flavors for an herbal. I also found a number of flavored blacks were too artificial tasting but I love the vanilla during the fall and winter.

I wish that the Fall and Holiday teas were available all year long. I don't reserve a flavor for a certain time of the year.

I just drink whatever I feel like at the time.
