Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:
I could find much information about the company on their website but there is a nice page on their web site that leads to many news articles about the company. You can find those articles by clicking this LINK.
I’ve known about and have tasted Adagio teas for a few years, to me they are one of the small companies that made it big, through hard work and allowing people like me the opportunity to review their teas and tell you all about them. Adagio works hard to make sure their company represents the tea market from tea leaf to last sip. I’m honored to share the reviews of their teas with you!

These are common instructions for brewing teas, however if the company suggests other brewing I will include it in the review section.

Ceylon Sonata Tea
What the site has to say about their product:
Ceylon Sonata is a classic black tea from Sri Lanka. In colonial times, this island nation was known as Ceylon. This name is still used to describe all teas grown here. Ceylon tea is bright and lively, medium-bodied and delightfully tangy. Our Ceylon Sonata hails from the renowned Kenilworth Estate, located in Sri Lanka’s Kandy region. Fresh, citrusy aroma, sweet juicy notes like mandarin peel or grapefruit, refreshing texture and balanced astringency. The perfect afternoon tea.
COSTS: $3.00 / sample (and up)
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
Brewed: a mid to dark brewed liquor.
Scent: A definite tea flavor.
Flavor: This is a mild tea with a slightly sweet flavor to it (no sweetener added). There is no bitterness or aftertaste with this tea.
Sentiments: First I have to say this tea also comes as a cold brew tea, I will have that review up next. But I do love a great tea that goes with any time of day or meal and this tea would be that tea. It’s got that slight sweet taste to it as well as a smooth brew that makes it fit for all occasions and times. Great tea to have hardy when company comes.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “7”.
Till next sip…
