adagio teas?

Recommended Posts

I've seen their website numerous times, but I haven't seen anyone mention it here. Has anyone ordered teas from www.adagio.com? It looks like a nice selection, but I was wary. Any opinions?

Thanks!! :laugh:

I have ordered from Adagio many times. I get their email newsletter about new and interesting things or special deals.

They have always been fast and accurate and their little sample tins are really great for holding odd little things when you have used the tea. Their regular tins seal tightly and keep the tea perfectly.

I use a lot of tea and have ordered from most of the tea vendors on the 'net during the past several years. I have had only one bad experience and that vendor is no longer in business.


"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

I've ordered from Adagio many times and love their products. They get good quality tea, and sell it in containers that keep it that way. They have a great variety of teas, though they go deeper into the esoteric Chinese and Japanese teas than they do with Indian.

If you're an Assam hound or Darjeeling nut, then they're probably not your shop... if you like greens and oolongs, then give them a try.

I haven't tried them yet, but I did order a sampler for one of my tea-loving friends. She liked the gift (I sent her a mix of flavors and green teas), and particularly enjoyed the caramel tea.

      Even though I would like to change the situation, the winter is coming. Sooner or later there will be sharp winds, frost and unpleasant moisture. I don't know how you like to warm up at home, but on the first cold day I dust off my home recipe for hot and yummy winter teas.

      You can use my recipe or come up with your own proposals for fiery mixtures. Only one thing should be the same: your favourite tea must be strong and hot.

      Ingredients (for 2 teas)
      Raspberry-orange
      8 cloves
      a piece of cinnamon
      2 grains of cardamom
      4 slices of orange
      2 teaspoons of honey
      your favourite tea
      50ml of raspberry juice or 30ml of raspberry juice and 30ml of raspberry liqueur
      Add 4 of the cloves, cinnamon and cardamom to some water and boil for a while to release their flavour and aroma. Remove the seasoning and brew the tea with this water. Crush two slices of orange with honey. Add the raspberry juice or a mixture of juice and liqueur to the tea. Next add the honey with orange. Mix it in. Decorate the tea with the rest of the cloves and orange.

      Lemon-ginger
      8 cloves
      3 slices of fresh ginger
      2 grains of cardamom
      50ml of ginger syrup or 30ml of ginger syrup and 30ml of ginger-lemon liqueur
      4 slices of lemon
      2 teaspoons of honey
      Add 4 of the cloves, ginger and cardamom to some water and boil for a while to release their flavour and aroma. Remove the seasoning and brew the tea with this water. Crush two slices of lemon with honey. Add the ginger syrup or mixture of syrup and liqueur to the tea. Next add honey with lemon. Mix it in. Decorate the tea with the rest of the cloves and lemon.

      Enjoy your drink!

      My friend sent me some Chinese tea called Songxiang tea. 
      Has anybody drunk this kind of tea? It's the first time I've heard of this tea.
