I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned just how much I love tea before. At work, I’m constantly drinking tea all day long and on the weekends I have a few cups throughout the day. To me, tea is very comforting and makes me feel at ease and less stressed. Luckily I have another friend who loves tea like I do and was excited to go to a private tea tasting for two with me!
Never having been in the store (but peeking in a lot), I was really impressed with how beautiful their store was- tea everywhere, hardwood floors, relaxing music- I fell in love instantly. Our tea host was Christian who knew more about tea and it’s history than I know about anything in general. Christian taught us about the different types of tea, how it’s processed, where it comes from and how best to enjoy each type of tea.
We tasted three and then browsed around picking out some to purchase to take home. The employees were so incredible at helping us chose teas I couldn’t believe it. Based on your taste preferences, they recommended teas they feel you would love. At the end of the tasting, we were informed we were getting our very own personal steeping teapot!! I can’t even begin to describe how I excited I was about this and how much dancing occurred in the store.
After dancing. I selected four teas I wanted and was pleasantly surprised to find out that when you purchased four, you got one free!
I really love Adagio Teas and their company in general. They are passionate about making organic and fair trade teas. Their tea is fresh and doesn’t sit on the shelves in the store for longer than two weeks! They also have a loyalty program- for every 100 points you get, they send you a $10.00 credit for the store!
My favorite part however was the post card they gave us when we were leaving. The pre-stamped post cards are intended for you to send to one of their farmers thanking them for making the tea you’re drinking.
How cool is that? AND how cool is this cute little on the go tea infuser I got??
Here’s a tea fun fact for you: herbal tea is not actually tea. There is no real tea in herbal tea, it’s just an assortment of herbs, spices, and fruit to make an herbal drink and we are the only country in the world that calls it tea. Interesting right??
I think this could have be the best Groupon I’ve ever purchased!
That’s all the nonsense I have for now!
Are you a tea drinker?? Or coffee? Or Neither??
