Back in the day, I would only drink your standard English breakfast tea in tea bags and was never open to trying different flavours. I then branched out to drinking green tea and peppermint tea but now I am loving trying different flavours.
Adagio have the largest selection of tea flavours I have ever seen! You can buy tea bags, loose teas, tea pots, tea strainers and even bags to put loose tea in!
I got my hands on the tea maker which is a cool gadget you can brew your tea in, on top of your mug. I am pretty impressed by this, meaning you can brew your loose tea easily.
Or you can always buy the tea bag papers to make your own tea bags if you would prefer. These are also a great idea if you want to mix different flavours together and pre-make some tea bags.
They have so many different flavours and you can buy sampler boxes which then contain a variety teas within that range.
The first teas I wanted to have were the herbal garden box, this box contains: peppermint, spearmint, chamomile and lemon grass. I went for peppermint first as this is my all time favourite flavour tea.
Each sachet tells you how much tea you should use per cup. I personally use less than this as I don’t like my tea too strong but you will soon learn what you do and don’t like.
It is so easy to use the tea maker. You put the tea in and then add the water in. When you are then ready to put it in your mug you simply place it over the mug and it has a special mechanism underneath which then flows the water through into your mug and leaving the bits in the tea maker. You can use it to make two mugs/cups of tea and then it is so easy to just rinse out. I think you can put it in the dishwasher but I find it just as easy to hand wash and then its ready straight away for when you next want to use it.
I am really impressed with how easy the teas are to use and also at the variety of flavours, there really is something for everyone.
I decided to take some of the tea into work to share with my colleagues and to see what they thought of the different flavours as they are all tea drinkers. The ones they tried were:
“Lovley vanilla tones, feels very calming. A good one to have before bedtime” – Earl Grey Moonlight
“Smooth and fresh like a warm summers day” – Wild Strawberry
“Delicately refreshing with a hint of orange” – Blood Orange
“Smooth, delicate tasting tea. Thoroughly enjoyed.” – Earl Grey Bravo
“Refreshing and crisp – full of raspberry flavour” – Raspberry Patch
“Light, delicate, I loves it. Would be good served cold too! – Lemon Meringue Green Tea
“Smells wonderful and tastes subtle. Slight caramel taste too.” – Candy Apple Tea
