Adagio teas

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

My favourite ones were

Herbal garden box:

peppermint – A native of the Mediterranean, revered for its cool, crisp aroma, deeply fresh flavour and smooth finish.
spearmint – Refreshingly clear, soothing aroma. Slightly smoother, more grounded than peppermint, gentle to the palate.
chamomile – A beloved herb from Egypt’s Nile River Valley. Aroma of freshly cut apples, calming floral-sweet flavour.
lemongrass – Native of Southeast Asia, with delicate Meyer lemon flavour, hint of sweet ginger and uplifting floral aroma.

Berries tea:

strawberry – Fresh strawberry flavour and bright Ceylon black tea. Fresh sweet-floral and berry flavour, smooth and sugary texture.
raspberry – Crisp black tea with playful raspberry flavour. Candy-like aroma, jammy flavour, tangy dry finish, not too ‘cheeky.’
blueberry – Ceylon black tea with fresh blueberry flavour. Highly aromatic, slightly sweet, rounded texture. Perfect hot or iced!
blackberry – Ceylon black tea infused with sweetly tart berries. Floral-fruity and bakey aroma, like fresh berry scones.

Earl grey teas:

rooibos earl grey – Caffeine-free twist on a classic blend. Zesty citrus, but smoother and sweeter than traditional Earl Grey.
earl grey green – Green tea from China with the robust flavours of bergamot (a citrus fruit). Zesty and refreshingly dry.
earl grey moonlight – The comforting flavours of vanilla and cream combine to soften the citrus notes of traditional Earl Grey.
earl grey bravo – Zesty, citrus sweet, and balanced orange rind flavour. Perfect with milk.

What is your favourite tea?

    I’ve never been a big tea drinker – even when I was younger! But the tea strainer seems pretty useful!

    I am a huge tea drinker! And some of these flavours sound divine, how could you refuse a Candy Apple tea? x x x

    I’ve never tried any kind of tea apart from just plain old tea, I really need to branch out a bit! Xx

    Sounds like a really handy product for people who drink lots of different teas. I personally don’t like herbal or fruity teas.

    Oh wow, I love this! I’ve got tons of herbal teas in the cupboard which would benefit from this x

    I love tea. I absolutely love rooibos tea – it is something I always have in my cupboard. I love how it has no caffeine, so I can drink as much of it as I want at night!
