Tea Review – Adagio (pt.2) – Watermelon Cooler, Hazelnut, Earl Grey

Company Name: ADAGIO TEAS (Part Two)

 

There is one thing I must say about Adagio and you have to check it out for yourself is their ability to give you $ off of your tea(s) at checkout by doing various little things. Their prices are already reasonable but I was thrilled to find extra things I could do to reward myself even more.

 

One more thing, when your order is placed you will get continuous updates as to where your tea is along the way and then placed at your door. I love this tracking feature.

 

TEA SELECTION: WATERMELON COOLER

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

It honestly reminded me of a very ripe fruit bowl! I was ready for the same old sangria type of mixture but I was again delighted to find a different taste!

Ingredients:

Apple Pieces

Hibiscus

Rose Hips

Raspberry Leaves

Cranberries

Natural Watermelon Flavor <— adding what natural flavor is added is a plus!

Rose Petals

 

 

The Scent or Aroma:

A very ripe and alive fruit bowl.

 

Review:

I have to note again that letting us know what type of flavor you have added to the mix is an addition plus for me, because adding “natural flavor” means nothing unless I know exactly what flavor you are adding. Great job Adagio!

 

This deep red brew really does have an amazing watermelon flavor with the added twist of all these amazing ingredients. Sweet and refreshing is great hot as well as on ice.

 

 

Cost: $8.00 / 3 oz.

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: HAZELNUT

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

Has the look of coffee, darker brew.

 

Ingredients:

Ceylon Black Tea

Hazelnut

Touch Brown Sugar

 

The Scent or Aroma:

Strong Hazelnut Scent

 

Review:

This is your wake me up coffee, it’s dark and strong with a mellow flow.   The hazelnut really stands out and I like that, Ceylon black tea can be strong but the hazelnut really cuts in there and makes its presence noticed.

 

 

Cost: $7.00 / 3 oz.

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: EARL GREY  

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

How do you enhance an Earl Grey? You make it in individual tear open pouches that are single serving!

 

Ingredients:

China Premium Black Tea

Bergamot Oil

 

The Scent or Aroma:

Bergamot oil gives it an amazing citrus flavor

 

Review:

Lovely Earl Grey with and a strong presence yet a nice flowing semi bitter flavor, this tea will wake you up as well as an added bonus to a lunch time meal. Strong flavor with a slightly bitter back to it.

 

Cost: $8.00 / 15 single serve packets

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

Company highlights, notes and more:

 

Generally I search the website to find the “about us” page but this was far more interesting.. a ban yourself page, ban yourself from the goodness Adagio has to offer.

I spoke with Adagio about how often it is use and their response was:

 

“As for our “ban-me” page it does not get used very often, perhaps 1-2 times a month.”

 

I really liked the uniqueness of the Control Yourself page but so glad it’s not needed that often, I mean honestly, who needs to ban themselves from tea? Not I for sure!

control yourself

I, Lisa, request that I be excluded from and not be allowed to enter Adagio Teas’ properties. I acknowledge that the website from which I am banning myself is awesome, and the teas within delicious, and I acknowledge that this ban will include websites that are opened or acquired after the date of this request. I acknowledge that this self-exclusion shall keep me from viewing all of Adagio’s gourmet teas and beautiful teaware, and I shall not be permitted to enter or return to any of Adagio’s store locations. This temporary ban shall apply to all parts of the website, including teas, teaware items, pantry, signature blends, as well as gifts. The words “Adagio” and “Adagio Teas” as used in this form include the website, physical stores in the Chicagoland area, and Laurence Tureaud (aka. B.A. Baracus).
