Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:
I could not find much information about the company on their website but there is a nice page on their web site that leads to many news articles about the company. You can find those articles by clicking this LINK.
I’ve known about and have tasted Adagio teas for a few years, to me they are one of the small companies that made it big, through hard work and allowing people like me the opportunity to review their teas and tell you all about them. Adagio works hard to make sure their company represents the tea market from tea leaf to last sip. I’m honored to share the reviews of their teas with you!

What the site has to say about their product:
White tea from the Darjeeling region of India. A rare treat from the Rohini estate, nestled along the picturesque slopes of the Himalayas. Similar in appearance to the White Peony tea of China, the Darjeeling version is equally sublime. This early spring tea offers young leaves and delicate unopened buds. Dry leaf aroma is crisp with hints of fruit and floral. The cup offers hypnotic honeysuckle and apricot blossom notes.
COSTS: $5.00 / sample (and up)
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
Brewed: A very light brewed liquor.
Scent: A light scent of hay or vegetal.
Flavor: This is beautiful leafy tea with a very light vegetal flavor.
Sentiments: I love a good white tea and this is one that you will want to share and keep. I love the look of the leafy tea out of the bag as well as the brewed leaves after. A white tea will alway have that very light liquor and light taste that gives you an almost desert brew feeling but it’s good any time you want it.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “9”.
Till next sip…
