It is a bit of joke in my family that I probably run on tea, most of the time I stick to breakfast tea, but I have been adventuring out and trying to try different blends. So I was thrilled when Adagio Teas got in touch and asked if I would like to try out some of their blends, of which they offer a whole host.
Adagio Tea – The Perfect Drink
Before I agree to any collaboration with a new brand, I always like to have a good look around their website and one of the first things that jumped out at me as they offer a selection of “fan blends”. These are blends that are made to represent characters from the show, with each tea coming in a cute little tin which has images of the character or “potions” on the front.
Of course, me being me I had to go for the Doctor Who selection and was kindly sent the sampler set, which includes a sample of each of the 6 blends for £19.
Hands up I may have squealed just a little when I took these tins out there box, I mean who could not just love them (and be a Doctor Who fan). However, I was not prepared for the tea inside, not only does it smell amazing but it looks really quite pretty as well. Just check out River Songs blend! Which I can't tell you more about because you know spoilers darling.
One thing I find about blends of tea is you often don't know which ones you might like and paying out a whole host of pennies to find out you aren't a fan isn't a great plan. So what really interested me about Adagio Tea is they offer sampler packs. These sampler packs are collected into groups of teas with a similar ingredient, for instance, Nuts and Seeds, Earl Grey, Berries, Honey Bush and more.
Each sampler set contains 4 teas and each packet can make 10 cups. The prices on these sampler sets differ but they start at £6 and go up to £24. The bulk of them cost between £6 and £9 however, which I think is a great price for enough tea for you to sample and see what it is like.
I was kindly sent 6 of the different sampler boxes and I am still slowly making my way through them, I have to admit though there is one thing I have found in common with them all so far; the ingredients all look such good quality, they smell amazing and even when I'm not too sure about them being quite to my taste I cannot fault how full of flavour each tea has been so far.
If you are worried about how to seep the tea, never fear, Adagio Tea offer the ingenuiTEA, this is a simple to use device, you just add a teaspoon of your selected blend, leave it to seep for as long as the directions instruct (do check this as it differs from blend to blend) and the pop the ingenuiTEA on top of your favourite mug and out comes the tea. Simple.
Personally, I have been really impressed with Adagio Tea, I am definitely going to have to try their English Breakfast blend in the future.
If you would like to try some Adagio Tea you can, of course, check out their whole selection on their website. However I, of course, mentioned a competition in the title and Adagio Tea have been kind enough to offer me a ingenuiTEA and a set of 6 sample boxes to give away to one lucky winner. All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is let me know by using 8 words or more:
What tea would you most like to try? To make the comment into 8 words you could perhaps tell me why it's your favourite OR where you would drink it.
