It is the first thing I do each morning. Get up, turn the kettle on. A day doesn’t start right without a cup of tea followed by several more over the course of the day.
I love tea, cannot get enough of the stuff! So, when the very kind people over at Adagio Teas asked me if I would like to try some of their festive teas I jumped at the chance!
Adagio Teas are an online company specialising in Tea. Teas of every kind, from Oolong to Earl Grey all the way to Matcha and Chai there is a tea to suit everyone. There are even some more adventurous flavours like their special Christmas selections which include candy cane and chestnut flavours. Loose tea, tea bags, tea cups, tea pots. Everything you could ever need to go on a worldwide tour of tea. Glorious!
They have a fantastic selection of gifts for Christmas, and they are all reasonably priced.
My favourite definitely has to be these super adorable mini tins of tea, filled with loose tea. They are just so cute! For £12 you get these 6 tins of each of their festive flavours, chestnut, cranberry, candy cane, pumpkin spice, candy apple and gingerbread. You could gift them separately as stocking fillers or as a set.
If loose tea isn’t your bag (see what I did there?) these mini tins are available filled with teabags. You can also get a Holiday Cheer selection box of their festive flavours for £14. This include 30 teabags with the same selection of flavours in a lovely presentation box. I would be over the moon to receive this as a gift.
Their tea selection is huge! With so many to try you might find it difficult to decide on which one to choose. Luckily most of them have a sample pack available for a mere £1.50! This makes around 10 cups. This is great if there is a flavour you fancy trying without buying a large pack.
One of my favourites from Adagio is the Christmas black tea. Ceylon tea with cinnamon, clove and orange peel. It is spicy and aromatic. The cinnamon and clove are not too powerful, just enough to give a real warmth to a delicious black tea. I can see this being a favourite over the Christmas period.
I can also highly recommend the candy cane tea. I was a bit dubious about this, wondering how a festive favourite hard candy walking stick would translate to tea but it is just incredible. It combines black tea, peppermint flavour and candy cane pieces. It has a decadent vanilla and mint aroma and a real delicately flavoured sweet mint taste. It reminded me a bit of a humbug (the sweetie kind not the Scrooge kind). It is incredibly moreish.
