Tea Time! {Adagio Tea Giveaway – CLOSED}

Tea gives rhythm to the day. A cup to warm up and wake up in the morning. An afternoon sip to accompany a small snack and bring a little wakefulness to the mid afternoon slump. An herbal tisane to help send you into peaceful slumber.

Since college, at least, I’ve enjoyed the rhythm of tea drinking throughout my day. Some of my best memories of college include sitting on the floor with a group of my closest pals, forcing a much-needed break from our studies to catch up, laugh, and forget those papers and readings for a moment. We would pull out our fine china cups and large tea pots, filling them up with a jasmine, an oolong, an earl grey. . . Sweet treats that had been stashed away to share would emerge from drawer. We would settle in for an hour to enjoy each other’s company while sipping a warm cup.

Now, as a mother, I still like to take that pause in the middle of the afternoon with my girls. Cookies or tea cakes come out of the cupboard. I steep a cup of tea. {They enjoy a cup of apple juice.} Our daily tea party is important. It is a great place to ‘waste’ time together, a great place to connect.

I recently discovered an online tea company, Adagio Teas, that is helping me to carry on this tea habit. They have an amazing variety of teas. AND they allow you mix your own blends!

I picked up a blend called Valentine in February that is reminiscent of chocolate-covered strawberries. {And you all can imagine how all over that I was!} It’s a fun tea to drink alongside a slice of chocolate cake.

Earl Grey with lavender has always been one of my favorites. Caffeinated, yet calming. It is best with a splash of milk. I’ve had difficulty finding it but Adagio did not disappoint.

Their green teas are great, their white teas are bright, the chai hits it with just the right amount of spice. If the herbals are more ‘your cup of tea’, they have some fun berry blends, a delightful chamomile, and a collection of mates. I’ve never seen so many rooibos options!  And you don’t want to miss their flavored black teas — they’re sure to have one of your favorites.

I created a Cool Vanilla Peppermint blend for a friend. I was able to determine exactly how much of each tea went into the blend. Try blending your own!

The teas are available in loose leaf sample packs, 3 ounces, 16 ounces or as tea bags. So many options. I ordered a handful of sample packs for a few dollars a piece {most of which make about 10 cups of tea!}, and a few of my favorites in the larger pouches.


Would you like to try a cup or two of their excellent blends?? Adagio has sent me a collection of samples to send to one lucky reader! To enter, leave a comment with your favorite tea. For an extra entry, follow me on Instagram and post a comment letting me know you did. Giveaway ends May 4th, 9pm PST. The winner is Katrina! Thanks for playing, all!

If you just can’t wait, head over to Adagio where all first-time buyers receive $5 off their first order.
