On Friday, I received an email from Adagio Teas featuring a holiday sampler. The sampler consists of six different looseleaf teas: candy apple, candy cane, chestnut, cranberry, gingerbread, and pumpkin spice — for only $11. I buy! In fact, for that price I bought an extra one as a gift for my dad. After all, the holidays are approaching and I need to think ahead.
Friday was when I bought them, and they arrived today. Gotta love quick service. I didn’t get a chance to try them all, but I did break out the gingerbread tea. My first perception on this sampler was that all of these teas would be really sweet, however the gingerbread was surprisingly not. It has a great mix of spices, and was absolutely delicious. And, funnily enough, quite calming. Adagio also included a free sampler of the gingerbread tea in my box, so anyone who makes an order will get one of the new holiday flavors as a complimentary gift. I have no idea if everyone receives gingerbread or if it’s a random selection from the holiday sampler. At any rate, I was pleasantly surprised by the tea, and I would highly recommend it. So far, anyway. Tonight when I get home, I’m going to try the cranberry.
