IMG_1278Adagio Teas Club is a bimonthly tea subscription service that sources its teas from the most delicious ingredients currently available. It allows you great flexibility in specifying what you would like for them to deliver: black, flavored, decaf, herbal or green/oolong teas. Once every two months, you will receive two bags of loose leaf teas that match the general type of tea that you select. I selected herbal teas.

IMG_1279My two teas arrived in a lovely box inside another box. Clearly the people behind Adagio Teas put some thought into presentation.

IMG_1280In addition to the box of teas itself, I was delighted to find cards welcoming me to the club and inviting me to “don’t worry, drink happy”–after all, drinking tea has been correlated with lowered incidences of depression.

IMG_1286I was excited to try the two teas contained in this shipment: rooibos vanilla and raspberry patch. Each tea arrived in a 3 oz bag, each of which makes approximately 38 cups of tea. Since I drink roughly 4 cups of herbal tea each day, these two bags put together should last me about 19 days.

Adagio’s rooibos vanilla tea is a decadent crowd pleaser produced with organic rooibos. It’s a full bodied yet mellow tea with a long vanilla finish. It’s delicious! Its vanilla accents make it an ideal after-dinner beverage. While I love how this tea tastes, it’s also nice to know that rooibos is especially high in antioxidants.

I was surprised that this loose leaf herbal tea was ground so finely; some of the tea came through my tea pot’s strainer and out into the tea itself.

Adagio’s raspberry patch tea was also delicious. I appreciated its ability to display raspberry’s contrasts well. While its aroma embodied the sweetness of raspberries, its taste accentuated raspberry’s more refreshing citrusy notes. I could enjoy this tea most any time, whether hot or cold.

By prioritizing taste above all else, Adagio has produced wonderful teas that I would be happy to enjoy daily. I look forward to exploring more of their herbal offerings as the year progresses. Adagio Teas Club is one of the least expensive tea subscriptions – $59 for 6 months of herbal tea or $99 for the entire year (the black, decaf, and green tea subscriptions cost a tad bit more).

    I buy a lot of their tea, but the subscription isn’t that great a deal. It averages out to about $10/bag and most of the herbal teas are $8/bag. You’re just getting free shipping. And if you don’t like one of the two teas, it’s not a good deal at all. That being said, I’ve liked almost every one of their teas that I’ve tried and I’ve tried a LOT.

      Good call! It does come to roughly what the cost would be were you to buy the tea two bags at a time and have it shipped to you. Were you to buy in larger quantities, you could come out ahead buying in bulk as they offer free shipping on orders over $49.

    Thanks for the information! Yes, their website leaves a lot to be desired, but the actual tea is great!

    I am glad you described their tea club! I felt like their site didn’t do a good enough job. I was looking into it a couple of months ago and wasn’t sure why they had the 6mo and 1yr sub separate from the monthly. Plus I couldn’t check out with the monthly sub at the same time as my other teas! One of the really neat things is that you can blend your own teas and people can vote on them.

      Even I said this to Megan! I purchased the subscription and had it sent to her and I had *no idea* it came in two boxes in one month.
