img_0758Adagio 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_0760My two teas arrived in a lovely box inside another box. Clearly the people behind Adagio Teas put some thought into presentation.

img_0761In addition to the box of teas itself, I was delighted to find a card encouraging me to share my experience with Adagio Teas.

These websites sound like fun to use! I’m especially interested in teamuse.com.

I was excited to try one of the three teas contained in this shipment: Lemon Grass Tea, Mocha Nut Mate and a sample of Masala Chai Tea. Adagio’s loose leaf teas usually arrive in 3 oz bags, each of which makes approximately 38 cups of tea. This month was an exception: Lemon Grass Tea arrived in a 1.5 ounce bag, which makes approximately 19 cups of tea. Assuming I were going to drink all of the teas this month, since I drink roughly 4 cups of herbal tea each day, these two bags put together would normally last me about 14 days. In addition to the loose leaf teas, this month I received an added bonus: a sample of Masala Chai Tea. This one tea pouch makes an additional four cups of tea. So given the amount of tea in this month’s shipment, I’d normally be set for about 15 days worth of tea. If you take Adagio Tea’s advice and drink four cups each day for cardiovascular health, you’ll run out in about 15 days too!

Adagio Teas always taste and smell great, so I was excited when my package arrived!

Adagio’s Lemon Grass Tea ($6) smelled like hay. Once it was heated, though, it completely transformed. Tasting of lemon with a hint of sweetness, I enjoyed this tea very much.

I very much enjoyed peering into my lovely yellow brew.

Since my doctors have advised me not to drink caffeine, unfortunately, I wasn’t able to enjoy the next two selections. I took pictures of them anyway, though, so you could see what the tea leaves look like. I’ll be passing both of these teas along to a friend.

This month’s free sample in Adagio’s Herbal Tea of the Month Subscription had a black tea base. I found this strange.

Again, though, I loved the aroma of this tea. It smelled of mulling spices.

By prioritizing taste above all else, Adagio produces 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). Still, as others have noted, you’d do just as well ordering their teas directly from them. The monthly subscription cost is roughly equivalent to the cost of their teas plus shipping and handling. As someone who signed up for the herbal tea club so that I could avoid caffeine, I was disappointed with this month’s offerings. Even if I could have enjoyed the mate, I can’t figure out why Adagio Teas included a sample of black tea in an herbal tea subscription.
