I am a big tea drinker. My favourite tea is your everyday builders breakfast tea, with milk and two sugars. I must have a few cups a day or I just don’t feel right. I do like to try out other teas too, the only exception is green teas. I grew up in a family of tea lovers and my grandma and grandad used to have at least 10 cups of tea a day. But when I was younger I was never a big fan. I only had a cup now and again and then I only used to dip my biscuits in it. But when I reached my late teenage years everything changed. Now the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is put the kettle on.
I was sent out are large selection of different loose teas from Adagio Teas, including floral, herbal and my favourite, black teas. They also sent me a gorgeous glass tea-pot made for using with loose tea and a matching cup and saucer. Some teabag filters where also included and I love trying these out has I have never seen these before.
I started of with a Berry Blues tea. I made it in my new glass tea-pot and it was so much easier than using my tea strainer. I also used my new glass cup and saucer which make the fruity tea look so nice has you can clearly see the lovely shade of red/pink of the berry tea. I love my tea sweet so added a tea-spoon of sugar. I only need one instead of my normal two has this tea was quite sweet already. I really enjoyed this tea and it was lovely and smooth and not at all bitter like some teas I have tasted.
Next I tried the raspberry which was a black tea. It was so nice, a lot nice then I was expecting actually. Then next was the chocolate one and again I lot nicer then I was expecting. You can really taste the hints of chocolate. And for my morning cup of tea I tried out the English Breakfast. It was lovely. I did make it in my teapot so I had enough for another cuppa. But I had left in the tea-pot for quite a while as I was also doing a bit of work. Because I had left it so long it gave the second cup of tea a slightly bitter woody taste to it.
I have really enjoyed trying out these teas and still have a few more flavours to sample. So far, I have liked all of them. Adagio teas are so nice and they all come in resealable pouches and they are made with all natural ingredients. I have tried a lot of teas in my time and I must say that I think these Adagio Teas are the best loose teas that I have ever tried.
