Adagio Tea Review

My love of tea is well known, especially loose leaf tea. For me loose leaf tea provides a far superior  flavour and it the whole brewing process is something that I love. If you haven’t tried loose leaf tea then you really must. For me it is like comparing instant to fresh coffee.

Having been pregnant or breastfeeding for a large part of the past 5 years and now pregnant again I’ve had to reduce my loose leaf tea consumption and turn to decaffeinated tea. Yes herbal and fruit teas are nice, but nothing quite hits the spot as well as an Earl Grey or Orange Pekoe. So I was overjoyed when Adagio Tea’s sent me some of their loose leaf decaff tea to try. 

The decaff Earl grey was the tea that I was most excited about, fortunately I was not disappointed. It makes a lovely light, fragrant tea that is perfect in the mornings for me with my porridge. Finally a nice decaff loose leaf tea that I can drink without feeling bad about baby.

The blood orange tea literally filled my kitchen with the scent of Spain. Really lovely to have a loose leaf herbal tea with whole chunks of fruit. Like pot pourri in a tea!

My biggest like was the IngenuiTEA. This is a genius product! I love my teapot but am not so keen on the cleaning out. I love the fact I can carry this to the table, take my tea to the table and pour it without a tea strainer. As soon as you place it on top of the mug the tea magically drips through. My children have loved watching. It is easy to clean and goes in the dishwasher. Perfect for busy mums like myself.

Make time for Teatonics

Trying out new teas, it’s one of my favourite things to do. These teas from Teatonics are completely different to my normal cuppa. I’m a hard one to convince with herbal teas. I like a good camomile but often I loves the smell and sound of the herbal tea and am then disappointed by the flavour. You know what I mean?

I loved the concept of these teas and I loved the actual tea in the mug. Win Win. The “Mind Awakening Yerba Mate” contains grapefruit, citrus peel, peppermint and rosehips. I wouldn’t say it awakened my mind as such, but it has a gentle, pleasant taste that is not overpowering in terms of smell or taste. I enjoyed this tea when teaching my Pilates classes.

The “Laid-back Botanicals tea” contains green rooibos, which is something I had never tried before. This is blended with hops, elderflower, chamomile and lavender. Now I love chamomile tea and rooibos too, but lavender in tea? That threw a curve ball in my mind and I was sceptical. However when you brew the tea, the lavender is more of a hint than overpowering. 

These teas both feel like a more premium product. The Yerba Mate, especially brought a boost to my day due to the feel of drinking a higher end tea. My mind was awakened to a different type of herbal tea that I wasn’t convinced I would like. So if you know you need to drink less caffeine but don’t like the usual herbal teas give these a go.
