I am the girl who went from drinking zero coffee beverages to drinking about 3-4 lattes a week (iced or hot, preferably caramel, with whip cream)! My problem is that this “habit ” has become expensive averaging around $20 a week! Add that to the fact that I am consuming excess sugar which is just loving my waist line. In an attempt to cut back on sugar (which at the moment is quite difficult considering that I make a living doing pastry) I have decided to go back to my first real love, again. Tea. I am going to save money and calories. I can do this!!
My brother put me on to the Adagio Teas website. Within 20 minutes I placed an order and two days later I was sipping my tea. Two days!! Love. It. The tea arrived in handy resealable pouches but you’ll see in a few minutes I found handier containers. Adagio, te quiero. For reals.
Add milk and/or cream and sweeten this chai with honey for a real treat! The spices in this blend is just right. I didn’t need to add anything to this.
Okay. You might not like Lapsang. It smells a bit like tar. But don’t be alarmed!! This is a smoky tea. If you don’t like smoke infused drinks or food then this may not be your deal. I implore you to try it, though. The Lapsang is another tea that doesn’t need a lot of sweetener plus it will make you feel bold.
A rooibos similar to the one I talked about in tea part one. However, this one has the added benefit of natural hazelnut flavor and has a natural sweetness.
Okay, here is the deal. I haven’t tried this one yet. However, according to Adagio Teas Golden Spring has “notes of currants and roasted apples” and a “sweet jam and carob aroma”. The description was enough to make me buy a sample. I have a strong feeling this tea will be a winner.
Earl Grey Bravo
Isn’t this Earl Grey beautiful!? Bravo!! (Yes, I’m corny). I am not being partial because I love earl grey, either. This blend is one of the best Earls that I have had yet! The bergamot flavor is right on! Love it.
Tea in jars.
Mei Hua was a free sample I received (you could choose what you wanted). It is a basic but milder green tea. I like it.
Lavender Green Tea (not from Adagio…a quick and fast blend I made using green tea and food grade lavender)
Now, for the real kicker..this selection of tea only cost around 30 bucks! And that includes shipping and handling!! And those cute little jars? From the dollar store!! Win win.
Now, don’t you want a nice hot cup of tea?
