A while back Adagio made me an offer I couldn’t refuse, they sent me a gift card and let me purchase some samples to share with you. You may have seen the reviews we did earlier this year of rwanda rukeri and anhui keemun, two of Adagio's black teas, but I’ve been sitting on the last item I purchased waiting for the holiday shopping season to begin. Today we’re going to take a peek at the Adagio mix & match gift set. It’s the type of gift that would be fun to give the tea-lover in your life or perhaps sneak under the tree for yourself (hey, you deserve a gift too!)
If you've ever wondered how difficult it would be to blend your own teas, then this is the gift for you. It comes with three base teas and six add-ins that you can use to create your own custom tea blends at home. You can mix and match until your heart is content! It's available in two different flavor combinations, so it should suit a variety of tastes.
base teas: orange/grapefruit/oriental spice
add-ins: cloves, cinnamon, spearmint, raspberries, ginger, orange peels
base teas: chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry
add-ins: cacao nibs, peppermint, strawberries, coconut, marigold, sprinkles
My son has taken an early interest in tea (which makes his mama proud) so I decided to order the ice cream trio. We’ve spent the last month mixing up fun blends like vanilla with strawberry bits, peppermint cacao chocolate, and chocolate coconut. We ran out of sprinkles early on in our experiments, little man decided to munch on them as he created his blends, so we've refilled the glass container a few times already.
Unfortunately Adagio doesn’t sell refills for this set, but you can purchase additional base teas for $2 per sample-size package and raid your kitchen for new add-ins to fill your jars. The possibilities with this set are endless which is one of the reasons I think it's so much fun.
My Rating: 95/100
Would I order this again? Absolutely. I've had a lot of fun with this set and can think of a number of people who would love to have this under the tree.
