Adagio Teas

I have been looking for the perfect collection of loose teas, so when I stumbled upon the Adagio Teas site, I knew I’d found exactly what I was after. Now I can finally use my loose tea strainer I purchased in Asheville earlier this year.

Their teas can be purchased both loose and in teabags…

  • Sample (I went with this option.)
  • 3oz
  • 16oz
  • Teabags
Ceylon Waltz- Black Tea
Ceylon Waltz – Black Tea

Where does this tea come from? Sri Lanka… which used to be known as Ceylon.

Facts about Black Tea:

  • Is the most common tea consumed in North America.
  • Since the withered leaves are rolled after harvest, they can oxidize which gives them a deeper color, flavor and body.
  • Contains 1/2 the amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee.

Note: If you have problems with too much caffeine like I do, you will want to go for the decaf version of this tea.
