More about my Adagio Teas experiences…

Bonus! The other day I showed you my simpliciTEA pot, which I absolutely love. Well, now I’ve discovered something even more fantastic about it. The infuser basket and teapot lid fit perfectly on a standard coffee mug. Whether this is by design or coincidence, I don’t know, but either way I am in heaven.

(Psst… I picked up the cute little tea organizer basket at Walmart for just $2.88.)

Even though the teapot is small enough for one person, sometimes I really do want only one cup. Making one cup in a coffee mug allows the tea leaves to swirl around in the full capacity of the infuser basket. If you tried to make a single cup in the teapot, the water level would not come up high enough in the infuser basket and the tea leaves wouldn’t have enough room to steep.

So far I’ve had Ceylon Waltz, Pumpkin Spice, Earl Grey, Golden Needle, and Darjeeling Rhapsody 22. All that’s left to try is Mambo. Earl Grey is my favorite, as it has always been, and I was pleasantly surprised with the Pumpkin Spice. It came as a free sample with my order and I wasn’t sure I’d like it. But the taste is wonderful and much more mild than what you’d think when you open the tin and smell it.

By the way, if anybody wants a $5 gift certificate to Adagio Teas, just let me know (e-mail: donna at and I’ll e-mail you one. (Don’t worry, there is no cost to me.)

    Your sampler organizer looks so cute. :) I was surprised at how well the Pumpkin Spice tastes. It has Laura approval too – she tested a sip yesterday. :)
