Adagio Teas has provided me with Tea Advent Calendar for the purposes of writing an honest review.
Adagio Teas asked me if I wanted to give their annual Tea Advent Calendar a try – and of course my answer was yes! This is going to be a bit of a different review as I’m not going to be giving any spoilers to the advent calendar and talking about the general product itself. It came quite nicely packaged in a sturdy shipping carton – there was an appropriate level of padding for the calendar box itself.
Each door for the calendar is perforated for easy opening, and all numbered so you drink in order. According to the product page, each day consists of an individually wrapped tea bag. There are no repeats, with 24 teas (and tisanes) in total. A nice little countdown to Christmas, if you ask me! The total weight of the tea isn’t listed on the packaging, and I couldn’t find it online. However, Adagio Teas’s tea bag products tend to be ~2.5g of tea per pyramid sachet, and while there are 24 tea bags in the whole calendar, I believe there should be approximately 60g of tea in there.
Now, Adagio Teas did include a tea list card that also lists the ingredients. However, the tea list is in alphabetical order rather than chronological order (so there is a bit of a spoiler, but not entirely). I will tell you that the assortment of teas and tisanes includes: black tea, fruit infusion, green tea, herbal infusion, oolong tea, rooibos, and white tea. There are both traditional teas as well as blends. Some of them are regularly stocked teas by Adagio Teas, while others definitely have more of a seasonal flair. The assortment honestly sound really good and is a great primer for the Adagio Teas product lineup.
My plan for the Tea Advent Calendar is to drink each one daily throughout the month of December. I don’t want to inadvertently spoil anyone’s advent fun, so I won’t be publishing any posts early. I will be sharing each day on the corresponding day on my Instagram Stories (@onemoresteep) regardless of if I’m at home or work, I’ll be making it happen! Hopefully you’ll be playing along at home with your own Adagio Teas Advent Calendar.
My Overall Impression
I love the Adagio Teas’s Tea Advent Calendar. I’m really looking forward to drinking through all 24 teas and tisanes this December! I’ve been in a busy-mode lately with the balancing of full-time work, school, and everything else that it’s made it hard to really plan anything. While I did do a DIY calendar last year, I don’t think I would have had the time to prepare my own advent calendar again this year, which is why I’m thankful for the opportunity to have Adagio Teas’s Advent Calendar for next month. And if you’re looking to buy your own Tea Advent Calendar, Adagio Teas has it up on their website (it shipped pretty quick from them to me in British Columbia, Canada).
