As long time Cruft readers will know, I enjoy a cup of tea now and then. Recently I ran out of my usualy tea and was forced to use Michele's tea bags in the morning. On a recent episode of Diggnation, Kevin mentioned he was getting tea from Adagio. If you don't watch Diggnation, you should be.
I like to support Digg when I can and checked out the Adagio site to see the Kevin Rose Tea Sampler. The included types weren't my cup of tea, (ROFL, I'm a punster!) so started wandering around the site. I was impressed with Adagio's sampler tins. With tea I was getting from Golden Moon, it came in a large tin and took a while to drink it all. The site says that the sampler tins are good for about 10 cups of tea. At around $2 per sampler tin, it's perfect for trying a variety of teas.
For $12 I bought six different types of tea. What a deal!
The sampler tins have cool little printed labels that show the preferred steeping temperature and duration. If this isn't a geek tea, I don't know what is.
So far, Michele and I have been impressed with the quality of the tea. Coconut is my current favorite and Michele is digging the Jasmine #5. I also think the Gunpowder is tasty with a little milk and sugar.Posted by michael at February 17, 2006 08:00 PM
