When only the best will do. Adagio Teas

Adagio Teas began ten years ago with the desire to introduce customers to an array of gourmet hand picked, whole leaf teas and herbals sourced directly from growers around the world. When they started, many tea drinkers were accustomed to having low quality bags filled with tea dust as their only option. It is now Adagio’s mission to bring tea lovers in all corners of the United States and Canada fresh seasonal teas with abundant flavor and intoxicating aromas that will delight them daily.

Whether you enjoy whimsical blended teas or serious single origin varietals, you will always have many choices at Adagio. Our simple, elegant, durable teaware perfectly compliments our whole leaf teas to assist you in making delicious tea anywhere.

At the Impact Lab, we invite you to peruse the selections below and learn more about the varieties and origins of tea, steeping suggestions, health benefits, and more.

People around the world are giving rave reviews:

The Washington Post“Adagio Teas has improved the bottled-tea field with Anteadote, a line of four unsweetened flavors with no preservatives: White Pai Mu Tan, Black Yunnan and Chun Hao grade Jasmine are new; Green Dragonwell has been an award-winning flavor for Adagio since it was introduced two years ago.”

The Los Angeles Times “The stainless utiliTEA Variable Temperature Kettle doesn’t just boil water, it has specific settings that will bring it to either 180 degrees (in 2 1/2 minutes) for green tea or 212 degrees (in 4 minutes, 23 seconds) for black tea. An excellent kettle for the price, compact and pours well. It lacks some of the bells and whistles of the more expensive models but is functional and kind of cute.”

The Boston Globe“Loose tea can be, well, cumbersome — all that fussing with steeping and disposing of the leaves. Tea bags, an American invention of the early part of the last century, are much easier. Lucky for us, Adagio Teas is putting out varieties such as Dragonwell green tea, Ti Kuan Yin and Jasmine Pearls oolong teas, and Silver Needle white tea, along with Golden Yunan and English breakfast black teas. The tea comes in mesh pouches of loose leaves, enclosed in sealed foil packets. The mesh is triangular-shaped, making it easy to pull out of the cup without an unattractive paper tab.”

Time Magazine“The Future of Homemaking: Tea Time. The ingenuiTEA offers a tidy way to brew and serve loose-leaf tea. Rest the teapot on the rim of your mug, and filtered tea pours in through a valve. It’s microwave safe – just don’t nuke the leaves.”

The Wall Street Journal“The White Peony tea from Adagio Teas is a lovely, everyday white tea with a smooth taste and some peppery notes. At $6 for one ounce, it’s our Best Value.”

The New York Times“High-end tea is in a category of its own, said Michael Cramer, a former investment banker who founded Adagio, based in Clifton, N.J. “It’s more like the new wine because of the new varietals,” he said, adding that even though teas (other than herbal teas) are all from the same plant, “it differs in how it is grown and processed in the hands of an artisan, and that’s how it becomes interesting.””
