How to Have the Perfect Tea Time With the Perfect Tea

by Alli

How to Have the Perfect Tea Time is a sponsored post for Adagio Teas. All opinions, as always, are mine.

It’s tea time! For me, fall and winter are the perfect seasons for a tea party. During the summer, I’m all about that iced tea. Once the brisk, fall days arrive, I’m ready for some hot tea.

Tea Party Time

Mid afternoon is the perfect time to take a break and enjoy tea time. I walk away from my desk and take a much-deserved break.

I’m southern to the core and didn’t grow up drinking hot tea. Adagio Teas not only has delicious teas (gingerbread, anyone?), but they also teach you how to brew the perfect tea.

I love that I can order my favorite teas online and Adagio Teas also has gift suggestions, teaware, and subscriptions.

Perfect Tea Time

If you like flavored teas, Adagio Teas has you covered. There are so many flavors to choose from. Some of my favorites are Gingerbread, Coconut, Hot Cinnamon Spice and Candy Apple.

If flavored teas are not your thing, Adagio Teas has a large variety of teas to choose from. They have Black, Pu-erh, Chai, Oolong, White, Green, Herbal and more. If decaf is your thing, Adagio has decaf tea as well.

You can even make your own blend! How cool is that?

Hint: The Honey Rooibos Tea Cookies are delicious and I can’t wait to order more!

How to Have the Perfect Tea Time

When it comes to brewing tea, you need to start with good water, as in filtered water. If your water tastes funny, so will your tea.

To brew the perfect cup of tea, use one teaspoon of tea leaves per eight oz. cup of water.

When seeping tea, 3-5 minutes is considered the right amount of time. If you’re using bigger cups, adjust accordingly.

To ensure you have the perfect cup of tea, you must use good tea. When you buy the best in your budget, you’ll notice the difference.

You know i’m a coffee girl, I LOVE COFFEE! LOL but tea has it’s place too. I don’t have a favorite but I do like a orange spiced one that I use every once in a while.

My dad loves tea. He made the switch from coffee to tea a while back and he is going to love these funky teas!!

Oh yum, I do love my tea. I’d give these a try. I’d want to try the gingerbread one! Sounds amazing.

I love tea! Adagio teas are so good! I love their Cinderella tea. One of our favorites is Slada Green Tea Peach Mango. I think it is only available in the summer though because it is already gone in the store 🙁 We tried to stock up over summer, but I think we’ve got one and a half boxes left.

I’m not a hardcore tea drinker so don’t keep much other than a box on hand. My Mom, on the other hand, loves tea and raves about the flavor of loose tea.

Hands up I love a good cup of tea, has to be breakfast tea, though it can be decaf or caffeinated, ohh now I would love another cup!

I’m more of a coffee person than a tea person. It’s just nice that there are so many tea options to choose from for tea time.

Jeanette September 5, 2017 - 9:32 am

I love tea! When it gets colder out the first thing I grab for is tea! I think I will take this to heart and see if I can make my tea taste even better!

I love your tea cups! Wherere did you get them? Beautiful. I’m also a tea lover & loves having high tea with friends. I haven’t tried Adagio teas though but it sounds good.

Hot tea is one little pleasure I truly enjoy. Will look into this brand of tea

Liz Mays September 5, 2017 - 6:07 pm

I’d love to make my mornings even better with some delicious tea. The adagio teas sound really nice.

I have tried these teas when I was visiting my sister. She offered me a cup of hot cinnamon flavored tea and it was so good! Since then, I always had them in stock at home for when I want something hot other than coffee.

Other than green tea, Adagio teas are the only teas that I have at home. It is so relaxing (and calming) to enjoy a cup of this delicious brew at home, on the porch or patio, in silence. No screaming kids, no loud sound from the TV, just me and my thoughts. Perfect scenario for some creative writing!

Huge tea fan here. I drink a lot of it. In fact just finished a cup after dinner. I am not fussy – love many varieties and brands but they need to be caffeine free for me. I will check this brand out.

I am a tea lover!! I like to drink a cup in the afternoons with homemade cookies! I love almost all the teas but I prefer the classic black tea 🙂

adriana September 5, 2017 - 11:54 pm

This brand of tea sounds delicious! I love tea – especially in the cooler months, and iced tea in the summer! It’s so delicious and with such a large variety of flavors, there’s something for everyone!

Debra Hawkins September 6, 2017 - 1:33 pm

That tea set is absolutely darling! We don’t drink a ton of tea but I know my mom loves herbal teas!

Jenn September 6, 2017 - 2:07 pm

I am new to drinking teas and have never heard of this kind. Sounds really good, I’ll have to check it out.

Jaime Nicole September 6, 2017 - 9:36 pm

My girls and I just LOVE tea. We have tea quite a bit in the evenings and really enjoy fruit teas, but English breakfast is our favorite.

Sandy N Vyjay September 6, 2017 - 10:02 pm

For us any time is tea time. We love our tea with a dash of ginger or mint. We enjoy our tea in all types of weather and at all times. 🙂

I’m a traditionalist. English breakfast, miffer, always plays Mother. Two lumps, please!
