Adagio mentioned in NY Times

Postby joelbct » Apr 16th, '08, 17:59

OK, don't ask why I was flipping through the Fashion and Beauty magazine of the Times last weekend, but I happened across a tea article mentioning Adagio (click to page 3):

NY Times Tea Article

Your usual beginner tea shpeal (sp? lol), written by a kind of snotty sounding new yorker :) Funny she mentions Porto Rico, they are known more for coffee- I was very unimpressed by their tea: a large selection, but all 5 types I bought were stale...

Funny article. She combines herbs, rooibos and yerba mate into un-caffinated category. :roll:

It's rather sad how far they have declined. I mean, it isn't their main paper, but it's still shoddy work.

Oh man, they may be $2.00 a piece, but what I wouldn't give to blow all of my money on them!

Danger: Amen!

joel: Brother, I would take you up on it, for sure. Let me know when you're headed in and we'll see if some tea funds can make it into your secret Swiss account!
