Expanding the "extras" section of the store


Let us know if you've found the perfect product for Adagio to sell.

Expanding the "extras" section of the store

Postby seian » Jul 10th, '06, 20:13

I'd love to see adiago start carrying the extras needed to make bubble tea. At the moment I'm not into the idea of using the powder mixes so popular at online stores selling boba supplies and they tend not to carry the range of teas like adagio. It's just a pity having to buy from two different places to make one drink. Would it be branching out too far to carry tapioca and straws in the extras section of the store?

I have always wondered how to go about making bubble tea. I do not particularly enjoy bubble tea, but my girlfriend does, and I would like to make some for her (since she reallly doesn't drink any other tea).

If it helps any, I found a fairly good list of recipes on this page: http://www.ellenskitchen.com/recipebox/bubblet.html

I haven't made any of them yet (I just ordered some pearls) so I can't say they're perfect, but they seem pretty consistent from what experience I have with recipes.

I'd had a hard time finding a decent recipe because most others I came across had such vague measuring as "1 scoop", which was probably dependent on a proprietary powder mix.

Instead of being dependent on the powders, I highly recommend using fresh fruits and other ingredients. Treat it like you are making a milkshake and don't be afraid to experiment beyond the recipe instructions.

i'd like to see the extras section expanded too, and the teaware section. i'm not personally into the glass teaware; it'd be nice if something else were offered. or if that's not palatable, why not have a glass gaiwan? i'd just like more options.

Ok, since we are talking about things we wish adagio would carry in the extra and teaware section, I'd say you should consider picking up the SwissGold's line of tea infusers. They make a nice line which includes an oversized teaball which is large enough to let the leaves properly expand, a basket infuser and a travel tea set. Seriously they are quality teaware which I actually prefer even to my yixing tea pot.

I agree! It would be wonderful if Adagio would carry the SwissGold infusers!

Until then get all your SwissGold tea needs from http://plymouthtea.stores.yahoo.net/ which has the entire line of things. Oh and I highly recommend the SwissGold travel teaset for all your tea lovers out there.
