Adagio TeaV episode 85: Mintastic

Zack reviews Mintastic by Kevin Rose. Kevin is having what can only be described as a bad week, so we thought we'd cheer him up by reviewing his signature blend and helping him put things into perspective.

Fun review. Pretty sure I don't want to drink the tea though. Especially if someone sat and stewed in it. Yuck! Think I will stick to my Zojirushi and not the microwave. :lol:

Haha. That was a pretty fun episode. I have never tried any of the Diggnation guy's tea blends. I wanted to get the set with all four but never did :(

Kevin is a cool guy. Digg is just having some terrible algorithm problems right now. I'm sure they will get it sorted out. I like the Reddit vs Digg "thumbs or arrows" at the end. I say arrows because I'm a upboat kind of guy. But all the best to the Digg guys getting everything sorted out.

Fun episode, I enjoyed it :) @kevin - if it's any consolation I recall reading a research that when people are used to some design/interface etc. they dislike any changes at first even if they are an improvement.

So have I missed them, or has there really not been an episode in 4 weeks?!?

They are doing new episodes once a month now instead of once a week. Don't worry I was bummed too.

I actually was lucky enough to meet with Zack yesterday at the grand opening of the first Adagio Retail store in Naperville, IL and I mentioned the once a month thing and he said he was simply to busy to put it out once a week, which is understandable.

However, we negotiated, so if we all suggest at least twice a month he will try to make it happen. So here is hoping for at least twice a month of closets and color wheels. :D
