If we've got something important to say, you'll hear it here first.

What do you think of this "social" aspect of Adagio.

New Adagio Teas feature in beta

Postby ilya » Dec 3rd, '07, 03:10

I've been working recently on a new Adagio Teas section that will give a small peak into the tea interests of Adagio's customers. I've put together a page and would love to get your feedback. If you feel shy about offering a public critique, I encourage you to PM me. You can view the new page here.

I'm trying to decide if I'd use this or not. It's kind of interesting, but since so many folks buy tea elsewhere as well as here, it may not give quite an accurate picture.

Overall, I think it has possibilities. :)

Yes it does. A sort of myspace meets teachat would be cool, but is probably asking for too much. :)

Hmm, not sure about the "friends" display - arent't we all friends on TeaChat?

*Flashbacks of Mochagate* No, no we are all not. But most of us are.

I think the customer profile looks great. It's very clean and integrates a single person's experience across the four Adagio sites pretty well--with the exception of TeaMuse. It might be nice to have a section where you could bookmark your favorite TeaMuse articles, for instance. Perhaps even write a sentence or two describing each.

Like Skywarrior, I think that limiting the favorite teas to Adagio offerings can be a little misleading about the tea tastes of any individual. It might be nice to have a section where you can list other favorites, though perhaps without the ability to link to other vendors.

It might also be nice if the Adagio favorites integrated the ability to directly review Adagio teas from that list. That way, you'd be able to see a little archive of any user's Adagio reviews...which I would personally find quite useful in ordering something new.

I like it except the tea room reviews. Would there be a way to toggle it to turn your reviews off to others?

Looks good. How are the favorites based, it seems like it lists everything that you ordered that isn't a sampler? Do TeaMap reviews expire over time? I seem to recall making one but it isn't listed any longer.

The term favorites is a bit misleading and will need to be looked at. It's actually a list of all the teas you purchased (excluding samples).

TeaMap reviews do expire after 12 months, but perhaps we need to re-examine that as well.
