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

You can easily opt out of all emails form Adagio via your account page. Unfortunately, the system is set up to be all or nothing, so if you choose to opt-out, you will not be sent any special offers either.

Hubby & I own a business so I REALLY understand the logic on weeding out some blends but here's a little food for thought. The only reason I haven't purchased my blend (& some of the others) yet is I just made a large tea order before Cmas & I've currently got more tea than I can drink. There might be others in this same situation, especially after the poll question the other day of "how many teas do you have". Again, just something to think about as I'd hate to know I missed out on some of these great creations.

Special offers? :shock:

Henley,

When we start filtering the blends, we will not delete any existing blends but rather limit the visible ones. You will always be able to see your own blend via your own customer profile page.

I just wanted to say what fabulous artists we have in our community!

So many of the image desgins for the blends are just so beautiful and well done. I have to admit that I am jealous - I only have Paint. I do the best I can, but I wish I could put together something like the images for Lady Jade or Bolero or Pirate's Spice, etc, etc!

Keep up the great work guys!

I just noticed that all of the teas are in distinct groups. Much better on the eyes.

Changed this page a bit to highlight the blends people created labels for. Creating an interesting blend with a nice description and label is the easiest way to get it featured (hint hint).

I'm new to the forum. I just wanted to say that Signature Blends is such an awesome idea! Very well executed as well.

@ Aphroditea Thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you liked my Bolero label design. But I'm a professional designer so I should be able to come up with a decent looking label :)

We really like the Bolero label. In fact, we are considering adding a promotional blend sample tin into select orders and were going to include your blend in the initial run because the design is so beautiful. Will keep you posted.

We wanted to publicly thank jazz88 for all of the amazing labels she has contributed to the signature blends. Take a look at her three blends. We expect them to get a lot of attention in the weeks to come.

P.S. Let me know if you do any freelance work outside of your full-time job. We are always looking for good designers.

Thanks ilya! You made my day :) I had to do some client work this morning which I wasn't too keen on and I needed a good excuse to procrastinate - so I created a label instead.

I thought that "Pisces" would make a nice gift for someone born in March. Anyway if somebody who actually bought any of my blends is reading this - Thanks!!! I hope you were not disappointed.

Allo allo -

Just curious - is there a reason only one of my blends show on the blends list? I have 3 - 1 heart, Prufrock's Lovesong, and Desiderata. I hazarded a guess that only blends that have been purchased might be shown, so I bought a tin of Desiderata to test the theory - I didn't get points for it like I used to and it still doesn't show in the list :-(
