Suprise - New Mango blend and tin


These teas can resemble virtually any flavor imaginable.

Suprise - New Mango blend and tin

Postby Teatime » Dec 31st, '05, 11:43

I ordered a 4oz tin of the black Mango tea. (I use the 8 oz at home and the 4oz at work).

When I received the order I was very suprised to see a new blend. This tea has large pieces of mango which did not appear in my previous order. It smells just as delightful. As yet I have not tried this new blend.

I was also suprised by the new container. The color appears to be a pale green. But what really suprised me was the fact that the lid was clear. I thought that using a clear lid was not the best way to store tea.

Adagio's clear-lidded tins have UV protection, which is the aspect of light that's harmful to your tea.

That's good to know, Klemptor. Now I feel much better about the tins.

I like to display the tins at work and I was concerned about the light coming through the lid.

Has anyone taken a picture of these new containers? I would love to see what they look like. Unfortunately I did not receive any in my last order.

Actually, those are our retail tins. The tins you receive when you order from adagio.com are a bit different. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo handy.

I can't belive it Ilya! You're going to make me buy some to see them!? I was planning on buying yarn this paycheck, but now I've got to buy tea! That's just cruel. Making me choose between yarn and tea. I mean, I've got tea to last me just fine for a little while, but I'm running low on yarn at the moment. That is just the meanest thing. Decends into incoherent mumbling about tea and yarn

Ah, but you can use yarn to make things to sell to get money to buy tea... so clearly yarn is more important at this juncture. Heehee...
