Adagio mentioned in NY Times

by joelbct » Apr 16th, '08, 17:59

OK, don't ask why I was flipping through the Fashion and Beauty magazine of the Times last weekend, but I happened across a tea article mentioning Adagio (click to page 3):

NY Times Tea Article

Your usual beginner tea shpeal (sp? lol), written by a kind of snotty sounding new yorker :) Funny she mentions Porto Rico, they are known more for coffee- I was very unimpressed by their tea: a large selection, but all 5 types I bought were stale...

Funny article. She combines herbs, rooibos and yerba mate into un-caffinated category. :roll:

It's rather sad how far they have declined. I mean, it isn't their main paper, but it's still shoddy work.

I have friends who live on Thompson, so let me know if you run Joelbct into the ground serving your chocolate habit. I'll be glad to shop for you, too.

Oh man, they may be $2.00 a piece, but what I wouldn't give to blow all of my money on them!
