Adagio Teas: Make Your Own Iced Tea

I was so exited when I found out I was the lucky winner of the lovely Em from Em’s World Adagio Teas Giveaway.I’ve had never won a giveaway before so I was especially thrilled to find out I had been selected. When it arrived the other day, I was so impressed at the huge selection of iced tea I received I thought wow, this definitely deserves it’s own blog post. I want to show off my new tea-goodies to the blogging world…

So here it is: an absolutely HUGE box of different iced teas with a glass pitcher too. Thank you Em and Adagio Teas!

In the box there were 7 full sized packs and 8 sample packs of iced tea. The full sized packs have 6 bags in each and the sample packets had 2 each so by my calculations that makes a grand total of 58 pitchers of iced tea!

There is such a wide variety of different flavours too – I was in iced tea heaven. 

I’m so impressed with the 1.2L glass pitcher! This is going to be perfect for sitting in the garden this summer sipping a refreshing glass of iced tea. This can hold around 4 cups of tea so ideal for a nice little ice tea garden party with your tea-drinking buddies.

Adagio Teaspride themselves on the fact that they deliver the best quality and value, they import teas directly from the countries in which they are grown, working closely with the farmers who tender them.

There is a really interesting section on their website where you can read Q&A’s and stories from different farmers who supply their tea. This is called theRoots Campaign which I think is brilliant and you can learn so much about teas from around the world. 

From a Chamomile tea farmer in Sakaran Village, Egypt: “My favorite part of growing and collecting Chamomile is the nice beautiful looking fields in the winter. I really like going up in the morning to see our land covered with bright white colour from a distance, and the closer I get to it, the yellow and green colours make a divine mix; something from God. Secondly, the village is in a good mood and people are usually happy, I don’t know why. Maybe because most marriages and celebrations happen after the Chamomile crop. Finally, I earn some nice pocket money for myself and to help my family a little bit.

Peach iced tea is one of my favourites, so I was super keen to give this one a try first.

The peach tea bags had such a gorgeous peachy aroma, you can tell they are good quality and they looked very posh too. On the packet: Contains oolong tea from Taiwan with the summer flavour of perfectly ripened fruit. Sounds delightful.

By looking at the website I read there are two ways you can make this: 1. Simply place the bag overnight in a pitcher of cold water. Awake to find a tea rich in flavour and aroma. 2. For quicker preparation, steep in hot water for five minutes and add ice.

I obviously went for the quickest option (patience is not really my thing) and five minutes later I was ready to enjoy a refreshing glass of peach oolong iced tea. Yum! It’s so quick and simple to make and perfect if you are a tea lover but want something a little cooling on a hot day. 

I added a drizzle of honey and this was absolutely delicious and much healthier than the sugary shop-bought varieties.

There are so many amazing sounding flavours to try! A few which have caught my eye already are white peach, mango, rooibos vanilla, citron green and blood orange iced teas. I am curious to know what white fuzzy navel iced tea tastes like too!

This is such a fantastic giveaway prize and I know I am going to be enjoying lots of iced tea over the summer. Thanks again to Emand Adagio Teas for keeping me in teas for the next few months! Are you an iced tea fan? Which flavors would you like to try?

    Ive never ever drank iced tea before but this blogpost has me tempted! I’d love to give mango a go because you can’t wrong with sweet mangoes!

    • July 9, 2018 / 6:22 pm

      Thanks so much Soffy! 💖 I’ve tried the mango one and it’s really tasty and fruity. I’d definitely recommend 💕😘 xx

    Aww, congratulations on winning the giveaway! This looks like such an amazing prize! I don’t tend to drink iced tea much, but I do agree – this looks perfect for hanging out in the garden and having something summery. 🙂 I’d definitely like to try the mango one, because I usually love anything mango flavoured. Oh, by the way, I love your “Little Miss Blogger” mug, that’s amazing! 😀 x

    • July 9, 2018 / 6:30 pm

      Thanks so much Ruth! 💖 The mango flavour is so nice, really fruity and summery. Glad you enjoyed the post, the Little Miss Blogger mug is from Amazon 😘💕 xx

    Ah you’re so lucky you won this! I absolutely adore iced tea and haven’t had it in ages. In fact next time I’m near a shop I’m definitely going to grab myself a Lipton because this post has got me craving it now! 🙂 xxx

    • July 9, 2018 / 7:09 pm

      Thanks so much Jenny! 💖 Iced tea is so tasty and refreshing! Hope you enjoy your Lipton! 😍 xx

  4. July 9, 2018 / 10:01 am

    Wow, that’s an amazing giveaway, I can’t believe how many teas you got and a pitcher too – congratulations! The peach teas look amazing, I love iced peach tea. I drink quite a lot of iced tea in the summer because it’s so much more refreshing than other cold drinks. My favourite at the moment is fresh mint tea from the garden, it’s a real cool-me-down thirst quencher. And I am intrigued to find out what white fuzzy navel tastes like too – can’t wait to see, haha! xx

  22. July 10, 2018 / 8:44 am

    I must admit, I’m not a tea fan-and I don’t drink it. (It makes me feel very sick.) But this looks so appetising, this post!

    I’ve only ever had the Nestle peach ice tea which I LOVE and also the American ice tea which is literally just cold normal tea (yuck). This sounds so nice though!! And great post chick!!

    • July 11, 2018 / 6:50 pm

      Thank you so much Hannah! 💖 I’ve had Nestle peach ice tea when I’ve been on holiday and really love it! Glad you enjoyed the post lovely 😘 xx

    I’m not a fan of tea so I’ve never tried Iced Tea but honestly these different flavours sound gorgeous! I love peach flavoured things so now I’m really intrigued and want to try some! Also that pitcher would be perfect for cocktails in the sun too!

    • July 12, 2018 / 5:58 am

      Thanks so much Morgie! 💖 Hope you enjoy them if you try! 😘 xx

  32. July 10, 2018 / 7:58 pm

    YAY congratulations on winning the giveaway! That’s amazing that it even comes with it’s own pitcher as well – they’ve thought of everything in terms of keeping it in your fridge. 58 pitchers of tea yesss now that is a great amount of tea! That’s amazing that Adagio Teas imports tea directly from where they are grown, because different climates means different types of tea so they must have a great variety!

    I haven’t heard of the first method of placing the bag overnight in a pitcher of cold water, but definitely the latter is what I do when I feel like making myself Iced Chai Tea!

    I’d definitely try the peach one!


    • July 12, 2018 / 6:08 am

      Thanks so much for your lovely thoughtful comment Sahara 💖. I was so lucky to get so much tea! The peach flavour is so nice and refreshing, perfect for the summer! 😘 xx

  33. July 10, 2018 / 8:14 pm

    Wow, what a big bundle of tea, I’d be over the moon! That’s a hefty supply there but knowing me I’d soon drink through it haha, iced tea and iced coffee are my absolute favourites. I’ve always wanted to make my own iced tea but I can never seem to get it quite right – I’m amazed by how easy these sound to make! And I love how there’s lots of info on their website, reading the little section from the Chamomile farmer was really humbling. I’d love to try out the peach flavour as that’s my favourite too! x

    Alice |

    • July 12, 2018 / 6:24 am

      Thank you so much for your lovely thoughtful comment Alice! 💖 He he, I’m doing pretty well in drinking it, it’s so refreshing and tasty 😍. It was so interesting to read about the chamomile farmer too. Peach is such a nice flavour, glad you enjoyed the post lovely! 😘 xx

    Wow! What a great prize! I love a bit of Iced Tea!! The pitcher is great (I’m waiting for my invitation to join one of your garden parties!!) I really like the touch they’ve added with the section that tells you about the tea makers. It’s such a great way to connect with the world around you and educate yourself. It almost makes you feel as if you know the farmer a little! The flavours all sound great! Let me know how the blood orange is! It’s one of my fave flavours!

    Lots of love,

    Molly xo

    • July 12, 2018 / 10:15 am

      Thanks so much for the lovely thoughtful comment Molly! 💖 I love the bit on the website about getting to know the farmer too, it’s so interesting! I’ve tried blood orange and it’s really fruity and tasty! Glad you enjoyed the post lovely 😘 xx

  37. July 12, 2018 / 7:28 pm

    Omg yum! I don’t particularly like ice tea that much but this post is seriously changing my mind. Congrats on winning the giveaway Bexa! These photos are so cute too! xx
