Adagio Teas-State Street opened today, Friday, November 25th. The store features 60 different teas and tisanes (herbal infusions) along with a whole lot of wonderful teaware. Stop by to sniff and sample Adagio's offerings or pick up a freshly brewed cup of tea to take with you as you shop and explore the River North neighborhood. You can also check out the "Trifecta" tea brewing machine, which produces custom-brewed cups of tea while extracting some amazing flavors from the leaves. Customers are also able to custom blend their own teas with expert guidance from one of Adagio's tea consultants. Many of Adagio's proprietary teawares, including the ingenuiTEA all-in-one tea infuser and the utiliTEA, a variable temperature water kettle, are available at the Adagio store.
(Incidentally, I'm now working at Adagio part-time as a tea consultant and hope to meet some of you at the store. It's been a lot of fun so far and I look forward to learning more about the retail aspect of the tea business, as well as what tea consumers like to drink!)
