Tea Love: Instilling a Love of Tea, One Sip At A Time

A Tea For Every Sign

Today is my boyfriend’s sister’s birthday, so here’s a happy birthday post dedicated to her!   This charming young Pisces, according to astrology-online.com, is:

Imaginative and sensitive
Compassionate and kind
Selfless and unworldly
Intuitive and sympathetic

On the dark side….

Escapist and idealistic
Secretive and vague
Weak-willed and easily led

All The Symbols of the Zodiac

All The Symbols of the Zodiac

So, what would the ideal cup of tea be for her?

No need to fret about what to get this vague sign.   Adagio Teas has it all figured out.  They have worked together with tea lover Inguna T in order to blend up some wonderful zodiac teas.

But what is Adagio Tea all about?

Founder Sophie Kreymerman started out small, purchasing her teas from the local Chinese markets.   Then, in 1999, she decided to stop working working as a manicurist part-time and start selling tea.   After all, how hard would it be?   Open a teashop, serve a cuppa every once in a while, make a few bucks, nothing big, right?

Well, when you factor in the fact that her son just came home after living in Eastern Europe for six years working with companies adjusting to capitalism and her other son worked in the tech department of a high profile financial company, it might be a bit bigger than expected.

The family decided that the internet was more the way to go, so they found a tea supplier and built a Web site.   Now, the name.   That dreaded, “Let’s come up with a cool, awesome name that no one thought of before and is witty to engage everyone in the internet realm” task.   According to Adagio, “Not only did it have to match the mood of a cup of tea, it also had to appear at the top of the alphabet (the way search engines of the late 90’s prioritized their searches). A brief read through the first few pages of the dictionary and Adagio was found. Chosen also was a theme – music.”

The tea company quickly grew, expanding from their former site in Clifton, New Jersey to Garfield, New Jersey in a 26,000 square-foot warehouse and now ships from a 24,000 square-foot warehouse in Fresno, California.

And that’s the scoop!   Learn more about Adagio Tea and sample some of their wares!   Or, better yet, buy some Zodiac blends for a birthday pal 🙂

Don’t forget to stop by Tea Love on Facebook and wish Victoria a happy birthday!
