Tea and sugar just go together, don’t they? Everyone likes to take their tea a little differently but for me the perfect cup of tea includes just a little bit of sugar. Oh sure, I can take it straight with no additions but my preference is either a bit of honey or a bit of sugar. Not much, Just a bit.
Instead of sharing a teapot from my massive collection today I thought it would be fun to share a few of my latest favorites from a couple of companies that I have grown to love. This is not a sponsored post but one that shares my love of products that I have found that I like to share with my readers.
First up is Adagio Teas. I have been ordering from Adagio Teas for years and years and I think my first order was probably made around 2000 or so. They are a solid company with amazing customer service. I remember with my first order they sent me a gift of a glass vase. Now who does that? I was impressed and have stuck with them through the years as they have grown. I found an article that details the history of the company and you can read that by clicking here.
I recently found a new to me item on their website that I fell in love with. I might have gone crazy with ordering but most of them are already in the process of being gifted to others so there is that, right? I am sharing the love. These little tins in the Fandom line are perfect little samples of teas with brilliantly created illustrations. I can not tell you how much I love these. It was very difficult for me to choose what I wanted to order last time and as I gift them to folks I feel a little sad parting with it. I keep thinking “Oh, that is my favorite” but then I see another one in my stash and change my mind.
Yes, that one tin is a special blend that I created called Beth Ann’s Special Blend. It’s a secret what is in it but I like it. You can find it on the Adagio website but I am the only one to order it to date. Imagine that.
Next up is a new to me company called Artisan Sugars. Their tagline is ” A Modern Take on the Sugar Cube” and it is true. They have taken sugar to the next level.
Just check out these cute autumnal offerings.
This picture turned out horribly for some reason but if you know me well you can probably guess what this little sugar circle is. Think smile.
I have a great niece who is crazy about Paris and the Eiffel Tower. She is even going to have a Paris themed birthday party in November so I thought these would be perfect for her next tea party.
Finally I found these little cuties that sit on the edge of a cup or glass to be simple adorable. Wouldn’t they be cute at your next party?
Artisan Sugars takes great care in shipping their product. Each design is individually wrapped and shipped in a plastic container filled with crinkly paper to ensure the sugar designs stay in one piece. I unpacked several for these pictures and there were absolutely no broken ones which surprised me. They taste lovely and are a fun addition. Yes, they are a huge splurge at $8 for 12 shapes but what a wonderful hostess gift or “Pick Me Up” gift for someone.
Hope you enjoyed my recent tea related finds. Fall is definitely in the air and it is time to turn to having a pot of tea ready to go at all times. Enjoy your day and tell me what you think about today’s tea and sugars. Feel free to follow these two amazing companies on their social media channels that I list below.
