Get Festive with the Evergreen Calendar

October 25, 2022

'Tis the season to try new teas and enjoy holiday favorites. Adagio makes it simple (and fun!) with their holiday Advent calendars.
With loose teas and teabag options, tea connoisseurs, and those new to the art, can enjoy a different flavor every day in December.

The countdown to Christmas is said to date back to the mid-19th century when German Protestants made chalk marks on doors, or lit candles to count the days leading up to Christmas. The tradition of enjoying a treat each day from an Advent calendar, in the United States, at least, is often credited to Dwight D. Eisenhower. During his presidency, he was photographed opening an Advent calendar with his grandchildren, and the photo ran in several national newspapers.

While the busy holiday season can leave you feeling overwhelmed and stressed, taking time to relax and unwind is important. With Adagio’s Evergreen Advent calendar, you’ll be inspired to make time to sip a new blend every day.

About the Calendar

Open the calendar first thing in the morning, and try something new with your breakfast, or enjoy the anticipation all day long, and unwind with your new blend before bed.

Each day will surprise you with a different blend. The single portion is perfect, and a great way to sample a variety of teas and blends.

Available in loose teas (check out infusers here), or in our pyramid-shaped tea bags, which gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, letting the flavors out into each cup.
This year. Adagio has six new teas in their loose tea calendar – the perfect excuse to get one for yourself!

Exclusive Calendar Blends

Three new blends are only available in the Evergreen Advent calendar:

Almond Cardamom Cake

This rooibos blend combines warm herbals with lightly toasted nuts. Delicate and aromatic with notes of chocolate and cinnamon. A delicious way start the day or end a meal!

White Chocolate Peppermint

Nothing says the holidays like peppermint. Rooibos and honeybush teas blended with hints of cocoa, cinnamon and white chocolate chips (dairy free), and, of course, mint, join forces and bring you Christmas in a cup!

Rooibos Noel

Another classic Christmas combination, this blend brings ginger, orange and cloves to a rooibos base. With the spicy warmth of cinnamon, and a touch of marzipan, this caffeine free blend is perfect for quiet moments in front of the fire.

Introducing New Year-Round Blends

Three new blends that are now available year-round include:

Always Nuts

Soon to be released: a sweet pink blend, with a nutty finish. The classic cinnamon and cocoa pairing supports toasted almonds, apple pieces, and rose hips, keeping it light and fresh. With a creamy feel, this blend is a perfect after-dinner sampler, and it’s caffeine-free!

Black Forest Cake

This tea combines the decadent flavors of chocolate cake brushed with cherry liquor, and layered with sweet, whipped cream, with a rich black tea base for a guilt-free indulgence. If you prefer a less ascetic experience, serve as a latte and top with whipped crème, chocolate drizzle, and a maraschino cherry or two for an experience like no other.

Cranberry Nut Muffin

Festive and fun, this Green Tea is a tasty treat for the dreamy days of December. It boasts bright tangy cranberry notes with the richness of pecans, and a touch of warming vanilla in our gentle steamed green tea. All the yum without the carbs! Indulge and enjoy.
