Cara P - Tea Consultant
The ancient intrigue of tea has captured Cara's attention since childhood (when her birthdays often yielded new teacups and saucers) and this early interest has grown into a lifelong exploration. Tea's variety being wonderfully wide, she delights in introducing different teas to people depending on their individual tastes. Her own tea taste varies widely as well, current Adagio favorites being Tencha, Fujian Rain oolong, Silver Needle white . . . and iced Lemon Meringue green, in a park with a friend.
Drue C - Tea Consultant
Drue became a tea lover years ago when her sister, in North Carolina, sent her a gift of tea from Adagio online. She was thrilled when Adagio opened their first store in Naperville where she lives with her husband and teenage children. Drue is excited to share her passion for tea and introduce others to the great varieties they can enjoy throughout the day. She feels tea is a simple luxury to be enjoyed in a comforting, warm cup.
Peggy P - Tea Consultant
Peggy comes from a background in selling premier chocolate and is thrilled to discover that drinking a tall glass of Berry Blast iced tea gives even more enjoyment than chocolate, and with NO calories!! The many blends and aromas of all the teas Adagio has to offer is pure heaven! Other favorites include Golden Monkey, Rooibos Vanilla Chai and Peach Oolong. When Peggy is not busy selling tea, she enjoys volunteering for local charities.

Sue M - Tea Consultant
Sue's passion for tea began on a vacation to Vancouver, British Columbia, many years ago where she first enjoyed a traditional afternoon tea. A subsequent visit to a tea shop in Montreal a few years later sealed the deal. She has hosted a winter tea for 25 of her closest friends and family for the past 15 years and has enjoyed introducing them to new teas along the way. Her current favorites include forest berries (iced), raspberry green, gyokuro, pi lo chun, golden monkey and Fujian rain.
