You can usually find her drinking a cup of Jasmine tea while reading a book she found while sifting through antique shops. When not at the archery range or adventuring the nearby forest preserves, Jenessa enjoys snuggling up with her cats & fiance' to binge-watch the latest show on Netflix.

Jill credits her love of tea to a lifelong infatuation with British mysteries. She discovered Adagio shortly after moving to the Chicago area and immediately knew she wanted to work with them. With interests ranging from history and antiques to science-fiction and classic movies, Jill loves investigating Chicago's many museums, bookstores, and antique shops. When she's not exploring, Jill can be found enjoying a good book and a pot of rich, malty Assam in the company of her husband and their cat, Chai.

A northern Wisconsin girl, Lauren migrated south to Chicago and even after a few years is still enjoying finding its sights (tho she'll always be a Packers fan at heart). While she always enjoyed tea, Adagio has helped her explore a wider variety. Current favorites are Mango Mate mixed with Apricot Green for a day exploring the city, Peach Oolong for board game nights with friends, or Genmai Cha for a cozy night in crocheting & cuddling with her cats Hudson and Fivel.
