Linda was formerly the Training Manager of Adagio. She comes from a strong customer service background and is happy to serve. Before Adagio Teas entered her life and educated her on the proper ways of all things tea. She was drinking Chinese restaurant oolongs from the age of 5 and understanding tea as a tradition reserved only for big occasions in Chinese culture. A few years ago she experienced her first Gong Fu Cha Ceremony with Pu'erh with a group of friends, she then realized that there is so much more to tea than what her family has taught her and that tea is a special time for gathering with friends and family. Linda also enjoys painting, traveling, boardgames, music festivals, and animals of all kinds. Her favorite teas so far are the complex flavors of Yunnan Gold, Assam Harmony, Ali Shan and the ever so delicious Matcha.
Teresa Khoshaba - Tea Consultant
Teresa joined team Adagio right out of high school. Adagio is a great break from her crazy lifestyle as a double-major at DePaul. Teresa loves spending her time inside the tea shop, whether she's helping customers find their perfect cup of tea or learning more about it. Her favorite teas are ever-changing, but Teresa could never turn down a nice cup of Mocha Nut Mate, Raspberry Green or Ti Kuan Yin. While not studying for her Calc exam or sharing her knowledge of tea, Teresa enjoys watching movies, Friends re-runs, reading, and yoga
