Top Teas for Your New Year

December 28, 2022

The year is almost over. It’s time to reflect on all we’ve accomplished in the last year and plan ahead for the new one. It can be challenging to start a new habit or reach a new goal, but with a little help from your friends at Adagio and your favorite beverage, we know you can do it. Here are eight common resolutions and teas to help you believe and achieve.

Sleep Better

Getting enough sleep is a crucial part of overall health. Poor sleep can affect nearly every part of our daily life and well-being, so it’s crucial to get good rest every night. Thankfully, here at Adagio, we’ve got you covered with multiple sleepy-time teas. Try the perennial favorite Chamomile, 40 Winks, or our Pillow Time Gift Sampler, which features four, cozy, caffeine-free teas.

Slow down

Sometimes the burnout battle is real. If you’re looking to sidestep the hustle and appreciate the little moments, we’ve got some options. Slow down and enjoy the steep with some of our slower-steeping Chais (darker tea Chais will steep longer than lighter ones) or treat yourself to a premium Darjeeling or Jasmine tea. Who wouldn’t want to slow down for that?

Increase Strength

One of the most common resolutions is to practice better fitness habits. Whether you’re looking to do that first (or fiftieth!) 5k or just take the time to stretch at your desk, we’ve got some great options to help give you the energy and antioxidants to keep your workout flowing. Try our Health Nut Gift Sampler if tea is what you need, or, if you just need brief bursts of time to do a rep or stretch, check out our electric kettles and sand timer, both of which will give you short, consistent windows to give your health a boost. Bonus? You’ll be ready for a fresh cup as soon as the sand runs out!

Improve Digestive Health

Tied in with overall wellness, good gut health is always a must. And while a lot of our gut health ties in with our eating and other habits, of course, there are some teas that can help with the occasional upset stomach. Try our Tea-Tox, Happy Belly, Good for You Gift Sampler, or (for that special time of the month for us ladies) Red Tent.

Decrease Caffeine

A common favorite for coffee lovers, this resolution can tie in with our energy levels, sleep habits, and more. If you’re looking to tone down your caffeine intake, have no fear. We’ve got plenty of teas to help you out. Make the transition from coffee with our Coffee Addict Gift Sampler, or cut back on black tea without losing the flavor you love with caffeine-free Rooibos and Honeybush alternatives.

Herbal teas, also known as tisanes, most of which have little to no caffeine, are great options as well. Just look out for the Mate (high caffeine) and Arabicas (low caffeine) in that section!

Increase Energy

On the flip side of the caffeine coin, some of us need those extra boosts to help us get through the day. If you’re looking for something to give you that extra leg up, try our Matcha, Mate(pronounced mah-tay), Jump Start, or, for a little of each, our Energy Boost Gift Sampler.

Expand Your Horizons

At the start of a new year, a lot of people want to try or learn something new, whether by reading more, traveling, or picking up a new hobby or craft. Now, our teas can’t help you take a trip to China, but teas from around the world can help you experience drinks shared by different countries and cultures.

Check out our Gift Samplers to explore teas from different regions, or explore our Roots Program to learn about new teas and the people who source them!

Our teaware can help you learn about the rich history and traditions people have made with and around tea over the centuries and join the global community that still practices those traditions today.

Build Better Community

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we have a resolution to build and live in better community. We all need other people in our lives, be they friends, family, co-workers, or otherwise. And what better way to share community than over a cup of your favorite tea? Here at Adagio, we have tons of options to keep you and your tea friends well-stocked together.

Try our CommuniTEA or Tea of the Month clubs to discover fan favorites together; or try our Auto Delivery to make sure you never run out of your favorite flavors.

We hope you’ve had a wonderful year this year. Here’s looking to the next one and brighter, more fabulous times ahead!
