Space Cat! This is a WIP… which I’m actually leaving as is and will be painting a bigger piece in a similar motif 😆
I really like it! Your art is amazing
Thank you thank you!
I really like it! Your art is amazing
Thank you! I liked how it came out so much that I’m using one of my big canvases for a similar painting!
I love all your cats!!!
Thank you ❤️❤️❤️
…and most of my pieces ARE cats! Haha
Looking forward to seeing it when you finish! (And cats make the best subjects!) 😻
I will have pics of the bigger piece when I’m ready to share :) this one is a cosmonaut rig, the one I’m working on presently is going to have elements of the Artemis mission and some of the winning spacesuit design concepts
me too! <3
Thank you ❤️
Love Space Cat!❤️
Thank you! 🚀 🐈
Jentina, Your Kitty is outta this world!! Love your art!
Thank you thank you!
OMG, I love this so much. It's going to make me smile all day!
Thank you so much! 🚀
Couldn’t resist putting my tea cup next to this little guy who is ready for bead and is my Sugar and Spice! 💕
He looks so sweet and dapper in his little clothes! 🥰
Hope all goes well today for Waffle
Waffle gets cuter by the second!
Ah, Waffle - big hugs! 😘
He's such a cutie!
He looks so content, Hi Waffle!
He's so cute!
Hi Sue! What a beautiful sugar skull drawing today!
Thank you Christine.
Seconded from Christine! Of course your art is great daily but today it’s particularly stunning. Reminds me of a fashion ad.
It is quite the spicy looking sugar skull. Haha! Well done, Sue!
Thank you Erin. I like to do make up for Halloween. It is my favorite time of the year. I have painted sugar skull faces on myself and others. I have had fun in the years past making up my face with glued on items and disguising myself. I have fooled friends many times. One year I did a very old grumpy person and went around whacking my friends on their legs with my cane. All of them were so kind and tolerant of my bad behavior. Cracked me up they didn't know it was me until I started laughing. I did a really wicked witch one time, but it scared the kids and some adults too. Just so much fun to create a different look.
Thank you Anneke, Have a fabulous day.
Howdy to you, also and to all my tea drinking friends and my two beautiful girls.
Any beauty we have came from you! xoxo
Greetings Sue, great take on sugar and spice! 🧡💛💚
Thank you Michelle. You have another beautiful photo today, really gets me in the fall mood. You should go professional with your photography, it is beautiful.
Sue your drawing is gorgeous 😍
Thank you Age. I am loving your countdown to Halloween and today's kitchen fairy that your Mom picked out for you.
Sue, she’s gorgeous!
Thank you. Good morning Shelly, Hope you have a great day.
Mornin' Sue! Love your art for today!
Goooood Morning Julie! Thank you. I love the vintage sugar & spice art you posted,it's sweet!
This has a nice flavor. I will resteep in the morning with some honey and milk.
Hello fellow Wisconsinite! Love your photo today.
I’ve always wondered why it wasn’t Wisconsonian instead. 🙂
Excited to try this one tomorrow!
Lovely lovely tea. It is delicious to drink. Bravo to the blender.
Cameron, I'm curious about the story behind your ghostly phone!
My pic today is a tea set belonging to my mom. Circa 1950s.
Margaret, what a beautiful tea set.
Thank you so much! 😊
That is an awesome teaset! So unique!!!
So many of you have such fun teapots and tea sets, like that one. I'm so jealous!
Time to start combing the thrift stores, 😉 it is a secondary addiction took tea🫖
Michelle, Be careful... now I have gone bonkers with that addiction on top of the tea one LOL!!!
Margaret, my mom had the same teapot with a matching cookie jar. When my mom passed away I gave the teapot to my cousin (I am an only child and was close to my cousin, who was also close to my parents) and kept the cookie jar, which I have on my kitchen counter. You brought back loving memories of my mom with your photo.
Mary, How sweet, I bet your cousin cherishes the teapot.
That is such a neat tea set!
Sue and Jentina’s drawings looking amazing (everyone’s photos so professional, too 😮)
Thank you, and I agree!
Thank you. Love Jentina's gorgeous kitty art and there are many professional photographers here.
Ahah! Sugar and Spice and “everything nice”
Should have taken a photo of this month’s box to cover the "everything nice" part 😅 good night, all
At first, I thought the cookies in your photo were the "everything nice" part. But I think the qualitea time together covers it quite nicely!
I see we are both up late again. I’m going to turn in now. See you in the morning.
Karen your cookies look so yummy!!!
Thankyouv, Age. I am converting my eating style to Vegan and I am having fun with the baking. Sort of a new hobby to play with.
Would love your vegan cookie recipe!!!!
🌙 Hello everyone 🌙
Victoria E...I saw your post just before the midnight-switch, and made the connection. You made the blend Music of the Night? I love that one! I've been talking about London Fog here, and that's the base I like the best. And also, not to mention how much I love Broadway, but I also have Welcome to the Rock sitting in my wishlist. So glad to say hi to you!!!!
Yes that's me! :D I'm so glad to hear so many people enjoy that blend, as it's one of my own faves. I have another blend included in this month's box, inspired by a certain musical about a couple of witches in Oz, so stay tuned!
Yay! I'll look through my box to see if I can find it. :) Edited to add: Found it!
And it sounds delicious! Looking forward to it 😊
That is a fantastic blend!
Love Music of the Night ! Thank you for creating that blend 🫖
Victoria, You have a bunch of great blends.
Wanna Watch the World Burn is in my picture today, but I will wait a some days to review it.
Music of the Night is delish. Can't wait to try your blend later this month!
Music of the Night is so yummy. I will always sing its praises!!!
I've got my November box in my cart but I know as soon as I hit purchase I'll find something else I want, or there will be a cool promotion. 😂 So I wait. .
Me too, LOL, but I really want to order…
I'm so with you. I've been holding off on ordering November because I keep thinking there will be a promotion...
Have they ever ran out??? I always worry about that but always wait till closer to the end of the month for our budget timing to work out.
I think you are safe to order up to the 19th of each month. Beyond that, it is available until they run out.
My photo today shows a favorite treat, warm cinnamon toast -- sweet and spicy! The table runner was crocheted by my sister 30+ years ago.
She is so talented.
Beautiful table runner. She did an amazing job!
Wish you could see the whole thing... it has a rose motif. And probably was an original design.
Beautiful Lilly, craving the cinnamon toast now!
Waffle has the “Lord of the Manor” look today 😊
Cameron, I wouldn’t burn that either. Great decoration!
Sue……just amazing 🎨
Julie, Your Kitty photo is stunning! It evokes such a comforting feeling, what a happy comfy cat. That's a photo to frame and display.
Your kitty looks so contented and happy. I agree with Sue--that's such a gorgeous photo you should frame it. What is your kitty's name?
Got my picture up! Not the book I'm currently reading, but one with a title that perhaps matches the tea somewhat
Hi my tea friends my picture today is a vampire that I painted.
Really great job!
Thank you Julie.
Good morning Linda & Violet.
I love him❤
Good evening Linda and Violet. Great little vampire🧛😁🐈⬛
Thank You Michelle.
Wow!! He is awesome, love it!
Thank You Sue.
Addison, Taco is very talented. Some seriously good balance there!
Addison, I got such a kick out of yesterday's photo; our boy cat, Scootch, likes to stand on the center island and reach over to grab what he can when the refrigerator door is open. 🤭
😂😂 We have to watch for her little paws when we close the refrigerator 😂😂
Haha thank you! She's very tiny and that helps.
This is the first time I've gotten my picture up so early. Usually I'm at work at this time
Hello Melissa 😊
Wow look at taco cat. She is on another adventure.
Looks like Taco’s supervising the refrigerator inventory 😂
She's definitely management material!
How does she do that?!! 😂
She must be one fast little cat!
She's very quick and has practiced many times 😂
She's on a provision requisition! Particularly my dad's cheese.
Hi Mama 💜
Goodnight my tea friends have a Great night and sweet Dreams😴😴
Goodnight Linda and say goodnight to Violet 😘
Jentina, great drawing! Going up with Shatner on Blue origin??????
lol! That’s pretty exciting, isn’t it?!
I keep seeing Tim Allen in Galaxy Quest, 😂😆😂
Hello, tea friends! I have a question I hope someone can answer. I usually use my browser to get to Adagio and CT, but I do have the Adagio app. My question is how do you share comments and photos to the app? Or does Adagio app just randomly pick and post the comments and photos?
I think I tried the app a long time ago and it was not the best. I use the browser on my phone or laptop.
Couldn’t figure out the app, so just use the website on Safari on my phone. Works far better.
Same, works for me so far!
I can load pictures with the app, but I haven't figured out how to comment or do anything else with it. It doesn't seem very cooperative.
I feel the same way, but I do like to be able to see the photo winners on the app and the specials. I find it faster and easier than using the website for those two things. I use the website for everything else though. The website is great!
The app is honestly Not Great. Then again, the Adagio mobile site is so excellent that it’s easy to ignore the app.
Honestly, I cannot do anything on the app; it is rather awful (sorry Adagio, but it is). I stick to Chrome on phone and desktop.
Hello ChasiTEA! The app does not have full communiTEA functionality (yet! Maybe someday!). To enjoy all features, please use a browser version :)
Thank you! I was just wondering how some people are able to share their photos on the app. I see pair winners, but I also see random tea pictures of other teas in the news feed.
Double post. Post your favorite tea-mojis here. 😍👻UPDATE: OOPS! I don't know if it's possible to post a teamoji on a reply post.
I only use the app to post my daily photo and to post a photo to Facebook when I get the urge. To post to Communitea on the app click on the chat bubble then click on View details. You can then add a photo. To post on Facebook and earn rewards point, click on the coins and then share with friends.
Great art today! 😍
Photos too. Love yours and the color contrasts.
Thank you, Sue! 🥰
Absolutely love your photo again. You are a talented photographer. You always have such great compositions and lighting.
Thank you, Michele! It is so calming for me.
Age's Spooky Countdown, 25 days till Halloween: my kitchen fairy my Mama got me because my love of pumpkins 🎃
Love the fairy your Mom gave you. I always look forward to what you will post the next day. Love the countdown.
Aww thank you Sue!!! Im always excited to see your drawings 💜🐈⬛
Might as well face it I’m addicted to tea
🎶 🎵 🎶 🎵 🎶 🎵
Now I'm going to hear Robert Palmer in my head all night! 🎼🎵🎶🎤
I've got the Weird Al version in my head... "Might as well face it, you're addicted to spuds" 🥔🥔
same! i don't know what it is but i can't control myself and want to buy more all the time. I have so much tea there is no way I can drink it all but her I am still adding stuff to my cart! I have 3 other monthly tea subscriptions I do too so I am so loaded but Adagio is my favorite to buy from! And the daily tea with the community is the best idea and most unique club I've ever seen!
I keep seeing ladies with red lipstick , in black dresses, that all look alike playing guitar. lol
@JulieP Your cat is so cuuuuutttteee!
Good night/morning! This tea sounds like it could be quite yummy! I look forward to seeing everyone’s reviews! ❤️☕️🫖
It sounds so good! Debating if i want to have it before work instead of taking it with me.
Jentina, your drawing is adorable! Boldly going where no cat has gone before! ❤️🐱🙀😻
How excited was I when I realized today's tea was decaf!!! Woot!!
That was a real plus at 12:15 last night but needed the caffeine this morning. I just added some good black tea to the ingenuity’s and resteeped it. It flavored the Hunan Noir in a delightful tea
This tea also sounds like it would make and a great latte! May have to try that in the morning 😁
What a great
I have to try that!
It does!! I iced it with the honey and oat milk and it was delicious!
I loved the smell when I opened my package. Yum!
I am going to save today’s herbal to drink this afternoon. Sounds yummy tho
I am loving this tea! Sweet, spicy, and I just took a No-Doze to make up for the lack of caffeine. Lol!
☀️ Good Morning ☀️ Wishing everyone a spectacular day ☀️
Good evening! 😛
Good morning! This tea sounds so good
Sugar & Spice is a nice, light cup. Not aggressively spicy, but unmistakable. Very pleasant sip. Might be a nice one to keep around for those evenings you need a little spice before bed.
Taco Cat is bound to be an aerialist in the circus. What an agile little girl!
Hahaha I got her some bat wings for Halloween, it may assist her efforts!
This tea smells like bliss in the packet. I was hopeful, but it is not as vibrant after brewing. I give it a solid meh.
Heather G. Fox is so cute! The tea messenger.
Thanks! I figured it could be a few between him and pirate squirrel on who was “sugar” and who was “spice”. He’s a little spitfire!

I hope this tea tastes as delightful as it smells!
Goood Morning! Happy Friday Eve Day! A fancy named tea Sugar and Spice needs to have a fancy teapot and cup. These were both thrift store steals. It's a Royal Stafford "Othello" teapot and an "Elizabethan" teacup, both made from bone china in England.
Fancy! Good morning Jeff.
Good morning Jeff! Love all your tea pots!
Happy Friday Eve! The teacup is beautiful!!
Very nice tea pot Jeff
Good morning Jeff ☀️
Michele C. Zen is so beautiful. Is that the sun shinning through his ears? Wow what a shot.
Yes, a little sunset glowing through his ears.
He has the coolest eyes!
Wow, that is a cool photo!!
Thank you! He’s just so darn photogenic. I can’t stop myself!
Every shot of Zen is a beautiful one. 😻
Zen agrees and sends you some purrs.
Good morning Sue!
Good morning Tiffany. Hope you and Waffle have a fabulous day!
Julie M … Love your green anole lizard escapee from Petco. Them little guys are fast! We have two of them, Fred and Ethel … https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wxzJg3dy6zi7XwH2tr70UeV6bZeJwmWw/view?usp=drivesdk
Hi Jim! I love him too, 😍 and yes they are fast! Thanks for sharing Fred & Ethel, really like the set up you have for them, Nice! 🧡
They are very cute! And great habitat! I know someone who had Jackson Chameleon, and they set up a habitat for them in a glass-enclosed shower stall in the one bathroom they never showered in. It was perfect, and they could make it rain when they wanted to.
I think that spice flavored teas are growing on my because of this month's box! I never was a big fan but I've pledged to at least try everything. Surprisingly, I really liked today's tea!
Me too Nicole.
I'm just really enjoying the seasonal nature of each box since I've been a member (April). It's very cool to see how teas can compliment the seasons, weather, vibe, etc.
Hi my tea friends have a Great Day!
Hi Linda, You too.
Morning everyone! 🌻
Good morning Carrie ☀️
Good morning Carrie.
Michelle L...love your painting today!
The sun is back today - instant mood lift 😊
it rain here.
It's weird today rain, sun, downpour, sun, apocalyptic looking sky, sun, more rain. It's a weird one.
Just realized that sweet after dinner treats are spelled dessert. So as my review states, it might be great tea to drink in the desert too. bahahah
I remember being taught dessert has more s's as you always want more of it to eat!
I was told you have strawberry shortcake for dessert.
Thanks I need all of the help I can get.
Hello all! After some recent feedback, we added a function to add your birthday to your account since the ability was disabled at checkout for now. Please go to My Account > Personal Info. There you will have an opportunity to add your birthday. If you don't see an option, it means we already have it in our system! You may only add it once, so make sure to check for errors before submitting :)
Yay! Thanks, Bridgett! It has been said many times before, but Adagio rocks the customer service area! I've never known a company to be so responsive to customer feedback.
Thanks for the helpful feedback, Lilly!
Always exceptional feedback! 😍🎉
Thank you Bridgette & Ilya! I appreciate all of the work that you put in for CommuniTEA!
That's great. Thank you!
Yay! Thank you, Bridgette! I have a question: I entered my birth month and day but omitted my year. It says my birthday info was submitted, but the option to add my birthday is still on my page. Do I have to add the year for the info to be saved, or has my birthday info been saved without the year?
Hey Emily! Looks like without the year it did not save into our system. Please select a yearand submit, that should save it to our system!
Thank you Bridgette and Ilya! Truly appreciate how you listen to feedback and react whenever it is possible.
Today is 'You matter to me!' Day. I will extend this to you all in the communitea :) and invite you all to make sure to let someone know that they matter today. To you all, I say, this group is an amazing crew of supportive tea drinkers! Whether you want to compliment, complain, request prayers, share ideas and stories, get advice, or ask silly questions, this group will never let you down! Feel free to use that personalized chat box to send someone a direct message in the group as well, to let them know they matter!
Michelle thank you for making a positive difference in my day, every day!
:) Right back atcha!
I've gotten busier as the semester has progressed but CT is still my bright spot, even if I can't hang out as much as before. And I ALWAYS look forward to your questions/projects/etc., Michelle! They are so much fun and pique curiosity and introspection in the best ways. So thank you! You absolutely matter to the CT group!
Awe thanks! And I LOVE your arty photos and knowledge!
Thank you for posting this, Michelle! You are such a great encouragement and I love what you share to help people. Thanks for being such a positive example!
Thanks! I want to visit that music tea Shoppe that you are going to open one day! You are a fabulous supporter of buying more tea ;)
Michelle, you are such a marvelous outgoing tea community friend. You invite sharing, which brings us all closer together as a CommuniTEA. Each person in our community matters and you make that apparent with your questions each and every day. Thank you.
Wow! Such kind thoughts, I am feeling the love! You also do a great job at keeping the conversations going! Emojis are fun, but real comments are ALWAYS the best!
You are such a joyful presence in this group I appreciate daily. Thanks to everyone here for making this the brightest spot on the Internet. 🥰
Seriously, A bright spot in everyone's day! I also love how you always keep the conversations going, and bring humor!
First taste into the WICKED TEAS and I must say that Cat-scratch is EXCELLENT! I am so glad I took a chance and made it for my day at work today. I am really enjoying it!
My tins in are in Concord, NC. I'm patiently waiting for that Halloweeny goodness!
I'm not so patiently waiting. LOL Mine arrived 20 minutes from my house on Tuesday evening and apparently isn't even transferred to USPS yet. The good news is that they are going from FedEx (20 minutes from my house) to the USPS hub which is 50 minutes from my house, so 30 minutes the wrong way. LOL I was hoping they would hit their target delivery date for once, but it doesn't look like it. Oh well... at least my Amazon order of a couple fairness cups (Gong Dao Bei) should be here today.
But Jeff, what will you put in the fairness cups without your tea delivery? Bet your cupboards are bare 😉
Just got our two boxes today: 1 for gifting and 1 for us to try! It sounds like I'll have to try Cat Scratch first 😉
Good morning enjoy the day
Good morning Colleen, you too.
Good Morning, Colleen! Have a great day!
I seem to have more spice than sweetness in my tea today, so I walked to the Student Union for sugar packets.
I am getting too much of the earthiness of the rooibos. Meh
This sounds like it might be good; sweet and spice is always nice 😉
Anyone else having trouble posting reviews on Facebook? Getting a Facebook app error…….😖
Yeah, same here. It's been happening for a few months now, but I'm not sure why
Big cinnamon vibes here, which is always welcome now that it's October. Got a great haul yesterday (pictured) so I'm very excited to dive into that today!!
This wasn't my favorite. It seemed too simple. Not much to it. In my book an ordinary team.
A) I loved this tea. This is the perfect level spice for me and it's fabulous. B) It gave me an excuse to make pumpkin tassies for the first time this year and that makes the day brighter all on its own. It's my favorite fall treat!
Ooh, what's a pumpkin tassie?
You take about 1 oz of sugar cookie dough and mold it into a mini cupcake pan to make the crust, then fill the crusts with pumpkin pie filling! It seemed especially appropriate today. I'll add a link to the official recipe when I get home. It's no longer on the site where I originally got it, but I used it enough that I printed it out 😁.
A tassie is basically a small tart or pie cookie.
Recipe. Sorry it’s late and not transcribed. I ran out of time today. The box mix referenced is Chebe brand and is mostly tapioca starch. Perfect for the gf people in the chat! I get it from Amazon, but around here both Walmart and wegmans carry it too. Recipe: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-S-jy0XiJ-TRQy_oxXuXmAEjakNW-pn42sFTdlSU0GY/edit
They were so, so good!!
Happy I could share!! I love them. But I don't need 24 all to myself 😂
You’re a better person than I am/have more self control than I do lol. They look so good!
@christine, I know Chris is the same way, so she understands when I say one of the reasons I gave them away (aside from the joy of sharing) is BECAUSE I have no self control!! I know Chris is this way because usually it's her sharing out the baked goodies 😂
Ooh, looks like Advent Calendars are now an option on the rewards page!
Checking it out now!!
I looked through my box twice, but no sugar and spice.
If you message customer service they’ll send you a packet!
Heather G, Fox is sooooo cute. My husband and I look forward to seeing him in your photos. So adorable...his personality sparkles through.
Thanks! He’s been a wonderful addition to my life that’s for sure!
Me too. I love me some Fox. Every time I see his smooshy face I just want to kiss it!!!
I'll give him an extra smooch for you, course - he's doing what he does best right now - napping.
He is quite the vixen, stealing hearts of all that see his cute face.
I think today's tea has a good taste, it just seems to be missing something, it's very delicately flavored - for lack of a better way of putting it.
I am sipping Autumn Mist Green...so good!
I’m sorry to say, but I’m very disappointed with this (my first) box. What is up with all the cinnamon? 90% of the teas have STRONG cinnamon. (Most chais don’t even have that much). I was going to get the advent calendar, but this has put me off.
I understand your disappointment, but don't worry! It isn't always like this! A LOT of people equate autumn with cinnamon and crave cinnamon-y things during this time of year, so Adagio is simply supplying the demand. Once autumn is past us, there will be significantly less cinnamon in the CommuniTEA.
And also, for what it's worth, last year's advent calendar really didn't have that much cinnamon in it. It was just a few days here and there, but there was a really lovely variety of teas in the advent calendar, which is why I joined the CommuniTEA!
Thanks so much for your replies Emily! Maybe I will still get the calendar then.
If you scroll down past the reviews on the advent calendar page there’s a spoiler alert section so you can see what’s in it if you’d like to check ahead of time.
Lol didn't see this before I posted
I feel that way when it's hibiscus time in summer. I'm not a fan so I'm like "Why so much hibiscus??" But fall is my season!
Nice tea today; well-balanced. Sweet, but not too much so.
Refreshing tea today. I didn’t have citrus in the house but would go well with a virus morning salad.
Jeff, I just wanted to thank you for your response yesterday. I am not used to everything on here. Now I know that when I click the emoji, the ones I can use drop down! Thanks so much for the explanation!
Happy to help any way I can! I hope you have a great day, Rachel!
This tea was very delightful!!! I see the advent calendar in rewards and I need to know how to get 112 points asap LOL
I know, right? I JUST got my second Mystery Teaware box, and I love all that was in it, but now I'm short! 😛 Just gotta do lots of reviews for all that stuff I've bought the last few months!
Same. I feel I should apologize to my tea friends because I have a large backlog of items to review if I ever want to get another mystery box. 😅
Anyway, what’d you get?? 😁
OMG I didn't even see that until you said something! Was thinking of saving up for a mystery tea box but nope, there are more important things!
Good luck getting those last 112 points Keri! ^^
I just went on teacritic and reviewed a ton of the teas I've had and got some points. I know there are a ton more teas I could review on there to get the points I need! Now I just need 78 pts lol
BUY MORE TEA
That's the way it works, right? You figure out how many more reward points you need for your free stuff, order that much tea, get the points, then get your free stuff. It will only cost you $112 to get your Advent calendar!
Had to get my blood drawn today and had to get stuck five or six times (lost count), I'm impossible. Prescription is more tea I guess.
I feel for you, I have difficult veins and have that happen too often. Make sure to stay hydrated to help replace all that blood. Tea definitely makes things better.
That really stinks. Next time ask them to use a butterfly needle,it is smaller and easy to get the vein on the first try.
I not only request those but I only have one arm that’s good for draws. My other arm has veins that tend to collapse and roll.
About to put my monthly order in and seriously debating - for those that have friend the mystery box with teaware, how did you find the experience? Fun? How were the teas?
the first time i got the mystery box with teaware i was a little disappointed, in the box they included 4 random fandom sample tins, pouches of tea like random days of the communitea and i also got the spring version of the 4 oz tea container, the second time i got it i received sample tins of the zodiac teas and a whole 30 oz teapot!! so it really is a mixed bag of what you get with the teaware box but i really enjoyed the surprise of not knowing :)
I thought the mystery box with teaware was amazing! I got the activiTEA and a bunch of zodiac teas and random old communitTEA packets along with a few other sample size teas. It def seemed worth it to me!
I’ve enjoyed it. Enough to get it again! The first time I got several fandom blend samplers (a few game of thrones, a Harry Potter) and some of the zodiac samplers, plus a bunch of old communiTEA packets. My teaware was the larger 8 oz storage tin. The second time I got more zodiac samples (impressively little overlap - I’ve only gotten Taurus twice and now have 8 different months), communiTEA packets and an ingenuitea (original).
I got a teaware mystery box last month. The teas were a variety of Zodiac sample tins and a week of extra CommuniTEA packets from June or July. This is what most are receiving with the current mystery boxes. The only reason I felt it maybe wasn’t the best use of my points was because the teaware was exactly the same glass iced tea pitcher I bought myself a couple months ago, in the same color no less. It’s funny because I rarely purchase teaware. 😅
Mine just left NJ today!
Shoot, I thought I was replying to Meg. Sorry!
Good afternoon, tea peeps! 30 more accolades and that mug is MINE!!!! Yeaaaahhhh. :D
Slowly but surely, you will get there! Another 6 days at roughly 5 a day (2 for visiting site, 2 for chatting, and 1 for liking someone else's picture) . Unless some people go back and like you old pictures from last month that haven't liked them before. That would work too.
Oh Jeff, I know EXACTLY when that mug will be shipping out to me (and I have ever since the last day of last month's CT, lol).I am like a freakish, tea-hording little troll, feverishly waiting until next Wednesday so I can order more tea and get The Mug!! And my little presents that my fabulous CT friends got me! I love this place so much~ XOXOXOXOXO
Sigh. I came home to a naked cat. She’s not SUPPOSED to be naked. She still has exposed stitches and is supposed to be in her onesie for another 7 days. This is the second time shes escaped the onesie since we started this a month ago.
Think of how many times Leia escaped in the movies! She’s living up to her name.
If she rips those stitches, she’ll wish she was facing down moff tarkin and the destruction of alderan instead! We’re SO CLOSE! Also. I have no idea how she does it. The Velcro has still been closed both times. At least she doesn’t fight me putting it back on her.
Kitties have mad yogic skills~
I’m still reliving in slow motion my attempts to stop her jumping from the bed to the dresser less than 4 hours after surgery while still high on the good stuff. I failed fortunately she didn’t miss!
Kiwi and the blue soft cone turned cape…..I sooooooooo understand 😳
Yeah. We started with a cone. She flexible enough that she was using it to scrape against the sore we were trying to fix! Cats are terrible patients! 😮
Elizabeth, she probably called Taco Cat, who freed her. I do believe Taco Cat can go anywhere!
Oh the trouble they could get into!
No doubt, Tacocat can leap buildings in one bound,lol.
Hahaha 😂 so that's why it was so quiet this afternoon! 😂😂😂
Pet recovery is such a challenge. My puppy defeated three different types of cones/collars until we just gave up and had to watch him 24/7. Oy!
She and I are both excited to be able to ditch the protective measures. It’s exhausting. We’ve done a collar, the onesies and bandage wraps. But I’ve still found myself looking for at least a little half sweater even when the onesie isn’t necessary because right now about 1/4 of her torso is shaved! I don’t want her to get cold!
When Sabbath had surgery it was 24 hour monitoring, sleeping in shifts, she had a sis removed and had 3 suterers, she was flippen Houdini, with the cone and onesies. I left her for 4 seconds to pee and she was standing next to the onsie by the time I got out, truly maddening.
Leia Houdini is one smart girl.>^.^<
We had that problem with Neko. Surgery, onesie escape, second surgery...because she really did a number on her stitches. Then, escape again ... 3rd surgery ... $900 cat had to wear a slightly smaller onesie and a soft Cone of Shame. That combo finally worked!
Sugar and spice and everything nice
This tea is. Interest
I enjoyed this tea.
Alright, y'all have me convinced - teaware mystery box it is! Thanks so much to everyone who replied, appreciate you!
Yay Meg! You gotta tell us right away what's in it! I wanna live vicariously through your tea box...
Keep us updated on what you get!!!
Mine arrives tomorrow! FYI - we are enablers... 😂
Oh yeah....big time. :D
I really liked this one! The level of sweet and spice is perfect for what I like, I may have to pick up more of it!
Michele, love your simple picture ❤️
So yummy. Enjoying this tea. It's Thursday!
I'm not going to say that this is like brown sugar in a cup (like the picture for this tea says), but it is REALLY GOOD!
oh, i thought that was their recommendation for how to sweeten it😹
I may have used too much water today because mine was really mild. I still liked it, I drank it so fast I forgot about a picture today. First thing I thought of when seeing the name was the Power Puff Girls. My girls, now grown, were the PPGs for Halloween once and my hubby was the professor. I tried to find that picture but couldn’t locate it’ll I would have used it.
That’s what I thought of too!
I barely had one teaspoon! I was about to steep it in 12 oz like usual until I measured with my teaspoon. I steeped what I had in about 7 oz and loved it! I like your sugar and spice!
Yeah, I felt like it was rather mild when compared to how many decaf Ceylon leaves I saw in there... The other decaf teas I've tried have been much stronger at a 5min steep
Very mild tea. Adding a little bit of honey adds a certain something to the flavor, I think!
I just posted my review, and it got me thinking... it would be nice if we could filter reviews by number of stars, in addition to sorting by date or number of votes.
Woo-hoo! My tea will arrive tomorrow!
My husband repaired the infuser for my CommuniTea cup....trying to decide what tea to brew to test it out :) Decided on: decaf hazelnut cinnamon creme :)
Out of curiosity / for future reference, does Adagio sell just the infuser as a replacement item? I think I saw some individual infusers, but none of them looked like the same one used with this mug, IIRC.
I emailed customer service and they said that they usually do sell replacement infusers, but they are out of them right now. Then I asked if the foldable infusers will fit the double wall ceramic cups, and they said yes they do. So, if hubby's repair doesn't hold up to boiling water, I will just order a foldable one for now :)
This sounds like it will be nice sweetened, but I'll try it straight first, as always. (Steeping now; photo soon.)
This tea is delicious! Plenty of spices to cover up the rooibos.
It was so nice to have a blend that actually did fully cover the rooibos.
Maybe I just never noticed before, but did anyone see all of the awesome double walled cups?? I know they had a few, but don't remember this many. So many cool ones to choose from. That Skull one must be mine!
They're the same kind as the CommuniTEA one, just in different designs, right? I think I knew they existed, but I don't remember how many they had. I generally prefer mugs with handles so I don't have to hold the hot mug directly. It's also possible that none of the designs particularly appealed to me, so I didn't give them much attention.
They were out of many of them for awhile. I think they were stuck on the same boat as the Communitea mugs.
I have a few...the bee and forest. I love them especially when it gets chilly. They are like hand warmers😊
Ooh! These are perfect for saving those extra CommuniTEA taster samples in the fridge for my wife. When she doesn't have time in the morning, I'll put some of the brewed tea in the fridge for later.
Ok... I guess I just never noticed they were there. I see plenty of them with reviews already. Oh well. They are still cool. Under Teaware/Ceramic Infusers in case you are interested. And only $19!
With the spices in this, it seems to me to lean towards tasting like a chai. So, I sweetened it a bit and I think that improved the flavor for me.
I enjoyed mine with a little brown sugar.
So, yesterday I wrote asking anyone if they would like to do a snail mail swap. Let me explain it further. I love crafting made-to-order cards. If I have the materials, I'll make a card to your specifications. How much will you pay for this? NOTHING! I used to make them for co-workers. Some of them would argue that they were going to pay. I would argue that they wouldn't get the pretty card I made then. It's that simple. I like to put a teabag in each card I make. I would send your card and teabag inside another card. I will post images of cards I have made. I posted one earlier in the year. Some of my cards have copyrights, like the Mad Hatter cards. If you are more comfortable knowing my address first, that's absolutely fine! Email me and let me know. I will find a card to post for today.
What a lovely idea!
That sounds fun!!
I enjoyed today’s blend. Followed it later with Adagio’s Fiery Cinnamon Spice; a 5 gram steep in 15oz water with a generous squeeze of agave nectar and a splash of half n half. That is a recipe for great happiness!
Oops. I forgot to add my email. email@example.com
Man, the only word i can think of for today's tea is "cozy." Just really makes you feel happy.
yes! I wholeheartedly agree!
Todays tea I think is good, but it does have a bite.
Finally, sipping today tea, love it! So good ! Might have to order a sample size 🧡🍁🎃
Drinking a Fandom blend called The Demon, and my youngest immediately took the first cup. I would love to latte it, but it has hibiscus in it. This is from the Buzzfeed Unsolved fandom (my daughter told me they left Buzzfeed).
I use oat milk to make lattes all the time, it does great with hibiscus.
i'm finally having today's tea, i've been looking forward to this all day :D
Today's tea was delicious. I'm glad it had no caffeine because I didn't get to drink it until late.
ch... I'm here on my phone, and for the first time ever got a pop-up asking if i had adagio's mobile app. is that new?
I got a similar prompt on my tablet today.
I did too. I think it's new
Nah. I’ve been periodically getting it on my phone for months. It’s not every time I login, but it’s not new
Every time I log in
Glad I'm not the only one who got it. I prefer the website.
I'm not sure about the pop-up but the app is at least a year old now
I wish I had this month's box now
Oh my gosh! I got attacked by yellow jackets a couple of weeks ago and we have been having a hard time getting rid of them. We just figured out...they are ground nesting in my rosemary! We didn't know they did that and have a feeling the nest is much bigger than we think. 😣😡🙀
oh, no! I've prayed for quick resolution and safety for you guys. have you tried pyrethrin? it's a fast acting, biodegradable insecticide that naturally occurs in chrysanthemums. you can also soak the nest with it and kill the eggs and larvae. i also strongly recommend a full body bee suit or something 😬
Thanks!!! and will be approaching this very carefully! I am really scared of them after they chased and got me.
At my old condo they had nested in the mulch, it got so bad we couldn't use our front door. Sometimes the multch looked like it was breathing, it scared the crap outta us. We sprayed once before we realized how bad it was, I never saw my fiancee run so fast 1000's flew out as Sabbath and I safely watched from the window. Hire a professional.
Oh no no no!!! Please take care. ❤️
Oh no. That happened to me years ago and sent me to the hospital. They are hard to get rid of. I hate yellow jackets. Be careful when checking for the nests. They can squeeze them under pots that only have a small gap.
crashing early. hope all had a good day. :)
Ooh, that's got a kick to it!
anyone know why you can't buy a 5oz fandom tin??? tin shortage?
The are probably out of the cans. This happened before last year. There is still many shipping issues with supplies. :(
bummer...aw well..a pouch it is then!
Today’s tea does sound cozy—- if you like caffeine free offerings.
Cozy and delicious!
I take back what I asked for a couple of days ago, a caffeine free Pumpkin Spice for evening sipping. Today’s tea fits the bill!
Have you tried Honeybush pumpkin chai yet??? So delicious! No caffeine 🧡
Good evening everyone!
Today's tea was absolutely delicious!! Very nice bland.
Really liked this one today!
Ah, I think there was an issue with my box! I didn't actually get this one - got two citrus mate instead. And ahhhh, this one looked so good! Wonder if someone had the opposite problem...
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let Brigette know. She may send you some to sample.
It’s worth checking the packets against the schedule (below this chat box) at the start of the month and emailing email@example.com with the issue. Mistakes happen but customer service is brilliant and will try to get you replacement dates quickly.
The spices in this are very nice, I just cant get over the rooibos.
today’s tea smells like a michael’s in the best way possible!
Oh my gosh I could live in a craft store.
Decided to peek at "tomorrow's" tea a bit early, since my N24 schedule right now means that my body thinks it's 11am. For some reason, fresh maté leaf flavor always reminds me of jumping in a pile of leaves in autumn as a kid
Exactly! Agree with you 100%
I’m getting a bit burned out on these cinnamon chai blends. They’re all tasting the same to me now. I had tongmu Jin jun mei this morning and it was lovely.
No chai spices tomorrow!
Really liked Sugar and Spice! So much yummy this month 😋
Didn't get yesterday's in time and wasn't feeling well to make anything today. So I combined the two days! Terrifying and cute horror. ^_~
