Age's Spooky Countdown, 19 days till Halloween: these lil ghosties were painted sometime in the 80's by me. I also have the nicely painted trio my Mama painted as well. Lol👻

They are beautiful.
12:26 am

Thank you! I love that my Mama held on to my little kid painted ones all this time💜when I moved into my new house last year she brought me the set I painted and the set she painted. I was so excited!
06:19 pm

Age, they are adorable! The red tongue and the dancer are my favorites 😊

12:27 am

Sounds delicious! And I love your teapot cozy!
12:29 am

I can't take credit for the cozy - it's a Tea Mitten knitted by my mother!
06:18 pm

Victoria that sounds delicious.😊
12:29 am

Victoria, If they are anything like your tea blends, the flavor must be outta this world great!
12:34 am

I love the cozy in your picture. Did you make it? I am tasting baked beans with pear butter on Boston brown bread
12:50 am
user icon
My mom made it! It's a slightly modified version of the Tea Mitten pattern on Ravelry. My picture doesn't show them, but the buttons used to close the back part of it by the handle look like little balls of yarn!

Sounds delicious 🍐

I did not go necessarily by the them of the tea. Instead I went with my haunted mansion new items. Well old cup cup is from the 45th anniversary of HM. the Minnie I just got her the new HM outfit. And the diorama is my newest. I am really having fun finding these and putting them together. I thought the ghost Gulp goes with then theme as well as, “whenever candle light flickers” By count R.j. Von Dracula
12:32 am
user icon
Tiffany, the diorama is so cool!
06:17 am
user icon
I am loving these! They are new at Disneyland. This is my fourth one. The first two were basically Disneyland and then Disney California adventures. But now they seem to coming out with the rides too! So I now have small world and the Haunted mansion. :) I hope they do more!
09:12 am

I love your picture!

Such a cool idea! Great collectible too 😊

I am still pumped from this mornings caffeine. Can’t afford mow stimulation since it is way past bedtime. Sorry no tea in my picture but the beauty of a pear tree stands alone. I think this one is a Bradford but what can you expect at 12:35 am? Good morning all. See you in a few hours.
12:37 am
user icon
It certainly looks like a Bradford. It's lovely!
12:38 am
user icon
I'm in the rare minority in my neck of the woods who love Bradfords. Everyone that I know including my daughters don't like them. I guess with the kind of storms we get, part of the tree can hit the ground making the tree to look lopsided. And in Spring as we live in tornado alley, the ground can be littered with small white petals. I've never minded it.
02:56 pm
user icon
Sue, your drawing is fantastic.
12:37 am

Thank you Julie. Your photo is priceless, I love it!

Excellent. This has been on my list of teas to try!
01:25 am

I have not been taking many photos lately so for my pic you get my new coasters. Today's tea is a good one and I love it.
12:41 am
user icon
Sherlock, that is a very clever use of resources. Warms my conservation-minded heart.
07:22 am
user icon
Same! I've been inspired by the books I'm reading, my recent tea order, my recent tea house visit. Those will be my pics for a while :)
09:03 am
user icon
Sherlock, my hubby does the same thing. He is an architect and always bringing homes samples. We have glass, wood, and cork coasters. I need to find something else to make now. Have enough coasters for a small party😝
09:05 am
user icon
Jamie, Do acrylic paint pours on them and seal them with spar verathane, use some of the cork to put on the bottom to use as coasters for tea cups. Give friends or co-workers a thrift shop teacup find and a sample of Adagio tea. Then we can have more friends to enable and chat with.It's a plan.lol

This doesn’t taste like pear to me, which is a little disappointing. But somehow I still enjoyed it. 🤷🏼‍♀️
12:43 am

This was a very enjoyable treat. I was getting tired of only black teas. This is smooth reminds me of Peony and roses.

What do the accolades get members?
12:48 am

Look right below this chat. It gives the amounts needed and the items you can get.
12:50 am

Also extra reaction emojis :)
09:26 am

I dont see anything.
01:09 am

I just have stickers for 100. But I have way more points. Wondering how many I need to get something cool.
01:11 am
user icon
1500 for a mug, 2500 for a month of Communitea to gift to someone else, like a friend or family member. Also, more accolades gets you more teamojis for the chat 😊
01:13 am
user icon
If you’re viewing on a phone, you only see the rewards you qualify for in vertical mode. If you turn the phone horizontal, you can see the other rewards and how many points it takes.
05:33 am

Good to know
06:30 am

Cool thanks. Figured I needed more points in order to show.

I am new to all this so still trying to learn. I am curious if the December teas will be hoilday themed like October.
01:17 am
user icon
I would think so.
01:31 am
user icon
Oh yes, most definitely. 😊 CommuniTEA tends to be seasonally appropriate (lots of green and fruit in the summer, cozy teas in the winter) and I’m looking forward to it. Not a member last year but I kept tabs on this page at the time. Just like the Wicked Tea collection is available now for Halloween there were Tinsel Teas for Christmas and little stocking stuffer tins of festive flavors, plus the advent calendar and reindeer fuel tea that are currently on the rewards page.
01:32 am
user icon
Soooo excited for all the seasonal loot!
09:03 am
user icon
Thankyou Erin for being so quick to answer questions that I don’t understand yet about this club. I noticed today that there was a negative response to a review and also one that was colored. They are opinions by the writer aren’t they? I don’t see how you cannot respect each other’s opinion. Tell us newer ones how those votes work please

FYI if you are trying to decide whether to get CommuniTEA, Ilya has made it so that you can preview the contents of the next month starting on the 15th before sales for that month close on the 19th. For example, this Friday the 15th you should be able to click the October schedule below and see an option to peek at the November lineup as well.

Teamojis are actually really cute, any of y'all ever done any art/plushies/etc. of them?
01:56 am
user icon
I made a mug out of the smile and tongue teamojis. I’ll use it in my photo tomorrow!
05:35 am
user icon
We put them on the communiTEA sticker pack and mug that you can get in exchange for accolades below the chat :)
09:27 am
user icon
What are you talking about?
02:56 pm
user icon
Usually when someone “likes” or responds to a comment using a smiley face, for example, the little smiling image is called an emoji. Adagio has these adorable teacup emojis for us in CommuniTEA: TEAmojis! I just responded to your question with a happy faced teamoji.

Decided to try this one cold-steeped! White tea is finnicky when hot, and fruity teas are great cold so I'm looking forward to this one! It had a very strong fruity smell when I opened the package.
03:19 am
user icon
I prefer this one cold brewed. I think the fruit flavor comes out a bit more.
09:09 am
user icon
Great tea!
03:21 am

Light and delicious with just a hint of pear. Great with a touch of honey.
04:24 am

I am looking forward to trying today's tea! I am going to need to caffeine, though. Both Tut and Ares decided they had to sleep next to me last night, which means I had no room to get comfortable. Sigh....

I had this iced, but might have preferred it hot.

Good morning, all! Hope you are enjoying this morning’s tea! I’m enjoying a cuppa of Reindeer Fuel as a hot almond milk latte. Is the tea of the day as light of a flavor as it sounds like it would be?
06:23 am
user icon
Yeah it's light but really works well with the white tea
06:25 am
user icon
I am excited to open that one up! The latte sounds delicious 😊
06:38 am
user icon
How did you end up liking the tea? The latte was good, but next time, I might add less almond milk in the tea/almond milk ratio. I like my tea a bit stronger.
06:44 pm
user icon
Good morning! I'm getting ready to try it, once you come out of your room, LOL I'll let you taste it if you like.
10:24 am

Thanks, Mom. I know you love this tea, but it is all yours, lol! Way too light for me!

Just a quick good morning to everyone. Today's tea is pear-fect! (Sorry, couldn't resist. The word "pear" works so well in puns.)

Julie P. Love that kitty pic today! The look on the cat's face is priceless, looks like they know they are in trouble and don't care! Lighting in your picture makes your cat look more devilish too! Love it! 😻

Good morning everyone! I'm still under the weather and will be drinking my speedy recovery. Can't wait time try this one when this cold is gone!
07:05 am

Good luck, Stephanie. My cold symptoms lasted almost 3 weeks. I've still got a lingering irritated throat that appreciates lemony teas.

I hope the tea does it’s job and you feel better soon!

Happy Wednesday, my fine tea folks! I put up a really bad lazy photo first thing this morning and then switched it out for one of Festus and Zoey. Festus put on his best Halloween face, just to prove his point that white cats can be scary too. (He's actually quite friendly and sweet....just has RBF ha ha) Zoey who looks sweet is actually the one that tends to have a bit of an evil, spoiled streak.
07:07 am

Happy Wednesday Julie, have another great day!

This is a more flavorful tea than I expected for a white tea. I wish I could find real pears that tasted like this.

UUGGHH!! I am still finding my chat messages NOT posting smoothly, even after waiting quite a few seconds. The moment I hit SEND the SECOND time, my message finally shows up - only now there are two of them!!
01:58 pm

Sorry to hear that! If you don't currently have a shopping cart going... Maybe try refreshing your cookies/cache? That sometimes helps. I wouldn't recommend that if you have items in your cart you don't want to lose, though!

Also, I want to point out that one of the Best Adagio tea photo takers and tea paring with food people is CommuniTea member Hong Zhi Zhu, who is back for October after a few months break. However, I believe he lives in a very different time zone, so his photos are usually the LAST ones to be posted. I have been going back the next day to see them, and suggest you all do the same. They are masterpieces, and worth a look. He is an inspiration to me and helps me to expand how and what I put in my photos. He is still the best and I hope you get to see his excellent work.
09:25 am

Thank you for the tip. His use of color is lovely. Great photography!

I did! I took the first cup with me to training (loose tea in paper filter). Making the tea bag might have been the wrong idea for me. This one, you have to steep it right to really enjoy it. Later that afternoon, I had my second with a few minutes steeping and be done. The second cup was better.

I just have to say that this place is always comforting. I am not usually chatty. I like one word responses, but I am a Scorpio, so that's normal for me. But, the CommuniTEA is just about the kindest place on earth, as far as social media is concerned. I wanted to thank all of you for never being snarky or ill-mannered or mean. We come together because we have a mutual passion: Tea. That being said, when I opened today's packet it smelled like paint. I steeped for three minutes. I could smell paint and fruit. I added vanilla creamer. Oh, goodness. White Pear is really tasty! Love it!! Have a beautiful day, all. It's supposed rain here later. Thunderstorms are my favorite weather. Hugs all around!!

lol, those two live in my office and we actually got to have tea together again! Pear Deck is a great educational program, and I'm a certified Pear Deck coach, so I have lots of pear swag 😂

Chris D noticed today while we were sipping that on the phone web browser version of the site, there's a tea timer on the tea home page - is this new or have I been completely missing that all this time!?
11:07 am
user icon
Wow! Good eyes! I've not seen that before and use the mobile browser quite a bit. I'm guessing it is new.
11:13 am
user icon
I didn't see it on my computer browser - if it is new, I may need to clear my cache. But that's a fun feature to have!
11:16 am
user icon
Hmm! I know it's been there- maybe it got hidden accidentally for awhile, and Ilya cleaned up some code so now it's back?
11:36 am
user icon
Oh i want to check that out! I always love a special timer for tea!
11:17 am
user icon
Not sure if I’ve seen it on the site’s home page, but each individual tea’s page usually has a tea timer button right below its photo and pricing sections.
11:24 am
user icon
Yes, that's where we're looking. I meant page for the tea vs. today's communitea page. Sorry, that was a confusing description on my part!
11:29 am
user icon
Ah! Ok, I'm not going crazy >.< Yes, the app has the same feature as well on product pages! The only reason I guessed that the timer would have been on the homepage as you said is that I know Ilya has been busy with other projects lately! I did learn that you can search for "tea timer" and the first result will bring you to English Breakfast's timer lol
11:33 am
user icon
I feel like it's been there - but I can't seem to find it myself lol I don't use the mobile version often. You know Ilya likes to hide things from me ;)
11:26 am
user icon
Yep, Elizabeth, it hit me we were saying the same thing as I stepped away to brew my next cup and make breakfast.
11:39 am
user icon
I tried the tea timer on my iphone the other day. If my phone closed the window or I navigated to a different app, the timer stopped. Not very useful for a timer if you are using a phone.
11:46 am
user icon
Yep I concur. It doesn’t work for me as I use a very short display setting on iPhone. When the screen goes dark the timer pauses. 😅
04:18 pm
user icon
I encountered the same thing (android phone) so ended up going back to my microwave timer for reliability!
08:21 pm
user icon
I always like the idea of white teas but I never really enjoy them. I want a black tea or robust oolong in the morning and decaf or herbal in the afternoon and I never end up drinking my low caffeine white teas. I compared the white pear with the white peach that I have in stock. The pear was much more flavorful even though it brewed lighter. However, my peach is several years old so it has probably lost a lot of flavor in that time. The pear flavor was very pronounced and pleasant and a very nice tea.
11:54 am
user icon
White pear! Super tasty. This morning though called for some spicy chai, so I'm having the Albedo I got from my mystery box to wake up. This tea is more suited for the afternoon.
11:55 am

I wasn't expecting to like this tea, but I actually love it. So delicious!

Me too. I smelled it on the package and thought this would not be a keeper… I actually enjoyed it.

Ruth, I am so happy you received some good news in regard to your best friend. I had a long conversation this morning with my bestie (we are 71 and have known each other since we were 3). She is so precious to me...I can only imagine how distraught I would be if she were sick. We may be separated by over a thousand miles but our hearts are next door neighbors. She is blessed to have you as her best friend.

I was sad because of this tea, I couldn't taste any pear flavor. 😭
01:24 pm

Same! I smelled pear in the packet but it was more like artificial pear candy and I didn’t taste it thank goodness. I think we got bad samples, based on everyone else’s comments. 😢 It happens sometimes.
02:28 pm

More reason to buy a sample? 💁🏻‍♀️

Not unusual here in October. We're at 7,000 feet! But our winters are normally pretty mild with snow days interspersed with sunny 60 degree days.
03:33 pm
user icon
Yup, Wyoming usually gets a snowstorm in mid-October. Only 3 inches this time. I’m at 5000 ft elevation, so the mountains got a lot more snow. It’s melting quickly today and should get back to normal fall weather in a couple of days. I have a ton of leaves to rake once they dry out! 🍂

I would have gladly taken that over last year's ice storm that happened days before Halloween.

not much going on in my neck of the woods. HOWEVER, a few nights ago my husband and I did not follow the warning on the Wicked Set- Monster Mash tea and we spent most of the night pacing the floor wishing we had something to take to counter act the affects of the caffeine. Took me a day to figure out what happened, bahaha. So yea, Monster Mash is not safe for me to drink after 4PM

Exciting: I had a job interview today and I feel I nailed it! I am not certain whether I want the job, but it's good to have options.

Alright, folx, today's tea has inspired me to take another crack at a Poached Pear blend. But since there are four primary flavors in poached pears and we only have the option to use three teas in a blend, I need help deciding which flavors to prioritize. White Pear is obvie going to be the main flavor, but of the following three flavors, which two would you prefer in a poached pear blend: vanilla, currant (for the wine), or caramel/butterscotch? Thanks in advance for your help!
02:46 pm
user icon
Currant and caramel
02:49 pm
user icon
Currant & vanilla 😋
03:05 pm
user icon
I agree.
03:53 pm
user icon
Vanilla & currant
03:26 pm
user icon
I'd say Currant and caramel bc caramel will carry the sweet notes
03:30 pm
user icon
Currant and Caramel, perhaps using sprinkles to supplement the vanilla?
03:39 pm
user icon
OK THIS IS GENIUS. I was planning to do cinnamon and ginger as the inclusions but didn't have a plan for a third inclusion anyway. But yeah, I bet this could work! Sprinkles don't taste *exactly* like vanilla, but they're creamy enough to get the point across! Thanks for the idea!
06:06 pm
user icon
Are poached pears the same as “stewed” pears? If so, it will need lots of cinnamon!
04:08 pm
user icon
Ooh, cinnamon inclusion!
04:24 pm
user icon
I don't know if stewed pears are the same as poached pears, but yes, poached pears have both cinnamon and ginger, so there will be inclusions for both in the blend. :)
06:02 pm
user icon
I got the notices and was going to reach out, “don’t get discouraged, it’ll be all right!” 😉
04:42 pm
user icon
Ohhhh, between the two of us and everyone else reading this, I had already deleted them after our Tea Talk conversation about Lapsang and replaced them with the Creme Brulee and Mango Sticky Rice blends. I just reviewed them to get them off my review list and get the extra reward points. ;)
06:04 pm
user icon
Currant & caramel.
05:10 pm
user icon
Currant and caramel. Can any of the inclusions be used to give the 3rd flavor?
05:59 pm
user icon
I'm going to take Kristin's advice above to use the sprinkles inclusion to give it a creamy vanilla flavor!
06:10 pm
user icon
Put my answer in the wrong place. 🤔
02:50 pm
user icon
Oh man this tea is refreshing! The flavor is light but not so subtle I can't taste it. I worry that if I made it hot, the flavor would be even more muddled, but cold steeping it really brought out the flavor.
03:31 pm
user icon
I like how this one smells more than it tastes. Maybe it's the "natural pear flavor"
03:46 pm
user icon
Good afternoon peeps! I got my Masters mini-haul today, yeah!! I've just been sitting here with Kiwi on my head, ripping into all the bags, snorting them and admiring the pretty leaves...I am drinking a 2019 Da Fo Long Jing and feeling mighty fine (and a tad bit boojie, if I do say). I got this one called Tai Ping Hou Kui and the leaves are gigantic like dried out romaine lettuce! They are so cool. I will have to take pictures and show you. I love love love my little tea addiction. :DDD
04:02 pm
user icon
And just as you post this, I'm steeping my 2019 Anxi Wulong Low Fire. First time giving this one a try. Using my fancy boojie Bronzor Gaiwan (my favorite one ever). If you don't have a Gaiwan.. you gotta get one.
04:09 pm
user icon
You gotta let us know how it tastes. I do not have a gaiwan, but I'm sure I will, eventually! I know I either have that fine matcha set and/or the dragonfly tea set coming cuz I told the hubs that's what I wanted for my birthday. I made him create his own Adagio account just for me, lol! Evil, I am.
04:19 pm

My next Unsophisticated, Jersey Girl Review: "Tai Ping Hou Kui, oh snap! These big-ass leaves are like Romaine lettuce, you could smack a b**** with them" (while drinking out of my totally inappropriate mug, lol...I will be the first person to get banned from the CT, watch)
05:19 pm
user icon
Oh... and if you haven't gotten bit by the teaware bug yet.... lookout... it's more expensive (and takes up more room) than tea does. LOL
04:22 pm

I found the tea set of my dreams and I fell madly in love with it and I'm just waiting until I move to Seattle before I buy it, because it would suck to have it shipped from China only to break it in the move. Do I need another tea set? No. But what does that have to do with anything?
05:59 pm
user icon
You're from Jersey?? I lived in Deal back in the 90s and I don't care what anyone says, I *loved* living there. I miss it a lot. My life keeps taking me farther and farther west, but I left my heart on the east coast.
05:57 pm

Can white tea be 'smooth'? Whatever, this is not biting or bitter. Awesome pear. Forgot to smell the dry leaves, but I think this tea has a lot of flavor. Refreshing.
04:06 pm

Just went and updated my fandom blends, since you can now have two inclusions. I'll feel bad if "Ponchi and Konchi" ever gets included in the Communitea, because I purposefully made it unpleasant. XD
04:26 pm
user icon
An extra inclusion means someone bought the required number of your blends. I have no blends but if I were to create one right now, I’d only have the ability to choose one inclusion.
04:48 pm
user icon
I didn't realize! That's interesting. I probably contributed to that number, haha.
04:54 pm
user icon
Does anyone know offhand how many sales you need to unlock the extra inclusions?
05:23 pm
user icon
Ruth Perkins- My total sales are at 19 and have been for a while(my fandom is small), so it has to be somewhere less than that. I don't know how long I've had the extra inclusions because I just noticed recently. If I had to hazard a guess I'd say 15, since multiples of 5 are usually used as milestones, but don't quote me on that.

05:06 pm
user icon
Ha. She didn’t, but she did get one of the many treats I was tempting her with to stay in frame. There was lots of licking with that! I also might have accidentally dropped one IN the tea (fortunately, since I took it last night, it was not actually today’s tea. Spoiler. If there’s tea in my tea picture, it’s usually sloth 😂)
10:03 pm

You guys, in my Masters haul there were gifts from Heather, Jeff, Emily, and Meg! And Adagio! You guys are the bestest (aside from Festus), Thank you so much!! I can't wait to drink my way through all my teas and I will definitely let you know how delicious they are!!! :D And Adagio sent me a little Make a Wish tin that smells like birthday cake and has sprinkles. You guy are so sweet and nice. I get all the warm fuzzies from being on here. <3 <3 <3 EDIT: Sue just gifted me some Brass Monkey (that funky monkey!) I mean White Monkey. Thank you!!!!!!! I am gonna be one caffeinated, tea-drinking mofo! :D

Alright, folx, apparently I can't reply to my own comment, but huge thanks to everyone who helped me decide what flavors to use for my new Poached Pear blend! I obviously haven't it tried it myself yet since I literally just created it like two minutes ago, but knowing how these teas behave in blends, I *think* I've gotten the ratios right. So anyway, if you'd like to try it, here's the link: https://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=192668

I guess this is OK, but as expected, it's way too light for me. No surprise there though, since I prefer black tea.

I'm a bold flavor person ( though I have tasted some lovely white teas), and today's selection was too mild. I had to work hard to find any pear flavor. Good tea, not great tea. I thought of adding some ginger to it, wish I had.

Nice pear flavor, very crisp. The tea itself is nice too, very smooth. I might need to buy more of it!

Yes, get well soon.! Is today’s tea anything like White Symphony.? (Which I despise! I gave away a whole bag, which I had gotten based on great reviews, because I could not stand the taste. I know that probably makes me sound like some kind of “tea heathen” or something!)

I'm only meh on earl greys, so I'm absolutely in the tea heathen basket too.
