Adagio Teas has long been one of my favorite places to order specialty teas. I love brewing unique blends and the whole experience of loose teas. They've recently launched a sister site with an unique approach to teas. Masters Teas features specialty teas from China, India and Taiwan. What makes this uncommon is that they give you a glance at the individual farmers that grow the tea as well as the regions they are from. The cultivated blends are unusual and delightful!
I was sent two blends along with a box of wonderful tea cookies and a Kawa Mug for review.

This was the first tea I tried. It was rich yet still light. The perfect morning tea. I drank it without any sugar or honey as I prefer my cuppa unsweetened. This was a straight forward tea with a traditional feel. I liked it very much.

This tea was a medium roast. It was pure heaven in a cup. The aroma was so inviting as was the flavor notes. It had a natural sweetness. When I was choosing my teas one of the commenters had said this was a deserted island tea and I totally understand now that I've sampled it! It is so delicious that I don't want to be without it.
I love the approach of Masters Tea making the experience more refined. Learning about my teas' flavor profile, region of origin and even the farmer made it a personal experience. As an avid tea drinker, with a room themed around tea, I loved learning more about my favorite drink.
