Adagio Teas


~ Review post - I was gifted Adagio tea in exchange for an honest review - this post also contains affiliate links ~

You know I love tea.

It's probably quite safe to describe me as a bit of a tea monster.

I LOVE tea!

Now not just your regular breakfast tea aka Tetley and PG Tips, I'm really into herbal teas too.

If you've followed my blog for a while I'm sure you would of picked up on this. As I have written about it a couple of times previous.

So when the lovely people over at Adagio Teas asked if I wanted to try some of their tea, of course I said YES!

To my utter delight and surprise the biggest box turned up at my P.O Box and when I opened it I was gobsmacked.

The biggest amount of tea you could imagine. It was incredible. Not only had Adagio Teas sent me the greatest assortment of black and green teas, but also a glass mug and a ingenuiTEA teapot. Absolutely incredible I felt, and still feel so spoilt by them.


So first of all I scrambled through all the packages of different teas inside. All with amazing names which I have never heard of before, golden monkey, earl grey moonlight, pu-erh poedarjeeling sungma summer, mango green, jasmine chun hao and the list goes on. There was me thinking I was quite clued up on all things tea - how wrong was I. 

But what I do know is, tea is good for you and green tea is super good for you. Green tea has so many benefits that includes weight loss, helps protect heart health, helps protect brain cells (which I certainly need help with in that department, as I probably zapped many in my Cabin Crew days drinking down route!) promotes bone health and protects eye disease and helps vision.

OK, so amongst all the loose tea there was one pack of Pu-erh Tea-bags.

So these were my first try. No real reason I was just being pure lazy and teabags seemed the easiest option.


I poured my boiling hot water onto my very fancy pyramid pu-erh hazelberry teabag.

I left it to steep. (a new word I've learnt - Steep means to soak. We soak our tea. I feel very fancy now, haha.)

I wasn't sure if I was going to like it to be honest, as the list of ingredients I wouldn't of normally of chosen for myself. This teabag is described as - pu erh with rich hazelnut and playful strawberry with a hint of cream.

But, it was surprisingly nice. It was quite a subtle flavour and tasty, but I could only have one cup at a time. For me this wasn't a drink all day cup after cup tea. 

All my other samples are loose-leaf tea, so that's where the ingenuiTEA teapot came into play.

OK, now, I will be honest with you guys, but I was really confused with how this worked. I hope it's not only me, but I was really baffled about what this little teapot did and where you're supposed to put the leaves!

I was twisting things off the bottom as I thought the leaves went in the little thing in the centre of the pot - I was trying to pour leaves through this teeny tiny hole in the bottom. Literally scratching my head at how this teapot worked. You see, this is what I'm here for, to be a little guinea pig and try these things out so I can report back to you. Which ultimately makes your life easier! 

In the end I had to contact my best friend. My best Internet friend. Google. Google is the best, lol! 

It turns out you don't have to pull or twist anything, you simply pop the leaves in the top and add your hot water. OK, I feel truly silly now. You then let it steep. Then, then my favourite part which I could literally do all day (and if you follow me on insta stories you may of seen the boomerang I posted!) You then put the ingenuiTEA teapot on top of your glass mug (always been a fan of herbal teas in a glass mug, has to be glass!) then like magic the tea pours out of the bottom and into the mug. Magic, pure magic. There probably is some science to it as there's some sort of suction, but I prefer to see it as magic! Magic pouring tea, the best 


OK, so since my new found toy teapot I have started trying the loose tea. So far I have tried, vanilla green, cocomint green and sleeping dragon green tea.

I absolutely loved both the vanilla green and cocomint green as they were so subtle and so easily drinkable cup after cup. Unfortunately, I wasn't too keen on the sleeping dragon green tea which I found far too strong with a bit of an after taste. That really surprised me, as I love just regular pu-erh, which is normally an acquired taste.

So far though, overall, I'm really enjoying the teas from Adagio and I love all the fun names they have. I'm looking forward to keep trying all the different flavours I've been sent. I will be trying them all regularly and will be posting on my insta stories, so make sure you follow me here to see what my next flavour is gonna be!

Sometimes teas can be a bit boring so I love it when they're made fun and interesting. 
I really am loving discovering all these new flavours!

Thank you so much Adagio Teas!

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
