Tea Chef Contest Update!
Click here for the video review of Adagio.com's ingenuiTEA! (8 MB, WMV file, 2 minutes)
Some of you may recall my recent excitement over the discovery of adagio.com's monthly online Tea Chef contest! A free sample of their tea, and the opportunity to create a new recipe? Count me in! My two tea recipes so far have been Double Cranberry Crumb Cake and Almond Chestnut Biscotti.
Last Thursday, I was surprised with a FedEx package from Adagio.com. I was unaware that the most recent tea chef winner had been announced -- and that it was ME! Needless to say, I was shocked and delighted!
The prize included adagio.com's ingenuiTEA tea pot, a beautiful, fun clear glass mug, and a tin of delicious Chestnut flavored black tea. You can bet I'm having a blast with this handy little tea pot that brews my loose leaf tea easily and conveniently! I am debating whether to ever buy bagged tea again -- which is monumental considering my addiction to collecting empty tea envelopes/bags!
And, if you're wondering how many cups of tea I drank the first day I used the ingenuiTEA tea pot, well, I'm not telling! ;) Let's just say my loose-leaf tea supply isn't going to last another year as was previously predicted. ;) The ingenuiTEA tea pot is just too easy to use. If you love high-quality tea, you're doomed. :D
I am also thoroughly enjoying the glass mug, since I normally brewed my tea in just any old mug. The glass mug they sent is light, holds a lot of tea (13.5 ounces), and shows off the beauty of the tea in a really great way!
So thank you, whoever took the time to vote for my little recipe. I love tea, and receiving a special prize just make my week!
We wanted to thank Adagio.com by making a short video review of their ingenuiTEA tea pot. The video is about 2 minutes long (8MB, WMV file), and shows how the tea pot works. I had never done a video review before this, so it was an interesting experience! :) You can right-click on the graphic below and save the video to your computer to view. Enjoy!
