Sponsor love: Adagio Teas and the IngenuiTEA

Adagio Teas Starter SetParent Hacks sponsor Adagio Teas is promoting this starter set as a good way to jump-start your tea-drinking habit. Check it out -- the reviews are great -- but I'd like to take a moment to tell you about the teapot included with the set, the IngenuiTEA. No kidding, I have a draft post about the IngenuiTEA sitting right here -- I started it weeks ago, long before I ever knew Adagio would be advertising on Parent Hacks. So two birds have been killed with this particular stone! So efficient!

A little context: My husband is a big tea-drinker. That is to say, he's not big, but he drinks a LOT of tea. Enough to have a teacup collection and an entire shelf in our kitchen devoted to little tins of the leaf. He grew up in South Africa and was practically weaned on Rooibos tea (also known in the US as redbush or red tea). What I'm saying is THE MAN KNOWS HIS TEA.

The man also loves his gadgets, so when he saw the IngenuiTEA in a local tea shop, he was fascinated and bought it immediately. I was skeptical (I'm a coffee drinker) and then I tried it. Let me tell you, it's the coolest teapot on the planet. Here's why:

You place however much loose tea you want into the pot, fill it with boiling water, and then let it steep. When the tea's ready, you rest the teapot on the rim of your mug, and the tea filters into the mug! No loose tea leaves, no wasted tea, no messing with tea balls, no drips! Brilliant, I tell you.

If you're so inclined, click on over to Adagio and have a look. And pick up a little Rooibos while you're at it...delicious stuff.

I got this teapot from Adagio Teas years ago when they first launched their website. It's awesome and their teas are delicious, too. I am nursing so I love all their decaf varieties, especially the mango and pina colada. Best teas I've ever had...highly recommended.
