plant a tea tree!

In celebration of Earth Day 2010, Adagio Teas is allowing customers to plant a tea tree in their name. The best part is that when the tree matures, Adagio will send them 4 ounces of tea straight from their plant!

Adagio says:
This is no ordinary Earth Day celebration. Join a program where stewardship of our Planet is a year-round activity. Help us plant 2,000 trees in three tea-growing regions — China, India, and Taiwan. Once the seeds are in the ground, we'll invite you to cultivate it virtually, nurturing your tree to maturity. Do this responsibly, and once your tree begins harvesting, you'll reap the fruits of your labor — fresh tea from the tree you've nurtured from birth.

You're able to choose the region where you would like your tree planted - the Fujian region of China, the Assam region of India or the Nantou region of Taiwan. I chose China because its Fujian province yields the country's finest White teas.

I think this is an absolutely wonderful way to celebrate the life of the tea tree in honor of Earth Day. There are still trees left to be planted, so head on over to Adagio Teas and plant one of your own!

If you're looking for some instant gratification while you wait for your tea to mature, be sure to check out AdaptabiliTEA's Signature Blends. Spiced Pomegranate {pomegranate, cherry, & subtle spices} and Mighty Mango Mojito {rum, mango, and a hint of lime} blends are available in 4 oz tins for purchase for only $10 each! I also highly suggest Ari's Berry Fusion - a fruity harmony of rasberry, strawberry and blueberry.
