Adagio Badges? Doctor Who, Sherlock, Game of Thrones

I noticed that Adagio has Doctor Who and Sherlock badges, I was wondering how to get those. Anyone have one or the other?

They also have a Game of Thrones promotion in the works if you haven’t seen it. You get a badge for the house you pledge!

Can I just pledge Jon Snow? YUMS! ;)

I’m in!!
I haven’t pledge anyone yet. If I do, I’ll mostly likely pledge house Stark, although I really like Daenaeris Targarian .

Hmm, maybe for ordering all of the fandom blends of a show?

That would be A LOT of tea!! I was thinking it might be a specific number, like 5. Idk.

tperez said

Haha, that might make more sense

Anyone else inordinately fond of “Hear Me Roar”? Baratheon isn’t necessarily my favourite but I LOVE their motto.

Weeeell, there’s that funny little umbrella at the very bottom of the Adagio page that makes a ladder appear at the top. Could be interesting if clicked. /innocent look/ Lol!

Also, I didn’t know there was a Sherlock one. I’ll definitely have to find out how to get that one. Lol.
I wonder what all the badges are? I know what 3 of the hidden ones are, now 4 with the Sherlock one, but I’ve got no idea what the others could be.

Sounds like fun but the only way I’ll be taking part is if they lower their international shipping costs from $30 per order. Really, what’s the point if a discount if I’m paying eight(!) times more in shipping fees than someone in the States?

Cavocorax said

I agree. It’s so disheartening. I’d like to play along but $29 for shipping? /0\ If Della Terra Teas, and Butiki and so many other companies in the US can start shipping to Canada around $10, why can’t they? I tried asking them on Twitter if they could come up with a super cheap ground rate but … nothing.

Andie select said

That’s CRAZY considering DAVIDsTEA ships to the US for a normal price. I think it’s like $5, nothing insane.

Andie select said

Btw, you don’t need to buy anything for that Doctor Who badge. See Shadowfall’s comment above.

Uniquity said

The thing is that Adagio’s shipping to Canada has been nuts for years. Two years ago when US to Canada rates were very low they still charged $25 and up for shipping. I can’t even imagine what they ask now.

I noticed when I’d check how much stuff costs to ship to Canada that they seem to be using priority mail international rates rather than first class. There’s no reason for that if it’s not past the max weight for first class at all! I don’t understand alienating Canadian customers like that.

I figured out that to get the Sherlock badge, you have to purchase at least 5 of Cara McGee’s Sherlock blends.

I wonder if it’s at the same time or could be be multiple purchases? I’m almost half way there if it’s from multiple purchases. XD

I have really enjoyed Cara McGee’s blends so far. I’ve got several of her Dr Who blends & some of the Hobbit blends too.

You can pledge a house to gain a Game of Thrones badge. I have one for House Stark now. And you also get a discount on teas from that house.

Where do you go to pledge for them Lariel?

My original post has the link via tumblr

Jenny, go to www.adagio.com, then hit the blends button. It will take to you the ‘pledge’ page, at least it took me there :)

Thanks guys! Much appreciated.

I ended up splurging on the Targaryen one – I can’t resist gunpowder green. It’s pretty good. I enjoyed a cuppa with the premiere on Sunday night.
