This weeks tea is ...
How I found it: One night, I was minding my own business and procrastinating on Facebook when I noticed an ad about Avatar: The Last Airbender teas. Feeling curious, I clicked the link and my mouth dropped open. This site had a whole set of teas of different avatar characters and even more fandom inspired teas! But I particularly wanted this set so after convincing myself that this would be an early birthday gift to me I got it. XD I got this tea in the same set as a Katara, Aang, Iroh, and Toph tea. ^ ^
The Tea: This is a light, herbal tea with dominant flavors of cucumber and apples. It's refreshing and definitely the quenchiest, but I can assure you it won't make you start seeing circle birds, giant mushrooms, and people on fire. This tea is pink as opposed the milky green of actual cactus juice, but it is still the flavor I'd think it would taste like. I wonder if this is what the cactus juice in the show would taste like and if Sokka would dare try this tea.
Serving Recommendations: I brewed this tea for four minutes and added sugar.
How much is it and where can you get it? You can find this tea at the Adagio website. I bought this tea in a sample set which was about $22 including shipping and you get a goodly amount of tea since you only need about a teaspoon per cup.
So how good is it? Though this wasn't my favorite tea ever, I enjoyed this tea very much. It really made me think of the episode "The Desert" lol. Four stars!
Have you tried this tea? What did you think of it? Have you seen Avatar: The Last Airbender? Who's your favorite character?
Bonus! If you are a first-time Adagio customer I can send you a $5 giftcard! Ask in the comments for details! (This is no joke and no catch I seriously can. It's part of the amazingness of Adagio Teas)
