I'm not really a coffee person. I prefer tea, and I know a lot of fellow writers love tea, too. But have you ever wanted to break out of the Early Grey or English Breakfast norm and try something new? Well, let me help you find some cool new teas! If you need a little hot and flavorful boost to help you reach your writing goal or you're just a lover of tea or you'd like to try some tea but aren't fond of the stereotypical types, these Tea Tuesday posts are for you.
This weeks tea is ...
How I found it: I'm back with another fandom set from Adagio Teas. I decided to mix it up this month and get teas that are from two different fandoms. Whaaaaaaaaaaat? I have the last four Firefly Teas from Adagio Teas: Wash, Kaylee, Shepherd Book, and Simon Tam. Then the last tea will be Patched aka the Nick Fury blend from the Avengers set. Don't miss out on the other teas I've reviewed from these sets! Firefly: Serenitea, Captain Mal, Inara, Zoe, Jayne, and River Tam. Hero's Recovery (the Avengers): Exiled, Playboy, Stars & Stripes, Mean & Green, Double Agent, and Sharp Shooter.
The Tea: This tea certainly fits Nick Fury and certainly has a different flavor. It's very dark, robust, and rich. It brews a deep brown like Nick Fury's skin. The mambo tea adds a very dark and mysterious touch. It's very strong and serious. The Pu erh spice, cinnamon, and cloves make the tea very spicy which reminds me of his combat expertise and cunning. The cocoa nibs and the chestnut reminds me of his more playful side and his snark and that slight nuttiness he has about him. We all know Nick Fury is a might insane. I think even he would drink this tea.
Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for four minutes ad 212 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. Some of these teas you can buy individually for about $10 a pouch or $4 for a sample tin.
Have you tried this tea? What did you think of it? Have you seen The Avengers?
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)
