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, and Iroh tea. ^ ^
The Tea: This tea is light with a very earthy taste just like Toph with a light berry after taste from the Forest Berries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. It's a calming Asian-like flavor with the White Monkey and Pu Erh Dante teas that I enjoyed sipping in my Oriental-style tea pot. :) Definitely some Toph spunk in there. It's a charming tea that suits Toph's tough, hard as rocks personality, but with some humorous, childish, and sensitive elements underneath. Perhaps Toph orders this at the Jasmine Dragon whenever she goes. ;)
Serving Recommendations: I steeped this for four minutes, but you could go longer since it isn't too strong of a tea. And I added sugar and cream.
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? This flavor wasn't too impressive to me, but I still enjoyed it. I'll drink it again. :) Four stars!
Have you tried this tea? What did you think of it? Have you seenAvatar: The Last Airbender? Who's your favorite character?
