Tea Tuesday: Toph

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 ... 

*drum roll*


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?

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)
