Tea Tuesday: Enchanted Tea

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*

Enchanted Tea

How I found it: I found this tea on the Adagio tea website while browsing through their many fandom blends. This is same tea company I got the Avatar: The Last Airbender set which includes AangKatara and several more fandom blends and BBC Sherlock teas which include Sherlock Holmes (of course ;) ) and John Watson and several more blends. I thought I wouldn't get this tea in time because somehow it went to Miami, Florida. I live in Atlanta. Go figure. But it is here the Tales and Tea Leaves set! It is a set based on Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit books. The tagline for the set is "For those who wander." Enjoy Tolkien fans!

The Tea: This tea certainly tastes Elvish. It reminds me a lot of Constant Comment tea. The orange peel and cinnamon are similar, but the almond oolong, vanilla, and cream make it more smooth. The tagline for the tea says "One cup is enough to fill the stomach of a grown man." I'm not sure about that claim, but it is a pleasant tea. ;) It reminds me more of Rivendell elves as opposed to Lothlorien since it's a warmer and more earthy tea. Perhaps Elrond or Arwen drink something similar.

Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for three minutes and added sugar, cream and extra cinnamon.

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 is a very tasty tea with a unique flavor and it fits what it represents. Four stars!

Have you tried this tea? What did you think of it? Have you seen or read the Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit? 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)

Don't forget to vote for the next fandom blend in the polls or comment it here. The options are:
