Tea Tuesday: 11

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: 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 that includes AangKatara, and more, BBC Sherlock teas that includes Sherlock Holmes (of course ;) ), John Watson, and more, and Tales and Tea Leaves (a Hobbit/Lord of the Rings set) that includes Barrels of TeaElevenses, and more. This is a part of the Doctor Who set which includes 9, 10, 11, River Song, Amy Pond and Rory Williams-Pond. All of the flavors are wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey!

The Tea: I was a bit skeptical about this tea at first because of the strong coconut smell. Not that I don't like coconut, but coconut in a tea? That's a bit of a stretch. But I tried it and I really enjoyed it. The coconut tea with a twist of vanilla, a hint of applem and light assam melody make a coconut cream pie-like taste. It's light and playful just like the Eleventh Doctor. ^ ^ It's become one of my favorite teas of the set. I'm sure the Doctor would approve and it would go perfectly with a jammie dodger. ;)

Serving Recommendations:  I steeped this tea for three minutes and 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. Some of these teas you can buy individually for about $10 a pouch or $4 for a sample tin.

So how good is it? This is one of my favorites of the set. It's a bit too unusual to have regularly but I'll definitely have it on occasion. Perhaps while watching Doctor Who. ^ ^

Have you tried this tea? What did you think of it? Have you seenDoctor Who? 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)

  1. Are you serious??? ARE YOU SERIOUS??? There's an online tea shop that makes fandom blends??? My Christmas shopping is going to be halfway done in like ten minutes. This is the coolest thing. You are my favorite person today.

    They even have Fringe, Lizzie Bennett and Merlin!!!

    1. Yep there is. ^ ^ It's amazing. Aw thanks. You made my day. ^ ^= I have lots more reviews of the their teas. They have The Hobbit, Avengers, Sherlock, and Avatar: The Last Airbender too. They're so good.

  2. I'm just curious, where does one obtain such teas? And how expensive are the teas you usually buy?

    1. I always cover how much the teas I review are in the "How much is it and where can you get it?" section in the review with a link. Individually you can get a pouch for about $10, a sample tin for $6 or you can get a sampler set that includes six teas for about $20. I do the sampler because it is cheaper. This is true for all Adagio Teas. Teas from other companies vary.
