Tea Tuesday: I've Got the Moves Like Jeager

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*

I've Got the Moves Like Jeager

How I found it: I'm back with another fandom set from Adagio Teas. I've had my eye on this one for a while and I'm so excited I finally got it. This is the Attack on Titan set which includes Erin Jeager, Mikasa Ackermen, Armin Alert, Sasha Blouse, Levi Rivaille, and Zoe Hange blends. Attack on Titan is one of my favorite animes and I'm so excited to finally try the teas! This is the same site I bought the Avengers set, Sherlock set, Tolkien set, Avatar: the Last Airbender set, and Doctor Who set from!

The Tea: This tea isn't what I pictured Erin Jeager's tea would taste like, but I still enjoyed it, and it does have elements of his character. I normally don't like lemon grass, but it adds a spunky, zesty, zing that reminds me of Erin's determined personality. The spearmint and peppermint teas add a freshness that reminds me of Erin's softer side and lingering flavor that reminds of the lingering impression Erin gives one. 

The lemon grass wasn't too overwhelming like I've had in other blends which was a comfort for me. The blend reminded me a bit of a lemon coughdrop, but it's still a rounded, unique flavor. It's a light tea that steeps green. I would have pictured a black tea for Erin, but this is still a delicious blend that reflects him. 

Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for six minutes 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. 

So how good is it? This is a really unique and delicious tea and it reflects the characters. Four stars!
