Tea Tuesday: Ruby Rose

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*

Ruby Rose

How I found it: I'm back with another fandom set from Adagio Teas. I've had my eye on this set for a while. It's the RWBY (pronounced Ruby) set! If you haven't heard of this YouTube anime, you must watch it. It is so good! Don't believe me? Check out the trailer, and see how awesome this series is. If you like it, perhaps you'd like some character-inspired tea to drink while watching it. This set includes Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long.

This is the same site I bought the Avengers set, Sherlock set, Tolkien set, Avatar: the Last Airbender set, Doctor Who set, and Attack on Titan set from!

The Tea: This tea is fantastic. It not only fits Ruby perfectly, but it is delicious. The summer rose tea (Yes, that is also the name of Ruby's mother, Summer Rose. I thought that was so amazing.) is flowery, bold, with a calm taste which refers to not only Ruby's last name, but her trademark flower petals and her calm, collective during battle. 

The strawberries alludes to her hyper, kind, and caring side. The little strawberry pieces and rose petals reference the colors of her clothing and hair highlights and an extra burst of cuteness. I could totally see Ruby drinking this. I adored it. I guzzled my first cup in five minutes. This is my second favorite tea I've had from Adagio Teas. My first is the Katara blend. I highly recommend this tea. I've never tasted anything like it. It is scrumptious!

Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for five 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 tin and you get a goodly amount of tea since you only need about a teaspoon per cup. You get it for $4 for a sample tin, $10 for a 3 oz. pouch and $19 for 5 oz. tin. 

So how good is it? This tea is amazing. If you're looking for a unique tea with a sweet berry flavor, then this is the tea for you.

Have you tried this tea? What did you think of it? Have you seen RWBYWho's your favorite character?
