Tea Tuesday: Weiss Schnee

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*

Weiss Schnee

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 was my least favorite blend of all of the RWBY teas, but still they were all amazing. Not one I wouldn't have again. 

This tea definitely fits Weiss. The tea is actually white. The Berry Blues tea gives a strong and tart berry flavor which relates to Weiss's negative personality; the White Blueberry reminded me of her ice abilities, white hair and icy personality; the dominant chamomile flavor alludes to her sweet side which is hidden in their, and the rose hips adds an extra tint of sweet. It's a very tasty tea that I'm sure Weiss would enjoy if she could try it.

Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for six 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 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? It's definitely a good and unique tea, I just like others better. The flavor was a bit too light for me. Four stars!

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