Tea Tuesday: Yang Xiao Long

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*

Yang Xiao Long

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, and fits Yang so well. The orange peels are yellow like Yang's costume, the tiger eye tea is very fiery, feisty, adventurous like she is, the caramel make me think of her kindness, and the earl grey moonlight makes me think of her shady past. I could totally see Yang ordering this tea in a coffee shop. I'm sure caramel is one of her favorite flavors and this tea is full of caramel goodness. 

Serving Recommendations: I steeped this for five minutes and added sugar and caramel macchiato creamer. So yummy!

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? I loved this tea! Such an awesome and unique taste and so fitting for Yang. Five stars! The RWBY set has turned out to be the best set of teas I've purchased so far.

Have you tried this tea? What did you think of it? Have you seen RWBYWho'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)

And this is the end of the RWBY set! Next up is the Divergent set!
