Tea Tuesday: Amity

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'm back with another fandom set from Adagio Teas. This is the same site I bought the Avengers set,Sherlock set, Tolkien set, Avatar: the Last Airbender set,  Doctor Who set, Attack on Titan set, and RWBY set from! The set for the next few weeks is the Divergent set! I thought it appropriate what with Insurgent coming out on March 20th. I'm really excited about that. ^ ^

Though I didn't enjoy the book very much, I'm hoping the movie will be better. It seems like it's going to be, though I'm still not sure about Johanna. SCAR! *clears throat* Moving on ... This set includes the five factions plus that one special one: Abnegation, Dauntless, Erudite, Amity, Candor, and Divergent. They all smell delicious, let's see how they taste!

The Tea: Amity is actually my aptitude and this tea definitely fits its faction and is certainly unique. The sweet and spicy sour apple, the rooibos cinnamon apple and the apple pieces remind me of the apple grove which is so key in Insurgent. The sweet potato gives a very earthy, organic taste. The extra cinnamon and marigold flowers give a happy taste to the mix. 

Overall this tea smells very pleasant and fresh like a fall harvest. It is an unusual mix, but it fits Amity perfectly. I could see Amity drinking this tea with cane sugar to relax after a long day in the fields. 

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 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? Though this tea is certainly unique it is a bit too unique for me to absolutely love it, but it is definitely a good tea and very appropriate for the faction. Four stars!

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