Tea Tuesday: Erudite

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:  This tea is very posh just like the erudite with a base of Irish breakfast giving it a refined flavor and the lemongrass, lemon balm, and lemon verbena, making it taste curt and stern. The sweetness of the ginger alludes to the fact there is some humanity buried behind the cold smarts of the faction. 

It tastes very healthy. I imagine Erudite food very healthy. I could see them drinking this tea in the early morning and giving a lesson on the history of tea and its health benefits. I like that the lemongrass isn't too overwhelming, because if you've been following me for any amount of time, lemongrass isn't my favorite. 

Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for four minutes and added cream and sugar though I think Erudite would take it without anything ... 

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? It wasn't my absolute favorite nor was it the most unusual tea I've tasted, but it was pleasant and very fitting for Erudite!

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