Tea Tuesday: Captain Mal

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*

Captain Mal

How I found it: I'm back with another fandom set from Adagio Teas. I've had my eyes on this one for a while and now I've finally gotten the Firefly set! Shiny! Any Firefly fans out there? Then this is the set for you. I'll be reviewing the six teas of this set: Serenitea, Captain Mal, Inara, Zoe, Jayne, and River Tam.
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, RWBY set, and Divergent set from!

The Tea: The first thing I thought when I drank this tea was, "Oh my gosh it smells like Nathan Fillion!" Not that I picture what Nathan Fillion smells like in my head. ^ ^' I'm a bit of a fan of his lol. This tea is certainly manly and bold like Captain Mal from the Chocolate Chip, chocolate chips, and cocoa nibs, and then tangy, mischievous, and a little bloody from the blood orange. And kind yet stern from the Almond Oolong. It is such a yummy blend! It definitely makes me aim to misbehave. ;)

Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for three 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? Love this tea! It is unique and tastes just like Captain Mal. If he has a taste ... XD Four stars.

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

  1. *chokes* FIREFLY TEA? Can we talk about the $5 gift card? Fandom tea is great but Firefly is life. And you made it sound so delicious...

    Really though, this is awesome...

  2. Yep yep. ^ ^ Sure. I would need an email address to send it to you. If you feel more comfortable you can give it to me over Facebook or Twitter private message. I promise this isn't a scam. It's really awesome ^ ^

    It is! Thanks for commenting!

  3. Mmmmmm. Chocolate and orange pair well together anyway, but blood orange and chocolate? I've never watched Firefly (*bows head in shame*), but I would totally try the Captain Mal tea based on your review.

  4. It's really yummy. The blood orange is richer. It's a really good show. One season and movie, but so worth it. I'm so glad you like the review! Have you ever had tea with blood orange in it? Thank you so much for commenting!

  5. You're welcome! I haven't tried tea with blood orange in it yet... But I like blood oranges themselves, and I recently had blood orange gelato for the first time. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm.... :) So I definitely want to try a tea version!

  6. Blood orange gelato sounds delicious! I love gelato! You totally should try the tea version!
