Tea Tuesday: Inara

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. 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: This tea is a perfect fit for Inara! Though I don't agree with her "profession," she is a kind a beautiful lady character. The Thai Chai and Oriental spice blend together into a rich taste that reminds me of Inara's affinity for Asian couture. 

The hint of lemongrass and the Assam melody remind me of her sassy banter with Mal. Lastly the rose hips, safflower and raspberry pieces make me think of her kindness and gentleness especially toward Kaylee and the colors of those remind me of the colors of her dresses.

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! I was skeptical with the lemongrass, but I really enjoyed it. I'll definitely be drinking this again. Gosh, all this Firefly talk makes me want to re-watch the show lol. 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)
