Tea Tuesday: River Tam

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*

River Tam 

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: I love this tea! It is certainly my favorite of this set! Like River Tam it is sweet and strange. The tea is a very floral, sweet, and feminine tea with the summer rose, vanilla, marigold flowers, rose petals cornflowers and reminds me of River's innocent and gentle girl side. The earl grey green adds an odd taste into the mix which makes me think of River's more not all there side. Poor girl. I feel so bad for her. She's been through so much. I wish I could give her a cup of this tea for comfort her!

Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for three minutes and added sugar and milk.

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? This tea is amazing! Buy it. Drink it. Love it. Five 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 Tea!

And that's it for the Firefly set. :( But more tea reviews are to come! Don't you worry! Next week is the Birthday blend from Adagio Teas!

  1. Oooh, sounds delicious! I'm glad you enjoyed it! But, now that you have tried them all, I have to think about what I want... Hmmmm.

  2. It is so scrumptious! Hee hee. This one is a pretty awesome one, but it depends on your tastes. Do you have a top three? Thanks for commenting!

  3. Zoe, Inara, and Mal are looking like my top three, but I'm still thinking. Which was your favorite of those I mentioned?

  4. Out of those either Inara or Zoe. Zoe is more spicy and Inara is more fruity.

  5. Hmmm... It'll be a tough decision. Maybe I'll have to get both. Thanks for your help, and reviewing!

  6. Haha both is good. You're so welcome! You'll have to tell me how you like them. ^ ^
