Tea Tuesday: Kaylee

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 decided to mix it up this month and get teas that are from two different fandoms. Whaaaaaaaaaaat? I have the last four Firefly Teas from Adagio Teas: Wash, Kaylee, Shepherd Book, and Simon Tam. Then the last tea will be Patched aka the Nick Fury blend from the Avengers set. Don't miss out on the other teas I've reviewed from these sets! FireflySereniteaCaptain MalInaraZoeJayne, and River Tam. Hero's Recovery (the Avengers): ExiledPlayboyStars & StripesMean & GreenDouble Agent, and Sharp Shooter.

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, Divergent set, Firefly, and Fruits Basket set from!

The Tea: At first sniff, I knew this tea was going to be amazing. It smells very strongly of strawberries with the bitterness of dark chocolate near the end. When brewed it, the teas the color of Kaylee's dirty blonde hair. It tastes very strongly of the wild strawberry tea, cream tea, rose hips, raspberry leaves, and strawberry pieces. The flavor is very girly and floral with a sprinkle of romance. This made me think of the sweet and adorable person Kaylee is. She's always smiling and she always likes to see the best in people. She's endearing. 

The aftertaste is a bit bitter from the Valentines tea which contains strawberry, rose, and dark chocolate flavors with cocoa nibs. This reminds me of Kaylee's greasy mechanic side. She may be sweet, but she'd not afraid to get down into the bowels of Serenity to make sure her girl is doing well. I think Kaylee would much enjoy this tea. It suits her perfectly. 

The tea does taste a bit fancy.
Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for six minutes and added sugar and cream. 

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 or $4 for a sample tin.

So how good is it? I really enjoyed this tea. Four stars!

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