The Love Dalek Tea from Adagio Teas (Custom Blends)


CuppaGeek’s Review:

Love Dalek Tea (from Adagio Teas Custom Blend platform) is a blend based off of the Doctor Who series, one of my personal favorite.   After taking a whiff of the dry leaf mix, you can almost taste a white tea flavor with notes of tart cherry and hibiscus. A great play on flavor-tart and floral.

Brewed up with water at 190F and allowed 3 minutes to steep, I was eager to take my first sip.  In this blend it seems, black tea is king.  I was eager for those white floral notes to pop out and play with the tart cherry flavorings added- but that didn’t happen right away.

At the very beginning of each sip, you know that the black tea reigns supreme.  What I was hoping would be a lovely floral cherry tea with a slight astringency, turned into a heavy handed astringent hibiscus tea party.

But I wasn’t ready to just say, this isn’t my cuppa.  After all, this is a Doctor Who blend.  So I prepped a few more sessions with this tea. And Eureka! After third infusion I was finally able to pull out a lovely white tea astringent tea with pops of floral and cherry notes.  Delicious and exactly what I was looking for.

So what are my final thoughts on this tea? As confused as the blend seems to be, I think there is potential. This may be a tea that needs a good solid cold brew to allow all the flavors an opportunity to shine.  I’m glad I have a few servings left to try just that!

All in all, I still love the idea behind Custom Blends from Adagio Teas. Drinking a tea dedicated to your favorite fandoms just gives one warm fuzzies!!

I am a late 30s something mom who loves her family, will be getting married to a wonderful guy and has 4 kids (2 mine-2 his). We have a beautiful life together and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun. I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn’t bumble the first infusion.

Besides SororiTea Sisters, I’m also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
