Ancient Orange from Adagio Teas. . . .

This is a sweet black with vanilla and cream notes. It also, supposedly, has some orange in there, but it’s really faint. I was very careful to make sure some of the orange peels were in there, too. That’s slightly disappointing, but not all that much, because the tea is overall pleasant.

Plus, the packaging. Guys. The packaging.

Its cover illustration is basically the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

It looks like those cartoon cereals my mother would NEVER let me have. Just like those cereals, my mom is a MONSTER. A monster of HEALTH. She has a medical degree, and she seems to think that the whole “being a doctor” thing qualifies her to know that pure sugar shouldn’t be dumped straight into kids’ bodies first thing in the morning.

Phooey.

So I get to enjoy the cereal now, 30 years later, in the form of tea.

It’s delish.

"Hey, everybody! I'm Leah, a graphic designer from Pennsylvania, United States. I live with my husband and rescue mutt in a house with colorful walls. I love fonts, colors, animals, flowers, novels, illustration, geeking out, and -- obviously! -- tea. I've only been heavily into tea for about a year, but I've found I tend to prefer loose blended black dessert teas. I normally drink them hot western style without anything added; if I add in some vanilla almond milk or honey, I promise I'll mention it! When I'm not blogging here, I'm blogging at leahlucci.com/starling or posting to Instagram (super_starling), so come say hi!"
