Tardis Eleven Geronimo from Tea and Absinthe. . . . .

Okay, guys I have a confession to make. I have no idea what the name of this tea is referencing. I don’t know if I just live under a rock or if I am too young for the reference, so it took me a while to gain interest in trying this tea. But today I was digging through my little tea sample box and wanted to try something different. I did a google search to see what this tea was all about and on the company’s description it mentions vanilla custard- that is one of my favorite flavors!!! So I Read More

TARDIS Eleven – Geronimo! from Tea and Absinthe. . . . . .

“TARDIS Eleven – Geronimo!” is a classic black with a sweet vanilla kick. I drank this “vanilla cream custard” flavored tea iced, which totally hyped up its sweetness. It’s got a gentle tastiness that I can readily identify with the Matt Smith Doctor Who. Classic black tea = the formality of the bow tie. Vanilla = the charm of the fez. Is that what they were going for? I’m not sure. But I’m going to go ahead and make those associations. I took notes on this, because I was drinking it away from the computer. Though this IS a Dr Read More

TARDIS Ten – Allonsy! from Tea & Absinthe. . . .

I STILL haven’t gotten into Doctor Who…I know…I know…shame on me! But one day – not too long ago – I was feeling adventurous and decided to jump into TARDIS Ten – Allonsy! from Tea & Absinthe. Why was I being adventurous just by drinking this tea? Because of the banana, of course! Some of you already know my hate-hate relationship with bananas. I want to like them – I do – but thus far it just hasn’t happened! I will say for an ingredient I dread so much this was a mighty fine flavored tea! Ingredients include: black tea, Read More

Whouffle From Adagio’s Signature Blends

  Being a Whovian, I have a soft spot for anything Doctor Who related. Especially for any Doctor Who teas. I can’t get enough of them. So I just had to try this one. This particular blend even screams out more to me since it isn’t an earl grey blend. Whouffle is a blend of almond and raspberry black teas mixed with vanilla oolong. There is also a generous dose of cinnamon thrown in. With Adagio Signature Blends, they can heavy with the black teas and taste muddy. This has to be one of the best ones I’ve ever had. Read More

Rose & The Doctor from Pinch of Geek

I have to say I have no personal connection with the tribute story behind this tea but I was excited to try Rose & The Doctor from A Pinch of Geek regardless! I know Nichole (AKA Cuppageek) is a major fan of the show and I have to say I am almost to the point of wanting to start the series! Perhaps this tea is the final push I need? Rose & The Doctor from A Pinch of Geek is basically an Earl Grey with a heavy load of aromatic rose petals. There are also hints of lavender and vanilla, Read More
