Forest Friend blend by Leslie Kiesler on Adagio Teas

Adagio Teas is where I credit my loose leaf tea beginnings. They have a variety of teas for both beginners and experts, but their success comes from their lively fandom blend community.  There’s a themed-blend for every movie, book, and video game out there.  I know I’ve had a great time designing my own flavors, and I’m always interested in trying new blends from other tea lovers. My favorite summer blend of late has been Forest Friend by Leslie Kiesler.  This blend is a homage to the main creature in the film, My Neighbor Totoro, of Studio Ghibli fame.  To Read More

Dragon’s Palm Tree from Adagio Teas. . .A Signature Blend

What a light, sweet, darling delight of a tea! This white/peach/strawberry/apricot delight is the tea equivalent of that coral color all the cool kids are wearing these days. Almost pastel, but with that punch of color. Every time I sip it, I’m a little surprised. I feel like I’m getting POW!ed in the face by a cartoon character. Like those old Batman onomatopoeia typographic masterpieces: Robin would be like “Holy unexpected flavor blast, Batman! This dragon tea is fierce!” And Batman would say, “not NOW, Robin! Get the Bat Shark Repellent!” Robin would say, “Will that work on dragons?” Batman Read More

Happily Headless from Adagio Teas. . . GoT Inspired Tea!

Now that Game of Thrones is six seasons in and the books have been around even longer, I think it is safe to say that referencing Ned’s death doesn’t really require a spoiler warning. I mean you would basically need to have lived under a rock to not know the shocking decapitation that befell the Stark patriarch. I guess people should have seen it coming when the show cast Sean Bean in the role given he is known for being killed off. In fact, this particular blend is merely one of a series of teas inspired by the many Sean Read More

Chew-brew from Adagio Teas (Signature Blend)

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Red Rooibos/Mate Where to Buy: Adagio Teas Tea Description: Warm and fuzzy or strong and bold? Either way Chewy always has your back. Learn more about this tea here. Taster’s Review: So lets start this off with saying I am a huge science fiction/fantasy/horror nerd.  The horror genre is my favorite but after having kids you learn that watching a good ol fashioned movie like Halloween or Aliens doesn’t fit into your schedule.  I learned to adjust and started watching more science fiction movies with my kids.  My boys love Star Wars.  Especially my nine year old.

Smooth Sophistication from Adagio – Signature Blend by Rachana Carter

My first sip was FULL of smoothness right away! My 2nd sip was relaxing and still velvety on the tongue. Mild Black Tea Taste and Mild Earl Grey…my first time around but I have had other attempts since – with this tea – that have been quite bold…either way it’s a great cup!
