This is a fandom blend from the wild west of build-your-own blends on Adagio Teas. I couldn’t find an exact match on tea flavors and fandom styling on the website, so I am going by look and taste for this tea. (Don’t worry there are a few other Daryl Dixon blends on the site if you need to get your fandom fix).
The character of Daryl Dixon kicks plenty of zombie butt on the Walking Dead, so it is only appropriate that his tea blend is driven by high-caffeine yerba mate. This mate is the green (unroasted) variety, and brings a little fresh citrus note into the brew alongside all its usual earthiness.
I believe this blend also contains a flavored green tea that helps brighten up the lemon undertones even further. As is appropriate for any gory zombie show, this tea also features a dose of Blood Orange herbal tea. The proportion of blood orange is small, so it adds a bit of juicy orange flavor without taking over the blend. The brewed tea is green-yellow in color, with only the tiniest hint of pink from the powerful hibiscus.
This is a blend that packs a punch without being too bold or bitter. When you need an unconventional pick-me-up, try brewing a cup like this yerba mate Daryl Dixon blend.

#FanaticFriday: The Archer Tea (Formerly Daryl Dixon Tea) from Adagio Signature Fandom Blends is today’s tag and The Archer Tea (Formerly Daryl Dixon Tea) from Adagio Signature Fandom Blends is today’s tea! That’s right it’s another #FanaticFriday Tea here at Sororitea Sisters! This one is for the fans of The Walking Dead!
Season 7 of The Walking Dead premieres on October 23rd so we still have over a month to go before we get our fix. In the meantime I thought I would tide you over with this tea blended by Chris Diaz.
When I initially bought this tea it was called Daryl Dixon but has since been re-named The Archer. Either way I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings of this blend. #FanaticFriday: The Archer Tea (Formerly Daryl Dixon Tea) from Adagio Signature Fandom Blends has ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ in there! Okay – maybe not – but it has a LOT of ingredients! There is a LOT going on here but it all seems to work!
I’m enjoying the flavored Yerba Mate base here but it has a bit more Hibiscus than I would like in one sitting. But that doesn’t rip me away from this tea! I also like that he used Green Tea in this one as well. I think that the Ginseng counteracts the hibiscus a tad but maybe the addition of more ginseng and by using a bit less of the hibiscus this would have been (even more) my speed. There is a LOT of citrus here and I like that but it almost encourages the hibiscus to shine more – almost like a pier pressure type situation.
Having said that…I do like The Archer Tea (Formerly Daryl Dixon Tea) from Adagio Signature Fandom Blends. I prefer it iced. I think this is a wonderful tribute to the character and the series and can’t wait for Season 7 of The Walking Dead!
