Another winner from the Traveling Tea Box! I think I’ve been fond of every tea so far from this box with the exception of the Butter Truffle, and even that one wasn’t too terrible! I wasn’t sure what was in this Jane Austen Mafia blend, but I had read many favorable reviews of it, and decided to give it a go. I was happy to discover that it is blackberry, vanilla and cream. Adagio’s cream is one of my all-time favorites. The dry leaves smelled like maple syrup to me, but the tea itself is all heavy cream with a hint of berry sweetness. The flavor of this one is absolutely perfect – juicy blackberry with a sweet cream finish. The strong aftertaste is of blackberry and vanilla and it lingers nicely. There are also delicious malty undertones that keep me wanting to take just one more sip! This one is definitely going on the to-order list. Thank you, Traveling Tea Box, for making my wish list that much longer! :)

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs with pieces of green blackberry leaves.

I’ll have to try Adagio’s Cream since Adagio & cream teas are some of my favorites on their own. :D

I really liked this one, hope you do too. And Tea Sipper, Adagio’s cream is definitely worth a try! I like cream teas a lot too :)

This is on my wish list for the name alone!

Cavocorax

Haha. It’s half the reason I bought it, truth be told. That and TARDIS – I got someone on Steepster in the US to order both of those for me and send them to me in Canada just so I could finally get my hands on it.

Josie Jade

I loved the name, too! Glad the tea was awesome also! :)
