So I have been super busy recently with college and I’m just dropping by to say hello and log this tea! :3
When I saw this item in stock on the site I was pretty interested; but I had no idea that the quality would be so good on the item. The tin that this is presented in is really lovely. The inside of the lid has constellations on it and the whole this is actually quite large. I won’t be able to fit it in my tea cupboard due to how full it is atm. The tea itself is just beautiful as well. There are the cornflowers, lemongrass, chamomile, and lots of tea floating around in there. You have to mix it around quite a bit as the rooibos, which makes up the largest section of the mix, tends to settle at the bottom of the tin.
Flavor wise it almost reminded me of a toned down roobios lemon cloud (which I really did not enjoy). They obviously reigned in the woodsy flavor by adding a lot of other flavors to the mix. So there is a slight herbal, lemon, and very light grapefruit flavor to this. It is a pretty great tea for the price and certainly comes well presented; which I greatly appreciate and enjoy. If anyone was on the fence about ordering one of these tins I’d suggest to do it just because of the value. Some of the weights vary, but this was 4oz+a tin for only $9 and that’s a steal compared to other big companies (cough Teavana cough).
edit :3 So in case anyone wanted to really see the inside of the tin and the tea I’ve added a picture on my blog:

I’d never seen the zodiac teas at adagio. They look so neat!

Yeah! I didn’t know until recently and I found them while randomly searching one day. I don’t really have the space/money to buy the set, but they offer all of them $18 off if you order all 12.
