I’ve had this one in my swap drawer for ages. Terri Harplady sent it my way back in the early days of our tealationship :-)

She has written about this a lot, but for some reason I haven’t tried it. I think because it’s an adagio tea and I don’t often love those. But I need to make some space in my swap drawer for a swap coming from yyz, so time to get to work!

This is actually really nice. Not at all what I expected. Very smooth and drinkable. I can’t see myself reordering, but I will very much enjoy this mug! Thanks Terri!

ETA: As this cooled and I continued with my day while sipping on it, I liked it more and more. Very sad to hear it’s no longer available, would have seriously considered an adagio purchase! But, I can wait for a version from Stacy.

Sadly, this tea was discontinued for legal reasons. :(
However, I’m planning on having Ms Stacy make me an even better version. I need to get on with that! It will be my precious, my birthday present! LOL

TastyBrew

Really? Why? That seems strange. Not just the name but the blend itself?

TastyBrew

I’d love to try a version made by Stacy!

Terri HarpLady

There was some legal issue having to do with the artwork, or the tea’s names, or something, like a copyright issue, so Adagio discontinued the entire line. Luckily, I purchased the last commemorative tin! If you decide to do an Adagio order, I highly recommend Cara McGee’s fandom blends. I’ve enjoyed quite a few of them, & this one was the best. Who knows, maybe she’s reformulated it under a different name? I’m still gonna have Ms Stacy make me something similar, only even better because the quality of the tea will be better to start with!

Amariel

I really love this one too, and have thought about using the same combination for a new blend (maybe for a different fandom…maybe for a Molly Weasley blend?)….but I’d love for Stacy to do this too.

Terri HarpLady

I told Stacy I want to get the ball rolling, so I’ll keep you girls posted!

Nattie

Just came across this, and I’m sure you already know, but they’re now back on sale after Cara changed the names to get around the copyright issues ^^

Like I said, you probably already know, but just in case you didn’t!

Terri HarpLady

What??? I didn’t know that!

Amariel

Oh, excellent! This one is really fantastic.

Nattie

Glad I could help, then! (: it’s on the adagio fandom blends page under ‘Tea for Travellers’ I think (:

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
