My Pen Pal and book blogger extraordinaire Jenny Colvin (http://readingenvy.blogspot.com/) created this tea over at Adagio, and enclosed a pouch with her last letter. Earl Grey Creme. Coconut. Yes please! Once I inhaled the delightful fragrance of the dried blend, I wondered why I never thought to combine these flavors — they smell SO GOOD together.
The brewed tea is absolutely delicious. The creme together with the coconut is swoonworthy, and then the light citrus adds elegance and prevents the blend from being too over the top dessert-y. Perfect sans additions (although I could see adding a little milk and sugar for a decadent treat. I can see making a tea latte for a really, really decadent treat, too!).
Magic! Jenny, how did you think of Earl Grey and Coconut together? Brilliant!
The bag of tea smells wonderful! The flavours definitely calmed down after brewing, and it left a nice light fruity tea. I drank most of the cup without anything added, then added a bit of sugar near the end to experiment. I think I actually preferred it without the sugar – you can notice the flavours better that way. Very very delicious!
i have a good maybe 25 teas logged that i never made notes for. and i’m gonna try to add notes for all of them but let’s be honest, they will probably all have very little to do with the tea and much more to do with The Avengers or dancing.
i just placed a davidstea order too. i used to place one every what felt like 5 weeks. this is probably my first one in half a year or something. much more reasonable. i got my boyfriend mates cuz they are his fave and i got 3 other teas i haven’t tried yet but have coconut in them. i also got some tea bags for brewing. cuz i like them even though they are dumb expensive. so if you have any teabag recommendations i’d love to hear them! i would like unbleached and natural blah blah, but whatevs. i’m open. :)
KIKI WHY YOU NO TASTE GOOD.
Seriously. I’ve had him twice and he was amaaaazing.
When I drank him yesterday, I have no idea what I did, it just… tasted so off.
This makes the most delicious iced tea. It tastes like candied strawberries with a hint of sweet vanilla.
Leif & I have been enjoying breakfast together (Drew is at a summer college class). We’ve also been perusing the Adagio Site, planning our next order. So far it looks like we may go with the following:
Bilbo Brew – re-order
Tardis – Re-order
One of the Team Fortress Two’s fandom blends for Leif
Avada Kadavra (I just have to have it because of the name…lol)
More Cowbell (gotta have it!)
I have to remember to send a $5 off coupon to a friend. Anybody else want one? :D
Regarding Kili – it’s a blend of Ceylon Sonata, Vanilla, Oriental Spice, & Ginger. It’s not bad, nicely gingery. Leif likes it with creamer. Decent with breakfast, especially a sweet breakfast like pancakes, but we both prefer Bilbo Brew, in part because of the Assam base, but also just because it is tastier!
Kili again today :)
He definitely is my FAVOURITE in the entire The Hobbit sampler set.
This is probably going to be the first to run out and when it does, I’m definitely going to buy the bigger 3ox bag!
sipdown! needed something a little spicy earlier today. Still not a fan of that adagio taste, but it’s not seriously terrible or anything.
Yuuuuuum. From the aroma right out of the tin, you know this one’s going to be good!
A really nice chai blend, perfect with milk and sugar. Definitely one that I’ll be upset with when I finish it all up!
Kili is the reckless one. the younger one. definitely the flirty-er one.
this tea is all chai-ish with it’s cinnamon and it’s cloves and it’s cardamom. and it has a strange scent that i cant quite place and don’t quite like. perhaps it’s due to the way the SLIGHT vanilla mixes in?
i love ginger and i love vanilla too. but i don’t get much of them in this cup.
i don’t know. this tea is confusing. kind all over the place. but it does blend in the end i suppose. haha, just occurred to me, this is probably appropriate for ADHD Kili.
(i’m thinking about making a ginger-nilla lapsang blend via adagio? or maybe just lapsang vanilla.)
a powerful dwarvish head bonk to you Shadowfall!
thank you terri for this one! I’m not sure if it was the steeping or something i did but this tastes mostly just like a slightly spicy vanilla black. However, i am a-ok with that because it’s pretty tasty! it still has that weird black taste that all adagio blends seem to have that i dislike but it’s not objectionable in this blend because of the vanilla :) Thanks terri!
I picked this to drink because of the ginger root. It’s been on my shelf since my last Adagio order, when I picked out several of the Hobbit blends. I am a fan of Cara McGee’s blends so far, & this one is warming with spices, kind of like a Chai, but different.
So I brewed 2.5 teaspoons of this in my PersonaliTea teapot for 4 minutes.
I tasted it straight but decided to add sugar and a splash of milk. The overall taste was sweet, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, all meshed together with the malty flavor of the irish breakfast mingling throughout.
