i freakin love Cara McGee’s lapsang blends. she just goes for it. balls out bold. and how accurate for the brash, aggressive, and charming Tony.

remember, i am the person who pushes Cara’s Smaug tea blend on everyone, so take that into consideration. but i suspect that i will always think that lapsang and ginger make an excellent blend. The Apothecary said that her bag wasn’t lapsangy enough. but mine has a good balance. the ginger is mild, but i get a nice bit of lapsang on the nose. the blend still has a steady foot in “black tea” territory. overall, smells INTENSE but is really really easy to drink. i bet it’s gonna go fast out of my cupboard.
(when i opened the bag that first time, my roommate was all “i can smell it from over here wowza”)

at this point, the only teas i buy from adagio are Cara’s lapsang blends. and the fact that she makes them for my fandoms, and they are perfect for sipping all winter long while i read mega piles of hawt Avengers fic, is really just a bonus. a really really special awesomesauce bonus.

I love Cara McGee’s blends as well. They are the blends I’ve tried from Adagio. My favorite was Bilbo Brew, which I am still mourning the loss of.
